Gift Ideas for Men:
Nike is always a hot ticket gift idea and this year the men’s selection is very on-trend. From shoes to apparel you can’t go wrong. The Nike Tech Regular Fit Fleece Hoodie features contrasting colors that standout and a drawstring hood for cool weather. This sweatshirt is great for workouts, post-gym outings or for casual occasions and is priced at $65. Pair the hoodie with the Nike Heritage Jogger Pant for a comfortable and sporty look. Plus, jogger pants are a extremely popular this season and this option features a price point of $55.
Adidas Ultraboost Running Shoes are a no-brainer when it comes to fitness apparel and these shoes range in price from $120 to $220. They’re available in loads of color options and were designed to be lightweight for your best stride yet. These shoes will take you from the streets or to the gym in a breeze. With very high ratings, this gift will not disappoint.
Fitness Fanatic Women:
Finding comfortable leggings that stay up throughout your workout, sculpt your body and are comfortable can be tough. However, I personally have found that Lululemon’s Align Pants check all of the boxes and last for years. These pants are made of fabric that is quick-drying, sweat-wicking, and offers lightweight coverage. They’re also available in an array of color options and my favorite features is that it contains a cell phone holder built into the side on the pants. These do run on the pricer side at $128, however the materials are very high quality.
Fitness trackers are a dime a dozen these days, but finding one that actually fits your style can be tough. Kate Spade’s Two-tone Bracelet Touchscreen Watch is elegant, stylish and you can wear it to the gym or to a holiday event. This watch also provides support for calls, message and app alerts, as well as tracking your steps, calories and even has workout recommendations. Priced at $325, this item would be a perfect gift for a loved one.
Stocking stuffers that everyone will love:
For last minute stocking stuffers, the women’s Athleta’s Cold Weather Training Reflective Headband is a great option, especially during cold weather. Its reflective detailing is perfect for early or late workouts and it comes in two color options. If your loved one is not a fan of headbands, the Cold Weather Training Reflective Beanie may better suit them.
Not being able to use your phone while out in the cold is a dread. However, with Lululemon’s Resolute Runner Gloves you can keep your hands warm on outdoor runs and access your phone. These gloves also features sweat-wicking breathable material for added comfort and reflective details to help keep you visible in low light.
