10 Timeless Healthy Gift Ideas (For Women and Men)

What’s a better gift than the gift of health, right?

Finding healthy gift ideas may seem like a difficult task:

They already have kettle balls, stainless steel water bottles, and state-of-the-art juicers.

But worry not, I have a few more great healthy gift ideas for you.

The 10 Best Healthy Gift Ideas 

All of them are unique, healthy, and eco-friendly.

Most importantly – they can make the lives of your friends and family healthier and happier.

1. Himalayan Salt Lamp

Probably the second best thing after Pink Himalayan salt, the Himalayan salt lamp is a natural ionizer.

When the salt lamp is heated, it releases negative ions.

Negative ions are odorless, tasteless, and invisible molecules – Abundant in mountain areas, beaches, and around waterfalls.

When inhaled, they promote biochemical reactions that increase the “good mood hormone – Serotonin.

Serotonin alleviates stress, and bad mood and boosts energy.

Negative ions also increase oxygen flow to the brain, which leads to alertness, decreased drowsiness, and better mental energy.

A salt lamp can also protect against germs and relieve allergies, asthma, cough, and throat irritation.

2. Light Therapy Alarm Clock (Wake-Up Light)

A light therapy alarm clock, also known as a dawn simulator, is my all-time favorite healthy gift idea.

A dawn simulator can turn your loved one’s morning around. Instead of waking up from a heart attack caused by their alarm clock, they’ll wake up to a gradually increasing natural light and the sound of chirping birds.

A light therapy alarm clock re-sets the sleep cycle, helps to fall asleep easier, and to wake up slowly and calmly, with a big smile.

100% of the people who received this gift from me were thrilled and threw out their heart-stopping alarm clocks by the next day.

3. Infrared Heating Pad

Giving an infrared heating pad to someone you love is like giving him his little doctor to help him with any ache or pain.

Infrared heating is a proven natural and drug-free way to almost immediately relieve sore muscles, nerves, and joints – All the way to the bones.

Don’t mistake this for the regular electric heating pad, oh no.

Infrared heating, produced through natural Jade or Amethyst stones, penetrates much deeper than just the skin, boosts circulation, and brings healing components to the aching area – faster and better.

Plus, infrared heating pads emit almost no EMF radiation (as opposed to electric ones) and can not burn the skin.

4. Hand-Held Muscle Massager

Who doesn’t want one of these for the occasional sore muscles at the end of the day (or all through it)?

Your cooking-loving friend will love a hand-held massager to relieve her sore back or leg muscles after hours of cooking.

Your dad or brother-in-law will enjoy this handheld massager after a hard day of work, and your mother-in-law will love it to release the tension in her shoulders (after criticizing everything you do of course…) (Just joking).

5. Essential Oil Set

For the natural living enthusiast, this is a great healthy gift idea. He/she probably have a few essential oils at home (Lavender, Frankincense maybe…), but they’ll be glad to get a few more energy-lifting and health-promoting essential oils.

For less than $70 you can get 14 pure and organic essential oils, packaged attractively and waiting to be used in dozens of different ways.

He/she can make amazing blends from the essential oils and naturally treat everything from a cold to a headache, stress, cuts, burns, bug bites and so much more – without medications.

(Here’s everything I do with Tea Tree Essential Oil)

The possibilities are endless, and the smell is to die for. Who wouldn’t love to have one of these?

6. Organic Flowering Tea Set

For a friend or family member who loves their tea, this organic tea flowering gift set will turn tea drinking into a mood-lifting event, nothing less.

The 9 flowering tea blossoms (organic and 100% natural ingredients) come in a handmade mahogany bamboo chest and even a 16 oz hand-blown glass tea pot.

They’ll enjoy watching the flowers blossom when steeped (into amazing shapes, it’s really beautiful). I bought this as a present about 10 times and they were all delighted to have it.

The ingredients: Organic green tea, Amaranth flower, Osmanthus flower, Organic oolong tea, Organic black tea, lily, Jasmine flowers, Jasmine scented organic white tea, lavender flowers, and hibiscus flower.

7. Digital Food Steamer

We all know that steaming is the healthiest way to cook our vegetables, right?

Any health nut will love to get a digital food steamer, and it won’t cost you an arm and leg.

The Hamilton Beach Digital Steamer is a great gift for the healthy eater and keeps their food vitamin-packed and delicious.

It can be used to steam anything from vegetables to fish, seafood, chicken breasts, and even whole heads of broccoli fit in there.

8. Natural Organic Pillow

This one is on my wish list for a few months. We spend about 8 hours every day in our bed, our head resting on our pillow, breathing its ingredients into our lungs.

The importance of having a toxin-free pillow (and bedding) is obvious, especially for babies and toddlers, but for everyone who wants to stay healthy (or regain health).

Everyone would love to have a 100% natural pillow without toxic ingredients – For a calm, healthy and relaxing sleep, right?

The best pillow is either filled with buckwheat and covered with organic cotton, or with organic cotton or wool.

A Buckwheat Pillow naturally contours the head, neck, and spine to prevent neck, shoulder, and back pain and a better night’s sleep both for back or side sleepers.

This one is my favorite gift for the light sleepers in my family (there are more than a few of them, unfortunately).

And, if any of your family members or relatives suffer from neck pain, a cervical traction pillow can change their lives.

9. Non-Toxic Cookware

Another timeless gift that every healthy but loves to receive is non-toxic cookware – Lead and cadmium-free.

The main issue with traditional bakeware like non-stick and aluminum is that they can leach hormone-disrupting chemicals and toxins into our food. Not a great idea.

Thankfully, there are some great options out there that aren’t much more expensive than the harmful Teflon and non-stick varieties.

I’m a great fan of Xtrema Cookware, which doesn’t leach anything to your food.

They are dishwasher, oven, microwave, and stove safe and you can scrub it with anything.

10. Indoor Rebounder

An indoor rebounder is the most fun way to exercise, stay fit, and allow for a fast lymphatic system cleanse – For the whole family.

Adults love it and kids love to join and get a good workout without even noticing their working out.

(Did you know? NASA has declared that rebounding is the best exercise yet devised by man – see all rebounding benefits).

The aerobic bounce is superior to regular aerobics or step class because it is low impact, stimulates healing of the knees, ankles, and back and prevents sports injuries..

I would advise you not to buy a cheap rebounder because low-quality ones can cause back pain, which is not a great idea.

This concludes my list of timeless healthy gift ideas – great for the holidays but for any other event. I almost guarantee that the average natural living enthusiast will love every one of these gifts.

To your health and happiness,

  1. How exactly does a rebounder cleanse the lymphatic system? Not saying it doesn’t just curious how that works. Interesting comment from NASA as well 🙂

  2. Great list. Love the digital steamer idea and the massager although we would definitely break a body part with the indoor rebounder and dent the sealing.

    We would like to add Ceylon Cinnamon to this list in all its many forms from cinnamon tea, sticks, essential oil, powder and candles. After all what says Christmas more than the scent of Christmas. Cost effective and forever appreciated.

    Studies show the scent of cinnamon is well known to make you feel happier and less irritable. With the in-laws in town this is a must. Plus cinnamon is a fantastic stomach flu fighter, helps digestion and controls blood sugar spikes. A useful antidote for the inevitable over indulgence that comes with the holiday season. But insist on low coumarin Ceylon Cinnamon. It won’t kill you liver like Cassia cinnamon.
