Nourished Holiday Gift Guide

The city is buzzing with seasonal jazz. No choice, but to jump right in. With the New Year right around the corner I am pumped. Let’s make healthy a habit (and theirs too) and make 2022 as grand as it can get.

Nothing screams “self care” more than giving health through fun + fabulous experiences and products. So skip the scarf this year, make health and mindfulness their intention too.  Cause I assure you, EVERYONE on your list can use more healthy inspo in their lives.

Here is my healthy holiday hit list which I’ll never get sick of! And I assure you, neither will they.

1. Facials never felt and left skin looking so good. Let my galpal at FACES take command of their skin. She is the queen at cleaning skin to get that afterglow we are all after. 

2. So if you want to gift them with something so now, so sustainable, so special and so earthy … You need to see and get in on the new floral venture by creative guru, Erika Pantages. Seasonal wreaths and bouquets are handcrafted from locally foraged and dried stems, grasses and pinecones. These  stunning creations are the absolute best gift to get and give. While you are at it, order some for yourself too. Take 10% your holiday order with code NOURISHED. 

3. I love all the sweet and sustainable goods at Giving Gifts (find them on Main St or shop online Use Code NOURISHED for 10% off online purchases.) This well-curated, local fave pretty much has everything for everyone including you—Jewelry, natural skin care, succulents, artisan yumminess, local pottery, kids galore, books, all the spiritual goods, loungewear. I’ll have one of each as it all feels so good. 

4. Pilates at its ultimate intensity. Indeed, Lagree West is a tough core burn, but the real strength comes from a determination and grit not to give up. This is the perfect class for the exercise nut who wants a good mental challenge.

5. Serious Booty Burn right here. The babes at MoneyMaker are the best at knowing how to kick your gear into shape in a good way. Not only do they play the best beats, but this hardcore workout is led by two super inspiring beauties. Serious, next level sh*& right here. And for us, they are doing 50% off monthly unlimited (OMG) and 25% of products so you and your bestie can do it together. So fun. Use Code NOURISHED. 

6. The Nourished Gal Pal Reboot—I come, I cook, I inspire. Your friends get hooked on health and you get to hang with them at the same time—I mean what could be better? We can do this IRT or online. Choice is yours.

7. And while you are on it … Get their 2022 off on their best foot. Gift me, their own personal nutritionist to their ultimate health. Real results are guaranteed with my One-On-One Nourished Health Consultations. Or maybe they would prefer to do it on their own … My signature 4-week online go-at-your-own pace nutrition program—The A to B Foundation—covers the importance of green leafies, healthy fats and lean proteins; how to incorporate more nutrient dense foods into the day, and so much more. This highly transformative program teaches how to eat for ultimate health. No diets, nor restrictions, but instead nourished with the knowledge of how food effects the body. 

8. Home made healthy holiday goodies all tied up with string make the best gifts for office, hosts, teachers, friends and family. Superfood Fudge and Coconut clusters make awesome dinner party desserts and a mason jar full of Kale Pesto will be the savoury one’s on your list saviour.

9. I love everything Organic Traditions stand. This amazing line of healthy products make the perfect holiday indulgences—adaptogen winter blends for lattes, hot drinks and holiday cheer. My favourite new products—energy bite mixes and pancake and waffle mixes—are an easy base to make entertaining and hosting that much smoother. Use CODE ALYSSA25 for 25% off your entire cart excluding bundles and sales. Hurry offer expires Dec 31.

10. Hand-crafted, sustainable, stunning, natural and sensationally scented candles … um yes please. Let me tell you, these candles are the essential holiday (or anytime really) must. Whether for your bestie, teacher, hostess, MIL, anyone and everyone will flip for Rise Candle Collection creations. Choose from their ready-made candles of all shapes and sizes or custom your own. Have a fav dish, glass or bowl, candle that! And what’s even more fantastic, once fully burnt, RISE comes, collects and refills. I kid you not. You will never buy another candle anywhere else. I am the ultimate candle freak and haven’t bought another candle since discovering this exceptional, local woman owned company. Use CODE NOURISHED10 for 10% off.
