2020 Women's Holiday Gift Guide + HUGE Giveaway

My 2020 women's holiday gift guide features brands  and products that I love. It has a healthy and active theme. Lots of workout clothes, kitchen items and of course, coffee because I wouldn't be anywhere without my coffee! I hope you love it. 

I am SO excited to host the biggest giveaway that I've ever done with prizes from: NOW Foods, Baleaf athletic clothes, Coffee Over Cardio, Vie Active workout clothes, Kyocera ceramic knives and a TrailHeads hat.

woman wearing YogaClub Workout Clothes


I am obsessed with YogaClub which is a subscription service for yoga and workout clothes. You put lots of preferences in like if you like capri leggings or long, long sleeved shirts or tank tops, etc. You rate lots of different outfits so that they can get an idea of what you like and then they send you an outfit. 

I received these leggings, bra and tank. Look at the back of the bra and tank. It is so cute! Everything is good quality and I received great brands such as Onzie. The cost of the subscription is $79 per month and would make a great gift for the yoga lover in your life.

Liverpool Jeans

My very favorite jeans in the world are the jeans from Liverpool. Their pull-on jeans are amazing and literally never stretch out like all of my other jeans do. I have owned them for 2 years now, wear them all the time and they are still in absolutely perfect condition. They look and feel like real jeans but are buttery soft, have more stretch and pull-on. My favorite is the Sienna Pull-on and I like the Gia Glider as well. For the guys in your life, my husband loves the modern slim straight variety. 

Baleaf Leggings

Isn't every woman on the search for the best comfy leggings that look great, feel great and are affordable. I am always on the lookout for the best leggings and truly love the ones from Baleaf. They are supposed to be for workouts but I also love them for everyday wear. I am work-from-home mom of 3 and we are always moving so wearing something comfortable that I feel good in is important to me. 

The leggings are nice and thick and have a comfortable high-rise waistband. I also really like their bike shorts, joggers and the jacket that I'm wearing. Everything runs from about $19-28 which is very affordable. They have a zillion great ratings on Amazon which is what intrigued me about the company and I am really enjoying them.

NOW Foods Essential Oils

If you are an essential oil lover, you are going to want to check out the diffusers from NOW Foods and their essential oils. They have holiday scents like Woodland Walk and Candy Cane that are great to get your home smelling like the holidays. I also love these products from NOW Foods: mango bites, cashew butter, roasted almonds and cashews, supplements like probiotics, omega-3 and multivitamins, lotions and kid's vitamins. Many of these would make stocking stuffers!  

Also, the nuts would make a great hostess gift. I would make them into a fun nut mix or make candied nuts and gift them in a mason jar with a pretty holiday ribbon. I've been working with NOW Foods all year as an ambassador and I truly love their products and highly recommend them.

Kidizen Mama Clothes

Do you ever shop second-hand? I love shopping second-hand for my kids and recently found a great site that sells second hand clothes for both kids and moms! It is called Kidizen and I got these super cute booties from there for only $15 and some other cute shoes. It is super easy to navigate. You can search by brand, size, category and more. I wanted slip-on tennis shoes and there were so many to choose from in my size. I had a ton of fun shopping the site and would definitely buy from here for people for the holidays. Lots of items were new with tags also!

Kyocera Ceramic Knives

I fell in love with Kyocera knives maybe 5 years ago and have used them since. They are made of ceramic and are super sharp. I'm loving these new black knives which are amazing because the white ones tend to get stained more easily so these will be easier to clean. They are incredibly sharp and feel like you're barely putting in any effort to cut into something. They are also really lightweight and easy to hold. They would make an awesome gift for the cook in your life.

Contigo Water Bottles and Coffee Mugs

Contigo is a brand that makes it to my gift guide every single year and for good reason: I use Contigo products all day long! I have a Contigo water bottle by my side 24/7 because I drink a ton of water and they are the best. My favorite is the ones with the straw. I also exclusively use their coffee mugs and they are amazing because they keep my drinks hot and never, ever spill. I'm obsessed! I've had one of their marble design ones for a year now and it is still in near-perfect condition after daily use. Just don't put them in the dishwasher to keep them looking great. My husband loves the camo one! I highly recommend anything Contigo for gifts and my kids love the kid-versions.

PEARL iZUMi Cycling Gear

I have gotten really into biking and it helps to have the right gear. PEARL iZUMi has all of the gear you could ever need for biking. My favorite item of theirs is their padded bike shorts which changed biking for me. I went from having pain biking to being able to bike as far as I want to. They are amazing. 

Now, it is cold in Michigan and I am loving their jackets (this BioViz barrier jacket is great- look at that fun color!), hats and gloves which make it so much more comfortable to bike in the cold. Just because it is cold outside doesn't mean that I am going to stay inside for the next 6 months. I need to get out and PEARL iZUMi makes it so easy to go biking anytime. Anything from this brand would be great for the cycler in your life.

Swiftwick Socks

My favorite socks for running are Swiftwick socks. I also wear them for daily use. They look great after many washes, are warm and cozy and best of all, never fall off. They are plush and have quite a bit of cushion in them which is important to me because I have foot pain at times. They are moisture wicking and I find myself grabbing these from my sock drawer often. They would make a great stocking stuffer. My husband loves the men's ones as well for running and daily wear.

TrailHeads Running Gear

Running in the winter in Michigan is not warm! You need good gear that keeps you warm on cold days. In early November, the morning temperatures have been about 30-40 degrees which requires hats and gloves and I love the gear from TrailHeads. It is really good quality, wicks sweat well and is comfortable on. Nothing is worse when running than when your gear is falling off, itchy, etc. 

The quilted running mittens are super warm and are long so that they can tuck under your jacket sleeves. No bare wrists here! I also really like the women's running headband which has reflectors on it which is important since I run in the dark. It covers more of your head than a typical headband and has a spot for your ponytail. I think this is good for about 35-45 degrees. In colder weather, I like a thin fleece-lined hat from TrailHeads.

Vie Active Workout Clothes

You know that I am obsessed with workout clothes and wear them all the time even outside of working out and these leggings from Vie Active are so comfortable and stylish. The blush leggings are my favorite because they are unique and different than other leggings I have. The bras are great for workouts and the back of them is just too cute.

Brandless Bundles

For the practical person in your life who has everything, buy a bundle from Brandless. These bundles are such a great value and come with every product you could need. I love the comeback bundle which has 41 Brandless products for $100 (a $260 value!). It comes with all kinds of things like body wash, face wash, lotion, toothpaste, body scrub, lip balm, night cream, essential oils and much more. It makes a great gift basket for the person in your life who doesn't like a lot of presents. These are things that they can truly use. I am a fan of every product that I've tried so far.

Coffee Over Cardio

Troy and I are totally crazy about coffee and this coffee from Coffee Over Cardio is so good! First of all, I love the packaging which is part of what makes it a good gift. Second of all, they have some great varieties. If you love flavored coffee, this company has lots of good ones. I enjoyed this vanilla hazelnut but mostly stick to darker roasts. The Bonjour French roast is my favorite. Pair these with a cute coffee mug and a couple other things for a fun Christmas gift for the coffee lover in your life.


The giveaway will be for 3 pairs of Baleaf joggers (to 3 winners), a $150 NOW Foods gift card, 1 bag of Coffee Over Cardio coffee + 2 Hydrate drinks, a pair of Vie Active leggings, a 2 pack of Kyocera ceramic knives and a TrailHeads trucker hat to one lucky winner.
