Fitness & Health Holiday Gift Guide
Updated: Aug 3, 2022
For me, it's a pretty rare occurrence when I know exactly what to gift someone for their birthday or the holidays.
Something about gift-giving just makes me feel so pressured and then I have no idea what to do. While I haven't fully overcome my gifting paralysis (and probably never will), the best trick I've found for staying on top of your gift game is to note down gift ideas throughout the year as you come across them.
Then when it's crunch time you won't be freaking out googling "what should I gift my ____" the day before you need a gift.
If you've yet to start doing this helpful gift trick, have no fear, I started doing it for you. I've been collecting ideas for what to gift the fitness and wellness lover in your life and I've conveniently placed them all into this blog post.
What To Get A Fitness Enthusiast Or Wellness Lover
Perhaps you just need some more creative gift ideas, or you can't figure out what to get the person who has everything.
Either way, I really don't think that you can go wrong with a health-conscious gift!
Heading into the new year often means people are looking to improve their health and wellness. So now is a great time to get them something that reminds them to go after their fitness goals or helps them stay on track.
Fitness and health products also make great gifts because people don't always splurge on themselves for fancy self-care products. Gifting these to them makes for a really nice treat!
And honestly, even if the person does buy these things for themselves, this can be your way of saying I know what you care about and I'm going to help you get more out of your healthy lifestyle.
I wanted to share a holiday gift guide full of fitness, health, and wellness ideas that are on my list, or that I already have and think would make great gifts! I put them into categories for easier sorting.
Best of luck with your fitness gifts!
1. Hydration Gifts For Fitness Lovers
The gift of water sounds boring, right?
Make hydration easy, nutritious, or tasty with these gifts for your friend who loves to workout or wants to drink more water for various health reasons!
These tasty electrolyte tablets from Nuun come in a variety of flavors and uses, and are the perfect gift or stocking stuffer for the athlete in your life!
A Tracking Water Bottle
Help the aesthetic-loving wellness lover in your life stay on top of their water intake with a cute water bottle like this one that shows your progress for the day. Or a stainless steel water bottle for the fitness girl who's always on the go!
2. Athletic Gear
Can anyone be mad about new workout gear?
There's nothing more motivational than performance gear that actually supports your workout or a matching set that makes you feel and look good at the gym!
Under Armour Favorites
These Under Armour favorites double as practical and special gifts. Fitness lovers always are thankful for a new sports bra or leggings and tabbed running socks are literally the best stocking stuffers for runners.
And the Machina is a versatile and beautiful running/training shoe that comes in a bunch of cool colors.
"That Girl" Amazon Sets
I know a lot of gym-goers who love a cute, affordable gym set! If you've got a sporty-chic dresser in your life, definitely consider these sets.
These creative nutrition solutions make healthy eating easy and are great gifts for all!
Also, a great idea (not pictured) is an Inside Tracker nutrition system that just requires a simple blood test which then tells the taker everything they need to optimize their nutrition! (I took a few Inside Tracker tests myself).
A powdered green juice is also a fan favorite! Peak Performance is a delicious greens drink that has both vegetables and fruits in it to help fill in the gaps.
4. Fitness and Beauty Products
There are so many ways to treat someone who works out a lot with gifts that help them recover.
Don't just think about physical recovery, think about skincare for active individuals so they can keep their glow!
Here are some ideas:
Skincare for active women - such as Fre Skincare
5. Healthy Food Subscriptions
Treat your friends and family to the gift of not having to cook!
Eating healthy is so important, but when you're working or studying a lot and trying to find time for workouts and activities with friends, it gets pushed to the wayside.
If you know someone who's pretty busy but wants to learn how to start eating healthily, a meal delivery subscription might be the perfect gift. They'll love you for it.
Splendid Spoon is a great option for plant-based meals packed with superfoods that come ready to eat.
