Gifts are supposed to be a little indulgent. But if you’ve got a health-minded friend or family member on your to-buy list, that box of chocolates, bottle of wine, or steakhouse gift certificate might not be their idea of a treat. So what to get instead?
We say play to their interests. Clean snacks or subscription boxes, fresh workout gear, or high-quality supplements might not be everyone’s idea of a perfect present. But they might be exactly what’s on your wellness guru’s wish list. Here are 11 health- and fitness-inspired gifts that’ll win every time.
For the low carb snacker: Chomps Trial Pack
These aren’t your Uncle Joe’s jerky strips. Sure, they’re packed with savory meaty goodness – but it comes from 100% grass-fed and grass-finished beef, turkey, and venison flavored with real herbs and spices. And since the protein-packed jerky strips are free of added sugars or empty fillers, they’re the perfect between-meal bite for keto, paleo, and Whole30 eaters.
Best of all? This 8-strip variety pack comes in fun, mouthwatering flavors like Cranberry Habanero Beef, Salt & Pepper Venison, and Jalapeno Turkey so your clean-eatin’ snacker never gets bored.
$19.99 for an 8-pack
For the busy bee: Organifi Gold
You might not be able to convince your healthy hustler to take a day off from the grind. But chances are they’ll take you up on a tasty chance to unwind at night with this superfood tea. It’s packed with natural calming ingredients like lemon balm, reishi, and magnesium, along with turmeric to help fight inflammation and support a healthy immune system.
Wrapped up with a pretty mug for sipping, it’s the ultimate gift for encouraging the rest and relaxation they need to play hard tomorrow.

For the gut-health guru: Sculpt Nation Probiotics
Here’s a probiotic blend made with fitness buffs in mind. In addition to the usual gut-health promoters like Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, this supplement also serves Bacillus Coagulans--a bacterial strain that science has shown supports protein absorption and promotes recovery from exercise. In short, it’s a belly-booster and a post-workout support system all in one.

For the guy who doesn’t want to think about his workout gear: WOLACO Warren Short

For the health hacker: Tomahawk Ebekos BlueLight+ Glasses
Think of these prescription-free specs as protective sunglasses you can wear in front of screens. The lenses are designed to filter out the harmful blue light emitted from electronic devices to help relieve eye strain and fatigue, dry eye, and other tech-related discomforts. And since the acetate and wire rimmed frames look so cool, your recipient might just end up wearing these glasses all the time.

The variety pack offers a taste of the brand’s Tequila, Gin, and Whiskey Alternatives—and endless opportunities for crafting cool DIY no-booze cocktails.

And the ingredients are super clean to boot.
