A Fitness Journal: Blogilates 12 Week Fit Journal
This Blogilates 12 Week Fit Journal ($25) is a great gift for the person in your life who's got goals, and wants an organized plan to reach them. With this journal, they can track their workouts, meals, sleep, stress, mood, and more!
Cute Crew Socks: Alo Unisex Half-Crew Throwback Sock
Crew socks are becoming more and more popular this season. We like them because, if you're working out outside, the little bit of exposed ankle between the hem of your leggings and the top of your ankle socks can make you unseasonably cold. Plus, they look so cute! We like these black Alo Unisex Half-Crew Throwback Socks ($22) because they blend in with black leggings, but there are lots of different color options available.
Great Running Shorts: Old Navy StretchTech Dolphin-Hem Run Shorts
If you know someone who loves to work out at a gym or studio, they're still probably wearing athletic shorts in the winter, and just throwing on a pair of sweats over top for traveling to and from their workout. These Old Navy StretchTech Dolphin-Hem Run Shorts ($6-$20) are easy to throw on and comfortable to wear. No matter how far they want to run, these are a great gift.
Yummy Chocolate: Chocolate Dumbbells
These Chocolate Dumbbells ($13) might just be their favorite present of the year. They're beyond adorable, and come with nine chocolates: three dark chocolate, three milk chocolate, and three white chocolate dumbbells. These are the sweetest gift they'll receive this season, and if you're lucky, maybe they'll share!
A Hat to Keep Warm: FP Movement Movement Cool Down Beanie
If they love working out outdoors, even in the winter, help them stay warm with the FP Movement Movement Cool Down Beanie ($20). The cozy design is available in seven color choices, but we love the chic camel shade.
Great For Sore Muscles: Tiger Tail Knotty Tiger Massage Ball
Yes, a massage makes a great gift, but it doesn't really fit in a stocking. Create some happy muscles by giving a Tiger Tail Knotty Tiger Massage Ball ($23) to hit the trigger points and break up the knots in key pressure points like their back, shoulders, and legs.
A Foldable Yoga Mat: Blogilates Foldable Yoga Mat
This Blogilates Foldable Yoga Mat ($20) is ideal for the person in your life who's always traveling, or only has a few minutes to squeeze some movement into their day. If they're always on the go, and want something easily portable, this is a great gift.
A Yummy Cookbook: Love Real Food
Kathryne Taylor, the mastermind behind the popular food blog Cookie and Kate, has knocked it out of the park with the vegetarian cookbook "Love Real Food" ($18, originally $28). They'll find all sorts of healthy recipes that will give them the nutrition they need after a workout.
Gloves For the Gym: Sanabul Boxing Handwrap Gloves
If they're getting into boxing or even weightlifting, they know the struggle of burgeoning callouses on their hands. These Sanabul Boxing Handwrap Gloves ($19, originally $30) make an awesome stocking stuffer. It also works if they're wary of communal machines or weights at the gym.
A Fun Notepad: Knock Knock Today's Plan of Attack Great Big Stickies
If they're super organized or have a specific fitness goal in mind, they'll stay motivated with these fun Knock Knock Today's Plan of Attack Great Big Stickies ($8). They can log their goals for everything from the office to workouts.
An Infuser Water Bottle: Cupture Fruit Infuser Water Bottle
A key part of health and fitness is staying hydrated, and if they need a little help in this department, try a water infuser. This Cupture Fruit Infuser Water Bottle ($13) is a great way to remember to keep on sipping. They can create so many yummy concoctions that will inspire them to drink more water.
A Fitness Essential Kit: Pinch Provisions Gym Kit
This Pinch Provisions Gym Kit ($24) is complete with 15 essentials that they might need at the gym. Deodorant towelettes? Check. Dry shampoo? Check. There's also a hair tie, tampon, headphones, lip balm, and even "emergency" socks, because you can never have too many socks.
A Huge Water Bottle: BuildLife 1 Gallon Water Bottle
Not only does the BuildLife 1 Gallon Water Bottle ($23) hold a person's entire daily water intake, but it cheers them on as they're drinking from it. They're going to love this gift, since they've likely seen these motivational bottles all over social media.
Great Hair Ties: L. Erickson Grab & Go Tube Set of 15 Ponytail Holders
Gym-goers with long hair will appreciate receiving the L. Erickson Grab & Go Tube Set of 15 Ponytail Holders ($22) as a gift. They're comfortable and won't give them the dreaded ponytail headache, which is always essential.
Great For Tendonitis: Vive Foot Rocker
This is such a unique gift, but one they'll love to use, particularly if they're always moving. After a good cardio session, this Vive Foot Rocker ($23) is great for stretching feet. If they have tendonitis or shin splints, this is one gift they'll be obsessed with.
A High Tech Beanie: EverPlus Bluetooth Beanie
If they're brave enough to exercise outdoors during the winter, get them the EverPlus Bluetooth Beanie ($23) — it has built-in headphones! Customers love that they can listen to music and take calls while they run, and the fact that there's even a place for a high ponytail is brilliant.
A Luxe Sleep Helper: Asutra Weighted Silk Eye Pillow
Every fitness-lover knows that sleep is important. They'll sleep like a baby with the Asutra Weighted Silk Eye Pillow ($22). It's super soft and comfortable, but definitely won't break the bank, which we love. It's also a great option for someone who's traveling and sleeping in hotels often.
For Married People: Rinfit Silicone Wedding Ring/Band Replacement
Outdoor activities and intense workouts don't always comply with jewelry. The Rinfit Silicone Wedding Ring/Band Replacement ($14) makes a great weather-proof and sweat-proof wedding band placeholder. It's one of those gifts they may not think to buy for themselves, but will be so happy they have. Gift this to your husband, wife, or fiancée for the holidays.
