Here Are 8 Gifts for the Wellness Junkie
1. Crushed Tonic - Marine Collagen
Your health-obsessed loved ones deserve products that work overtime to support their wellbeing – especially after they’ve worked so hard throughout yet another stress-inducing year. Crushed Tonic Marine Collagen is not only crazy delicious, it also helps increase the feeling of hydration and firmness in skin, while visibly reducing wrinkles and making hair look extra strong and thick. An absolute must-have if you like looking and feeling your best.
Crushed Tonic sustainably sources their collagen from fish skin that would otherwise be discarded during processing. But that doesn’t mean their organic blends taste fishy. The coffee and matcha crush flavors blend seamlessly into your caffeine fix of choice. Açaí and turmeric flavors pack a superfood punch of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory benefits when blended into a smoothie, bowl or elixir. Their original blend is flavored with lucuma, a unique fruit with a rich, caramel flavor that delivers satisfying sweetness that won’t cause a spike in blood sugar – perfect in a nut milk latte or even holiday baking.
2. Ora Organic - Aloe Gorgeous Vegan Collagen Powder
For the vegans in your life who’ve seriously earned some rejuvenation from the inside out, Ora Organic Aloe Gorgeous Collagen Booster delivers plant-based super ingredients that support the body’s own collagen production processes.
The blend is made with polysaccharides from aloe vera (aka your favorite all-natural sunburn remedy), which have been shown to support collagen and pea protein that’s high in lysine, an amino acid essential to collagen production. Naturally derived vitamin E is sourced from sunflowers, while vitamin C from acerola cherry isn't just an essential precursor to collagen production but also delivers a dose of protective antioxidants.
Aloe Gorgeous comes in chocolate and vanilla flavors, the perfect addition to a morning smoothie or mug of post-skating cocoa. In addition to being vegan, all Ora Organic products are gluten-free, soy-free, and dairy-free.
3. Little Apple Treats - Award Winning Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
After almost two years stuck at home, at least one of your loved ones has probably become a fermentation fanatic, complete with a sourdough starter named Greg and a home-brewed kombucha shelf in the fridge. So add this apple cider vinegar from Little Apple Treats to the mix.
Little Apple Treats is helmed by husband and wife duo Joanne and Dan. The pair handcraft exceptionally high-quality vinegar packed with freshly pressed organic apples picked from their orchard in Sonoma County. Their products have consistently won culinary awards since 2015, and this vinegar won a Good Food Award in 2019.
This vinegar boasts probiotics, which naturally develop through the fermentation process to support gut flora. The result? One very happy digestive tract, which means a greater feeling of vitality accompanied by bonus benefits like glowing skin and hair. It’s packaged like fine wine in a glass bottle with a cork to make anyone on your list feel that much more special.
4. Ora Organic - Trust Your Gut Vegan Prebiotic & Probiotic Capsules
The season's sugary treats and boozy nogs mean our digestive tracts and intestinal flora take a major hit. But probiotics make for a great stocking-stuffer your loved ones can add to their everyday wellness rituals to support long-term health and resilience.
Trust Your Gut probiotic capsules are vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, and non-GMO. Each capsule contains 16 billion probiotics made up of six powerhouse strains, plus a prebiotic called inulin, a type of fiber derived from organic Jerusalem artichokes that helps the probiotics thrive in the gut.
For probiotics to do their job in the body, they need to make it through the acid gauntlet in the stomach. Ora Organic has selected strains with the highest acid resistance like B. bifidum, so that they can offer a full range of wellness-boosting benefits like immune support, enhanced digestion, and anti-inflammatory properties.

5. Manni Oil - The Oil of Life 2020: Organic Extra- Virgin Olive Oil from Tuscany
2020 saw the best olive harvest in Tuscany in 15 years, and you can still grab a bottle of this superior grade extra-virgin olive oil from MANNI – the perfect gift for the gourmet chef, foodie or wellness fanatic in your life who loves nutrient-packed ingredients that deeply nourish the body.
This oil is more than just a salad dressing. It’s a plant-powered elixir meticulously crafted from a single variety of olive grown in the rich volcanic soil of Mount Amiata. Rich in antioxidants (and 30 percent more than the European Food Safety Authority’s recommended dose of hydroxytyrosol and its derivatives), olive oil never tasted so good (or contributed quite so much to glowy skin!)
With a potent, herbaceous flavor, this oil can be enjoyed neat or drizzled over your favorite salads, fruit, cheese, ice cream, roasted vegetables, and more. It’s not recommended for cooking, as heat may destroy the potent antioxidants.
The custom crafted black bottle unique to this brand, provides 99.99 percent UV ray resistance to prevent oil degradation. The limited-edition “Love” cap makes this bottle a beautiful countertop reminder to pause and think about what really matters.
6. Ora Organic - Sol Food Vitamin D3
Midwinter is when our natural vitamin D supply runs low. In the US 41.6 percent of adults are deficient in vitamin D, and folks with more melanin in their skin actually synthesize the vitamin at a slower rate, leading to a higher risk of deficiency.
Who wouldn’t want to open up a box of bottled sunshine this holiday season?
Unlike your grocery-variety vitamin D3 supplements, which are synthesized from the lanolin oil in sheep wool, Sol Food’s D3 is sustainably sourced from non-GMO lichen. (Fun fact: lichens are actually two organisms, fungi and algae, in a symbiotic relationship. They produce their own vitamin D to protect themselves from damaging UV rays.)
Each tablet has 2,000 IU of vitamin D3 (the maximum recommended dose is 4000 IU) and contains organic sunflower lecithin to enhance absorption, making it a super easy pill to swallow for essential health benefits like immune support and an overall sense of well being – no sun required.
7. Ora Organic - Well-Wishes Immune Support Supplement
There’s no better way to show someone you care than showing up for them when they’re sick. But gifting a bottle of immune-fortifying goodness to protect them against getting sick in the first place may just top that!
Packed with organic, non-GMO ingredients, Well-Wishes isn’t your average immune support supplement. Vitamin C heroes elderberry and acerola cherry join forces with traditional remedies like garlic, ginger, and echinacea. For extra efficacy, Ora Organic has even added some fungi friends: antioxidant-rich Chaga and astragalus, commonly used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to give a sense of strengthened qi.
These capsules are great for regular immune maintenance and as a last defense when you’re starting to feel a little tickle in your throat.
8. Ora Organic - Easy Being Green Superfood Greens Powder
The health nut in your life lives for the opportunity to get their greens in, and Easy Being Green powder is an effortless way to incorporate high-nutrient greens into any meal of the day. Flavored naturally with lemon and orange, the mix goes straight into a glass of iced water or morning smoothie to create a delicious treat that’s as healthy as it is refreshing. Gifting tip: this blend tastes so good that even picky kids love it, making it perfect for the busy parents in your life.
Ora Organic has rounded up over 20 USDA-certified organic superfoods, veggies, herbs, and algae and packed them into this blend to provide body-boosting benefits like enhanced digestion. With the addition of adaptogenic herbs triphala and ashwagandha, this greens mix promotes resilience, decreases fatigue, curbs stress, and delivers powerful antioxidants to tired tissues. Help your loved ones recover from the season’s indulgences the nutritious way with the goodness of greens in a glass.
