Holiday gift guide for the wellness junkie in your life
I truly don’t want anything for Christmas this year.
Never have I ever felt more blessed than I have right in this very moment: happily married, healthy, employed – the list goes on and on.
But since we know that gift-giving is a nicety recognized worldwide, I figured I’d create a list of all the totally non-essential, but nice-to-have, things that all wellness junkies would love.
You will never go back to your old headphones ever again. I pinky promise.
