Headed to a #fitcouple wedding this summer? Make sure their marriage is just as sporty and active as they are with a healthy wedding gift that they’ll treasure for years and anniversaries to come.
Fact: weddings are expensive, but thankfully there are ways to stay on-budget as a wedding guest, and you don’t have to break the bank to give the happy couple the wellness gift they’ve added to their registry. If you want to make sure that your present promotes a healthy lifestyle, and get’s them on a healthy track for life, here are our favorite health and wellness gifts for active couples: *Note: don’t surprise the couple with a gift you’ve chosen yourself. Make sure it’s something they want and will use, and always double check with their registry.*
The couple that sweats together, stays together! If the happy couple is all about fitness, and have worked in workout classes into their relationship up until now, consider what they would need to keep their gym routine going. If they’re the at-home workout type, consider a machine like a Peloton bike that they can use morning, day, or night to keep up with their schedule.
If they prefer the social aspect of workout classes, consider a workout class package that they can use at their discretion. Find out their go-to studio, or the gym they’ve been eyeing to join, and buy them a class package they’ll be able to use when they’ve returned post-honeymoon.
2. Couples cooking class
For that healthy eating duo, help them step up their cooking game with a class at the nearest cooking school (pro tip: there’s pretty much one in every major city). You can choose a style of cooking you know they’ll like, or a specific cuisine that they’ve been craving, and book them a spot for two for a cooking demonstration.
It’s the optimal gadget every healthy eater craves (but not all can afford), so take this special occasion to splurge on a swoon-worthy present. They’ll make all the soups, smoothies, and juices they crave, plus more.
4. Matching fitness trackers
They can measure their heart rates, track their workouts, and even text each other thanks to this his-and-hers gift that’ll keep them totally in sync. Depending on their goals (whether they’re runners, swimmers, or just like fitness in general), you can find the perfect fitness tracker for them that’ll keep them connected from the very start of their new adventure. Splurge: Apple iWatch. Save: Garmin or Fitbit
5. A “honeyfund”
Don’t want to gift a physical present? Enter, the honeyfund, a registry that’ll let you pay for, or chip in for, an adventure for the couple. Whether it’s on their honeymoon, or after their return home, you can pay for an adventure that they can share together. Think a hotel upgrade, a couple’s massage, or a zip lining afternoon. You can also contribute to a down payment on their first home together. The gifting options are fairly endless, but if your adventurous couple likes the thrills, you might be able to comp their skydiving session, just like that.
