Health and Fitness Gift Ideas

So today's main post is just below, but I also wanted to let you know I've got a post up at Blogher on Healthy Holiday Gift Ideas. Long-time readers may be suspicious when they read the title: "Holiday Hot Buttons: Don’t Send the Wrong Message With Your Healthy Gift."

Does that sound anything like a Crabby McSlacker post title? Not to me it doesn't. I don't even know what the heck a "hot button" is, or where it's located, or what dire things happen if you push it.

Oh wait! I think I found it.

Whatever You Do, Don't Press This Button! It's Hot!

But if you're brave enough to click your way over to BlogherLand, you'll discover that the writing is mine, even if the title isn't. And thanks to those of you whose gift ideas I stole for the post! Most appreciated.


  1. I second the massage idea! A general spa gift certificate is always appreciated.

  2. Great point about the need to be a bit sensitive with gifts like these!
    In general, I like the suggestion of books & magazines, although the wine is probably a safe bet too :)

  3. I can't comment over on BlogHer, but when you mentioned monthly red wine, it made me think of this:

    ...which is totally what I want for Christmas. If Christmas in my family included gifts for grown-ups. Although I'd be happy to [continue to] act like a child if that would get me wine every month.

    I could even walk on over there to pick up my loot every month, and save on shipping.

  4. You can never go wrong with a massage!

  5. I suggest giving a four year old with any health and fitness gift. She (Hannah) will bring you to reality really quick with her comment about your BIG FAT Doodiehead BUM-BUM.
    Off to Blogher to readher.

  6. Yowza, I was just blogging about how to find the right gift for someone without sending the wrong message. Perfect timing!

    And, say.....what is wrong with a weekly delivery of red wine, huh???

  7. All your earlier comments disappeared! I let you know on the shoe post too. I made comments to both that are not there anymore. OH NO!

  8. I'm adding the monthy delivery of red wine to my list! A weekly delivery of dark chocolate (for its health benefits of course), would completel my list. ;)

  9. This is a great Guide to Fitness and weight loss
