BEST GIFTS FOR THE HEALTH AND WELLNESS ENTHUSIAST
Let’s start with the hardest friend to buy for – the best gifts for the health and wellness enthusiast/junkie. These gifts are for someone who is wellness minded. They may eat healthy all the time, they have a workout schedule that they absolutely do not break, they only partake in activities that help them reach their goals, and whenever you talk to them the topic consistently revolves around fitness, food, and all things HEALTH! So, what do you get these peeps? Here are some of the top health and wellness gift ideas:
Workout Tools –
The obvious, right? These tools don’t have to be expensive and they are pretty creative. They are small and easy to travel with. They don’t cost a fortune but are some of the most necessary (and handy) tools to have in the “toolbox” of fitness and wellness. Getting a loved one (or even yourself) workout tools will help keep workouts intense, creative, and motivating.
Stocking Stuffers –
Does anyone else here feel like stocking stuffers are sometimes the hardest things to find? Ugh! I mean, it’s hard to find a great gift, that doesn’t break the bank, and that is actually going to be loved by the receiver. But not when it comes to the wellness junkie in your life! Some of the best fitness products are the smallest ones you can find! Just like workout tools they can keep workouts intense, creative, and motivating. Who would have thunk it?!
Yes, you can buy food for the wellness enthusiast in your life as a gift. (Am I the only one who gets people food for Christmas???) There are a few things you may want to keep in mind as you search for the best food gift: The food gift needs to be relatively healthy and something you think your friend or loved one would actually love, and you need to make sure there aren’t any food allergies to be concerned about.
YES! I love this idea! This might sound expensive but I promise you – subscriptions or memberships for the health enthusiast in your life does not have to be! What’s great about these types of gifts is that it gives your loved one an option to try something they never have before. It also may just give them the boost of motivation they have been needing!
So without further ado – here are some of the best wellness gifts on amazon to date!
You know one of the main ingredients for a “TOP 15” list of health and wellness gift ideas includes TOOLS! As any fitness buff or wellness junkie – having the right tools is a must! Yes, some tools can be expensive but there are also lots of fitness tools that are very inexpensive and multi-functional. Now that, my friend, is a win-win! Here are some of my must haves:
Resistance Bands –
This simple item has so many uses for the health and wellness enthusiast. Plus it’s one of the hottest and cheapest fitness gifts you could think of. I love the Letsfit bands because they come in a pack of 5, they have a carrying case, and each band is a different strength! How cool is that?! Get these for your wellness junkie friend, they will love you forever!
Another cheap fitness gift but soooo beneficial! Sliders can be used in a multitude of ways and, like the resistance bands, are small and simple. The synergee Core Sliders are great because they come in different colors and they can be used on many different surfaces. You can’t go wrong when you get these for your fitness friend!
Muscle Roller –
If you know anything about fitness junkies – you know that they all have one thing in common – sore muscles! You cannot go wrong with the Elite Massage Muscle Roller. It’s compact, comes in all sorts of colors, and will be loved (and hated…I’m sure) by your wellness enthusiast friends and family. This muscle roller gets into those tense muscles and provides much needed myofascial release. This gift will definitely change his or her game of fitness!
Wellness Planner –
I am in love with this planner! The Life & Apples wellness planner offers so much in such a little package. It is definitely one of the best wellness gifts I have found on Amazon. It offers a gratitude focus, positive thoughts focus, fitness activities for each day, a notes section, meal planning, and a daily wellness tracker. These are only a few things in the planner. Giving this planner as a gift will definitely help your loved one stay on track and keep motivated – especially through the holiday season!
Cheap fitness gifts do not have to be cheesy or low quality. Some of the best wellness gifts on Amazon come with a lower price tag – believe it or not. Aren’t stocking stuffers some of the hardest things to shop for? That’s no longer the case. Here are some of my favorite health and wellness gift ideas for stuffers:
Exercise Cards –
These things are AWESOME!! I love the workout cards by NewMe Fitness. Workout cards are small (size of a larger card deck), easily transportable, never go out of style, and very inexpensive. NewMe Fitness provides different decks: Bodyweight, Dumbell, Yoga, and more!
Exercise Dice –
Kind of keeping with the same idea as the exercise cards, the SPRI Exercise Dice are also small, inexpensive, easy to carry when traveling, and keep your workouts interesting and ever-changing! This gift will be a sure-fire way to keep your wellness loving friend inspired!
Body Glide –
Need something a bit on the goofy side but still very much a needed gift? You got it, sister! I give to you Body Glide – The Original Anti-Chafe Balm. Hey, I know I am not the only one who gets those heat rashes in between the thighs, under the arms, and various other places. This little gem is one of the best health and fitness gifts for him…or her! Get sweaty and forget the rest!
Face and Body Wipes –
The perfect stocking stuffer for the wellness junkie to throw into his/her gym bag! I love the DUDE Face and Body Wipes! They are fragrance free (hello health nuts!!…yes, me too!!), they are hypoallergenic, alcohol-free, and have sea salt and aloe! Got a loved one who hits the gym before or in the middle of the work day? These will be a HUGE benefit for them to have!
If you didn’t know, let me fill you in. One of the top health and wellness gift ideas for Wellness junkies, fitness freaks, and health enthusiasts is…. FOOD! It just has to be the right food. Here are some products I’ve tried and tested and am willing to share the goodness with you!
Protein Bars –
The “go-to” snack of champions! I love a good quality protein bar. They don’t go bad, they travel easily, they have good macros, and they are delicious! The protein bar that hits all of these points and can be considered “quality”? Built bars, friend! And I just happen to have a code to get you 12% off! You’re welcome! PS – you can choose “build your box” and pick out different flavors to try!
Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides –
Yep, you read that right! I’m telling you – this stuff is miraculous and, bonus, ALL THE RAGE! It has many great benefits: tasteless, hydration for skin, helps skin stay elastic, nourishes bones and joins, and provides hair and nail support. Plus it has 18g of protein per serving – that’s speaking a wellness junkies love language. Get them Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides and I promise they will place a cape upon your back.
Meal Prep Containers –
Ok – so it’s not food per se but it’s up that alley. Meal prep containers are the most convenient and desired kitchen item on the market right now. This 20 pack will be the perfect Christmas Wellness Gift for him or her. These provide any wellness junkie a way to properly meal prep and feel organized and good about themselves. Why not give that feeling for Christmas? Oh – and they are BPA free, microwave, freezer, and dishwasher safe!
Fruit Basket –
I get it – it sounds cheesy but hear me out! Out of all the food we are around during the holidays we rarely come into contact with something that is actually healthy for us. We are typically surrounded by all the cream sauces, butter filled dishes, and desserts pumped up with excess sugar. When I receive a fruit basket during the holiday’s I am thrilled that someone would be so thoughtful of my eating habits. While it may not be the cheapest gift for the wellness junkie in your life – I promise it will be the best received!
This might be one of the last things thought about for a Christmas gift but I’m here to tell you – getting your loved one a membership or subscription service that supports their health and wellness journey will be the ultimate gift for this Christmas. When we get to try something we have always wanted to try on someone else’s dollar – now that is a gift! Here are some of my favorites:
Crowd Cow –
I love love love Crowd Cow and here’s why – with Crowd Cow you get to know which farm your meat is coming from (hello agricultural support!), how it is treated and fed (say goodbye to mystery meat and hormones), and you get to pick a selection that best fits you and your family! With Crowd Cow subscriptions you get to pick what cuts you want shipped, how often it is shipped, and you can cancel at anytime. Plus – you get $25 off your first order!
Fitbit Coach –
Fitbit Coach is one of my favorite memberships. Basically it’s an annual subscription for $39.99. You can use it on your Fitbit watch or on your smartphone. It’s a separate app from the fitbit app. It has different fitness programs for each level of fitness, you can pick your coach, workout anytime and anyplace, select the music you want to workout to, and it comes in different languages. This is one of those subscriptions that will keep the fitness junkie in your life “surprised” but in a good way!
Wellness Box –
Subscription boxes is something that has taken off like a wild-fire in the last few years. The Bar Bella Box is a wellness box that your fitness friend will adore! Inside you get anything from apparel, gear, accessories, snacks, workout tips, and more! With Bar Bella you can get a monthly plan, quarterly, or annual. The savings is more for the longer you subscribe for. And…you can cancel at anytime!
