Need a last-minute gift for a runner or other athlete? One much-appreciated gift for people with overworked muscles is a container of soaking salts.

Research indicates a warm 20-minute soak can help to reduce soreness from a tough workout and to improve performance by helping muscles stay loose. Adding soaking salts such as Epsom salt increases the benefit, replenishing depleted elements to aid recovery.
