Shopping for a holiday gift? Why not find a gift that contributes to the recipient’s’ health and wellbeing? Folks who expressed an interest in eating better, reducing stress or finding a way to rev up their fitness routine may enjoy one of the healthy gifts listed below.

Before you make that purchase, however, think about your recipient’s reaction to your gift. After all, you want your gift to give joy — not offense. For that reason, avoid giving scales, diet books or gym memberships for folks who didn’t ask for them!
