We’ve officially entered the holiday shopping season. Wow, time flies.
You’re probably seeing holiday promotions pop up left, right, and center at every storefront, and plastered across your smartphone, laptop, or tablet.
Feeling overwhelmed yet?
That’s why we’re here… To help you navigate the flurry of online offers, and provide a holiday gift guide full of items your friends and family can benefit from.
The Most Wonderful Time of Year…can be pretty stressful!
Let’s face it, when the holiday season hits, you’re either holiday meal prepping, decorating, or shopping.
Now, you can choose to meander through every department store in your town, city, or neighborhood. You can open every single one of your holiday promotion emails.
But unless you know exactly what your friend or family member wants, then chances are your hard-earned money will go toward a gift that nobody asked for. Or worse: regifted to you the following year.
Holiday shopping is a physical, mental, and emotional workout. And when you’re dealing with hard-to-buy-for people, or people who refuse to give you a hint at what they want or need, it’s enough to make you scream “Bah humbug!” and keep all the gifts to yourself like a fed-up grinch.
That’s why we recommend you consider CBD as a gift.
Yes, you heard us right, CBD is the ultimate Christmas gift. It’s the gift that keeps on giving, because it literally brings out the best in people.
Why Buy CBD as a Holiday gift?
As much as we love the festive lights, jolly music, delicious holiday dishes, and spending time with distant friends and family, it’s common knowledge that stress and anxiety often go hand-in-hand with the holiday season.
And we all know that too much stress can wreak havoc on the human body. In fact, did you know that intense and long-term stress can cause digestive problems, urinary issues, fertility problems, and a weakened immune system?
It’s also been shown that anxiety is often a normal reaction to stress.
But the holiday season is supposed to be a fun and joyous time of year, right? Yes, but the holiday season invites the feeling of not being in control. Many people are unable to manage their normal life activities and routines, and that can increase levels of distress.
For those reasons, we say: Give the gift of calm, of health and wellness to your friends, family, and colleagues. Give the gift of CBD!
What’s the best CBD gift idea?
The cannabinoid world has come a long way. Now more than ever, people are embracing the therapeutic properties of CBD with open arms and open minds.
And with such demand for more high-quality CBD, more and more hemp brands are developing truly innovative and unique CBD products. Seriously, the amount of CBD products on the market is enough to make your head spin.
So, how do you find the best holiday CBD gift? Where do you begin?
We suggest you start with practicality…
Practical gifts are the best. But practical gifts don’t have to be awkward kitchen appliances or the “I-had-no-idea-what-to-get-you” package of socks. Unless, of course, your loved ones asked for those gifts, in which case, go for it!
Instead, we suggest practical gifts that are useful, consumable, and most of all beneficial to the human body.
So, let’s start with…
1. Edible gifts
One of the best gifts you can give someone is a gift that they can consume, like CBD gummies.
CBD gummies are amazing, especially when you purchase from a reputable hemp brand.
They’re pre-dosed with just enough high-quality CBD to get the job done. They’re tasty, fun to eat, and most of all, conveniently easy to use.
And here’s the best part: Most CBD gummies are vegan and gluten free, so you’ve literally found the perfect gift for those people in your life with food sensitivities.
But if you know your friends and family won’t like a good ol’ fashioned gummy candy, then you might have better luck with CBD chocolates and cookies.
That’s right folks, the CBD industry has finally figured out how to make decadent CBD chocolate bars that are incredibly therapeutic. We’ve tried them, and our mouths are watering just thinking about them.
There are even CBD cookies, brownies, and honey sticks to choose from. Heck, if you want, you could create your own CBD edible gift basket. Now we’re talking.
Our only advice is to remind your friends and family to not eat their CBD edibles in one setting, and to only purchase high quality CBD edibles from reputable CBD brands.
2. Wellness Gifts
Now, there are a lot of wellness gifts out there, like essential oil kits, candles, etc. But you can get a big bang for your buck with high quality CBD oil.
CBD oil is incredibly versatile. It can be dosed directly under your tongue, or a few drops can be added to a favorite recipe, skincare product, or beverage.
The best part about CBD oil is that it typically lasts a lot longer than CBD edibles. A little goes a long way.
You honestly can’t go wrong with CBD oil, especially if you get it from a reputable CBD brand.
Last but not least…
3. Skincare gifts
Gifts for skincare lovers are without a doubt some of the most popular holiday gift options out there. But skincare gifts aren’t just for skincare lovers.
As you know, the holidays are associated with colder and drier weather, which can wreak havoc on your skin, causing what we like to call “Winter skin syndrome”. Think sandpaper hands, arms, and legs, flaky foreheads, and lizard lips.
And believe it or not, a lot of men struggle with drier skin in the colder seasons than women. So, receiving a high quality and practical skincare gift set is actually a gift that speaks volumes.
It’s a gift that says, “Hey, you’re important. You deserve to pamper yourself!”
Now, there are a ton of CBD skincare gifts on the market: CBD creams, lotions, lip balms, and muscle rubs. We love them all!
And if you know someone who loves one or all of those skincare products, then by all means, create your own CBD skincare gift basket!
But before you seal up that gift basket, there’s one other CBD skincare gift you need to include: CBD bath bombs.
Now don’t be fooled, CBD bath bombs are not a niche product. They’re universal and great for both men and women. Seriously, men need self-care too, and CBD bath bombs aren’t just for the ladies.
You see, warm or hot water allows the pores of your skin to open and absorb whatever’s in the water. So when you lay in a tub of hot water and CBD, you’re actually allowing all the little pores throughout your skin to willingly receive all that CBD has to offer. And folks, it has a lot to offer!
Look, CBD bath bombs are great stress relief gifts’ they’re even perfect gifts for back pain, awesome relaxation gifts, and perhaps the most unique recovery gift options in our holiday gift guide.
In fact, we’ve personally given CBD bath bombs as gifts for people with anxiety.
But we’ve gotta tell you that if you really want to send the message of pampering yourself and promoting self-care, we highly recommend you consider Alki’s high quality CBD bath bombs.
