This time of year, it can be challenging to stay on a path of wellness, so why not give gifts that encourage friends and loved ones to maintain a healthy spirit? We’re not talking about circa-1980 aerobics videos here – health-promoting gifts come in all kinds of appealing shapes and sizes. Options abound, and we’re sharing just a handful of our favorites here:
Essential Oils and Diffuser: Give the gift of a heavenly-smelling house, with the relaxing benefits of aromatherapy as well. Pair a diffuser with a festively scented oil blend for a gift that will be enjoyed year round.
Travel Toiletries Set: Sure, most of us have a bag of drug store toiletries to use at the gym or on the road. For gift giving purposes, think luxury, and share the indulgence of natural minded, high end shower supplies (don’t forget skincare) that create a mini spa experience every time they’re used – bonus points for a beautiful bag to hold it all.
Artisanal Olive Oil: Treat a friend to a sampling of premium olive oils – scope out your area to see if there are any local growers, or blenders of flavored oils.
Fine Tea: Introduce the ritual of tea to a newbie, or help a devotee branch out and try new varieties and blends.
Wireless Earbuds: Want to help a loved one get jazzed about working out? Get that tech-obsessed exerciser moving with a new set of wireless earbuds. Models from Skullcandy, Beats, and Apple are all the rage this season, so do a little window-shopping and find a set that works for your recipient – and your budget.
Wine: Most of us love to receive a bottle of vino. If you’re feeling really flush, consider a wine of the month club.
Whatever gifts you share this holiday, remember that a gift of wellness is one that will benefit the recipient’s health in seasons to come.
