Heading into this uncommon Christmas, it’s increasingly important to make those special connections from a distance. Due to a global pandemic, many of us will forgo travelling to see our loved ones. With all of the negativity and stress surrounding us, and New Year’s coming soon, you may start to see more people around you focusing on improving their health and wellbeing. Here are some great ideas for simple gifts that you can get to help support their goals.
I would feel bad if I didn’t make a post helping out everyone when Christmas is just around the corner! For this list, I found things that are handy, economical, and fit in a box. I also made sure to find products that are always needed.

I don’t know about you, but I always need a new shaker bottle. Being small and inexpensive, these are the perfect gift for almost anyone. Essential for any gym bag, and common for the non gym-goer, you’re unlikely to go wrong with a shaker bottle.
These shaker bottles by Performa are beautifully designed, and come with a variety of motivational quotes. They’re also economically priced and currently on sale!
Wrist weights are great for anyone working out in the gym or at home this holiday season. Meant to take workouts to the next level, they provide an increase to your workout intensity. They’re great for exercise videos, especially if you’re obsessed with Turbo Jam or boxing like myself. Generally, wrist weights come in 0.5lb, 1lb, and 2lb heaviness. You can also get ankle weights if you want to go all out!
This pair by Fila has thumb loops for extra security during intense workouts. I have a 1lb pair just like these, and don’t find that they bother my hands or annoy me in any way.
Another tool for working out at home. Although they’re called “yoga mats,” you can use them for so much more than yoga. They’re handy for countless floor workouts, from sit-ups to Pilates to stretches. A durable, thick yoga mat can save anyone’s back while they’re working out their abs.
Can’t decide which one to get? This mat by Toplus is made to be non-slip, eco-friendly, and comes in a variety of colours. They’re also currently on sale.
This one’s pretty obvious…but always an appreciated gift. Gift cards are an awesome way to save on sending gifts, because you can send them with a letter! Buy a Christmas card with a gift card slot, it’ll show you were thinking of them.
These gift cards from Amazon come with adorable gift boxes and ornaments, and come in denominations of $25-$2000.
In the end, no matter what you get for your loved ones this Christmas, they’ll know that you were thinking of them. That’s all that really matters, right? Letting them know that you care for them and their wellbeing? Even if money’s tight this year, just give them a call! They’ll appreciate it.
That being said, do you have any special plans for Christmas this year? I’d love to hear them!
