Gift times are happy times and holiday gifts can be unique in a way that they not only promote your family’s health but can also be a lot of fun. You are the best advocate of your family’s health, so throw in some healthy gifts to encourage healthy habits, and keep the family motivated and inspired to shed the pounds and stay fit. Here are some great fun gift ideas to keep everyone in shape and in good spirits during the holiday season.
Pick from a range of fun exercise videos and give them to a member of the family who has resolved to start burning the extra pounds this holiday season but may need the motivation and inspiration to get going. Make it more fun by getting the entire family to join in. Yes, the toddler and grandparents included.
Entry to a dance class:
Give your wife a session in that belly dancing class her friends have been raving about. Or how about a tango session for couples or that salsa class, maybe good old jiving? What healthier way to ring in the holiday season than by spending some quality time with each other.
Fitness vacation: An adventurous vacation is a great family gift to stay fit together. Go trekking, rock climbing, skiing, white water rafting, cycling or kayaking. Do keep in mind the age group of your family members and also the skill levels while planning such a holiday.
Healthy cooking recipe books and gadgets:
Your daughter has been bitten by the health bug and is getting very particular about what goes into her meals. This holiday season, surprise her with some healthy cooking recipe books, juicers and blenders and encourage her to cook some healthy meals for the family.
Work out equipment:
Home workout equipment makes a great health gift for your family. Treadmills, steppers, exercise balls, jump ropes, trampoline etc. Why not a freestanding punching bag! Everyone gets to vent their frustration in a healthy manner, a good work out is guaranteed while the family learns some self-defense techniques by way of punches and kicks. Don’t forget to throw in a few colorful yoga mats so you can all stretch out after a good workout.
New toothbrushes and floss:
We all know that good oral health is an important part of good overall health, so give your family some fun new tools to keep them excited about brushing and flossing every day.
