With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, many people are starting to think about what to get their husbands, wives, boyfriends and girlfriends for the holiday. Of course, the most traditional and expected gifts are flowers and chocolate, but there are lots of other creative ways to express your love and your commitment to a naturally healthy lifestyle.
Here are some Valentine’s Day gift ideas to kick off the new year in a healthy way with your partner.
Fitness Tracker Device
If your partner has been wanting to get more active and exercise more, a wearable fitness tracker makes a great gift. You can find stylish fitness watches that go with any outfit while keeping track of steps, calories burned, distances walked, heart rate, and much more. If you each have a fitness watch, you can keep up with each other’s progress and encourage each other to move more throughout the day.
Non-Alcoholic Wine or Beer
Lots of couples share a bottle of wine on Valentine’s Day, but for a healthier alternative, consider giving your partner a bottle of non-alcoholic wine instead. Beverage producers have made huge strides in improving the taste and quality of non-alcoholic wines and making them more like the real thing with fewer health risks and no hangovers.
Try a sparkling non-alcoholic wine for the Valentine’s holiday, such as St. Regis Sparkling Brut or Chateau De Fleur Non-Alcoholic Sparkling Wine. There are also some excellent non-alcoholic beer options available from Athletic Brewing Company and other beer-makers if you prefer something hoppy and refreshing.
Healthy Cooking Class for Two
It’s easy for couples to get into a rut with their dinner routines and rarely give a second thought to cooking meals. To inspire you both and plan a fun activity together, find a healthy cooking class to sign up for. Check with your local community centers and culinary schools to see what is available and perhaps learn a new style of cooking from another part of the world.
Essential Oils with Diffuser
Essential oils make wonderful Valentine’s Day gifts because they offer aromatherapy benefits and maybe even some aphrodisiac perks. There are many different types of diffusers that you can buy to send soothing essential oils into the air inside your home.

Meditation Accessories to Share
No matter who you are, what you do for a living, or what you’re going through right now, pretty much everyone can benefit from meditation. However, it can be a challenge to make time for meditation or get into the right mindset to do it on your own. Inspire your partner with a meditation-themed gift or two, such as a sitting cushion, crystal stones to hold in the hand, Tibetan singing bowl, or subscription to a guided meditation app on a mobile device.
