I've always loved shopping for holiday gifts, but since I've started being more health conscious, shopping for gifts became a bit more complicated. But it doesn't have to be that way. Find all my tips for a planet loving holiday gifts below. When shopping, focus on quality, not quantity. How wonderful would it be if you would show love not only to your friends and family but to our planet as well? Also, support your local shops and plan your holiday gift shopping according to what is available in your town or, if not possible, in your country. This means supporting your local bookshop, local toy store, or wrapping some regional specialties from farmer's market. This is even more important during the time of global pandemic when local stores had to close their doors and some of them had to built their online presence from one day to another.

For Healthy Lifestyle Lovers:
Epsom Salts: Soaking in an Epsom Salt bath is one of the most effective ways of making the magnesium your body needs, readily available.
Essential oil diffuser: Essential oil diffusers are a healthier option to scented candles that often contain harmful ingredients. Use the diffuser to make your house smell lovely. For the holiday season lavender, frankincense, clove or cinnamon are a wonderful option.
HOMEMADE GIFTS: Every year, I love to gift something homemade, whether it is baked goodies wrapped in some fancy paper or a hand made calendar for the New year with pictures of our family (makes a great gift for grandparents). Find some ideas here.
