Health and Wellness Gifts That Actually Make the Perfect Presents for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and for those of us with a special someone to celebrate the lovey-dovey day with, so is the need to find the perfect gift to show that someone how you feel. Sure, there are the usual options (the chocolates, the flowers, the jewelry), but if you ask us, nothing says “I love you” quite like a gift with health at its core. (If you think we’re seriously about to make the case for why a dumbbell or a pack of vitamins is romantic, well, brace yourself because yes, yes we are.) The way we see it, caring about someone means that you care about their wellbeing, and when you care about their wellbeing. So yes, while we’re all about a box of chocolate truffles come V-Day, we say why not opt for a fitness- or nutrition-oriented gift to show your special guy or gal that you want them to feel as great as they make you feel? Plus, in addition to the less-than-romantic finds (think: a blender for morning smoothies, or a collagen protein powder for a nutritional boost), you can go for wellness gifts that easily pair health with romance (think: “sex dust” and sensual body polish). Here are a few of our favorite wellness gifts that we think give the cliché options a run for their money (and romance factor).
