With the holidays right around the corner and all the sweets lingering around every corner, make your Christmas gifts something that will make people feel good about themselves!

One of my favorite items that I have bought for many friends and family this year is the Vapur anti-water bottle. We all know how important it is to keep hydrated. With this product, it makes it simple! The Vapur water bottle is not only good for the planet, BPA free and easy to clean BUT it folds, rolls or flattens when its empty. Perfect for the person on the go! More importantly it stand like a bottle when full and has a handy hook on the side that you can hook to your purse, bike or bag. When you’re all done, you can roll up and stick it in the purse for an easy convienent way to stay hydrated.

You can buy it online or at Macy’s.

For those of your friends and family that are proclaimed Mac lovers, here is the chance to get something that will show them just how much exercise progress they make in a day. IPOD touch and IPhone has come out with a Nike + IPod application. This application works as a pedometer and tracks you on a gps throughout your run/walk and sends the information online automatically everyday to track your progress. With the application comes a nike sensor that you put into your specially designed Nike shoes. However, there is a loop hole for those who would rather not spend 100-150 dollars on new Nike shoes. Online you can find specially designed clips or pockets that strap onto your shoes that act the same way.

With healthy lifestyles during the day, should accompany healthy lifestyles during the night. By getting a good night’s rest, your body can relax and relieve stress and anxiety. For those who do not own a pedometer, I highly recommend getting one. This small device clips to you and tracks your steps, distance traveled, and calories burned. This product in particular is AMAZING. In fact, I’ll let it be known that I put this on my list for Santa this Christmas ;). The key difference between a regular pedometer and this product is it tracks your sleeping patterns as well. Another great thing about this device is it tracks your calories consumed.

FitBit.com states, “The Fitbit accurately tracks your calories burned, steps taken, distance traveled and sleep quality. The Fitbit contains a 3D motion sensor like the one found in the Nintendo Wii. The Fitbit tracks your motion in three dimensions and converts this into useful information about your daily activities.You can wear the Fitbit on your waist, in your pocket or on undergarments. At night, you can wear the Fitbit clipped to the included wristband in order to track your sleep. Anytime you walk by the included wireless base station, data from your Fitbit is silently uploaded in the background to Fitbit.com”

Enjoy giving these healthy gifts with a piece of mind knowing that you will be improving the quality of your loved one’s life. 🙂
