Dear friends, it has been quite an eventful year. I mean, I don’t want to come across plaintive, but I think most of us don’t mind for 2020 to come to an end, right?
I firmly believe that there is always something to be grateful for and that every unpleasant experience holds a lesson. This year came with beautiful insights and moments of appreciation for me.
When things are taken away from us or can’t be taken for granted anymore, we value it more than ever. Such as, being with friends and family. And maybe 2020 made us all realize to take (even better) care of ourselves. I personally focused (even) more on my sleep routine.
For this wellness gift guide I went all in, because of all the stress around shopping this year (preferably online), I wanted to bring you a holiday guide that would add value. Gifts that actually make a difference in a life.
I hope you find holiday gift ideas you love for yourself and your loved ones. Support brands you truly believe in, buy gifts with a meaning and gifts that will last. I also encourage you to shop locally and to think of small(er) brands.

Ultimate dry brush
Speaking of the lymphatic system, dry brushing helps the detoxifying process by increasing blood circulation and promoting lymph flow/drainage. Dry brushing also stimulates the nervous system, and makes you feel revitalized.
The Green Bowl
The Green Bowl (yes, that’s my book) is always a wonderful gift. Give the gift of delicious whole food plant-based vegan oil-free recipes for lunch or dinner.
I mean, do I need to say more?
It’s warm, comforting and it supposed to make you sleep better, a weighted blanket. It can provide similar benefits to deep pressure therapy to calm a restless body, and reduce anxiety.
Give the gift of comfort and calm that comes with a good posture and a peaceful meditation practice.
