We recently wrote about how boomers embrace fitness as the cornerstone of general well-being. Just in time for holiday gift giving, we have access to the latest and greatest tech gadgets. The best part? Online shopping makes fighting crowds at the mall practically obsolete.
There are hundreds of apps out there to monitor exercise and train smarter. These make great gifts for boomers who go weak in the knees for technology. Inexpensive Smart Phone apps are great stocking stuffers and for those on your shopping list without a Smart Phone, we previously provided a good resource: Find Your Smart Phone.
For low-tech boomers, heart rate monitors, metabolic testing and health screenings make great holiday gifts. Gifts that support healthy habits include a personal trainer services, fitness club membership or fitness passbook for boomer travelers. Sports themed gift baskets, books, gear and gift cards are a safe bet, and we love this latest low-tech gizmo that should be under every tree. Also, donating to a favorite charity, always at the top of our boomer gift giving list, contributes to our well-being – living well by doing good.
