The holidays are right around the corner. And you’re probably mulling over what to get your loved ones and what to put on your own wish list. Well, I’ve got you covered – here are my favorite healthy gifts and ideas to help you give the gift of wellness this holiday season.
The Perfect Anti-Aging and Beauty Gifts
Do you have a beauty-conscious loved one on your gift-giving list this year? Then treat them with the gift of an anti-aging secret weapon that helps them enhance their own natural beauty and boosts their confidence.
Here are some of the most effective natural anti-aging and beauty gifts that the beauty guru on your list is sure to love.
Radical Beauty: The Power of NAD
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide – also known as NAD+ – is a powerful coenzyme present in all of your cells. This little miracle molecule has been garnering attention thanks to its impressive anti-aging benefits. You see, when applied directly to your skin, NAD+ packs a powerful punch by:1,2,3
- Boosting keratin and collagen production – two powerful compounds that are critical for healthy skin
- Fighting inflammation and preventing oxidative damage
- Enhancing the production of cellular energy
- Promoting cellular longevity
- Preserving genomic stability
In the newest addition to my skincare line, I’ve combined the power of NAD+ with epidermal growth factor, bio-identical polypeptides, and a blend of potent antioxidants to give your skin the nutrients it needs to combat aging. The research-backed combination of ingredients in my brand new Intensive Day Serum and Intensive Night Cream are perfectly calibrated to help you age gracefully and maintain a radiant, youthful glow.
Dr. Jill’s Personal Favorites
Your skin is the largest organ of your body – so the skincare products you use on a daily basis matter more than you may think. If you’re using skincare, beauty, and make-up products riddled with questionable and toxic ingredients, they can be absorbed through your skin and wreak havoc on your overall health and wellbeing. Fortunately, you don’t have to choose between beauty and health.
All Dr. Jill products are formulated with both health and beauty in mind – using only the purest and highest quality ingredients. Give the gift of naturally flawless skin, minus the toxic ingredients, with Dr. Jill’s rejuvenating skin products. For a simple anti-aging beauty routine, you can’t go wrong with this trio:
Dr. Jill Vita CE Serum: This highly potent and clinically proven formula delivers unparalleled results to reverse signs of aging. This serum produces an 8-fold increase in collagen, provides maximal antioxidant protection, corrects hyperpigmentation, and significantly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Dr. Jill HA Collagen Booster: Our proprietary trans-epidermal carrier peptide complex paired with several different forms of hyaluronic acid gives this serum unmatched hydrating abilities. This boosts your skin’s barrier function – providing deep penetrating hydration that lasts up to 5 days after initial application. This unique formula’s ability to boost collagen and enhance your skin’s natural hydration helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also combats the damaging effects of UV rays and pollution, leaving your skin rejuvenated and glowing.
Dr. Jill Biopeptide Beauty Cream: This unique and revitalizing cream is formulated with human growth factors, a peptide complex, antioxidants, and other skin-restorative ingredients. This combination of powerful ingredients replenishes your skin’s fatty acids and stimulates collagen production while reversing damage done from oxidative stress. This daily beauty cream will leave your skin soft and smooth, and help restore a youthful appearance.
Dr. Jill beauty products are the perfect clean-beauty gift for those hard-to-buy-for beauty lovers on your list.
Longer Lashes and Thicker Hair
There’s no denying that long, luscious lashes and locks are two beauty trends that never go out of style. And fortunately longer and thicker eyelashes and hair don’t require expensive and frequent trips to the beauty salon. All you need are these simple additions to your beauty routine:
Dr. Jill Advanced Eyelash Growth Serum: This clinically proven serum utilizes a unique peptide complex that’s rich in Biochanin A to promote the growth of natural lashes. This results in thicker, fuller, and more luscious lashes with visible growth in just 2 weeks of regular use.
Dr. Jill Hair Growth System: This specialized hair regrowth system consists of 3 components: the Replenish Shampoo, the Restorative Conditioner, and the Rapid Growth Serum. This potent trio works together to reduce inflammation, boost scalp health, and promote thicker, stronger hair follicles. Visible results can be seen in as soon as 30 days with regular use.
With these potent formulas, it’s easy to give the gift of beautiful lashes and hair.
The Best Healthy Food and Drink Gifts
The food and drinks you consume are quite literally the building blocks that make up every cell of your body. So it’s no surprise that the quality of the food and beverages you consume plays a pivotal role in your health. And fortunately “healthy” doesn’t have to be bland and boring. Here are some of the best health-boosting food and drink gifts that your health-conscious recipients will love.
Olive oil is chock-full of nutrients like fatty acids, antioxidants, and polyphenols that pack a powerful punch when it comes to your health. Just a handful of health benefits that have been linked to the regular consumption of olive oil include:4
- Reduced inflammation
- Improved heart health
- Lower risk of cancer
- Protection against neurodegeneration
If you’re looking for a healthy gift for your favorite cook, you can’t go wrong with Olivie’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Olivie’s olive oil is scientifically proven to contain drastically higher health-boosting polyphenol and antioxidant levels than store-bought brands of olive oil. In fact, their Olivie Plus 30X olive oil contains a remarkable 30 times more antioxidants than regular extra virgin olive oil!
To make it even more convenient to reap the benefits of Olivie’s nutrient-dense olive oil, you can also try their easy-to-take Olivie Force/Rich capsules. Simply popping a couple of these capsules each day can skyrocket your antioxidant levels and give you the same protection and health benefits as consuming this potent olive oil.
This olive oil’s smooth and buttery taste profile paired with its robust health-promoting benefits makes this the perfect gift for the foodie in your life. Grab a bottle or two of this top-notch olive oil by visiting my online store right here! And don’t forget you can get 10% off your order by clicking right here.
As the saying goes, “you are what you eat.” But you’re also whatever you’re eating, eats. Meaning when it comes to the animals and animal products you consume, quality matters – a lot. One of the healthiest (and most ethical) choices you can make, is to opt for meat and animal products that come from animals that were:
- Raised and/or caught ethically
- Fed a healthy diet they are designed to thrive on
- Never given unnecessary hormones or antibiotics
That’s why I love Butcher Box and Vital Choice. Butcher Box specializes in 100% grass-fed, grass-finished beef; free-range organic chicken; heritage-breed pork; and wild-caught Alaskan salmon. And Vital Choice specializes in sustainably caught, top-notch quality seafood.
Both of these companies perfectly portion and package their top-of-the-line animal products and deliver them directly to your front door. You can trust that these companies produce animal products raised and sourced in the most ethical way possible, so they’re good for you and good for the environment.
AquaTru’s water purification system uses a patented 4-step ultra reverse osmosis technology that’s certified to remove over 83 contaminants and toxins, including harmful compounds like:
- And many more
AquaTru’s unique system transforms your tap water into delicious tasting, pure, clean water without the hassle. There’s no complex installation or plumbing – simply set up your purification system in a discreet spot on your countertop and voila, you’ve got top-notch purified water at your fingertips.
Water is life-sustaining. But unfortunately, if you’re drinking your water straight out of the sink, you might be getting more than you bargained for. You see, thanks to miles of pipeline, runoff from agriculture and industrial plants, and modern water treatment practices, most tap water (and even some bottled water) is chock-full of potentially harmful chemicals.
And if you’re drinking this contaminated water day after day, those pollutants can accumulate in your body, add to your toxic burden, and wreak havoc on your health. This is why having a high-quality water filter like the Berkey Water Filters is essential.
Berkey Water Filters have a unique and complex purification process that utilizes micro-filtration and ionic absorption. Together these methods eliminate even the most minuscule of contaminants and produce drinking water of unmatched quality. Give the gift of clean, pure, contaminant-free drinking water with a Berkey Water Filter – click here to learn more.
If gifting an entire water filtration system isn’t quite in your budget, you can still give the gift of pristine, pollutant-free drinking water.
Clearly Filtered has developed cutting-edge advanced filtration technology that doesn’t require any fancy equipment. Clearly Filtered’s Pitcher and Self Filtering Water Bottles target and eliminate impurities at a microscopic scale – leaving behind safe and clean drinking water.
If you want to treat yourself and/or your loved ones to delicious, safe, and clean drinking water, you can check out Clearly Filtered’s full line of products by clicking here.
Most of us can appreciate a good “cup of joe” to get us going in the morning. Thanks to a tasty dose of caffeine and a laundry list of well-documented health benefits, coffee has become a staple in our culture. But unfortunately, all the health benefits of coffee can also come with a dark side.
Thanks to modern growing and shipping practices, low-quality coffee is often contaminated with chemicals and pesticides and can harbor mold growth – which can negate any of the health benefits associated with drinking coffee in the first place. That’s why I love Purity Coffee – their coffee is:
- Sourced from defect-free specialty grade beans
- Organic and free from pesticides and other toxic chemicals
- Tested to ensure each batch is free from mold and mycotoxins
- Roasted to perfection to provide maximum health benefits
- Guaranteed to contain up to 2 times the antioxidants of other leading brands
So if you’re looking for the perfect gift for the coffee connoisseur in your life, you can’t go wrong with a gift from Purity Coffee – click here to see their full line of products.
Gift the Healing Power of Infrared and PEMF
Infrared rays are bands of electromagnetic energy that penetrate deep into your body – warming your core temperature and dilating your blood vessels. This transfer of energy from infrared rays into your body has been associated with some impressive health-boosting benefits such as:5
- Increasing calorie burning and weight loss
- Enhancing detoxification
- Easing aches and pains
- Fighting inflammation
- Promoting relaxation
- Combating oxidative damage which can help prevent chronic disease
Harnessing the power of infrared rays is one of the most healing and health-boosting technologies available on the market today. If you’re looking to give the gift of healing to someone you love, these products make the perfect gifts.
Higher Dose’s Infrared Sauna Blanket is incredibly simple and effective. All you have to do is plug in the blanket and climb inside. Each session in a Higher Dose Sauna Blanket is designed to leave you feeling incredibly uplifted and rejuvenated – feelings we could all use a little more of, especially after the busy holiday season.
To truly tap into the healing powers of infrared rays, you must use them on a consistent basis. This makes Higher Dose’s Sauna Blanket a simple yet powerful tool that brings the healing powers of infrared rays into your home so you can use it as often as you’d like. Click here to learn more about Higher Dose’s Sauna Blanket and decide if it’s the right gift for your loved ones (or to add to your own wish list)!
PEMF stands for pulsed electromagnetic field. A PEMF is an invisible field of energy that’s “pulsed” into your body in bursts. This low-level of electromagnetic energy essentially “supercharges” your cells, allowing them to function at full capacity. This boost in cellular energy means every cell in your body is functioning more efficiently, so it’s no surprise that PEMF’s health benefits extend from head to toe.
Higher Dose’s PEMF Mat is unique because it combines the power of PEMF therapy with infrared heat, negative ion therapy, and crystal therapy. This powerful combination of healing energies brings the healing benefits of nature right into your home.
To learn more about PEMF therapy and Higher Dose’s PEMF Mat, head over and check out my article How to Supercharge Your Health With PEMF Therapy. Or click here to visit their website and get your hands on a Higher Dose PEMF Mat today.

The Best Gifts for Better Health
The beautiful thing about health is there are countless ways you can improve it. And all the little things you incorporate – or remove – add up in a big way. These are some of my favorite health-promoting products that will give you the most bang for your buck when it comes to giving the gift of better health.
Indoor air can be notoriously polluted. With limited air circulation and accumulation of dust, pet dander, volatile organic compounds, and toxic cleaning products – indoor air can be up to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air.8 Which is why an air filter is a necessity.
Austin Air is the perfect prescription for healthy indoor air. These purification systems offer top-of-the-line purifying technology that not only removes nearly 100% of any airborne particles – but also eliminates the vast majority of toxic and volatile chemicals and gasses. In fact, Austin Air is the only clinically proven medical grade air purifier available on the market.
Ready to give the gift of fresh, clean, pollutant-free air? To snag an Austin Air indoor air purification system in time for the holidays and get 10% off your order, call our office at 303-993-7910 and ask about our Austin Air discount!
We spend about one-third of our lives sleeping. And many conventional mattresses are chock-full of toxic chemicals that you can absorb and inhale – wreaking havoc on your health. You see, many synthetic foams and fabrics found in regular mattresses contain things like petrochemicals, adhesives, flame retardants, VOCs, and a cocktail of other questionable compounds.
But Naturepedic is on a mission to transform the sleep and health of their customers through their specialized line of certified organic mattresses. These mattresses eliminate harmful chemicals in favor of healthier, more natural alternatives. Naturepedic uses only organic, natural, and renewable materials to create the most luxurious and comfortable mattresses with unmatched quality that’s designed to last.

Just about everyone could get on board with a shortcut to attaining:
- Speedier fat loss

While there’s no magic pill or quick-fix that can create these results, the Power Plate can speed up and amplify all of these health (and appearance) boosting effects. The Power Plate’s vibrating platform vibrates 35 times per second – triggering your body to stabilize itself and in turn recruits up to 95% of your muscle fibers. That’s close to double the amount of muscle fibers typically recruited in a strenuous workout!
Those impressive stats make the Power Plate the perfect gift for the fitness enthusiast or biohacker on your list. Click here to learn more about the Power Plate and get your hands on one (or a couple) of these workout-maximizing platforms. You can even use the code drjill to get 20% off your order!

Bio-Electric Shield is another company that has developed top-of-the-line products to deflect and neutralize the impact of EMF radiation. What makes their products unique is how they use the power of crystals to deflect the unhealthy energies from other people and places. These crystals also work to strengthen and amplify your own energy – making you more resilient to the impacts of EMFs and negative energies.
These products make a great gift for anyone – from techies to spiritual enthusiasts. They even have special EMF shielding pendants for dogs and cats for the pet-lovers on your gift list! Click here to browse Bio-Electric Shields line of products.
EMFs, or electromagnetic fields, are a type of low-level radiation that’s emitted from technology like cell phones, Wi-Fi, and power lines. Over time, frequent exposure to these EMFs can cause an increase in free radicals, which can lead to oxidative stress that eventually impedes cellular function. To learn more about exactly how EMFs can be harmful, check out my article The Dark Side of Technology: How To Protect Yourself From EMFs.
And while it’s impossible to avoid exposure to EMFs, fortunately, there’s a way to avoid their damaging effects. Aires Tech has developed cutting-edge technology designed to absorb and restructure harmful EMFs – and transform them into more biologically compatible forms of radiation. This restructuring reduces the conflict between the external radiation from electronic devices and the natural radiation put out by your cells.
Aires Tech’s sleek and effective devices are the perfect gift for anyone in your life who spends a lot of time glued to their computer or cell phone. Or for a loved one who works from home. Click here to purchase one of their EMF shielding devices today.
Sometimes buying gifts for others can be downright tricky. Maybe you just can’t seem to decide on the perfect gift. Maybe you’re shopping for someone that seems to have everything they need or they’re just plain picky. Or perhaps you simply don’t quite know them well enough to buy something personal.
Sometimes, when you’re confronted with a sticky gift-giving situation, a gift card is the best way to go! Give the gift of health and well-being – and let your recipient pick out their own present – by picking up a Dr. Jill retail gift card. (hyperlink this to the gift card product on our store) These gift cards are good for anything available through my online store, which you can browse by clicking right here.
