If you are looking for a great gift for a friend or family member and want to avoid the typical high calorie gifts such as chocolate, cookies or candy, here are three great healthy gift ideas for you to consider.
Gift Baskets – Gift Baskets often contain sweet and calorie laden treats but they don’t have to! There are many healthy gift basket options that you could purchase or assemble yourself. Healthy gift baskets could include a basket or decorative storage container filled with healthy snacks, such as nuts, dried fruits and herbal teas, or with gourmet ingredients for a healthy meal. For someone who loves to exercise you could create a gift basket with small workout items such as resistance bands, weight-lifting gloves, a reusable water bottle and workout towel.
Flowers or Plants – Flowers and plants are a great gift to brighten someone’s day. Stop by your local florist to pick up a bouquet, or even better, purchase a plant that will continue to live, grow and keep on giving pleasure. Some popular plant suggestions for you include miniature roses, orchids, miniature fruit trees. If you want to deliver plants or flowers most companies can deliver your selected flowers or plant with your own personal message. This is a great gift that you can have delivered across the miles and is sure to bring smiles to the recipient.
Gift Card for Meal Plan Service – Gift cards to restaurants have been popular gifts over the years but they are typically to restaurants that offer high calorie meal selections. Recently more companies are offering meal plan services where prepared or pre-prepped meals are delivered to your door and the recipient just has to follow the recipe instructions to prepare a delicious, healthy meal. These companies offer a wide selection of pre-portioned and prepared meals and most will have menus catering to specific diets such as vegetarian, Keto, Paleo, low calorie etc. Your friend or loved one will really appreciate not having to plan meals, go shopping or spend hours preparing a meal and the healthy meal selections will help them maintain their healthy living goals!
