Gift Guide for Fitness Lovers
Budget Finds Under $50
- Ear Buds
Maybe it’s just me, but I seem to misplace my ear buds at the same rate I misplace bobby pins! A new pair of ear buds is an affordable gift many fitness enthusiasts will likely appreciate. If they already have a pair, an extra set of ear buds might still be desired so they can leave a pair in their car or gym bag just in case they forget their usual pair of ear buds at home on their way to work out.
I discovered this stuff around the same time that I began using Rose Hip Seed Oil and it’s fantastic. A simple spritz of this stuff on my face after a workout or right when I get out of the shower leaves me feeling amazingly refreshed. I think this would be a lovely stocking stuffer!
- Dry Shampoo
Okay, this might be a weird gift to give someone, but if you and your friends talk about dry shampoo like it’s the best thing in the world like me and my friends do, it might be appreciated! Spring for a quality brand because we all know dry shampoos aren’t created equally!
- Athletic Socks
A cozy pair of quality athletic socks are an affordable gift I always appreciate!
This is a great gift for the runner in your life who wants to bring some things along with them on their run but doesn’t want to have to carry anything. I love my Roo Sport Running Pocket and think it does a great job of holding everything from my iPhone and house key to fuel on long runs!
Fitness Splurges $50+
- Pretty Cosmetic Bag
Is it just me or do you guys love a beautiful cosmetic bag, too? A nice cosmetic bag is something I would never buy for myself, but if someone gave it to me as a gift, I would absolutely love it! Fitness friends might enjoy this gift if they shower at the gym and have to pack their makeup and toiletries to bring with them every day.
- Massage or Pedicure
I’m fairly certain most people who work out regularly (and most people in general) would love a massage as a holiday gift this year! Whenever I receive a massage as a gift, I am always way too excited to have someone massage my sore muscles, especially since I am very unlikely to purchase a massage for myself. If there’s a runner in your life, they may also love a pedicure, especially after a big race when their feed likely need some TLC!
- New Leggings or Crops
I am kind of addicted to workout leggings, as are most of the fitness lovers I know in my life! With so many cute options featuring fun patterns, flattering fits and functional style, it’s easy to find a quality pair to gift to a fitness enthusiast in your life!
- Pullover or Hoodie
With the colder months upon us, I am finding myself living in hoodies and pullovers. They’re so darn comfy and I think many fitness enthusiasts would agree that you can never have too many cozy hoodies, pullovers or zip ups! They’re great for both outdoor workouts and comfortable loungewear.
Favorites: Athleta Hoodie (<—Updated version of the Athleta hoodie jacket I have and love), Reebok Yoga Burnout Hoodie (<—Updated version of my favorite yoga hoodie), Zella Half Zip, Old Navy Funnel Neck Fleece, GapFit Printed Pullover
