Does your S.O. start each day with a green juice or smoothie, a dose of probiotics and a trip to the yoga studio? Or is your bestie constantly spritzing rosewater, rearranging her crystals (to better align her energy, of course) or seeking out the latest and greatest natural products on the market? Then these 17 Valentine's Day gifts are for them!
Valentine's Day is the perfect opportunity to give your health-conscious loved ones what they really want. After all, the midwinter, post-holiday time period is a great season to change health habits for the better and focus on feeling good. And whether it's organic chocolate, a new yoga or meditation mat, or just a super luxurious face balm for dry winter skin, these Valentine's Day gifts will make the recipient feel like they're stepping into a spa, even when just in the comfort of their home.
Want to take it up a notch? Pair one of these presents with a gift certificate for a facial, massage or other wellness activity. If it's for your partner, it can be something special that the two of you can plan together (that way, you get to tag along too!). Or, give them a subscription to an online service like Glo, which offers hundreds of yoga and meditation classes that they can do from home.
