With the holiday season approaching, millions of people will hit the shopping malls trying to find the best gift for their loved ones, friends or even for themselves. Indeed, Christmas is the season of giving, but this season can be also riddled with stress and worry. Imagine parties left and right, finding the right gifts for your loved ones, endless hours spent on queues to try things on or pay for them, plus the traffic around the metro – woooh! STRESS!
This year, I’m planning to have a stress-free Christmas, saving myself from the hassle of battling the crowds at the mall and instead, I opt to send a Christmas gift basket/boxes. And to make those presents more special, I’m planning to give the gift of health and wellness, a gift that shows just how much I really care.
Luckily, Healthy Options is bringing back the sense of goodwill with the launch of the Healthy Options Holidays: gift boxes that infuse timeless Christmas traditions with wholesome goodness.
“Holiday traditions remind us the value of selfless giving and caring for one another. That spirit of love becomes real when we help the people around us live better, healthier lives,” said Pam Suarez, Marketing Director of Healthy Options.
Starting at Php 595, each gift box is themed after one of the holiday’s most popular and meaning customs that have become symbolic of Christmas:
The Star of Bethlehem
The birth of Jesus was heralded by the appearance of a bright star, which guided Wise Men from the East to Bethlehem where the Messiah was born. Likewise, The Star of Bethlehem gift box can start loved ones on the path to good health with gourmet selections for a healthy Noche Buena feast.
The St. Nicholas
Better known today as Santa Claus, St. Nicholas was reputed to help the needy by giving presents in secret. The St. Nicholas gift box also comes as a surprise with delicious snacks and goodies to brighten the holidays.
The Advent Candle
Advent candles are traditionally used to mark the days leading to the Nativity of Christ. For a wholesome countdown to Christmas Day, The Advent Candle gift box is a welcome treat of organic goodies that families can share and enjoy.
The Evergreen Fir
With their leaves staying green all-year round, fir trees have come to symbolize everlasting life. The Evergreen Fir gift box sends the same message of long-lasting wellness and health with a collection of snacks made from all-natural ingredients.
The Christmas Angel
When Jesus was born, an angel appeared to a group of shepherds to announce the coming of the Messiah. In the same spirit, The Christmas Angel gift box is a godsend of gluten-free treats for people with celiac disease, wheat allergy, or gluten sensitivity.
While associated with kisses under its boughs, the mistletoe is an ancient symbol of love and friendship, as well as protection, healing, and new life. Packed with travel-sized essentials, The Mistletoe gift box is ideal for anyone planning a Christmas getaway.
The ‘Flower of the Holy Night’, the poinsettia figures in a Mexican legend where it blossomed forth from a bouquet of weeds offered by a poor girl to baby Jesus on Christmas Eve. Just as miraculous, The Poinsettia gift box comes with a selection of pampering essentials that are sure to make the Yuletide celebrations stress-free.
A season of health and beauty
For more personalized gift-giving, customers can curate their own holiday boxes by selecting from Healthy Options’ catalogue of festive food items. If it’s the ultimate in personal care they want, Healthy Options also offers a collection of Top 10 Natural Beauty Picks for Christmas.
“Gift-giving should reflect how much our loved ones mean to us. By showing them that we care about their health and wellbeing, we tell them wholeheartedly that we only want the best for them,” Suarez said.
