Healthy Gifts For Women | MyFitnessPal

We all know that one woman—the one who either already loves all things health and fitness OR who is just starting to dabble in the wellness world. Maybe she’s always crushing it on the Peloton leaderboard or hitting a new PR in the gym. Maybe she’s just getting into healthy cooking and exercising. Regardless of her preferences, she’s about that healthy lifestyle—and so she deserves a gift that reflects that.

Whether you’re shopping for your mom, sister, wife, or friend, we polled MyFitnessPal staffers on their favorite gifts for health nuts. From the wildly popular Bala Bangles to a good-for-you meal delivery service, these are our top picks.

1. Sous Vide Precision Cooker

Give her a sous vide, and she’ll likely never look back. One of our dietitians uses hers to make chicken breasts and says she’s never had such well-prepared poultry. This Anova sous vide precision cooker is incredibly easy to use—just set it and forget it—so she can have healthy and delicious meals on the table with little added effort on her part. It even connects to her phone so she can keep tabs on dinner from anywhere. Pretty cool!

2. Ninja Air Fryer

If she has yet to hop on the air fryer bandwagon, there’s no time like the present. This programmable Ninja air fryer has four settings—air fry, roast, reheat, and dehydrate—so she can use it to cook almost anything, from homemade French fries to crispy brussels sprouts. Not only is it fast, it’s healthier than traditional fried food, with significantly less fat.

3. SodaStream

Maybe she looks forward to her Diet Coke every afternoon. Or maybe she’s more of a La Croix kind of gal. Regardless, she can save money, stay hydrated, and get her carbonation fix with a SodaStream. It makes the bubbly beverage of her choice in seconds with just the press of a button.

4. Banza Pasta

If carbs are her love language, she has to try Banza. Made with just four ingredients (namely chickpeas), it tastes and cooks like regular pasta but with plenty of plant-based protein and fiber. It comes in a variety of shapes—including penne, rigatoni, and spaghetti—and is even gluten-free. And no, it’s not lame to give a box of pasta (or two) as a gift, especially if she’s a pasta lover. It just proves you really get her. 

5. JBL Charge 4 Speaker

Encourage her to spend more time outside with her family (or even just by herself) with this JBL Bluetooth speaker, which is completely waterproof. It comes in a bunch of fun colors, from blush pink to camo, and runs for up to 20 hours on a single charge. She can jam out while taking the kiddos for a walk, going for a bike ride, or splashing around at the pool.

6. Matcha Tea Scoop

Matcha has become “the” drink over the last year or so, with plenty of influencers and experts raising a glass of the green stuff. Not only is it high in antioxidants, it also contains caffeine, so it’s a popular alternative to coffee. If she’s interested in trying out the trend—or if she’s already a devoted matcha drinker—this stainless steel tea scoop will help her measure out just the right amount for her smoothie or latte.

7. Vegetable Chopper

Between packing the kids’ lunches, meal prepping, and cooking dinner every night, she spends a lot of time slicing and dicing. Make her life (and healthy eating goals) easier with the viral TikTok veggie chopper, which can chop, julienne, and spiralize in seconds. It’s also dishwasher-safe for easy clean-up.

8. Reishi Gummies

Mushrooms are a big deal in the wellness world lately. Get her in on the trend with these apple-flavored gummies, which are made with 500 mg of Reishi mushrooms. Often used in traditional Chinese medicine, these mushrooms contain ingredients that may improve immune function and help relieve stress. One of our staffers swears by these for a good night’s sleep.

9. Factor Meals

Whether she works full-time or is home watching the kiddos, there’s a good chance she doesn’t have a lot of time to cook up a healthy lunch every day. Fortunately, Factor exists, which delivers nutritious ready-to-eat meals right to her doorstep. Each meal—including vegan and keto options—is designed by a dietitian and prepared by a gourmet chef with fresh ingredients. All she has to do is pop it in the microwave. 

10. SmartSweets

Satisfy her sweet tooth sans tons of added sugar with a pack (or two or three) of SmartSweets. The gluten-free plant-based treats are made with zero added sugar and zero artificial sweeteners—yet still taste delicious. Choose from dupes of some of your favorite classic candies. 

11. Liquid IV

According to one of our staffers, Liquid IV makes her feel like a superwoman. The drink mix is packed with electrolytes and essential vitamins that the brand claims helps increase hydration more than plain water. Available in flavors like strawberry lemonade, pina colada, and tropical punch, Liquid IV comes in single-serve packets that she can toss in her bag for an on-the-go boost.

12. Huel Protein Powder

There’s a lot of great protein powder brands out there, but one of our staffers’ top picks is Huel. Each serving gives her 20 grams of plant-based protein made from a unique mix of peas, hemp, and fava bean. She can blend it up in a shake, mix it into baked goods, or even use it as a sweetener in her morning cup of coffee. It comes in five flavors: vanilla, strawberry, chocolate fudge brownie, salted caramel, and banana pudding.

13. WÜSTHOF Classic Chef’s Knife

For the woman who wants to cook more at home—but lacks the motivation—this WÜSTHOF chef’s knife is a great idea. She’ll feel more inspired to whip up that healthy recipe she saw on Instagram (and put down the takeout menu) when she’s got this professional-grade knife in hand. It features the iconic WÜSTHOF shape, a super sharp stainless steel blade, and an ergonomic handle for comfortable chopping. 

14. Mush Overnight Oats

Women are notoriously busy—so making breakfast in the morning can be a struggle. Enter Mush vegan overnight oats, which require zero effort on her part and are a healthier alternative to the coffee shop drive-thru. Available in flavors like maple cinnamon and dark chocolate, they’re packed with whole grains, fiber, and protein. Bonus: If you’re a Costco shopper, you can buy a pack of these in bulk

15. Bowflex 552 Adjustable Dumbbells 

Adjustable dumbbells are a fantastic addition to any home gym setup, whether she has been building hers for years or is just starting to dabble in strength training. The OG Bowflex 552 set—which goes up to 52.5 pounds per dumbbell—is nice because she can increase the weight in 2.5-pound increments. They’re easy to adjust via the weight selection dial and, equally as important, comfortable to hold.

Fun fact: MyFitnessPal Premium gives members have access to a library of at-home workouts like Full Body Burn, Yoga For Everyone, and Stretch & Strengthen

16. OXO Good Grip 3-in-1 Avocado Slicer 

Sure, she could use a plain old knife to cut up her avocado for her daily avo toast, but this gadget is way cooler. The multipurpose stainless steel tool will help her effortlessly peel, slice, and pit the popular fruit. Maybe it’ll even encourage her to eat more avocado, which is a fantastic source of healthy fat.

17. Bala Bangles

Meet what could be the world’s prettiest wearable weights. A favorite among fitness influencers, Bala Bangles are fully adjustable and are covered in a soft silicone that feels good against your wrists or ankles. They’re a great option for everything from weighted walks to Pilates. Available in 1-, 2-, and 3-pound options, they come in a rainbow of colors, including blush pink, sage green, and sand.
