When a generic gift voucher for a shopping centre or a cosmetic set from the chemist just won’t cut it, something a bit more unusual is called for. A gift voucher for a wellness experience is just so thoughtful and gives something to look forward to, and if you are going the product route, something that they will really love and shows how well you know them is the way to go this year. This is my personally recommended list, with some discount codes on some items too! This article contains some affiliate links.
Sustainable coconut bowl and cutlery
While having an Instagram worthy breakfast is not high on everyone’s priorities, finding a wellness lover who wouldn’t enjoy eating their meals from such a beautiful and sustainable vessel would be hard to find. Visit Coconutbowls.com and check out their range including their original Coconut Bowls which are discarded coconut shells, handcrafted by artisans and sanded until smooth, then polished with coconut oil, to bring out their natural beauty. Their product materials are eco-friendly and sourced sustainably, are ethically made, and all orders are packaged with recyclable materials. Use the discount code 13FE2AC4 for 10% off any products. For inspiration, check out my coconut bowl smoothie recipe here.
Voucher for yoga classes and workshops
Of course, I couldn’t write a gift guide without including my own Wild Soul gift vouchers. They come in an electronic version, to print yourself or email, or physical gift vouchers which I can post to the recipient at no extra cost to you. They start at 10 euro for a class pass all the way up to 150 for a 17 class pass/bundle of 1 to 1 sessions. So from something to pop into a card to “the big present” for someone who has everything, I got you covered. My most popular gift voucher is for my yoga and wellness workshops which is gifting a whole evening of relaxation and stress relief and a chance to win some amazing prizes. Check out my shop here.
Organic cake mixes
I told you this was an unusual guide, didn’t I? With going in and out of lockdown all the time we are not getting to eat out as much as we might like. I for one miss going out for protein pancakes brunch but now I can make them at home with Superfood Bakery pancake mixes (comes in a regular non-protein version too). For someone who feels the same or loves a sweet treat or two, their brownie mix is to die for. Assuming your wellness lover is health conscious, they will love the idea of vegan friendly, gluten-free, dairy-free natural baking mixes. Use the code MAGS20 for 20% discount of any mixes (but pancakes is my fav!)
Nuasan Active Bodycare Kit
Definitely not another basic toiletry set, this is the perfect gift for active people, yogis, runners, sea swimmers, you name it. Ideal for both men and women, each product scent is neutral, yet refreshing and natural. Treat them to a premium, natural, Irish-made and sustainable giftset that shows your care and respect for their love of sports and being active. The kit contains Nuasan Active Body Wash, Nuasan Active Body Wipes and a microfibre sports towel (with a secret compartment for keys etc., very handy!!)
All Nuasan products are sustainably manufactured and use natural active ingredients that are tailored specifically for active women and men to repair and refresh muscles, body and skin. They are perfect for use after a session at the gym, yoga, a match, hike or a long day on their feet.
You can sign up for the Nuasan newsletter for 10% off any product but especially for you, I have an amazing 15% off this gift set with the code MAGS15
A bit of a quirky one but don’t we all have someone we love who is a bit run down and keeps saying they must get themselves a tonic or a supplement? Buying an immunity boost supplement to put in their stocking shows you really care. It might be something they would never get around to buying themselves but may become the start of a new habit of self-care. I trust Irish brand Active Iron and I recommend their Active Immune as my daily supplement. Use the code WILD20 for 20% off all products in the Active Iron range including subscriptions! How amazing would a subscription be as a gift? You are looking after your loved one continually throughout 2021 and they don’t even have to leave the house to get their supplement.
Bundle of Hope gift pack
This Christmas gift pack by Donegal Bogcotton Company was designed especially for those who have had a particularly hard time this year. Included is a Hope candle, Hope soap bar and Quartz Crystal to help us look positively into 2021. Share this gift as an offering that it may provide some hope and perhaps even a balm in this sometimes sad and lonely time. Replace thoughts of living in a place of fear with living in a place of hope where you can see heroism, sacrifice and humanity thrive with kindness. No discount code required, you can have 20% off just by shopping the set on their website now. I love this small Irish business and can see them going places in 2021.
