Gifts that Inspire a Healthy Lifestyle

With the Christmas season rapidly approaching, attention has turned towards gift giving. After a year where health has been the focus of our attention, it is only natural that we would want to buy gifts that inspire a healthy lifestyle for our loved ones. Health is the one thing money can’t buy, but if we live a healthy lifestyle our well-being will improve.

When my husband and I met we were both in our 40’s and each had a house full of furniture. We had enough “stuff”. Our presents to each other are usually “experiences” rather than more “stuff”. For example, a sunset boat cruise with dinner, a weekend away, or a fishing charter trip. One of my favourite gifts was a day at a spa for pampering. We’ve also bought each other concert and theater tickets, a snorkeling trip and a whale watching boat cruise.

At the top of my wish list this year is a gift voucher for massages which I have regularly for my back pain. The gift of quality time together is priceless to me, as our time together is limited by our work hours – my husband regularly works away from home, and I do shift work. Having said that, it is still nice to receive a gift sometimes and why not give someone a gift that can inspire a healthy lifestyle. Here are some ideas for gifts for your loved ones.

FITNESS AND WELL-BEING GIFTS:

  • gift certificate for massages
  • sports shoes
  • exercise equipment e.g. hand weights (see my article The Best Workout Gear to Use at Home for some great ideas)
  • Hamper with beauty products, (ensure the moisturiser is sun friendly).
  • yoga mat
  • fitness tracker e.g. Fitbit
  • Air purifier
  • Workout gear and Sportswear: You feel better working out in comfortable clothes so a voucher to a sportswear shop like Lorna Jane, Nike or Rebel Sport allows them to buy workout gear that fits properly.
  • 10 visit pass for a gym
  • water filter
