It’s that wonderful time of the year again and the teachers have compiled recommendations for unique and interesting gifts for 2022. For your convenience, many of the suggestions link directly to our Amazon store or directly to the merchant’s site. Don’t forget that Pure Pilates gift cards are available year-round and this season we are offering 2 Holiday Promotions, discounting our services.
My son, Robert has just moved into his first apartment after college and loves to cook when he can find the time. These gifts are great for any of the cooks in your life.
The hydroponics garden allows you to have fresh herbs year round without a lot of fuss or a window with adequate light.
Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking by Samin Nosrat is the perfect cookbook to grab new ideas and teach the important basics for cooking. It’s also a great documentary on Netflix.
Dario Cecchini Herb Salt Blend is one of my favorites. It’s great on meat or mixed in olive oil as a dip for bread or vegetables.
The Oxo Good Grips 3-in-1 Avocado Slicer is the perfect gift for someone who loves avocado toast! The plastic blade smoothly cuts through avocado skin but isn’t sharp to the touch. The pitting tool quickly removes pits with a simple twist. The fan blade cuts fruit into perfect slices and scoops them out for serving.
The Universal in Flight Airplane Phone Holder Mount is a pocket size phone holder that is an essential accessory for flying. The strong clamp mounts your phone to a table, luggage handle or any object up to 1.5 inch wide. It has dual joints with 360 degrees of rotation that gives you flexibility for the best viewing angle — vertically or horizontally.
Auric Plush Ritual Ceramide Lip Treatment is a luxurious treatment for lips that delivers intense moisture night or day. The formula is enhanced with rich ceramides and French lupin seed, which helps to stimulate synthesis of collagen, working to improve skin’s elasticity and firmness. Includes a jade spatula.
Wake up tired eyes with Bliss Eye Masks. I pack them on long flights and pop them on before I sleep or just before I land.
I’ve been following Jesse and his candle company Virgins on Fire on social media. When Roe vs Wade was overturned, he was selling a candle where a $5 donation for each candle purchase went to Planned Parenthood. I bought a dozen and shared them with women in my life. Jesse is from New Jersey, I love his humor and the quality candles have interesting scents.
I received a creativity kit from The Blossom Bar this year and I think this is a perfect gift if you are looking for something unique for the creative person in your life. It includes aromatherapy and other items to spark your creativity.
I am all about Neuro-movement and I encourage my clients to play brain games outside of the studio. My mentor and friend, Trent McEntire has created 3 levels of games with his letterball. If you have a child, senior, or athlete on your holiday list, Fire Up your Brain gives you a letter ball and appropriate games to play at all levels.
As the weather turns cold, I enjoy the classic Manhattan cocktail. Woodford Reserve Bourbon Cherries are the perfect garnish for most bourbon, rye or whiskey cocktails.
This shower mist from European Spa Source is an amazing present for someone or for yourself. A couple of sprays and it transforms your whole shower experience into a spa. Nice way to wake up or even finish your day!
These are our favorite wine glasses- a beautiful gift for any wine drinker. The Schott Zwiesel glasses are heavy and beautiful but are reasonable enough to easily add more glasses to your collection or replace if needed.
If you need a Holiday gift for a child, I love this story of Red and Lulu, two birds who live in the Rockefeller Christmas Tree. A beautiful holiday book, especially for any little one who lives in the tri-state area and has the tradition of going to see “the tree”.
