Looking for the perfect gift for the fitness addict in your life? Or maybe you’re hoping to motivate a friend or family member to be more active? In either case, there’s a bounty of possibilities. Here are a few types of gifts that will encourage your loved ones to get moving.
There are a number of small, inexpensive items that would make great stocking stuffers for family members or token gifts for your workout buddies. Some ideas include:
- Workout socks
- Energy bars
- Health magazines
- Safety lights (for running or biking)
Under the tree
Impress them this year with new gear to add to their arsenal. A few ideas include:
- Sports bags
- Exercise mats
- Running shoes
- Active wear
- Sports equipment
To make the most impact, reflect on the person’s hobbies and pursuits. For instance, if your brother is a cycling enthusiast, see if he needs a new helmet or seat. Or maybe your sister wants to take up tennis. Get her a racket and tennis balls or even lessons. The point is to take each individual’s interests into consideration.
If they already have everything
If you’re unsure what the individual you’re shopping for needs, a great idea is to buy them a gift card for their favourite sporting goods store. Or, to really wow them, present them with a gym membership, a sports massage, several sessions with a personal trainer or an appointment with a nutritionist. These types of gifts are almost certain to be appreciated.
