10 healthy gift ideas and tips

Before you go to the store or buy healthy gifts online, make sure your loved one really wants one. Sometimes giving a gift related to diet or exercise can send the wrong message. Ask your friends or co-workers (or just ask your loved one directly) to make sure your gift doesn’t take you to the dog’s house.

Coaching application for smartphones

You may not be able to afford to give your loved one a personal trainer to coach them through daily workouts, but you can probably afford an app that does the same. If your friend or family member is a runner (or hopes to become one), consider offering  Charge  , a running app that provides live training, motivation, and a library of workouts. The app costs less than $ 10 per month or around $ 85 per year. There are  other applications and services online  that provide a variety of trainings at a variety of prices.

Specific sports footwear

Unfortunately, many athletes wear the wrong type of footwear for their workouts. And other athletes don’t change their shoes often enough to maintain optimal foot health. (Vionic’s podiatrist,  Dr. Jacqueline Sutera,  explains that you can tell if your shoes need to be replaced by placing them on a table and checking for wear in the heel area).

You’ll be doing your loved one a favor by giving them new shoes for their chosen sport. Are you a spinning enthusiast? Consider a walkable cycling shoe like the  Vella for women from Bontrager  . Has your love started a new running or walking program? Take a look at  New Balance’s Fresh Foam collection  that provides precision comfort and a lightweight feel or FlyteFoam technology built into Asics running shoes. Both brands make shoes that come in a variety of widths and styles to suit different needs.

If your friend or family member participates in different types of activities, check out  Ryka  ,  Vionic  and  HOKA ONE ONE shoes  that are designed to make your feet  look  and feel great.

Fitness experience at the destination

If you are on a budget that allows for a more forgiving gift, consider gifting an active vacation. Brands like  Trek  ,  Butterfield and Robinson  and  Backroads  offer organized bike and multisport trips. Or groups like  Active at Altitude  that offer training camps for runners. You can also choose a destination and create your own experience. Find a  marathon or running race in a tropical destination like Jamaica  or a Vacation Races event   in one of our national parks. Then book a hotel and  regale  some  Skyhours  to help cover your loved one to be the cost of the trip.

Cookbooks

If your loved one has decided to change his eating habits,  a good cookbook  may be the best gift you can give him. Books provide nutritional guidance and can encourage you to eat new and interesting foods. When you buy the book, think about how your loved one might use it. Sometimes an e-reader version is better if your loved one is often tech-savvy. But others prefer to keep a printed copy in their kitchen or workspace.

If you’re looking for something more experimental, check out the classes at your local cooking store. Many classes cover specific techniques such as healthy grilling, meal preparation, or soups and stews.

Kitchen tools

Eating right is so much easier when you can  prepare healthy meals at home  . But for many busy people, cooking takes too long. However, there are useful kitchen utensils that make it easy to prepare healthy meals. small kitchen grill  , for example, is the perfect gift for someone who doesn’t have room for an outdoor grill. If your loved one likes to  make healthy smoothies  , a high-quality blender can make a great gift. On a budget? An inexpensive small kitchen scale usually costs less than $ 30. Crock pots and air fryers are also popular healthy cooking gadgets.

Meal Prep Set

If the lady or man in your life is one of the many healthy eaters who preps meals ahead of time, then an inexpensive meal prep set will be greatly appreciated. For example, an  inexpensive meal prep set from Fitlosophy  sells for just $ 24.95 and can help your loved one get organized and stay organized in the kitchen. You will find options made of glass and plastic from different brands.

Water bottle

Water bottle technology has made this gift (almost) a luxury item. Bottles of water from brands like S’well can sell for almost $ 100 or more. But you will find options for much less. Other popular brands include Contigo, kleen kanteen, and bKr, which are made from glass, plastic, or stainless steel.

Indoor Bike Trainer

If the athlete in your life loves spinning classes or riding outdoors, but can’t always find time to get on the saddle, consider giving them an indoor bike trainer. These handy folding devices allow you to mount your bike outdoors indoors at your convenience. Trainers can range from $ 150 to $ 300 or more for brands like CycleOps or Blackburn. But they are much less expensive than many of the home spinning bikes that have hit the market.

Meal delivery service

If cooking at home isn’t convenient, perhaps the loved one in your life would appreciate a meal delivery service. If you want to  choose the best meal delivery service  , you will need to ask questions and gather information. But  the most popular healthy food delivery plans  make eating a nutritious diet simple and more effective. Keep in mind that many diet delivery services require a monthly sign-up commitment to get free delivery, so be sure to read the fine print before you buy.

Fitness tracker

 Today’s best  activity tracker or fitness tracker works more like a smartwatch and less like a training tool. The devices often track calories burned, daily steps, sleep quality, and other metrics that can simplify healthy living, such as heart rate zones, sleep quality, and even hormonal cycles. Others help  control  stress levels or posture throughout the day.

Por ejemplo, Ionic y Versa 2 de Fitbit te permiten escuchar tus canales de Pandora u otra música sin la molestia de llevar tu teléfono. Ambos dispositivos tienen bandas extraíbles para que pueda personalizar el aspecto del reloj con diferentes estilos. Y el nuevo Charge 3 ofrece un diseño elegante, deportivo pero personalizable.

Los dispositivos de marcas como Polar (incluido el Ignite resistente al agua estilo reloj con GPS integrado) y los dispositivos de Garmin tienden a ser populares entre los atletas multideporte.

Consulte todas las opciones antes de invertir. Considere si su ser querido querrá usarlo mientras nada o se baña, y las diferentes aplicaciones descargables que podría usar.

Mind and body services

If you prefer to give an experience rather than a wrapped item, consider giving a massage or meditation experience. There is  evidence  that services like these can help improve weight loss, lower blood pressure, and provide other health benefits. Not sure which experience would be the most appreciated? A spa gift certificate allows you to choose the most indulgent treatment or service. Or apps like  Zeel  allow you to arrange for a massage therapist to come to your home.
