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.”

IFAK pouch

IFAK stands for “Individual First Aid Kit.” IFAK pouches are sturdy for all emergency situations. Buy a IFAK alone, or buy one pre-packed. IFAK packs come in different sizes, ranging from a fanny pack to a backpack.

Ikigai Book

Say what? If your loved one is seeking their life purpose, consider gifting them the Ikigai book. This Japanese concept translates to “life motivation,” and the book explores the idea of finding one’s purpose in life.

The book features interviews with elderly Japanese people who have found their Ikigai and provides insights on how to find your own. This gift is perfect for anyone who is searching for meaning and purpose in their life.

Like most Japanese gifts to the world, I’m sure the ikigai concept has been around for a long time. It does seem quite similar to today’s popular personality tests that often try to offer guidance to the user.
