6 Holiday Gifts that Keep on Giving Good Health

The holiday shopping season is in full swing and the timeline for gift buying is getting short! If you’re looking for a present for a health conscious family member, a friend you want to gently nudge in a healthy direction, or something awesome to add to your own list, check out our 6 health promoting must-have gifts this season.

Jawbone Up ($170) or Fitbit Flex Wireless Wristband ($99)The sleek Jawbone Up armband doesn’t look like it does much, but it’s got all sorts of fancy health tracking functions, such as tracking sleep time and quality, exercise, and food and nutrition. It’s got great battery life and is perfect for the person who wants to stay healthy in style. Similar to the Jawbone Up, the Fitbit Flex is a health tracking gadget that you wear on your wrist while it tracks your fitness (steps and distance), nutrition, weight, and sleep. It syncs wirelessly with your computer and smart phone, which provides ongoing, motivating data about your progress. We love the ease and motivation of the tracking app and wearability of the new FitBit Flex. Plus, one of its biggest draws is the lower price point compared to the other two similar products (the Up by Jawbone and Nike Fuel Band).

Brookstone Aqua Zinger Water Maker ($24.99): Staying hydrated is key to feeling energized and happy, especially in the winter months when the air is dry. However, plain water sometimes needs some sprucing up. The Aqua Zinger water bottle system allows you to easily infuse your H20 with flavor using fresh fruits, herbs, and veggies. Add cucumbers, lemon, lime, strawberries, mint, and other herbs to infuse your water with tons of flavor, while adding little to no calories or sugar. This bottle is BPA free–– so there are no unsafe chemicals to worry about either!

Ninja Kitchen System Pulse Blender ($79.99): Having a high quality blender you can count on to make creamy cold smoothies in a flash is a healthy kitchen essential in our books. This one has a powerful motor for crushing ice and frozen fruit, plus various BPA-free attachments that you can use to make single serve, on-the-go smoothies, or larger batches if you prefer. It’s even got a dough attachment for special cookie or bread making projects! The best part? It’s affordable at under $100.

Spiralizer ($31): This cool kitchen tool turns veggies into noodle-like pieces that can then be cooked and tossed with pasta, or used instead of pasta. This is a great gift for a mom or dad trying to squeeze more veggies into the family’s daily eats. It’s also perfect for anyone looking to eat healthier and add more veggies to meals in appealing ways.

Herb Wreath ($40): Nothing kicks your dishes up a notch more than having delicious, quality herbs on hand while you’re cooking. They impart so much flavor to dishes, without adding a lot of salt or fat. Even better are fresh herbs that double as decor! That’s why we love this unique gift idea of a kitchen wreath made of herbs that you can use for a whole year! It’s got rosemary, thyme, bay leaves, and chili peppers–– all favorite kitchen herb staples.

Package of Yoga or Other Fitness Studio Classes (price varies): Group classes can be a powerful way to increase your motivation to work out and stick with it, but the bill can really add up, and many people can’t justify spending that money on themselves. That’s why gifting someone with a package of group fitness classes is a luxurious gift that will be truly appreciated. The bonus to this gift is that it keeps on giving in the sense that while the package of classes might last a week or a month, the motivation to stay active will (hopefully!) stick around.

A note from our CEO about COVID-19x

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
Jan
CEO, Bumble Bee Seafoods
