Trying to figure out what gift to get the person you love can be tough — especially if they are not really into the typical flowers and chocolate. If you and your significant other would rather spend mornings hiking or doing a lift session versus watching a movie or do you like cooking healthy meals at home rather than indulging at a decadent steakhouse, then this list is for you. You may even get some ideas for yourself. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, here is a gift guide for the big day.
For The Fitness Lover:
A vibrating foam roller
If your honey loves to hit the gym, their muscles are most likely in need of some tender loving care. Foam rolling and trigger point has been the gold standard for helping increase mobility and muscle recovery. This year, that was elevated when a multi-speed vibrating foam roller was invented. The vibration along with the pressure helps to add another level of release and helps your muscles recover more quickly than regular foam rolling or stretching.
HyperIce Vyper Foam Roller, $199.00
Nextrino NextRoller: 3 Speed Vibrating Foam Roller, $99.95
Cozy and chic athleisure jacket
You know your significant other loves fitness when more than half their wardrobe is athleisure wear. To help them transition from the gym to brunch, get them a stylish jacket to throw on after their workout.
Music can make a good workout a great workout and even better when it’s wireless. Some wireless headphones also allow for voice technology that can help you change the song on your run with just a tap of the ear. Amazing!
A vacuum sealed stainless steel water bottle
A water bottle that can keep your fluids ice-cold or super hot for up to four hours is the perfect gift for your athletic honey. Whether they need some coffee or cold water, these bottles will keep their fluids at the ideal temperature. Some of them also come in creative colors and designs such a gold, wood or fluorescent.
For The Healthy Foodie:
Meal Prep Kitchen Tools
Healthy foodies always make sure they have their meal prep planned for the week to ensure they have made all their meals and can avoid take-out while at work. Make their meal prep a little easier with these amazing kitchen tools. The Instant Pot is by our favorite because it can cut cooking time by up to 70% and is so multifunctional.
Eco-friendly storage containers
If your healthy S.O. is also eco-conscious, they will love these eco-friendly food containers. They can replace any BPA-filled plastic containers or bags they currently have with these glasses and BPA free plastic products. The Jaragala jars are also pretty enough to double as decor.
Fancy mug for his or her matcha latte obsession
Is your S.O. obsessed with golden milk, matcha lattes or bulletproof coffee? This product is going to help them keep their favorite morning beverages at the perfect temperature at all times. You can even remotely change the temperature of the cup from your smartphone. This product screams the future, and we love it.
Ember, $79.95 (add on charger for $34.50)
Everything rose gold
Since a healthy foodie spends a lot of their time in the kitchen, give them kitchen tools they love. The color of kitchen appliances can take them from ordinary to special. One of the newest colors to be added to kitchen decor and appliances is rose gold. For any foodie, rose gold kitchen tools and appliances are just as great as jewelry.
For the Fit and Healthy Couple:
Take the spa day one step further
Instead of booking a normal spa day for you and your love, book some of the newest services out there that can help with recovery and overall wellbeing. One of the newest services to hit the market is cryotherapy which uses a subzero temperature environment to increase endorphins and blood flow to the muscles to reduce inflammation. If cold temperatures are not your thing, float tanks are also on the rise. A float tank experience allows you to float in a closed container for a total sensory deprivation experience to help release stress and relieve pain. Some other ideas: cupping, acupuncture, or guided meditation classes.
Healthy Cooking Classes
What could be better than a night out with your Valentine that includes learning new healthy cooking techniques and maybe even some wine? You know what they say, those who cook together, stay together.
