Stuff Those Stockings With Healthy Goodies

If you read FitSugar regularly, chances are high you are on a health and fitness kick, and to that I say "Right on!" Since Christmas is the time of giving why not give something healthy to your friends and family? Seriously, health is the gift that keeps on giving. Here are some great ideas for stocking stuffers that encourage a healthy lifestyle:

  • Gift cards to gear shops or health-food stores.
  • Gift certificate for a free-month gym or studio membership.
  • Fitness DVDs.
  • Gift certificate for a session with a personal trainer, private chef, or dietitian.
  • Wicking socks for runners, skiers, or riders.
  • Emergen-C packets.
  • LARABARs, Kind Bars, or other energy bars.
  • Hand weights or exercise bands.
  • A little card that says you got them a year's subscription to Women's Health, Yoga Journal, or some other health magazine.
  • Do you have any other small, but healthy ideas that could fit in a stocking? Please share them in the comment section below.

While it sounds kinda cheesy, giving someone you love something healthy shows them you want them to stick around a while :) Here's a great resource for lots of articles on health, fitness, weight ... all the fun stuff.

Most of the items on my wishlist were fitness-related this year: - workout clothes - workout DVDs - the Cardio Barre set *love* I look at it like this: my presents will help me keep some of my new years's resolutions :-)

THese are great. I'm getting my boyfriend 2 magazine subscriptions, some workout tshirts (he needs the moisture wicking ones, he's a sweater), vitamins, face moisturizer with high SPF, and probablt deoderants haha. We try to be practical with our stockings! I'll probablt throw in a regular cool shirt for him too

I would love any of the suggestions you mentioned. I get way too excited when I get nice running socks as presents.
