Healthy living and eating is important, from food and beverage to accessible wheelchair accessories:
The holiday season is the time of year when the majority of Americans gain a few pounds. For some it might be only a pound or two, but others can gain anywhere from five to ten pounds. Wanting to fight this trend, I started giving healthy presents to my friends and family members, like juice in their cup holder.
For my aunt who wants to get a gym workout at home, I got a resistance band and workout DVD. She and my mother use them together each week. They can’t believe how much better they feel from head to do by just doing a little bit of exercise each week. The great thing about workout DVDs is that there is such a variety. Depending on who you are buying for, you can get something specifically suited towards them.
My neighbor had been complaining to me about not being able to go bike riding in the winter, so I bought him a bicycle trainer. Using it, he can turn his bike into a stationary bike and get the exercise that he is used to even in the winter time. You’ll find that people will often give clues if you pay attention.
My brother and I don’t see each other as much as we like, so I got a gift that we could enjoy together: a pair of gym memberships. He had been talking about getting one for a while, so I paid the start-up fee and we promised that we would work out at least twice a week together. We both struggled at first, even with sports drinks in our drink holder, but having each others’ support was extremely helpful. Our relationship has improved along with our health.

If you look hard enough, you can find a healthy gift alternative for almost anybody even if they are a novice. A cute additional gift could be a coupon made by you for a few free workout sessions that you could give. It might be easier to go with a more conventional present like a book, clothes or jewelry, but the satisfaction that your friend will get from their gift will be better than anything else they received.
