Thanks to Starbucks and your favorite morning radio station, it feels like the Christmas holiday season started weeks ago. You know the marketing starts earlier and earlier every year, so you switched radio stations and decided to make your own tea at the office.
But Thanksgiving is this week! Looking at the calendar you realize that time has gotten away from you and it will be Christmas in just three weeks. Don’t worry if you don’t know what to get the fitness lovers on your list. I’ve got you covered with eight gift ideas for fitness lovers.
Let’s start with a gift that works for both the mom who likes to workout at home while the kids sleep or the road warrior trying to get her workout in at the hotel without venturing down to the hotel gym. The WOOSL resistance bands are precisely what they need for their home gym or suitcase. Made from fabric instead of rubber, they provide a challenge to your lower body workout without pinching or rolling.
Is there a runner or walker on your list who likes to go out before the sun rises or after work when it’s dark? They need the Noxgear Tracer 360 visibility vest to make sure they stay seen and safe. The vest is lightweight and easy to adjust with flashing lights to make sure they stand out on the road.
If you have a gym lover on the list, you probably don’t want to buy them dumbbells or another gym bag. I’ve got two suggestions for the person who loves to lift. The first is a Rocketbook Everlast Notebook. With this endlessly reusable smart notebook you can say goodbye to the stacks of workout journals cluttering up the office. Watch the video below to see how it works.
Has your spouse ever left their ring behind in the gym locker room? I know I’ve returned more than one ring to a client who was afraid it would fly off during medicine ball slams. That’s why the love of your life needs a silicone band from SafeRingz. Their silicone wedding bands are biocompatible, made of hypoallergenic silicone and are non-conductive. In three styles and variety of colors, they are the perfect fit for an active lifestyle.
We all know that buying tea for tea lovers can be a risky proposition. But what about a new tea electric tea kettle? I adore my new Cuisinart Perfect Temp Cordless Electric Tea Kettle and I know the tea drinker on your list will too. With six temperature presets you will always get the perfect cup of tea. The 1.7 L capacity means you can make tea for the entire party and the 30 minute keep warm feature will let you quickly make another pot.
If you’re looking for something truly unique for the tea aficionado, the handcrafted glass tea cups from Boujloud Market are exactly what you are looking for. The handblown glass decorated with intricate designs will make any afternoon tea break feel special.
Do you need something to help your college student eat a little bit better away from home? Or perhaps you’re looking for a thoughtful hostess gift? The Cold Kickin’ Box from Silk Road Apothecary can take core of both. In the box, you’ll find their Active Immune Spice blend, designed to make your soup delicious and healing with the power of herbs and spices. You can mix the spices with the broth base for a simple soup and use the recipe cards if you want to get fancy. There is also soothing herbal tea designed to help support your immune system while keeping you warm on a cold winter’s night.
Finally, here’s the perfect thing for any locavore – swag from Farmers Market of the Ozarks! I love (and own) the shirts that say “Cool Beets” and “You wanna peach of me?”. Who can resist a little foodie humor? You’ll find more cheeky t-shirts, stylish hats and reusable shopping bags at the Market Hub. Farmers Market of the Ozarks is open year-round. But you won’t want to miss the special Small Business Saturday market on November 30 from 8 am – 1 pm and the evening pop-up market on December 18 from 4 – 8 pm for all your holiday shopping needs and last-minute gift ideas for fitness lovers. (And foodies too!)
