A Christmas Gift Guide for Fitness Fanatics
With five weeks to go until Christmas, shopping for loved ones can prove to be a hassle when it comes to finding inspiration. As we know gift buying over the festive season can be stressful, we have put this article together as a brainstorm to help you find the perfect gift for that special someone. Do you have a fitness fanatic in your life which seems to have everything? Then this blog post will help you find inspiration to find that special gift for your family and friends.
Novelty Gifts for Fitness Lovers
The first category of gifts we are going to look at is novelty present ideas for fitness fanatics. Novelty gifts are a great way to add a personal flare to everyday essentials while making your family and friends smile when they open the gift. Novelty presents also make for great conversation starters when they are meeting new like-minded fanatics.
- Slogan Mug
- Subscription Boxes
- Slogan Clothing
- Magazine Subscriptions
- Personalised Essentials
Slogan accessories are one way for them to make a statement, whether it is a keyring, bag, phone case, mug, water bottle etc. You can also find great items of clothing which can be customised with your loved ones name for a personal touch.
A great novelty gift idea which would also become handy would be to sign them up to a subscription box. A subscription box usually contains a variety of products which are delivered once a month to help inspire and allow your loved one to explore new ideas in the world of fitness. The range of boxes are vast and just a few examples are a nutritional box, meal preparation box, fitness clothing box, fitness accessories box, workout snacks etc.
If they love reading and gaining their new fitness inspiration from books and magazines, then you could also consider a new piece of reading material for them. You can sign them up for a subscription to their favourite magazine so that they never miss an issue or order them the new cookbook from popular chefs or latest trends and diets.
Health lovers adore when they can combine their life of fitness and exercise with the 21st century through gadgets and tools on their smartphones. So why not consider investing in a handy gadget for them to use to help them get the most out of their training? Here are some examples:
- Smart Watch
- Water Bottle Tracker
- Fitness Video Games
A smart watch is an essential for most gym go-errs as it allows them to track the effectiveness of their workouts while also logging their nutritional intake too. This gadget is a great way for them to get a better insight into their overall wellbeing.
If one of their main goals is to make sure that they get on top of their water intake, then a water bottle with a tracker on it would be very handy. These bottles monitor how often you take a sip of water and have the ability to give you reminders and alerts to drink more water.
A fun way for them to mix fitness with pleasure is to purchase them a fitness DVD or video game which they can play in the comfort of their own home. This would make a great present idea for those who struggle with motivation to work out when they are unable to get to the gym or for those who are new to the fitness world.
Experience Gift Ideas
Along with gadgets and accessories, you could also look at purchasing an experience for your loved one which will not only give them a new experience with fitness but will also help them creating lasting memories and maybe inspire them to continue attending sessions. Here are a few examples:
- Yoga Retreat
- Spa Break
- Fitness Festival Tickets
A great present idea for those who love Yoga would be to purchase them an experience at a Yoga retreat. This would be the perfect way for them to meet new friends who have a passion for yoga as well as improving their technique and discovering new elements and practices within the exercise.
If your loved one has been vigorously training recently, a spa break might be the perfect idea for them as they would be able to relax and restore their tired muscles in a calming atmosphere. These types of breaks range from day passes to weekends and much more depending on your criteria and budget.
There are a number of health and wellbeing focused festivals around and these would be a superb gift for a fitness fanatic as these festivals help to inspire people through exercises and connection with other likeminded people.
