You may have a health conscious friend or family member and wonder what to get them for Christmas. Or, you may be someone yourself who would like gifts that you can use but have run out of ideas on what to tell people. As a health nut and runner myself, my wallet is often empty due to expenses to keep up my hobbies, so any time someone gets me something I can truly use, I am appreciative! So feel free to send this blog link to friends and family!
1. Sport Bottle with Smoothie Machine. Oster makes one that gets great reviews and is only $25. This simplifies making a smoothie at your desk at work, or for quick on the go. You can blend or just use the water bottle and shake.
2. Books– Cook Books are always great. Just search on Amazon for healthy recipes, a favorite of mine is the Hungry Girl series. Bob Harper also has a book (pictured below). It doesn’t have to be a cook book though, there are many books about health and the food industry in general that are great. Some books I like are In The Defense of Food, Salt, Sugar & Fat, How the Food Giants Hooked Us, Fast Food Nation and Master Your Metabolism. Also, if the person you are buying for has a specific favorite sport like running, swimming, biking etc, there are endless options! Magazine subscriptions are great too, Men’s Health, Runners World, Shape etc.
3. Cooling towel. Here is one on Amazon. These are great for anyone who gets sweaty often!
4. Subscription to Bulu Box. For $10/month a box is shipped with new healthy products based on your preferences. You can buy anywhere from 1 month to 1 year at a time. Learn more here.
