Fit and Healthy Holiday Gift Guide
This holiday season, show your family and friends how much you love them by gifting them with products that will help them stick around a little bit longer. Check out the official Repke Fitness Holiday Gift Guide to find the perfect present for your fit-minded friends, or to find some good ideas to put on your own wishlist.
For The Gym Devotee – A Gym Bag Filled With Essentials
For the eco-conscious, socially-conscious water guzzler who also craves beautifully crafted products, the S’well bottle is “composed of non-leaching and non-toxic 18/8 stainless steel, [and] keeps your drinks cold for 24 hours and hot for 12, while giving back to those in need. S’well is a charitable community member and proud partner of charitable organizations.” Shop S’well here.
No gym bag is complete without a great dry shampoo. Batiste dry shampoo will let your loved ones fit a workout in, even if they don’t have time to recreate their hairdo.
Add a few more fun products for your gym buddy’s gift to let them try products that might work well for them in the new year. Non-slip headbands, muscle relief gels, and microfiber towels are great additions to a well-stocked gym bag gift.
For The Yoga Lover
Laura Segro is a yoga instructor at the Azulik Hotel in Tulum. She recently recommended a new product to me called Yoga Spots. Laura learned about these portable yoga accessories when the product was being photographed at her work resort. Yoga Spots are small circular pads that can be flipped to either grip or glide on the floor. Laura has been using her spots religiously, even after her dog attempted to use one as a chew toy. She told me, “My dog ate half of one and they still work!” We can’t all do sun salutations at a Mayan Spa resort, but we can fit in a few poses into our day with Yoga Spots.
I really enjoy doing yoga, but I don’t enjoy spending money on myself. If I were to add health-related accessories to my holiday wishlist, it would be this pretty bolster from Hugger Mugger. After a few days of serious sweating with a personal trainer, restoration yoga is a necessary indulgence. A new bolster to prop under knees while sinking into the earth can also be a work of art with a beautiful pattern and comfortable fabric.
Clothes and Accessories
There are a lot of brands out there with great names and high prices, but every fit friend I know continues to rave about the performance of Old Navy compression pants. These pants are available in a wide range of sizes and styles for men and women. There is nothing like a new workout wardrobe to inspire a new year of exercise.
One of my best fitness purchases this year was an ankle band for the Fitbit that I received last Christmas. After a few months of being frustrated that I wasn’t counting steps when carrying my child or pushing a shopping cart, I found this Etsy shop that works as a cover and allows a fitbit to be worn on the ankle. I need every suburban step I take to be counted if I’m ever going to beat my city-dwelling friends in the daily challenges!
The Healthy Foodie
For your healthy friend who loves to cook, kitchen gadgets that help create delicious, nutritious meals will be a sure hit this holiday season.
Everyone is in on the spiralized vegetable craze for nutrient-dense, low calorie alternatives to high carb pasta dishes. The OXO Good Grips 3 blade spiralizer includes a stronghold suction cup to keep the appliance safely attached to the countertop during use. You may benefit from this gift when your friend invites you over for zoodles or my favorite, butternut squash noodles.
Other recommendations for healthy food lovers include fabulous new cookbooks like Thug Kitchen(for the irreverent vegan in your life), Skinnytaste Fast and Slow, or the Instant Pot cookbook to go along with the wildly popular Instant Pot pressure cookers. Subscriptions to food services such as Sun Basket or Hello Fresh allow your friends to cook inspired new dishes.
