Healthy Gifts and Stocking Stuffers

Christmas StockingsAs I was thinking about living in a Culture of Health for the holiday season, I wondered what I could do to make your life less stressful and more peaceful in this busy season.

Then up popped an idea!

What if I helped you with your shopping?  What if I found healthy stocking stuffer ideas so we can move away from overloading with sweets, especially for our little ones whose small bodies suffer more from the sugar overload?

What if you could conveniently order them online and avoid the shopping crowds?

So I set out to see what I could find. It took a significant amount of time to locate these healthy items but it was well worth it to me if it frees up your time so you can enjoy the true meaning of the season, the celebration of the arrival of the Prince of Peace on earth.

Since these items are small, to keep the shipping costs low for you I found them all on Amazon. Hopefully you will be able to order multiple items for one shipping cost. Please remember that prices may change frequently on Amazon so consider the prices included on this page as an estimate.

Disclosure: If you purchase these gifts from the links below I may receive a small amount of remuneration from Amazon. These funds are used to defray the costs of keeping up this web site and producing and emailing my newsletter Be Wise-Health Wise. Thanks so much for helping out!

 When I started finding these items I wanted to try them all, especially the Zhena teas. They sound yummy and promote health.

I thought about the gifts that I’ve received over the last few years that have helped me a lot in the kitchen. So I have listed a few healthy gift ideas followed by the stocking stuffers.

These ideas come to you a bit early for those of you who love to shop for the deals on Black Friday!

Have fun shopping,

Dr. Jo

Contigo Astor 2-pack 14 oz Vacuum-Insulated Autoseal Travel Tumblers

Contigo Travel MugWe love these insulated stainless steel travel mugs because:

They do not leak.  We confidently throw them into a pack and know it will stay dry.

With these stainless steel mugs we avoid plastic water bottles and hot drink containers tha t seep residues of plastic into our beverages.

They keep beverages cold for up to 14 hours and hot for up to 5 hours.


I love my red Contigo Stainless Steel  Travel Mug for making healthy tea. Previously my tea always got cold before I finished drinking it since I am a tea sipper instead of a tea guzzler. Now I bring water to a boil in my tea pot, pour it over the tea bag in my Contigo Mug and let it steep a few minutes with the lid on.


After removing the tea bag and replacing the lid the tea is way too hot to sip from the mug right away. So I pour a little of the tea into a ceramic mug and sip it at the right temperature. Eventually I sip right from the mug.My Contigo mug has increased my pleasure in drinking healthy teas like Rooibus, green tea, peppermint tea and other healthy tea mixes.


Have you tried Celestial Seasoning’s seasonal tea called Sweet Harvest Pumpkin? M-m-m good.  But watch out – it contains caffeine so maybe drink only 1 cup early in the day!
