The holidays are here! And that means loads of yummy foods, carols on repeat, and my favorite: gift giving!!!
Nothing excites me more than finding the perfect gift for my friends or family. Personally, I try getting people something that’s not on their wish list. Not because I don’t want them to have what they want—but because I prefer to be creative and surprise them. Anyone else?
Anywho, if you’re like me and 2018 sped by real quick and now it’s almost 2019 and you haven’t gotten around to holiday shopping, don’t worry! I’ve got your back. The following gift guide is packed with gifts that will spread joy, promote a healthy and happy life, and make anyone’s holiday special.
PS: I’ve crafted this list with travelers in mind! So if you’ve got a health-obsessed traveler in your life, this list is for you! And anyone else, obviously. But especially those who can’t get enough adventure.
