Hello & Happy Sunday! How’s your weekend been so far? I hope it’s been amazing for you! I’ve been over here knocking things off my to-do list, especially today and it feels pretty awesome! I’m hoping to make December a pretty productive month, so I’m loving the momentum already for only 3 days in! One thing I’ve noticed too so far from the start of this month is the hustle & bustle out and around town with all the Christmas shopping going on! So, today I thought would be the perfect day to share my Christmas Gift Guide for the all of the special runners & yogis in your life! Maybe you’re not a runner or yogi yourself and are unsure of where to even start, well I’ve got you covered from gifts to stocking stuffers! If you were reading along this time last year on the blog, you can also find my guide for 2016 with plenty of good gift ideas there too! I must admit this year’s list definitely tops last years ideas. As I was making this list this time around, I caught myself eyeing every single last one of these products for myself! HA! It’s a pretty good list of gift ideas if I do say so myself! 😉 It’s also one of my most favorite posts to put together because it’s just so much fun giving meaningful gifts that are sure to bring a smile to your favorite yogi’s or runners on your list.
So, want to jump right in? Let’s do it!
I’m all about gifts with meaning behind them and this Love Your Melon Beanie is super special! The purpose behind it is heart warming to say the least! For every hat that is sold, the company donates a warm beanie to a child going through pediatric cancer. Plus, is it not the cutest thing ever?
If the runner in your life knows anything important about running, it’s recovery! Post run or race they’ll definitely be looking for ALL the ways to recover those worn out legs. Insert: Compression socks or sleeves! These babies are no joke and help increase the blood flow to their tired legs to get them recovered and feeling like new in no time! I’ve even worn mine to sleep post race or even under dress pants for work! That’s our little secret though! 😉 Also, not to mention all of the cute prints and colors they come in, you’re sure to find one to fit your runner’s personality perfectly!
Now these guys are definitely on my wish list this year! Seriously, non-slip running sunglasses are THE perfect gift for the fit person in your life! They can even wear them post-workout to around town running errands! Oh, and you want to know the best part? They’re only $25.00! Score!
I’ve never met a water bottle that I’ve loved SO much until I got my Healthy Human water bottle a few months ago! It is THE best when it comes to keeping your drinks hot or cold for hours on end! Cold drinks STAY cold for up to 24 hours and hot drinks stay hot for up to 12 and piping hot for 6! What more could you need? Did I mention they come in super cute colors too? Because–they do with PLENTY of options to choose from. I’m in love, and I know the fitness lover in your life will be too! **BONUS: Use my code JUSTME10 when you shop their bottles on Amazon for 10% off your purchase! Woo hoo!
Graphic tees, tanks and sweat shirts couldn’t be more popular lately, but these are my favorite! The sayings they have are so cutesy and couldn’t fit a runner any better! They have so many different options too and all for really great prices! They even have the cutest (and funniest) coffee mugs, which we all know no one can deny! Check them out ASAP!
It’s probably impossible for me to express my love enough in words for how much I adore these headbands. The struggle is seriously real when it comes to finding headbands that stay put when you’re sweating like a crazy person in your workout! But, it doesn’t hurt when they’re incredibly adorable AND insanely comfortable at the same time. These headbands are only $12.00 but feel like a million bucks! If I could have every single print in these, I would. That’s how much I love them! If you buy these for the fitness fanatic in your life, they’ll probably love you forever! I can’t recommend them enough!
I’m willing to bet that the runner or yogi in your life is probably obsessed with planning out their workouts in some sort of a calendar or planner. Well, I came across one of the most of adorable planner’s I’ve ever seen so of course they had to make the gift guide this year! (And, hear me when I say, I’m quite the planner nerd when it comes to these things! I’ve very picky about them!) These super cute and functional planners will make for the best gift because not only do they help you stay on track fitness wise, but also prayer wise! You can keep notes in these planners for your next workout as well as your favorite bible verse of the week! P-E-R-F-E-C-T Gift!
Oh boy! This may top the list in my favorite gift recommendations because it’s basically AMAZING in every way! Now, be warned this is NOT the cheapest item on the list by far–but it is the type of gift that will make the runner on your list have automatic heart palpitations due to pure excitement! As soon as they recover, they’ll be thanking you every day of the year for the next 50 years. The Garmin Forerunner watch is the watch of all running watches and keeps track of every tiny detail they’ll need to summarize each and every workout. The GPS tracker is beyond the best and it even keeps track of their heart rate! It’s also one of those gifts that’s definitely a splurge that they won’t necessarily want to spend on themselves any other time of the year. So, for you to do it for them will make their whole year! 🙂
These little cheerleader wraps are so special and had to make my list this year because it’s true what this brand says–“everyone needs their own cheerleader!” You can customize these wraps or shop their popular sayings to share with anyone special on your list this year to wear all year round. They are super soft and comfortable too which is a huge bonus so you don’t even realize you’re wearing it most of the time! Also, the price is amazing as they’re all mostly under $20.00! They really are the best when you need a little extra boost of encouragement and have your favorite saying written on your wrist to keep you going longer! Make sure to shop them this week too because they’re having some pretty amazing holiday deals!
Alright, to go along with the above mentioned recovery compression socks–this will also be on the fitness lover in your life’s list! Foam rolling is one of the best tools to recover tired legs and they’ll be happy to see one of these guys wrapped up under the tree this year! Also, just think of it this way–they’ll be able to stay injury-free more often because of you so what’s better than that? WIN-WIN, right?!
You’ve seen them on every runner’s car and you really can’t have enough in my opinion! Get the runner lover on your list this year a new running decal! They come in so many cute colors that you’ll be sure to find a good one for them to throw into their stocking! It’s simple, low on the budget and a personalized gift which checks all the gift giving boxes to me! Head to your local running store to pick one up, or find one here!
I’m just going to say that I 100% know that your yogi will fall in love with this adorable yogi ornament when you put it in their stocking this year! It’s only $6.99 but is sure to bring a smile to their face and a little yogi-ness to their tree!
Really, is an explanation needed here? Not really, but I’m pretty sure I NEED to treat myself to this gift this year! The longer the run, the more wine earned, right? 😉 Stocking stuffer score!
Last but not least, I have to mention you can’t EVER go wrong with their favorite yoga studio/running store gift certificate. OR paying their way into an upcoming race on their list will surely make them smile this Christmas!
I hope that these gifts give you some inspiration for your shopping list this year! I had so much fun putting these together and I hope that it will take a little stress off of you when it comes to shopping for your favorite runner or yogi! Gift giving is SO much fun and is definitely my love language. There’s really nothing better than seeing the special people in your life light up with excitement when they open something they’re in need of or have been wanting for so long!
Good luck shopping and may these items ALL make it in your shopping cart really soon!
