The Holiday AEDIT: 14 Health & Wellness Gifts For All
Much like this year, this holiday season is unlike any other. Shopping for somebody that is already hard to buy for feels more complicated than ever. Well, we’ve done the homework for you and have curated a list of finds that will let your loved one know they’ve made the ‘nice’ list.
Have a significant other that’s always complaining about ‘tech neck’ after hunching over the computer screen all day? A handheld electric massager will become their new best friend (if you don’t snatch it for yourself first). Or perhaps your BFF is going vegan and needs some help finding quality hygiene products to integrate into their life? There’s a heavenly scented deodorant that’s bound to please.
The AEDITION is rounding up the top health and wellness gifts to get for anyone and everyone in your life (or maybe even you, yourself) who deserves a little TLC.
Addsfit Deep Tissue Massage Gun
While handheld massagers were originally touted as tools for athletes, the reality is everybody can benefit from them. We’ve discussed the healing power of massages before, and when going to a spa is not an option, these pulsating devices are the next best thing. With five different massage heads, nine adjustable speed levels, a quiet system, and six hours of battery time per charge, this deep tissue gun is the portable personal masseuse that doesn’t require a reservation. $199, addsfit.com
Taos Aer Ginger Grapefruit Deodorant
We know, giving deodorant as a gift can come across as … symbolic. But, for your natural-loving or vegan friend, a new deodorant that smells and works amazingly will be a godsend. Taos AER’s products were created as an aluminum-free alternative for those looking to steer clear of traditional antiperspirants and deodorants without sacrificing functionality. Formulated with baking soda, essential oils, and compressed in a way that reduces waste, these natural deodorants come in a variety of luxe and crowdpleasing scents. $19, taosaer.com
Vitruvi Move Diffuser
Looking to impress your BFF who has impeccable taste in interior design and knows all the ‘it’ scents before anybody else? This cordless matte diffuser is a stylish addition that can fit into any home while offering a relaxing ambiance they can move from one room to another. Running for a consistent four hours or eight if it's on the intermittent setting, the chic diffuser is a designer dream and aromatherapy device all in one. $179, vitruvi.com
Plant People Immunity Kit
With health on the brain in 2020, no gift guide is complete without an immune booster. This gift set, which comes in a reusable pouch, offers a curated selection of the brand’s bestselling supplements and drops that utilize the power of plants. The Drops+ Relief CBD+CBG include nutritional powerhouses like turmeric and ginger, and the droplet makes taking your vitamins easier than ever. $99, plantpeople.co
Bathing Culture Plastic-Free Bather Set
You’re never too old for bubbles, and Bathing Culture is taking bathtime to the next level. There’s an all-purpose soap in a reusable bottle, a face and body oil (especially great if your friend loves using a gua sha or body plane), a luffa, and a mineral bath blend housed in eco-friendly packaging. It’s a gift that’s good for your loved one and the planet. $99, bathingculture.com
Emerage Aerify Kit
The gift of good skin is something nobody will say ‘no’ to! Created by West Hollywood-based dermatologist Jason Emer, MD, the Aerify Kit is a medical-grade at-home peel protocol to treat dark spots, acne scars, sun damage, and more packaged alongside a two-week supply of five Emerage Skin products. Use it on the face and body to enter the New Year looking refreshed. $250, emeragecosmetics.com
Romer The Complete Regimen
Skincare doesn’t have to be complicated. For those who need a little guidance on where to start, this Romer set can pave the way. The trio of cruelty-free and sustainably made products has a gel-oil cleanser that helps soothe with calendula and aloe, a hydrating moisturizer that uses rosemary oil and hyaluronic acid, and a treatment mask made with bakuchiol, niacinamide, and prickly pear seed oil that will leave the skin glowing. $150, romer.com
What do you get the person who isn’t going to be able to make it home for the holidays this year? Homesick candles offer a little getaway sans suitcase. Choose from any of the 50 states, a favorite city (international ones, too), or a fun experience (who remembers road trips?). A fun add-on: the candles can be personalized with a little message on the back for an extra special touch. $34, homesick.com
Odele Hair Care Set
Quality hair care doesn’t need to break the bank. The hair type-specific trios of shampoo, conditioner, and styler are cruelty-free, safe for treated hair, and meant to be shared. A great gift for your favorite couple, family, or, hey, even yourself! $30, odelebeauty.com
MaskNSip Black Drink Mask
A year ago, who knew that masks would be the most sought-after accessory of 2020? Well, this one will help keep them safe and hydrated because ‘mask mouth’ is no joke. Designed by a dentist and fashion stylist with a breathable modal fabric, this face covering provides protection while making a straw accessible through a velcro flap. Happy sipping! $24, masknsip.com
Warby Parker Landon Glasses
We might not notice it, but the blue light from our electronic devices is actually putting quite a bit of strain on the eyes and skin. Since Zoom fatigue is real and Netflix binges are our go-to socially distant weekend activity, a pair of blue light glasses is a must. Warby Parker’s come in an array of timeless styles (with or without a prescription). $95, warbyparker.com
Dr. Dennis Gross SpectraLite FaceWare Pro
Bring your aesthetician home with this light therapy device that will revive the complexion. The non-invasive, FDA-approved mask has 162 LED lights (both blue and red) to fight acne-causing bacteria and boost collagen production, so this tool is good for all ages and skincare routines. $435, dermstore.com
Melach 33 Luxe CBD Body Butter
This body butter is made with 1,000 milligrams of full spectrum CBD and silky shea butter that leaves the skin smooth and your muscles relaxed – a win-win if you ask us! Along with the powerful benefits of dead sea minerals and antioxidant-rich plant oils, the luxe cream melts into the skin for a soothing experience. $74, melach33.com
Comrad Compression Socks
Socks for Christmas? Hear us out. Compression socks are not your grandma’s go-to holiday gift. They’re an elevated version that will help fitness fanatics, those with varicose veins and edema, and even pregnant women. Compressing the foot and lower leg boosts circulation and reduces swelling, but this design makes it comfortable. $29, comrad.com
