Immune Health and Active Living

Gift guides for COLD-FXers

November, 2018

With the holidays around the corner and last-minute shopping being a common cause of stress, we got you covered with gift-giving ideas or maybe ideas for your own gift list!

Blender

With the holiday season in full swing, many of us forget to eat healthy. A blender is a healthy addition for those always on the go, helping you on your way to optimal immune health. A blender is better than a juicer as it broadens the range of nutritious foods you can eat including smoothies, dips, sauces and even puréed vegetables. The ability to turn whole vegetables and fruits into easily consumed foods is a major plus. Did someone say gingerbread smoothie?

Fitness tracker

Fitness trackers have been on the market for a while now and continue to be a hot product to help people meet their health, fitness and lifestyle goals. Some trackers even have advanced sleep monitoring tools to determine the quality of sleep. Deep sleep is important as it helps your body improve its immune system. A fitness tracker is the perfect gift for that person who needs a little extra help getting their snooze on.

Yoga mat

While you only need yourself to practice yoga, the yoga mat has many benefits that can make your practice more relaxing. A yoga mat will provide comfort, improve balance, prevent injury and create a sacred space that will help you feel more connected to your practice. Whether beginner or advanced, there are many different mat styles to help fit your personal lifestyle need.

Wireless headphones

Wireless headphones are the perfect gift for the active COLD-FXer in your life. Say goodbye to tangled cords and frustrating workouts, as wireless headphones provide you with more flexibility and increased comfort during your workouts.

Smart water bottle

The holiday season can be an extremely busy time of year. From parties, shopping, cooking and baking, drinking eight glasses of water a day can be tough. A smart water bottle is the perfect gift for or anyone who needs an extra push to stay hydrated this season, and throughout the year. Available in nearly every shape and form, smart water bottles are specifically designed to improve drinking habits — some light up, while others send smartphone notifications.

Tech-friendly gloves

Stay in touch with the active individual on your list while they’re out for a run in the cooler weather. Tech-friendly gloves are all the excitement this season as they are stylish, comfortable and functional, protecting against wind, rain and snow. Tech-friendly gear allows you to stay connected and warm when you need to, regardless of the weather.

Dry shampoo

Dry shampoo is perfect gift to include in a stocking stuffer! Dry shampoo has many benefits and will save you countless hours getting ready. Many are specifically formulated to tackle post-workout hair, absorbing oils and sweat, leaving your hair refreshed and revived. No more excuses for skipping workouts because you have a dinner right after! Shake, spray and go!

This multi-compartment lunch box is perfect for packing healthy homemade snacks and meals for work or school which will be sure to contribute to overall immune health during the higher risk cold months. On top of having multiple compartments, this bento-box style lunch box is easy to clean so it won’t build up any harmful bacteria.

Journal

Sometimes it’s so soothing to write it all down. This stylish, functional wellness journal can help to track diet, exercise and sleep. Help someone on your list (or yourself 😉) stay on track during their journey to optimal immune health this winter season.

Silk sleep mask

Quality sleep during winter (a.k.a. cold and flu season) is important for maintaining optimal immune health. Sleep easy with a super soft and silky sleep mask to ensure a blackout undisrupted sleep.
