Dec 2 2016

Get ready to check off a slew of people on your holiday gift list! We've got some great picks for a fun and healthy new year, and each one costs less than $30!

Veggetti Pro

Spiralized veggies aren't going away anytime soon, and we're glad about that! The easiest way to turn veggies into pasta-like noodles is with this table-top gadget. Three different attachments allow you to create different sizes and shapes, so you can make everything from curly carrot strands to fettuccine zucchini! To give your gift a personal touch, include printouts of HG recipes, like these eight spiralized delights!

PakRat Running Belt Waist Pack

This is a game-changing accessory, people! PakRat is a sleek fanny-pack swap and the ultimate carrying case, capable of holding keys, cash, a phone, and MUCH more. The fold-over design is equal parts flattering and functional, making it perfect for the gym, outdoor exercise, traveling, etc. It's comfy, it's cute... Such a great gift! People are obsessed with PakRat. The first time we featured it, over 350 super-happy HG fans ordered ‘em!


Back by popular demand! If your pal loves fancy coffee drinks, these decorative chocolate disks will make their at-home beverages super special. Just lay one on the surface of a hot drink, pause to admire its beauty, let it melt, and then sip up the cocoa-rific goodness. Only 25 calories per piece, and they come in four tasty varieties: Dark Chocolate, Caramel, Hazelnut, and French Vanilla. Bonus: This year, the company’s offering a limited edition holiday mix, plus a $3 discount on it with coupon code MIXITUP. And when you buy any two or more 10-count boxes, you'll get free shipping (automatically applied at checkout). Yes!

Hungry Girl Clean & Hungry: Easy All-Natural Recipes for Healthy Eating in the Real World

It's the most recent HG cookbook, just released this year! Sure, we're a little biased, but these recipes are insanely amazing: You get giant portions of delicious food, all easy to make and under 375 calories! And for the first time, we included full-color photos of every recipe. From slow-cooker meals to decadent desserts, this book is crammed with must-make creations. And it's perfect for your Weight Watchers pals, since all the SmartPoints® are provided online. (Print a copy to accompany the book!) Shop around our sale page to find the best deal (as much as 40 percent off)!

Aladdin 34-oz. Classic Mason Salad Jar

This isn't just any ol' mason jar. First of all, this thing is huge. Secondly, instead of breakable glass, it's made of lightweight yet sturdy BPA-free plastic. Thirdly, the cute and colorful top has a special compartment, in case you want to store dressing or crunchy toppings separately! HG idea: Print out some recipes, and place them inside the jar before wrapping it. Such a fun gift for food lovers.

Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker

We're fascinated by this gadget that cooks up a whole egg-patty sandwich from scratch -- piece by piece, all at once! It’s equal parts fun and functional. This is the must-get contraption for that pal of yours with the morning drive-thru habit. Just think of all the healthy sandwich combos... Turkey, reduced-fat Swiss cheese, and egg whites, anyone? We love this! Hint, hint, Mom...

Food Huggers

The first time we heard the term "food huggers," we thought someone was teasing us. (Yes, we've been known to hug food.) But no: These are little silicone sheaths that slip over the cut edge of fruits and veggies so the produce stays fresh for longer. Since it keeps air away from those edges, it prevents oxidation, a.k.a. dryness and browning. No more plastic wrap and sealable baggies for your lucky pals! Adorable, affordable, and good for the environment. Score!

einfach Simple Premium Essentials 6pc Stainless Steel Kitchen Gadget Tool Set

These are soooooo pretty!! Anyone who likes to entertain would surely be ecstatic to score this set. There's a colorful cheese slicer, grater, peeler, pizza cutter, ice cream scoop, and multi-function bottle opener. Basically the definition of "party ready." This kit is ideal for kitchen newbies in need of supplies or anyone who would appreciate a colorful addition to their cookware. And it’s a total steal. (Thanks, Amazon!)

Chew on this:

It's the second day of National Eggnog Month. (December, obviously.) We're crazy about So Delicious Dairy Free Coconut Holiday Nog. Try a splash in your coffee ASAP!
