Are you looking for gifts for a friend starting a weight loss routine? When a friend is going on a diet, the object is not to insult but to encourage. Why not encourage with a present? There are many gifts to be bought in many different price categories. I researched and found what would be most useful. Here are the best gifts for a friend starting a weight loss routine.
1 Water Bottle (under $10.00)
For the friend to get into the habit of taking water wherever they go.
2 Iced Tea Maker (under $50.00)
As an alternative to water, black, green and white tea are all healthy. Good to carry in the above water bottle too.
3 Cookbooks (under $20.00)
Does she get take-out a lot? Goes through the drive-thru? This will get her to get comfortable in her kitchen and obviously make something homemade and healthy.
4 Crockpot (under $50.00)
Is she on-the-go all day? She can get it ready in the morning and then come home to something yummy without the STRESS which is known for the over-production of cortisol, causing the worst body fat - belly fat.
5 Meal Prep Containers (Pyrex or Rubbermaid) (under $20.00)
Maybe she can learn how to meal prep on one of the many food blogs, then voila! Simply take a container out and cook. This gift goes good with the crockpot or cookbooks.
6 Nutritious Gift Certificate (healthy Restaurant or Health Food Store) (any Amount)
Maybe she would never treat herself to a restaurant or splurge at a health food store. Maybe she only shops at dollar stores.
7 Healthy Magazine Subscription (under $35.00)
What better way to educate than with a magazine with all the latest diet news every month.
8 Grown-up Lunch Tote (under $15.00)
Kids need lunch boxes and so do adults! Again, she can stop going through the drive-thru and pack a nice healthy lunch. This present goes well with the water bottle.
A nice gift from the heart just might be the encouragement she needs. Cannot afford to buy right now? Offer yourself to be an accountability partner. A gift that keeps on giving!
You are being a true friend and that is what she needs right now. Not someone competing, trying to be better or saying, "Ha Ha. I am skinnier than you".
