Time is ticking away. Only 7 more shopping days until Christmas. If you’ve put it off this long and really can’t find the perfect present to buy, how about a gift that keeps on giving? Here are some great gift ideas that will help your loved ones nourish their mind, body, and spirit.
Consultation with a Registered Dietitian: A meeting with a nutrition specialist is the best place to start when trying to meet your weight and health goals. But, beware of people who claim to be “nutritionists” but have no formal education or degree in the field. To find an RD in your area go to www.eatright.org and click on Find a Dietitian. Even better, U Rock Girl will be offering Personalized Nutrition Consultations beginning in 2011! Check back when the new website is launched on January 1st!
Personal Training Sessions: Whether you’re new to exercise, recovering from an injury, or just want to take your workout to a new level, working with a personal trainer will help you meet your goals. Make sure to find someone who is certified by ACSM, ACE, NASM, or NSCA.
Cooking Lesson:If you don’t know how to cook, it’s going to be pretty difficult to eat well. One or two cooking lessons (private or as part of a class) will give you the kitchen confidence you’re looking for. Look to a culinary school, stores like Sur La Table and William Sonoma, community classes, as well as private chefs.
Spa gift card:Nothing says, “Aaaah” like a massage, facial, manicure, or pedicure. Look to hotels, day spas, and your local esthetician for gift cards/certificates for a much-needed pampering servince.
