If you have health-conscious friends or family members, building a unique and personalized gift hamper might be on your radar this holiday season. Fortunately, there’s an array of options available out there that will appeal to the health-centric crowd. We rounded up the best tools and health products you can give this holiday season. Feel free to mix and match them according to individual preferences.
DōMatcha® Ceremonial Starter Kit
This is the perfect gift for any tea or matcha lover out there. Matcha is stone-ground Japanese green tea and is renowned for its abundant health benefits, including being the largest source of catechins in nature and rich in the amino acid L-theanine, which is shown to reduce stress in the body.
Every DōMatcha® kit comes with a 30g tin of 100% authentic organic Japanese green tea, a bamboo whisk, a whisk stand, a ceremonial ceramic bowl, and a bamboo scoop.
Great matcha starts with good water. Throw in the 2-step filtration system Mina Alkaline Water Filter Pitcher from Santevia for refreshingly alkaline and mineral-enriched water every time.
There’s no better way to the heart than through the stomach. Surprise your loved ones with a thoughtful and nutritious pack of Culinary Organic Matcha from DōMatcha®, which is perfect for baked goods, dressings, and savoury items.
Matcha Workout Set
From hitting PRs to powering through new year’s resolutions, this set will get fitness enthusiasts excited. Travel-sized organic matcha packets from DōMatcha® and a reusable, slick Tritan water bottle from Santevia will keep them hydrated, alert, and energized throughout their training.

Inner Glow Set
Protecting our skin through the harsher winter seasons is critical. This means feeding it proper nutrients to maintain its elasticity and hydrating it generously.
Starting your day off with DōMatcha®’s ceremonial grade matcha is much more beneficial and hydrating for the skin than coffee. Coffee is a derivative which means it dehydrates your body and your skin. On the other hand, matcha is gentler on the body and the mind, producing calming effects and sustained energy. As well it’s one of the greatest sources of antioxidants, packed with polyphenols, flavonoids, and vitamin C. Antioxidants help ward off harmful oxidation of your skin cells– which is attributed to damage and aging. Vitamin C is used in various skincare products, such as serums, known for their brightening, anti-aging, and nourishing capabilities.
Another vitamin that’s excellent for skin maintenance is Vitamin D3. This is normally derived from exposure to natural sunlight and fatty fish oils. During the colder months, taking a supplement can ensure we’re getting enough of it. We recommend taking the Zero Sugar Vitamin D3 Gummy from Nordic Naturals.
The holiday season can be a stressful time. Encourage your receiver to wind down and treat themselves to some much-needed self-care throughout the winter season. Starting with the Decaffeinated Master Blend from DōMatcha®, one can receive the comfort and benefits of matcha tea without worrying about caffeine disturbing their sleep cycle. DōMatcha® carries the only decaffeinated matcha on the market. We also recommend the Zero Sugar Melatonin gummies from Nordic Naturals to ensure restful nights of good sleep.
For To-Be Mothers
Being a mom is a tough job, so why not spoil the expecting women in our life with a Bump to Baby bundle from Motherlove. This lovely set includes everything from Pregnant Belly Salve, Sitz Bath Spray, Birth & Baby Oil, Diaper Balm, Everyday Baby Balm, and Nipple Cream.

We also suggest including the Decaffeinated Masters Blend from DōMatcha®, with contains zero caffeine to soothe and energize new moms through their journeys.
