What do you gift someone who seems to live on kale smoothies and sweaty workouts? We all have that person in our lives (or maybe we are that person). The classic bottle of bubbly or box of chocolates won’t cut it. Lucky for you, we have a perfect list of things to buy for that fitness savvy person in your life.
1. A Slice Classpack
Nothing says Merry Christmas and Happy New Year like a fitness class package. (We obviously had to start with a plug) Honestly, if a guy I was dating bought me this I would marry him tomorrow….(jokes). But seriously, its useful, thoughtful and they were probably going to buy it anyway. Also, if you are a regular Slicer you can have a companion to take classes with! It also shows that you pay attention to details about their lifestyle which is quite nice. The perfect gift if you ask me.
2. A New Workout Kit
There’s literally nothing better than new workout clothes. It makes you feel like you can run 3 marathons and deadlift 300kg. Cute fitness clothes are the perfect gift for your fit loved ones who basically live in leggings and cute sports bras. Some super cute fitness brands include; Lululemon, Sweaty Betty, Alo Yoga, and Adidas.
3. A Foam Roller
Honestly foam rollers do not get the attention they deserve. Speaking from personal experience, adding foam rolling to my fitness routine has shortened my recovery time and loosened my tight muscles (esp. The IT band and quads). It’s a perfect gift for the runner or cross-fitter in your life, and buy yourself one while you’re at it! Here are two awesome foam rollers to gift - Lululemon, Amazon.
4. An Almond Cow
I just recently purchased an Almond Cow and it has changed my life. Gone are the days of consuming plant based milk loaded with preservatives and thickeners! The Almond Cow allows you to make your own mylk from any kind of nut/grain you can think of! It is the perfect gift for that super health conscious person in your life.
Purchasing an Almond Cow cuts down so much waste in the form of eliminating the need for packaging (we see you throwing those Oatly cartons in the bin every week), while also reducing the waste produced by the animal agriculture industry! Do yourself, your loved one and the earth a favour and invest in one of these!
5. A Spa Day
Every fitness buff needs a day off. A spa day is always a great gift because it is something people rarely will buy for themselves. There are tons of great packages at spas in London or you can splurge for a spa getaway weekend in the countryside this article lists the best spa getaways near London.
6. A Healthy Cooking Class
Is your fitness friend also a major foodie?? Why not combine their two interests and buy them a healthy cooking class? This is also a cute way to spend some time together and learn a few things in the process. The Urban Kitchen hosts a variety of healthy eating workshops and Borough Kitchen also does some healthy cooking classes!
7. A Whole Foods Gift Card
Who doesn’t love Whole Foods? If you are struggling to figure out what to get for someone, a gift card to Whole Foods is always a safe bet. There is something for everyone there and it fits perfectly into any wellness lovers lifestyle.
8. A Soy/Natural Wax Candle
Go full Hygge by gifting candles this winter. All natural wax candles that is. Did you know that most candles are made of paraffin wax, which creates highly toxic benzene and toluene when burned (both are known carcinogens)? In fact, the toxins released from paraffin candles are the same as those found in diesel fuel fumes. However, candles made with natural wax such as soy and coconut wax are totally safe! And who doesn’t love a cute candle? Here is a cute soy wax candle and here’s another!
9. A Luxury Bath Set
Every health freak loves a good self-care sesh. Treat your wellness savvy friend to a set of body scrubs and bath salts for some everyday relaxation. Aesop makes great gifts but Lush is also a cute and more affordable option.
10. A Subscription to Fabletics
Last but not least, the gift that keeps on giving. Fabletics sends new workout clothes to your door every month. If you’re feeling super generous sign them up and pay their subscription for a year or 6 months or even 3! It’s super thoughtful and cute.
