Healthy Gift Baskets
A Unique and Meaningful Gift Idea…
Healthy Gift Baskets are the perfect gift for those who already live a healthy lifestyle or for those who are on their journey to attaining good health. There is no better gift than the gift of good health! You can easily create your own healthy gift baskets with a theme tailored to that special someone.
Healthy gift baskets would be perfect for anyone on your list! Think outside the box (or “basket”) this year. Who really needs another shirt, sweater, or tie? These are just material things that are not very meaningful or unique. Most times our loved ones won’t even remember these presents we gave them. So, why not make it a useful gift that will improve their health.
I am not talking about a fruit basket either! These are boring and in most cases, non-organic and full of pesticides!
Here Are Some Healthy Gift Basket Ideas…
Here Are Two Examples:
#1-Home Spa Basket
I used a nice purple wicker basket. I prefer nice baskets that people can reuse instead of a holiday basket that they can only use once a year! I added several of the items that I mentioned above, including organic body wash, candles, loofah, neck pillow, a magazine, and bath salts.
Instead of buying bath salts which can be VERY Expensive, I made my own with Epsom salts and essential oils. Just add Epsom salts to a clear party favor bag (you can buy these bags in packs of 25 to use for recipe baskets as well!) Then, add 10 drops of lavender oil and/or 5 drops of eucalyptus oil to the salt. Chamomile and ylang ylang are other oils that have a relaxing affect! Shake it up to mix well, and tie a ribbon around it. Voila! You have therapeutic bath salts for a fraction of the price you pay in stores.
#2 Recipe Basket- Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal
For this basket, I typed up the Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal recipe from my website. I mounted it on green paper and added a few red jewels (from my scrapbooking kit) to add a nice holiday touch to it.
Then, I put several of the ingredients in clear party bags and tied them with a ribbon. I also added the book, Forks Over Knives that contains many healthy recipes, including an oatmeal recipe. If you are going to include the book that the recipe came from, you can add a post-it to that page with a note that says, “Try this!”.
