For the fourth year in a row, it’s The Plante Life Holiday Gift Guide!
I know the holidays will look very different for all of us this year, and with that, we can all use a little extra joy! And there’s still plenty of time to give a little extra love to the wonderful people in your life.
Now, you know I love a good gift that serves two purposes, so I’ve put together a collection of gift options that are not only fun + functional, but also good for the mind, body and planet. Not to mention, everything on the list is affordable!
Get ready to fill your loved ones’ stockings with cheer (and maybe pick up something for yourself too)!
Four Sigmatic adaptogen coffee/matcha/lattes!
Oh… what healthy person in your life doesn’t want to try some adaptogen coffee, hot chocolate, or matcha?! Adaptogens are super-herbs that bring our body back to homeostasis – they work with each body differently, depending on what your imbalances are and what your body needs.
Some of my favorite adaptogens are ashwaghanda, eleuthro, and Rhodiola. All of which you can find in Four Sig products!
My favorite Four Sigmatic products are their adaptogen coffee, chaga mushroom elixir mix, mushroom hot cacao (it’s like a delish, creamy HOT CHOCOLATE!), and their regular mushroom coffee mix.
If you’re going for the Four Sig gifts this year, I recommend getting a BUNDLE! That way you’re giving your loved one a nice curated bundle of things you think they’ll love—and will enhance their health!
Subscription to Dry Farm Wines!
You know I love me a good glass of wine, BUT a lot of wines have added sugars, alcohol, sulfites and a lot of other junk that’ll make you feel like crap. I LOVE this company so much because I’m able to enjoy a glass without feeling it the next day—and they are delish!
Dry Farm Wines curates only the highest quality natural wines from small family farms that meet their strict standard of purity. Unlike today’s commercialized and processed wines, this is real wine. Nothing added, nothing removed. Pure, artisanal, and delicious.
Here are some deets, for you wine connoisseurs:

Enough said! If it feels a bit pricey, share a box with a friend or two. That’s what I do!! And you can cancel anytime. 🙂
Super Attractor by Gabby Bernstein
Gabby is one of my fav spiritual teachers and guides. I go to her books and her programs every time I need a boost to tune back into myself and drop the bullshit negative self-talk and fear-based actions.
Her books are also great for friends who are just getting into spirituality, as she writes them from a her approachable and very personal experience and shares many intimate details from her own life.
She draws on the teachings from A Course in Miracles (another great read) and from her own teachers like Marianne Williamson, Wayne Dyer and Deepak Chopra. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Super Attractor, and it would be great to give to a girlfriend, your mom, etc.!
I LOVE the journals at Your Joyologist, with the best quotes on them that I am obsessed with. She also sells mugs, tumblers, magnets, and key chains with inspirational quotes on them like, “Fuck The Shoulds, Do the Wants,” and “Everything Is Going My Way.”
A simple and easy gift for someone who loves to journal or is looking to get more in-tune & inspired on a daily basis.
PERFECT for the hard-to-shop for friends/partners/men in your life, as well as anyone into fitness! What I love about the Theragun Wave Roller is that it connects via bluetooth to an app and you can choose a vibrating speed based on the exact relaxation you need – be it warm up, cool down, or anything in between.
So many people have started exercising this quarantine time, and this gift is the perfect way to ensure they’re taking proper care of their muscles along the way!
You can hank me later. Seriously.
As you know, I’m big into health and wellness from the inside out- and one of the pillars of good health is proper SLEEP- if someone in your life isn’t the best sleeper, a weighted blanket might be the perfect thing to bring them comfort in the night and help them sleep longer.
With different weight options, you can customize this gift to anyone on your list. I love Gravity Blankets – they’re the OG in the field and create long lasting pieces so you’re sleeping well for years to come!
Gorgeous Glacce Straws and Bottles
Glacce is perfect for your woo friend (like me), who keeps their crystals close! They’ve created a line of straws and water bottles that infuse the crystal of your choice so you can enjoy their energetic benefits while you sip through the day!
Plus, they’re stunning and instantly elevate the water drinking experience- making you or your recipient reach for the glass more. 🙂
We’re Not Really Strangers card game
I’m. obsessed. We’re Not Really Strangers is a purpose driven card game and movement all about empowering meaningful connections. Three carefully crafted levels of questions and wildcards that allow you to deepen your existing relationships and create new ones.
The perfect smaller gift to give a loved one- it is a great party game or even to bond with a bestie over Zoom with a glass of wine. You can never go wrong with gifting love and connection. 🙂
Come on… Is there a gift better than a nice candle? It is the MOST adaptable gift, perfect for who you know super well or are maybe just becoming acquainted with.
I love Boy Smells – they have a 50-hour burning time, and are made of a coconut and beeswax blend with braided cotton wick, so you’re only gifting your bestie something safe to inhale. They also have extremely varied scent variations, so no matter the preferences, there is a smell for everyone.
My personal recommendation is Hinoki Fantome and Slow Burn. 🙂
An Earthlove box!
Basically, Earthlove is a gorgeous, expertly curated box of sustainable brands and goodies to help your recipient live a more sustainable lifestyle! You can order a subscription for your recipient, or send them a one-time box. The boxes include 6-8 items spanning different categories like healthy snacks, tea, botanical wellness, apothecary, aromatherapy, vegan body care, gardening, home decor, apparel, accessories, and more! It also includes a magazine with tips and eco-challenges for the season, and a portion of each sale supports a different environmental non-profit. They also include an entirely vegan option, for your friends who that applies to. 🙂
