As Christmas fast approaches and the festivities are fully beginning to get under way, it equally means one thing: The countdown has begun for your gift giving mission. For those of us that are perhaps stuck for ideas for those fitness fanatics among our friendship groups, here is the perfect round-up of present ideas to make sure you’re on everyone’s good list this year…
A top-notch yoga and exercise mat
The selection of fabulous yoga mats out there is endless, so let’s highlight some of the top picks, kicking it off with the fabulous Yogi Bare. With performance at the forefront of design and specialised grip, these mats are the perfect pick for an extra special Christmas gift and are even eco-friendly for those who are perhaps trying to be a bit more sustainable in their consumption! Or, if you’re really looking to splash the cash on someone special this year, why not treat them to one of the incredible Olie yoga mats. These vegan mats combine incredible grip and beautiful designs that will most definitely bring a smile to your yogi pals’ face…
How about some snazzy new gear?!
We all know the importance of feeling good in our workout gear, so how about gifting this instant confidence boost as a Christmas pressie? Gym wear is by far in scarcity at the moment so picking the best may be a bit of a challenge, but I’ve got you covered with some top recommendations. Of course, there had to be some Gym Shark in there and make sure to have a look at their ‘New In’ section to discover their latest collaboration range with fitness queen Whitney Simmons; Trust me when I say this gear will have you feeling like an absolute goddess, ultra-flattering and an amazing colour range.
And we cannot forget about the incredible new market disrupter T/ALA, founded by the one and only Grace Beverley (formerly known as ‘GraceFit’). The sustainable yet surprisingly affordable brand offers some really lovely styles that will suit any body shape and watch out for those ‘Sustaina-sale’s’ that keep cropping up to really nab a fabulous bargain.
Help them out with the home workout hype…
As home workouts have become the new norm, why not treat your friend/ boyfriend/ family to some new equipment to really help take it to the next level?! By no means does this require breaking the bank with a whole home gym kit out, as it can be something simple that will really pay off as a diverse bit of equipment for multiple uses. Taking it back to the wonder woman that is Grace Beverley, why not check out her other e-commerce success, Shreddy.com?! Their kit page is regularly restocked and offers a range of equipment, from resistance bands (short and long) to dumbbells and kettlebells that won’t break the bank – and they look pretty groovy too.
If you’re after equipment for the slightly more hard-core fitness fanatic among your social circle, Eleiko have been a game changer in the world of weightlifting, offering a wide range of strength equipment ready for home delivery. From bars and platforms to benches and racks, Eleiko is the go-to for your top-notch home gym set up. Albeit, they are however on the expensive side so be prepared when you visit their site!

One of the best, more light-hearted gifts for any gym lover is a protein pick and mix; It may not sound the most appealing to those who aren’t on the fitness bunny hype, but this really is an all-round winner for a Christmas pressie. And you’re in luck because there actually is an incredible site set and ready to go for this very gift idea called (yep, you guessed it) ‘Protein Pick & Mix.co.uk’! Stocking all the big brands from Grenade to Quest nutrition, there is an incredible product selection to choose from.
If sweet protein treats aren’t quite the way you were looking to go, why not go for a more practical gift and visit the My Protein website to pick up one of their nutrition bundles?! It’s a great option for those that are keen on their nutrition and perhaps looking to test out some new products.
Hopefully this gives you a little inspiration for those fitness fanatics this festive season!
