A Nutritionist's Ultimate Gift Guide

A Nutritionist's Ultimate Gift Guide

As a holistic nutritionist, I go to great lengths to get a hold of and share my favourite things with others and that usually includes sustainable, natural, non-toxic, plant-based, ethical, local, and even organic gifts. If you’re like me, or maybe shopping for somebody who’s a bit of a health nut, I hope to make that process easier. I’ve compiled a Holiday Gift Guide that includes many of my go-to gifts that are sure to appeal to healthy, sustainable or ethically minded individuals.

Natural Skin Care

My absolute favourite gift to give is local, natural, and handmade soap or lip balms. Pretty
much everybody loves these gifts, and they make great stocking stuffers! Hand or body 
creams also make great gifts during winter months. Look for natural products that are free
of parabens and phthalates.

Organic Fair Trade Coffee, Chocolate & Teas

Kardish has a great selection of coffees, chocolates & teas for everyone on your list!


This fizzy, effervescent probiotic tea is extremely popular these days.  It also happens to make an a lovely and unique host/hostess gift in lieu of wine.

Essential Oils

Aromatherapy offers countless health benefits, especially during busy & stressful times like the holidays, and cold and flu season. Essential oils are perfect for stocking stuffers, or combined with a diffuser to make a scent-sational gift. 

Gift Cards

Although they aren’t as fun to open, gift cards can still be incredibly personal and thoughtful. Pretty much every store or service you can think of offers gift cards nowadays. If you’re in the the market for a health or wellness gift, your best bet would be health food stores (yes, Kardish has gift cards!), spas, massage therapy, healthy restaurants or meal delivery services, and yoga or fitness studios.

Nutritious Nosh

I love making homemade granola, trail mix, healthy sweets, chia jams, soup mixes, or mustard for friends and family. Kardish’s bulk section has tons of dried goods, spices and even refrigerated and frozen foods to help you put together your gifts.

Disclaimer: If you plan on doing DYI, just make sure you’re aware of any food allergies. 

House Plants

Did you know that certain plants can actually improve air quality in your home or apartment? Although Poinsettias are popular this time of year, up the ante by giving the gift of an air purifying plant. Mums, Peace Lilies, and Snake Plants can not only pull formaldehyde from the air, but they make an excellent gift.
