5 Unusual Gift-Giving Ideas That Can Help Others Improve Their Health & Well-Being

The holiday season is fast approaching. In less than a month, the whole world will be celebrating Christmas and New Year’s.

When it comes to gifts, a lot of people offer “safe” gifts that are ordinary and routine, like jewelry, a sweater, a journal, or a snowglobe. If you’re trying to go against the traditional gifts people give, you can add a bit of twist and help your friends and family get fit and healthy in the process. Thus, consider offering gifts to your loved ones that can improve their health and overall well-being.

The last week of December is the week of giving and receiving gifts and if you want to be unique and different, here are some unusual and crazy gift-giving ideas for you to impress your family and friends with:

1. Personalize The Gifts

You might have read this one before, but personalizing your gifts is one of the most important and unique gift giving ideas of all time.


Make your gifts unique with custom stickers and labels. Packaging your gifts well and with these intentions provides a lot of impact to the gift recipient. Always make sure you customize your gift before handing it over to the person you plan to give it to.

2. Sleeping Pillows

Having a good night’s sleep largely depends on the quality of the pillow.

Although it has been a routine for many people to actually do meditation before sleep to unwind and relax themselves, guided meditation for sleep can only help if your pillow is of high quality and therefore supports a quality night’s sleep.

By giving this gift, you can help your loved ones improve their sleep and be healthier in mind, body, and spirit.


Make sure you gift them the best pillow for neck pain and headache in order to provide full health benefits to the gift recipient.

3. Full-Face Motorcycle Helmets

If you are living in a country where bike riding is one of the most common transportation methods, then you should be well-aware of the importance of bike helmets.

In developing countries, the motorcycle is often the family vehicle with small families of four or less easily traveling on bikes.

Though it is convenient and cost-effective, most of the fatal accidents of bikes happen because of low quality helmets.


Full-Face motorcycle helmets can be great gift because it shows that you care about the recipient’s passion while ensuring their safety.

4. Book Exchange

Books are unique gifts that are probably the best gifts you can ever give to anyone.

There are a lot of books on how to improve our lives that are sold in the self-help genre. Aside from them, you can also find great books in the DIY category.

By giving books as gifts, you can actually help the gift receiver to improve their life by providing them with books where they can follow the tips and advice.


My all-time personal favorite is The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. It contains some timeless wisdom on how to achieve your dreams.

Find books that really resonate with others and gift them to your friends and family to give them the life-changing words he or she may need.

5. Dark Chocolate

Chocolate is one of the most common gift exchanges, especially during the holiday season. Instead of giving milk chocolates, make sure you buy dark chocolates as gifts.

Dark chocolates are a little pricier, but they have tremendous health benefits. They contain powerful antioxidants that are good for the heart and general well-being.

Make sure you personalize them through customized gift wrappings and present them in a large amount. Leave a note to inform the gift recipient about the benefits of dark chocolate.

By replacing your traditional gifts with healthier alternatives, you can help your friends and family to live a safe and healthy life.

5 Reasons Why You Should Always Be Yourself

5 Reasons Why You Should Always Be Yourself

When it comes to being yourself, there can be a lot of pressure from the outside world as it tries to influence who you are. Living in a society that is constantly developing, it’s important for you to always be yourself from the inside out. When you deeply know yourself and the boundaries that you have set, you are more likely to experience a fulfilling and rewarding life. Without knowing yourself and establishing those boundaries, you can easily be pushed around and end up on a dirt path.

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it” – Matthew 7:13-14

You have the option of taking the path that is broad or taking the path that is narrow. You can either conform to what life wants you to be, or have the courage to remain true to yourself throughout the years. It’s definitely a challenge to have a strong sense of self when we are constantly getting distracted and being influenced by the media and society’s way of life. But if you want to reach your fullest potential in life, it all starts with being yourself.


Why should you always be yourself?

Because you will:

  1. Live in alignment with your values and beliefs. Being yourself is all about knowing what you believe in and the values that you live by. When you are not yourself, you will take on the values and beliefs of others. This is when you start conforming to other people’s expectations and way of thinking. When you know your values and why you do what you do, you will live according to your own values and beliefs.
  2. Establish your own identity. When you are able to have a solid foundation of being you, you are establishing your own sense of identity. No matter what happens in your life, you will always know who you are. There will be times where you may feel lost or distracted, but if you have your own identity you’ll be able to get back on the right path. Without establishing your own identity, you may easily conform and lose yourself.
  3. Build courage. It takes a great amount of courage when you decide to take the path that goes against the crowd. The reason why the majority of people take the broad path is because it’s easy. It’s easy to just follow the crowd. It’s more of a challenge when you stay true to yourself and establish your own identity. This challenge of always being yourself takes courage and inner strength. No matter what comes your way, you’ll know how to handle it.
  4. Establish boundaries. When you are always yourself, you know what your limits are and the boundaries that you have set for yourself. When people cross your boundaries, you will know. But if you don’t establish boundaries, people may very well walk all over you and take advantage of you. If you are always yourself and you establish boundaries, you are more likely to be aware when people start taking advantage of you. Create and establish your boundaries.
  5. Find focus and direction. When you are always yourself, you are more likely to have focus and direction in your life. Imagine someone who is constantly conforming to other people’s expectations. Do you think this person has focus and direction? I don’t think so. When you stay true to who you are, you are more likely to know the goals you want to accomplish and how to go about accomplishing them. You are able to stay focused and know which direction to take in order for you to accomplish your goals.

No matter what you experience in life, the only person that will always remain constant is you.
