Healthy Holidays Giveaway Week

I’ll be back in a bit for your regularly scheduled blogging but right now it’s time to announce the kickoff of Healthy Holidays Giveaway Week!

Several weeks ago, I reached out to some of my favorite companies with a fun and festive idea.

An entire week of fitness-related holiday giveaways!

Healthy Holidays Giveaway Week

The giveaways start today and will last through Sunday. Every day I will be featuring a different holiday giveaway on the blog. Stay tuned for giveaways that include new gym shoes, fitness apparel, race entries and more!

Big thanks to all of the companies who agreed to give away some of my all-time favorite products for this week of fitness-inspired fun.

Let’s get things started with an awesome giveaway from BIC Bands!

BIC Bands Giveaway

To say that I am in love with BIC Bands would be an understatement. I wear BIC Bands every single day of the week. They’re the best workout headbands I’ve ever tried because they actually stay in place through long runs, circuit workouts… even burpees! Woop!

BIC Bands

My favorite BIC Bands are the sparkly ones, but I am also a sucker for the fun patterns and holiday prints. So cute!

BIC Bands 007

Another thing I love? The story behind the headbands.

They began as a fundraiser to help Sandy raise money for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society through Team in Training as she trained for her first half marathon. Because they were such a hit, Sandy decided to keep selling the bands, and keep giving back to those in need! Each month, a portion of the sales of BIC Bands is donated to a different charity.

B.I.C. Bands = Because I Can Bands

We raise funds because we can…for those who can’t so that one day they will.”

One PBF reader will win a $25 gift certificate to use on the BICBands website so they can pick out the BIC Bands they love the most! 

To enter this giveaway, simply comment below telling me which BIC Band you’d select if you won.

I will randomly select a winner tomorrow afternoon.

    Love love love the thick gobstopper! So cute! I’m always on a mission to find the best headbands for workouts so I’d love to try these.

  2. Kelsie says

    I would love to find a band that actually fits and is somewhat stylish and not just a plain black color. The ones I have now never stay put and I am constantly having to readjust them during my workouts…and definitely lose some momentum. I have a pretty big head 🙂 haha

  3. says

    Ohh I would definitely pick the sparkles! My workout outfits go one of two ways: loud and proud colors or completely black. I feel like the sparkles would match perfectly with either! 🙂

  4. Zoe says

    I would love one of the skinny ones! maybe in silver or black. I start a big internship next semester and I would love to have something to wear to give me a bit of a mental boost. Not to mention working out in it!

  5. Angela I says

    I LOVE the big bling bands in sparkly gunmetal and silver. So cute! I have some sparkly-banded yoga pants that would look great with them. Plus, I really like the story behind BIC bands because it’s not for personal gain.

  6. Amber says

    I’ve been searching for a band that will stay in place through my runs! No such luck yet 🙁 I would love to have the glittery bands!!!

  7. says

    I’m going to hop on the bandwagon and say sparkles all the way! Either Big Bling Fuschia or Purple. My workout clothes are generally pretty simple blacks and greys, so I would love to add a small pop of color!

  8. Anne @strawberryjampackedlife says

    I love the sparkly ones, too!! I lost my pink glitter one at the Princess Half, so I’d love to replace it.

  9. Autumn Rae says

    I just realized over the weekend that I don’t have any fun holiday headbands, so I’d more than likely pick up a few of those!

  10. Christina says

    I actually got a few sparkle ones for Christmas last year after seeing them on pbfingers! I think I would want to add one of the polka dot ones to my collection!

      (Quote)

  11. Bridget Horner says

    I would definitely use the glittery ones! A headband that stays in place AND is super cute!? I would love to try one of these!

  12. Ashley says

    Reindeer dash skinny one please!!! I love Christmas, and with the stress of med school and exam time, I can use any extra motivation to go to the gym 🙂

      (Quote)

  13. Casey Lichenstein says

    My fav is definitely the pink sparkly one! I have very long hair and a hair band is a must for me when working out. I’d love to try the BIC bands!

      (Quote)

  14. Teri C says

    I would lovee the snowflake one! It’s perfect for running now considering its Christmas time, and even after Christmas, I’ll love it so much I’ll just keep wearing it!

  15. Amber says

    I’ve been searching for a band that will stay in place through my runs! No suck luck yet 🙁 I’d definitely chose the glittery one! So cute and would add a feminine touch while in the gym!

      (Quote)

  16. Jenn says

    I’d love to win a sparkly BIC band. My headbands are always slipping off my head during workouts, and since I have curly hair, that leaves me with frizzies all around my face!

      (Quote)

  17. Sheila says

    I absolutely love the concept behind BIC bands! I would go for a glitter band for sure! Who doesn’t want to sport a little bling while getting down and dirty with a workout! 🙂

      (Quote)

  18. Meghan says

    I love BIC bands!! They’re the only headbands I will wear during my work outs. I would defnintely want to try the sparkly ones, super cute!!

      (Quote)

  19. says

    I love the holiday one – why not spice things up while you’re working out! I love to have something different on – make people want to look at me working hard! 🙂

      (Quote)

  20. Alexandra says

    The sparkly bands are really cute! I’m so skeptical that they’ll stay on my head though. Nothing ever does and I’ve had similarly styled bands before… halo headbands are awesome for my needs but are sort of ugly. I might have to try these because if they work, they’ll be my new workout staple!

      (Quote)

  21. Alyssa says

    It’s so funny to read everyone’s comments….SPARKLE SPARKLE SPARKLE! I love the sparkle teal skinny Bic band! I also really like the chevron print!

      (Quote)

  22. Lee Ann says

    I would pick the sparkly ones for my little cousins! They just moved to Ohio and are having a hard time; they are in 5th and 6th grade and LOVE anything that sparkles!! It would be so cute with their uniforms.

      (Quote)

  23. Cate says

    I’m a sucker for the sparkly BIC bands. I have roughly 15 bands (can we say addict) because I wear whatever matches my mood. They really are the best and stay in place during vigorous activity!

  24. sarah says

    im a total glitter-holic! especially around christmas!!!! i would use it all the time i hate working out and getting my hair in my face or having uncomfortable headbands in !

      (Quote)

  25. Jackie Hanna says

    I would definitely pick a sparkly one! Who wouldn’t want to add a little sparkle to their workout routine!?? Such a fun way to stay motivated AND look good while working out 🙂

      (Quote)

  26. Jen Eaton says

    So cute & I have never been able to find bands that actually stay put. I sweat like a crazy person so I would love bands that don’t move. Love the Zebra print & any kind of sparkle puts a twinkle in my eye:)

      (Quote)

  27. Hanna says

    I would love to have the Skinny Sparkle in Aqua! All other headbands that I work out in never really stay in place… so these sound amazing! 🙂

      (Quote)

  28. Kelly says

    I would stock up on all the sparkly ones! I would love to try them since I also struggle to find ones that stay in place — thanks for doing the giveaways!!

      (Quote)

  29. Lindsay Szwed says

    I’d place to go animal print and funky!! Nothing says FUN like totally random headbands while you work out! I’d love to try these!

      (Quote)

  30. Brooke says

    I agree with you, the sparkly ones are so fun! I would definitely go for one of those! I get pretty sweaty when I’m at the gym, but I still want to look at least A LITTLE cute! 🙂

      (Quote)

  31. Cassie says

    I know this answer won’t be very unique, but definitely the sparkly headbands! They would add a nice touch of sparkle to a very basic workout outfit!

  32. Danielle D. says

    I love the glittery blue one you’re wearing in your photo – so I’d have to snag one of those. What better way to control the whispies!?

      (Quote)

  33. Lyndsay says

    Love the thick “Fancy Pants!” Super cute pattern and that’s also my nickname for my boyfriend! 🙂 Great story behind the brand!

      (Quote)

  34. Jennifer says

    I would choose the skinny dotty in purple! My daughter has really thin hair so we have a hard time keeping it in a ponytail so this would be perfect for her. She would love the mini sparkle ones. 🙂

      (Quote)

  35. says

    My best friend would LOVE these because she always complains about how headbands fall out of her when she runs (apparently I have a weird shaped head since I don’t seem to have this problem). Anyway, it would be awesome to give her one as part of her Christmas gift…her favorite color is teal so sparkly teal it is!!

      (Quote)

  36. Melissa says

    Awesome giveaway! I only have one B.I.C. band and pretty much wear it everyday, it’s gross at this point. I would get the skinny 26.2 one since I’m training for my first marathon and use it as motivation. Thanks!

      (Quote)

  37. Lauren T says

    Thanks for the giveaway! BicBands is such an awesome organization!

    I’ve been coveting the sparkle ones, but especially the thin aqua one!

  38. Michelle Deutsch says

    Hi My name is Michelle and I just moved to Atlanta after college and became a certified spin instructor. I always wear headbands to work out and I would love to win this giveaway! If I won I would choose the pink sparkly one because I always like to wear something that stands out when I teach and pink is my favorite color. Have a great day!

      (Quote)

  39. Megan says

    I love these bands and wear my sparkly black skinny band almost every day!! I would totally choose the polka dot skinny bands…in green and red…and black…and purple, well…you see where I’m going. 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway!!

      (Quote)

  40. Gabrielle says

    I’m obsessed with head bands and I’m always on the search for the perfect one! I’ve heard so much about the BIC bands I would LOVE to have one 🙂 I’d pick the skinny sparkle bands! They are so cute!

      (Quote)

  41. Kelly says

    i love these bands! i have one now and i wear it everyday so it would be awesome to have more than one so i can change it up. if i wont i would definitely choose the minnie sparkle purple & skinny sparkle apple green!

    can’t wait for more giveaways, thanks!!!

  42. Brittany Perez says

    The hot pink sparkly one!! I just had a baby so getting motivation has been tough. It matches my favorite running top so might help get me motivated!!!

      (Quote)

  43. Kelli Nichols says

    I would pick the minnie sparkle gunmetal for sure & probably the fuchsia hot pink. I wear a lot of black when working out and both colors would go with everything I have!

      (Quote)

  44. Marni G says

    Sparkles are always fun, but I also like the thick fancy pants and thin runners take your mark. I’ve been meaning to try bic bands because I’ve heard great things about them.

      (Quote)

  45. Kelly says

    I would pick the big bling sparkle fuchsia hot pink headband! They are the only headbands that keep the microphone on my head when I am teaching group fitness classes!

      (Quote)

  46. Molly says

    I love all of the sparkly BIC Bands! The Skinny Sparkle Orchard Pink is my favorite. I’m in need of a great headband that can hold my hair in place no matter what!

      (Quote)

  47. Robyn says

    A hard decision for sure because they’re all fantastic, but I’d probably be super practical to say the reflective Bic Band would come in handy…

      (Quote)

  48. Kate M says

    I’m a sucker for all things polka dot, so I’d choose the skinny dotted green. However, the aqua skinny sparkle one is really tempting…

      (Quote)

  49. Mikaela says

    Like everyone else, I’m a huge fan of anything sparkly! I would go for the skinny sparkle peacock. I’ve been trying to find a band that doesn’t slide off my head for years, maybe this will do the trick!

      (Quote)

  50. Brandi says

    I love BIC BANDS!!! I already have 2 after trying several other brands and they are the ONLY ones that do not slip. But I NEED more colors 🙂
    I would definetely get the Minnie Sparkle in Gold and Gunmetal.

      (Quote)

  51. Jessica says

    I’ve been looking for a headband that stays in place forever! I love the holiday themed ones, I would pick dancing gingerbread friends!

      (Quote)

  52. Kelly says

    I would choose the Thin Split Decision band. Love the history and hope to try them out soon! I definitely need a fun one to sport during the Zooma Run in January!

      (Quote)

  53. Maria says

    When I exercise I allow myself to wear things, color and patterns that usually wouldn’t make it on my work/daily outfit. So for the headbands I would get a thick one in odd patterns

      (Quote)

  54. Alison says

    I love BIC Bands! I have about 10 of them but my goal is to get all the sparkle colors. Peacock is next on my list!
    Their customer service is fantastic as well. Great company all around!

      (Quote)

  55. Emily from IOWA says

    What a cool way to raise money! I would go for the Holiday Chevron or the Pink Argyle! I’m a sucker for those two patterns

      (Quote)

  56. Linda says

    I’ve always been jealous of girls who can wear headbands during their workouts. Maybe a sparkly bic band will finally be the headband that stays on my head.

      (Quote)

  57. Laura says

    I’m always looking for a no slip hairband while exercising. Would love to win and try these out!! If they’re as good as you say they are, I’d become a lifelong customer for sure! I like th skinny sparkly pink one!

      (Quote)

  58. Kathleen says

    Headbands never stay on my head. I’d love to try. LOVE the skinny brown green camo!!!! It’s so hard to find camo and it’s my FAV!!!

      (Quote)

  59. says

    I’ve never been able to keep a headband on whilst working out. I hope the BIC band really done stay put! I love the sparkly purple ones and the gingerbread holiday band is super cute!

      (Quote)

  60. Tiffany Bush says

    I would love to try these bands! I have such an issue with finding ones that fit just right and still stay on through a workout. I have about 10 right now that I wish I never bought! Also, what a fun idea to do giveaways this whole week! I am looking forward to seeing some of your other favorite items as well!

  61. Jyssica says

    I would pick the zebra for sure. Nothing better than a little animal print to motivate me during a workout. Truly, I love them all!

      (Quote)

  62. Dana says

    The gunmetal sparkly one would be awesome, I love anything that sparkles haha I am in the process of fundraising for Multiple Sclerosis and part of that is running races as people sponsor me, so being able to wear bic bands while running these races would A. keep hair out of my eyes and B. will feel good knowing I am wearing something that has helped many causes, I’d love to even promote bic bands to my many running friends after I test these out!

  63. Mari Watson says

    My best friend was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2010 and because of an amazing person he was able to find a match in the national bone marrow registry and is now in remission. I love what the BIC bands stand for and like you said it is not every day you find a headband that actually works! I am also an officer in the navy and work out hear can sometimes be limited to very plain attire especially when deployed on the ship. I would pick the sparkle ones to have that feminine flare and still functional and be able to support an amazing cause.

      (Quote)

  64. Kristen says

    So happy to hear the some of the sales from these go to a good cause. I bought two already and wear them constantly. I would love another, maybe a sparkly one!

      (Quote)

  65. Katie says

    Gahh, I love all the BIC Bands! I have sparkly ones in dark pink, light pink, teal, black, silver, and brown. I think I should expand my horizons and choose a non-sparkly. I love the thin holiday chevron one!

      (Quote)

  66. Meredith says

    I have such a hard time finding headbands that don’t fall off my head while exercising! I’ve heard of BIC bands, but I’ve never actually ordered myself one. I would love a skinny sparkle band!

      (Quote)

  67. Katelyn says

    I would LOVE to try a bicband. I’ve heard such good things about them. Anyone who knows me knows I would pick the sparkly pink one. (My best gift ever was my PINK garmin…haha)

      (Quote)

  68. Allison says

    I would absolutely love a headband that stays in place, no matter the color. I feel like my giant head and thick hair make for a bad combination. 🙂

      (Quote)

  69. Jennifer says

    The pink sparkly one! Tis the season. Great idea for a give-a-way. I could use a little fitness motivation after all the yummy holiday treats.

      (Quote)

  70. says

    The skinny sparkly turquoise one!

    Okay, so I’ve never tried a BIC band, but now I’m convinced that even if I don’t win the giveaway, I need one. My headbands never stay in place, and I usually chock it up to having an irregularly-shaped melon. Maybe, there’s hope for me yet! 🙂

      (Quote)

  71. Katie says

    Def Minnie Sparkle Silver…I want to look as cute as possible while my butt is being kicked in barre method classes! These looks awesome, I am always looking for a headband that stays in place too.

      (Quote)

  72. Kayla Davenport-Burgett says

    I would definitely choose a sparkly one. A little glitter makes a girl feel pretty (even if she is sweating her face off)!

      (Quote)

  73. Dana says

    Definitely a skinny sparkly one – probably the pink one. Just because you are working out doesn’t mean you can’t be girly. 🙂

      (Quote)

  74. monica says

    I’ve never bought headbands for working out because i assumed there weren’t any that worked. I just use bandannas alot. So thanks for the chance to win some of these. I love the sparkly ones and the flower one!!

      (Quote)

  75. Katherine says

    I would have to go with the holiday. I can’t stand wearing earrings while working out (so sad for all of my holiday earrings )so I can still be festive with fun headbands!!!

      (Quote)

  76. says

    Ooooo exciting!! I’ve been looking for a band to actually keep my hair in place and not fall off the back of my head!
    I would definitely choose the skinny ‘let it snow’ band. For those days when simply wearing Christmas clothes just isn’t enough 🙂

      (Quote)

  77. Megan S. says

    I absolutely love the “poppin along” print–I’d probably get the thick one. But they’re all cute…I’d probably have a lot of trouble deciding!!

      (Quote)

  78. Abby says

    I love the sparkle ones! I would love to try these-I can never seem to keep headbands in place during workouts (I’m convinced I have an odd shaped head)!

      (Quote)

  79. Bridget says

    Love the message of “Because I Can” — one of my fave exercise mantras “Run while you still can!” (There are so many who wish they could move freely but can’t!)
    I’d want the black sparkly one- black to go with everything but a little glitter to let the glam girlie side out 🙂

  80. Amy says

    I’d go crazy for the zebra BicBand! I was just in a regional CrossFit competition and my hair was in my face all day…especially during the burpees. Would love nothing more than to get some
    Of these!

      (Quote)

  81. Amy Johnson says

    I would really like the sparkly turquoise one, but honestly haven’t ever tried this brand. I kind of gave up on headbands other than the kind that keep my ears warm in the winter. They always slide around on me.

      (Quote)

  82. Crystal Froehlich says

    I love all things pink and all things sparkly! That headband would be #1 on my list but I also need the 13.1 Half Marathon band to keep me motivated during my first 1/2 training!

      (Quote)

  83. Leslie says

    Bic bands are awesome and now knowing the meaning behind the brand makes me love them even more. I would definitely love the Skinny Sparkle Emerald Green!

      (Quote)

  84. rachel says

    Because I have (what I consider to be) an odd shaped head, I’ve been through the ringer with headbands, and BIC’s are the only ones that stay put! I currently only have one purple sparkly one but would love some plain colors and of course, more sparkles!

      (Quote)

  85. says

    Sparkles for sure!! (I know I’ll never win this, ha your blog is really popular… 445 comments already?!) I also like thicker bands because they hold my hair back so much better than the skinny ones!

      (Quote)

  86. Andrea says

    Pink sparkles . I have twins girls & their colors are pink & purple! I run to be a good example for them. I have a purple band! Just need a pink one:)

  87. nicole schulien says

    I’d pick a sparkly one, they are so cute! I’ve never tried a fitness headband but with long hair and pony tails that come out alot I’m sure it would helpful during tough workouts!

  88. Sarah says

    I’ve wanted one of these for awhile after hearing everyone raving about them. I think the sparkle ones are my favorite! Would love to win one!

    Red or green sparkle would be perfect for the holiday season and might motivate me to start running outside again in this cold New England weather.

  90. Jackie says

    I LOVE the sparkles! I would definitely order one of those and maybe a plain solid one that would go with everything! Love the story behind the band!
