Are you looking for gift ideas for the health-conscious people in your life? Look no further! We rounded up a dozen great gifts to help improve your loved one’s health and wellness in 2021. 

1. New Shoes.

If you are looking for a gift for someone you know who loves getting out for runs then why not gift a new pair of shoes? Studies have shown that running shoes should be replaced every 300-500 miles, so chances are they will be due for some new shoes soon. 

2. Activity Tracker.

These are popular among active individuals as they are able to track steps, mileage, heart rate, sleep, and more. 

3. Activewear.

Give someone you love the chance to add to their collection of quality, sweat-wicking, and breathable clothing to wear during workouts. Remember, for exercise, stick to synthetics – because “cotton is rotten.”

4. Insulated water bottle.

Adequate water intake is so important for all of us, so this makes this an excellent gift for anyone on your list. 

5. Subscription to a meal delivery service.

This is for anyone who doesn't like to cook or just doesn't have the time to make healthy meals for themselves.

6. Weighted blanket.

These blankets can improve your sleep and in some cases reduce anxiety and stress.

7. Aromatherapy oils.

These have been proven to aid people who are trying to relax. Always be sure to tell your loved one to check with a healthcare provider before applying or breathing in any essential oil. 

8. Blue light glasses.

Staring at digital screens can be damaging to our eyes and our health. These special glasses are able to block the blue light that comes from from computer screens, phones, tablets, and TV’s – plus, they make an awesome stocking stuffer. 

9. Ergonomic backpack.

If you are someone who is frequently traveling or a student who constantly carries around a backpack then you should certainly consider gifting a backpack that’s made to be easy on the body. An ergonomic backpack will help distribute the weight of the contents more evenly and help improve posture. 

10. Gift certificate to try a new class.

Yoga and Tai Chi are both great workouts for people who are just starting their fitness journey. These classes are for everyone and they help reinforce optimal breathing and relaxation techniques. 

11. Bluetooth headset.

Office workers or anyone who’s on their phone for a substantial part of their day could really benefit from this gift. It’ll help free up their hands and deter them from cradling a phone between their shoulder and ear, which strains the neck. 

12. Ergonomic pillow.

When shopping for an ergonomic pillow you should try to find one that promotes proper neck posture and doesn’t leave the neck and shoulders stiff in the morning. Many commercially available ergonomic pillows fit that bill. If you have questions, check with our office. We’ll be happy to make a custom recommendation.

Giving someone the ability to improve their health is one of the best gifts you can give. If you’re still stumped for ideas,consider a gift certificate for a chiropractic adjustment. It’s a gift that anyone with a spine can appreciate! Happy Holidays from all of us at the clinic.
