It’s that time of year again when you’re racking your brain trying to figure out what to get everyone as a gift. While you could very well go and grab a meaningless gift and wrap it, it feels so much better when you can give someone something they’ll actually appreciate and get some use out of. With health being such a major topic for individuals of all walks of life, you could certainly find a great gift that will mean a lot and help them maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Below are some options you might consider.
- Gym Membership
It seems that everyone puts weight loss as a New Year’s Resolution. Well, what better way to support your friend or family’s quest for a slimmer waistline then to purchase them a gym membership? Many gyms advertise affordable monthly rates with no contract necessary so subscribing for a friend or family member shouldn’t be too much of a hassle.
- Gym Equipment
If the person you’re purchasing a gift for is not much of a gym goer then you can’t go wrong with purchasing fitness equipment or accessories. An ab roller, a holder for their cell phones while jogging, or even a monitor that takes their blood pressure and blood sugar would be a great way to help them stay fit in the upcoming year.
- Anti-Embolism Hose
While anti-embolism suggests dealing with blood clots, these can actually make a great gift for anyone who’s always on their feet. Certain anti embolism hose and socks actually provide enough pressure for the legs, ankles, and feet that they can help with pain relief, improved blood circulation, and energized legs.
- Workout Gear
Who doesn’t love to look great while they’re working out? You could totally purchase the health-conscious person in your life some cool workout gear this holiday. Yoga pants with a matching windbreaker for women or a nice sweat suit or basketball shorts for guys.
- Trip to the Spa
There’s nothing like a day of pampering to make someone’s day. Not only are massages great for relaxation but there are a plethora of other health benefits. They can help to improve your mood, blood circulation, get better sleep, relieve pain, and even take away signs of stress or depression. Spa days can be great to go alone or with a friend so if you want to treat yourself this holiday season, grab a certificate for yourself as well.
There is probably no cooler gadget to a health nut than having a juicer or blender on hand. Even if they already have one, when used on the daily basis the wear and tear could cause the machine to break down. Your gift can act as a backup. There are so many types to choose from including single serving blenders and larger ones for the entire family. If you’re really feeling generous, you could pick out some fresh fruits and veggies and make a nice health basket to give to them.
If the person you’re looking to purchase a gift for is currently part of a health program like Weight Watchers, purchasing meals for them is a great gift. The cost of healthy portioned and prepped meals can get expensive; therefore purchasing even a week’s worth of foods or shakes would really help them out and keep them on track to losing weight.
Hopefully this has given you a few ideas on where to start as the holidays are just around the corner. There’s a gift in here for just about every type of health-conscious person today. Whether they have preexisting health conditions that warrant them to be mindful of their health or they simply want to improve their lifestyle, these gifts will certainly put a smile on their face this holiday season.
