Holiday Gift Guide 2019


No more socks, undies or ties! There’s no need to buy another boring present this Christmas when there are so many unique, useful and well.. awesome gifts you can give! Here are our absolute favorites in this year’s Holiday Gift Guide!

Happy shopping and Merry Christmas!

1. Whirly Board

The only balance board you’ll ever need! I’m high key obsessed with the Whirly Board.. it’s not only incredibly useful (in numerous ways), it’s also just a lot of fun! The design is basically the top of a skateboard with half sphere balance balls underneath. Find your balance. Pretend you’re surfing. Partake in balance competitions with your friends. In addition to the pure fun, there are many other great benefits. I personally love using the Whirly Board at a stand up desk to improve balance and core muscles! It’s also a great tool for assisting with rehabilitation to ankle and knee injuries. Perfect for anyone on your Christmas list! Click here to buy!

2. Sound Oasis’ illumy – The Smart Sleep Mask

Sound Oasis’ illumy – The Smart Sleep Mask is the undisputed King of Sleep Masks! This baby does it all. This mask is so smart, it provides light cues to help you fall asleep and wake you up (at your appointed time) which are the same tones NASA has used to help regulate sleep on the space station. In other words, you get your own personal sunset and sunrise with this mask which also blocks out all natural light! If you feel like you don’t get “good sleep”, the illumy is for you and it’s – pun intended – a dream!
