Holiday Gift Guide for your Health-Conscious Family Member

3 minute read

The Health-conscious holiday gift guide offer ideas like gym memberships or juicers. But if you want something that can really change someone’s home and life for the better, start with the gift of Healthy Air.

With the amount of time spent indoors, it’s no wonder so many people suffer from allergies, asthma, and other illnesses. So whether you’re gifting to someone with a health problem or just a self-proclaimed health junkie, they’ll see the benefits from improved indoor air.

Health-Conscious Holiday Gift Guide:

Here is your Health-Conscious Holiday Gift Guide with gifts that keep on giving:

Air Purifiers

Air purifiers reduce airborne pollutants, allergens, microbes, odors, and more. Installed as part of your home’s heating and cooling system, they put you in complete control of indoor air pollution.

When your HVAC system fan is on, it delivers cleaner, healthier air not just in one room, but throughout your entire home. An air purifier can give the gift of clean air every single day.

Houseplants

Plants can act as natural air purifiers by balancing out the chemicals, humidity, and even mold spores in your air. Known for their ability to absorb carbon dioxide and create oxygen, indoor plants are an excellent and beautiful way to remove harmful chemicals from your loved one’s home.

Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers

Humidity plays a major role in the health, comfort, protection, and energy efficiency of your home. Depending on the region, time of year, and activities of the family, most homes need control over both dry air and excess humidity. AprilAire puts indoor humidity control in your hands with whole-home humidification and dehumidification solutions.

Beeswax Candles

Candles tend to be an easy go-to when it comes to holiday gift giving, but beware of the fact that scented candles are extremely hazardous to Indoor Air Quality and release all kinds of dangerous chemicals, like benzene, when burned.

Alternatively, beeswax candles, are chemical-free and burn with almost no smoke or scent, actually helping clean the air by releasing negative ions that can bind with and remove toxins from the air.

HVAC Filters

Proper air filters help reduce: dust and dust mites, pollen, pet dander, mold spores, gases, chemicals, smoke, and miscellaneous air particles. They are fairly inexpensive and can help prevent the spread of airborne pollutants when changed regularly.

Air Quality Tests

Pinpointing sources of pollution in the home is the first step in improving indoor air quality. Check out these at-home tests that can give homeowners peace of mind in their environment.

Posture Help

You can’t get all the benefits of Healthy Air if you’re not breathing properly. Poor posture is a major source of tight chest muscles, which can lead to more rapid, shallow breaths. This can be found in people who sit for long stretches of the day.

So for the office workers in your life, lend them a hand with tools like the “Upright GO”, which vibrates to gently remind the user to sit up straight. This position is more conducive to deep belly breathing and higher efficiency.

Improved Kitchen Ventilation

Cooking at home is a great way to eat healthier and save money. It’s becoming easier than ever with the availability of endless recipe ideas and fresh ingredients year-round.

If you have a friend who loves to fire up the kitchen every night, they may not consider the impact it’s having on their indoor air environment. Indoor cooking (especially heating oil, fat and other food ingredients at high temperatures), can release harmful VOCs into the air that aren’t always easy to quickly clear out.

Old exhaust hoods are often to blame, as they become less efficient when their filters get clogged and their fans wear out. Check out some of the best kitchen exhaust hoods, and help your favorite home chef breathe easy.
