2. Bella Rocket Blender: $22.94 off Amazon
This super affordable blender is one that I use almost every day to make my breakfast smoothies. It comes with various cup sizes to attach onto the blender, as well as lids that you can pop onto the container to take your smoothie on the go. For the price, this blender can’t be beat! Ideal for just 1 serving size, this is perfect for making smoothies to take to work, school, or for quick and easy afternoon snacks. Great for when you just want to make 1 smoothie and don’t want a ton of cleanup. I have loved mine ever since I got it as a secret Santa gift and have had zero complaints!
3. Lululemon Base Runner 1/2 Zip: $98.00
-If you haven’t heard of lululemon, you might as well be living under a rock somewhere. This designer fitness brand always has top quality, comfortable clothes for looking great while working out. This fitting runner’s jacket is perfect for an extral layer that looks and feels great, but also keeps you warm in all the right places. It has hole for your thumbs and an additional hand covering, as well as the perfect high neck to keep you cozy during those outdoor workouts. With five pockets, you have plenty of room to store your keys, credit cards, phone, etc. Layer it on top when on-the-go, this jacket looks just as great during a normal day on the streets as it does in the gym!
4. Bottles of Chuice: $32 + shipping for each 32 oz bottle. (bottles shown in picture above are just the 16 oz.)
-As I wrote in a previous blog post about Chuice, this new product out of Atlanta is the BEST way to get a slum dunk of nutrition in one small serving. Packed with fruits, veggies, herbs, nuts, and seeds, this product leaves in all the good stuff that “juice cleanses” leave out, (aka the fiber). Not only are these so good for your body, they also taste incredible! If you live in Atlanta or Nashville, you can pick some up at local Whole Foods Markets. If not, they ship everywhere in the U.S! They are gluten and dairy free. Order some for your Mom or Dad or a friend who just doesn’t think eating healthy tastes good. You’ll prove them wrong! Say hello to the newest form of “fast food”, you won’t regret it!
5. Cuisine Cube: $29.99 per month if you sign up for 6 months OR $34.99 per month on a monthly basis
This product is one of my absolute favorites. For a gluten free gal like me, I would be ecstatic if I received this as a gift! If you know of anyone that has to adhere by a strict gluten free diet, definitely consider this as a perfect gift. Cuisine Cube is a monthly subscription that sends you a huge box of rare to find, tasty, and healthy gluten free goodies! Ranging from pasta, cookies, crackers, to desserts and mixes, every month is a new surprise! I have found some of my favorite gluten free items from getting Cuisine Cube. It is always such a fun day when you come home to a big box on your doorstep of yummy foods you can try! You can gift someone a subscription and either just start off with a month, or try a whole 6 months for a cheaper deal. This is one you won’t want to skip out on for your gluten free loved ones. Click on the title above to see some more examples of fun foods they include!
6. Cuisinart 8 Cup Food Processor: $99.95
This easy-to-use food processor is the perfect size: not too big, not too small. Make healthy vegan desserts, dips, veggie soups, and more with this awesome food processor from Cuisinart. At a reasonable price, this should last years to come. The parts are removable and dishwasher safe, so its simple to clean. Also comes with different chop settings to cater to your recipe’s specific needs.
7. Kayla Itsine’s Bikini Body Guide 1.0: $69.97
This Australian personal trainer knows what it takes to get a hot bod-WITHOUT slaving away in the gym. After posting numerous “before & after” photos of her clients on Instagram, she became overnight famous and developed a guide so anyone can learn to train like she and her clients do. With only 28 minute workouts, these can be done at home and only 2-3x per week to see results. This is a perfect guide for college students, moms, friends, and anyone who wants to know some quick circuit workouts to get stronger, feel better, and even lose weight if that’s the goal, and in only a short amount of time! I am on Week 6 of her guide, and can personally say I feel amazing already and stronger already! These workouts are hard, quick, yet highly effective. She also has a Nutrition guide for purchase (honestly overpriced), but all you really need is the workout guide. Click the title to head to her website and check out the reviews and transformations yourself! A great gift for someone who wants to workout and see results without a fancy gym membership, personal trainer, or crazy equipment.
