Here at HBFIT, we’re obsessed with Two Hands. Their nutritious, simple food and delicious drinks are so necessary for the holiday season, so we love the idea of getting a gift card for your friends. There’s nothing like the gift of grabbing brunch and photographing your matcha latte!
Do your loved ones a favor by buying them an an acupuncture appointment with the amazing Paige Bourassa in NYC. With our immune systems low during this time of the year, acupuncture can be a total game changer for your body.

For your friends that want nothing more than to cuddle up with a jar of peanut butter next to the fireplace, these natural nut butters are a healthy life saver. With delicious flavors like Almond Cocoa, Peanut Pecan, and Chai Spice, these handmade nut butters are so yummy, and are made from pure ingredients from local farms. The jars themselves are so cute, and nut-lover would appreciate them!
We tend to forget to drink enough water during the winter months, so SodaStream is a great gift to help your friends stay hydrated and healthy this season. SodaStream allows you to transform ordinary tap water into sparkling water, and you can also use it to make at-home cocktails and holiday beverages.
Juicero prides itself on delivering good health in a glass, and their juicers make for great holiday presents. With this juicer, you don’t have to spend $10 on cold-pressed juice at your local juice shop anymore. Make sure your friends are getting their greens in this season by getting them their own juicer. They can add their favorite produce, get all their nutrients in at home, and maybe even balance out some of those holiday sugar cookies.
We love this porcelain bowl set that came out with the Mud Australia collection with Goop. The pink color is unexpected and delicate, and makes for a great gift as a serving dish or just a few extra bowls to have around the kitchen. It comes in a set of four, so you can use the different sizes for various condiments and spices.
This handcrafted salt keeper is so chic and modern, and we love the olivewood for the holiday season. It’s beautiful, practical, and makes a great gift for anyone. You can even add a monogram to make it super personal for your friends.
We love the message on this sweatshirt, and it makes for an empowering gift for your friends. The best part is that 25% of the sweatshirt sale proceeds are donated to Planned Parenthood, so you’re giving to a great cause while getting your friend an awesome gift. Buy a few for your mom and sisters, too!
This book is another one of our favorites this year. Arianna Huffington, the co-founder and editor in chief of The Huffington Post, writes about the importance of sleep when it comes to redefining success through wellbeing and health. This book is a great gift for anyone who is stressed out at work or just needs an extra reminder about the importance of mental health and taking a break.
Buying your friend an inspirational book for the holidays is a great way to set an encouraging tone for the year ahead. Founder of Designer Sponge, Grace Bonney, wrote her own book with inspiration and advice from over 100 artists and entrepreneurs through interviews and portraits. The book is filled with empowering advice that will help you set goals for the new year, and we’re obsessed!
And of course we had to include a few guilty pleasures because if you can’t be naughty during the holidays, when can you be?
Okay, so this might not be a superfood or health staple, but it’s the holiday season! At HBFIT, we think it’s okay to treat yourself to a cocktail sometimes, and when we do, we choose Casa Dragones. Their small batch tequila made from pure agave so doesn’t have the extra sugar a lot of other tequila brands have. It’s soft and smooth, perfect for a holiday drink and the gorgeous bottles make for a great gift. You can even get them personalized with a message that will be hand-scripted by an expert calligrapher. Cheers to that!
If you’re anything like us and have a soft spot for the softest, warmest, most delicious cookies, you’ve got to check out Maman’s chocolate chip cookies.
