The ultimate biohacking gift guide for anyone looking to improve their health and quality of life. Check out our favorite biohacking & wellness tools for the perfect gift, ranging from supplements to wearable gadgets.
You've seen so many gift guides that you're starting to go blind. However, this isn't your typical gift guide. These are the biohacking products that I use. What is the significance of this? Because I use each of these products in my daily routine and they all work.
For years, I looked up to the biohacking guinea pigs who came before me, including Dave Asprey, Tim Ferriss, and the ice man himself, Wim Hoff. I've tried it all: heat and cold exposure, fasting, sleep hacking, blue light blocking, keto, paleo, you name it. Some things have worked, while others have not.
I'm extremely busy, and my life is chaotic. I'm a 48-year-old entrepreneur who runs two businesses, works out regularly and lives a crazy but rewarding life with my wife and two energetic kids under the age of ten. I've also had PTSD for over 20 years and have struggled with sleep issues as a result. These are my top picks, the things I've tried that have had the most impact on my health in the last 5 years. Enjoy!

THE SLEEP HACKER
No. 1. Oura Ring
My top pick is truly something that has been game changer. Sleep health is essential for our well-being, but how do you know how well you sleep if you can't track it? There is, however, a solution. The fashionable Oura Ring. If you keep track of your steps, why not keep track of your sleep? This incredible ring monitors a variety of body signals and uses data to help you better understand your health. It is designed to be worn continuously in order to provide feedback on your body's Readiness, Sleep, and Activity. Oura Ring provides users with the data they need to achieve their goals and demonstrates how to get more deep sleep. $349 USD at https://ouraring.com.
No. 2. ChiliPAD Sleep System.
The chiliPAD Sleep System is a really cool gift for your partner who always turns down the thermostat so much that you freeze at night or for your mom who complains about chronic insomnia. We sleep better when we're cooler, according to science, and this sleep system does just that. The chiliPAD Sleep System, one of the top-rated home sleep remedies, includes a trademarked cooling mattress pad, a hydropowered thermal regulating control unit, and a remote to easily control the temperature. Price: $639.20 for a half Queen pad and control unit at Chilisleep.com Shipping is free, and it comes with a 30-night sleep trial so you can try it out risk-free. https://sleep.me
FOR THE HEALTH GURU
#3 Raw Botanics: Functional Mushroom and Plant Supplements.
No secret that my own product made the list. My partner and I developed this company to solve serious issues that no other supplements seemed to master. Mushrooms and plant-based supplements for the "health guru" are ideal supplements for stocking stuffers or gift sets. 100% natural and made in the United States Raw Botanics supplements are intended to improve athletic performance, concentration, cognitive health, longevity, energy, immunity, and sleep. Each Raw Botanics supplement contains ingredients that have been carefully researched and synergistically paired to help you perform at your best. Help your loved ones' overall health by including a few bottles for yourself. The Raw Botanics Co's REST & REFRESH with Reishi Mushroom and CBN is one of our favorite supplements for the Biohacker. RELAX & FOCUS with Lion's Mane, CBC, and CBD, Immunity Boost with Cordyceps, Turkey Tail, CBD, and CBG, and of course the powerhouse nootropic RELAX & FOCUS with Lion's Mane, CBC, and CBD.
