Wellness Gift Guide

Written by: Famous Foods | 2018-12-01 | no comments

Give your loved ones the gift of health and wellness with these gifts, available on our store shelves.

Beeswax Candles

Pure beeswax candles are an excellent gift for friends, family, party hosts and coworkers. They’re all-natural with no artificial ingredients, have a distinctively pleasant scent, and burn brightly and slowly. Bonus: they have an antibacterial quality that helps clean the air.

High-Quality Cooking Oils

For friends who are on a diet to lose weight or who are trying to eat healthy, high-quality vegetable oils become a delicious replacement for butter and animal oils. The use of olive oil in Mediterranean cooking is well-known but also available is coconut oil, which is high in healthy saturated fats, and truffle oil, which grants the taste of truffles without the expense and is rich in monounsaturated fats.

Essential Oils for Wellness

Fragrant essential oils, which can be applied directly to the skin, added to a bubble bath or diffused into the air, make a beautiful gift for friends and family including older adults and new parents. You can buy individual bottles, such of tea tree for skin ailments or lavender as a sedative, or look for sets that offer different oils. A hand-made potpourri of the matching herb makes a fragrant reminder of your kindness. If your recipient is unfamiliar with how to use essential oils, hand-writing a few instructions on a card adds a personal touch.

High-Quality Tea and Coffee

This gift works well for co-workers and gift exchanges as it’s not too personal and is available at different price points. Pairing a bag of organic ground coffee or a box of tea bags with organic fair-trade chocolate would make an excellent gift for the boss.

Meal in a Box

A Meal in a Box works well for the chef or foodie in your life. Put together all the ingredients to make a gourmet meal at home along with a recipe or two that you print from the Internet. One suggestion: a frozen organic filet of salmon with seasonal vegetables and potatoes plus a bottle of white wine. Tell your recipient to open this gift as soon as he or she gets it, so any perishables can be refrigerated or frozen immediately.
