Next week is Christmas. Have you done your shopping? I haven’t done much shopping at all. I should probably get on it. Just in case you’re still searching for the perfect gift or stocking stuffer, I thought I would go ahead and put my list out there. All the lists out there seem to be the same: running shoes, running fuel, blah blah blah. Here is my list of great gifts for your fitness/health junkie friends:
The price buster:
An iPod. I know you can listen to music on your phone and most people do. But I think it’s great to have something that is just dedicated to the workout. That way the person isn’t getting interrupted with phone calls or text messages when they are working out.
The stocking stuffer idea alternative for the iPod:
Fitletic Armbad for $23.99. I see people carrying their phones/iPods all the time and I think that’s nuts. Put it on your arm and get your workout on without worrying about dropping the phone or whatever.
Gift a Spotify account for your buddy. It’s $10 a month and access to unlimited music (that’s available). That way a person can get access to all the music they like without being hit with a download restriction. And of course, there is always an iTunes giftcard for music!
The useful gift:
The Isobag cooler. I’m going to do a full review of this cooler very soon for a video so i won’t spend too much time talking about it now. But it’s a great gift for people who carry food with them often. This cooler will be a meal preppers dream. The coolers are a little on the expensive side but totally worth it. The 3 meal edition is $65, but it comes with a lot of useful stuff.
The stocking stuffer addition to the cooler:
Health Warrior Chia Bars are the greatest. I definitely hope I can get some of these in my stocking. Chia seeds are a superfood and these bars taste so great in all flavors. These are great snacks and excellent pre-workout! The health minded are always looking for good snacks that are portable and these bars are pretty amazing.
Random gifts most would love:
The Keysmart 2.0 organizes all your keys into something manageable. I think this is a good gift because when I go to the gym or out for a run I’m always wondering about my keys and where to put them. This little thing organizes the keys which will be able to store in a pocket with all the jingle jangle. This retails for $19.99 in a variety of colors.
Pro Compression socks are my favorite compression socks ever! The motto is keep it tight and they definitely do! The avid workout person would love to have these help with recovery. The socks comes in different colors and designs and retail for $50, but right now you can enter promo code 2014 and get everything for 42% off. That’s a great deal.
The Skinny Taste cookbook is a must! I love skinnytaste.com and found it very helpful for recipes when I wanted to try out some new stuff. Now Gina has a cookbook and it’s taken the world by storm. It’s a great gift that will keep on giving.
I hope you find the list helpful for finding some good gifts.
What is on your Christmas list this year?
