1. Aged Balsamic Vinegar
Drizzle it on roasted vegetables, fresh fruit and cheeses.
2. A Healthy Mind and Body Basket
“I would love to give or receive a healthy mind and body basket – something that says, ‘Hey, take a break and relax tonight.’ It would contain a mix of soothing self-care goodies like a bottle of prosecco, an adult coloring book and markers, a yummy dark chocolate indulgence, an iTunes gift card for a movie rental, a pair of cozy winter socks and an engrossing book. People tend to get so busy this time of year that they forget to take care of themselves. I love the idea that someone is looking out for you and helping you stay healthy in a fun, holistic way.”
-Caroline Kaufman, registered dietitian nutritionist and founder of CarolineKaufman.com, where her motto is “Eat Better, Stress Less”
3. A Health-Related Donation
“I would love to receive gift donations to organizations such as the Environmental Working Group and the Natural Resources Defense Council that work to protect and support organic and sustainable food systems and educate the public about the best choices for human and environmental health. It’s a gift that can make a difference today – and for our future.”
– Cynthia Sass, registered dietitian nutritionist and author of “Slim Down Now: Shed Pounds and Inches With Pulses – The New Superfood”
5. An “Ice-Cream” Machine
A Yonanas! This magical machine turns 100-percent fruit into a scoop of a creamy, ice cream version of itself – without having to add sugar and cream.
6. Measuring Spoons
The little things in life can bring great joy. For most healthy eaters, a set of small-size measuring spoons would be a welcome addition to their kitchen.
7. A Monthly Baking Subscription
“Sure, I might be biased because my son is affiliated with the company, but I’d still love to give and receive a subscription to Baker’s Cousin, which hosts nation-wide themed baking competitions each month that are judged by culinary pros.”
– Bonnie Taub-Dix, registered dietitian nutritionist, creator of BetterThanDieting.com and author of “Read It Before You Eat It”
8. A Monthly Literary Subscription
Monthly literary subscription boxes and gift cards for use at independent bookstores. Instead of resorting to chocolate or booze to feel better or escape, why not read a good book.
