It can be tricky thinking of presents for loved ones at Christmas time and unless they've given you some ideas or dropped a few hints it can be easy to feel stick at what to get them.
I've put together a selection of what I think are the best Christmas gift ideas for anyone who's into health/fitness, enjoys a healthy lifestyle or is just a massive foodie! I've got ideas for a smaller budget as well as slightly more luxurious options, so hopefully there'll be something for everyone.
The Subscription Box
I love the idea of giving a subscription to something for Christmas, it's exciting having something new come in the mail every month. There's lots of subscription boxes on the market, but the Superfoodio box is one of the best I've come across in terms of quality and quantity of products as well as price. Superfoodio boxes are monthly gift boxes full of the tastiest food products that are made with natural ingredients, free from refined sugars or any hidden nasties and all 100% vegetarian friendly! In each box you get a selection of healthy snacks and cooking ingredients, and the box is always packed full! I received the December box the other day and couldn't have been more impressed with it.The box come with 8 goodies inside including tomato pesto popcorn, a little jar of Winter spiced nut butter (so yum!), Christmas pudding energy bites, raw bliss balls, raw millionaire bites by Liva's Kitchen which are entirely vegan, gluten free and refined sugar free (unreal!), a porridge pot, Christmas spices and golden turmeric mylk kit which I can't wait to try. I was so excited by every single product, as would any foodie be! A 3 month subscription to Superfoodio is £56.85.
For The Tea & Coffee Lover
Have you got a friend or family lover who's a hot drink addict? I've got the perfect gifts for them!
We Are Littles is a company who produce the most delicious flavoured coffee - I'm currently addicted to their vanilla and hazelnut flavours. For Christmas they've not only brought out a Christmas spirit flavour coffee which is infused with natural cinnamon, orange and vanilla flavours but they are also selling a selection of gifts such as the mug and coffee jar set pictured below. You get a retro enamel mug along with a jar of Christmas coffee - what better gift for a coffee lover?!
If tea is more...well...their cup of tea, then these collection tea boxes from Twinings make a great gift. I know I love trying out different flavours of tea so these selection boxes are brilliant, there's a fruit & herbal infusions box which contains peppermint, lemon & ginger, blackcurrant & blueberry and camomile or a green tea box containing pure steamed green tea, green tea with jasmine, green tea with lemon and green tea with mint.
For someone who's always on the go this travel 'Open Your Heart To New Adventures' mug and cosy earmuffs set is such a lovely gift! The travel mug is made of a reusable double walled ceramic exterior and ceramic lid which keeps the drink inside nice and warm for much longer.
For The Cook
Do you know someone who loves to bake and to experiment in the kitchen? These super easy do-it-yourself kits are brilliant for anyone who loves making their own food from scratch or wants to spend a little more time in the kitchen. First up are the Creative Nature baking kits which I think are truly brilliant - they're allergen free, organic and inexpensive. There's a chia & cacao chocolate chip brownie kit and a chia & mulberry muffin kit, the latter is my personal favourite!
What better gift for a wannabe chocolatier or chocolate lover than a raw chocolate making kit? This Choc Chick chocolate making start kit includes everything you need to make your very own chocolate! Plus, it's gluten free, vegan, refined sugar free and soy free. If you've never tried making your own chocolate yet this is a great gift, it's so much fun!
If you want to spend a little more on a loved one or fancy getting a gift that has luxury written all over it then the next two gift ideas will fit the bill. It's always nice to give chocolates has a gift but Booja Booja chocolates are truly exquisite, the most delicious and indulgent chocolates ever. They're organic, dairy free, soya free and seriously just melt in your mouth! The box pictured is truffle selection no.1 which contains the following flavours - fine de champagne, cherry cognac, stem ginger and around midnight espresso....my mouth is watering! They come in a luxury box and should be really savoured.
My final gift is one of my favourites. I'm a huge candle lover, especially during the Winter months I always have a candle lit in my bedroom - I love the scents, the glow of the flame and warmth they bring to a room. I believe you get what you pay for when it comes to candles and Neom candles really do take some beating! The Christmas Wish 3 Wick Neom Candle comes beautifully packaged in an expensive looking box, the candle inside is heavy and just beautifully cased and the smell is one of dreams. Christmas Wish is a blend of 13 pure essential oils including mandarin, cinnamon and tonka bean and once lit it fills the room with a beautiful aroma. It's relaxing, comforting and has been expertly designed to reduce stress levels and promote a calming effect on the body. I love it!
