With more and more people jumping on the health bandwagon, the odds are you will have to shop for a wellness guru. Here are some gift ideas that will make any health nut’s holiday.

Facial masks started trending in South Korea but have since become a staple in skin care around the world. This gift removes the dirt, grime and toxins from the skin making it healthier, cleaner and more refreshed.  With varying scents, materials and price range from $2 to $10, making a great stocking stuffer. To find facial masks in Stevens Point look no further than Walgreens, Ulta Beauty, TJ Maxx and Walmart.

SPASH girls basketball team member Maddie Fink said, “I love face masks as gifts! They’re inexpensive but also really fun to do. I always feel refreshed afterward.”

Wellness is not only about physical health, but also emotional health. Notes to self socks are daily affirmations of how great you are, on your feet. According to the notes to self website, “Our socks and products seek to remind every person of their value, uniqueness, and potential to be their best.” With sayings printed on the socks that read, “I Am Awesome” and “I Am Strong” along with other positive sayings, you will never let your secret Santa forget how amazing they are. You can order them for $13 online or buy them at Beyond Ordinary in Plover.

Fitness centers have been a growing trend around the Stevens Point area the past few years. A one-month membership might be the perfect gift for the fitness junkie in your life. Planet Fitness in Plover has monthly membership starting at $10 per month. If going to the gym is not their thing, you can help contribute to their home gym. Yoga mats, dumbbells, medicine balls, resistance bands and weighted vest can all be found at local sporting goods stores, like Dunham’s, for under $25.

Stevens Point Area Senior High (SPASH) adventure recreation teacher Amy Steinmetz said, “Working towards a high level of wellness is absolutely essential to living a higher quality life. Wellness matters because everything we do, the thoughts we give energy to, where and how we spend our time, and the emotions we feel all relate to our well-being.”

Tis the season to take care of yourself, and with affordable gifts, you can spread the wellness to friends and family.
