Only a few days until Christmas Eve.
If you don't have all the presents together, you could get hectic.
Or make a good impression under the Christmas tree with healthy gift ideas.
One of the most important things in life is probably health - your own health, but also that of your loved ones.
Health usually also means a high degree of contentment and happiness.
If you are still looking for a few gift ideas for people who pay attention to good nutrition and fitness, you don't have to dig deep into your pockets.
A few ideas that cost less than 30 euros are sure to make everyone's eyes shine at the gift giving.
Experiences can also be given away, perhaps a gift idea for the men in your life?
By the way: If you want to save a little before the end of the year, you can perhaps claim a few expenses against your taxes.
Gift idea #1: Spices
A set of different spices is a good choice for anyone who likes to try new dishes - or want to give old dishes a new twist.
If you would like to make something yourself, look up the recipes for various spice mixtures on the Internet and simply make them yourself. Add a nice label and voilà: DIY spice mixture.
But there are also beautiful spice mills or even complete sets, for example arranged according to themes.
The "Indian spice set" (advertising link) with six different curry mixtures from
is around 30 euros, the
"Oriental tasting & gift set" (advertising link) with four different mixtures is around 22 euros.
Gift idea #2: To-go accessories
Anyone who travels a lot knows it for sure: at some point you’ll run out of bakers and the canteen doesn’t always have the best options either.
Even snacks in between are often only a compromise - and not always healthy.
In addition, eating out all the time costs money - annoying when you really want to save.
For people who are often on the go, it is often worth buying accessories such as leak-proof lunch boxes or bento boxes, light cutlery sets and drinking bottles or mugs.
The Mepal "Lunchpot Ellipse" (advertising link) is around 16 euros and is ideal for soups, muesli or salads.
The reusable “Klikk Etui” cutlery from Koziol (advertising link) goes well with this, for example – for 5 euros.
By the way: You can accept gifts under a value of ten euros – tax-free – from your employer.
A lunch box is ideal for preparing your own favorite meal.
Advantage: You know exactly which ingredients were used - and it's usually cheaper too.

Lunch bags that keep food cold (or warm) are also a great gift idea.
They are available in many colorful designs.
Gift idea #3: Cookbooks
Admittedly, cookbooks are a dime a dozen.
But maybe the recipient is a fan of a certain chef or even an influencer?
Because there are more and more people who are bringing their own books onto the market.
The topics of vegan or vegetarian cooking are often well received, as are quick cooking or baking.
Topics such as fitness or diet should only be given away if explicitly requested.

Gift idea #4: Books
Not only books about cooking or baking are good gifts.
You know that a person is currently dealing with a certain health topic?
Maybe there's a suitable title in the nearest bookstore.
Whether it's a kind of diary about life without sugar (e.g. sugar-free: The 40-day challenge (advertising link) by Hanna Frey, 17.99 €) or maybe it's more in the direction of mental health (e.g. mindfulness - the hidden Treasure in you (promotional link) by Patrizia Collard, €14.99) - the employees can certainly point you to the right department.
