2016 Holiday Gift Guide: for your fitness-loving friends

(or yourself!)

Hi friends! Hope you’re having a wonderful morning. The holiday Gift Guide fun continues! Here are the ones I’ve posted so far this year:

Gift Guide for Men

Gift Guide for your BFF and

Gift Guide for Holiday Hostesses

This is my favorite one to put together each year, for obvious reasons. I love fitness gear, and LOVE sharing awesome picks with others. I always love to hear what you’re enjoying, too! Here are some ideas if you’re shopping for your favorite yoga friend, Orangetheory buddy, or personal trainer. These are also fantastic ideas if your family members are still asking what they should get you this year. Just send this handy link along. 🙂

2016 Fitness Gifts for the Holidays


For the yoga lover:

A new yoga mat. This is the one I use the most, and it’s on super sale right now. I also love my La Vie Boheme mat, and always get tons of compliments on the gorgeous design.

Teeki pants. They have so many fun, unique prints, and they fit extremely well.

Spiritual Gangster apparel. I’m obsessed with this hamsa pullover, this celestial yin yang tank, and this tee. 

Mala beads. These ones are stunning.

Lotus jewelry. Alex & Ani has some gorgeous pieces, like this bracelet, and from today until the 15th, 20% of proceeds are going to support the Tennessee wildfires.

Pura Vida bracelets are hand-made in Costa Rica, and support 190 charities worldwide. The bracelets are beautiful, very inexpensive (the code HOLIDAY20 will get you 20% off), and help to provide income for artisans in Costa Rica.

For the Orangetheory and circuit-training fanatic:

New balance

New Balance sneakers. The Fresh Foam Zantes are super comfortable, supportive enough for shorter runs, and lightweight for circuit training. They’re my current everything shoe.

Lightweight tank top. These are perfect for super sweaty workouts.

Supportive and comfortable crops.


For the gym rat:

A TRX. Pretty much everyone I know who works out at the gym wants their own TRX. They are AWESOME to have at home, and extremely versatile. ($50 off right now, too!)

Fitness watch or heart rate monitor. I have a TomTom3 on the way, and can’t wait to try it out!

A S’well bottle

Wireless headphones. These are my fave. 🙂

Taco tank

For the runner:

Running tee

Funny running tank. The best part is watching people read these tanks and snicker to themselves.

Lightweight shorts

Comfy handheld water bottle

Cover the entry fee to a race they’ve been scoping out

A pretty running hat 


For barre and Pilates friends:

Sticky socks

Sassy leggings (<— gahhhh these are amazing.) You can never have too many.

Barre tank (so many good ones here!)

Pilates tank

Hoodie or jacket to wear to and from the studio. This grey one is perfect for heading to work out, or for weekends and errands.



Fitness stocking stuffers:

A class pass to their favorite studio, or a fitness date to a new fitness activity you’ve been wanting to try together

A massage or spa treatment

Athletic socks (we love Balega and Bombas)


Favorite bars, energy gels, and protein powders

Single-serve collagen. I’ve been having this every day for months now, and have noticed a huge difference in my skin and hair. You can read more about it here. 

Hair ties

Dry shampoo and mini essentials for their gym bag, like shampoo, conditioner, smoothing cream, and deodorant

So tell me friends: what’s on your fitness wish list?

Leave a comment below and I’ll pick a lucky winner (and announce in this week’s Friday Faves) to pick any of the tops from this post as their prize.



Companies are not able to sponsor spots on my gift guides, and all products are curated by yours truly. This giveaway is sponsored by Liv and Penelope, who always support fitness-related buying decisions. Affiliate links are included, which do not impact purchase price.

    That grey jacket or a massage sounds like perfect presents!

  3. Laura on December 14, 2016 at 6:36 pm

    I need some new workout leggings!

  4. Jen on December 14, 2016 at 8:41 pm

    Great round up! On my wishlist: Reebok Crossfit Nano 6.0s! I actually bought a pair when Reebok was having a crazy sale over black friday, but they were too small so I had to return them, sadly!

  5. Jane S. on December 14, 2016 at 9:08 pm

    I have been on the lookout for good winter running tops. I do NOT like being cold when I run so I am always looking for the best quality pullovers and jackets!

  6. Lisa on December 14, 2016 at 9:36 pm

    An Orangetheory studio is opening in my city this month! So my biggest fitness wish would be a package of OTF classes. But I wouldn’t mind some new workout clothes, either

  7. Shelly S. on December 15, 2016 at 6:47 am

    Great list! Love the yoga mat.

  8. Tressie on December 15, 2016 at 8:23 am

    Workout clothes!!
