- 1 My 10 Best Healthy Gift Ideas (For Men & Women)
My 10 Best Healthy Gift Ideas (For Men & Women)
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 water falls.
When inhaled, they promote biochemical reactions that increase the “good mood hormone – Serotonin.
Serotonin alleviates stress, bad mood and boosts energy.
Negative ions also increase the flow of oxygen to the brain, which leads to alertness, decreased drowsiness and more mental energy.
They also can protect against germs and relieve allergies, asthma, cough and throat irritation.
It’s been on my wish list for ages, I think I’m going to pick it up here today…
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 own personal little doctor to help him with any ache or pain for any reason under the blue sky.
Infrared heating is a proven natural and drug-free way to almost immediately relieve sore muscles, nerves, joints – All the way to the bones.
Don’t mistake this with the regular electric heating pad, oh no.
Infrared heating, produced through natural Jade or Amethysts stones, penetrates much deeper than just the skin, boosts circulation and brings healing components to the aching area – faster and better.
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 it 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).
Seriously, this is a great health gift and you can find it for less than $50.
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 $50 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.
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 be 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 are: 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.
I’m very particular about the tea I drink, and this tea is excellent. Pick it up here.
7. Digital Food Steamer
We all know that steaming is the healthiest way to cook our vegetables, right?
Any health nut will love to receive a digital food steamer, and it won’t cost you an arm and leg too.
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, out head resting on our pillow, breathing its ingredients to 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 are either filled with buckwheat and covered with organic cotton, or filled with organic cotton or organic 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).
By the way, 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 health 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 don’t leach anything to your food.
They are technically 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, keep 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).
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.
I have the Urban Rebounder with the exercise DVD and my whole family loves it and uses it every day.
(Here are the 5 best health benefits if rebounding exercises)
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 each and every one of these gifts.
