I recently took a stroll through the spectacular Whole Foods at Houston and Second Avenue in NYC for a press event, which houses a spacious second floor area with an organic, natural version of any health and beauty product you could possibly think of! From toothpaste to deodorant and cosmetics, they’ve really got it all covered. One of my favorite products from the day was the bath salts (pictured above) that you can scoop out and pay for by the pound. At Whole Foods in the tri-state area (New Jersey, Connecticut, New York) you can receive complimentary gift wrapping on your gift purchases, which can expand beyond the Whole Body section of the store. For example, for that fitness lover, get them some sunscreen, a water bottle, and protein bars as a fun gift set.
I mainly oohed and awed over the Whole Body section which carried such an extensive depth and breadth of products by a variety of brands, some local, and even some fitness and home decor items such as yoga mats and candles. Whole Foods also offers pre-packaged gift sets which start at just $6.99 for their proprietary brand, 365, which includes two 16 oz bottles of gel, lotion, shampoo, and the like, and also carries the Premium Body Care Seal, which means it meets natural and organic standards -and do not contain ingredients such as parabens, polypropylene and polyethylene glycols, sodium lauryl and laureth sulfates. If you have a Whole Foods in your area, give the Whole Body section or aisle a second glance when thinking about holiday gifts this year!
