2016-holiday-gift-guide
Here are my favorite gifts for everyone on your list this year. Disclosure: I received free product samples in exchange for posting products to this page, however all opinions stated are my own and I do believe these items would make most excellent gifts!

for her

aromatherapy-bamboo-and-glass-essential-oil-diffuserFor someone who is into essential oils, the Bamboo and Glass Essential Oil Diffuser from ToiletTree Products would make a fabulous gift. Beyond adding an aroma to a room, essential oils provide many diverse benefits. Using a diffuser is an easy way to disperse them so that their scent can fill a room with the oil’s natural fragrance, without overpowering the senses. As an added bonus, it does not rely on harmful chemicals. The new Essential Oil Diffuser from ToiletTree Products boasts several unique features, including an extra-large water tank and automatic shut-off system. The 1,200 ml capacity water tank automatically turns off when the water level is too low, so users never have to worry about monitoring the water level. Everyone will love the color changing LED lighting – a rotation of soothing red, green and blue colors. Buy it. eatsmart-precision-elite-digital-kitchen-scaleThe EatSmart Precision Elite Digital Kitchen Scale makes a great gift for the baker in your life.Baking is a precise science, and when something doesn’t turn out right, the culprit is often a discrepancy in measuring. If you want to ensure that your baked goods are delicious, it’s critical to measure the ingredients, by weight, on a kitchen scale. This Elite Kitchen Scale means better results through accurate measurements and less mess to clean up. There’s no need for scoops, measuring cups and a leveling knife; you’ll save time and mess every time you bake. The Precision Elite is also perfect for everyday tasks from weighing food to monitoring caloric intake. Furthermore, its sleek, modern design fits perfectly in any kitchen. Buy it. nerium-eht

The NASA Life Tracker fitness band from Hammacher Schlemmer tracks ECG, heart rate, steps, natural light exposure, calories, and sleep.
