Healthy Gift Ideas for Every Budget, According to a Doctor
Updated: Dec 22, 2022
Are you looking for healthy gift ideas? Well, look no further! As a board-certified family physician, here are my top pics for healthy gift ideas for every budget!
1) Weighted Blanket
Weighted blankets are DIVINE! (I know this from personal experience). Weighted blankets make you feel like you're getting a big hug due to the gentle pressure they apply. For many, weighted blankets ease anxiety and provide a sense of comfort. Here are some weighted blankets to check out.
Aromatherapy can help ease anxiety and provide calm for some. Many find aromatherapy relaxing and helpful for mental health (I love lavender, fyi). Consider getting your loved one an aromatherapy kit to try at home. If you're loved one isn't into aromatherapy you can consider spa products or skin moisturizers which can be just as indulgent. (Albeit not glamorous, you can shop my fav lotions here!)
3) Meditation/Wellness App
There are many AMAZING apps for health and wellness. Many of these apps have a cost. But, a great gift idea is to purchase a health/wellness app for your family member. Some of my favorite apps include Calm, 7 Cups App, and Headspace, among others.
4) Gym Membership
This is a bit of a splurge, but for the right person and the right budget, a gym membership can be a wonderful gift for your health-conscious loved one. Exercise provides numerous health benefits. If a gym membership isn't the right fit, consider purchasing personal training sessions for 1 month, 3 months, or whatever makes sense for you!
Smoothies are sooo yummy! Your health-conscious loved one might be itching to make delicious and healthy smoothies, so a blender might be just what the doctor orders! By the way, here are some tasty recipes I found on The Food Network. (Let me know if you try any of them!)
6) Motivational Workout Gear
It can be helpful to have motivational workout gear when you're working up a sweat. For this reason, I created motivational workout gear for you and your loved ones! Check out the collection here!
I hope these gift ideas are helpful! For additional healthy gift ideas, please take a peek at this video:
