Healthy Food-Related Gift Giving

It’s the holiday season, and for many of us that translates to not only a time for family celebration, but also a time for gift giving! Unfortunately, many food or kitchen-related gifts on the market don’t exactly promote a healthy lifestyle, despite how charming they may seem. For example, those doughnut or instant waffle makers being sold at Kohl’s are easy to use and work wonderfully as family-pleasers. They also happen to work wonderfully as makers of high-calorie (and specifically high fat and high sugar) creations. Go figure. What can you give this holiday season that promotes good health and good eating habits?

  • Smoothie maker (i.e. blender) – After all of those articles HE has posted mentioning smoothies, you had to see this one coming; however, rather than merely giving a blender, why not include a book of healthy smoothie options? Ideally, you might be able to try the recipes out yourself, and put some sticky notes on your favorites to make the gift more than just a bunch of pages with pretty suggestions.
  • Tea-related items – As long as not too much sugar is added, tea is a delicious, healthy, and low-calorie beverage. Splurge a little on specialty blends like those from Teavana. With a little searching, you can probably find one that includes your friend or family member’s favorite flower or fruit, a more personal pick. Besides the actual tea, you can also buy tea tins, a tea pot, or perhaps a nifty tea infuser.
  • Food Tees – These aren’t exactly edible, but allow your friends and family members to proudly send a positive message about eating healthy.
  • Play With Your Food – Having trouble getting your kids to eat their veggies? What if dinner was a game? Play With Your Food is a Daydream Toy “game” that adds a bit of excitement to dinner by having a spinner decide what part of the plate to tackle next. Kids will be more engaged in dinner and encouraged to try new foods. (It is currently available in a dinosaur or princess theme).

If you have a friend or family member who can take a joke or who has recently shown an extreme interest in weight loss and dieting, you can probably consider some of these fun, diet-related gifts, or invest in a new watch or water bottle. I’d be careful about giving a gift like these to just anyone; some people more than others would enjoy getting a dumbbell as their stocking stuffer.
