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.
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 well-being. 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 regimen:
This carefully calibrated combination of copper, proline, lysine, hyaluronic acid, and niacinamide triggers and reactivates the production of collagen and elastin while simultaneously improving the skin’s barrier function.
This fusion of effects is clinically proven to deliver equivalent results to one injection of collagen filler in just two weeks of regular use.
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.
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 the damage done by oxidative stress.
This daily beauty cream will leave your skin soft and smooth, and help restore a youthful appearance.
This highly potent and research-backed duo is perfectly calibrated to help you age gracefully and maintain a radiant, youthful glow.
By combining the power of NAD+ with epidermal growth factor, bio-identical polypeptides, and a blend of potent antioxidants, the day serum delivers unparalleled results to combat and reverse signs of aging.
While topical beauty products are a critical part of your skincare ritual, they work best when paired with strategies that help you create a youthful, glowing complexion from the inside out. That’s where Higher Doses Red Light Face Mask comes in. This medical-grade silicone mask delivers red light therapy combined with far infrared heat – mimicking the low-level rejuvenating wavelengths found in natural sunlight.
The gentle, non-invasive light therapy soothes inflammation and redness, stimulates the regeneration of new, healthy skin cells, and targets uneven skin tone to leave you with glowing radiant skin. The gentle warmth and healing wavelengths are also great for relaxing and rejuvenating your mind and body – serving as an all-natural mood booster.
The Gift of 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:
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.
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. You can grab any of these best-selling beauty products by visiting my online store – you can even get 10% off your first order by clicking here!
Give the gift of gleaming, healthy skin while saving lives. Yep, you read that right, FarmHouse Fresh quite literally saves lives by taking a portion of every sale and using it to run their animal sanctuary and donating money to animal rescues all over the country.
But their products aren’t just good for the animals, they’re also great for you! All of their skincare products are locally made in the USA and crafted with 100% natural, toxin-free, just-harvested botanical ingredients that are bursting with high-quality nutrition for your skin. They’ve got soaps, lotions, serums, masks, and everything in between to keep your skin healthy and glowing all year long.
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:
- 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.
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 is a non-negotiable. 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, pure, and contaminant-free 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.
Give the Gift of Relaxation
While it can be easy to think that our health primarily revolves around our physical bodies and taking actions to care for ourselves, our well-being is a little more complicated than that. Our thoughts, feelings, relationships, and the energy we bring to our day-to-day life are crucial ingredients in the recipe for health.
And just about all of us could benefit from more relaxation, ease, and contentment in our lives. So why not give the gift of tranquility with these relaxation-boosting gifts?
The Vielight Neuro Alpha device uses a patented technology known as transcranial brain photobiomodulation (tPBM) with intranasal technology. By transmitting pulsed near-infrared (NIR) energy through your nasal passageway, these energy waves can directly penetrate your brain – stimulating and inducing specific brain waves known as alpha brain waves.
Alpha waves are correlated with the brain’s resting state. By stimulating your brain to transition into an alpha wave state it can help you slip into a state of tranquility – enhancing your mental coordination, mindfulness, and learning while helping you enter a “flow” state. This makes the Vielight Neuro Alpha device the perfect gift for the loved one on your list who’d like to sharpen their neural performance and cognitive function, uplevel their concentration, or even combat a stress-filled, busy lifestyle.
Click here to learn more about Vielights patented brain-boosting technology and to get your hands on a Neuro Alpha Device this holiday season. Be sure to use the code DrJill to get 10% off your purchase!
Infrared rays are bands of electromagnetic energy that penetrate deep into your body – warming your core temperature and dilating your blood vessels. And PEMF stands for pulsed electromagnetic field – 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.
Higher Dose has harnessed the combined power of infrared with PEMF to produce one of the most healing and health-boosting technologies available on the market today – the PEMF Go Mat. This simple-to-use, portable mat transfers energy from infrared rays and PEMF directly into your body – inducing a wide range of health-boosting benefits that extend from head to toe including:
- Promoting relaxation – helping your body and mind transition to a “rest and digest” state
- Reducing stress and helping you slip into a happier, more carefree mood
- Relaxing and soothing your muscles – promoting healing and pain relief
- Helping you drift off into a deep restorative sleep
- Increasing energy by promoting a physical and mental reset
- Enhancing detoxification while combating inflammation and oxidative damage
Give the Gift of A Happy Healthy Gut
If you’ve ever browsed through my articles or my YouTube Channel, you know there’s a lot of talk surrounding gut health. That's because a happy, healthy gut is a pivotal pillar of health. While these gifts may be more practical than fun or romantic, if you or a loved one struggles with tummy troubles, there’s no better gift than being able to banish digestive woes and have a healthy-feeling gut.
While this might be an awkward gift to give an acquaintance or boss, a coffee enema kit can be a fabulous gift for your health-conscious loved ones that aren’t shy about trying something a little less conventional. You see, coffee enemas are a lesser-known way to reap coffee’s incredible health-promoting benefits and can supercharge your body’s ability to detox.
Before you dismiss the idea of performing an enema with coffee, you have to head over and read my article Can Coffee Enemas Really Help You Detox? A Look at the Surprising Benefits. And if you’re ready to try one for yourself or gift a kit to a loved one, you can grab your kit with organic coffee right here.
Castor oil, sometimes referred to as Ricinus oil, is a fatty oil that has been linked to some pretty impressive health benefits ranging from fighting acne to relieving arthritis pain. But where this oil really shines, is when it comes to improving digestion and overall gut health. Castor oil is great for:
- Relieving constipation
- Promoting regular bowel movements
- Lowering gut inflammation
- Bolstering your gut-immune axis
By simply taking a “pack” soaked in castor oil and applying it topically to the skin, the oil can permeate through your skin and into your body where it can work its magic. And by far the easiest way to harness castor oil's gut healing and digestion-boosting power is by using the Queen of the Thrones Castor oil compress pack.
This innovative, effective, and user-friendly bundle is designed to make this transformational health practice easy for anyone to use. Click here to read more about the health benefits of castor oil packs and click here to grab one (or a few) Queen of the Thrones Castor oil compress packs.
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.
Essential oils are concentrated extracts from a variety of different plants. The fragrant molecules found in these herbal extractions can have some potent effects on your health. Just a handful of the science-backed impacts these aromatic oils can have on your well-being include:
- Boosting your immune system
- Pumping the brakes on inflammation
- Supporting healthy digestion and a thriving microbiome
- Alleviating stress and elevating your mood
- Balancing hormones
- And much more
When it comes to essential oils, they are far from created equally. That’s why I love, trust, and use Vibrant Blue Essential oils – I know I can always count on their quality and potency. Whether your loved ones want to boost their immune system, soothe their stress levels, or simply fill their home with delicious, all-natural aromas, you can’t go wrong with Vibrant Blue’s essential oil blends.

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. Which is why an air filter is a necessity.
Air Doctor 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, Air Doctor is backed by rigorous, third-party laboratory testing and studies – ensuring they deliver superior performance and peace of mind.

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.

While there are certainly guidelines that we can all follow, much of the time, finding what works can require quite a bit of trial and error – until now.

Give the Gift of A Low-Tox Lifestyle
We are bombarded with health-disrupting toxins on a daily basis. Help your loved ones make the switch over to a less toxic lifestyle by gifting them with these low-tox lifestyle must-haves:
There’s nothing more inviting than a fresh, clean home. But many of today’s cleaning products are chock-full of toxic chemicals that can be harmful to our well-being. To remedy this conundrum, Branch Basic’s has created the world’s safest home cleaning products.
Their line of cleaning products are made with 100% natural ingredients and proudly carry the Made Safe seal – the most comprehensive safety standard certification available, which certifies each of their products is free from the 5,000+ toxic chemicals known to harm human and environmental health.
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 are designed to last.
These organic mattresses are the perfect gift for the health-conscious or environmentally-sensitive loved ones on your list.
Toxic chemicals from man-made products like cleaning sprays, air fresheners, and furniture aren’t the only harmful compounds we have to worry about. Things like mold, fungi, bacteria, and other microbes can sneak their way into every crevice of your home and body where they can slowly chip away at your health.
Healing your home from mold and other microbes can be challenging to say the least. That’s why Microbalance has formulated their unique line of mold-fighting products. Their line-up of laundry additives, cleaning solutions, and air-purifying candles are specifically designed to remove spores and toxins from air and surfaces.
These safe, all-natural products are formulated by a physician that specializes in treating patients grappling with mold-related illnesses – meaning they’ve been rigorously tested and proven to combat mold and offer relief to those suffering from mold exposure.
Aires Tech and Bioelectric Shield EMF Shielding Devices
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. By tapping into cutting-edge technology that is clinically proven to absorb and restructure harmful EMFs – transforming 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. My all-time favorite EMF-blocking devices are:
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.
Their technology is backed by a robust library of published research, peer-reviewed studies, and clinical trials that have consistently proven the power of their products.
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 not only deflect EMFs but also the unhealthy energies from other people and places – amplifying your own energy while making you more resilient to the impacts of EMFs and negative energies.
They even have special EMF shielding pendants for dogs and cats for the pet lovers on your gift list!
These EMF-shielding products make a great gift for anyone – from techies to spiritual enthusiasts.

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.
