WBM Himalayan Glow Hand Carved Natural Crystal Himalayan Salt Lamp with Genuine Neem Wood Base, Bulb and Dimmer Control, 6-to-7-Inch, 5-to-6-Pounds
A Himalayan salt lamp is a great gift idea for anyone in your life who is interested in health and wellbeing.
We have a few in our home, including in our living room and in my kids’ bedrooms. The light from the lamp is very soothing and adds a great ambience to any room. It’s an inexpensive way to purify the air in your home. Many people with asthma report that using a Himalayan salt lamp helps them control the symptoms of asthma.
The salt lamp is made from natural salt crystals mined from the Himalayan mountains. When the lamp is in use, it heats the salt which releases negative ions into the air. This is like using an ionizer in your home, however you also have a built-in lamp with a calming, amber color.
Each salt lamp is hand carved and has an individual appearance- no two salt lamps are identical in size, color, weight or shape.
When you purchase the salt lamp, it comes with a 6ft power cord, a 15 watt light bulb and a rotary dimmer switch. All components are UL approved.
The lamp sits on a base made of genuine neem wood in a natural finish, which is from the neem tree from India. Neem wood is known as being an effective botanical insecticide, which means that it’s a long lasting and durable wood. It’s the best choice of wood for a Himalayan salt lamp, so that your lamp lasts many years.
TaoTronics Essential Oil Diffuser, 100ml Ultrasonic Humidifier Portable Aromatherapy Diffuser, Aroma Diffuser with Cool Mist and Color Changing LED Lights, Silent Buttons
We can’t talk about health and wellness gift ideas without mentioning an essential oil diffuser!
A thoughtful gift for anyone who likes calmness and relaxation is an essential oil diffuser.
The TaoTronics essential oil diffuser is one of the most popular diffusers with Home Health Living readers. It has an elegant design and is very simple to use.
The diffuser has a water capacity of 100ml, and it has an LED light with 7 different colors. It uses ultrasonic technology which is when vibrations are created to break down water molecules, rather than using heat which damages essential oils.
A gentle mist can be set at continuous or intermittent, which operates every 30 seconds. There is an automatic shut off feature for when the unit runs low on water. You don’t have to remember to switch off the unit before leaving home!
If you don’t want to use essential oils, the diffuser can be used without them. The unit then becomes a small humidifier to add moisture to a dry room. This would be perfect in a small bedroom.
Don’t forget to include a set of essential oils- read on for our recommendation of the best oils.
If you’re buying someone an essential oil diffuser, don’t forget to buy a gift set of essential oils!
The Eden’s Garden essential oil sampler gift set is a great gift choice for those who are just starting out with aromatherapy and using essential oils.
The gift pack features 6 bottles of eucalyptus, Bulgarian lavender, lemon, peppermint, sweet orange and tea tree. Each bottle contains 10ml.
It’s important to use pure therapeutic grade essential oils. The oils in this gift pack are 100% pure therapeutic grade. The oils are GC/MS tested to ensure they are certified pure essential oils. The oils are pure and contain no herbicides, pesticides, GMOs or additives.
To ensure that the properties of the essential oils remain intact, they are stored in a temperature controlled room with minimal light.
The oils are packed in amber glass bottles with a Euro style dropper cap.
When you buy the gift set, you also receive a free booklet, 150 Ways to Use Essential Oils.
Drinking a warm cup of tea while sitting infront of an open fire place is a lovely way to spend your time at Christmas. And in recent years, teas have become so popular that there are so many different varieties and flavors available to suit any palate.
For those who are health conscious, a beautifully boxed set of herbal and black teas is a great Christmas gift idea.
The Numi organic tea blend gift set comes with a variety of 45 different organic, fair trade and non-FMO teas, including Jasmine green, Moroccan mint (a favorite of mine!), Rooibos and chocolate pu-erh. And for those who prefer black teas rather than herbal teas, there are also breakfast blends and aged Earl Grey.
The tea bags are gift packed in a beautiful and sustainable handcrafted bamboo tea chest.
What I like about Numi is that its sources its tea ethically from gardens that are Fair Trade Certified and Fair Labor Verified. Numi is a social enterprise. Numi’s philosophy is that all people should be paid an ethical wage to allow their families and communities to thrive and grow.
Numi’s teas are USDA certified organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, carbon-free, vegan-friendly and gluten-free. The teas are also certified Halal and Kosher. The packaging used is recyclable and biodegradable sustainable packaging.
Danielle Walker’s Against All Grain Celebrations: A Year of Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Paleo Recipes for Every Occasion
I’ve been following Danielle’s journey for the past 3 years, after I came across her Facebook page. Danielle has been to hell and back with her autoimmune issues, and along the way discovered how changing her diet could help her nurse herself back to better health.
She has shared her experiences and recipes to help others with various health issues, or for those wanting to try and eat grain-free.
In her latest book, “Celebrations: A Year of Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free and Paleo Recipes for Every Occasion”, Danielle shares 125 recipes and ideas that you can use for those important celebrations such as Christmas, Easter and birthdays.
What I like about Danielle’s books is her willingness to make recipes as simple as possible. The recipes are all tried-and-true, and you don’t have to wonder whether you’re spending a fortune on ingredients making something that doesn’t turn out.
Danielle caters for families. Being a mother herself, she knows how hard it can be to try and convince your family to eat grain-free. I’ve tried many of Danielle’s recipes and my kids and I love them!
There is something here for every family, taking traditional favorites and making them grain-free and healthier.

Aquagear Water Filter Pitcher – Removes Fluoride & Lead – 150 Gallon Filter Aqua Gear Filter – Clear
A practical and healthy gift to give this Christmas is a water filter pitcher, and one of the most effective water filter pitchers on the market is the Aquagear.
A few months ago we reviewed the best water filter pitchers on the market, and rated the Aquager the best water filter pitcher.
It removes fluoride and lead, which most other pitchers cannot do. Water runs through its filter system that’s made up of 5 different stages. The filters remove far more contaminants than any other water filter pitcher currently on the market.
It has a 150 gallon capacity, which is great for larger households.
If you’re buying someone who is not only health conscious but cares for the environment, then you’ll be happy to know that the Aquagear water filter pitcher is 100% BPA-free, made in the U.S.A., is recyclable and vegan-friendly!
Give the gift of a good night’s sleep with the Snuggle-pedic bamboo shredded memory foam pillow.
I’ve been using a memory pillow for several years now and I find it easier to sleep with, plus the quality of the pillow is far superior.
The Snuggle-pedic uses eco-friendly Biogreen and Certipur-US certified foam. This foam is made without ozone depleters, flame retardants, lead, mercury, formaldehyde or phthalates, and is low in volatile organic compounds. This is the ideal pillow for those who are healthy and environmentally conscious.
It is hypoallergenic and dust mite resistant, making it a great pillow for anyone with asthma or allergy issues.
The pillow comes with a 20-year warranty and a 90-night sleep trial, which we’re really impressed with. The company stands by its product!
Health and Wellness Gifts Under $300
If you’re looking to buy something extra special for that health conscious family member or friend, we have a few excellent health product recommendations priced below $300.
The Rolls Royce of food dehydrators is the Excalibur.
It comes with 9 trays, allowing for 15 square feet of drying space. This is ideal for someone who likes to bulk dehydrate foods or has a large family.
There is a 26-hour timer to keep an eye on the unit, as well as an adjustable thermostat temperature control ranging from 105F to 165F. You can control the temperature depending on what food you are dehydrating. This helps to preserve nutrients found in herbs, and makes the Excalibur an excellent choice to dehydrate meat to use for jerky.
Excalibur features a patented Parallex Horizontal Airflow which helps draw the cool air in from the back of the unit, heats it and then evenly distributes the air over each tray. This helps the food to dehydrate faster.
What we love about the Excalibur is by removing the trays, you can use the unit to raise bread and dough, make yoghurt and use for art and craft purposes.
The unit is made in the U.S.A.
Drinking a fresh fruit or healthy vegetable juice is so important for our health. If you’re looking to give someone the gift of good health, then a juicer is a perfect health and wellbeing gift idea.
We recommend the best-seller Omega J8006 juicer.
The Omega J8006 is a slow juicer, meaning that its twin gears rotate at a slower speed than your traditional juicers. This helps to retain the nutrients found in the fruits and vegetables, which leaves you with a healthier drink.
The gears on the juicer are 8 times stronger than most other types of plastics found in other juicers. The juicer has a rotating speed of only 80rpm!
The Omega also reduces the oxidation of the juice, meaning you can bulk-juice your produce and store it in the fridge without spoiling for up to 72 hours.
If you like juicing greens such as kale or spinach, the Omega J8006 is an excellent choice to do this. Its gears have been designed to be able to extract the maximum juice from leafy green vegetables.
