Today is December 8 and I want to talk about Christmas Gift ideas.
So you don't know what to give your loved ones for Christmas? I was inspired by Rawvana on youtube for this post, so please have a look at her video for more Christmas gift ideas, click here!
1. Lip scrub
Inspired by Lush lip scrubs, this is a perfect gift for Christmas!
DIY scrub: Using an old lip balm container, or just a small jar, you can mix your own delicious sugar lip scrub!
Mix some raw sugar, extra virgin organic coconut oil, vanilla, a little beetroot juice for a lovely pink colour, and you can add some mint for a refreshing feel too!
The sugar will gently exfoliate away any dry skin from your lips, and the extra virgin coconut oil will moisturise, leaving your lips soft and conditioned!
Or Lush cosmetics carries a few lip scrubs! http://www.lush.com.au/shop/product/product&product_id=635
2. Coffee body scrub.
I've been using coffee scrubs for a few years now, and it's such a great way to exfoliate your skin and make it smooth and silky.
DIY scrub: ground coffee, coconut oil, brown sugar. The coffee and brown sugar will exfoliate the skin and the coconut oil will moisturise and hydrate your body.
Or Frank Body has a few coffee scrubs too
3. Julienne peeler, or a Spiralizer/Veggie Twister.
I have been using a julienne peeler lately as it is a fast and clean way to make veggie pasta/noodles. It works great for cucumber, zucchini, carrots.
Here is a julienne peeler on Amazon, but most supermarkets will have one.
I have the Veggie Twister, and it's a great and cheap gift idea!
4. Manual juicer
I love my manual juicer, it's really easy to use, it doesn't need any electricity, so it can be used when you're camping or at the beach!
This juicer is great because you can juice leafy greens in it, like kale, parsley, spinach, lettuce, and fruit like apples, oranges, berries, vegetables like cabbage, broccoli, zucchini, cucumber, celery, and even roots like carrots and beetroot!
It's available on Amazon and it's a great and cheap gift!
5. Bobble Water Bottle
I like this cute water bottle. It has a coloured filter so you can use any tap water and it will filter it! It's great because you can change the filter and choose a different colour every time!
It's available on Amazon and some stores.
6. Sushi maker
I think this is a great gift for a sushi lover! So easy to use and it will make dinner more creative!
Amazon has it.
I love my ceramic knife, it's so sharp and easy to use! I have tried cutting fruit and veggies with a ceramic knife and with a stainless steel knife and the result was that the fruit cut with ceramic like apples and banana did not oxidise as much as the ones cut with a normal knife.
I recommend buying a ceramic knife with a Plastic blade cover, because the blade will break if it falls on the floor.
Here is one on Amazon.
8. Nut milk bag
I hope you know by know how bad dairy is for humans, and for the environment.
That is why I recommend making your own nut milk! Using any nuts you like like cashew, macadamia, walnuts, or even seeds like sesame or hemp, blend them with water, strain them using a nut milk bag and there you have a delicious raw vegan milk!
This one is ok.
9. A jar of Homemade Nutella.
You can use my recipe for homemade vegan Nutella that is delicious and healthy! Create a delicious chocolate spread for the loved ones!
10. A Dry Body Brush
This is a must have in any woman's daily ritual! Just a few Dry Body Brushing BENEFITS: promotes circulation, energises, activates the lymphatic system, opens the pores to release toxins, reduces the appearance of cellulite, and many other benefits!
I recommend buying a detachable one, as you will use to top brush on your body, and use the handle to reach your backside.
Body brush on Amazon.
11. A skipping rope
Hey, who doesn't like to have fun? Skipping is so much fun, and it's so energising! Tip: use a weighed skip rope for an extra challenge, like this one on Amazon!
Handmade with love, personalised for the special one, this is a beautiful gift idea!
Have a beautiful day!
Today's Mantra: I take the time to show my friends that I care about them.
