12 Healthy Holiday Gift Ideas
The Holiday Season is usually a time of excess, but this year we’re proposing a healthier way to gift to your loved ones!
Here are our top 12 gifts for 2018 that give health and give back!
1. FOR THE PHILANTHROPIST… Vitamin Angels (Donations starting from $5)
Every year Vitamin Angels help provide lifesaving nutritional supplements to children and mothers in developing countries. Vitamin A, the most commonly deficient nutrient, is most easily replenished and costs less than 25 cents per child per year. This can help correct the most common cause of preventable blindness and death. Expand your vision of health beyond yourself this year and give to a company and charity we wholeheartedly support and donate to regularly. Find out more here.
2. FOR LOVERS OF NATURAL BEAUTY… Annmarie Skin Care (Packs starting from $10)
If you know someone that is particular about what they eat, then they most likely are particular about what they put on their skin. Annmarie Skin Care is our ALL-TIME favorite when it comes to feeding our skin so we love gifting it to loved ones. Check out our favorite gift sets here.

9. FOR THE PRO… Hurom Juicer (Starting at $299 + free shipping and Juicer Starter Kit valued at over $80)
One of the most common questions we get here at Food Matters is ‘what juicer should I buy’. My first response is always dust off and use the one you’ve got. But if that’s broken or you’re in the market for the first time then it’s time to go cold pressed! We’ve personally used many juicers over the past years and the one we LOVE to use is the Hurom. These guys are the original inventors of the upright cold pressed slow juicers and you’ll get 20-50% more from your precious fruits and veggies through this machine. Check out our favorite juicers here.
10. FOR THE BEGINNER… Discounted Online Organic Foods (Starting at $59)
If you’re helping your loved ones to start living a healthier lifestyle, you’re probably hearing things like ‘it’s so expensive’, ‘I don’t know where to shop’, ‘what brands do I choose?’... We have the perfect solution, hook them up with a membership from one of our favorite Online Organic Food Stores. Thanks to the explosion in demand for organic and natural products, Thrive Market (US) and The Wholefood Collective (AU) have been able to start discount websites with all of our favorite pantry staples at discount prices.

11. FOR THE GLUTEN-FREE… Spiralizer (Starting at $15)
Spiralizing veggies (particularly zucchini) is one of the funniest pastimes and a great way to keep kids (big and little!) entertained. It also helps you get more raw, living foods into your diet and get used to the idea of replacing gluten-laden pasta with green goodness!!! Seriously delicious and easy to prepare, so who wouldn’t want one of these in their stocking this year! Grab one here.
