Holiday Gifts That Promote Better Health
By Genevieve Cunningham
It's that time of year. Shopping season. Just before the rush of the holidays begins, we're all spending way too much time and money on gifts. It's all about finding the perfect gift, and we often stress ourselves to the max trying to find it. If you're stuck and searching for ideas, why not turn toward health? If you need some good ideas for gifts, take a look at these healthy options that are affordable and health friendly for your loved ones.
Filtered Water Bottle
A filtered water bottle looks like a regular water bottle, but it comes with an insert in the middle. This insert helps remove unnecessary chemicals and dirt from your water. It's great for staying healthy, and also great for people who want a very mild taste to their water. You can buy these at most department stores, or you can most certainly find them online. If you want a generic healthy gift, a water bottle might be a great choice.
A fruit basket is a delicious option for any healthy eaters in your life. Fill the basket with their favorite fruits, add some cheese or nuts, and you have a really nice gift for a loved one. You can buy these pre-made, or if you're up for the challenge, you can make it yourself. Just make sure you buy this gift close to the holidays or you run the risk of the fruit going bad.
If you have any relatives who like to cook, hook them up with a healthy book of recipes. This plays to their interests (cooking!) while still bringing a healthy spin to the gift. Check out your local bookstore or do some shopping online to find a cookbook with good reviews, fun recipes, and healthy ingredients for all.
Gift cards can make great gifts because they let the recipient choose what they really want. Offer a gift card for a massage, to a gym, or at a healthy restaurant. This allows them to make choices that meet their needs, but still pushes in a healthy direction. This is a great gift that can be bought way ahead of time, or for someone who you don't know on a close personal level.
You can definitely give healthy holiday gifts without going overboard. You just need a little creativity! Use these ideas to get started, and you can give some of the best gifts for the best health this holiday season.
