Happy Holidays Renegade,

It’s the season of giving and I wanted to take a moment to share a few gift ideas from my entrepreneurial tool belt that I personally cannot function without. They’re offered by some of my favorite Renegades. Many of which are Why Not Now? Podcast guests or alumni from the Renegade Accelerator program.There’s a gift idea on here for anyone on your shopping list. Most of these products support small businesses owned by women!

1. For Your Friend Who Needs A Little Push To Find Her Voice: Untamed by Glennon Doyle

Glennon helps people speak up for a living. Untamed, along with Love Warrior are both #1 New York Times Best-Selling books. This book is just the wake-up call every Renegade needs to find their inner voice. A timely read at this point in history. Check out episode 208 on the Why Not Now? Podcast as Glennon and I dive deep into the topics of her book.
2. For Your Health & Beauty Person: Elaine Wellness Collagen

Elaine is an alumni of the Renegade Accelerator program. She has created a high-quality collagen product. It’s self-care in a cup! After discovering she had a thyroid autoimmune disorder, which caused her hair to break and fall out, she learned first-hand that beauty starts within. Her collagen is for people who care about healthy hair, skin and nails.
3. For Your Friend That is Always Busy: Self-Care Society Membership

Help them slow down with a membership focused on self-care. It’s the fitness membership for your soul. With over 50+ class options happening every month, there is a unique class for everyone. The classes are short and sweet, yet intentional. In addition to classes, Self-Care Society offers tools to develop positive habits that stick. Self-Care Society was founded by Renegade Accelerator alumni, Danika Brysha. I’m personally a member and I love it!
4. For the Baker in Your Life: Kaleida Cuts Cookie Cutters

Founded by Renegade Accelerator Alumni, Heather Allen, Kaleida Cuts offers 3D-printed uniquely shaped cookie cutters for all occasions and seasons. This is a special gift for someone in your life that has a love for baking. I swoon over her Instagram page. Just because our cookie exchange parties are canceled doesn’t mean we shouldn’t still treat ourselves! Gift cards are available if you cannot choose which cookie cutters to buy!
5. For the Health-Conscious Top Chef in Your Life: Party in My Plants cookbook

With over 100 plant-based recipes, Renegade Accelerator alum, Talia Pollock, believes being healthy and being happy doesn’t have to be mutually exclusive. Her witty writing and innovative delicious recipes will have anyone whistling a different tune about eating healthier.

Wow your artsy friend with a unique print to spruce-up their work-from-home space.

She has created custom pieces by drawing each one of the 50 states too! Suzanne is an alumni of the Renegade Accelerator who has bridged her day job with her dream job.
7. For the Trend-Forward, Performance-Driven Biohacker in Your Life: beam
beam creates high-quality CBD products that support your overall well-being in four main areas: sleep, recovery, performance, and balance. Personally, beam’s dream powder is a treat that helped me hack my sleep schedule. It tastes just like hot cocoa and helps me unwind before bed so as a new mom, I can sleep sounder. Renegade Accelerator alum, Erin Bailey, introduced us and I haven’t looked back!
8. For the Person Feeling Overwhelmed by Their To-Do List:
People often ask me, how do you deal with overwhelm? I’m always bragging about how my team stays focused and on track all because of When I’m feeling overwhelmed, the first thing I do is get very organized. I get everything out of my head and capture it in where I can SEE it, not just feel it. Check it out with a free two-week trial including my custom social media content calendar template.
9. For the Time-Management Hacker in Your Life: Pomodoro Cube
A tactic touted in many productivity books and blogs, a Pomodoro Cube is essentially just a timer. It follows the simple philosophy of time blocking your tasks. If you give yourself 25 minutes to write an article or post, then you will complete it in 25 minutes. Leave the task open-ended, and it could drag on for days. This little gift is perfect for someone who is feeling a little overwhelmed and needs to get more work done each day.
