Gifts are the ultimate expression of feelings, especially around holiday time. I created the first-ever Healthy Holiday Guide from TheWholeTara to help you find that perfect gift. This is the ideal list for someone who is into health, self-care, and, maybe, travel. I know firsthand how difficult gift-giving can be, so I hope this year’s gift guide gives you plenty ideas and all of the clarity you need to buy your loved one a special something for the holidays.
KIND Cube Variety Pack (20 bars) $40
This isn’t just any old box – it’s a KIND Cube. Filled with 20 tasty bars, the Cube makes a perfect present for any snack lover (including you!). Each of the Cube’s sides falls away to reveal your bars, making it easy to eat, share and enjoy. Made with delicious ingredients like nuts, fruit and dark chocolate, these bars are a gift that both your body and your taste buds will love to receive.
Staub Cast Iron Round Cocotte $119
The chef in your home is bound to love this cocotte, french for a covered, heatproof dish or casserole in which food can be both cooked and served. The pot is all-around beautiful and is known for its self-basting spikes on the lid that create a rain-forest effect evenly returning juices back onto the food. Mmmm.
Michael Aram Cheese Tray with Knife $202
Infuse any space with unique design with this Palm cheese board from Michael Aram. On a base of sleek white marble, this cheese board is finished with delicately carved woven palm leaf handles made from antique finished goldtone. Including a spreader with a woven palm leaf handle, the set is the perfect accompaniment to the cheese course and there are more exquisitely crafted items available in the Palm collection by top American designer Michael Aram.
Chef’s Foundry P600 Ceramic Chef’s Knife Set $276
I received these knives in the mail and have been very impressed at how easy they are to use. The P600 knives are considerably sharper and harder than steel. They slice through meat and vegetables like butter and you will never have to sharpen the ceramic knives (unlike stainless steel). All-around great gift for the chef in the family.
