Standard

Trying to keep your family on track during the holiday season? Have a family health nut? Buying for your favorite dietitian? We’ve rounded up a list of holiday gifts perfect for the health conscious, Paleoesque person on your list.91gvisfpcyl-_sl1500_

Kitchen Gadgets

Spiralizer: Who doesn’t love making zoodles or other fun veggie spirals? They make ’em in all shapes and sizes from this budget friendly version to a fancier one to an attachment for a Kitchenaid mixer (also a great item if you’re looking to splurge on someone who loves to bake).

71-ak79nv1l-_sl1500_Instant-Pot: This all-in-one kitchen gadget is great for both the busy home cook and the more adventurous kitchen creators. This particular model is a 7-in-1 Multi-Functional Cooker–Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Saute/Browning, Yogurt Maker, Steamer & Warmer.

Cookbooks: A few recommendations include Practical Paleo, Nom Nom Paleo, Against All Grain, and other Top Paleo Cookbooks on Amazon

Food Saver:  Eating healthy often means buying in bulk to lower costs, so a vacuum sealer is a great gift.

Novelty kitchen items make cooking fun! Check out this owl kitchen timer and olive oil sprayer.  I know I would love to get one of these nifty avocado huggers.

Food Containerslife-factory

Glass Waterbottle: We love Life Factory bottles that come in all different sizes and colors. They also make food containers and wine glasses!

Reusable Snack Bags or glass storage containers are great for the eco-conscious.

FOOD

Gift Basket: Either make up one yourself or buy a premade Paleo Gift Basket.  Ideas for 12509677_1041914339163133_4329125001892968906_nhomemade baskets include Paleo baking staples (coconut flour, almond flour, coconut oil, local honey, spices/seasonings), or Paleo snacks (nuts, fruit, bars, dairy-free dark chocolate). Make a batch of Paleo Christmas cookies, or try making homemade spice mixes, too!

Artisan oils and vinegar: O’Live a Little is a great local, small business in South Windsor and Canton, CT

Essential oils are a great gift too. Check out this article that shows how to combine oils in your diffuser to create holiday scents!

Stocking Stuffers

Dark Chocolate: Because who doesn’t love chocolate in their stocking? Paleo brands include Pur 7, Eating Evolved and Hu.

Snacks: Krave Jerky or Epic snacks are tasty jerky options. Lara bars. Single serve nut butters packs, like Justin’s, that can be found at Target. Nuts and dried fruit packed in festive jars spice up a basic snack.
