Simple Gifts for the Health Nut in Your Life

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.

Simple Gifts

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.

Shaker Bottle

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

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.

Yoga Mat

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.

Gift Cards

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!

That’s it for now everyone. If you’ve found some value in this post, please share it so others can be inspired too! Also, subscribe for more at the top of my site’s sidebar. Thanks!

    “During Christmas of 2020 under the threat of COVID-19 makes the gift card the best choice
    we don’t have to exchange when everyone will not be satisfied with their given gift
    as Gift cards fit all sizes and desires will comply with social distances where
    we want have to take a trip to the mall under the gift exchange process.”

    I love these shaker bottles!

    • Ang

      Right? They’re super cute

    Love these ideas especially the wrist weights – did not know those exist. They would make weight training more fun and maybe a lil easier!

    I’d also consider – maybe a month of online/in person home workout sessions with a professional for someone really serious about working out at home.

      I’m a huge fan of my wrist weights. That’s also a great idea 🙂

    I would love for someone to buy me wrist weights and more shaker bottles. You can never have enough shaker bottles 😅

    • Ang

      So true!

  5. Toma Ruh

    Really loving these! Would like to get a yoga mat myself hihi!

    • Ang

      They’re nice aren’t they? I have one but it’s a bit thinner so I fold it for ab workouts. Maybe I’ll get one of these for Christmas 😉
