It’s an annual tradition of mine to share the finest, purest, most luminous holiday gift ideas with you. This year’s Healthy Holiday Gift Guide is bursting with treats for the food snob, beauty maven, sacred citizen, an earth angel.
I believe in gifting with heart and purpose. Both giver and giftee should light up with love, and the beauty of it is that sparking joy and making a difference are easily combined. Scroll through Part 1 of my pointers, get inspired, and vote with your dollars. High-Vibes ahead 🙂
Lotus Wei: Fall in love with flowers. Again. Katie Hess, flower alchemist, founder of Lotus Wei and author of #Flowerevolution, shows you how you can harness the power of flowers to transform your life. I’m a longtime fan of her Flower Elixirs and Aura Mists, and meeting Katie in person at the NYC Flowerlounge book party reignited my commitment to harnessing the ethereal forces of flowers. Get a copy of her gorgeous book and stock up on the essences, mists, and serums that resonate most with you. Get 25% off sitewide until midnight Cyber Monday. Everything's so pretty so whether you’re gifting to loved ones, colleagues, or yourself, beauty will permeate your home with light.
Addictive Wellness: The best chocolate in the universe will make whoever receives it particularly jolly. Use code MIRIAM to save 10% off your order. Sweetened with stevia and xylitol, these revolutionary, scrumptious bliss treats are chockfull of tonic herbs, medicinal mushrooms, and superfoods. Vegan, paleo, organic, wildcrafted, sugar-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free, non-gmo. Choose from 6 functions: Energy, Tranquility, Beauty, Focus, Love, She. Get the super giftable classic boxes (containing 4 pieces) or secure the 100-packs for the most glorious holiday celebrations. Please keep away from dogs; Addictive Wellness is for humans only. Hand-poured with love in Los Angeles, CA. Another reason to love: Addictive Wellness donate 5% of their profits to environmental organizations such as Sea Shepherd, Oceana, and Bee Friendly. Win-win-win!
Subscribe to a newspaper: It’s vital to know what’s going on. Don’t dwell on what’s bad but see it in order to be able to change it. Subscribing to a newspaper of your choice, digital or old school, is the gift that keeps on giving throughout the year. Smarten up & transform the world. Unleash your sacred citizen.

Vital Choice: If you’re a food snob like me you only want the best quality. It’s got to be organic/biodynamic or grass-fed/wild-caught depending on what you’re going for. For the finest, most ethically wild-caught sea food I reach for Vital Choice. Their canned Portuguese Sardines and Wild Alaskan Salmon are perfect for travel; the Wild Alaskan Smoked Salmon is fantastic for your holiday & New Year’s gatherings (or Sunday brunch), and the Wild Alaskan Red King Crab Claws turn any sad evening bite into a luscious, easy dinner. You may round out your shopping by adding wild berries and grass-fed bone broth to your cart. Vital Choice ship to your doorstep free on orders $99+.
PAWS: Save a life. It’s easy! I’m a longtime lover of PAWS Chicago, the no-kill shelter for homeless dogs and cats in Chicago. They’re working on expanding the no-kill shelter model and finding loving forever homes for their residents. And you can help: Donate to PAWS as a gift to yourself or in honor/memory of a loved one. This is a great tradition to start with kids; knowing you’re making a positive difference in the lives of furry angels is way better than gifting another toy that’ll soon end up in the corner, then in the landfill. #GivingTuesday
