We love creating this Annual Holiday Guide. If you’re also looking to be mindful about the gifts you choose for your friends and family then my hope is that you’ll be inspired by our curated items for 2020 and beyond. And…we’ll continue to add more finds through December.

Three Hermits is based in Ayurvedic principles – a belief that food is medicine. I think most of us will agree. That’s why Turmeric is part of my lifestyle, so when I saw these I knew I had to give them a go. Cinnamon, too. They’re all natural with plant-based ingredients and they taste pretty good, too. Visit Three Hermits to find out more. A healthy holiday idea.
Color Up recently introduced its new Wash Up, Level Up, Drink Up skin care line infused with Organic Hemp CBD. Wash up has an enticing scent and The Tinsel-Time Trio Kit is an affordable way to gift these items (for you or others). Affordable skincare with benefits.
I love naturally scented sprays for a pick me up and this one checks all the boxes.
Happy-Lytes is an electrolyte rejuvenating misting spray with the added bonus of 100% pure therapeutic grade Bergamot Essential Oil. The Electrolytes, when breathed in, give the body a boost, while the Bergamot provides a natural mood boost! It’s also safe for adults and children. This item makes a great stocking stuffer!
Raise your hand if you love aromatherapy.
I love the essential oils that come with this Innogear diffuser – Lavender, lemongrass, eucalyptus, peppermint, sweet orange, and tea tree oil come with this set. It also has a timer so you can set it and enjoy the scent for an hour or longer. And, the oils are bottled in the USA. This one checks all the boxes including affordability and value.
If you’re wondering why I would include hair products in a holiday gift guide – well, here’s why. I was introduced to the Maria Nila line back in July with the travel sizes so it’s a great gift for your travel loving friends. The colour-preserving shampoo (and conditioner) helped extend my touch up time. It smells great and my hair feels so much better with a luster that I hadn’t seen in a while. There are other options including Heal, Volume, and Repair. Sulfate & paraben free. 100% vegan and cruelty free too.
Each year I search for the perfect planner for the new year. I came across the Law of Attraction Planner while searching last year and decided to grab one for 2021 in hopes I’ll get to use it more (2020 was kind of a wipe out, no!?). It may seem a little pricey at first, but it’s so much more than just a calendar.
It’s about creating your roadmap for the year as it includes awareness & self-discovery exercises, goal setting, a vision board, and so much more. You can check it out here.
“Mr. Martini – how about some wine!” Yes, from It’s a Wonderful Life and one of my favorite scenes.
I was introduced to St. Julian Winery & Distillery in Paw Paw, Michigan a few months back. I know – Michigan wine? Yes, there are some great wineries in Michigan and this one has been around for 100 years. They do it well. One of my faves is the Braganini Family Reserve 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, which is a dry and full-bodied wine. If you like Rosé all day, then the Braganini Family Reserve 2019 Serious Rosé is one to try. Wine makes a great holiday gift.
What a year it has been! Is anyone else looking forward to making 2021 the year of wanderlust and adventure? What’s on your travel bucket list? Let me know in the comments. In the meantime, here are a couple of places to consider.
Nature’s beauty is a gift that cultivates appreciation and gratitude.”

Miraval Berkshires opened this year and what a year to open a resort, right? Well, there were actually several resort openings around the world in 2020.
For east coast dwellers this is a drive-to resort located in Lenox, Ma and just a few hours from New Jersey and New York. Interested? Email me directly for more insight and to review options. A pre- or post-holiday wellness travel option.
This year kept me from my journey to Canyon Ranch Woodside so it’s on my list for 2021 and I wanted to share more info with you. This is the newest wellness resort for the brand. Immersed in nature, this resort is a little different from Tucson and Lenox as it’s more intimate and you’re surrounded by the Redwood Forest – the perfect spot for transformation.
