Gift ideas for the body, mind and soul

Holiday Gift Guide by Aisling 2017.png

I love the Christmas season as it lights up the darkest and possibly the coldest time of the year. During this season of goodwill and cheer people tune into the high Solstice energy that prompts an opening of hearts and desire to gift our loved ones. This time however does not come without its stress, wondering what to get for whom and whether or not they will like it. So this year I am compiling a list to help you give the gift that makes a difference.

1) Kate Northrup’s Money, a Love Story: Untangle Your Financial Woes And Create The Life You Really Want This book helps you to write a new story with your money. Kate teaches how money is all to do with your personal power and self value. It shows how to create a healthy relationship with your money so you can create abundance and financial freedom to live the life you want.

2) Gabrielle Bernstein’s Judgement Detox. Release the Beliefs That Hold You Back from Living a Better Life. This is a guide to healing your relationship with judgement that can prevent us from fully participating in our relationships. Based on The Course of Miracles, this book is a six step approach to releasing judgement and resentment. This is essential to raising your consciousness and to attract new opportunities to create the life of your dreams.

3) Bringing Death to Life by Patricia Scanlan, Dr Mary Helen Hensley, Aidan Storey and Pamela Young. I had the pleasure of meeting Mary Helen Hensley at an event this year and her story healed me in so many ways after losing my dear Mum this year. I highly recommend this book for anyone who has lost a loved one or has a fear of death. This is a game changer.

4) Jonathan Acuff’s Finish: Give Yourself the Gift of Done. This book outlines the reasons why 92% of New Year’s resolutions fail and what you can do about it. Learn about how fun and taking the pressure can be more helpful to you achieving your goals. This is a must read for those who find it easy to start things but who fail to finish. This book will make you feel alive with new possibilities.

5)  Medical Medium’s Liver Rescue is the ultimate guide to reclaiming your health. This book is one of my go to resources for making health choices both for myself and my clients.

6)  I love Dr Bronner's products. They are so gentle on the skin. They're made from organic ingredients with perfectly blended essential oils. Choose from either the soaps or the liquid soaps.

7)  Skin can feel dry and taut from indoor heating. Dr Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream Light is ideal for dry or sensitive skin. It is super hydrating and you only need to use a little to cover your skin. 

8)  I recommend Dr Hauschka’s foundation as it only uses organic natural ingredients and does not use animal testing. It blends really well and doesn’t cake. I find that it lasts all day and gives incredible coverage. 

9) Treat yourself to a homemade face mask made from Bentonite clay over the holidays. This is amazing to make your skin feel so fresh and soft. Bentonite clay draws out toxins from the skin making it deeply cleansed like you had a facial. This is wonderful value for money as the container lasts for ages.

10) Christmas is not Christmas without the customary pjs and slippers. I love the North Face slippers that are like a puffa jacket for your feet. If you are like me you love your feet to be cosy and warm, these North Face slippers are quite a treat.

11) If you have not already invested in a rebounder then think about getting one this year as it really makes a difference to fitness and tone. I recommend the Fit Bounce Pro as it’s durable, of high quality and doesn’t make any squeaky springy noises. Rebounding benefits have been recognised by NASA. It is so easy to exercise using the Fit Bounce Pro during the cold winter months when you feel more like cocooning than exercising.

I hope you choose the best gifts for you and your loved ones. Have a wonderful holiday filled with joy and health and happy new year for 2019.

Why I Now Believe in Santa

Aisling FitzGibbon

Dear Santa,


I hope you, Missus Claus and your fine family of reindeers and elves are top class this coming festive season. Yes I know you haven’t heard from me in a while but that’s not my fault. For some unfathomable reason once you reach teenagehood in Ireland, belief in Santa and magic is actively discouraged. There is no gradual transition, it’s like you were there one day and gone the next. Being honest I don’t think I’ve ever recovered.

There is a reason why you're the CEO of Christmas. You know what children want and you deliver. Right on time in the early hours of Christmas morning. I remember the magic, the anticipation of wondering if I’d been good enough to get what I wanted.  It was the only night of the year when I went to bed on my own without being told or cajoled. I knew the score- behave well and the goods arrive. Brilliant formula.

Nowadays Christmas is in the hands of adults which makes it very hit and miss and sometimes so chaotic and stressful that I don’t know whether I’m coming or going. The latest is the upcycling of presents you don’t want that are passed onto someone else regardless of their personal taste. So the box of biscuits you received with a smile and an inner groan gets passed onto someone else who shudders at the idea of 100,000 calories and immediately shares it with the people at work.  

This conveyor belt of madness has only one rule- do not under any circumstances return the gift you received to the person who gave it to you. The upcycled gifts in turn are recycled in January to a charity store where people buy them at rock bottom prices ready for the conveyor system for the coming festive season. You know how it is – you find a scarf or a Christmas candle and put it away for Aunt Melissa who on receipt of gift gives it to her friend from the running club who donates it to a local school charity night.

So this year you are reinstated. I affirm my belief in you. My list is ready. I’ve been good -well not consciously bad so there’s no need to send out scouts to monitor my behaviour.

Christmas list

I would really love a salt lamp because I stay inside more in the winter and seeing as they emit negative ions in small amounts, they could help my immune system. Their low light with orange hues is warm and nourishing. I’ll take two.

I hope you’ve a Neom Organic candle in stock seeing as it smells heavenly and so totally in keeping with the nativity theme. Last year’s artificial candle (an uncycled gift to me) hurt my lungs and made my eyes water.  

Have you heard of bamboo socks? That’s right. They're the latest fashion fad for feet and my feet want them (very demanding toes). The bamboo is 100% sustainable and is totally biodegradable and above all they are pesticide free.

As I plan on having guests to stay and I want them to feel at ease in my home and most of all in my bathroom. There is nothing more stressful than having to do a poo in someone else’s house and having to disguise the smell by staying in the bathroom for longer than intended and pouring some expensive body wash down the toilet to disguise unsavoury aromas. With poo pourri my guests can poo in peace. Amen. 

My hair wants Jason’s shampoo and conditioner. I always find this great value as it lasts longer than most other shampoos and they really condition my hair.  Plus it has no nasties like parabens so it’s not going to interfere with my endocrine system.  

My big present this year will have to be a Vitamix blender. I need a blender that has reliability and longevity as I plan to film cooking demos in the coming months. If you don’t have a Vitamix in stock, please don’t send me an alternative.

In 2017 I want to bounce my way into a new fitness regime. So I need an indoor rebounder that's safe and durable.

I’m so glad we’re back in touch after all these years. This Christmas will be the most magical of all. I'll be sure to have the customary Christmas pies (organic) and a glass of raw milk for you and some carrots for the reindeers.

Love,

Aisling
