Have a health-minded friend? Or maybe you have to buy a gift for the person that has everything! Here are a few out-of-the box ideas that she or he will love!
This is what’s hot right now. Give your friend a box of her favorite things. You can choose a onetime box or gift her with a monthly subscription. Here are a few of my favorites.
Fit Snack Box: – This box comes with healthy snacks (for mom and the kids), a workout plan for the month, nutritional tips, and each snack comes with a coupon (you know how we love a discount), to purchase more. I like this box because you get to try the healthy snacks before spending a ton of money. It also has several subscription options. I recommend three months, it’ll give her a good idea of what she’ll get every month without a big commitment. Then she can decide whether or not to keep the subscription.
FitFabFun Box: This one comes with everything but the kitchen sink! It comes with makeup, bath bombs, pocketbooks, fitness accessories, fashion accessories and everything is so cute! This is a seasonal box, so she’ll get one for Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter…how fun is that?! The contents of each box are guaranteed to be valued at OVER $200 and you pay for $50 for each (again with the savings…woot!) I wish I had an affiliate link for this one because it’s the bomb, but you can find them here and even get a look inside the boxes https://fabfitfun.com/gift/.
#2 DIY a Fitness Box/Basket:
This one is great if you’re pressed for time. When I worked for a nonprofit, one of our fundraisers was a silent auction and one of the most popular items were gift baskets. We’d combine gift cards and other random items that were donated and create themed baskets. So instead of just a boring gift card, combine it with a few of mom’s favorite things. (Hint: Ross Clothing Stores and TJMaxx are great places to find fun items to fill a box or basket). Here are a few examples:
Get Fit Basket: Gift card to Fabletics, new earbuds, a jump rope, a fancy water bottle, socks, and some healthy snacks.
Pampering Basket: A gift card to the bookstore or nail salon, bath/shower bombs, fuzzy socks, cucumber face mask, her favorite magazine or a good book, a candle, and don’t forget the chocolate. Find some other great pampering gifts at Anthropoligie.com.
#3 Fun Tanks or Pull Overs for the Gym:
Suns Out, Guns Out…ok maybe not that one but Just Strong offers some fun ones! Here are just a few: “She Believed She Could, so She Did.” “Be Strong, Be Fearless, Be Beautiful.”
#4 Magazine Subscription
I know that this is usually something we say no to at the bookstore, but as a gift it’s so much fun! I had a subscription gifted to me and it was so nice to get something in the mail for pure entertainment and it wasn’t a bill! Here are a few mags that your health minded mama might enjoy Shape, Women’s Health, Health, Journal and Experience L!FE . Most of these are under $20 for a year subscription.
#5 Journal for Self-Care
If your mom enjoys her quiet time, she will probably also enjoy a journal. My favorite so far is Start Today Journal by Rachel Hollis and if your mom hasn’t read her book “Girl, Wash Your Face” you’ll want to pick that up too.
There you have it, my 5 favorite gift ideas for the health-minded mama! I hope this got your wheels turning for the perfect gift for that healthy friend.
