We all know that it can be tough to maintain your figure at any time, but it is especially tough during the holiday season. All those family gatherings and holiday parties, all of the amazing meals and sweets, it is tough to stick to a diet and keep your body in check. Trust me, I’ve been there. It’s almost to the point where I have a winter wardrobe where I know my other clothes won’t fit.
That is why I’m putting together this list of holiday gifts that are great for women who are trying to lose weight. Mind you, this should be done sensitively. You need to know whether or not that this is a gift that the woman in your life would want. Don’t just throw it in front of her as a silent meaning of “Hey, lose some weight.” Be supportive of her weight loss goals. If there is someone in your life that has expressed this ambition, these could make great gifts.
(But don’t make this all your gifts – mix it in with nice things!)
Christmas Gifts to Help Lose Weight
Here are a few ideas to get you started. You know her better than I do, so not all of them will apply to everyone’s tastes, but should be good to get your brain in the right line of thinking.
Subscription to a Meal Delivery Service
A lot of times we gain weight because we don’t take the time to prepare a healthy meal. Between the stresses of a job and family life, there just isn’t time to do all the grocery shopping and food preparation.
Consider buying her a subscription to a meal delivery service like Green Chef can make home-cooked, healthy meals much easier. And to top it all off – cook them yourself! The recipes are easy to follow.
One great way to get more vitamins in your diet is through blending smoothies at home. Buy her a food processor like SharkNinja and she can make a wholesome smoothie at the press of a button.
Do the grocery shopping for her and make it even easier! Plus, it’s not limited to just smoothies, as you can chop vegetables and make a delicious salsa and other great treats.
Sleep Therapy Machine
Another component of losing weight, as well as for overall health, is getting enough sleep. I talk about the importance of sleep for weight loss in another post, and it can’t be understated.
There are things you can do like making sure the room is darkened, turning off all devices, etc., but sometimes you need a little extra help to get some good slumber. I have this product from iHome in my bedroom and absolutely love it.
It has settings for different sleep therapy sounds as well as therapeutic light. It can also function as an alarm clock and FM radio!
Additionally, you could also consider getting her CBN for better sleep.
Any weight loss journey involves two things: the kitchen and the gym. I’ve covered the kitchen with the meal delivery service and the food processor above. When it comes to working out – whether it be in the gym or pounding out miles on the pavement – you need good shoes. She probably has a pair that are already worn out that she loves, so you know what she likes. There are so many options available on Amazon, as presented in the women’s athletic shoes seen below:
