It's that time of year again, and we can't wait to share our top 10 gifts for Christmas. We found the best products that will put a smile on everyone's face and best of all these gifts will keep everyone active for the New Year!
Amazon Echo (2nd Generation)
If you want to make someone’s life easier and safer, this is the gift to buy. Echo connects to Alexa to play music, make calls, set alarms and timers. You can ask questions, control smart home devices, and so much more. What makes this an excellent gift for your Active Diabetic, or anyone with a health condition? If someone is in trouble from say an accident, a fall, or low blood sugar, they can say out loud “Alexa, call mom” or “Alexa, I need help.” You can set the Echo up to know who to call in case of emergency. You can also set your Echo up to remind you to test your glucose at the same time every day. We also like that the 2nd generation Echo comes in so many designs. Perfect gift for someone you love.
Sport2People Running Belt
If you are looking for the perfect gift for a runner, look no further. The Sport2People Running belt will work for men or women and hold everything you need on the run. There is plenty of room for your phone, keys, and glucose gels. We love that there is room for a small glucose monitor and your insulin pump. If you are going on a long run, you need to watch out for hypoglycemia, and this belt can help.
TrackR Pixel Bluetooth Tracking Tags (8-Pack)
Do you know a person who is always losing EVERYTHING? “Honey where’s my wallet?” or “Babe have you seen my testing kit?” We have a cool solution. The TrackR Pixel Tags can be set up on your smartphone. Put a tag on all the item you lose ten times a day. When you need to find your testing kit, keys, remotes, or head if it wasn’t attached, you open the app on your phone. We love that these tags can save time especially if you really need to test your glucose.
Bellabeat Leaf Urban Health Tracker
Of course, we are going to include health trackers on our list. There are so many to choose from, and it was hard to narrow the search down to just one. So we picked three different kinds. This one is a unique twist on a wearable device. It can be worn on the wrist, as a necklace, or clipped on clothing. So versatile and it has a stylish look. We think this is an excellent option for women who want to track their steps and calories without looking like they are tracking their steps and calories.
Fitbit Blaze Smart Fitness Watch
Another wearable device we love is the Fitbit Blaze. This watch has GPS to track your stats and map your routes. You can check your heart rate using the touchscreen, and you don’t need to wear an uncomfortable chest strap. The wrist-based heart rate monitor does it for you. We think this is a good gift for your active diabetic because you don’t have to wait for your watch to pair with your chest strap. We also love that there are so many wristbands to choose from, making it easy to create your own style.
Yoga4you Yoga Swing and Hammock
Do you know an avid Yogi who has been asking about a yoga hammock? We found a great one. This hammock will help take your yoga game up to the next level. It is strong, durable, affordable, and comes with two extension straps. It will hold up to 600 pounds and comes with an eBook to help them get started. We LOVE yoga for all its health benefits and having a hammock will increase those benefits. You will have more range of motion and a lot more asanas to learn. Check it out!
Nickelodeon Yoga Mat
It is never too early to get your kids on the mat. Children that do yoga are calmer, fitter, and have better balance. If you are looking for a way to get your children into yoga try these mats. You have the option of a green Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles mat or a pink Paw Patrol yoga mat. What do we love about these yoga mats? Both options show their favorite characters performing four different asanas. What better motivation does a kid need?
Garmin Vivofit JR.
Yes, even kids have activity trackers, but this one is by far the best. It boasts a one-year battery life, so you don’t have to charge it all the time. Your child can swim, play tag, and bathe in it. You can keep track of how much time they are sitting and how well they sleep. You can also set tasks and chores for them to complete like brush your teeth for two minutes, make your bed, or do the laundry. For each task, they complete they earn rewards. We love that this gets children up and teaches them about daily chores. Great job Garmin!
American Girl Truly Me Diabetes Care Kit
This kit comes with everything needed to care for a little girl’s diabetic doll. If you have a child with diabetes who loves dolls, this is a great way for them to care for their doll’s health. It can be difficult for children with diabetes to feel like everyone else. Having a doll that is more like them can help. We love this gift idea because we think it’s a great teaching tool for smaller children.
Type 1 Superstar Bear
Bluetooth enabled toys are becoming very popular. Here we have the Type 1 Superstar Bear with Bluetooth enabled storytelling ability. The head of the bear moves while it tells stories and you can even record personal messages for the bear to say to your children. What we love the most is that a portion of each sale goes to JDRF!
We here at Active Diabetics love all our followers and we want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy, active New Year!
