8 Perfect Holiday Gifts to Help You Get Fit in 2014!
My son turns 2 in January, meaning this is the first time he really knows something's going on during the holiday season. He avidly pointed out where each of our ornaments should hang on the Christmas tree and he tells me approximately 3,000 times a day that I need to turn the twinkling white lights "ON, on, ON!" He's not completely aware of the whole gift-giving and receiving thing yet, but I'm sure he'll catch on to ripping off the wrapping paper in no time. I struggle with what to buy him for Christmas, especially because he doesn't know yet he's "supposed" to get stuff. I don't want to set a huge precedent, but I still want to give him things just to see the joy on his face on Christmas morning. We've decided this year to give gifts that will benefit the whole family as well as gifts that will make us healthier, fitter, and happier. It sounds easy, but those are kind of big requirements to fill. Here are some ideas I've come up with that can make fitness and physical activity fun for the whole family, especially when we're inevitably stuck indoors during the long winter months.
