Since wellness can take so many forms, there’s no shortage of healthy gift ideas out there to speak to the wellness-obsessed person in your life.
These gifts will help bring some much-needed balance to the hectic holiday season, making it easier for your loved ones to put themselves—and their well-being—first. Goodies like a vibrating foam roller, muscle soak bath salts, and recovery sleepwear pants will have them feeling healthy, restored, and energized to tackle their New Year’s goals.
Somneo Sleep and Wake-Up Light
In a stressful year, what better gift is there than that of peacefully awakening to the sound of song birds? Early a.m. wake-ups aren’t nearly as bad with this alarm clock that simulates the sunrise to gently wake you up. It even has a nighttime mode that simulates the sunset to gently lull whomever is on your gift list to sleep. Take that daylight savings.
Charge Vibe Foam Roller
Foam rolling is a killer way to unwind after a tough workout (or even just a day of carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders). Translation: your friend who runs half marathons or cousin with a stressful job will love it. For newbies, this vibrating roller cuts down on the feeling of pain while speeding muscle recovery.
Whether she hasn’t given ClassPass a go yet, or is a devotee of the app, a gift card is the perfect way to help her get a jump on her 2019 wellness goals.
For the person on your list whose New Year’s resolution is perennially to “finally take up meditating,” the Leaf Chakra might be the edge they need. Chakra tracks your meditation sessions by measuring breath and movement like a fitness tracker tracks your steps and heart rate—except unlike a fitness tracker, it’s actually really pretty to wear.
Reusable Stainless Steel Straws
A colorful pack of stainless steel straws will easily replace plastic ones, so they can keep on sippin’ while cutting back on excess waste.
