Holistic health focuses on of all aspects of well being, to promote well-rounded health care.

If you’re low on cash this season and feeling creative, there are many healthy, thoughtful and low-budget gift ideas.

The following gifts aim to promote relaxation, rejuvenation, nutrition, exercise and creativity.

Give a creative and thoughtful gift of health this season!

Sauerkraut:

One of the most healthy and beautiful food gifts. Although sauerkraut is usually accompanied by a hot dog, it is surprisingly nutritious and fun to make! In addition to the nutritional benefits offered by cabbage like vitamin C, iron, and fiber, this fermented food also offers probiotic qualities as well as antioxidants.

Livestrong also claims anti-cancer benefits and diarrhea prevention. There's no doubt that sauerkraut is a super-food.

To make sauerkraut, all you need is cabbage, salt, a little physical strength, and a jar.

For more detailed instruction, visit Mother Earth News.

You’ll be surprised how tasty home-made sauerkraut is!

Bath salts:

A simple jar gift to give your friends a relaxing and rejuvenating bath. All you need is:

~ Salt- Epsom salt, sea salt, or a combination of both.

~ Essential oils- Lavender, peppermint, rose, and jasmine are a few good ones. Use just one or a combination

~ Jar- Ball or Mason jars work well

~ Baking Soda

~ Optional: Food coloring, dried flower petals

A more in-depth recipe with instructions for bath salts can be found at about.com.

Granola:

Granola is a tasty snack, cereal, or dessert topping. Because it’s so easy to make, you can customize it to different food allergies, tastes or preferences.

All you need to make granola is an oven, different kinds of oats, nuts or seeds, and a dressing. Fruit and other yummy treats are optional.

I love the gifts ideas you've shared here. We all wants to make happy to those people who we love but sometimes we stuck with low budget but there are penalty of shops out there those provide low price high quality gifts for almost all occasions. I've been a low budget problem last year and found good anniversary gifts for men at www.caspiangifts.com. they didn't only provide gifts on low price but also ship it in very low price.
