I hope you find something for someone you love below! An added bonus? Everything you’ll find in this gift guide is is under $150!
- Activity Tracker
Activity trackers absolutely exploded in popularity this year. They’re a great way to encourage extra movement throughout the day and motivate people to add in some extra steps to reach their personal goals.
- Cute, Cozy Pullover or Zip Up Jacket
I’m not sure what it is about pullovers and zip-ups that I love so much, but I swear you can never have too many of them! I wear them daily whether it be to/from Pure Barre, during the warm up of a class I’m teaching at the gym, on a walk with Sadie or lounging around the house. A great go-to gift!
Favorites: lululemon Dance Studio Jacket, Reebok Yoga Hoodie, Nike Hyperwarm Hoodie or Pullover (<— Love!!), Athleta Striped Strength Hoodie, Splits59 Open Back Pullover (<— Great for barre workouts!)
- Athletic Vest
I think this year is the year of the vests. I am seeing them everywhere (maybe it’s just because I’m no longer living in Florida?) and I adore them! I bought the Columbia Mighty Lite vest (in black) on sale earlier this fall and wear it constantly. It’s warm but also very lightweight making it perfect for in-between the seasons.
- No-Slip Headbands
Headbands save me during my workouts since I am the queen of little flyaway hairs and I also have a huge cowlick that doesn’t really allow me to pull my hair straight back without it looking totally goofy. I think no-slip headbands like BIC Bands or Sparkly Soul headbands would make a fantastic stocking stuffer for the fitness enthusiast in your life!
- Water Bottle
This is a gift that might be a little hard because most fitness-lovers probably already have a water bottle they adore, but here are a few I personally love: Nalgene Narrow Mouth Water Bottle, Tervis Tumbler, Contigo Auto-Seal Water Bottle, Starbucks Cold Cup Tumbler
- No-Show Athletic Underwear
Giving the gift of no-show underwear is a little strange, so maybe save this one for someone quite close to you! Though many people don’t mind working out in thongs, there are some great no-show athletic briefs that have popped up on the market that have received great reviews for those looking for a little more coverage (and a lot less wedgies!). I love Fabletics briefs but have also heard great things about Under Armour no-show underwear.
- Gift Certificate to a Local Studio/Gym to Take a New/Favorite Class
There are a bunch of awesome boutique classes out there that many fitness lovers would absolutely love to try, but they can some with a pretty hefty price tag. A gift certificate to Orange Theory, SoulCycle, FlyWheel, Pure Barre, etc. is a great way to give the gift of a fun experience.
This magnetic running pocket quickly became a favorite of mine after I started using it following the Runner’s World Half Marathon Festival earlier this year. If there is a runner in your life who complains about carrying stuff with them on a run or hates wearing armbands to carry their iPod or phone, definitely look into this pouch! The magnet is incredibly strong so it doesn’t bounce around when you run and sits comfortably against you body without moving and chafing. Love it!
- Fun Leggings
The days of plain black workout leggings are over! Fun and funky leggings are popping up everywhere and there are so many different prints and patterns available that will flatter every body type. (I’ve personally found that the heathered look is best for concealing lumps and bumps! These “black space dye” Moving Comfort Urban Gym Tights are my favorite and got great reviews!) Personal favorites: Lorna Jane Isometric Tight (<— I wore these to Pure Barre two weeks ago and got a ton of compliments!), lululemon Wunder Under Pant (Yes, I drank the Kool Aid and I absolutely love those pants — especially these mesh tights!), Fabletics Gaviota Legging (pictured above)
- More Fitness Gift Ideas
Nothing above catch your eye? Here are a few more fitness-themed gift ideas!
- Cold weather running gear (Hats, gloves, etc.)
- Heart rate monitor (<— I have the Polar FT4 and love it. Very user-friendly!)
- Ear buds (I recommend Yurbuds)
- Gym bag (I have the Gaiam Everything Fits gym bag and think it’s fabulous.)
- Workout DVDs
- Compression socks
- Cooling towel (I have the EnduraCool towel and bought it for my mom as well. It really works!)
- New yoga mat
- Athlights safety lights for runners/bikers/walkers who work out in the dark
- Gu Chomps (or their favorite fuel of choice)
- Gift certificate for a massage for sore muscles
