This Season's 7 Hottest Healthy Gifts

By , SparkPeople Blogger
If there's ever a time to wish for an extra hour (or six) in the day, it's during the holidays. In addition to our normal work, family, and home obligations, we have all those seasonal responsibilities. That can leave very little time for yourself--and lead to excess stress that can interfere with your ability to reach your goals. To help streamline your shopping experience this year--which means more "you" time for healthy habits--we're sharing some of our favorite healthy gifts of the season. We think anyone would love unwrapping one of these!

Monster Isport Freedom Headphones: We love everything about these headphones: Bluetooth, wireless, sweat-proof, no cord--great sound. They're perfect for working out and durable enough for everyday use.

Cuisinart Compact Portable Blending/Chopping System: This is such a great gift for the healthy foodie in your life. It makes smoothies and protein shakes easy to make and take on the go!

The Spark Activity Tracker: The Spark is the only wireless activity tracker that fully integrates with the FREE tools, content and community on You won't catch me without mine--I love that not only does it track my steps taken and calories burned, but it also knows exactly which type of exercise I did!
