The best gift you can give anyone for their birthday is a gift you know they will use and enjoy. A health nut would probably not appreciate a box of candy, but they are likely to appreciate exercise equipment or a massage. Here are some gift ideas that are perfect for the health nuts in your life.

Your favorite health nut may already have a yoga mat, but they make great gifts because they should be replaced periodically and many exercisers forget to replace their mats when they wear out. Yoga mats are available in a wide variety of styles and colors, so choose a fun mat that fits the personality of the person you are buying it for and include a matching tote bag to carry the mat back and forth to the gym.
Many health nuts love to exercise and don’t take the time to pamper their tired muscles. A certificate for an hour-long massage or pedicure is an excellent gift that they are likely to enjoy. Make sure you choose a massage center or spa that is convenient for the person you are giving it to so they are more likely to use the certificate instead of carrying it around in their wallet.
Experts are sceptical of the effectiveness, but kinesio tape is still a great birthday gift for the health nuts in your life. This tape is brightly-colored, and many people claim that it enhances their performance by supporting their muscles and reducing inflammation. The best kinesio tape for beginners is the type that comes pre-cut to fit different parts of the body.
A Blender or Juicer
A juicer or blender is an excellent gift for any health nut that doesn’t already have one. Most people who are very health-conscious enjoy making smoothies using fruits, vegetables and protein powder. These drinks make an excellent snack either before or after a workout. Make sure that the appliance you purchase is high-quality and easy to use so the recipient doesn’t get frustrated with it the first time they try to make a protein shake.
Most health nuts can never have too many pairs of high-quality headphones. Listening to music during a workout is a must for most people and each pair of headphones may only last for a few months before they are worn out. You can combine the headphones with an iTunes gift card for a useful birthday gift that is fun and unique.
