Have you thought of any healthy gift ideas for the holidays?
Surveys show that the majority of Americans are trying to get healthy.
Among 1,012 adults polled in one survey by biotechnology company Gelesis, “feeling healthier” was the highest priority, followed closely by losing weight.
In another recent survey, 28 percent of respondents said they make a conscious effort to get healthy every day, with 43 percent focusing on healthy eating, 42 percent on regular exercise, and 41 percent on taking time for themselves.
You can’t go wrong with giving loved ones gifts that will help boost their health and well-being. To make your shopping easier, we have some great ideas below.

Help your loved one to de-stress this holiday with the Pursoma Digital Detox Bath Treatment. It’s made for those who spend all day on their digital devices and then perhaps have trouble sleeping.

Made with French Grey Sea Salt to remineralize the body and Green Clay to pull out urban toxicity. Also helps aid in deep pore cleansing and mega skin hydration.
With more and more people working from home, there’s been an increased need for ergonomic office chairs. While sitting on a balance ball to work at a computer can be a challenge, this balance stool makes it easier while still providing improved posture, circulation, and a bit of a core workout. It can adjust from an 18-inch to a 23-inch desk, so it works for most home offices.
These colorful cards contain short mindfulness exercises that your loved one can do at any time of the day or night. They don’t cost much, but they can make it easy to bring awareness, calm, and joy to everyday life. Each card includes an inspiring phrase on the front and a bite-size mindfulness exercise on the back.
If you know someone who suffers from regular anxiety or depression—or who simply could use a little soothing comfort—a weighted blanket might be the perfect gift. Studies suggest they can help ease symptoms of anxiety while promoting relaxation. There are several different kinds available in a variety of materials and colors. Layla Sleep has a nice, soft one.
This wellness box is the perfect gift for anyone who’s going through cancer treatments during the holiday season. Non-toxic, safe, and effective, it helps reduce the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation while helping to clear the body and mind of negativity and stress.
The box includes the following:
- 4 CV Skinlabs products to provide calming, moisturizing, soothing, and healing benefits to the skin.
- A guided meditation CD from Health Journeys (your choice of chemotherapy or radiation).
Gift your loved one the gift of pure water with this special filtering water bottle. It includes built-in filtration to reduce more than 20 common tap water contaminants such as lead, chlorine, pesticides, hormones, and pharmaceuticals. It’s made of stainless steel so you won’t be exposed to dangerous plastics either.
The receiver will be able to go green, save money, and enjoy tasty water all at the same time!
Gift the gift of healthy eating made easily with Daily Harvest. They ship whole food, plant-based harvest bowls, smoothies, flatbreads, soups, and even sweets to your loved one’s door. Great for those who enjoy healthy eating but don’t have the time to cook.
Standard perfumes and colognes often contain chemical fragrances and phthalates that aren’t good for you. For that health-conscious person who loves to smell good but prefers not to be exposed to toxins, try these clean fragrances from Summer Hours. They’re environmentally friendly and inspired by nature, using clean ingredients that are vegan, cruelty-free, and safe. This sample set includes four travel-size fragrances. They have candles too.
Anyone who’s 40 and over, who’s been diagnosed with high blood pressure, or who has a family history of heart disease will benefit from having one of these. They’re economical and effective and can help the person keep an eye on their blood pressure without having to run to the doctor’s or pharmacy all the time.
Keep in mind that monitors using upper-arm cuffs are more accurate than around-the-wrist cuffs. Find a list of quality products at Forbes.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that indoor air pollution is worse than outdoors. Give the gift of fresh-smelling air with these air-purifying bags. They remove odors from the home, office, garage, car, gym, or anywhere else the air needs a little freshening.
Rather than use chemicals (like so many conventional air fresheners do), these purifying bags employ natural Moso bamboo charcoal. They don’t just mask bad smells but eliminate odors and harmful air particles entirely. You can even “recharge” the bags by placing them in direct sunlight for an hour each month. 100 percent organic and chemical-free.
If you haven’t been getting enough sleep lately, try this white noise sound machine. It effectively masks any noise that may be disturbing you by creating soothing ambient sounds of rushing air. The light and portable design means you can take it anywhere with you, even when traveling over the holidays.
Choose from bright white noise, deep white noise, or gentle surf, then set the volume you prefer. Great for soothing kids, babies, and pets too!
