This is a sleek addition to the fitness wearables line. With Garmin’s introduction of the Vivosport, we get built-in GPS, effort monitoring tools like VO2 Max and all-day stress tracking.
I’ve always been a big fan of Garmin sports watches and heart-rate monitors for reliability and long wear. I absolutely love the super-slim design of this new model. Hmmm … might be time for an update!
When we’re running tight on time and can’t get to the gym or are traveling, resistance band sets are the next best thing. I can’t tell you how many times these have been my go-to on a busy day.
This set from Fitness Insanity is awesome. You get just about every variation in one kit. And it packs up nicely in it’s own travel/storage bag. Resistance bands are also great for beginners who want to make strength training a part of their routine.
I ordered three pairs and wear them to the gym regularly. Super comfy, true to fit, not see-through (Lord knows, we don’t want that, ladies!), and totally washer/dryer friendly. With this price point and tons of designs, there’s nothing not to like.
For the price point of only $30 bucks, these wireless headphones are amazing. Great sound, sweat proof, they stay in place and don’t bounce around when running or working out. Plus, they have a built-in microphone for incoming calls. Pretty cool and seriously economical. An added bonus: they come with a lifetime warranty in case they are ever damaged by sweat.
For those of you who are still in love with paper planners (that’s me!), this one is a perennial favorite. The Passion Planner not only give you ample space for daily tasks, but also leaves sections for weekly focus areas. It’s beautifully designed and organized and filled with inspirational quotes and “Good Things That Happened” sections to encourage year-round gratitude and celebration of your achievements.
These are great essential oils and very reasonably priced for this synergy blends gift set. What I love about Eden’s Garden oils is they are therapeutic grade. They’re made from plants treated with no pesticides, herbicides or GMO additives.
This set is appealing because you get a nice variety, especially if you’re new to essential oils. It comes with six 10 ml bottles. The blends are Anxiety Ease, Aphrodisiac, Breathe Easier, Meditation, Simply Citrus and Spring Garden.
This kit makes fermenting foods super simple and comes with all you’ll need to get started making your own probiotic rich veggies. The lids have built-in date trackers, and airlock valves keep the oxygen out and allow the carbon dioxide escape during the fermentation process. You get three jars and lids, an extractor pump to remove the air during the fermentation process and a recipe guide. Pretty cool and a great price point!
These very cool, heavy-duty BOOMbaby ceramic mugs remind us every day that aging is a gift and an opportunity to make the most of life. We inspire to achieve beyond our wildest dreams. And we do it with a determined attitude that says we’re not stopping yet! Dishwasher safe and extra-huge 20-ounce size for that stout cup o’ Joe to get the day started.
If the grand-dog is the apple of your eye or your own fur-baby loves a holiday surprise, then this assortment of organic, hand-baked, naturally sourced dog treats is a winner. Fido’s favorite flavors include peanut butter, pumpkins, carrots, maple & bacon, and bananas. The treats arrive in a super-cute bakery box perfect for gift giving.
This is a great game for everyone in the family, and especially fun to play with the kids and grandkids. In fact, I just gifted one to my son-in-law for his birthday. It’s sort of flying disc and cornhole all rolled into one game. Here, you aim to get the discs into the can for the score. Super fun, easy, portable, great for parties and picnics and a great year-round gift idea.
