With December in full swing (where does the time go?), we’ve been getting so many ideas for items that don’t just make great gifts, but truly give to the recipient. These kind of special gifts offer you an extra layer of "doing good" by giving something to your loved ones that they'll not only enjoy, but can genuinely improve the quality of their life, too. So in place of our regular monthly Luminberry Loves feature, here are some of the wellness items that have caught our eye for gifting (…and may even make it onto our own wish lists, too)!

Lazarus Naturals CBD Gift Box
Containing a Lavender-scented CBD Balm, a Chocolate-Mint CBD tincture, and an Unscented CBD Massage Oil, this curated full-spectrum CBD gift box ($50.00) is perfect for the person who could use a little more well-deserved rest and relaxation in their life.
Smart Plants - New Book!
Perfect for the wellness-seeker looking to gain an extra edge in 2020! In Smart Plants ($29.95), Julie Morris (culinary director at Luminberry and NYT bestselling author) advocates the importance of cognitive wellness and its relationship to diet as the new frontier for self-improvement. Learn how to optimize brain performance using the world’s most powerful plants (and enjoy them in 65 vibrant recipes). Plus, click here to get a bonus free gift from Luminberry when you pre-order this book.
Note: The official book release for this title is December 31, but online pre-orders will begin to ship around the second week of December.
Wooden Garden Trug
For the gardener, there is little that yields more pride than a harvest of fresh produce, herbs, or decorative foliage straight from a personal plot of land. A well-made garden basket to collect these "fruits of labor" can last a lifetime, and this well made Wooden Garden Trug ($65.00) will make the practice of gathering extra joyous.
Minna Stripe Apron
Can you ever have too many aprons? If you enjoy cooking, that’s a hard "NO." We’re pretty smitten with the natural handwoven Minna Stripe Apron ($125.00), made by artisan weavers in Zinacantán, Mexico, which would make a great gift for the special cook in your life. (The beautiful potholders and linens on Minna's site would make great host gifts as well.)
Bamboozle Compost Bin
Inspire your loved ones to reduce waste and improve soil quality with a compost bin ($42.00) that looks so good, they'll actually want to have it out on the counter. Great for food scraps and organic waste, it's also made from sustainably-harvested bamboo, so it's good for the environment from the get-go.
Luminberry Cooking Courses
Give the gift of healthy knowledge and a unique culinary experience with one of Luminberry's online superfood cooking courses ($19.99). With courses ranging from how to make superfood chocolate from scratch, to learning the basics behind brain-boosting nootropics, there's a course for all kinds of wellness-oriented culinary adventures using the best foods on the planet. And if you'd like something physical to put under the tree, just email us after purchasing at info [at] luminberry.com and we'll send you a PDF gift certificate that you can print out.
Breville Super Q Blender
Truth: We used to swear by a different blender… that is, until we tried the Breville Super Q Blender ($499.95) about a year ago. Now it earns the top spot of easily becoming the best blender we’ve ever used. Quiet, efficient, easy to clean (and available in gorgeous new modern colors), this high-speed blender will make healthy cooking more enjoyable than ever, and will motivate better meal choices.
LOLI Go Glow Kit
Superfood skincare is not only a thing, it's a thing garnering rave reviews. Revel in this detoxifying "Go Glow" bundle ($68.00) which features a matcha face mask, plum elixir, and rose hydrosol. Or curate your own beauty basket through LOLI's eco-friendly and nutrient-rich bodycare line.
