The Myers Way® 2015 Holiday Gift Guide: 16 Perfect Presents to Give and Receive
The holidays are a time for sharing, and if you’ve adopted The Myers Way® this year, then why not share the gift of health this holiday season? Maybe your friends and family are curious about your new lifestyle, are impressed by your renewed energy, or are even jealous of your glowing skin.
To help your loved ones get a healthy jump start on 2016, (or to give you some ideas for your own wishlist) here are 16 useful, unique, and inexpensive gift ideas perfect for anyone following or adopting The Myers Way®!
Autoimmune Friendly Kitchen & Cooking
By now you’re probably a pro at whipping up TMW, AIP, or Paleo meals in your kitchen, and even sticking with the program while traveling. Help your friends and family get on board too with these simple gifts.
Klean Kanteen ($17)
I don’t go anywhere without a Klean Kanteen. Their stainless steel bottles are toxin-free, better for the environment than disposable bottles, and perfect for staying hydrated while on the go.
Vegetable Spiralizer ($15)
The pasta lovers in your family will love that they can enjoy gluten and grain-free versions of their favorite dishes by turning their favorite veggies into noodles!
Cast Iron Cookware ($16)
Cast iron cookware is a great addition to any home cook’s kitchen. They provide the perfect cooking surface as they are naturally non-stick, heat more evenly than other cookware, and can be used on the stove, in the oven, or on a grill. And, they don’t come with the toxin exposure risks that accompany Teflon, aluminum, and copper cookware.
Your friends and family can enjoy the absolute best in Texas BBQ with this gluten-free sauce and dry rub pack from The Salt Lick. I was never a huge BBQ fan until I visited this iconic Austin spot, and now I’m hooked – seriously, you have to try it!
Thrive Market Membership ($60)
Need the perfect gift for someone with a busy schedule? Or someone who loves to save money? Or someone who loves to give back? A Thrive Market membership is the perfect three-in-one gift! They offer healthy foods and toxin-free home goods at 25-50% below retail prices, delivered straight to your door. And for every membership purchased, they donate one to a family in need.
Plus, they’re giving one of my lucky readers a $1,000 shopping spree! Enter to win by Dec 10th using this link!

Rest, Relaxation, & Stress Relief
Our busy lives are stressful enough, and the holidays can be particularly draining. Help your favorite people recover after the holiday madness and stay stress-free all year long with these gift ideas.
Organic Herbal Tea ($7) and a Monogrammed Anthropologie Mug ($8)
Drinking herbal tea is a great way to wind down and prepare for bed at the end of a long day. My staff and I each have one of these monogram mugs from Anthropologie for drinking tea in the office and we love them!
This is one of my absolute favorite stress relief tools. It uses an external sensor on your earlobe to help you synchronize your heart rate, breath, and mind. It’s super easy to use, and it lets you set goals and track your progress, so it’s great for anyone (like me) who is very goal oriented.
Homemade gifts are meaningful and memorable, not to mention easy on your wallet. These bath salts are simple to make and smell wonderful. Plus the Epsom salt is great for relaxing achy, stiff muscles.
Another great option is lavender bubble bath from Babo Botanicals, a company founded by one of my friends from the Peace Corps that makes all-natural, certified organic, and preservative-free body products.
Amber Light Bulbs ($5)
Shopping for anyone who struggles to fall asleep or stay asleep? Amber light bulbs emit light at a different frequency than sunlight, so they can be used as it gets dark outside without disrupting your circadian rhythm. This helps you fall asleep naturally and leads to deeper sleep.
All-Natural Bathroom & Beauty
Steer clear of the toxin-laden body and beauty products, and help your relatives stock up on all-natural choices that are good for your health, good for the earth, and great for your skin.
I received this deodorant as a gift from one of the founders of Milk and Honey and I will never use another deodorant again! It can be difficult to find all-natural alternatives that actually work, but this product hits the sweet spot in that it truly is toxin-free and it keeps you feeling and smelling fresh all day.
I use the coconut vanilla scent, and the spice scented version that my husband Xavier uses is great for men.
The rich creaminess of this lotion, combined with it’s summery citrus scent, makes it the perfect pick-me-up for the dry, winter months ahead. And, it’s packed with antioxidants, aloe juice, and essential oils, so I use it every night, no matter the season.
Eye Butter from KEYS ($20)
This all-natural, anti-aging eye cream is made with cucumber and shea butter, which leaves your skin feeling luxuriously smooth. It’s the perfect gift for anyone who appreciates a little daily pampering (myself included :))
Illuminating Trio ($55)
This trio is perfect for anybody from a makeup pro to a beginner because the formulas are SO moisturizing, blend seamlessly, and offer a sheer and dewy finish making them easy enough to apply even with just your fingers. The trio includes a blush, bronzer, and highlighter for a radiant look. While the travel-friendly packaging makes it easy to throw into your bag and use while on the go. Plus, they are toxin-free and completely safe!
This is another great homemade option that anyone who enjoys a good spa treatment will love. The dry winter air can be harsh on skin, and this gentle body scrub is a perfect exfoliant.
Don’t worry, we didn’t forget about the men! This organic shave cream combines aloe vera, shea butter, and cocoa butter to both freshen and moisturize, leaving him with a close shave and a smooth finish.
