Happy Sunday Everyone, and welcome to My Top Five...Last Minute Holiday Gifts for the Wellness Warrior! The Weekend Wellness Round Up has now become 'My Top Five ...' as this gives me more scope to bring my tried and tested recommendations to you in an easy to use format!
This week's top 5 is for those of you (including me) who still need to find the perfect holiday gift for the Wellness Warrior in your life. All the companies below either guarantee delivery by 12/24 (if you order by 12/21) or are gifts and services that you can deliver online.
Two of my favorite fitness apparel suppliers are both offering delivery by 12/24 if you order by 12/21 (Monday):
Athleta: a great 'go-to' for fitness wear as their cut is super flattering, and they have styles to suit all tastes. Play it safe with a section of accessories such as their beautifully designed yoga mats and yoga towels, or their cosy hats, scarves, gloves and leg warmers, or have fun with their huge selection of pants with playful prints.
Bandier: my favorite fitness fashion wear site - I have to hide my credit card every time I visit! Stocking well known cult favorites such as Spiritual Gangster and Phat Buddha, along with some lesser but even more hip designers such as Lucas Hugh and HPE (shout out to the London brands). Order today for two day shipping (in gorgeous packing).
2) Green Beauty
True Moringa: a new favorite of mine, not only are their products wonderfully effective (I love the lavender facial oil ), they are produced ethically, give back to the community in which the Moringa oil is farmed, and are based locally in MA. Even better, use the code 'JENNIFER15' at checkout to receive a 15% discount.
Beauty Heroes: I've dropped many hints to Husband Hanway about Beauty Heroes Subscription Boxes! Filled with wonderful, non toxic beauty products from industry favorites such as Josh Rosebrook and Vintner's Daughter this subscription is guaranteed to please even the most particular of Wellness Warriors (i.e. me, hint hint, Husband Hanway)....
3) Magazine Subscription
Magazine subscriptions are a great last minute gifts, and Magazines.com has all my favorite health and fitness fitness such as Health, Shape, Oprah, Self, Gluten Free Living and Mens Fitness and Mens Health.
At the moment Magazines.com is having 'Red Tag Sale', meaning most of the magazines in the Health category have up to 80% off the retail store price!
Don't discount Amazon when shopping for the fitness fanatic or healthy foodie in your life, they have so many products to help enhance health and wellbeing. How about a Crock Pot for those who want to eat healthier but are pushed for time, or my favorite Wake Up Alarm Light - the best way to start your day! For more information on the benefits of an alarm clock such as this read here.
