For the Health Nut | Festive Favorites

The holidays are upon us and I could not be more excited. From now until Christmas, there will be a bonus post every Monday! I know with my busy schedule I barely have time to go to the mall, so these are my online shopping Gift Guides. This week we’re kicking it off with goodies for the Health Nut.

Here we go! Christmas is fast approaching and finding just the right gift is fun, but can also be incredibly time consuming so these are the 8 best gifts out there for the health nut in your life.

Several links in this post are affiliate links, which means that I may receive a small commission if you click or purchase an item.

1. Foam Roller

The one thing every active person needs is a foam roller. Whether they’re heading to the gym or on their way back from yoga, having a foam roller at home is key to staying loose so you can keep moving! During marathon training, I actually kept mine next to my bed for those middle-of-the-night cramps.

2. Yoga Mat Towel

They probably already have a yoga mat, but getting a yoga mat towel revolutionized my practice. It makes hot yoga easier because it absorbs the sweat (so you don’t slip) and cleaning is a breeze since you throw it in with the rest of your yoga clothes.

3. Water Bottle

Studies have been released on the dangers of plastic water bottles, so if you’re health nut hasn’t switched over yet, this is the time.

4. Gym Bag

 That drawstring bag they’ve been using since freshman year might have worked to take a water bottle and a towel to and from the dorm, but it probably doesn’t hold the change of clothes they need to get them through the day when they can’t go back to their apartment. I use one just like this one almost every morning.

5. Blender

Health nuts just love their protein shakes, and I know I use my blender every day. For someone who has scientifically shown to be unable to cook, this blender (which is actually on sale right now!) is by far the most important item in my kitchen.

6. Smoothie Recipe Book

Cookbooks are awesome gifts for the health nut in your life, and I’ve been reaching for Julie Morris’s book every few weeks when I’m looking to mix it up!

7. Gift Card to Healthy Food

It can be hard to find healthy food when you’re on the go so getting gift cards to health food store or delivery services like Eat Purely can be the perfect gift. Eat Purely is one of my favorite ways to order fast healthy food, since you have a bunch of fresh, locally sourced meals to choose from and it is delivered in about 20 minutes! Use my code ROSANAR1 for $20 (almost two meals!) credited to your account.

8. Post-Workout Kit


Especially for the workout fiend on the go, putting together a mini-post workout kit with dry conditioner, perfume, and a couple of their favorite goodies is really thoughtful and something they’ll definitely put to good use. If you don’t have time to make one from scratch, this one is a good start!

There are so many amazing gifts out there for the health nut in your life, but these are just a few of my favorite ideas!
