The holidays are quickly approaching! If you’re anything like us, that means you probably have a million things on your to-do list. Bake cookies, clean the house, mail holiday cards… And somewhere in there you have to decide upon final gift ideas for your friends and family.
Between Secret Santa exchanges, significant others and family members, you’re bound to have at least a couple fitness junkies in your life. Whether you’re shopping for a runner, weightlifter, yogi or fitness beginner, this list has something for everyone. We’ve even organized it from least to most expensive. You’re welcome.
- A quick and efficient workout
Bethenny’s SkinnyGirl Workout DVD ($8.30) – For the friend with an insane schedule that doesn’t allow for gym time, buy this workout DVD. Personality and fitness geek Bethenny Frankel’s DVD has 15 and 20-minute routines that are easy to squeeze in – and actually fun to do!
- Roll it out
Gaiam Restore Dual Zone Back Roller ($15) – This compact body massager reduces muscle soreness and increases circulation. Roll it between the ground and your back and along your spine to massage soreness out of your back muscles. Perfect for your friend who loves to hit the gym.
- Add some protein
BlenderBottle ($10) – This bottle is perfect for your friends who love to make homemade smoothies and protein shakes. It combines ingredients together with its BlenderBall wire whisk to make smooth shakes every time.
- Hydrate and repeat
HydraPak Collapsible Water Bottle ($23) – Durable, flexible and leak-proof this water bottle is designed to go wherever you go. It twists and compacts into a palm-sized shape when empty. Perfect for stashing in an overflowing bag.
- Keep your hands warm
Gordini Stash Lite Stretch Gloves ($30) – Everyone has a friend that loves running so much she won’t give up even when there’s a layer of snow outside. While these gloves are made from a ripstop nylon, they’re still extremely stretchy, so your hands will be able to move easily. The insulation helps keep hands toasty, while the wicking fabric sucks up sweat.
- For on-the-go gym-goers
Lululemon Don’t Sweat It Kit ($48) – We’re in love with this durable (and pretty) beauty organizer. Its many pockets are ideal for storing makeup and shower essentials for your friend who hits the gym every morning before work. If you want to make this gift extra special, try stuffing it with mini shampoo, hair ties and more!
- One of our bras, of course!
SheFit Ultimate Sports Bra ($58.99) – This wouldn’t be a complete gift guide without including our very own, one-of-a-kind sports bra. At SheFit, we believe bras shouldn’t discriminate, that’s why our sports bra accommodates women of every size—petite to plus, young to old, pro to weekend warrior. We were recently honored to be named one of Entrepreneur’s 360 Top Companies.
- The only mat you’ll ever need
Gaiam Athletic DuraMat ($60) – If your friends are sick of replacing a worn-out yoga mat each year, look no further. The Gaiam Athletic DuraMat has a lifetime guarantee. Plus, it’s reversible!
- Something for Chipper
Ruffwear Overcoat ($65) – Dog lovers will appreciate this gift for their favorite workout buddy. The Ruffwear K-9 Overcoat is water resistant to keep pups dry. And the cozy fleece interior keeps them warm, too!
- Leggings for every occasion
Lululemon Speed Tight V Leggings ($108) – When it comes to workout leggings or yoga pants, Lululemon is one of the best options. This particular pair is designed for speed runners – and comes in four colors!
- Track your activity
Fitbit Alta ($129) – The Fitbit Alta will count steps, track calories and decode one’s sleep cycle. It does everything! Okay, maybe it won’t do the dishes or walk the dog. But for someone who makes staying healthy their number one priority, this gift rules.
We hope this holiday gift guide is helpful as you shop for all the fitness junkies in your life. And, maybe, pick something off the list for yourself, too!
