5 Great Wellness Gifts for the New Year

The hustle and bustle of the gift-giving season is here and we’re willing to bet there’s at least one hard-to-shop-for person on your list. Perhaps they’re incredibly practical or have a very precise taste in gifts. Whatever the case may be, we believe that the best gift you can give is something that encourages healthy choices. We’ve put together a list of our favorite wellness gifts to cover everyone on your list.

1. Blender bottle please
Got a friend who is always on the go? A blender bottle is the perfect gift to help squeeze in breakfast on a busy morning or get the protein in on the way to the gym. Round out the gift with a new or seasonally flavored protein powder or an insulated lunch bag, or both! You’re giving the gift that will be appreciated year-round.

2. Upgrade the earbuds
There is nothing worse than uncomfortable earbuds or headphones, especially when you’re working out. A quality set of earbuds can go a long way toward keeping motivation and intensity up during a grueling workout.

3. Coconut oil spa kit
Coconut oil is the multi-tasker of the health and beauty world. Give the gift of a DIY salon and spa day. Just package your favorite coconut oil with other beauty and relaxation supplies such as a hair wrap, bath bombs, and a fresh-smelling scented candle.

4. Mindfulness calendar
We could all use a reminder to slow down and breathe once in a while. Whether or not your loved one meditates, a mindfulness calendar can bring the gift of calm and serenity to their life.

5. Meal prep containers
We know it isn’t the flashiest gift, but we’re hard-pressed to come up with anyone on our lists who doesn’t want to simplify their meal prep process. These containers make prepping food and packing lunches a snap, and they encourage healthier eating habits.
