Somehow, the holiday season is already here. And before we know it, Christmas will be tomorrow!
We all know you want to shower your loved ones with gifts. You also want to be providing them with things that will help continue to make their lives happy and healthy. Here at Purality Health, we know all about that! This is why we’ve come up with a list of 11 gift ideas for the special people in your life — gifts that can benefit their health!
1. Vegetable Garden Starter Kit
Depending on where you live, your loved one may not be able to get out and enjoy this gift right away. In many places, it’ll just be too cold! But they will be excited come spring when the ground begins to thaw and they can begin planting the seeds you bought for them. Having the opportunity to nurture and watch your garden grow can be very rewarding.
On top of that, you can’t get produce any fresher than straight from your own garden. When your fruits and veggies get to ripen right on the vine, they offer more nutrients than the produce in your grocery store that had to ripen in transit or on the shelf. It’s also more eco-friendly.
Alternatively, you may be able to find some kits that can be grown in a pot inside for that yummy veggie harvest all year round!
2. Journal Or Diary
If you head into a book store, you’ll likely see an entire section dedicated to empty notebooks. These journals and diaries range in all sizes and colors. They feel nice in your hands and the empty pages are full of opportunity.
But it’s not all about the aesthetics of those clean white pages. Journaling has been shown to have great health benefits.  Things like:
- Reducing mood swings
- Boosting immune function
- Cultivating gratitude
- Helping with recovery from trauma
- Improving memory function
Offering an empty notebook to your friends and family may encourage them to start writing down their thoughts and experiences, allowing them to get some of these benefits. You can add a nice pen with the gift to help get the ball rolling. Also, some companies allow for personalized notebooks, such as embroidering their name or initials onto the cover.
3. Fitness Watch
You may not have considered a fitness watch due to the price, but you can actually get certain fitness watch models for relatively cheap. What these devices do can range with the price of the product, but almost all of them cover some essentials. They’ll count steps, monitor heart rate, count burned calories, measure sleep quality, and more. On top of that, they tell the time and often have a nice sleek look!
Owning a fitness watch can come with many benefits such as creating accountability, making it easier to set realistic goals, adding daily motivation, and allowing connection with others. Most watches can sync with a smartphone app which you can share with your friends so that you can do competitions or track each other’s progress.
Whether the person you’re buying for is already active and would be excited by the prospect of seeing the numbers, or they’re looking for that extra boost of motivation, this is a great gift to consider!
4. Yoga Mat
This is another gift that is great for both the person who is already active or wants to get more active in the new year.
A yoga mat is a simple piece of exercise equipment, but it makes a world of a difference. Whether it’s being used for yoga or general workouts, it’s great to lay it down on a hard floor for a soft exercise station. Consider pairing this one with a subscription to online or in-person yoga classes, activewear, or something like a kettlebell.
5. Bubble Bath Supplies
Who doesn’t love to relax after a long day? A great way to do so is in a nice warm bubble bath. Buying bubble bath supplies for someone encourages them to take that time for themselves to relax.
On top of that, you can get certain mixtures that contain ingredients to make the bath that much more relaxing and beneficial. Look for products with Epsom salts to soothe muscles, lavender for a calming effect, or aloe vera to comfort the skin.
Be sure to look for products that are as natural as possible and free of fragrances, parabens, or sulfates.
6. Reusable Water Bottle
This one is especially good if the person you’re buying for is someone who is frequently on the go. The benefits of staying hydrated can’t be overstated.
Drinking enough water each day is crucial for many reasons. It helps regulate body temperature, keep joints lubricated, reduce the risk of infections, deliver nutrients to cells, and keep organs functioning properly. Being well-hydrated also improves sleep quality, cognition, and mood.
You can get great-looking water bottles out there, and even personalize them. Encourage the people in your life to drink as much water as possible by getting them a reusable water bottle that they’ll be happy to take with them everywhere.
7. Kitchen Utensils
Nothing beats a home-cooked meal. In fact, they’re the healthiest types of meals you can eat, not to mention the easiest on the wallet. When eating at home, we’re often eating fewer calories and being more mindful about what we’re putting into our bodies.
Purchasing cookware for someone – from pots and pans to a spatula set – can encourage them to start cooking at home more instead of ordering food, going out, or heating something up in the microwave.
Try and subtly find out what the person you’re buying for needs in the kitchen and surprise them with it as a present. It could have them excited to try some new recipes that they’ve been holding off on cooking. Pairing this gift with a cookbook is a great idea!
If you’re looking for something simple – like a stocking stuffer – try getting nuts instead of something sweet. Surely, after the holidays, the recipient of your gift will already have a ton of candy and chocolate from other gifts. Instead, get them something that’s filling, delicious, and super nutritious.
It varies, but most nuts are loaded with nutrients such as protein, fat, fiber, vitamins, and more!
9. Sleep Mask
If you know someone who is trying to get some sleep but having trouble, consider getting them a sleep mask. There are a ton of them on the market, with some covering the ears as well, containing headphones so you can listen to relaxing music or white noise as you fall asleep.
These devices can make a big difference. One study found that, in a bright and loud environment, earplugs and eye masks promoted sleep and hormone balance. 
Even a subtle amount of light can disrupt sleep, as humans can be really sensitive to light. This can delay the production of melatonin and inhibit your ability to fall asleep.
Help that tired person in your life get a deeper sleep with a comfortable eye mask!
10. Light Therapy Lamp
A light therapy lamp creates artificial light that mimics outdoor light. This is to help stave off symptoms of SAD (seasonal affective disorder), especially in the winter when daylight is limited. It can also help improve sleep quality or help your body readjust in case of jetlag.
If you have a friend or family member who has difficulty getting through the winter, try getting them a light therapy lamp. These are simple lamps that they can place on their desk or any other indoor place where they may spend a lot of time.
Results can vary from days to weeks. It’s not a cure, but it may help ease symptoms, improve mood, increase energy levels, and manage sleep quality – which has a reaching effect on many other aspects of human health.
It could be the simple remedy that makes getting through the winter just that much easier!
Things can get dry in the winter, and a diffuser can help fix that by acting as a humidifier. On top of that, you can get an essential oil diffuser that can transform a living space into a more calming or fresh environment.
All you do is fill the device’s reservoir with water and then add a few drops of the oil of your choice. It will diffuse a mist into the air, which helps with the dryness and air quality.
For example, the fresh scent of peppermint oil can be beneficial for digestion, lavender is soothing and can help alleviate stress, and tea tree oil is thought to have antibacterial and antifungal properties which can help cleanse the environment.
Freshen things up for your loved ones with a diffuser and some essential oils that can bring a new life to their living space – along with some health benefits!
