Air Fryer

Health-Conscious & Eco-Conscious Gift

I was a bit skeptical about this kitchen appliance. While certainly a healthier option—cooking food with little to no oil— than traditional cooking methods, I wasn’t sure about taste and texture. And while my Instagram research into some of my favorite recipe creators led me to Ninja brand , I had to try it for myself to believe it. So when my mom asked for a gift idea two years ago, this was it!

These days, the Ninja comes out almost weekly to bring us french fries, breakfast potatoes, air-fried tofu, impossible cheeseburger dumplings, impossible cheeseburger eggrolls, falafel, air-fried Brussels sprouts, air-fried eggplant, and more!

Bonus: Because of the quicker cooking time and the smaller size of an air fryer compared to the oven, it’s more energy efficient!

We personally love our Ninja Air Fryer so much that we have gifted it to other family members too. They carry a double air fryer, which may be our next move…

Dry Farm Wines

Eco-Conscious & Health-Conscious Gift

Have an eco-conscious wine lover in your life?! Have I got the gift idea for you!

All wine is not created equal, unfortunately. The FDA allows more than 70 additives to go into the winemaking process, including known toxic substances, sugar, coloring agents, and sulfites.

But natural wine is different because it is organically/biodynamically farmed without adding or removing anything. Read more about natural wines in my recent blog post.

I discovered Dry Farm Wines last year and have been a HUGE fan ever since…Dry Farm Wines curates pure natural wines from around the world. They lab test each wine using strict criteria focused on farming, purity, and taste (less than 0.01% of the world’s wines meet their standards).

Every bottle of Dry Farm Wines is pure, organic/biodynamic, dry farmed, sugar free, vegan, low sulfite, Keto-friendly, Paleo-friendly, low carb, free of toxic substances, and, from my experience enjoying over a dozen different wineries’ bottles, DELICIOUS.

My mom and I have gifted these wines to each other (and I have gifted some to myself too;)), and for my birthday this year I finally scored an ongoing membership (from my husband;))!

I am thrilled to partner with Dry Farm Wines to offer an extra bottle for a penny with your first order, plus free shipping! With their Happiness Guarantee you have nothing to lose! 

Whether you sign up for a subscription, or send a one time gift to a loved one or yourself, this wine club offers the ultimate flexibility.

Guilt-free wine consumption? Yup! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Instant Pot

Health-Conscious & Eco Conscious Kitchen Gifts

This kitchen gadget has become a kitchen staple in many homes over the past few years. It has been a GAME CHANGER for our family as it has literally made it possible to eat homemade, wholesome meals without having to be home to cook them! I spend 5-15 minutes prepping at my convenience, then set the timer and take off to soccer practice, playdates, or a hike with the dog. When we get home, dinner is ready.

An Instant Pot is a type of modern, safer pressure cooker that has other functions as well (like slow cooker, rice cooker, warmer, sterilizer, and more). Pressure cookers are more sustainable than the stove since less steam escapes from a pressure cooker than a saucepan. Pressure cookers can use up to 70% less energy.

My favorite Instant Pot recipe creator is Vegan Richa. We have tried dozens of her recipes…you really can’t go wrong! Some of our favorites are lasagna soup, lentil sloppy joe’s, chickpea coconut curry, and chana saag.

Reusable Kitchen Accessories

Eco-Conscious Gifts

These eco-friendly kitchen accessories make awesome conscious kitchen gifts (stocking stuffers?!) for the sustainably-minded people in your life!

Cloth Napkins

reusable napkins are one of the awesome conscious gifts for the kitchen

Reusable napkins are critical to eco-friendly everyday dining. Whether you have young kids or not, I recommend dark colored and patterned or striped cloth napkins to disguise stains and wrinkles. If your household is anything like mine, there is a load of laundry to run nearly every day, so throwing them in with an existing wash shouldn’t require extra loads.

Reusable Counter Towels

In addition to drying dishes, consider using reusable towels/sponges to clean up the counters. These Swedish dish towels are my favorite for cleaning surfaces. I generally use them twice before throwing them into the laundry, as they dry quickly after each use.

Reusable Lids

In addition to clean up, I used these silicon lids to cover leftovers in dishes that don’t have lids, instead of foil or plastic wrap. They are easy to clean and literally last for years!

Reusable Food Wrap

For covering produce, cheese, wrapping sandwiches and other refrigerated items, I like to use reusable food wrap instead of foil or plastic wrap.

Soda Stream

Have any sustainable-minded loved ones in your life who love sparkling water and still doesn’t own a Soda Stream? While La Croix is delicious, it requires recycling many cans…so why not make fresh bubbly water instead without the waste?

We use our Soda Stream daily, and the reusable bottles make it easy to take on the go. Plus, the fruit drops enable you to have all the variety of flavors you could ask for!
