The Best Non-Toxic Holiday Gifts
Stumped for gifts this holiday season? Give the gift of good health with these 10 non-toxic holiday gifts! You’ll find something for everyone on your list here.
Perfect for: the coffee connoisseur, tea lover
If there is one thing that I can always rely on when I’m in a time crunch it’s my Cosori Electric Kettle. Not only can this kettle boil water in minutes, but it also does it non-toxic style. We want to avoid as much plastic in the kitchen as possible – and last time I checked, drinking boiled plastic didn’t make that cup of green tea any healthier.
Plastics contain phthalates, which are xenoestrogens that disrupt hormones and can increase the severity of those types of health issues. When plastic is heated, it can leach chemicals into our food and drinks. So if I’m being honest, putting plastic in an electric kettle was a horrible design flaw. And this might surprise you but even some stainless steel kettles have plastic on the inside that comes into contact with the water when it’s boiling.
Thankfully, with this Cosori Glass Kettle, you can still have the conveniences of an electric kettle without the harmful plastic. With colder weather approaching, this is the perfect holiday gift to give this season.
Perfect for: the seasoned chef, beginner cook, foodie
My VitaClay is hands down my favorite kitchen appliance for so many reasons. First and foremost, it’s non-toxic. Most slow cookers are glazed with chemicals and metals that end up leaching into your home cooked meals.
The VitaClay is crafted from organic, unglazed clay. This is huge! Not only does that mean that it’s non-toxic but it’s also alkalizing, paramagnetic, and infrared. These properties foster huge health benefits. Organic clay activated enzymes and minerals in your food, allow extraction of powerful nutrients and amazing flavors.
Because unglazed clay amplifies flavors, the VitaClay cooks all recipes to perfection. My favorite part? You can cook just about anything in it: bone broth, soup, jook, chili, steamed veggies, and fish! Oh and if you want to incorporate more gut healing foods into your life, try making probiotic-rich, creamy yogurt on the low temperature setting. Just having the VitaClay available inspires me to make healing foods every day. So, giving the gift of a VitaClay is kind of like giving the gift of good health and inspiration.
Perfect for: the party host, the one who needs “me-time”, the “I’ve got your back” neighbor
Who doesn’t love candles? Candles are THE go-to gift for the holidays.
They can help set the scene for anything – from a small get together to a big dinner, to a Sunday night bath. Candles have that magical ability to make a space warm and inviting. But what if they could do more? What if candles could set the vibe? Well, that’s exactly what these essential oil candles do. They’re not just any ordinary, conventional candle.
When you burn a conventional candle, you’re releasing toxic chemicals and known carcinogens into the air. When I first learned this horrible news, I was devastated to say the least. I love dim lighting and I love a wonderful smelling home. So when I discovered essential oil soy candles, I was through the roof! Essential oils are incredible aromatherapy with tons of benefits. Throw them in a candle and you instantly have a lovely ambiance and the house just feels a little more like home.
With 4 options, you’ll find the perfect gift for anyone. Choose from Sweet Clementine, Lavender and Cedar, Rosemary and Lemon, or Grapefruit and Spearmint. Candles are a thoughtful gift for an overworked mama, an always-there-for-you neighbor, and a special friend.
Perfect for: the hard worker, the athlete, the student
What is the number one thing you’re going to need on January 1st? If you’re like me – the answer is – “to relax”. It’s no secret that the holidays can really wear you down, especially if you’re the one hosting or traveling. Give the gift of relaxation with one of these neck wraps.
First, let’s talk about the Tension Relieving Neck Wrap. This neck wrap will melt tension away and provide natural relief from muscle aches and pain. The beauty of this pack is that you can create the comfort you crave – whether that’s warm or cool. Cool and warm therapy works wonders for pain relief. And we’re on board with any natural remedy that works for pain relief. All you have to do is stick it in the microwave or freezer to get the relief you desire. This neck wrap is perfect for everyone but especially awesome for the person that works hard on the computer all day.
Next up: our Signature Aroma Wrap. I’m a huge fan of the aroma wrap because it always helps me relax and de-stress after a long day’s work. It puts pain, stiffness, migraines, and headaches to bed. How does it do all of this?! The power of essential oils! If you know me at all, you know I’m an essential oil junkie.
My favorite part about the aroma wrap is that you can use whatever essential oil blend you want to target your specific concern. Whether you need to unwind after work or get energized for the day ahead – the aroma wrap can help.
Bucky Eye Mask
Perfect for: the troubled sleeper, the traveler
I don’t know about you but eye masks have always made me feel like I’m in a movie: where the character wakes up, stretches their arms out wide with a big smile, looking like they just had the best sleep of their life!
This holiday season, what is a better way to show someone you care then by gifting them with the rejuvenating sleep they deserve? These are one of our absolute favorite holiday gifts and they make fantastic stocking stuffers too!
The Bucky Eye Mask blocks out light pollution and blocking out light pollution is absolutely necessary to fall asleep and stay asleep. If you want a productive day, no brain fog, and lasting energy, then quality shut eye is a must and the best way to get that is with a comfortable eye mask.
Let’s be honest, most eye masks aren’t comfortable. They’re loose and fall off in the middle of the night or let slivers of annoying light in. This one is different.
We love these masks because they have deeply molded cups that allow you to blink freely and sleep with optimal comfort. So whether you want to surprise someone who travels a lot and needs a solid sleep on a flight or you just want a loved one to sleep tight at home, this eye mask will be their new best friend.
EMF Blocker for Electronics
Perfect for: the techy one, the school-goer, workaholic
Protect you and your family from EMFs with this blocker.
EMF (Electromagnetic Frequency) is a growing concern and it should be. The number of connected devices that we use is growing rapidly with no signs of slowing down. And there are some serious health issues associated with EMF. These include, but are not limited to:
- Brain Fog
- Hormone imbalance
- Increased risk of cancer
- Adrenal Fatigue
Children also absorb more EMF than adults (which is why I highly recommend our EMF shielding devices for pregnancy and baby).
This is a widespread (and poorly regulated) problem. Investing in the only technology that is scientifically proven to reduce the harmful effects of electromagnetic radiation emitted from cell phones, wifi routers, and other consumer electronic devices.
The Aires Tech Shield can be applied to portable electronic devices. Cell phones, laptops, tablets – even baby monitors, microwaves, and smart TVs can all be used with Shield. This season, protect yourself and your family and make this a holiday gift for a friend too.
5 Minute Journal
Perfect for: the book worm, the planner, writer, the thoughtful family member
This 5 minute activity is the key to beginning and ending our days with peace, joy, and ultimate gratitude. You know how when you were little and someone asked what you wanted for the holidays and you said world peace? (Was that only in the movies?) Well, I know world peace is a hard gift to give, but with this 5 Minute Journal you can give someone peace.
This journal is a very simple concept (and the book itself is really simple), but the ritual will transform a person’s day. The 5 Minute Journal has been one of the most useful tools in our family for creating alignment between our intentions for the day and what we actually do.

Erbaviva Bath Salts
Perfect for: the beauty guru, exhausted mama, lover of baths
I don’t know about you but before I started my non-toxic journey I was the girl in the mall that would get almost all of her holiday gifts from bath and body works. I mean, it was a no brainer! Everyone loves a lovely perfume, body lotion, and bath salts. You just couldn’t go wrong.
As I started my non-toxic journey, I realized how nasty the ingredients in those beloved (conventional) gifts actually are!
Instead, I love to give my girlfriends something that will help them renew their body and mind. These Erbaviva Bath Salts are perfect for soaking or scrubbing – and will make anyone feel like they’ve just checked into a 5-star spa resort.
Organic Cotton Swaddles
Perfect for: expecting moms
Sleep can be elusive in baby’ first year as those of us with children already know. The best way to ease the disruption that sleepless nights can bring is to make a child’s sleep environment as comfy as possible. To make swaddling a cinch you need at least 3 things – and these swaddles have them all:
1. Fabric that is non-toxic, preferably organic
Yes, there are toxic fabrics that are treated with chemicals that you don’t want to have against a baby’s skin. This swaddle is GOTS certified and OEKO-TEX certified which means there are no harmful ingredients or chemical residues coming into contact with a baby’s delicate skin.
2. Fabric that is breathable
Babies don’t regulate their temperature as well as older kids and adults, so we must choose a fabric that’s breathable for baby’s skin; that way your baby is comfortable, not too hot or too cold. This is why we love organic cotton muslin. It’s light and airy and breathable even during the warmer months. I have also loved using the swaddle blanket as a nursing cover, too.
3. Fabric that is large enough
Trying to swaddle a baby with a “too small” blanket is frustrating and unsafe. A blanket that is “too small” can’t be tucked properly meaning baby can break out of the swaddle leaving a loose blanket next to baby while they sleep. It’s not safe. Choosing a large swaddle blanket that is easy to wrap properly not only gives you peace of mind that baby is secure it’s also just way easier for parents to use too.
Another amazing gift for an expecting mom is our EMF Protection Belly Band. EMF radiation from cell phones and electronics could be putting the baby at risk. Protect a growing baby from dangerous EMF radiation with this stylish and convenient EMF protection belly band.
