Your holiday shopping just got easier. Everyone knows a traveler or someone who’s always on-the-go. This Christmas gift guide is suitable for the person who always seems to be on vacation or never seems to be home, that busy mom, the businessman who is regularly on the road or flying for work, and the soon-to-be honeymoon travelers. Also consider combining several of these items for a killer “themed” gift basket, which I personally love receiving!
Here are our top picks this holiday season with just that person in mind.
Dr Mercola sleep mask with lavender: This mask combines the benefits of eliminating light with the aromatherapy benefits of lavender and chamomile. Wearing a sleep mask at night blocks light from clocks, electronics, and outside lights, helping the body to get the uninterrupted, rejuvenating rest it needs. The scent of lavender promotes a sounder, more restful sleep. With over 100 million Americans reporting occasional sleep problems, the gift of better sleep is sure to be well received. 100% cotton sleep mask with a silky linen satin exterior.
Morrocco Method 5 Elements Shampoo Travel Set includes a sleek, sealable bag and five different shampoo scents in 2 fl oz bottles: Pine Shale, Apple Cider Vinegar, Sea Essence, Earth Essence and Heavenly Essence. The shampoo is 100% color safe, vegan, gluten free, animal cruelty free, and fair trade. It makes a great gift!
ChicoBag Travel Pack rePETe, Black w/Honeycomb: This bag contains a variety of pockets and straps to make traveling easier. There's a large main compartment, side and top stash pockets, and a storage area for your Kanteen water bottle. Each bag is made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, making it lightweight and machine washable. It also contains a one year warranty!
Kleen Kanteen Stainless Steel Bottle: We love Klean Kanteen flasks because the double wall vacuum insulation keeps food hot for up to 6 hours or cold for 24+ hours—you can’t do that with a paper or plastic cup! Hydro flasks are made with BPA-free, food-grade stainless steel and are non-porous, which prevent any bacteria from growing or weird odors. For frequent flyers, airlines allow stainless steel water bottles thru security if they're empty. These bottles also come with a variety of nifty top accessories, such as a café cap, wide flip D-ring cap, or wide loop cap. Can you say, “lifetime warranty?” Yep, it's true!
Live Superfoods Endurance Trail Mix: This is a must for travelers and those on-the-go. Avoid expensive, unhealthy airport food, or long, hungry car commutes by packing your own delicious food. This organic trail mix contains cashews, pistachios, cacao nibs, goji berries, mulberries, and golden raisins, which gives you steady energy and long-lasting satiety.
Live Superfoods Mango Slices: For whatever reason, these taste even better when you’re traveling. They're the perfect chewy texture and don't contain any added ingredients. Mangos are rich in vitamin A, C, E, and fiber, plus iron, potassium, and antioxidants. They also contain an enzyme with stomach-soothing properties.
Oatmega Omega-3 & Whey Protein Bar: If you’re on-the-go for work or family reasons, and no time or opportunity to stop to eat, Oatmega snack bars will certainly come in handy. This bar is low in sugar, and the 14 grams of protein + extra heart-healthy fat will give you long-lasting satiety. It also comes in many delicious flavors: Chocolate Coconut Crisp, Chocolate Mint Crisp, Lemon Chia Crisp and Brownie Crisp.
Vega One Nutritional Shake: Just add water and you have a meal! Available in berry, chocolate, vanilla chai, French vanilla, and natural flavors, this vegan all-in-one shake is full of plant-based protein, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, probiotics, greens, omega-3’s and antioxidants.
ChicoBag Snack Time: Use this fun, fashionable pouch to keep all your travel supplies in. It's a great alternative to plastic bags. It's water and stain-resistant interior allows for sandwiches, nuts, or other snacks.
Dr. Mercola Melatonin Sleep Support Spray: We know you’re busy, but you can’t be awake all the time. This is the perfect accompaniment to the sleep mask, delivering the ultimate in improved sleep. This all-natural melatonin supplement comes in a peppermint flavored spray. Just one pre-measured superfine spray dose will help increase feelings of sleepiness and enhance overall sleep quality.
Whether you're looking for a small gift, large gift, or stocking stuffer, any one of these items are bound to please the travelers and busy bodies on your Christmas list this year!
