Because relaxing is vital for good health, calming candles are the perfect gift for anyone. Truly's Natural Products carries premier candles that only carry the good stuff. Made with coconut wax and essential oils, these candles have zero artificial fragrances. And because of its natural coconut wax, a heavenly scent is released 24-7, even when the wick isn’t burning.
6. Filtered Water Bottle
Every active person has a go-to water bottle and you can quickly make your gift a Christmas fav by giving them one with its own filter. This kills two birds with one stone, keeping your loved one in the zone and away from worry when they're on the go and don’t have access to a home filter. Great for workouts or travel. Here's a solid list of recommendations by Mashable.
7. Wireless Headphones
Music is a gym-junkie’s BFF, so they're always looking for a way to keep the tunes flowing. Since the best headphones are the ones you forget you're wearing, wireless has taken over. Beats by Dre - Powerbeats3 are a favorite, but there are plenty of economical options from Skullcandy and Walmart is having a great sale on these! An added bonus? You'll come to mind every time they jam out.
8. Athletic Socks
The days of your grandmother disappointing you with boring ole socks are over. Runners LOVE their athletic socks and you'll be one step ahead by gifting them these
Thorlos Experia Micro Mini-Crew. They're thicker than normal and provide great protection for long runs. For a lower-cost version, Danskin Ultralite NoShow still delivers and can be found here at Walmart.com
9. Fitness Membership/Classes
For the right person, a membership or package of workout classes make a spectacular gift. Memberships are often something folks want but won’t invest in for themselves. Be delicate though, a gym/health membership of any kind is a personal gift and should only be given to your closest friends/family who have expressed genuine interest.
10. Fruit Basket
Order online or make your own! The Dollar General, The Dollar Tree and Walmart have inexpensive baskets perfect for presentation. Throw some clear gift wrap in the bottom and fill that puppy up with fresh fruit and (optional) nuts. Your loved ones will be grateful there’s one less temptation lying around and they’ll be excited for a healthy snack! If you prefer to order, Harry&David make gorgeous baskets for various budgets or call your nearest gift shop.
