The clock is ticking and if you've waited until the last minute for a holiday gift, I've put together a few ideas that will fill up someone's stocking. These are thoughtful, useful and relatively inexpensive items that anyone can use - now let's get shopping.
Now this may seem like a silly gift, but GREAT socks are a necessity. Hiking socks, ski socks, athletic socks, even YOGA socks, - these will be used and welcomed by any one on your list.
A yoga mat is essential. This is a personal item that your favorite yogi or exercise guru will love. It's the go to gift as it can travel anywhere so that your special person can roll it out for stretching, body weight workouts or just meditation.
Power walking, hiking trails or back packing will put the trekking poles to use and the best part they are lightweight and collapse to fit in a day pack. They provide a sense of stability plus will take pressure off the joints on those long hikes. Now you can pack a punch if you go carbon fiber, but it's a gift that will be a winner.
Cooking is the new healthy lifestyle for many people. A cookbook can shake up the kitchen for anyone on your gift list. Plant based eating, simple ingredients, healthy slow cooker recipes, the Whole30, Vitamix Recipes - it's all out there to provide creative, simple menu ideas.
Soul-care has reinforced the art of keeping a journal aka a diary. It can be used to document travel or adventures, it can be used to aid in emotional release, it can provide a wellness platform to keep someone on track with their lifestyle goals, or just as a place to write a thought or idea. Choose one with a high quality paper, an artsy cover and compliment it with a high quality pen to wrap up this gift of mindfulness.
SImplicity is key to gift giving, so I hope these gift ideas will provide a thoughtful niche idea to your holiday shopping. Cheers!
