Giving the Gift of Health This Holiday Season

bread for dipping. Another inexpensive option that can help people stick to a healthy diet is a soup mix. Soup mixes are easy to create at home by using rice, beans and a variety of spices.

Physical Activity Gifts

According to Richardson, "the least expensive form of physical activity that is accessible to everyone, to children, to adults, to older people, is walking. It doesn't require much equipment and can be done just about anywhere."

Richardson suggests some gifts that will help people stick with a walking program, such as comfortable walking shoes and sweat-wicking socks. These are critical for maintaining a walking program but can be a bit expensive, so a gift certificate could help toward the gift recipient's purchase.

Pedometers -- devices that count the number of steps someone has taken -- are a good option because they allow people to track their physical activity and are also relatively inexpensive.

Another idea is to sign someone up to receive e-mails from walking.about.com with free weekly walking tips. Walking.about.com is a good place to find reviews for all kinds of walking products including good walking shoes, socks and pedometers, Richardson says. For a little more money, you can give a one-year membership to a Web-based walking program such as Walkingspree.com or Sportbrain.com; Web-based services that offer a pedometer to track steps, diet-tracking features, graphs and feedback on your progress; and individualized e-mail coaching for a healthy lifestyle.

In order for children to stay healthy, they must be active, Richardson notes. It's relatively easy helping kids stay active without break
