We all know that person who just seems to defy all laws of physics and thermodynamics. Let's call them a Wellness Warrior. They're the type of person who runs a marathon and tries to win. They're the type of person who keeps fresh kale in all of their pockets just so they have a snack for later in the day. They're the type of person who bikes five miles to work, doesn't break a sweat, and still looks great when they arrive. Short of just buying them a head of cabbage, here are 10 gift ideas for the Wellness Warrior in your life.
How does your friend run 12,000,546 miles a week and still manage to stick to a vegetarian diet? The world may never know. When was the last time they slowed down and relaxed? Treat them to a massage at Body Technician where they will get the relaxation of a lifetime. Click here to save $20 on a first session!
