Still looking for that perfect gift for someone special? Why not give them the gift of health this year – it is priceless! Here is a short round up of some healthy gifts for 2013!
1. The Tea Lover:
Know someone that just loves a good cup of tea? Or perhaps someone that is wanting to cut back on coffee and try tea instead? Then these are the perfect gift ideas in a wide range of prices!
First of all, if they are still using those tea bags – it is time to introduce them to loose leaf tea. A wise man in China town once told me that drinking tea made from tea bags is like ordering a hot dog at a steakhouse.” The whole tea leaf is the way to go, and contains more nutrients. I also prefer to use organic tea, because as the Food Babe recently revealed, non-organic tea can end up creating a cup of pesticides!
Here are some perfect gift ideas for your tea connoisseur:
2. The World Traveler:
Does someone on your list travel a lot? Traveling can be really hard on our health – because it can mean poor sleep, unhealthy meals, and digestion troubles. Putting together a nice little collection of single serve sized healthy products can help your weary traveler be healthier on the road.
Sleep is very important for overall health, just 1 night of poor sleep can negatively impact our metabolism and increase our hunger the next day. But traveling from coast to coast can put a wrinkle in the best laid plans for a good night of shut-eye. Support their sleep with:
Or maybe they work so much and have to run from cab to train to airplane – with no time for a meal? Send a few things that they can pop into a water bottle for a quick and healthy snack or a meal replacement:
3. For the Home Chef that has everything or newly gluten or grain free:
Is there someone in your life that just went gluten or grain free? Or maybe they are a serious home chef that has everything? Then they might like a snazzy new kitchen tool, or some high quality infused oils, aged vinegars and exotic spices?
4. The Smoothie Lover or Picky Eater:
Great for families with picky eaters, or people just trying to get healthier! I love smoothies and have them most mornings. But if you want to make the best Superfood smoothies, you have to have the right tools:
5. The Microwave-Avoider.
Okay, I know this is not the most glamorous gift – and in days past, I might be disappointed to open up a toaster oven…but have you seen them lately? They are cool, and this one from Waring even comes with the slots for toast on the side in case you might miss that! It is on my list this year – because I don’t like to heat things in the microwave, and a toaster oven is a great way to reheat something. It also is a nice way to cook something in the Summer months when you don’t want to heat up the oven.
