There are a ton of gift guides out there right now from gifts for those that love gardening and cooking to those that love wine or Jack Daniels memorabilia. Here are my top recommendations of gifts for fitness gurus. Several of these items are things that I already own and some are things I’d love to have! Let me know your gift ideas in the comments below!
❄️ The FlipBelt
This, patent pending fitness belt is perfect for those that like to listen to music when they workout, take their phone on the run or hike, need a place for cash or ID at a race,… You get the picture, it holds essentials while you workout! The FlipBelt fits snug around your waist and has pockets for various items, and it doesn’t bounce, chafe, or ride up. You put your items in the pockets then flip the belt over (so pocket slits face your belly) and you’re ready to run or hike or lift or walk or cycle or even wear it while vacationing and touring. It fits under your clothes or on top of them depending on your preference. It is also made out of a moisture wicking material and has a reflective logo. It comes in a ton of fun bright colors (see below) and at just $28.99 and free shipping, this fitness belt is a great buy. Oh, and did I mention that I have a discount code for you? Get 10% off with code Sweat10. Pssst, if you put your email in the comments below, I can get you 33% off! *(limited quantities available)
* FlipBelt, in partnership with FitApproach and the Sweat Pink Ambassador program, provided me with a FlipBelt free of charge for review purposes, however all opinions are my own. I am under no obligation to return the FlipBelt and am free to keep it for my personal use.
❄️ Sparkly Soul Headbands
I cut my bangs a few years ago and anyone who has bangs and works out know how vital a good headband is. The most irritating aspect of most headbands is that they slide back and fall off. Enter: Sparkly Soul. These headbands Stay. Put. Period. Plus they come in tons of colors and they are 360 degrees of sparkle. You do have to wear them as directed (close to your forehead), but they honestly do not move. I’ve run half marathons in them and not had to adjust a single time. These headbands are on the pricey side at $17 for the wider bands, they are totally worth it. Plus, right now with code HOLIDAY you save 15% and get free shipping if you spend $25!
❄️ Garmin Forerunner 220
The 220 is the perfect watch for a runner that wants to know how far they’ve gone, how fast they are going, and what their overall pace was. It has extra features too, such as you can program workouts using the Garmin Connect software and app. There are free workouts in Garmin Connect that you can send to your watch. It also keeps track of your records and buzzes you when you’ve hit a milestone (fastest or longest). If you have a heart rate monitor with ANT you can also track heart rate. I personally love mine and can’t imagine how I ran without it before!
❄️ Live The Process Gym Clutch
For the fashionably fit, this pouch is the perfect gift. It is large enough to stash your gym clothes in, but chic enough to use as a clutch as well. The material is a water proof vinyl and is lined with a Japanese Cotton for breathability. I got mine from Birchbox, but it is also available here.
I know, your’re thinking, “how does jewelry fit into this fitness gift guide?” Think about themed jewelry such as this I Am A Runner necklace on Etsy for only $19. It is simple, yet elegant and offers a positive reminder that you are a runner.
And what gift guide would be complete with out ideas for Stocking Stuffers?!
❄️ Under Armour Hair Ties
I love these hair ties and at $10, they make a great stocking stuffer. While I don’t have the Under Armour ones, I do have several other brands of them and they are exclusively what I use on my hair. They are gentle on my hair and they don’t cause creasing like other hair ties. An added bonus is that they also look cute on your wrist!
❄️ iTunes Gift Card
This is a great gift for anyone on your list (I’m putting them in my kids’ stockings this year and maybe in my husband’s as well)! Not only can you use it to buy more songs for your workout playlist, but you can also use it to purchase apps for such things as interval timer, step counter, or nutrition calculator.
❄️ Sweat Pink Shoelaces
And finally, since I am a Sweat Pink Ambassador and a major fan of the color PINK, I love the idea of everyone getting a set of these fun shoelaces in their stocking. You can get them for only $2.99 and, trust me, they look great in all running shoes!
