It’s Wednesday before Thanksgiving and what am I doing? Making my holiday shopping list! Between the upcoming sales and the free time this week I figured it would be a good time to at least make a plan for my holiday shopping.
I decided to create a Holiday Gift Guide for all of you so I could share my favorite healthy living gifts from throughout the year! I wrote a weight loss Christmas gift guide a while ago, so let’s call this version 2. Everything on this list is either something I’ve tried or am dying to try.
If you’re looking for a gift for a loved one or yourself then maybe this will give you some ideas. I hope this guide brings cheer to your life. Enjoy!
Wishing you all the happiness and blessings this holiday season! – Mary
Healthy Living Stocking Stuffers
UNREAL Candy – $10+
We always got candy in our stockings but now you can you can give candy without all the junk. UNREAL makes tasty candy without the preservatives, artificials, GMO’s, and more. Plus it’s less sugary than regular candy. I’m a huge fan of the UNREAL Candy – Peanut Butter Cups.

Target socks – $1 – $5
I love Xhilaration® Juniors 6 Single Low Cut Mix and Match socks from Target above all other socks. These low cut mix and match socks are my absolute favorite for their fun colors, breathability, and stickiness – they never slip! After trying many different kinds of low cut socks I’ve decided these are the best and the only ones I buy. You can get them at Target in packs of 6 or individually.

Chapstick – $1 – $20
Everyone loves Chapstick during the winter – it’s fun and actually useful! Since the weather is dry you can keep your lips protected and enjoy fun flavors. My current favorite is the limited edition Chapstick Candy Cane, Peppermint.

Amazon Gift Cards – $5+
Y’all know I link to Amazon a lot because I search for and buy almost everything there! An Amazon gift card is a great stocking stuffer because everyone knows and trusts Amazon and can use the gift card to purchase something they really want or need. When in doubt, a generic Amazon gift card is the perfect gift.

This little portion control nut bowl and scoop is a great idea for anyone that loves nuts but wants to keep portions in check (hard to do with yummy nuts!). The lid doubles as a 1 serving size scoop and the clear bowl has lines that indicate 1 or 2 snack-size servings of nuts, plus they are dishwasher safe. Perfect for nut lovers!

Healthy Living Christmas Gifts
The FitBit One is so cool! It tracks steps, distance, calories burned and stairs climbed, monitors sleep, and then translates all the data to your computer so you can set goals and view your progress. I was given one earlier this year by a friend and love it (review soon). It’s great for making you more conscious of your daily activity so you move more and improve your life cycles. Highly recommended for the geeky fitness people in your life or anyone that wants to learn more about their daily activities so they can more easily incorporate movement.

This has been my scale of choice for several years. Eatsmart has developed some great technology that offers accurate readings with step-on technology so you don’t have to do the tap-and-wait dance. I love this scale because of it’s accuracy, easy to read display, and it’s style. Plus, Eatsmart guarantees all products 100% so there is no worry if you give it as a gift.

As a devoted listener of the Jillian Michaels podcast I’m convinced that Body Revolution is the best at-home workout on the market right now. This gift is perfect for people that love at-home workouts, whether they want to lose weight or just get in shape. It’s more than just the DVDs as the program contains a journal, online membership, diet plan, and more.

Groceries delivered to your door is the perfect gift for someone who is always saying they are too busy to shop for healthy food.

They are very particular about quality so you are sure to get the best food that is in season. You can also get fresh, chef-made entrees to make life even easier.

Monthly Subscription Box – Varies
Monthly boxes of goodies delivered to your door is all the rage these days. It started with BirchBox (in my mind) and now there are monthly delivery boxes of every type including healthy treats. My friend Candace gets so many she is considering a blog to review them all! A subscription to a monthly service is a great gift that will keep on giving throughout the year. Here are a few options that deliver healthy goodies each month:
In a world where the mail is usually bills and spam it’s nice to get a treat once a month. Give this gift to keep the joy going all year round!
Enjoy! Happy Holidays!
