I specifically remember telling myself that I wasn’t going to do a holiday gift guide this year. In all honesty, I think they’re a bit overdone, and I don’t think people are wanting them as much as they’re being put out there sometimes. But hey. Whatever.
So.. I was sitting here thinking about my own Christmas shopping list, and I thought.. gee, wouldn’t it be helpful if I had a guide I could reference for the majority of the presents I’ll be buying this year? (And all the bloggers said “told ya so!”)
I live in a house full of people obsessed with fitness and sports. So chances are good that my hard earned money this year will be going to all things fitness-related. Which leads me to this begrudging gift guide.
I’ve put together what I consider to be some pretty stellar gift ideas for the fitness fanatics in my life, which hopefully means you’ll find an idea or three for the fitness fanatics in your life.
Happy shopping! And don’t forget to comment with all the amazing sales and items you find! Don’t leave me hanging while I shop!

Holiday Gifts for Gym Lovers
This Garmin Vivoactive 4S is the perfect gift for the female runners in your life. Or even the walkers, skiers, or other athletes alike.
I received my first Garmin as a Christmas present a few years ago when I was training for the half marathon and I’ve been a fan of the brand ever since.
This watch is great if you’re wanting to get serious about tracking your mileage, pace, and all things related to running and being active.
The FitBit Versa is a great alternative to the Garmin if you’re on a budget.
Before switching over to my Garmin, I always wore a FitBit Blaze, but wanted to upgrade to the Versa.
I don’t have one, as I’m currently part of the Apple clan, but it’s definitely on my list to Santa. I love the Versa because it’s similar in appearance, and from what I understand, functionality to an Apple Watch.
It tracks your daily steps, calories burned, sleep, and more.
TRX bands are a great way to get a workout in, even if you don’t have room for a total home gym. They’re even pretty pack-friendly, meaning you can take them on the road with you if you’re traveling.
You can save 20% on anything at the TRX store with code: TRX20NATASHA.
Lululemon Wunderlust Duffle Bag
With 40 hours of listening time and a built in microphone, Beats are definitely the way to go this year for the fitness lover on your list.
Raycon Ear Buds
If Beats aren’t in the budget, Raycon Ear Buds are a great backup. High quality, great sound, and a good price.
Maven Thread Headbands
Maven Thread Headbands are cute, comfortable, and easy to throw in your bag on the go. They’re also the perfect size to cover up dirty hair (which is probably the most important feature of all).
If there’s one thing that’s leveled up it’s these Nike Metcons. They’re comfortable and great for the woman who spends time strength training in the gym.
Alo High Waist Moto Leggings
Alo High-Waisted Moto Leggings will forever be on my list of recommendations because they’re just that dang good.
Why I love them: High waist, super comfortable, and flattering (think – booty goals!) you won’t be disappointed in your new favorite pair of leggings. I wear mine to the gym, and also dress them up a little when I have other places to go.
If you’re budget-conscious and not wanting to drop the $$ on a pair of Alo or Lulu’s, then check out my favorite Colorfulkoala Leggings.
High quality, high comfort, and high waist.. yet low in price. A win all around.
Touch Screen Winter Running Gloves
If you really want to impress her, get her a pair of touch screen winter running gloves. These are a great choice because they’re affordable, plus they’re touch screen, meaning you can still mess with your smart phones without having to take them on and off a bagillion times.
Peach Bands Ab Discs
I love these ab discs because they’re easy to store or pack with you if you’re wanting to workout while traveling, and even though they may not seem like much – they’re great for a killer core workout.
Resistance Loop Bands
These are another great option for someone who travels a lot but still wants a great workout. You can even toss these in your gym bag for extra accessory work at the gym. Add them to your squats for a workout that burns.
Plus, the material on these are non-slip, so they’re not going to be like the annoying rubber ones that pinch and slide every time you move.
A Theragun is a must for anyone who works out. It’s the perfect recovery day tool.
