It’s holiday season, and you know what that means…holiday parties, gift baskets filled with tempting treats, and lots of presents. Instead of giving friends, family, and colleagues boxes of chocolate and other mouth-watering goodies that may not be so good for their waistlines, give them something nutritioulicious™ and health-oriented instead. Here are some of my favorite gift ideas:
- Fruit baskets. You can find some at Harry & David, The Fruit Company, and many more places — search online and you’ll find lots of options. Edible Arrangements also has lots of fun fruit gifts, which make great centerpieces on any holiday table.
- Food inspired clothing. Check out these great shirts, aprons, onesies, totes, and more from FoodTee.com. Each one has a fruit or vegetable with a catchy, cute saying. I love the leek in warrior II pose and the “no sugar added” cherries!
- Magazine subscriptions. Whether your friends or loved ones like to cook, love wine, or love reading about healthy living, there are wonderful food and wine related magazines you can send as gift subscriptions. Some of my favorites are Everyday Food, Cooking Light, Food & Wine, Wine Enthusiast, Prevention, and Real Simple.
- Healthy placemats. Looking for something fun for the kids? Check out these cool plates and placemats. Stick to the healthy ones, like “Mia loves broccoli” or “Jaden loves soccer” (personalized of course!). Your kids will love them!
