This year, the average American adult plans to spend just under $1,000 on Christmas presents. And while giving gifts is the quintessential way to embrace the spirit of the holidays, a thoughtful and creative gift that shows your heart and your appreciation for the person doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. In this gift guide, we’ll share thoughtful gift ideas that are perfect for the season. Best of all? Many of these thoughtful gift ideas also give the gift of health to your friends and loved ones, encouraging them to live healthier, stronger, happier lives.

Thoughtful Gift Ideas That Are Good For Your Wallet and Good For Their Health

With the holiday season in full swing, it’s time to start thinking of the perfect gifts for our loved ones. While the usual suspects like clothing, books, and electronics are always popular, why not choose something a little different this year? Instead of reaching for a sugary treat or a processed snack, why not give your friends and family a thoughtful gift that will help them stay on track with their health goals this winter? Here are some creative, healthy Christmas gifts that they’ll love!

1. Healthy Snacks

Instead of giving them something loaded with sugar and empty calories, why not give them something that is actually good for them?

There are plenty of delicious snacks available today made from natural ingredients and free from artificial flavors and preservatives. You can find healthy options like granola bars, dried fruit chips, nut mixes, protein bars and more.

Not only do these make great stocking stuffers but they’re also sure to be appreciated by your gift recipient.

2. Fitness Trackers

The holiday season is often associated with overeating, sitting on the couch, and excessive drinking, so why not get someone a fitness tracker so they can keep track of their activity levels? This is a great way to encourage someone to stay active even when faced with all those Christmas treats! In fact, numerous studies have found that fitness trackers help to motivate all of us to be more physically active.

Fitness trackers come in all shapes and sizes so you’ll be sure to find one that fits your budget, as well as the style and preferences of your friends or loved ones. Plus there are lots of new models coming out every year so you’re sure to find one that fits your needs. There are even low-tech options such as water bottles that help to measure consumption and keep you hydrated during busy times, good old-fashioned pen and paper journaling and lots more.

3. Herbal Teas

Tea is always a welcome gift during the holidays because it helps you relax after long days of shopping or running errands. But instead of giving them regular black tea or green tea bags, why not get them herbal teas instead? Herbal teas are naturally caffeine-free and contain plenty of antioxidants which can help boost immunity during cold winter months.

There are many unique flavors available such as chamomile, peppermint, ginger root or hibiscus flower teas which make great stocking stuffers or gift basket additions.

Premium supplements can also be a great stocking stuffer! If your friends or loved ones care about their immune system, slip a box of BioPro-Plus 500 into their presents! Through a gentle biological process, the thymic proteins in BioPro-Plus 500 — varying from 10,000 to 50,000 Daltons — are derived from Certified BSE free, bovine thymus cells, and then purified as intact bio-molecules which have maximum biological activity. Additionally, Zinc Gluconate has been clinically proven to shorten the duration of infection from the common cold virus. Combined with 10 PPM nano silver solution, BioPro-Plus 500 is how to boost your immune system!

4. The Gift of Time

  • Walking their dog
  • Cleaning their house
  • Shoveling snow off of their driveway
  • Babysitting their children so they can go out for precious alone time, date night or shopping
  • A healthy homecooked meal

This holiday season, don’t forget about the importance of gifting healthy items! From tasty snacks to fitness trackers to herbal teas and supplements, there are plenty of creative, healthy, and thoughtful gift ideas out there that will be appreciated by everyone on your list this Christmas! So why not step away from the traditional presents this year and give something unique yet meaningful that will truly benefit your loved one’s health, too?
