The Every Day Gift-Giving Guide!

by Shelli Stein

It occurred to me that there are holidays all year long, so why not put together a holiday gift guide that’s great for whatever holiday you’re celebrating? Heck, even if there is no holiday in mind, this guide includes choices that you can even gift yourself any time of the year. This holiday gift guide features gear you can give to others, or request from others. It features six categories: health, fitness, travel, nutrition, adventure.

The rules for the gift guide:

  • Each item’s description must be no more than 75 words.
  • Each gift guide item must be something I’ve used or had recommended to me by someone I trust. No filler, all awesome stuff.
  • Items under $100 are highlighted with an asterisk.
  • The Get it text at the bottom of each item’s description links out to the product.

Happy holidays all year long. Let’s roll ………..

FitBit Inspire 3*

Activity trackers are best for tracking general activity rather than workouts. This tracker captures useful metrics like steps and heart rate and has a long-lasting battery life, so you’ll actually remember to wear it. Its price makes it a winner.

Keeping your feet healthy is essential. Give your feet a vacation and try these. I’ve had mine for many years and use them all the time. If you’ve never used them, your feet are missing out and will reward you with many many happy miles!

Mack’s Slim Fit Soft Foam Earplugs*

Humans have increased the world’s loudness fourfold. More than 100 million Americans live in noise levels louder than what you’d hear standing next to a working washing machine or dishwasher. That’s 70 decibels. All this noise, research shows, steals our focus and productivity and even hurts our health. I use these earplugs while working and traveling.

Price: $13 for 50 pairs

Omron Pedometer*

For anyone who wants to keep tracking daily steps simple and easy, this is the best pedometer and the one I’ve been using for years. The battery lasts a long time and I just stick it in my pocket and I’m good to go. It also comes with a strap so you can attach it to your pocket and you won’t lose it 🙂

The Oxygen Advantage by Patrick McKeown*

What McKeown has to say about breathing will revolutionize your health and fitness. Breathing properly is the secret to your health, fitness and overall well-being. What you’ll learn is super easy to implement, which is one of the reasons I often recommend this book. There are also many other books I recommend to level up your health and fitness.

Foam Rollers*

Foam rollers are a wonderful tool for exercise, massage, muscle recovery, and pain relief. Maybe you’ve seen them in physical therapy offices. Having one at home, though, and using it regularly makes a world of difference.

Accumulating miles and points for travel is the easy part. The much more complicated part is actually using them for flights. There’s quite a steep learning curve. You might not know that there are actually travel award booking services that can book award flights for you. If you find it difficult to book award flights, I highly recommend I’ve been using them for years. They get me the best deals possible and save me money and time.

Price: Varies according to services used

Never again worry about whether your privacy is protected when you’re on the internet. To travel and not use a VPN seems too risky to me. And no matter whether you’re in a public space close to home or across the world, using a VPN just makes good sense. ExpressVPN is the one I’ve been using for years and always recommend.

Price: $99 a year. Special deals can be found with the link below.

Packing Cubes*

I’m a big fan of using packing cubes. I never like searching for what I pack, so these keep me organized. Been using these for years and love how light they are. They come in various sizes. They are also super durable, which is always a good feature.

Price: $40

Instant Pot*

As someone who cooks 90% of her meals at home, how can I not recommend this pot? The Instant Pot is an electric pressure cooker that also turns into a slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, skillet, and more. And you’ll love that you can “set-and-forget” it. It also uses up to 70% less energy!

Bioedge Sciences*

What can you give to the person who has everything? Or maybe you’d like this gift for yourself. Why Bioedge? Their supplements have all natural ingredients, no artificial colors, no artificial flavors, no artificial sweeteners, NO SUGAR, no toxins or chemicals. Their motto is “All Natural Never Tasted So Good” and I agree! The quality of Bioedge Sciences products are second to none. I hope you benefit from their high quality supplements as much as I do.

Frooze Balls*

You ever get hangry? Everyone does at some point, right? Here’s the solution; always carry something healthy and easy to eat when you’re on the go and need a snack. I’ve settled on these because they taste great, come in various flavors, and are the perfect healthy snack. I’m partial to the PB&J ones!

Travel By Katie

Whatever travel adventure means to you, sometimes we need help when putting together our adventures. I never would have been able to go on a safari without the planning help of a travel advisor. The same is true for my travels all through New Zealand. Sometimes we have special occasions or want to live it up and take advantage of the travel benefits that only a travel advisor can provide for us. Do you want the discounts, welcome gifts, room upgrades, and hotel credits a travel agent can arrange for you? Here’s the travel advisor I use to get the best deals, lowest prices, and personalized service.

Price: Depends on services provided.

Travel More For Less

The term travel hacking has become synonymous with traveling more for less. But what does that term really mean? One way to think about it is learning to travel the world by leveraging your frequent flyer miles, hotel points, and credit card rewards. This is easy when you know how! Some of the most frequently asked questions I receive are:

  • How do I get started on earning points and miles?
  • Which credit card should I sign up for?
  • What is the best credit card for earning miles and points?
  • What is the best airline to fly with?
  • What is the best points program?

If you’re not travel hacking yet, or want to level up your opportunities, learn more here.

Price: Free to learn!

We all need to be proactive about hydration and replenishing what we lose when we sweat. Adding electrolytes to water keeps you in “hydration bliss”. Let’s face it, we all function better when properly hydrated! There are many electrolyte products to choose from, but the one I’ve been using for years and still use is NUUN. I like the taste, the price point, and definitely feel the difference when I don’t mix NUUN with my water. I take NUUN when I’m home and never travel without it.

Price: $36 for a pack of 6 canisters
