Best Valentine’s Gifts for Your Health-Conscious Honey
Valentine’s day is on its way and that means you’ve got to get shopping. It can be so stressful to find the perfect gift — especially if you’re a last-minute shopper.
Flowers, perfume, and jewelry are nice to get, but what can you really do with those? Why not get your partner something they’ll totally love and that will benefit their health? What kind of gifts would even be in that category?
Don’t have any idea of what to get them? Don’t worry, we at Atrantil have your back! Our list contains stuff your loved one actually wants.
So without further ado, here is the Atrantil 2020 list of Valentine gifts your sweetheart will adore.
Dark Chocolate-Covered Strawberries
If you still want to go with a more traditional gift, chocolate covered strawberries are the way to go. Chocolate covered strawberries actually help to support the heart and immune system.
Chocolate is full of antioxidants and polyphenols that help to reduce inflammation throughout your body. Since inflammation is a major cause of all diseases, gifting your sweetheart with these sweet treats is also benefiting their health.
Make sure to get at least 70% cacao chocolate when you’re buying this gift. Although it has a more bitter flavor, it carries more benefits and less sugar.
Strawberries are high in antioxidants and polyphenols that are great for your brain health. On top of that, they also are extremely high in vitamin C which helps to support immune function. Strawberries are known to combat oxidative stress which is a common precursor to chronic inflammation.
You can also look into a fruit bouquet for a fun alternative to flowers that’s healthy and edible. They typically offer chocolate-covered options as well if you want the added health benefits.
The new year didn’t start all that long ago, and many are still chugging away with their new year’s resolution of better health. See if your partner might be interested in a new style of workout.
Zumba, pilates, yoga, or kickboxing are great workouts that are fun and target different areas of your body. They’ll be able to try a fun new workout and you’ll be gifting them a healthier lifestyle.
Take Them Dancing
A romantic evening wouldn’t be complete without a dance. This can go along with suggestion number 2 by getting a membership for dancing exercises or even for a couples dance class. Or you can just plan a night out dancing.
Dancing has been proven to be just as effective — if not more effective — to typical exercise plans used.
Studies have also found that dancing with a partner who you care about makes for a more enjoyable and successful experience. This relays into a better exercise and longer-term commitment to sticking with the exercise program.
Vitamin D deficiency is an increasing problem. We get most of our vitamin D from the sunshine so doing activities outside can help to remedy this. Going hiking, biking, or just out for a walk around a bazaar can help to boost your vitamin D levels.
By doing an outside activity with your valentine this year you’re supporting good brain and bone health and remedying the sedentary lifestyle most of us have.
What’s more romantic than a massage? Most massage places will offer discounts during the Valentine’s Day season. Get a massage for you and your partner so you can both relax and reap the many benefits a massage can offer you.
On a tight budget this Valentine’s Day? Give your partner a massage at home. It was found that when giving massages, the person giving the massage experiences as much benefit as the person receiving the massage.
Keeping up with good health practices isn’t easy. However, it may be a little easier when you set goals. Fitness tracking devices make it easy to see how close you are to reaching your goal which makes it easier to achieve.
Most devices come with apps that offer training programs to help you achieve the goals you set.
Listening to music while exercising always seems to pump you up, especially if the right song comes on right when you feel like giving up. This phenomenon has actually been proven by scientific studies.
Music helps to improve performance and increase the enjoyment of whatever physical activity you are doing.
Get your active loved one a good pair of exercise-friendly headphones this year for Valentine’s day.
Fun Kitchen Gadgets
Being healthy isn’t all about exercise, it’s about eating right too. Sometimes it’s hard though when there are so many options that are more convenient. Technology is always evolving and it makes our daily tasks easier and more enjoyable to take care of — cooking is no different.
Get your loved one any of these fun gadgets to help them keep their healthy eating on track:
- Blender — smoothies are a better choice than juices when you’re going for drinkable fruit. Getting a blender with an on-the-go cup attachment makes having breakfast easier and healthier for the one you love.
- Spiralizer — these are great to have an alternative to wheat noodles. You can take zucchinis and other vegetables to make easy, healthy, plant-based noodles in a jiffy.
- Herb garden starter kit — herbs are a great way to add extra polyphenols, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to your diet and they add a ton of flavor. If your love has a green thumb, this may be the route to go this Valentine’s day.
- Kombucha brewing kit — kombucha is a great natural way to get probiotics into your diet. Brewing your own is a fun and healthy way to spend a lazy weekend afternoon with your partner.
- Matcha tea making set — matcha tea is a fun alternative to your everyday teabags. Since matcha tea comes in powder form there are different tools to make it. If you want to tap into the cultural aspect of matcha tea, get an authentic matcha tea making set and make it the way they used to in Japan. Matcha tea has been found to help improve fat oxidation, create a better mood and cognition, and fight cancer.
If you really want to support good gut health and overall body health, you’ll want to consider Atrantil. Your sweetie will love that it fights bloat and improves digestive function.
