Give the Gift of Health This Year – 8 Ideas

 

Week 4 Newsletter_Healthy Gift Ideas_1115The holidays officially here and the thought of finding the perfect gift for our loved ones seem to be as constant as the holiday music at the mall.  Have you thought of giving the gift of health this year?

Here are some healthy holiday gifts that you can give your loved.

  • Subscription to Health Magazines – Many yearlong subscription to  magazines are quite affordable, so why not extend this gift that keeps on giving to someone you love?
  • Indoor Herb Garden – Adding fresh herbs to a healthy homemade meal will get the family around the dinner table in no time.
  • Exercise DVDs – When the weather outside is frightful, that’s no excuse to miss a workout.
  • Gym Membership – An annual gym membership can be expensive, but a three-month pass, or even an exercise class pass, can inspire your loved one to get moving in the new year.
  • Health and Fitness Apps – Gone are the days where we track our food and workouts on paper. A variety of applications are available to help track of physical activity, count calories, take a meditation break to de-stress, find healthy recipes, manage sleep cycles, and create shopping lists.
  • Recipe Book – Gather your favorite healthy recipes, and turn them into a recipe book from the heart.
  • Fresh Fruits and Veggies – Encourage your loved ones to eat fresh fruits and veggies from your local farms by getting them a membership to a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture).
  • Health Coupons – Gifts don’t have to be expensive or even purchased for that matter. Make up a handful of coupons that are good for a back rub, a hike in the foothills, a long walk after dinner, or even family game night.

A gift that promotes healthy living is that it’s a gift that keeps on giving this year and many years to come!  Maybe giving a healthy holiday gift really is giving the perfect gift.
