Giving the Gift of Health This Holiday Season
Date:12/1/2008

ing the bank. Simple items such as waterproof gloves or a pair of winter boots allow kids to get outside and become active while having fun in the winter weather.

Even some video games have moved away from the sedentary nature of earlier games. If you are buying a gift for someone who loves video games, consider helping them turn their addiction into a healthy pursuit. Video games that encourage physical activity with activity tracking, coaching and feedback are available for many gaming systems. The new Apple Wii Fit program and Dance Dance Revolution are two examples of games that will get kids off the couch, Richardson says.

Gifts to reduce stress

Due to the poor economy and high stress levels, holiday gift ideas that will help people reduce their stress levels are a great idea and can be done relatively inexpensively, Richardson says. Simple things that can help reduce stress levels include a gift of tea or some soothing, relaxing music.

Richardson also suggests that "one of the best ways to reduce stress is to help others, and there's going to be plenty of people this winter that need help. It's a great thing to do alone, as well as involving the family, to volunteer at an activity or charity this upcoming holiday season.

Instead of giving a child a toy, search for a kid-friendly volunteering opportunity in your community and do it with a child, work with a child to find a charity that he or she would like to support and send a donation in the child's name, or donate gifts to a shelter for homeless kids. "You may get some grumbling up front, but kids remember these kinds of activities long after all the plastic toys have broken," notes Richardson.
