Time for a little honesty. Who else has been procrastinating on holiday shopping this year? 🙋🏻♀️ 2020 and 2021 have felt like such a blur for so many of us, and yet suddenly the Secret Santa invitations and Michael Bublé Christmas songs know no bounds. If you haven’t gotten a head start on your shopping yet, now is the time!
Feeling a little lost this year? I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite finds for this holiday season as you fill out your shopping lists. These gifts are mostly wellness-related, but have been personally tested by yours truly.
As a disclaimer, some of these links are affiliate links, which means I may receive some small compensation for purchases made. (This actually helps keep Wellness and Wanderlust running!) All thoughts are my own.
Cocokind Skincare Products
For the friend that loves skincare and pampering sessions, Cocokind is an absolute must-have. Over the past year, I’ve been working on cleaning up my beauty routine with more sustainable, paraben-free products. It can be hard to find clean brands that also work well, but Cocokind has been a lifesaver for me. My favorite products are their turmeric tonic, which is amazing for getting rid of acne/maskne, and their coffee-scented scrubbing clay for exfoliation.

Moon Cycle Cookbook
Our bodies need different nutrients at different times of the month. The ladies from Moon Cycle Bakery have created some delicious recipes to nourish us with what we need most. Their cookbook not only features sweet treats, but also savory meals, snacks and rituals to help us navigate the four phases of our cycle. Gift the Moon Cycle Cookbook to any of the women in your life who are looking to support their hormone health and take ownership of their own self-care.
I had the joy of interviewing founder Devon Loftus and Moon Cycle’s nutritionist Jenna Radomski on Episode 49 of the podcast and it’s one of our most popular episodes yet! Be sure to tune in if you haven’t already.
CBD Bath Bombs
As readers here may know, I’m a huge fan of CBD. I also happen to love a quiet night in, so when I found out about the existence of CBD bath bombs, I just had to give them a try! Hemp Bombs is currently offering 15% off your purchase with code CBD15LIFE. Their charcoal bath bombs are a hit, but you can also try out their CBD oils, topicals, dummies and other products.
Vivoo Wellness Strips
For the friend who loves all things biohacking, why not try out a month of Vivoo wellness strips? Through Vivoo’s test strips and mobile app, you can track your hydration levels, kidney function, ketones and other health parameters from the comfort of your own home. The app then offers personalized advice to improve those numbers, while keeping in mind any dietary restrictions you may have. Use code VALERIE20 to save 20% on your first order.
Super Attractor Card Deck
This colorful card deck features inspiring spiritual messages for anyone who needs a little divine guidance. When I’m having a rough time, I love pulling a card from my deck and discovering what messages come up. If you follow along on my Instagram stories, I may have even pulled a card for you before! The cards are beautifully illustrated and the messages are often exactly what we need in the moment. (Plus, they look really nice on your coffee table!) For the spiritual friend in your life, definitely consider this deck or one of the others inspired by Gabby Bernstein’s teachings.
Begin Within Journal
Journaling can play such an important role in our mental health, but did you know it can also be used as a tool for our physical wellness, too? For those who struggle with autoimmune issues, journaling your vitals and symptoms can really help you figure out what’s working and what isn’t. These Begin Within journals are a great resource for loved ones embarking on a journey to heal from chronic illness, and right now, a portion of all proceeds will be donated to Project Lyme. Use code WELLNESS10 for 10% off your purchase. (Plus, tune into episode 18 of the podcast for an interview with founder Christina Kantzavelos!)
When have I ever said no to comfort? I’m a huge fan of my Everlasting Comfort blanket, which is incredibly soft and comes in a variety of colors. The brand also is home to a variety of ergonomic products for office life (I love their memory foam seat cushions!), diffusers, and other items to make life feel a little cozier. Save 20% off your purchase of anything on their website with code WELLNESSANDWANDERLUSTBLOG.
