For health nuts, the more nutritious goodness crammed into a day, the happier they are — so get ’em stuff to health-max out all their waking hours. Bonus: health-conscious gifts need not be the newest, most unique items on shelves. Fulfill their everyday wish list with gadgets and tools they wanted but couldn’t shell out for.  Here, our top choices for the health-aware at every price point.

Blow Off Steam

Health nuts know that unlike fruits, certain veggies (we’re talkin’ spinach, carrots, cabbage, mushrooms, peppers) become even more nutritious when they’re heated.

Plus, this cool, collapsible steamer is no counter-space hog. Trust us, no dust will collect on these babies.

Just Breathe

Every super-health-conscious type (or wannabe) swears by daily stress redux, deeply understanding the link between stress and illness. They’re not about to let anxiety make them susceptible to sickness. We all know the holidays involve large doses of nerve-fraying circus (aka family) activity. When worry strikes, it takes just a strong whiff of citrus, cinnamon, pine tree or lavender to return to Zenland.

Juice It, Devour It

Of course you knew it was coming. No shocker here. Juicers are every health nut’s dream — but what we often forget is that these suckers are pricey. As a result, many health geeks settle for cheap blender options that turn superfoods like kale into green sludge rather than liquified juice. If you want your lovable health nut to adore you, get ’em that juicer they’ve secretly been pining for.
