Want a great idea for a dynamite stocking stuffer? Verso’s Super Facial Oil will fit the bill nicely. Developed specifically for sensitive skin, the oil will visibly firm and tighten the skin. In addition, it aids in reducing redness and irritation caused by external environmental stressors. It is fortified with hydrating sunflower and canola oils to prevent dry skin. A few drops in the morning and evening is all it takes to rejuvenate your skin.
Purple Royal Seat Cushion
It seems that many of us are spending a lot of time sitting. So, why not be as comfortable as possible as you slave away in front of your computer all day? Let Purple’s Royal Seat Cushion relieve your aching backside. Inside the seat cushion is the brand’s Purple Grid which cushions your tailbone and bottom with its air channel technology. Also, it’s made from a “temperature-neutral material” so you won’t ever suffer from a clammy seat regardless of how long you’ve been sitting.
The Sill Fiddle Leaf Fig
Who doesn’t love receiving a live plant to grace their living or work area? Studies show that indoor plants help remove toxins and indoor pollutants from the air, not to mention adding color and bringing a cheery atmosphere to any space. A Fiddle Leaf Fig, provided by The Sill, is a low-maintenance plant that will flourish in medium to low light. It’s delivered in a beautiful ceramic planter, and needs to be watered only every two to three weeks.
Golde Matcha Turmeric Superfood Latte Blend
Introduce someone you love to the benefits of Golde’s Matcha Turmeric Superfood Latte Blend.

Simply mix it with either hot water or your favorite milk and you’ve got a superfood-powered, vegan friendly, tasty drink to savor.
Ikuko by Bluecony Meditation Bench
For the person on your gift list who practices meditation, the IKUKO Meditation Bench would be a welcome gift. The bench is handmade in Canada with wild cherrywood and has a curved seat to provide enhanced comfort. It is available in three different sizes, based on the height of the user. The Meditation Bench enables one to sit in a more natural and comfortable position than sitting on the floor, greatly enhancing the meditation experience.
Supergoop! Handscreen Sunscreen
While we use sunscreen to protect our face, we don’t automatically think about using it on our hands. However, our hands bear the brunt of the sun just as much, if not more, than any other part of our bodies. Supergoop! makes a broad-spectrum SPF 40 sunscreen with fancy ingredients that nurture our hands — like Sea Buckthorn Fruit Extract, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, and Argan Oil — all the while protecting them from the sun’s harmful rays.
For the chef in your life that currently relies on that ages-old blender to make smoothies, soups, and sauces, receiving a Vitamix ONE would thrill them to no end. This is a budget-friendly mid-sized blender that is easy to use and looks great sitting out on the counter. Weighing in at just over six pounds, the ONE comes with a 32-ounce container — more than enough to blend that breakfast smoothie!
“Get fit while you sit” is the tagline associated with the incredibly popular Cubii elliptical. Users can set up the Cubii JR1 under a desk, coffee table, or in front of their favorite chair and pedal to their heart’s content while working, reading, or watching TV. Sporting a sleek and compact design, the Cubii JR1 features an easy-to-read LCD monitor that shows your progress as you pedal. A great gift for the person who prefers not to leave home to exercise.
