Festive seasons are almost as good as another excuse to binge on processed, fried and other sugar-high unhealthy varieties of food. We end up gifting each other cakes and cookies- high in sugar and other processed ingredients. But let’s make a change this festive season. Let’s gift our loved friends and family something wiser, better and definitely healthier. Vitamins are a brilliant choice! No, you don’t have to give them an ugly jar of pills. Here’s a list of all the creative ways you can gift more health to your loved ones.
The Vitamin Seed basket
Pick a basket of your choice and fill it with different kinds of edible seeds. Chia, Pumpkin, Quinoa, Flax, Black sesame, white sesame, Sunflower, Hemp and Watermelon seeds are the most commonly available varieties. They come in different size and quantities. So you can combine them according to your preference. These seeds are loaded with vitamins, omega-3, fibre, potassium, Iron and magnesium.
The Vitamin Fruit basket
If you don’t want to gift just a fresh fruit basket, add some dried berries and dry fruits to the basket. Dried blueberries, gooseberries, blackberries and cranberries are extremely rich sources of antioxidants. Rarer fruits that you can look for are Acai berries and Goji berries. If these aren’t available in your locality, look for their supplements. You could add a set of cold pressed juices and edible oils to it. Vitamin rich fruit pastes and powders are also available.
The Vitamin Kit
This basket is a splendid idea if you don’t want to stick to edible forms of vitamins. Combine vita-nourishing skin and scalp creams, vitamin enriched lotions, vitamin cream for nails and cuticles, vitamin infused shampoos and conditioners, vitamin skin and hair serums. You can also pick the organic or chemical free variety. For instance, if you want to pick a good vitamin rich moisturizer from an organic counter, you can look at almond oil infused moisturizers or olive based ones.
Pick something healthier for your loved ones this Christmas. Help them get healthier and live cleaner this festive season.
