Christmas Gifts for Women in Eating Disorder Recovery

For those who have a family member with an eating disorder
you know that just talking about ‘thee’ eating disorder can be challenging.
Never the less, trying to purchase a gift for someone in recovery can be a
tight rope of difficulty. Therefore your favorite eating disorder recovery blogis here to help!

 

While working as Support Staff I found it inspiring how many
women wanted to wear T-Shirts, bracelet’s and even get tatoos’s symbolizing their
eating disorder recovery. The very disease that they once hid under lock, key
and piles of lies was now a badge of honor to share their own struggle and hope
with others. What better way to celebrate that honor than to give a gift that ‘gives
back to eating disorder recovery’?!?!

I have compiled a list of some very artsy, cool and legit
products that either a.) Stand for eating disorder recover and/ or b.) Donate a
portion of the proceeds of the gift to eating disorder prevention or recovery.
Check out the goods here!

Happy Recovery (and Holiday Shopping!)

 Lip Conditioner

I was approached by an amazing, smart, kind, beautiful girl named Nikki to create a lip conditioner inspired by a very serious epidemic that she is facing. The complete story & idea was written & inspired by Nikki & her loving dog named Javo (they are in the artwork). Please, see below... 'Princess Nikki & Her Hero Javo the Dog'

Once upon a time there was a beautiful princess who could only see ugliness and fat when she looked in the mirror even though she was thin. She would lock herself in the highest castle tower and obsess over how thick every part of her body was. She would cry every night. Then one day, a stray dog came to the tower base and whined and whined until she came down. The dog gave her big sloppy kisses and told her she was the most beautiful girl in the world and that she should eat because he would be very lonely if she were gone. They became the best of friends, helping each other along in the journey of life and never leaving one another's side. (an edited version of this story appears on the lip conditioner label)

She Decided She was Worth it, Magnet

I can't think of a better lift-yourself-up, confidence-boosting, you-go-girl saying than this one. I want to scream it from the rooftops to myself when I'm feeling crappoo. "You're worth it!" Not worth it like buying a car I can't afford, or spending money on stuff I don't need (ewww, like jewelry?), but worth loving myself. Worth knowing that I'm okay, I'm doing my best and Im' not such a bad person, anyway! That kind of worth it!
