What could be a more perfect holiday gift than the gift of good health? But would your friends and loved ones really appreciate a sensible healthy holiday gift? If you do it right, they will.
Everyone knows it's really tough to stay trim and healthy during the holidays. But why be part of the problem instead of part of the solution? Of course, you don't want to be insensitive, like giving a weight loss book to someone who could stand to lose a few pounds. Not a good idea!
Great Healthy Holiday Gift Ideas
Here are some excellent healthy holiday gift ideas for good health that would be appreciated. And these holiday gift ideas will help the people you care about to be more (not less) healthy.
A Fresh Fruit Gift Basket: For something that's both tasty and nutritious, you can't go wrong with a gift of fresh fruit. Harry and David have many different varieties of holiday fruit gifts to choose from. Or give unsalted almonds and walnuts or a fruit and nut gift box.
Fancy Vinegar and Olive Oil: Gourmet bottles of aged balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil are super healthy holiday gift ideas. Just adding good quality balsamic vinegar and a few sprinkles of olive oil can turn an unexciting salad into a healthy luxurious gourmet taste treat.
Exercise DVD or Video Game: For those who want to exercise at home, there are many excellent games like Wii Fit or Just Dance and exercise DVDs like Leslie Sansone's Walk at Home, Jillian Michaels' No More Trouble Zones or The Complete Collection of Sweatin' to the Oldies. Just be sensitive to whether or not this is something the person would really want.
Active video games like EA Sports Active, Dance Dance Revolution or even Rock Band also provide a good workout for both teens and “baby boomer” parents. In fact, studies show active video game players burn twice as many calories as non-active game players.
Cool Electric Toothbrush: Since it’s a cool gadget that combines state-of-the-art technology with oral hygiene, an electric toothbrush is a good gift for the child who has everything. Studies show kids are a lot more likely to brush their teeth on a regular basis with an electronic toothbrush. And one with a timer makes sure they brush longer and more diligently.
Snazzy Metal Water Bottle: This is a great gift for anyone on your list who's physically active. But make sure you get a stainless steel bottle that's free of chemicals and environmentally safe. Since they can be refilled with filtered water as often as needed, metal bottles are also a lot cheaper and much more convenient in the long run than buying water in plastic bottles.
Healthy Holiday Gift Cards: If you’re not exactly sure what to get, a gift card from a local sports, outdoor or health food store makes a great healthy holiday gift. And it allows your friends to pick out whatever they want. Gift certificates for yoga, Pilates or aerobics classes or dance lessons taught by someone you know and recommend also make great holiday gifts.
Other excellent healthy holiday gift ideas include relaxing music CDs, pedometers, a watch with a heart rate monitor, lunch totes, healthy cookware or a good Mediterranean style cookbook.
The point is, healthy holiday gifts can make a positive contribution to your friends and loved ones all year long. So use these healthy holiday gift ideas to give the gift of good health to everyone you love or care about. And have a Happy Healthy Holiday and New Year!
