Santa Claus and Christmas gifts

Ah, the holidays, a time for friends, family, and food — lots of food! While the holiday season is often referred to as the most wonderful time of year, it can also be the most stressful. Between dealing with extra houseguests, running around crowded shops, late-night parties, and having a few too many cookies and cocktails, the holidays can leave many of us feeling a bit run down.

While the holidays are practically synonymous with overindulgence, they don’t have to be! Instead of gifting another basket of fatty foods and sugary sweets or another bottle of alcohol, let’s explore some gifts that promote health and wellness. What better way to show a loved one you truly care than a gift that helps them feel their best?

Here are some healthy holiday gifts that everyone will love!

Massage Gift Cards

What better gift to give your loved ones than the gift of “me” time? Melt away holiday stress with a massage gift card. Getting a massage has many positive benefits on both mental and physical health and is the perfect way to relax. Massage gift cards are great for anyone on your list who needs a break during the hectic holidays!

Yoga Class Subscriptions

Another great way to help your friends and family unwind — give the gift of yoga! You can gift them yoga classes at a local studio, subscriptions to yoga apps, or even virtual classes they can do right in their living room. Regular yoga can help reduce stress, lower blood pressure, reduce pain and inflammation, and promote flexibility and overall wellness. Yoga is truly the gift that keeps on giving!

Healthy Food

There’s no better gift than the gift of health! Give your loved ones healthy cookbooks, fruit baskets, teas, or gift cards to local juice bars or farm-to-table style restaurants. You can also consider gifting cooking classes or kitchen gadgets to help whip up healthy meals. Heading to a holiday party and want something to bring that’s not full of sugar or alcohol? Bring a beautiful veggie platter full of vibrant colors and nutrients or whip up some delicious “mocktails” with fresh juices and herbs for a healthy non-alcoholic way to celebrate the festivities.

Mindfulness Gifts

While the practice of mindfulness can’t exactly be wrapped, you can give gifts to help your loved ones on their journey. Things like mindfulness books, daily affirmation calendars, desktop zen gardens, Tibetan singing bowls, wellness journals, or subscriptions to meditation apps like Headspace or Calm can all be great ways to give the gift of mindfulness.


Aromatherapy can be a powerful tool for improving mood, promoting relaxation, and may even offer a natural way to each chronic or acute inflammation and pain. Aromatherapy gifts can include oils, diffusers, candles, bath salts, and more. Some spas also offer aromatherapy sessions that can be gifted.

Think Outside the Box For Healthy Holiday Gift Giving

There are many ways we can give the gift of health for the holidays, so don’t be afraid to think outside the box. There’s no reason we have to wait until January to get healthy!

Hosting a corporate holiday party? Instead of another photo booth or cookie contest, consider bringing in a chair massage event. The perfect way to show appreciation to your hard-working employees or loyal clients.
