‘Tis the season to buy things for yourself or for others, as well as spend quality time and spread holiday cheer.

Gift and shopping guide for fitness-loving ladies by A Lady Goes West blog

I like to invest in workout wear, because it needs to last. Some of these pieces I have myself or would love to get. And they’re classic, because they likely won’t go out of style any time soon.

By the way, you can wear this stuff while working out, or even while doing your regular everyday activities in your active-wear. (See this video if you don’t know what that means.) Let’s get to the loot …

Gifts for the stylish fitness-loving lady

(If you click on each piece, you’ll be automatically directed to the appropriate website to order the item.)

And for a break-down of the above items …

  • Sweet sneakers for weight-lifting. Sweet sneakers for cross-training.
  • Casual sneaks to wear on your feet on the way to a yoga or barre class.
  • Leg-warmers for function, but mostly fashion.
  • Sockies that keep your feet dry and happy.
  • Super sturdy workout leggings.
  • No-pull ombre hair-ties to blend into your ponytail and a headband to keep your mane in place during a serious sweat session.
  • A running jacket, a comfy jacket and a cold-weather jacket.
  • Two pairs of shorty shorts for cardio.
  • Some of my favorite sports bras, this one for high-impact activities, this one for style and this one for all working out.
  • Loose and functional workout tops and a long-sleeve beauty.
  • An awesome vest, because that’s what the cool kids are wearing to keep their torso warm these days, and they really work.
  • Another fabulous pair of leggings to wear anywhere.
  • Black bags are the thing. I have this one, but this one is awesome too.
  • And a mat and a roller to round it all out, because every stylish fitness gal should have her own. 

You can’t go wrong with classic workout pieces from the tried and tested brands like Nike, Lululemon, Under Armour and more. And when it comes to timeless basics, the solid colors of black and white are always a good choice in my book, but a pop of color can be fun too.

Happy shopping, my friends!

Questions of the day

What’s your favorite piece of workout wear?

  1. I love my leg warmers, but they always fall down!!! They are so cute and sweater-like, but they are also kind of annoying… I need some that will stay the freak up! I’m really excited, though, the vest that I have wanted forever went on MAJOR sale last week, and my size was the only size left. sccccooorree!

    1. Sweet! Happy vesting to you, Susie! And my leg warmers don’t stay up on shiny pants, but they do on cotton pants. πŸ™‚ The struggle …

  2. I asked for new tennis shoes for Christmas. I should probably add extra-strength hair ties though… my hair is very thick, so I need extra strong hair ties or my hair is just flying every where. Loving that vest!

    1. Ohhhh the joy of super thick hair, you lucky lady!! πŸ™‚ YAY for you! I bet the braid is your best friend when it comes to workout ‘dos!

  3. I am loving that yoga mat! Those colours are perfect! I have been bringing my workouts into my apartment so a great mat is always on my list. The leg warmers are too cute, also!! xx SS

    1. Hi Shannon! Thanks for saying hi, lady! YES for at-home workouts using a good mat. Anything you can add to make your space more useable of course. Have a great day! πŸ™‚

  4. I always appreciate a good Athleta or lululemon gift card! The best gear I have are my lulu running crops WITH POCKETS. Never messing around with those armband thingys on a run! I wish more womens fitness manufacturers will get on the girls-like-pockets-too bandwagon!

    1. Ahh yes, you need warm stuff for outdoor fitness. Almost all of my workouts happen inside, but I like to stay warm on the walk into the gym heheh! ?

  5. This list helped me decide what to give my wife next week for her birthday. I make it a point to shower her with gifts on her birthday week because well, she deserves it! She loves running so I think a couple of items on your list would surely bring a smile on her face. Thank you for sharing! πŸ™‚
