Coconut gift suggestions for the whole family
Why should you get coconut gifts? The answer is because buying coconut products is good for the environment and good for people. The coconut palm is classified as a renewable resource because it takes only 7 years to reach maturity. It is a plant that can flourish without fertilizers and pesticides. This means that most coconut products are organic. Thus from an environmental point of view coconut items make great Christmas presents. It is not only nature that benefits from us using coconuts, as there are several health and beauty benefits to be had from such things as coconut oil, coconut milk, coconut flour and coconut water. This post will explore these benefits and suggest a coconut gift for Christmas for each member of the family.
Coconut Gift for Dad
If dad doesn’t work out then perhaps he should. It will help him shed those excess pounds that he is bound to gain from all that yummy Christmas food. Working out will also help dad to relieve the stress from work and being a dad. After working out down the gym or going for a run it is important to rehydrate. Sports drinks are often high in sugar and so are not ideal. The best natural isotonic drink available is coconut water. It contains high amounts of such important electrolytes as magnesium and potassium. It is also low in sugar and 99% fat free. Thus, the best coconut gift for a sporty dad or a would be sporty dad is coconut water.
And when dad is in his cups, coconut water makes a great mixer and cocktail ingredient that will lessen the hangover the following morning.
Coconut Gift for Mum
Coconut oil is a great moisturizer. It soaks deep into the tissues of the skin and replaces lost oils. As the body produces less sebum oil from the sebaceous glands it is necessary to supplement the body’s natural oil production. Coconut oil is perfect for this as it also contains antioxidants that help to stop the formation of free radicals that cause the signs of aging.
Coconut oil is also found in several shampoos. It adds shine and luster to the skin. Coconut oil is one of the main beauty products for women in such places as India, Sri Lanka and Thailand. Mum will love you if you get her a nice coconut beauty product for Christmas.

Coconut Gift for the Dog
Dogs not only enjoy the taste of coconut oil but it is also really good for them. The high concentration of medium chain fatty acids in the oil help give the dog energy and burn off excess fat. The lauric acid in coconut oil also helps to detox the dog’s intestines and promote general good health that can be seen in the extra shine of the dog’s coat.
You can now buy coconut oil and coco chips specially designed for dogs. The family dog might not fully understand the significance of Christmas but he or she will fully appreciate any coconut gift treats.
Coconut Gift for kids
Although many kids love the rich taste of coconut milk in smoothies and shakes perhaps the most sure fire coconut gift for kids that will bring a smile to their face is limited edition coconut M&Ms. Chocolate and candy is always a winner when it comes to children. The fact that these M&Ms are limited edition also adds to their appeal as not all kids will have tried them. From an adults point of view giving kids a taste for coconuts at an early age might reap major health benefits in the future if they can be persuaded to have other healthy coconut foods when they grow up.
So there you have it: a coconut gift for each member of the family. Wait I hear you say; what about grandma and granddad? Well why not give grandma a giggle and get her a cheap coconut bikini bra? She might not use it but she will remember the fun she had receiving it. And for granddad why not get him some coconut rum cake? He can share it with grandma. Have a merry coconut Christmas!
