December, already? Here’s a guide with gift ideas for a fit girl who has everything …
I don’t know about you, but the holiday shopping season snuck up on me this year. Because I do a family Secret Santa gift exchange with Dave’s many siblings, I had a chance to think about what I wanted more than a month ago when I input my list (we use Draw Names, by the way), yet, I still haven’t been ready to do my portion of the shopping, and I keep putting it off. Now that it’s officially December, it’s time to dig in.
As I started to search around and find cool things, I thought I’d give you some options to inspire your search as well. I hope you enjoy these ideas of things to give the healthy fitness-loving girl in your life!
S’well water bottle
These are the bottles of the moment. I don’t actually have one, but I see them all over town when I visit studios and gyms as a teacher and as a student. These S’well bottles are double-insulated too, so rumor has it they can keep a beverage cold for up to 24 hours and hot for up to 12. Wow! The best part? S’well donates a portion of the proceeds to UNICEF. Love that! These bottles come in all shapes, sizes and colors. Here are a few of my favorites …
Patterned yoga mat
Even if you don’t do yoga, you can use a yoga mat for core and balance work at home or at the gym. And I mean, you definitely want to bring your own mat if you’re going to be laying around on a mat in a public place. I came across these gorgeous and unique patterned yoga mats on the Interwebs and just had to share them with you. By the way, if you’re going to get someone a yoga mat, you should also consider getting them a yoga towel. As a hot yoga participant, I frequently sweat all over my mat and have tried using a beach towel, and it’s just not the same. Here are some mat and towel options …
It can be hard to head out for a workout in the morning or in the evening after work when it’s super cold, so you have to keep your body bundled. You can never have too many zip-up hoodies, especially if you live in the Bay Area and are accustomed to layering, casual clothes and microclimates. I’m in the market for a nice black thick one, but here are some of my other faves …
For a lot of fitness-loving girls, even if you aren’t working out, you’re probably hanging out in comfortable workout-type clothing. Joggers are the perfect transition pant. I have two pairs, and I wear them far more often than is appropriate. You can wear these loose sweatpants as pajamas, over shorts to the gym on a cold day or around town to run errands. Here are some of my faves worthy of gifting …
Studio gift cards
Have you ever asked a studio-hopping fit girl how much she spends each month or year on gym memberships and studio drop-in rates? A lot. In fact, she may not tell you the truth because it’s so bad. That’s why if your girl goes to Pure Barre, CorePower Yoga, SoulCycle or other spots, give her the gift of a free month, or even a package of classes. She’ll love it!
While the best gifts you can give someone this holiday season include your time, friendship, support and love, material things can be fun too. I wish you the best of luck shopping for the people special to you!Check out the best #gifts for a #fitness-loving girl thanks to @apstyle ... #GiftGuide #Holidays #Shopping Click To Tweet
