Torie's Healthy Holiday Gift Guide
The holidays are quickly approaching and stress seems to fill the air. Isn’t Christmas supposed to be jolly and fun? Well, I don’t know about you but I am not one for malls and shopping so I decided to share with you the gifts that I buy for my family and friends from the comfort of my couch, fire on sipping on my organic vino. Yes, it can be that stress-free in the comfort of your own home. I have you all taken care of, from your best friend to sibling, and maybe an organic wine substitution for yourself who knows? Yes you matter too! Try to slow down and take it all in. I hope you enjoy.
FOR the SURFER
Marrying a surfboard shaper, what is a better gift than a custom board by Josh Hall. You can get something made just for you, the hardest part is picking out your color.
For your bestie or sista
My bestie Rose Inez makes all these beauties by hand in Santa Cruz. She also makes custom necklaces that are great personalized gifts for your favorite amigas. I love her stuff because I can wear it everyday, and do my normal activities like surf and workout with them on and at the same time wear them out with an nice outfit. I am not joking that I get a complement at least a couple times a week.
FOR THE FRIEND, SISTER OR SKIN LOVE
If you haven't heard, CBD (or cannabidiol) is increasingly being used today for its healing properties and is having a HUGELY positive impact on people's lives. Everyone needs this anti-inflammatory game changer in their lives, think of it as a multivitamin but you especially need it if you have anxiety, PMS, sleep issues, skin issues, or any inflammation.
LEEF offers a small selection of amazing, high-quality CBD products, all of which are fantastic. Their new product is everyone's favorite, Wildcrafted Skin Oil but still my all-time favorite is their Thrival Balm, perfect for sore muscles, menstrual cramps. LEEF Organics has the best products from daily tinctures to soaps

for the make-up lover
Most of us do not realize that our skin is our largest organ and most of us are putting toxic products all over our faces and bodies. Well there are some amazing companies like Kosas which would be a great gift to someone who already wears toxic make-up such as MAC.
FOR MY WINOS WHO DON’T WANT A HANGOVER
Dry Farm Wines subscriptions is for the wine lover in your life (or maybe even yourself). This wine club is different from the rest because they are the ONLY health focused wine club in the world. This wine is organic, sugar-free, low alcohol, and low sulfite, meaning it can be enjoyed without hangovers, headaches, or poor sleep. Hopefully this friend will have you over, so you can enjoy a smooth red or refreshing white together. :)
FOR THE PROTEIN EATER
A Butcher Box Subscription. What guy wouldn't love exceptionally quality meat delivered to his door each month? Just 1% of the beef consumed in the USA is 100% grass fed. Butcher Box has sourced the best quality beef and delivers it for FREE. 'Nuff said!
FOR THE BUSY WORKER, COLLAGE STUDENT OR MAMA
Gift a subscription to Thrive Market b/c it is going to save them so much time, it is a game changer, delivered to your door at almost 50% less than what you spend at the healthy stores, how do you beat that! Thrive Market is a wholesale health food retailer providing 30-50% discounted prices off your favorite health foods. You can buy it all online and they ship it to your door. Perfect for the busy mom and a great gift to keep stress-free and healthy this holiday season.
for the coffee lover
I'm sure you've heard me rave about Bulletproof, but it's not just a hype. This coffee will change your life. NO JOKE. Get a starter kit for someone you know would like to burn fat, improve cognitive function, up their energy, and have lasting health benefits.
for the superfood junkie
I'm always on the hunt for the best nutrients to add to my daily routine and now, that consists of medicinal mushrooms. And NO these don't get you high... think nature's superfood. Obviously, mushrooms aren't new but after hours of researching and recipe testing, I can confidently say that this is one addition I am welcoming with open arms and I hope you do, too. Root and Bones mushroom powders use code TVW a checkout for 15% off
for the phone addict
Do you know that EMFs are hurting all of us? From wifi, to our phones we are all in need of protection. Studies show that our current cell phones (smart phones) have raised the risk of brain cancer 4-fold, in only 5 years. And unfortunately, brain cancer is not the only risk. The Hedron EMF Shield is a patent pending and well studied device for use on cell phones and other electromagnetic radiation emitting gadgets. This device has been proven effective to shield 99.95% of radiation up to a 9G phone as well as provide up to 80% heat reduction. My suggestion is to wear blue blocking glasses, protect your devices and turn off your wifi. See my post on why here.
for the one who needs a push
Give the gift of health with my one on one nutrition consultation to a friend or a family member. A nutrition consult gift certificate makes a unique, thoughtful and practical gift idea for a close friend, a crazy busy mom, a spouse, a parent, a co worker or other loved one. It can be used for the whole family, help with weight loss, or to just learn more about eating healthy. See more here.
