A look into the most popular wellness gifts given in 2016. If you’re done buying holiday gifts for friends and family, these may be good gifts to get for yourself… Treat yourself. You deserve it 😉
Himalayan Salt Lamp
I recently dove into the wonders of Himalayan salt lamps—Turns out, they were a trending gift item for 2016! Make sure you’re buying a quality lamp, so you can fully enjoy the benefits. Enjoy a soothing salt lamp at your bedside, work space, or go crazy with one in every room of the house.
Essential Oil Diffuser
Essential oil diffusers were a huge gift given in 2016, and I was part of the crew that received one! (Or maybe two… my family knows me well) Essential oils have been used for thousands of years for different health purposes. They also smell amazing! Using just water and essential oils, a diffuser disperses the aroma of the oils which deodorizes and cleanses the air we breathe. There are tons of different oils that each have unique health benefits. Diffusers are a great alternative to lighting candles which can be filled with harmful chemicals and other bad to breathe ingredients.
I’m no aromatic expert, so if you’re looking for an in-depth review on the exact type of diffuser to use, I suggest reading this article.
I got this inexpensive diffuser off amazon and am super happy with the product! I also love the wood paneling, which is the main reason I chose this one 🙂
Maybe thanks to the iPhone 7, which got rid of the headphone port, wireless headphones are popping up all over the place. They are the ideal headphone for fitness activities, and there are many types to choose from. (I will be placing my order shortly, as a phone drop in toilet incident forced me to upgrade early to the iPhone 7). You can choose from lightweight wireless ear buds or actual wireless headphones.

The Fitbit app rose to be the number 1 downloaded free app in Apple’s iOS app store on Sunday: meaning lots of people received this fitness tracker for Christmas. The fitbit watch helps track your fitness, weight, exercise, sleep and other activities to help motivate you in reaching your health goals. There are a variety of different models ranging from everyday to performance for the ultra serious fitness goer. One of the newest models, the Fitbit Charge 2 , features call, text & calendar alerts, GPS, and even guided breathing sessions.
The Universe Has Your Back
Featured on many “Top Wellness Book” lists this year, The Universe Has Your Back, by Gabby Bernstein is an awesome gift for a wellness bookworm. The book is about transforming your fear into faith, and quickly made it’s way to the New York Time’s bestseller list upon release. I already copped mine months ago, you can still get yours today.
