For those of you who cringe at the thought of braving the malls this Christmas, your local health products store has transformed itself into a boutique of health and wellness.
Health food retailers are aware that their products are not the first things consumers think about when purchasing gifts. In response to that thinking, First in Natural Health stores, which are located throughout Canada and are members of the Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA), will promote the Gift of Health gift packages. Pre-made packages, such as the "Vegetarian Lovers Gift of Health" and "A Good Night's Rest Gift of Health," will be filled to the brim with various health products.
"We want health products, which benefit the user by providing natural vitamins, minerals or supplements, to be consumed by as many people as possible," states CHFA President Donna Herringer. "The sooner Canadians discover the health benefits of natural products, the healthier Canadians will be. Christmas, a birthday or any special occasion is the perfect time to give the Gift of Health."
So whether your holiday gift list includes an athlete, a busy mom that needs some relaxation time, a husband that needs pampering or a child looking for the sweet things that make Christmas memorable for us all, look to your local health food store for all your gift needs.
Today's health products stores contain a lot more than they used to. Look for yoga tapes and mats, beauty products, gorgeous tea sets and kitchenware, natural cotton and hemp clothing, natural pet products, specialty foods, natural paper notebooks and notecards, beeswax candles, fabulous cookbooks, and delicious organic chocolate, peppermints and licorice.
And don't be shy to ask for suggestions. Health food retailers are trained in the art of combining luscious items from throughout the store. Whatever your price, they've got what you need.
For the ultimate gift this holiday season, give the Gift of Health.
