Staying hydrated is essential, especially for your active friends. How much water you drink daily depends on the person, but setting a goal is a logical step to keeping healthy and happy. Using a smart water bottle, like Hidrate’s Spark, connects with your smartphone or fitness tracking device and keeps tabs on your progress.

2. Sleep Tight with a New Night Light

Frankly, everyone needs better sleep, so gift this soothingly automated light to the chronically tired people in your life. As bedtime approaches, the warm light dims to help with relaxation. In the morning, the light wakes you up. You control the brightness with gestures (like wiggling it!), and the whole thing is wireless.

Don’t try to guess what the yogis in your life prioritize, mat-wise — choosing a yoga mat isn’t a trivial experience. But a travel mat is likely to go over like a nice, long savasana. The YOGO Travel Yoga Mat is both a mat and a carrier (thanks to the attached straps), and it folds up tightly to stash in an overnight bag.
