The holiday season is almost here – and that means it’s time to start thinking about gifts for all of your favorite people.

One of the most meaningful gifts you can give is something that supports the health and wellness of your loved ones. It’s a way to say that you care and recognize that they are on a special journey, whether they want to improve their mind, body, or spirit. 

Here are 15 gift ideas to give you a head start on your holiday shopping. 

15 Happy and Healthy Holiday Gifts

Gifts for the mind 

Mental health is essential. These gifts help feed the mind. 

Audiobook or book club subscription: If you know someone who loves to read, you can’t go wrong with this present. Reading is a great way to improve vocabulary and comprehension, exercise the brain, and escape into another world.

An online or local course: Have you ever heard someone say, “I’ve always wanted to learn a language,” or “I’ve always wanted to learn how to paint?” An online course – or one that is offered locally – is a great way to share the gift of these skills with someone else. 

A sun lamp: A sun lamp for use during the darker months is a useful item a lot of people would not buy for themselves. However, a sun lamp can help provide a much-needed mental boost on dark and dreary days, especially during the winter months. 

A journal: Writing is a great way to strengthen mental health. A beautiful journal can help someone else enjoy this soothing activity. Pair it with a nice pen to create a beautiful experience to unwind with. If you’re feeling extra creative, come up with your own journaling prompts. 

An experience: Concerts, sporting events, and other experiences are a great way to connect with others and stimulate the mind.

Gifts for the spirit 

Some gifts are meant to nourish the heart, and oftentimes these are the most meaningful gifts you can give. 

Artwork: Many people love art, but not everyone will invest in it. Find a unique piece of art from a local artist – or create a piece of your own! – and it will be cherished for years by your loved one.

A donation to a charity: Making a donation to someone’s favorite charity in their name is a gift that keeps on giving. Plus, you will be doing good for someone in need – a win-win!

Inspirational books or home decor: There are many products today that have inspirational quotes, reminders, and stories accompanying them. Choose something you know will uplift your loved one every day. 

Something handmade: Do you have a special talent? Share it with someone you love. Knit or crochet a hat, scarf, or blanket. Make a pair of beaded earrings – or a bracelet or necklace. Craft an ornament. There are many ways to share your talents with others, so don’t be shy about giving something handmade.
