Healthy Holiday Gift Guide
ON THE MOVE
Erica Sara Designs Race Bling: From personalized charms, to beautifully engraved tags, to stacked rings and other gorgeous jewellery, Erica Sara Designs are the perfect personal touch to celebrate a fitness accomplishment. In fact, I got my own when I completed my first half marathon and it serves as a lovely reminder that you can accomplish whatever you set your mind to.
Lululemon’s “The Mat”: This yoga mat is comfortable, has great traction and is reversible, giving you the choice of the surface for your practice. And it comes in lovely colours, too.
Foam roller: Regardless of your fitness level, foam rolling is indispensable for relieving muscle knots, loosening tight muscles and ultimately, preventing injuries. Your athlete will thank you.
Garmin GPS-enabled watch: This model is great for tracking speed and distance and much more accurate than your average accelerometer or shoe clip. Other models include added features such a heart rate monitor or interval training assistance.
Speed Rope: Not only is this the perfect stocking-stuffer, it’s one of the most underrated pieces of exercise equipment: the speed rope uses-up very little space, is fun to do and will having you working-up a sweat in minutes. Get one for everyone in your family.
IN THE KITCHEN
Breville Fountain Plus Juicer: To squeeze extra nutrition into their day. If you’re introducing someone to juicing, this model is a good place to start. For the avid juicer looking for an upgrade, a slow juicer, which imparts more pulp and fiber, is a great choice .
Spiral slicer: This handheld spiralizer is neat gadget used to make vegetable noodles and a great stepping stone to heavy-duty models.
Molcajete: This mortar and pestle is a unique gift (quite literally), carved from volcanic rock, and a fantastic kitchen tool for crushing spices, chia seeds, making pesto or serving authentic guacamole.
Matcha Set: Matcha is a deliciously fresh and sweet tea made from milling green tea leaves into a powder, delivering on flavour and nutrition with a hefty dose of phytronutrients. This matcha set is perfect for the tea lover or health guru who wants to make their own matcha at home.
