The holiday season is upon us, which means it’s time to start thinking about gifts for the special people in your life. For some people, picking that perfect gift is easy: they want a new smartphone or game console or perhaps a gift card to go buy all of the latest fashion trends. However, what do you get for the fitness buff in your life? You know, the one who brings their own protein shakes when they come to dinner, and has biceps the size of your leg. Well, stop worrying. Here are five perfect gifts, other than perhaps some health insurancefor all those crazy stunts, for the fitness buff in your life.
1. Filtered, Stainless Steel Water Bottle
Whether your friend or loved one loves hiking, biking and rock climbing or simply likes standing out at the gym, a stainless steel water bottle is sure to be appreciated. What’s so special about a water bottle you ask? Well, first of all stainless steel bottles are BPA free, which means they won’t leach toxins into the water while you are out hiking in the heat. Also, a filtered bottle can remove 99.9 percent of the pollutants found in tap water, lake water or stream water. Top it off with a fairly hefty price tag (for a water bottle), and your friend will know you aren’t skimping on them this year.
2. Reflective Fitness Clothing
Heading out on a run or a bike ride before the sun is up or after it has gone down is a good way to beat the heat, but it also means drivers are less likely to see you. Help your friend stay safe by getting them some reflective fitness clothing. Try looking for reflective vests, shirts or armbands designed specifically as athletic wear, so they will for sure be comfortable.
A lot of fitness fanatics also pay a lot of attention to the types of nutrients they are eating, so why not help them get those vitamins down with a high-powered juicer. These juicers are built to turn even the toughest fruits and vegetables into a smooth power drink. Throw in a good amount of recipes with the gift, and you are good to go.
4. Running Shoes
Yes, you are still using the same running shoes you had in college, but for those who run frequently and consistently, shoes tend to wear out every couple of months. Thus a new pair of high quality running shoes is always appreciated. Just be sure to include a receipt in case you happen to get the size or color choice wrong.
5. Fitness Video Games
Sometimes even the fitness buffs need a change from the gym or outdoor routine. For those days, having a fitness video game on hand can come in handy. Look for games that require a good amount of effort and offer several options in the types of exercise and length of the work out, as well as personalized fitness tracking options.
