Happy Healthy Holiday Season from Go Healthy Houston! Join Go Healthy Houston this holiday season in giving the gift of health to your loved ones! Check out this fun variation of “St. Nicholas comes to Town”.

T’was two weeks before Christmas, and all through Houston
The people are searching for gifts to give this holiday season.
The stores are stocked and full to the brim,
But your search for gifts is looking grim.

Your family, friends, and co-workers know what to give you,
But you are not a gift giving guru!
Here are some gift ideas for you,
To help your loved ones get healthy too!

For the person who likes to plan,
Glass storage containers will make you their biggest fan.
And an insulated lunch box will keep thing cool,
These are a great meal prepping tool!

For the person that wants to eat healthier,
An at home kitchen herb garden kit will make them wealthier!
Try a cook book, like this one here,
And help that unwanted weight disappear!

For the person who can’t handle stress,
A positivity journal is sure to impress.
A meditation guide, at home blood pressure monitor, or stress ball,
Will help your loved one stay calm for the long haul.

For the person that loves being active,
Wireless head phones are always attractive.
A running belt, resistant bands, or reflective bike light,
Will all help them reach a new athletic height.

For the person that hates being active but knows that they should be,
An affordable pedometer to track their steps on their next shopping spree.
Try an active video games or exercise DVD,It’s sure to get them up and shaking their booty.

For the person who is always busy,
A pressure cooker, microwave cookbook, and calendar will make them less dizzy.
A veggie, smoothie, or stress relief box subscription,
May be the very best gift I would like to mention.

Let’s throw some confetti|
For the person who is already healthy!
Gift them paper and pen to write their ways down,
So that we can share their healthy tips all around town!

Now you are ready to shop for Christmas,
Collecting all the goodies just like St. Nicholas!
Helping your friends and family thrive,
You are surely the queen of the beehive.

Your Christmas celebration will be a little flimsy,
If you forget what is hung on the chimney.
Hair bands, lip balm, and nail buffers,
Are great healthy stocking stuffers.

Nothing is better than spreading joy,
And health is so much greater than a toy
When you share health stay merry and bright,
Singing “healthy Christmas to y’all, and to y’all a good night!”
