5 Body Positive Gift Ideas!

body positive gift ideas body love wellnessA few weeks ago I gave you 5 tips for surviving the holidays as a non-dieting, body positive person.

So this week I’d like to suggest some body positive/ fat positive gifts for the rad fatty in your life!

  1. Body Positive Books— There are so many out there right now, I couldn’t pick just one.  Here are a few I think you’ll love:
  2. Yay! Scale — I love these things. It’s really empowering to step on a scale and see that you’re hot, gorgeous, beautiful etc. at any size!
  3. Certain Clothing Store Gift Cards — One of the worst gifts you can give someone is a gift card to a store that doesn’t carry their size.  Stores like Kiyonna, Igigi, SWAK Designs and Torrid go up to 5x, which will work for most plus-sized folks, but if you think your giftee may not be in this size range, choose a different gift.
  4. Body Glitter — I love body glitter.  It’s may seem completely frivolous, but I believe that body glitter is one of those things that crowds out body hate.  Here are two (1 and 2) that I like.
  5. Earrings — One of the most lovely things about loving your body is having fun with adornment.  Unlike bracelets, rings and necklaces, earrings are really one size fits all (unless your giftee has gauged or unpierced earlobes).  Of course, you can go lots of different ways with earrings, but I’ve been eyeing these on pinterest for a few days now.

I hope you have fun checking out these gifts. Happy Holidays!

Oooh, body glitter. I’m tempted to add some of that to my nieces’ gifts. Where’s a good place to find some? (Lush doesn’t exist in Oklahoma, and I’m sick of ordering online.) The rest of their gift is handmade soap, lotion, and lip balm, and a (real, bridal-style) tiara for each of them. Because sometimes, it helps to know that you’re the freaking queen of your own life. (They’re 16 and 18, and I figure they could use some reminding that they’re awesome.)

Those gifts sound lovely! Maybe try a Claire’s or a department store for the body glitter?

I hadn’t even thought of Claire’s! Thanks! :) Or maybe Ulta. I think I’ve got a coupon from there in my email. Must check. Maybe I can run by after I finish my cooking this weekend. (Four batches of fudge, and I’m home free! You have no idea how much sugary goodness I’ve already got piled on the dining room table.)
