It’s almost time! Gift giving season will be here before ya know it. I know there are some people who love to get a jump on things and start shopping super early. I am not one of them. Procrastination FTW! But for all you go-getters, I put together this holiday gift guide for fitness lovers.
I’m into any and everything dealing with fitness and health so gifts within this realm are usually my favorite types of things to receive. Well, that and makeup, but let’s stay focused here. While these are things that I own and love myself, I think they are pretty universally appealing. So if you’re searching for a gift for someone in your life and you’re tired of handing over yet another impersonal gift card, this list will be your BFF. Plus with the mother of all shopping days approaching (hello Black Friday!) there will probably be some great online deals! Here are my top picks for that fitness and health lover in your life.
I am a huge Fitbit fan. I’ve used several different models but I currently have both the Blaze and the Alta HR. In terms of style, the Alta HR is a prettier and more girly tracker. It has a thinner and sleeker design. It pretty much looks like a bracelet especially if you get the right band.
Side note: I buy all my Fitbit bands from Amazon (like this one and the rose gold one in the pic below). They’re way cheaper and they last just as long. Speaking of bands, if your buddy already has a Fitbit, some cute bands would be an awesome gift as well.
Ok, back to the Alta. The Alta tracks steps, sleep and heart rate and you also get text and call notifications. Pretty awesome for a small package. My Blaze is what I typically use for my day to day workouts. I looks more like a sports watch and I love that I can stop and start workouts directly from the color touch screen without having to go into the app on my phone. In addition to text and call notifications, you can also set it up to control your music and receive other app notifications, like Instagram. The Blaze is a good option for your fitness minded friend who loves to track their workouts in real time.
I love my air fryer! I bought mine from Walmart during a Black Friday sale but they also carry them on Amazon. I have made everything from crispy brussel sprouts to kale chips to buffalo chicken strips in this thing and it always comes out super delicious. They’re easy to use and easy to clean. You get that crispy outside texture with little to no oil and without having to throw something in the oven for 30 minutes. This is a great option for your health conscious pal that enjoys experimenting in the kitchen.
These guys are always in my gym bag. I didn’t know what I was missing out on with my wired headphones. I use the Plantronics Backbeat Fit headphones. I can enjoy my workout at the gym without getting tangled up or accidentally pulling my headphones out of my ears. They charge super quick and they last through about 5-6 hour long workouts without needing to be charged again.
An Instant Pot is another great kitchen tool. Meat comes out juicy and tender and is ready super quick. You can even stick it in frozen which saves a ton of time. It’s a great multi-purpose gadget to have on hand and is especially helpful for people who love to meal prep! While you’re at it you can check out some great Instant Pot recipes over at my buddy Bailey’s blog!
I have used both Hydroflask and S’well Bottle and love them both. My Hydroflask is larger and has different options for the cap which allows me to either unscrew and sip from the bottle itself, or have a cap with a straw that flips up (my preference). Hydroflask comes in so many sizes and colors so they’re great for guys and girls alike. The design is simple and sporty with a basic cylindrical shape.
S’well bottles (shown below) are usually a screw top and they’re shape is more similar to a wine bottle. They make super cute designs to add a little style to your hydration game. I never leave home without my water bottle and even though I have 2, I’m always tempted to buy more with all the cute patterns. I mean a girl needs options right?!
Paleo By Maileo Subscription Box
What’s not to love about getting some tasty healthy snacks in the mail?! Paleo By Maileo is an online shop that specializes in healthy snacks and products based off of the principles of the paleo diet. One of the cool services they offer is a monthly subscription box. For $39 you can have a box delivered to your health conscious buddy like the one shown below.
You can also choose a three and six month subscription option if you want a gift that will keep on giving after the holiday season has passed. I have tried one of their custom boxes and it’s a great way to be introduced to some new brands and items and find a few new favorites!
New Workout Clothes
I have more workout clothes than regular clothes and I still always want more so you really can’t go wrong getting your fitness loving friend some new gear. I love the sports bras from Senita, especially the Sarah Sports Bra. It’s reasonably priced at $25, super freaking cute and has a pocket in the back to throw your phone in. Sounds weird but I swear it works. Senita also has some awesome high waisted leggings with pockets that won’t break the bank. Some of my other faves are linked down below!
New workout gear is always fun! Prior to having a gym bag like a normal person, I was stuffing everything into a random tote that didn’t necessarily function the way I wanted it to. Once I got a gym bag with all the bells and whistles, my workout life got a lot easier. I love my bag from Vooray because the pattern is super cute and the bag is so functional. It has a water bottle holder, a shoe compartment and all the pockets and zippers you could ever want to store all your essentials.
If you have a friend who loves to go out on jogs, a running belt is a great option. It’s small enough to not get in the way but it still holds a phone, a key and other little essentials like chapstick or tissues. I use it both for my runs as well as my regular gym workouts just because I don’t like the arm bands to hold my phone when I’m working out. So even if they’re less of a runner and more of a gym rat, this will come in handy.
This is a great non-expensive kitchen gadget. The Spiralizer turns all your veggies into noodles. You can run some sweet potato, zucchini or yellow squash through this thing and whip up some carb-less “pasta” with your favorite sauce.
I love these guys cause they’re super cheap and small enough to toss into any travel bag. There are different levels of resistance and you can get a great on the go workout. If you’re in the giving mood you can even get a little basket going with this, a water bottle and a cute workout tank.
Blender Bottles are awesome for post workout protein shakes on the go. I bring mine with me when I travel or when I’m doing a workout somewhere where I won’t be able to get to my blender afterward. You can also stick a couple single serving packets of their favorite protein powder inside as a bonus.
You Set The $$
I love me some Corepower so if someone put a gift card under my tree stacked with a few classes, it would be a dream come true. Along with this theme you can do a yoga mat and towel and be the ultimate giver of zen. Namaste.
Grocery Store Gift Card
So if you’re in a hurry and you must do the gift card thing, a grocery gift card is a great option. I may be a freak but I love grocery shopping. I usually shop at Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods. This can get a little pricey especially when you are trying to eat healthy, organic, grass fed everything. So this is another great, easy option for your health conscious friends.
Happy Shopping Friends!
