As the Director of Behavioral Health at Hilton Head Health, I am always keeping an eye out for products that promote good health and make the pursuit of a healthy lifestyle a bit easier. Since giving health-enhancing gifts never goes unappreciated, consider a few of my holiday favorites this year:

Workout Lab Exercise CardsThese beautifully-designed waterproof Exercise Cards contain 40 bodyweight exercises, 10 stretches and 6 easy-to-follow routines – everything you need for fun intensive 15-minute workouts you can do anywhere – your living room, hotel, beach, park or the gym – without equipment or guess work. $24.95

The Tiger Tail: Turn sore muscles into happy muscles by helping relieve muscle knots, aches, cramping, spasms and stiffness. This stiff, foam roller is a staple at H3. All our trainers use it to warm up muscles, relieve cramping and help with muscle recovery after a great work-out. $34.95

Goodbyn Bynto Lunch Box: These lunch boxes feature 3 individually-sealed compartments perfect for portion control. In addition to being a great lunch box without the need for baggies, they work wonderfully for meal planning and storing leftovers in healthy portions. Take the guess work out of portion control – flip the lid and enjoy! $8.99

SodaStream Sparkling Water Maker: Are you or someone you love trying to kick the sugary, soda habit, but miss the fizz? Turn tap water into sparkling water in seconds with the SodaStream Sparkling Water Makers. You can even add a squeeze of lemon, lime or orange for flavored sparkling water with no artificial sweeteners and minimal calories. $79.99

 Yonanas Frozen Treat Maker: This is a perfect gift for someone trying to break up with Ben & Jerry. Yonanas is a small appliance that turns frozen fruit into a delicious, healthy soft-serve treat. The unit combines frozen bananas and any additional fruit or chocolate and instantly churns the ingredients to produce a treat with the texture of frozen yogurt or soft-serve ice cream, but without the additional fat, sugar or preservatives. $49.95

Freshology.com Gift Certificate: Need a gift for the busy professional that doesn’t have time to cook or for the health-conscious individual who doesn’t enjoy cooking? Freshology is an online, fresh diet delivery service. No more drive-thru on the way home. Enjoy healthy, portion-controlled meals delivered directly to your home. Prices vary.

ProSource Resistance Bands with Travel Case: For the friend that likes to stay fit but travels a lot, consider purchasing the ProSource set of 5 resistance bands with door anchor, traveling case and instruction manual. ProSource resistance bands offer five progressive resistance levels, making the set useful for everyone from beginners to experts and they are light and compact enough to travel with you anywhere. $35.99

Wake Up & Work Out Alarm Clock: This gift is just plain fun. If you know someone who has trouble getting out of bed in the morning, and needs a little motivation to exercise, then this is the gift for you. The Wake Up & Work Out Alarm Clock is a 1.5 lb hand weight that will rouse you with an alarm which won’t go off until you have done 30 bicep reps. Motion sensors inside can tell exactly how many reps you’ve done and only if you do them right. No cheating!!! $29.95

HiltonHeadHealth Meditations CD: Many people are interested in meditation but aren’t sure how to begin. The Hilton Head Health Meditation CD offers two, 15-minute meditations that are great for beginners, as well as experienced meditators. Featured meditations include energy healing and a guided walk on the beach. Combine the CD with a lightly-scented candle and a soft blanket. Voilà! You have the ultimate gift of relaxation. $14.99  (Also available on iTunes.)
