Provide the appropriate safety equipment (helmets, knee and elbow pads, etc.) with your gift and lay down the rules—both those of the sidewalks and streets and your own. ✳ Age-appropriate cooking set—Consider giving children their very own assorted mixing bowls and cooking utensils to help create delicious dishes in the kitchen. ✳ Physically active video games—Several companies have developed a slew of fitness- inspired titles—from dance to sports— to help blend health and entertainment. ✳ Books—Building vocabulary, keeping the mind active and imaginative, and instilling a love for reading early will benefit a child for life. WHILE COMPILING A "TO BUY" GIFT LIST THIS YEAR, CONSIDER CREATIVE PRESENTS INSPIRED BY HEALTH AND WELLNESS BENEFITS. Under the Tree ✳ Stocking-stuffer munchies—Substitute candy with popcorn, granola bars, fresh fruit, roasted nuts, and dark chocolate squares above the fireplace. GIFT-WRAPPED WELLNESS OPTIONS FOR ADULTS ✳ Gardening tools—Creatively arrange garden tools, seeds, colorful gloves, and a fashionable sun hat in either a large terracotta pot or a rolling garden cart. ✳ Assorted spice or tea collection—Encourage cooking experiments with a diverse selection of spices, or help gift recipients unwind with the warm aromas of tea. ✳ Bicycle—Adults enjoy a leisurely bike ride, too, and it's a great way to maintain physical activity. ✳Massage—Treat the mind, body, and spirit with a spa gift certificate. ✳Panini press— Help loved ones save money and avoid fast-food calories by gifting a sandwich press.
