Are you trying to figure out what to get a friend or family member this holiday season? It can be hard to pick out gifts for certain people. You don’t want to get them something unoriginal, and you want to get them something they’ll really use. We’ve stepped outside the box of a pair of jeans or a new shirt and have some great, healthy holiday gift ideas for everyone.
When it comes to healthy gifts, you have to think which gifts are going to best suit the people you are buying them for. Are they trying to be more active, or are they taking yoga classes? Maybe they are into food and would benefit from cookbooks or kitchenware. We hope the following gifts give you some inspiration. Happy shopping!
#1: Vegetable Spiralizer
This is an easy-to-use kitchen tool that can help you get creative and healthy with your meals. You can make zucchini or cucumber noodles, or thin potato shavings that you can make into homemade chips. Most spiralizers come with a little book that gives you ideas too!
#2: Spa Package
While the holidays are great for spending time with family, the end of the year can often create a lot of stress. What better way to unwind than at the spa? You can even gift someone a massage so that they can lower stress and feel more relaxed. Pssst…this is a great gift for mom.
#3: Indoor Herb/Vegetable Garden
Having fresh vegetables or herbs in your kitchen can inspire someone to cook healthier, more natural meals. Green onions, parsley, cilantro, basil, celery, or a variety of sprouts are great indoor veggies & herbs you can grow in pots in your windowsill.
#4: Dog Light or Light-up Leash
Some of your friends might be dog lovers, almost to the point where they treat them like their own children. Since it gets dark quite early in the winter months, a dog light or light-up leash is great because it won’t stop them from taking their canine friends out for an evening walk.
#5: Fruit/Vegetable of the Month Club
Sometimes, people are daunted by the produce section in a grocery store, or they may just skip over it altogether. Getting a subscription to a fruit/vegetable of the month club is a great gift because the company delivers healthy, fresh produce straight to the person’s door. These services are readily available in many cities and provide delicious seasonal produce!
#6: Athletic/Yoga Attire
It is quite common for people to have a New Year’s resolution to get fit or live a healthier lifestyle. Athletic wear or yoga attire may give them that extra push to really take control of their physical health.
#7: A Cleanse
This may not be the new, sleek laptop someone has been eyeing, but it is a way to completely turn a person’s life around. If you do end up purchasing a cleanse, it can be great to buy on for yourself to do it with the person. This way he or she will have a partner to tackle health and weight loss goals.
