Christmas Gift Ideas for Your Health Conscious Friends

Christmas is right around the corner, and now is the time to start thinking of gifts you’re going to buy.  It can be a lot of work finding the right gift for your health conscious friends, and a great gift to give is something that friend will find useful.

When you’re looking for gift ideas, you usually consider the personality of the recipient. This gives you a few clues as to what type of gifts to give. Finding gifts for health conscious people can be a challenge. They may have so many restrictions like no sweets, no drinking alcohol and soda, so a food oriented present may not be the best idea.

What else could you give them this coming holiday season?

Christmas gift ideas that work well for health conscious people:

  • Yoga matA mat can be very useful for people who love to exercise. They use it for yoga, for stretching, for doing some weight training and more. A colorful and high quality yoga mat can be a great gift!
  • Exercise equipment – Have you heard your husband talking about wanting some exercise equipment in the house so he doesn’t need to go to the gym? A treadmill or other home exercise equipment would make a great gift!
  • Towels – You can never go wrong with giving towels as gifts to those who love to hit the gym.
  • Stop watch – Another essential thing for exercise routines especially those who love running, biking or swimming.
  • Health supplements – If the giftee is trying to bulk up or taking supplements, why not create a gift basket with some of their faves like protein powder or whey?
  • Cookbook – Is your friend trying out a new healthy eating program? Is she into Paleo diet or is she hoping to go gluten-free? Giving her a cookbook about her diet is definitely a great gift idea for her.
  • Running shoes –A great pair of running shoes makes a great gift if you know the person’s size. Add some comfortable socks that will keep your friend’s feet warm and comfortable in your newly given shoes.
  • Gym bag – A new gym bag is always nice! Who doesn’t want one?

Not only will your health conscious friend appreciate a gift that fits with his or her lifestyle, but they will love the fact that you took the time to really think about a gift that fits them well. Besides, it is the thought that always counts?

    These are some good ideas. Never thought about a gym bag but I have a friend that goes often and probably could use a new one
