Getting gifts for friends, family, and colleagues can feel like such a drag when your loved ones have different tastes and interests. What do you buy for the friend who likes thrifty, crafty things? What do you buy for the friend who has everything? And what about the friend who is healthy, watches what they eat, tracks their sleep and drinks a lot of water? That friend can be the hardest one to buy for, especially when it comes to costs; and that’s hard because we also want the gifts to be affordable. Well, here are a few ideas.
Everyone deserves a hotel-worthy bed, especially if the person loves to get a good night’s sleep. You can get them great pillows, a nice new colorful comforter, or a state-of-the-art mattress protector. Either way, it will make a huge impact on the quality of sleep. It’s a small addition with a huge impact.” Your loved will get to boost their overall health which will make them perform better in every other area of their lives. Bring a little hotel fanciness to your friend this festive season, and they will adore you for it.
Fitness-based Subscription Box
If your loved one is health conscious, loves to do yoga, or is a bona fide gym rat, one of the best gifts you can get them is basically never-ending gym clothes. You can sign them up for one of those subscription boxes that specializes in fitness gear and athleisure. That would mean that they get new stuff every month or regularly, so it’s a gift that will keep on giving for the whole year. It doesn’t have to just be clothes either, you can also go with a food-based box that can give them different healthy eats and supplements to try. They’ll appreciate not having to figure out what to wear.
A Relaxing Candle
Candles can actually be a great gift, and not just something that someone will want to regift. Many brands are making really amazing candles that are relevant to different tastes, and they can be extremely stylish too. So why not get your friend a candle that they can use to relax before bed, and something that can actually compliment the decor of their home? Add a great bath bomb, and a sheet mask to the gift and you’ve given your friend a relaxing night in.
Did you know that they make personalized shampoo now? Yes, there’s a website where you can fill out a form of specifications based on your hair texture, oiliness/dryness and other factors. Then you can choose a scent, a color and get a personalized label for the bottle. Imagine surprising your friend with shampoo and conditioners made just for her? A lot of women struggle to find a commercially-sold shampoo and conditioner combination that actually does everything their hair needs, so this service is incredibly valuable. It’s such a special gift and it doesn’t have to cost a whole lot of money.
And it doesn’t have to end at customized shampoo. Getting natural skin care products is another great way to offer health friendly benefits with thoughtful gifts. There are a variety of skin products that fit the bill, but you’ll find that natural products use vitamins and herbs with no additives or parabens.
The 5-Minute Journal

Normal journals can be so overwhelming and a lot of the times, people end up not using them. With the 5-minute journal, all it takes it is-well 5-minutes. Just about anyone can take 5 minutes out of their day to focus on gratitude. It will make the rest of their day, and their overall life better. This gifts costs $23, but what your loved one will get out of it is infinitely valuable.
Just because your friend or family member is into their health, that doesn’t mean you have to go and buy them a Fitbit. There are so many ways you can help them make their health, wellness and fitness a priority without completely breaking the bank. It’s all about thinking of small things they can add into their existing routines, and trying to bring their personality and style to it. At this time of the year, we can easily get caught up in buying the most expensive thing out there for people. It’s important to remember that it truly is the thought that counts, not the cost of the item. Hopefully this list will help make it a lot easier in your gift shopping. Happy hunting!
