The holidays are a time where we show our love and appreciation to the people we care about. One of the most common ways we show our appreciation is by gifting food, especially sweets like chocolates, cookies, and various pastries. But as you may notice, you start to accumulate so much of it all over the holiday season. It is also easier to over indulge in treats because of how easily accessible they are to you, but excessive sweets aren’t ideal for anyone. We have come up with 5 healthy gift ideas for Christmas to leave your loved ones feeling great.
Locally Grown Goods
Support your local businesses this holiday season by gifting people with a healthy gift basket/box from the Holland Marsh Farmer’s Market. This year they have
introduced their Ontario “Eats” Winter Share Produce Box. Each produce box will include a selection of Holland Marsh veggies such as carrots, onions, potatoes, garlic, lettuce, spinach, peppers, tomatoes and more. It will also include Ontario fruits such as apples, pears, and strawberries. They also offer pick up OR delivery options! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details!
Exercise accessories and equipment is an excellent choice for a healthy gift! Motivate your loved ones to exercise more often by gifting them work out clothing that suits their style, or get them a nice shaker water bottle for either water or protein shakes! You can also find reasonably priced accessories such as resistance bands, ankle weights, dumbbells etc.
A great healthy gift to give to someone is a wellness experience! A yoga gift card is a great option (and they’re offered at Kinnect Studio). Our yoga instructor, Nicole Allison, provides a variety of yoga classes including private yoga. Check out our yoga programs here.
A spa day is also a great healthy gift idea! There are tons of gift certificates available for spas near you. Salt caves are also great for relaxing and healing.
Floating has also become a popular wellness experience. Floating involves lying in 10 inches of epsom salt water inside of a float tank. It is a spacious “pod” where there is no gravity, touch, light, or sound. This is excellent for healing and de-stressing. Check out Float Tank Barrie to learn more.
Do-it-yourself gifts are always great gift ideas. A great healthy gift idea is creating your own gift basket filled with wellness supplies! Fill your gift basket with epsom salts, aromatherapy candles, herbal teas, essential oils, the possibilities are endless. Most of these items can be purchased at your local supermarket.
Give some of that stress away! The holidays are such a busy time of year, we often find household chores to be quite the task. Why not gift your loved ones with a laundry service? Soapbox Laundry Services will pick up your laundry, wash it, and deliver it back to your home/business within 24 hours! Contact Nathalie Beaubien for more details at email@example.com!
You can also gift someone a cleaning service to come clean their home after the busy holidays! There are many local companies that will clean your home.
