Getting the perfect Valentine gift can get quite stressful (and we all know what stress can do to the body!). Even more so if your sweetie (and you) are of the health-conscious ilk. The usual candy and chocolate just won’t do. In fact, they probably want something that they could put to good use or that the two of you could use together. So check out our list of six gifts for the health-conscious valentine:
His and Her FitBits
If you guys don’t have this already, now is a great time to splurge on his and her FitBits. The FitBit HR is my favourite (and what I use myself) as it can track everything from your heart rate, steps, active minutes, calories burned, stairs climbed and much more. Aside from being able to track everything in its nifty app, you can set challenges between each other and friends. It’s a gift that keeps on giving.
Seeds to start a home garden together
Do you have a little room for a small home garden? Then why not plant a few things together? Buy the tools, seeds and pots, wrap it up with a big bow and spend the day gardening together. When you’re enjoying a delicious salad from your garden together, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you grew this together - just like your love.
I remember when a personal trainer friend of mine got personalised trainers for Valentine’s day, she was overjoyed! In fact they had his and her sneakers made for the two of them. This is a great way of showing your love for your two favourite things - your partner and staying healthy!
Couples healthy cooking class
Sign yourselves up for a healthy cooking class that you can take together! It’s a lovely way to spend time together, learning something new that you can put to good use in the future. Couples who learn and cook together, stay together! ;)
Perhaps gifting a blender might not seem super romantic, but the Magic Bullet isn’t just a regular blender. It’s a super blender. And when your sweetie gets an idea of just how much this baby can do, she/he will thank you!
Reflexology Foot Massage
This is a great gift for both you and your sweetie! You both have probably been on your feet a lot - working, exercising, running around daily! This V-Day relax with a good reflexology foot massage that will melt away all the stress! Or alternatively, give them a private foot massage at home if you know your way around the foot.
Enjoy your Valentine’s Day!
