2. A fitness tracker
If your loved one is active, or wants to be, a fitness tracker or smart watch might be the best thing Santa could bring. There are so many brands on the market these days that you’re sure to find one that fits your needs and budget.
Fitbits are loved by both fitness fiends and ordinary folk wanting to increase their activity levels.
A Garmin is a great choice for outdoor lovers and the battery in their Vivofit band last for a year!
The Apple Watch does it all with thousands of apps for fitness tracking, music streaming, sending email, tracking your water intake and even making calls (on the cellular model!). For Apple lovers, the AirPod wireless headphones also make a great gift!

4. A Fancy Water Bottle

5. A Dailygreatness Journal
This little gem has all of the practical elements you would expect from a great planner, but adds in superchargers like goal planning, weekly check ins and other tools for self-mastery. You can even track the things you’re thankful for.
A daily gratitude practice is one of the most effective ways of improving your happiness levels. In today’s fast-paced world where we are constantly bombarded with advertising messages it becomes very easy to fall into the trap of thinking we never have enough. But taking time to regularly count and acknowledge our blessings can have a plethora of benefits including higher self esteem, a more positive outlook, better sleep and less stress.
There is a something in this range for everyone including 90 day planners and full year editions.
Price: $39.95 – $69.95

6. A Meditation or Personal Growth Course
If your loved one is looking to take their mindset to the Next Level in 2019, an online course in meditation or mind mastery might be just what Santa ordered. Creator of the popular website Live and Dare, Giovanni Dienstmann has designed a range of courses in meditation and self-mastery as well as acceptance and letting go. And the best part is that they also come packaged up for very reasonable monthly membership fee in his Limitless Life programs.
Price: from $19 per month

7. An Audible Membership
If you haven’t heard of Audible you’re missing out! After putting off joining for over a year, I finally signed up a few months ago and have already finished listened to almost 10 audiobooks! These are books that otherwise would be sitting on my bedside table gathering dust and waiting for a quiet moment when I have time to sit down and read. Being able to carry them in your pocket and just pop in headphones whenever the opportunity arises is quite amazing.
If you have a busy book lover on your list, Audible membership is a great choice. If they have a long commute they can listen in the car, or at the gym or on a walk. None of those places are practical for reading but listening doesn’t require anything but a pair of open ears.
Price: $14.95 per month – includes 1 book

8. An Inner Portrait Profile
This would have to be our favourite choice from this list! An Inner Portrait profile is a unique way of discovering things about yourself that you probably never knew. It’s perfect for recipients who are super curious or into personal development and always striving for the next level. After a 10 minute online psychometric test you receive a 22 page report all about you and your individual energetic wiring.
It’s all unpacked in a 90 minute session with an Accredited Consultant where you will learn about your natural behavioural profile as well as how you are adapting to your environment. You will experience “aha” moments as things that you maybe never understood about yourself suddenly make sense. The flow on effects can be huge.
An Inner Portrait profile makes a great gift for someone you care for, including a partner or spouse, a sibling, parent or adult child, or even (and especially!) yourself!
You can even get a couples assessment to help take your relationship or marriage to the Next Level.
Price: $449 (save $100) for a single profile
