T-Minus 25 Days! Stuck For Christmas Gift Ideas?


It’s the most wonderful time of the year! But not when the countdown is on and you’re still struggling to find ideas and inspiration for the most perfect Christmas gift!

Don’t worry, I’ve got your back. That’s why I’ve put together this practical post – fitness related Christmas gift ideas that are hot in the industry right now. I’ve made sure to include something for everyone, plus a range of prices and sizes from stocking fillers to main gifts. It’s also worth mentioning, I’m not endorsed or sponsored by any of the products below. I just believe they’re worth talking about.

christmas gift ideas

Water Bottle
Keep your gift recipient hydrated all year round with a decent water bottle. We should be aiming for “0.033L of water x bodyweight in kg” per day. Having a good quality water bottle to hand makes achieving this goal so much easier. Take a look into this large sized gallon hydrator from Myprotein. Or these aluminium bottles from S’well never seem to go out of style. 

Yoga Mat
With classes like yoga, Pilates, meditation and sound healing growing in popularity having your own mat to take to these classes can make all the difference. Most yoga mats manufacturers strive to make their products as eco-friendly as possible. But this Cork Space cork yoga mat takes it a step further. For a stylish option with superb grip take a look at this Lululemon reversible mat.

Gym Trainers
You can never have enough pairs of gym trainers! A decent pair of gym shoes can not only help support your feet and improve performance, but they can also complete your gym outfit for the more fashion conscious. Your fitness-fanatic family and friends will love a new pair as a Christmas gift. Every release I’m always impressed by the Nike Metcons as a great all rounder gym shoe. For more of a barefoot feel and healthier, stronger feet check out these Vivobarefoot numbers.

Motivational music can turn a good workout into a great one and a decent set of headphones to listen to your music from makes all the difference. I don’t know about your gym, but the music in my gym is pretty dire. So headphones for me are a must. You can’t go wrong with the AirPods from Apple. Or for an over-ear style that look insanely good, the wireless beats solo3 are a great choice. 

Foam Roller
A foam roller is a Christmas gift that everyone will love as it brings health, fitness and recovery back into the home. Regular use of a foam roller can help release trigger points, unknot tight tissues, improve blood flow and correct muscle imbalances. Having one to hand at home means it can be used any time day you have a spare 10 minutes. To really go all out check out this Battlestar kit from MobilityWOD. I love the idea of having a cradle that the roller can sit in as you move up and down. Or for a simple option the Trigger Point GRID foam roller is a good choice. I’ve personally had mine for years and it’s still going strong with multiple uses per week.

Fitness Watch
Fitness watches are huge in the industry right now and make for a great Christmas gift everyone will love. And despite many negative claims in the press of the inaccuracy of the results they give out, at the end of the day they’ll all give you a good idea of your activity and rest levels. The two products dominating the market this year are of course Fitbit and Apple.
