We all have that health-conscious person in our lives who tries to adopt good habits and even encourage others to do the same. However, when their birthday or holiday is around the corner, you dread that finding perfect gifts for them will be hard.
It can, to be honest, since their way of life is not a trend or a spur of the moment, but their dedication to improving themselves.
This is a lot to process sometimes since the pressure of resisting temptation is not easy in a world full of stress, chaotic schedule, and unhealthy behaviors.
To show your friend you support them, we have prepared 12 creative gifts that will surely put a smile on their face.
Creative Gift Ideas for the Health-Conscious Person
A trusty water bottle
It’s recommended to have 6–8 glasses of water every day, but who can keep the track all the time?! This is why a water bottle for your health-conscious person is an inspiring gift that will keep them on track.
You can make it more fun by buying ones with printed supportive messages or level indicators so they would know how much they drank during the day.
However, stir away from plastic water bottles and go for stainless steel. Plastic is bad for health and the environment, so your friend probably won’t be excited about getting one of those.
A soft and comfy leggings
Yoga leggings are a considerate gift because it’s comfortable, flattering, and perfect for physical activities. While they have “yoga” in their name, your friend can use them for any other exercise they prefer.
They are stretchy and allow freedom of movement intended to provide the maximum flexibility to the wearer. Whether they work out at home, outside, or at the gym, this is a great way to show that you noticed their efforts to improve their health.
A gym membership
Sometimes creative gifts are there to encourage someone who decided to go down the healthier path. One of the most inspiring ways to support them is by getting them a gym membership in one of the best-reviewed training centers.
See if anyone else would like to participate so you can include a personal trainer in the gift and more than one month of membership. However, this may be a delicate matter.
If your health-conscious person has problems with self-esteem and you buy them a gym membership, you may insult them. Otherwise, this is a thoughtful way to show you support for your friend.
An amazing blender
Diet is the key to a healthy lifestyle so your friend is probably always trying new recipes and ingredients. However, if they don’t have time to properly prepare the meals, they might skip a few or stop by a fast-food restaurant at times.
A blender and the one that can blend anything, like ice and nuts, will give them an option to have a smoothie for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. These wonderful drinks are more than beverages since they commonly include ingredients with high levels of protein, fresh vegetables, and fruits. Add a recipe book to the blender packaging so your friend can start mixing something the moment they plug it in.
A natural cosmetic product
Natural cosmetic products are everywhere, but it’s best to always read a label before buying. Look for those that are vegan which means the manufacturer doesn’t perform animal testing, and without chemicals, like sulfates, mineral oils, parabens, etc.
This clean beauty is not only for health-conscious people, but everyone who wants an eco-friendly and safer product. A bath bomb, fruity shampoo, or refreshing shower gel are nice gifts for someone who cares what their skin comes in contact with.
An idea: turn it into a gift basket with more products in the smaller packages so your friend can have fun trying different brands and scents.
A sleep mask
There’s no healthy life without a good night’s sleep. For this reason, something as simple as a sleep mask may be worth as the most expensive gifts in the world.
Choose a mask made from natural material and with a print that is both funny and supportive. While you at it, get yourself one since everyone should wear them and enjoy a restless sleep.
A healthy lifestyle log
Also called a wellness journal, a log for keeping track of healthy choices and challenges is a great way to see what fits and what doesn’t. Moreover, it can serve as a reminder to try new things or provide a motivational quote when the energy is low.
Include a couple of colorful pens when buying your friend a healthy lifestyle log so they can outline different goals, plans, and achievements in their weekly and monthly organizer.
A wireless headphone set
The power of music is vast. It can normalize blood pressure, lower heart rate, increase serotonin, dopamine, and endorphins (feel-good hormones), and decrease cortisol levels (stress hormone).
For someone who is health-conscious giving, them a wireless headphone set may be a wonderful way to support all these benefits. There are no annoying cables that get entangled or damaged during use, so you have already eliminated a bit of stress from your friend’s life! Not to mention they can keep their hands warm in the colder weather and free while training outdoors.
A hands-free leash
One of the most thoughtful gifts is a hands-free leash so your friend can easily go on a run with their dog. This nifty invention is perfect for dog lovers who prefer fast-walking or just taking a stroll around the block with their pup.
It has a belt that goes around the waist and the leash is then attached to it, so both hands are free. Look for a model with a pouch that can fit a phone, treats, and other items your friend and their dog might need during the run.
A wellness gift
Eliminating stress and relaxing is also part of a healthy lifestyle, so opting for a wellness gift might be a splendid idea. Think down the lines of easy-to-use neck massager that your health-conscious person can take at work, or use at home every day.
For someone spending the whole day in a sedentary position, this would release the tension in muscles and relieve pain from slouching. Add a tea sampler into the mix so they can sip a cup of nice herbal tea while sitting in the chair and having a neck massage.
An oxygen-producing plant
All plants produce oxygen, but some do it more than others. Some plants even can purify the air from pollutants and dangerous chemicals, like toluene, formaldehyde, xylene, and benzene.
Gerbera Daisy, for example, is a decorative plant with vibrant colors and big flowers, but can also improve sleep by producing lots of oxygen at night. Snake plant is one of those you have to water once a month and occasionally fertilize, but it will give your friend plenty of clean air.
A smart jump rope
For those people in your life who want to introduce more physical activity but don’t have a lot of time, a smart jump rope is a perfect gift.
It monitors physical activity and records the results in an app, just like a pedometer does. However, with a jump rope, they can keep a separate count and add one more activity to make things interesting and more motivating.
Creative gifts are challenging, but once you know what someone wants or likes, you can easily find the right one. A health-conscious person in your life can always use something that will show your support and encourage them to stay loyal to their new lifestyle. It might even inspire you to improve your habits, as well!
