The Health Junkee Holiday Gift Guide 2017

It’s that time of the year again! When we spend all our money on the most thoughtful presents for all of our loved ones. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve been more and more into giving gifts than receiving them. I love it when I find that perfect present for someone and get super excited to give it to them! All of the ideas in this list I either have and love, or would love to have them myself *wink* *wink*

Even though I  don’t celebrate christmas and unfortunately don’t get 8 different presents for Hanukkah anymore (those were the days!) I thought I would still write up a holiday gift guide to help give you some inspiration!

All of these presents are health and wellness – focused, but split up into a few different categories. I hope you enjoy and that this inspires you in your holiday shopping!
