We’re a couple of day’s away from the main event (Christmas) and you still have a ton of shopping to do. Does this sound familiar? I have gathered some of my favorite items that would make great last minute stocking stuffers and you can get them on amazon right now!
Last Minute Stocking Stuffers on Amazon
Amazon is the one of the best places to get supplements as far as I am concerned. Once you’ve thoroughly researched whatever item you want, it’s as easy as click, click, click. no waiting in lines, no driving to the natural grocer across town, no disappointment when you realize they don’t carry the item.
These are a few of the items that I love and would love to see in my stocking, if we had stockings. If you have a healthy loved one, they will too!
COLLAGEN HYDROLYSATE. This stuff is amazing! Great for your skin, nails, joints. We should be getting collagen from eating organ meats, tendons, ligaments and such but since we only eat muscle meats, we are seriously missing out. My #1 favorite place to get collagen is from bone broth. My #2 favorite way it through this collagen hydrolysate. I mix a spoonful into my coffee, tea or smoothie – easy peasy. Get it HERE.
If you need a little mental and physical boost, you should give MCT OIL a chance. This one is specifically Bulletproof Brain Octane, which is a fancy label on some really high quality MCT oil. I have tried the regular stuff and can vouch for this specific version – it’s better. Blend it into your coffee, tea or smoothie. Your body quickly absorbs the oil and puts it to work. You will feel the difference almost immediately. Especially if your fat consumption is lacking. Feed that brain fats! Get a little bottle of Bulletproof Brain Octane HERE.
Need some help simmering down at the end of the day? You need some Natural Calm in your life. Skip the sleeping pills and please, please, please, step away from the NyQuil. If you are drowning yourself in NyQuil to go to sleep, I am totally judging you right now. This is me, smacking your hand, telling you to STOP. …but this is for gifts, haha. So, get some of these little Natural Calm packs for your loved one, or for yourself HERE.
Liver is good for you, that’s not up for debate. I do know that most of us are not eating enough of it. Which is why these Liver Pills are an excellent supplement. Get your iron, B12 and Vitamin A from this natural source of Desiccated Liver. This company uses grass fed beef livers to make their product, this is important. Get your fave healthy nut a bottle of desiccated liver pills HERE.
Time is a ticking and Amazon’s cutoff for 2 day shipping is fast approaching so I am going to be brief about the following three items I recommend below. All of these items have a few things in common – they are FAIR TRADE and ORGANIC. Both very important items in my book and I hope they are important to you too. A product that is fair trade certified is produced with respect to the people and the planet. You can be sure the farmers were compensated fairly for their crops, in turn the farmers are able to provide their workers and their families with safe and healthy working conditions. This helps build thriving business that empower communities. By choosing to purchase a fair trade item (like my fave ones listed below), you are helping improve a communities day to day life! Isn’t that something? The gift that keeps on giving!
These are two of my favorite books!
My girl Caitlin of Grass Fed Girl co-wrote Mediterranean Paleo Cooking with her hubby Nabil and it’s awesome. 150+ recipes, it’s basically like having a nutritionist and a professional chef in the kitchen with you while you cook. Get yourself a copy HERE.
Sophia Amoruso of Nasty Gal wrote GIRLBOSS and I kind of love her for it. She is the ultimate #girlboss, starting her online vintage business from scratch and building it to the empire it is today. She’s also from the bay area and since I’ve been living in San Francisco for 6 years now, I am from here to. Get your copy of GIRLBOSSHERE and get ready for some serious female empowerment.
Swell Stainless Steele Bottle Water . I’ve been told that the largest Swell bottle will hold an entire bottle of wine. This would be perfect for your health conscious water drinker that also likes to indulge in a little wine from time to time.
Organic Wool Socks . Getting socks as an adult is awesome. Something about getting new underwear or socks that just makes me feel all cozy inside. When they are made of all natural materials that are free of toxins – even better!
Tea Infuser . This tea infuser is so fancy! …and inexpensive *wink wink*. This would make a great gift with some loose tea samplings. You could totally pick some up at your natural grocer and combine it with this infuser. This just may be the most well thought out gift you’ve ever given your healthy loved one. Think about it.
Stainless Steel Straws. These are just fun and plastic straws are so wasteful! Did you know that plastic NEVER decomposes? Like all of the plastic ever created is still on this planet…just sitting in some landfill or suffocating some poor turtle in the ocean. Yes, I went there. Stop buying so much plastic, get some stainless steel straws in your life. You can even use the plastic destroying the planet info I just shared with you to really make this a special gift.
Dry Brush . Dry brushing is good for everyone! It’s a great way to get your lymphatic system flowing properly, a nice way to get rid of dead skin cells and make way for pretty and smooth new ones. It basically feels like a 3 minute spa date before your shower. Bonus points if you get this for your wife and you keep the kids entertained for an hour while she dry brushes, showers and does her hair and makeup – or whatever routine she wants.
Berkey Shower Filter. We have this on our shower and love it. Straight from the Berkley website: “The Berkey shower water filter contains a patented high purity blend of zinc, calcium and copper which are most effective in reducing free chlorine , dirt and odors.”. Chlorine steam is horrible for you. There is ongoing research showing a correlation between chlorine/bleach and asthma in children – it messes up your lungs! Get yourself a filter HERE. You will see and smell the difference almost immediately.
