Christmas is coming and it’s the perfect time to start planning gifts!
Keep your eyes out on my blog for more gift guides coming your way to help you plan the perfect Christmas!
This edition is for the gym lover! I’ve been loving the gym lately and this guide will help you please that person in your life.
1. Gym clothes*
A gym lover can never have too many gym clothes, trust me!
Gymshark is a popular one among the community and these leggings* are my absolute favourite! They’re so breathable and flattering!
With gym clothes, I do recommend paying for better quality as it helps when sweating and with movement.
You really can’t go wrong with this option!
2. Protein powder*
This is definitely a good option for those more serious about the gym and gaining muscle.
Shakes can be drank during your workout or before and after and it’d really help that person out by topping it up!
My Protein a trusted brand for protein powder and this brownie flavoured shake* is a firm favourite in the gym community!
You can even get it for a newbie who you think will benefit from it or are contemplating it.
Personally, I’ve been going to the gym for 2/3 months now and that’s my next venture into the gym life!
3. Gym shoes*
The gym requires a good pair of shoes, especially for cardio exercises.
You may not think it’d make a big difference but trainers for the gym are lightweight and flexible meaning you can run faster or perfect your form.
A personal favourite of mine are Nike Revolution 5*. They’re highly rated on the Nike website and aren’t so pricey that they’d break the bank.
They’re also available in a range of colours to suit everyone’s preferable style! I would however recommend the black ones as they’re more versatile!
4. A water bottle*
An essential for every gym-goer!
Water is essential for everyday but even more so when exercising and you’re losing all that water!
I get through so much water at the gym so show that person that you care and want to keep them hydrated!
A good water bottle option is this purple one* from the brand Chilly’s. It’s a good option to get a friend as it’s not overly expensive.
One thing I do love about Chillys is that it keeps your water cold. This is so good as it’s so refreshing to have cold water when working out.
5. Resistance bands*
These are not essential but they add a lot to your average butt workout.
With a lot of uncertainty right now, these are a great gift as they can add an element of weight to your home workouts.
Hopefully gyms will be reopened in January but you can never be certain so these will be much appreciated.
Even if gyms are opened, these can still be used to intensify the workout that little more!
I recommend the fabric ones* over the rubber/latex ones as they’re less likely to roll up or snap.
6. A Fitbit*
This is good for everyone who not only goes to the gym but anyone who wants to be more active as a New Years resolution.
A Fitbit is a great gift because of how much it tracks and it counts every step unlike your phone, which only tracks the steps you take while holding your phone.
I’m bagging myself the Fitbit versa 2* in the Black Friday sales as I want to track calories I burn in my workouts. It also wouldn’t hurt to get a discount in the process too.
An essential for the gym! Headphones need to be wireless as the wires can get in the way and get disconnected.
Headphones are also preferred to earphones as the gym also plays music and headphones are just better at blocking out the gym music.
I don’t know about you, but I like to listen to my own music in the gym! If you’re thinking about purchasing some for the gym lover, I’d recommend Beats*. The quality is one of the best!
I got my boyfriend a pair for our anniversary and he absolutely loves them! He said they’re the best pair he’s ever had!
8. A blender*
Perfect for smoothies and pancake mixture! A blender would be greatly appreciated by the gym lover and the foodie in your life!
I see so many amazing pancake recipes and smoothie recipes all over Instagram and tiktok, and generally a blender is needed!
The best on the market is obviously a Nutribullet*! They now sell personal ones that means you can make enough for just one person.
One of the favourite features of this, is the price. Since it’s a personal one, it’s a little cheaper than the average nutribullet!m
I hope these ideas help you with gifts and you can please the gym lover in your life!
