Some people see Christmas as the perfect time to overindulge in all the favourite treats that they enjoy. However we have to bear in mind our friends and family working hard to achieve health goals. Gifts that encourage others to lead a more healthy lifestyle could be the most important presents that you ever buy in the long run. Take a look at our gift guide to inspire others to achieve their health goals:
Health Goal: Give Up Smoking
We suggest: a Vaporizer
For people determined to give up smoking but finding it a challenge vaping could be the solution. Vaping offers advantages including ease of use, safety, less of an overall impact on health, and the ability to lessen nicotine use. Vaping can be an excellent way to help your friend quit smoking cigarettes. Medical research into vaping is still ongoing but so far shows that vaping is less harmful than smoking cigarettes.
Thankfully there is an innovative product on the market. DAVINCI MIQRO, have crafted a portable vaporizer to fit into anyone’s lifestyle. 33% smaller than its predecessor and with a fully functional adjustable oven, this small vaporizer is sleek and simple!
Health Goal: Give Up Alcohol
We suggest: Alcohol Free Drinks
One tactic successful in helping people to give up drinking is stealth drinking- replace your favourite alcoholic tipple with an alcohol free version. Treat your friend to an alcohol free version of their drink of choice. This Bubbles Taster Pack from Dry Drinker is perfect for festive celebrations. It contains the following three bottles:
Scavi & Ray
First of all, open a bottle of alcohol free Scavi & Ray Prosecco and you’ll be met with a delicious aroma that says celebration. It’s a light, refreshing and authentic alternative to Scavi & Ray’s award-winning Prosecco.
The Bees Knees Sparkling Brut White
A refreshing and finely balanced non-alcoholic drink combining sparkling fermented grape juice blended with premium green tea for body. The Bee’s Knees presents notes of apple and pear with a pleasing acidity.
The Bees Knees Sparkling Rose
A finely balanced combination of fermented sparkling grape juice and premium green tea infusion, producing a delightfully refreshing drink, with a generous head of bubbles. A brilliant choice for that daytime get-together, or to provide the bubbly beginning to your evening event.
Health Goal: Cut Down on Sugar
We suggest: A low sugar/ sugar free recipe book
Friends who are cutting down or trying to give up sugar completely need inspiration for new foods in their diet. Buy them a copy of Ella Leche’s “Cut the Sugar- You’re Sweet Enough Cookbook” to help them on their way.
Cut the Sugar, You’re Sweet Enough is a practical, real-life approach to reducing sugar the healthy way so you don’t feel deprived. This is not a sugar-detox book but an inspiring cookbook and guide to change your relationship with the foods you love and address your cravings properly. There are over 100 delicious and easy recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and yes, even dessert!
Health Goal: Drink More Water
We suggest: A Smart Water Bottle
Personally I find that having a good jug and glass at home and a water bottle for on the go helps me to drink more water. Having a stylish bottle such as a Chillys Bottle (which keeps your water cool too) is also encouraging. If your friend likes to use Tech to monitor their fitness then they will love a Smart Water Bottle such as the H20-Pal that automatically tracks your hydration and sends smart reminders to your phone.
Health Goal: To Exercise More
We suggest: An Activity Tracker
Activity trackers can motivate us to take more exercise from increasing our daily steps to gradually running more miles. The Fitbit Charge 3 helps you know your body and understand your health so you can take action to improve yourself.
It’s features include:
- 24/7 Heart Rate Tracking
