With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, chocolates and sweet treats may be your go-to gifts for the big day, but they aren’t going to be doing your partners health any favours in the long run. Wellness gifts, on the other hand, will give your significant other a boost that will last longer than a day.
We have compiled five gift ideas that would certainly earn you the much-wanted brownie point for life. Check out these fun Valentine’s gift ideas to keep your partner looking forward to keeping fit and healthy.
A smoothie on the go
Save your partner time, effort and coins with a delicious on-the go smoothie. With a mini portable blender, they can have a healthy breakfast whether they'd be in the office, stuck in traffic or on the run. What’s more, if they need to stow it away, it can comfortably fit in their bag. They’ll be able to blend fruits, protein shakes, and even ice wherever they may be.
With its USB charging capability, fully charged, the blender can last for approximately 10 to 12 uses until a recharge is required. It can charge to full capacity in two hours, especially with #Load-shedding now being an every other day occurrence.
To help relieve pain and stiffness
After an intense workout, a gentle massage to relieve post workout soreness or any muscle/bone pain is ideal. Get your partner an acupressure mat that will stimulate the release of endorphins and oxytocin; the body’s “feel good” chemicals, naturally released during exercise. The more endorphins and oxytocin flowing the better they will feel. These hormones also help with relaxation and will help them fall asleep. What’s more, you can take a break from giving them those sometimes exhausting massages – this is most definitely a win-win!
To help prevent foot blisters
If your partner has ever had trouble with developing blisters after long runs or hikes, they'll probably appreciate uniquely designed socks that support their feet during long periods of exercising.
Perfect for runners and walkers, blister resistant socks are designed to help prevent foot blisters by reducing friction and absorbing moisture away from the feet. They keep the toes separated while supporting proper alignment.
Keep hydrated on the run
It’s nearly impossible to keep a water bottle in hand while trying to exercise or run. But using a belt with bottle holders, you can do just that. Spoil your partner with a belt to safely keep all their belongings, including their water bottle, to make it easier for them to get around, minus the extra luggage.
For sun and eye protection
Should your partner choose to do outdoor exercises for the day, getting them protective sports eyewear will help prevent injuries and allow them to continue exercising safely. Help minimise injury with light, easy to carry and flexible sunglasses that boast full UV protection for outdoor action, like fishing, climbing, cycling, driving, etc. Before purchasing, ensure the eyewear will be comfortable and provide sufficient eye protection.
