My Favorite Must-Have Fitness Gift Ideas

merry christmas

‘Tis the season of gift giving! With Christmas less than two weeks away you may be procrastinating panicking (like me), shopping for those last minute gifts. If you’re wondering what on earth you can get your friend or family member who is a health and fitness enthusiast, I’ve got you! I have compiled a list of some of my personal favorite fitness gift ideas that any wellness warrior will be sure to love.  


BLUETOOTH HEADPHONES: Totu wireless  $19.99 

I recently purchased these and love them. It’s nice not fighting with my tangled headphone cords anymore or worrying about the earbuds constantly falling out.

This stylish headband is a super-soft, stretchy fabric blend in a wide design for a secure fit that helps keep hair and sweat out of your eyes.

SMART WATCH: Basis Peak  $149.99

I am recommending this watch specifically, because I own one and love it.  They also have the most amazing customer service.  Here’s what it does: 24/7 sleep and fitness tracking, heart rate (no chest strap), tracks walks, runs and rides, notifications for texts, emails and calls. It also integrates with various health apps and you can change the watch straps for other colors.

**FitBit is also a very popular and well liked smartwatch to consider

SOCKS: Nike DRI-FIT no-show socks $8

I never cared too much about my socks, always opting for the cheapest pair, only to find a hole in them in a short time later. It’s especially annoying when your sock keeps slipping down into your shoe– talk about frustrating! But ever since I tried these Nike cushioned socks, I felt like I was walking on clouds because of their supportive compression fit. They are crazy comfortable and very durable.

fitness gift guide For runners, a great sock is  Thorlo running socks ($15), which are made of sweat-wicking material and have strategic cushioning to keep any run comfortable. A friend gifted me a pair of these and I am so happy with them 🙂

NICE GEAR: Having nice workout gear gives a little boost of confidence and motivation to get our exercise.  We all want to feel comfortable during that sweat session while still looking great. Here are a few of my favorite pieces:
