There is an art to gift giving. Someone who gives a truly great gift understands how a person genuinely finds joy and centers their giving on what that means for each individual on their list. The best gift givers go one step further. They select presents that they know the intended recipients will enjoy, but wouldn’t necessarily splurge on for themselves. From the yoga lover to the cross-fit aficionado, these are those extra special gifts for the fitness buff in your life. Get ready to be their holiday hero!
- Put their mat on a pedestal
If you have a Yogi in your life, seek out a gift as unique as they are! A personalized yoga mat holder is a perfect additional to their home studio. It protects their sacred mat and treats it with the reverence they feel it deserves.
- Keep the music playing
No one wants to get tangled up in wires during their workout. You can’t go wrong with sweat proof and water resistant earbuds for your gym star. Their motivation playlist will never skip a beat!
- Stylish hydration
Most of the fitness folks I know don’t leave home without their water bottle. Why not upgrade their water game by gifting one with a motivational saying to keep them pumped or something just as sleek and chic as they are! The new Swell Rose Gold bottle is a highly coveted option!
- No more embarrassing gym bags
If your man’s gym bag is looking pretty gross, upgrade his profile with a stylish (and clean) gym bag. You can find something fabulous in every price range and he will be glad he didn’t have to spend the money on it himself. Men’s Health put together a great list of options.
- Fitness delivered
Subscription boxes seem to be all the rage this year. Good news is, you are sure to find one for your loved one’s particular interest. From FabFitFun’s quarterly bundle to RunnerBox, you can select an option that will delight with cutting edge gadgets and gizmos a plenty.
- Massage, please!
Working on your fitness can wreak havoc on a body. It is hard work and sometimes you need to treat your muscles to some R&R. A gift certificate for a massage is a welcome gift any time of year.
- Office workout magic
It can be hard to sneak in exercise during the workday. A balance disc turns any chair into a core machine. By just sitting at their desk they will get in some added calorie burn and I have never met a fitness enthusiast that didn’t like that.
- Meals on wheels
Every heath-minded person I know is a planner. Their meals are no exception. Help them organize all that effort with a portable cooler that supplies all the compartments they could ever need. Every time they use it, which will be often, they will think of you.
- Expand their knowledge
When you love something, you also love learning more about it. Give the gift that keeps on giving by setting your fitness friend up with a magazine subscription. You can keep it general by going with Men’s or Women’s Health or select something from their niche. Either way, you can’t go wrong with this one! Just snoop around and make sure they aren’t already receiving whatever you choose.
- Class is on you!
If you know what your sweetie is into, why not gift them some classes? Ask anyone and they know the cost of classes can add up fast. Your fitness fiend will be glad to know that the next session is on you!
No matter what you select, showing that you paid attention to someone’s interests makes all the difference. Any of these items will help keep the fitness lover in your life motivated and grateful for your support.
