The holiday spirit of giving is wonderful, until you find yourself completely stumped on what to get. We know the feeling, which is why this year, for the first time ever, Sonima has handpicked 20 items to ease the stress of gifting this season. These wellness-inspired presents will cover just about everyone on your list at every price point, leaving your loved ones feeling happier, healthier and extremely grateful.

1. Outdoor Voices Women’s TechSweat 7/8 Zoom Leggings, $95

These high-performance TechSweat leggings will keep your body cool even at your sweatiest moments. Their flattering, high-waistband and two-tone color block design will elongate your legs, too. Made for all kinds of movement, these leggings will inspire anyone to get back into a workout routine, just in time for the New Year. We suggest pairing these pants with a subscription to Elev8d Fitness, a new at-home, low-intensity workout program that focus on form, quality of movement, and sessions as short as 8 minutes a day.

2. Outdoor Voices Men’s Sweatee T-Shirt, $35

Just like the women’s leggings, this men’s tee is made for sweating. It’s also great for plain comfort. The moisture-wicking material dries four times faster than cotton and the soft thin layer feels pajama like. It’s a high-tech piece of clothing without compromising feel.

3. C & Moon Malibu Made Body Scrub, $64

Environmentally conscious actress Carson Meyer started C & Moon after becoming a doula, when she learned about the many harmful chemicals in everyday skincare products. She made this nourishing body scrub from all natural ingredients that she found in her own kitchen! It’s free of parabans, phthalates, GMOs, gluten, dyes, heavy metals, phenoxyethanols, SLS, SLES and synthetic fragrances—all chemicals that can be hazardous to your health and are, unfortunately, very common. This luxurious scrub removes dead skin cells and replenishes it with hydrating oils leaving it softer than a baby’s bottom.

4. Lakanto Sugar Free 55% Chocolate Bars, $68.25 for a box of eight

This is the perfect box of chocolate bars for the health junkie with a sometimes-sweet-tooth. Lakanto chocolate bars are flavored with a special gourmet Monkfruit sweetener and are keto-friendly, vegan, gluten-free and paleo. Tastes so decadent and delicious, even a nibble will suffice as your daily dessert.

5. Vitruvi Stone Diffuser, $119

Aside from this product being a wellness lover’s dream gift, it is simply a beautiful piece of décor for any living space. Essential oils have many benefits and this handcrafted Ultrasonic diffuser is a quiet and lovely way to add mood-enhancing aromatherapy and slight humidity that will turn any house into a home.

6. 8Greens Effervescent Tablet, $42 for three tubes (30 tablets)

Life gets extra busy during the holidays, making it easy for healthy eating to fall to the wayside. This is the perfect gift for the hectic health-nut who’s always on the go. The 8Greens tablet contains spinach, wheatgrass, kale, spirulina, aloe vera, blue green algae, chlorella and barley grass. It’s a concentrated source of nutrition and key source for antioxidants that many people swear by. Just throw it in a glass of water and drink up—you’ll feel energized and healthier in no time!

7. Sara Happ Lip Slip Balm, $24

Of all the products on this list, the Sara Happ Lip Slip Balm is one of the most essential leading into the colder months. It’s a balm that not only coats the lips with shine and moisture, but also it deeply hydrates and repairs the skin, bringing them back to life. We assure you, this product will save and restore your lips on the chilliest days come winter.

8. Jennifer Meyer Good Luck Necklace, $3,950.00

This handmade, timeless cross-cultural pendant will bring good luck to anyone that wears it. The two pave diamonds add a delicate, yet understated elegance. These symbols represent health, longevity and good fortune, and when put together they stand for love, unity and peace.

9. Life Extension Rich Rewards Coffee, $33.49

Not all coffee is created equal. In fact, many antioxidants are taken out of the coffee beans in the traditional roasting process. This brand uses a special process to preserve all of the beneficial antioxidants coffee has to offer. It is 100 percent USDA-certified and handpicked in the rainforests of Latin America.

10. Eve Lom Rescue Mask, $85

This rescue mask is known to work wonders on your skin. It’s made for correcting blotchiness and irritation through a grounded almond exfoliator and a smooth honey conditioner. It has cooling components that help decongest the skin by reducing puffiness and creating an even complexion.

11. Lessons: My Path To A Meaningful Life By Gisele Bündchen, $19.56

Supermodel Gisele Bündchen shares profound, reflective insight of her life’s work in her new memoir that’s already a New York Times best-seller. Many people don’t realize her humble roots as she came from a small town in Brazil and went on to conquer the world of international modeling. Here, she shares stories of the importance of vulnerability and the tools she has learned that keep her grounded through life’s many surprises.

12. Revenir Face System With Vitamin C Solution, $554

The Revenir Face System is a portable, handheld device that delivers a Vitamin C electrolyzed mist to repair damaged skin cells. It claims to revive the deepest levels of free radicals and increases both collagen and elastin production. Many spas across the country use this holistic technology to reduce fine lines, eliminate sun exposure, discoloration and age spots. This device is an investment piece that will give you high tech, at-home spa treatments.

13. Juice Beauty SPF 30 Mineral Tinted Moisturizer, $32

In the world of clean and cruelty-free beauty, this BB cream moisturizer is among the highest rated. For starters, it’s a reef-safe sunscreen with ample protection, hydrating plant-derived compounds and a glowing finish. It’s a four-in-one, sustainable gift for under $50—the perfect stocking stuffer!

14. NapForm Eye Mask with BioSense Memory Foam, $37.95

This is a wonderful gift for the jet-setter in your family who needs help winding down in unconventional places. This eye mask is made with BioSense memory foam that includes natural green tea, seed oil and charcoal. It offers soothing relief even amid chaos. It’s not just for catching some zzz’s. It’s great for meditation and finding your inner silence, too.

15. Karma Organics Spa Soybean Oil and Lavender Nail Polish Remover, $12

One of the most common complaints about nail polish remover is the strong, chemical scent of alcohol and acetone. This all-natural, chemical-free nail polish remover comes in several different subtle scents that almost feel therapeutic. It also nourishes and rebuilds the nail-beds instead of breaking them down and drying them out.

16. Makana Lilikoi Guava Scented Candle, $12

The scent of paradise doesn’t have to cost a fortune. This under-$15 gift looks and smells luxurious. It’s a soy wax, lead-free candle that is blended with essential oils. You can feel good about breathing in this tropical, calming scent. All of the ingredients are mindfully made in a vegan and cruelty-free environment.

17. Iris Hantverk Maple Nob Body Brush, $30

This beautiful handmade body brush promotes skin renewal and exfoliation for a healthier inner feel and outer glow. It can be used the Ayurvedic way in a dry setting or taken into the bath. Dry brushing is known to help improve the function of the skin and eliminate toxins. It can also contribute to overall immune function through stimulating circulation.

Olas Oral Care Co. was created by dentist, surfer and clean-ocean advocate, Christopher Perez, DMD, owner of Soho Dental in NYC. His signature mouthrinse is an alcohol-free formula containing natural, marine-bio ingredients that balances and hydrates the mouth instead of stinging it. It promotes sustained oral health instead of just fresh breath. The bottle—a stylish recycled whisky glass—is a gift in itself that you’ll want to display on the bathroom shelf.

19. Young Living Stress Away Essential Oil, $40.13

This unique essential oil blend combines lime oil with vanilla extract, lavender and cedarwood. It has an inviting and memorable aroma that truly helps calm the mind and body. Young Living works under a “Seed to Seal” stamp of approval, which guarantees a conscientious product created with sourcing, science and standards in mind.

20. Banyan Botanicals Oral Health Bundle, $40.97

Ayurveda suggests that oral hygiene mirrors the rest of your body’s health and wellbeing. Take the first step in promoting a healthier new year by gifting you loved ones with the Banyan Botanicals Oral Health Bundle.
