When I was putting together this list of gifts for healthy people, I thought back to the best gift I ever gave my husband: an E-ZPass transponder.
I know that it doesn’t sound like an exciting gift, except that it was for him.
At the time, we were newly dating and living about 35 miles from each other. And 35 miles in Washington, D.C., traffic can take a frustratingly long time.
Ryan took the toll road out to my place, which meant having to stop and pay the tolls each and every trip. Giving him the E-ZPass made his life easier and saved him precious time.
So when I put together this list of gifts for healthy people, I wasn’t going after “it’s the thought that counts.”
I wanted to list items that your friends and family will actually use. These are items that will help them stay healthy and provide some much-needed peace and tranquility; things you can’t really put a price tag on.
