Healthy Holiday Gifts

| Uncategorized

The Get Healthy Team would like to wish you a Happy Healthy Holiday this year! For those of you looking for the perfect healthy gift to give someone special, we have some great ideas below:

Stocking Stuffers:

Pedometer. Do you know someone who’s trying to start a simple exercise program? A pedometer, which counts each step a person takes and the distance they’ve walked, makes a perfect present for someone who’s trying to be more active.

Portable music device or gift card for music. Combining music and exercise often motivates people to be more active. You don’t just have to download music either; you can download books or movies to watch or listen to while exercising.


Holiday Plants. Instead of giving the neighbors more sugary goodies as a way to say happy holidays, think of giving a non-food related like a poinsettia plant or wreath. It’s a calorie free way of saying we were thinking of you during the holidays.

Active video games for kids and adults. Your children want to play video games. You want them to go outside and get some exercise. Now there’s a solution you both can love and enjoy. Active video games encourage players to get off the couch and burn calories.

Relaxation Basket. The holidays can be stressful so create a home spa basket with essential oils, bath salts, bath bombs, massage oil, body lotions and a pumice stone. Relaxation and stress relief are important for overall good health.
Bike, scooter, rollerblades.  These active toys are a great way for kids and adults to get exercise. You don’t have to spend a lot of money either, check out thrift stores or second- hand shops. They often have good bikes or scooters that might need just a little work. Don’t forgot to include a helmet!

Healthy cookbooks. How about a new cookbook that includes healthy recipes — maybe one with healthy soups, salads, vegetable sides dishes, whole grains or whole grain breads.
Subscription to a magazine. Consider giving a year subscription to a magazine. There are several magazines that offer healthy recipes and tips, as well as magazines that focus on physical activity (biking, hiking, running, etc.) and relaxation.

This holiday season you can give your loved ones the gift of health!
