Healthylicious Holiday Gift Guide {My Top 10 Faves +1}

Drum roll palease... Behold the inaugural Healthylicious Holiday Gift Guide:


Elique Organics ~  Creams, Serums, Waters, Masks 

Elique Organics has been part of the secret to my supple skin for the past three years. 
A niche brand of fresh and custom-made skin nutrition products founded on the belief that one achieves radiant skin when using ingredients in their simplest form, they use certified organic, wild, and ethically-harvested ingredients including treatment-free honeys, nutrient rich oils, precious waters, and fresh herbs and flowers. BONUS: My friend, Elisha Reverby, Chef de Beaute and Founder of Elique Organics, gives back to the endangered honeybees.

Jing Ai Makeup

My organic makeup bronzer and concealer de l'annee is Jing Ai, which means 'pure love' in Mandarin Chinese. With super sensitive skin, it's always been a challenge to find something that is light, vibrant, and won't make me breakout. Everything is certified-organic, including botanical and flower owls, natural mineral pigments, and coconut oil. Beautiful skin founded on a beautiful story. Jing Ai is inspired by Donna Cristino's grandmother, Rose, who died of breast cancer. BONUS: Their packaging is 100% recycled AND they come with wildflower seed paper that you can plant!

Primal Pit Paste

For a long time I used Tom's deodorant, thinking it was the healthiest deodorant for by bod, until I discovered Primal Pit Paste! An organic, all-natural, (NO aluminum, NO parabens), deodorant that really, I mean, really, does the job. BONUS: Their tagline just about sums up what they do: Killing odor without killing your body!™

The iloveme ring is on my wish list this year, (hint, hint, Santa!), and my guess is that it will be on yours as well. Arielle Fierman, is the 
founder of the iloveme jeWELLry collection. Each ring has "iloveme" engraved in it as a reminder to love yourself. Oftentimes we forget to take care of ourselves in favor of others, so it's a great reminder! (Makes me think of string tied in a bow on your pinkie reminder technique, BUT much chicer). BONUS: Enjoy $20 OFF your order when you use the code Ilovehealthylicious (Expires 1/2/14).

Ashram Chic

I love my ashram chic turquoise mala bracelet gifted to me from the folks at Bent On Learning. I always feel fab wearing it! Ashram Chic jewelry encourages its wearers to love yourself and inspire others. They have a rainbow of colors and charms to choose from. BONUS: Order yours and enjoy FREE SHIPPING always.

Recyclights Candles by The Lucky Honeybee Apothecary

Last year I discovered these handcrafted soy and beeswax candles in recycled glass at the Hester Street Fair Pop-Up Holiday Shop in NYC and gave them to my dad and stepmom. BONUS: Melissa kindly offered to give you 15% OFF your order when you use the code HEALTHYBLISS15 at her etsy store.

Yoga Tune Up Therapy Balls

Last month I went to an omtastic yoga class where I gave myself a massage with 
Yoga Tune Up Therapy Balls and walked away feeling surprisingly relaxed and loosened up. BONUS: You don't have to shell out $50-200 every time you want a massage!
