The traveler takes life by the reigns and moves seamlessly from one adventure to the next, but just because she’s a vagabond doesn’t meant she doesn’t like the finer things. Soothe her travel-weary soul with a natural skin revitalizer or a travel-ready tube of Fair Trade organic coconut oil. Don’t let him leave home for that next big trip without a scarf that boasts a secret pocket for his passport, or a pedal-powered phone charger that clips onto his bike wheel. You may just be asked to join in on their next big escapade. Top choice: The Wanderlust Passport! Gain entry to an unlimited number of Wanderlust events, anywhere around the world, for one price that’s just slightly more than the cost of a traditional festival.
He’s the one with aerial equipment in his apartment, who wears yoga shorts to the office. She’s the friend who’s always dragging you to the newest class at her favorite studio, who is always looking to deepen her practice through experience. Give them something they’ll use all year long, like a sustainably-sourced yoga mat or gear to keep them looking good doing it. Help them take their love to the next level by gifting the experience of yoga, either through a subscription for at-home yoga lessons or, if you’re feeling generous, a once-in-a-lifetime retreat. Top choices: WAN(DER)LUST x Manduka eKO Travel Mat + Wanderlust Eco Towel
She’s always dragging you to a new, trendy meditation studio, or reminding you of the calming benefits of lavender. He’s the one with an altar and vision board in his apartment, or who’s forever quoting his favorite new age literature. The spiritualist welcomes any opportunity to dig deeper—and loves gifts that help on the quest to inner greatness and health. Who knows? Buying for them may just add a new dimension to your own soul as well. Top choice: Wanderlust x Mala Collective Wanderlust Mala + The Moon Deck

For the artist, living is style, flair, and the appreciation of well-made and well-crafted goods. The artist takes his tea in a hand-carved mug, wears beanies and Buddha pants, and wouldn’t be caught leaving the house without her illustrated notebook for random bursts of inspiration. Give them an inspired gift that leads them in their creative pursuits, that matches their perfectly-designed life. Because who doesn’t want to receive a thank-you note written in calligraphy on homemade paper? Top choice: Wanderlust Moleskin Notebook

The foodie movement is sweeping the nation and your foodie friend or family member is in her hey-day. This, of course, means that it’s more difficult than ever to come up with a creative and meaningful gift—but not to worry. Forget gift certificates to restaurants and organic grocery stores; indulge their taste buds instead with a turmeric juice, chai mix, or a special sprouted brown rice protein blended with fruits. Just keep your fingers crossed that they invite you over to dinner to test the new recipes from our cookbook. Top choice: Find Your True Fork cookbook by Wanderlust co-founder Jeff Krasno
You’re usually a step behind the go-getter, but not this holiday season. The go-getter has their jam-packed lifestyle on lockdown, but we all need tools to help us manage and slow down sometimes. Treat the most ambitious person in your life to smart jewelry that helps them disconnect, or a brain-sensing headband that monitors brain activity to help make meditationeasier. Better yet, give them the gift of self care by introducing them to the calming potential of essential oils. Top choice: Givescent Body Oil
