Instead of filling up stockings with junk and trinkets, aim for gifts that are fun, delicious, and have a health and fitness focus.

Bourbon-Spiked Peanut Butter

This gourmet version of peanut butter makes for a tummy-pleasing gift. It’s made with high-quality ingredients and has the same number of calories (and less sugar) than popular grocery-store brands.

Canned Cold-Brew

Give a cold, crisp and refreshing fair trade cold-brew with just a hint of pure cane sugar. This dairy-free offering from High Brew is free of artificial sweeteners and has only 20 calories per serving.

Cube Grater

This tiny grater is ideal for chocolate, ginger, citrus zest, cheese and spices. It’s compact and comes with a protective cover that can also serve as a measuring cup.

One of the healthiest condiments around! Mustard adds big flavor for a tiny number of calories and comes in a wide variety of flavors. Shop for artisanal versions like the perfectly spicy Wasabi from Stonewall Kitchen.

New Wave Bottle

Does someone on your list need to be better at hydrating? These gorgeous bottles have a unique shape and design for easy handling and cleaning (don’t worry, they still fit in a cup holder). You can also buy an infuser attachment to add the natural flavors of fresh fruit, herbs and vegetables.

Try:  Square Bottle
Artisanal Jerky

Forget everything you know about highly processed and overly chewy jerky and give your favorite foodie some serious cured meat. Krave is low in fat and exploding with flavor. Their new artisanal flavors are made with high-quality ingredients and are free of nitrates, and the taste is out of this world.

This simple homemade version will top any store-bought brand. It’s perfect for the baker in your life.

Make a batch of homemade salt to tuck into stockings, and don’t forget to save some as a gift to yourself. Experiment with flavors like Basil and Rosemary-Citrus.

Exercise Armband

This simple gadget is a game changer for exercise enthusiasts — it frees up your hands for those cardio workouts.
