Top 5 Gift Ideas (for the nutrition nerd)

Today I am sharing some gift ideas for that person in your life who loves all things wellness + nutrition. I personally love gift guides and I also get asked for gift ideas by those looking to buy a present for someone who is interested in nutrition. So, I thought I would write a blog post outlining some of my faves!

Here are my top 5 gift ideas:

Nutrition Books

Is gut health their thing? What about general healthy living? Nutrition books are often a good choice. Here are some good ones (definitely more on the nerdy side)

How Not to Die by Michael Greger
The Gut Balance Revolution by Gerrard E Mullin
The Allergy Solution by Leo Galland
The Whole Heart Solution by Joel Kahn
Brain Maker BY Dr. David Perlmutter
A Mind of Your Own Dr. Kelly Brogan

Healthy Cookbooks

You don’t have to be a nutrition nerd to love healthy whole foods. You can find healthy cookbooks abundantly, which makes me very happy. Some great cookbooks include: 

My New Roots by Sarah Britton
Oh She Glows by Angela Liddon
Small Victories by Julia Turshen and Ina Garten
At Home in the Whole Food Kitchen by Amy Chaplin
26 Grains by Alex Hely-Hutchison
Everyday Super Food By Jamie Oliver 


Organic Delivery Service

I think a vegetable delivery service or CSA is a really great present. I have bought these for meany health-focused friends and family members in the past. In Toronto you can choose from Fresh City Farms, Mama Earth Organics, Organic Live and local CSA’s.

Gift Certificates

A gift certificate for a healthy cooking class, health food store, healthy restaurant or a nutrition service, all make great gifts. Some options that I know of are Whole Foods, Noah’s Natural Foods, The Big Carrot, Doug Mcnish’s Public Kitchen and most healthy restaurants. You can also buy a certificate for my nutrition services here.

A Speciality Curated Basket

You can either make this yourself with artisanal health food products, or you can go through a basket delivery service. In Toronto, Jule’s Baskets offers carefully curated health-focused gift boxes, which are sure to please!


I hope you enjoy this list of ideas for holiday gifts! Please let me know what you think, and let me know if you buy your loved ones any of these options!
