If you’re wondering why the holidays are just around the corner, you’re not alone. It feels like the season has started earlier than usual this year, and that means you might not have done all your Christmas shopping just yet. But don’t panic—there’s still time to order great gifts from big retailers like Target, Amazon, and Nordstrom and have them shipped in time for the holidays.
This list includes the larger ticket items, those for the friends and family you want to get something really good for. These gifts won’t feel like last-minute scrambled eggs, but rather thoughtful choices that any health and wellness lover would love to receive. So go shopping and with these good options, you might want to leave some budget to buy something new for yourself.
Being prepared is key to success in health and wellness, and even the friend who has everything will appreciate these fitness allstars. Whether it’s the best yoga mat or the noise-cancelling Beats Fit Pro Earbuds, sometimes the best gift is getting an upgrade you wouldn’t think you’d buy yourself. For the friend or loved one starting a home fitness routine, Bowflex Adjustable Dumbbells offer the flexibility of a wide range of weights without taking up a lot of space.
It’s the little things that can make or break a wellness routine, and these picks make fantastic additions to any wellness lover’s arsenal. A large Dagne Dover duffle bag makes the perfect gym bag, a pair of recycled Sunski Dipsea polarized sunglasses look cool while protecting your eyes while hiking and running, and a water bottle that doubles as a foam roller? Well, that’s just awesome.
Most health and wellness lovers know that rest is just as important as a hard workout at the gym. Whether your gift recipient is looking to restart their routine in January or just want to aid in their overall recovery, you can’t go wrong with a gift that will help relieve muscle tension like the Hypervolt Percussion Massager or soothe tired feet and legs like the incredibly comfortable Hoka Ora Luxe Recovery Slides. Or support healthy sleep patterns that are at the root of any quality restore, like the Hatch Restore reading light, sound machine, and sunrise alarm clock (the name says it all, really).
Our mental health needs as much (if not more) attention as our physical ones, and while you can’t make your loved ones’ worries go away completely, you can certainly help them with the tools they need to support themselves. Alleviate anxiety with Casper’s weighted blanket, or create the perfect zen moment with a Florensi Meditation Cushion or a Neom Wellbeing Pod Luxe Essential Oil Diffuser, which features a ‘Breathing Mode’ light to inspire breathing while letting in soothing scents of your body inhale choice.
