We are really getting to the pointy end of the year now and if you are anything like me, you may still have a few (or many) 'gifts to buy' on your to-do list, despite your best intentions to have all of your Christmas shopping complete by now!
Fear not! I have come to your rescue with my top Christmas gift ideas. From stocking fillers to your secret Santa gifts, there is something for all.
When it comes for buying for men, that shit is hard! Unless you want to fork out on a motorbike, surfboard, WAECO, drone or some other you-beaut bloke gift you'll generally have to stick to the socks, jocks, shirts and cologne categories (nothing wrong with those!).
When it comes to females we are easily pleased! There is a plethora of gifts you could get us which we would love. But if you are stuck on what to buy for your best mate, Sister, Mum, Nan, Granny, Aunty, Cousin or any special lady in your life - here are six items any health loving, sun seeking, fitness enthusing woman would love! All of these products are tried, tested and loved by me (in alphabetical order):
BALANCE FITNESS & NUTRITION GIFT VOUCHER
I had to throw this one in there. It's a safe bet and can be used for a nutrition and/or training plan, to join up to my STRIVE program, PT sessions, BFN merchandise and more! For any amount starting from $55 and valid for six months. Email me to arrange your gift voucher today!
INIKA Organics is the #1 certified organic make-up brand, trusted worldwide and the makeup of choice for stylishly natural women everywhere. This is now all that my make-up kit is comprised of and I love this brand! Gift vouchers are also available, but if you had to ask me or wanted to give a physical gift, my top three picks are the BB cream (an absolute favourite), Baked Mineral Bronzer and Long Lash Vegan Mascara. For the healthy, eco-conscious lady in your life, know that she'll love anything from their range. https://www.inikaorganic.com/au/
MOVE YOUR BODY
Be it activewear, swimwear, granola or fitness accessories - Move Your Body is a one stop shop when it comes to health and wellbeing. With one very driven and passionate lady behind the brand, MYB is all about every size, every shape, every body (so there really is something for EVERY woman in your life). Be it online or in store check them out for a gift voucher or latest luxe activewear. My latest lusts are the Abi & Joseph Tied Up Tank, Vie Active Charcoal Vine Tight and CadenShae Tank in Blush.
POLAR make both stylish and practical candy for the fitness lovers arm. I have always been a big fan of heart rate monitors for a number of reasons (which will be tackled in a soon-to-be published blog), and a loyal POLAR lover. They are great for tracking distance from the novice to the experienced runner, activity levels, monitor sleep, check your calories burnt, recovery time and so much more! With products ranging to suit those that are after a 'lifestyle' friendly watch right through to pro level. My current top picks for these products would be the M200 GPS running watch and M600 smart watch. The easy to use M200 is a waterproof running watch with wrist-based heart rate, integrated GPS and 24/7 activity tracking, and great value for money. If you have a little bigger budget, the M600 is a sleek, stylish smart watch that provides all of the functionality of a great heart rate monitor, all whilst keeping you connected. You can also receive $50 off of the M600 until the 31st December online at POLAR.
THE SILVER WREN
Specialising in meaningful, handcrafted and personalised jewellery, from silver and gold to rose gold. There is a metal to match us all. I now own a number of pieces from this unique brand and love each one. My top picks would be the disc necklaces, I got mine personalised with a wave to symbolise my love for the ocean, coastal living and sunny adventures. Michelle and her team will be sure to look after and you'll most probably end up a repeat customer life myself!
WE ARE FEEL GOOD
These babies make GREAT stocking fillers and will also get plenty of use over your summer holidays! WAFG are a WA owned and based business that aim to produce the world’s best broad spectrum sunscreen with the best possible ingredients to do the job. Whilst their range isn't organic or natural, it is SPF50+, free of parabens, oxybenzone, PABA and preservatives. I don't know about you, but for me protection factor and affordability are a must - particularly if you go through sunscreen at the rate in which our little family does! My top three picks are the PAWPAW, Sensitive Sunscreen and Coconut Sunscreen. They suit our active, outdoorsy, practical lifestyle perfectly, as they will yours!
WOMEN'S HEALTH & FITNESS MAG
Whether it be the January edition or a yearly subscription that is gifted, you cannot go wrong with this! WH&F mag is my favourite health and fitness magazine out there and I love being able to contribute to it on a regular basis. With a tag line like 'It's a look, not a lifestyle', which aligns perfectly with my very own 'Extremes are easy. Strive for balance', the publication encompasses it all from nutrition, mindset, movement, beauty and more. Check out the January edition out on the 20th December for something exciting from yours truly x
With so many to choose from, the lady/ies that you love in your life will be stoked to get any of the above!
