Musings: Ten Christmas Gift Ideas for People Trying to Lose Weight

Christmas, my most favourite time of year! I mean, did you see my Christmas jumper pictures from last year?

One thing that Christmas can always guarantee is food! Which is great, except for when you're trying to lose weight...




From the boxes of various chocolates in the office, to the homemade mince pies that seem to be thrust upon you at every opportunity and don't even get me started on all the delicious offerings that are at every twist and turn of all the various Christmas markets.

You just can't get away from food, food, food, food! 

But, the thing I want to discuss today, is the Christmas presents.

Giving a box of chocolates is a pretty standard affair at this time of year, but when you're gifting to someone who is trying to lose weight, it can be a bit of a double-edged sword.

Whilst a gift is always great, it can often be a struggle for someone trying to lose weight to receive a food item for Christmas.

Well, fear not! I'm here to put an end to that.

Here are ten Christmas gift ideas you can give to people who are trying to lose weight that aren't food related!

1) Socks

I'm sorry, it may sound like the most boring thing ever, but people do genuinely love a sock, especially now we're all a bit older. If you don't quite know the person then a novelty pair of Christmas socks are for sure something that you cannot go wrong with.

2) A notepad

Although we live in a digital age, sometimes it's just nice to write things down on a piece of actual paper, ya know? Plus, if people are trying to lose weight, they could always use it as a food journal...

3) A gift voucher

Many people see it as impersonal, but let's face it, sometimes, we'd just rather buy our own presents so that we know we'd definitely like it.

4) A funky pen

Guys, stationary is cool alright? And sometimes, you just want a funky pen to write with, ok? Now go and purchase that Reindeer pen that's been eyeing you up.

5) A mug

Everyone loves a mug. Whether they're a hot drink drinker or just like to store their pens and pencils in it, a mug is just the perfect gift. You could get all up for the season and get a novelty one, or just go down the classy everyday usage. The world is your oyster.

6) Bath Set

Now, I mean, I'm quite picky when it comes to bath sets because I like to choose how I smell, you know? But I know a lot of people would love a nice bath set so that they can settle down and have a nice relaxing time (away from the fridge).

7) A Christmas decoration

You could keep it classy and get them a decoration they will want to use year after year, or you could get them something so tack-tastic they'll never forget you. It's up to you dude.

8) A photo frame

If someone is successfully losing weight, they're gonna wanna be taking pictures all day long of their new slammin' bods, so do them a solid and get them a photo frame to help them show off to all their friends. 

9) Selfie props

As per my previous point, nothing is more fun than a prop in a selfie, am I right, or am I right?

10)  A puzzle book

Grown up colouring books are all the rage this 2k16, but I think that puzzle books have been neglected. You can get a comedy one, a Christmas focused one, or you could be daring and get a litte rude one. But hey, if people or working out puzzles, it takes their mind off of food, so ya know, we're all winner right?


Or, if all else fails, just give them a card, a hug (with their permission, obvs) and say Merry Christmas! Christmas is about caring after all. 

Oh, and if you are someone who's been given chocolate and you don't know what to do with it, why not check out this blog post? And if you do actually want to eat it, I have a little blog post that's keeping track of how it will affect your weight loss here!

Nowplease,send me your favourite none food purchases that I need to add to my Christmas list.

  1. OMG, Christmas is the worst for overeating. I can't help myself, I always think 'oh, it's Christmas, it's OKAY to eat ALL of this food' ha!

    Luckily for me though noone really gives me chocolates and if they do it's always Thorntons, which I can't stomach, so they don't get eaten. But I love this list and it definitely has given me some ideas for the folk in my life.

    Thanks sweet!
