Gifts that start with I for adults

When it comes to gift-giving, practicality is always a great consideration. Here are some practical gifts that start with the letter I that you can consider for your loved ones.

Ice bath

Let me explain this. Products like “The Cold Pod” are marketed as ice baths for athletes. You must understand that ice baths are considered a healthy practice. Although most of the models in the promo pictures are male, women participate too.

When buying an ice tub, make sure you buy one that fits you. Some are even noted for “extra long” people. For convenience, many of the products are inflatable, but you can locate an actual ice bath barrel. Some people even refer to this as an “ice plunge tub.”

Watch a couple that gives an overview of cold therapy health benefits and tips for beginners.

Ice cube molds

The ice theme continues with ice cube molds. You might not feel you have a need for specialty ice cube trays, but hold in!

There are trays that are clever ice cube silicon trays that can instantly pop out cubes in a receiving container, such as over food that needs to be chilled.

For fancy events, you can ever splurge for a custom ice stamps with your logo on. This is not an ice mold, but works by stamping the logo into a pre-made ice cube.

Or consider the gorgeous rose ice molds for a wedding event, or a beautiful ice mold wine bottle chiller to chill a bottle of wine or champagne. You can customize and add artificial flowers to the mold for special effects.
