Ginger Shots (Instead of Canned Cocktails)
This golden elixir is a natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, and it’s commonly used as treatment for stomach issues such as indigestion and bloating (both side effects of your post-party shenanigans). Plus, ginger may also help boost your immune system!
Protein-Packed Donuts (Instead of Regular Donuts)
We know what you’re thinking—why would anyone want to change a donut? Well, these healthier versions are just as delicious, with the added bonus that they’ll give you and your crew the protein you need in the morning. Also, they’re baked, not fried!
DIY Bug Spray (Instead of Regular Bug Spray)
Because we’ll take any excuse to get crafty with a homemade product. Experiment with essential oils such as citronella, clove, lemongrass, rosemary, tea tree, eucalyptus, lavender, spearmint, peppermint, cajeput and cinnamon. Short on time? Buy a homemade repellent from Etsy!
Aloe Vera Succulent (Instead of Hand Cream)
We know it sounds cliché, but it’s the gift that keeps on giving! You can extract aloe from your plant and make your own aloe vera gel, or combine it with essential oils and beeswax to make lotion. Plus, the plant has the added bonus that it doubles as decor—yes, please.
So there you have it. Are you excited to try any of these healthy wedding gifts with your bridal/groom party? Let us know in the comments below!
