Fabulous Fitness Related Gifts for the Fit-Gal in Your Life - Part 1

Hello all!

With Christmas coming up, I thought I'd share some of my picks for fitness related Christmas gifts this year. Whether you need a gift idea for a white elephant exchange at work, a gift for a friend, or for a loved one.

**Pro tip: make sure the recipient will be into your fitness related gift, you don't want to hurt anyone's feelings! I was on the receiving end of a fitness related gift many years ago when I wasn't into it, and it took me a while to get over it. :)

I went ahead and broke this list down by price point. I've got 5 under $20, 5 under $50, and 5 under $100, and 5 that are "money isn't an object" items for fun.

First up is our under $20 list.

Quick heads up, the name of the item is a link that will take you to Amazon. :)

Nathan Clip-On Deluxe LED Safety Strobe, $9.20 and Prime eligible

Friends don't let friends run in the dark without a light! Make sure your friends are seen while they're breaking a sweat outdoors before or after work. These lights are awesome for walkers, runners, bicyclists. Features and Specs from Amazon.

Under Armor Women's Braided Mini Headband, $4.88-13.99 and is not Prime eligible

I have one of these headbands and I absolutely love it! I might have to pick it up in the Knock Out/Lead color combo shown above. It's not too tight and has silicone grips to prevent slippage. A girl can never have too many kickass headbands. Info from Amazon

  • Comfortable shoulder sling with Velcro closure straps

AdNArt BTA711 Tritan Flavor it Water Bottle, $15 and Prime eligible

Mmmm, flavored water. Need I say more? Oh, you want me to say more. Ok. Flip-top lid to avoid spills, can handle boiling liquids (tea!), ultra resistant proof in case your friend likes to drop things, BPA  free, AND you can put this guy in the dishwasher. Details from Amazon

  • Withstands subfreezing to boiling temperatures
  • Extremely Impact Resistant

  • Flip lid top

This list, as with all the other lists, all items will be found on and I'll try to stick to Prime eligible items. Anyone else love Amazon+Prime? I've done my Christmas shopping solely through Amazon the past few years and it has been absolutely wonderful. I don't have to wait in line anywhere, price comparison is totally easy, and everything comes in boxes so wrapping gifts is a snap. But I digress… on with the list. 

Stay tunes for parts 2 through 4!
