Can You Give the Gift of Health?


I recently did a wellness seminar that was centered around gift ideas for the holidays. In preparation, I researched the topic and found several articles with similar titles to “Gift of Health.” However, this is quite impossible, as we cannot give anyone health – even if we give a loved one with diabetes a kidney, if they do not control their blood sugars, they will not enjoy health, and will likely damage the new kidney quite quickly. So, what can we do if we want those who we care about to be happy and healthy? I would suggest that we give them opportunities to make healthy choices. Perhaps you buy your nephew a month’s worth of classes at a local martial arts studio, or your sister a few pounds of heirloom beans and your favorite soup recipe. Your mom might enjoy a 30-day pass to a heated pool at a gym near her home, and your brother could use a gift card toward new running shoes. You may decide to gift your neighbor with a batch of homemade salad dressing in a great glass bottle (several recipes on this website). The possibilities are virtually endless when you shift your focus to looking for ways to offer opportunities for making healthy decisions…

    I never thought about giving beans! Great idea since they don’t go bad and people can cook them just the way they like!

    I love giving gifts that support good health! Family is putting money together to get my niece and nephew a trampoline for their backyard!
