my enlightened holiday gift guide
It's the most wonderful time of the year...
The Holidays are different for everyone: some people love it, some people can't stand it, but we all have to be present. I wanted to take the opportunity to make the holiday shopping a little easier by sharing some of the wonderfully "enlightened" gifts I picked up for the people on my gift list this year & some ways to give back.
for the yogi
Ganja Yoga by Dee Dussault
This fabulous book bridges the gap between Yoga & Cannabis, which have more in common than many people think. Whether your new to yoga, new to cannabis, or a pro at both, you & any Yogi on your gift list will greatly enjoy this educational & interactive book.
For the Traveler
AirBnB Gift Card
AirBnB has revolutionized my travel experience! Over the past 5 years, I've stayed in dozens of AirBnB's in 12 different cities across 6 different states.
Having worked in a hotel for several years in my youth, I am not a huge fan of a closet with up to 2 (supposedly clean) beds & a toilet for $300+/night. There's something about having a separate bedroom, living room, full size bathroom (or 2), a fully stocked kitchen, and a free parking space that's not a 10 min walk from your room that makes staying in someone's AirBnB extra enjoyable. The best thing about these Gift Cards is they don't expire, they're super easy to use & they can be collected/combined to give your beloved traveler a trip they'll never forget.
for the chef
from Cured Nutrition
CBD stands for Cannabidiol, the non-psychoactive compound found in Marijuana, that has endless benefits from pain relief to anxiety relief. The buzz on CBD products has grown exponentially over the past couple years, as have the options for consumption. CBD's can be found naturally in Marijuana, so you will find CBD flowers, concentrates, tinctures, vape pens, edibles, topicals & more. I've had CBD infused protein, CBD teas, lattes & I am so excited about the introduction of these CBD seasonings. If you're unfamiliar with the benefits of CBD, you can check out ProjectCBD's beginner guide here.
The site also has some great recipes, like this Honey Spiced Winter Squash, and I will be featuring some CBD recipes VERY SOON!
Please note: due to overwhelming support at their launch this holiday season Cured Nutrition's website will be down for a few days; but you can sign up for notifications here and be the first to know when they're back open for business.
