I’ve become very into making lists of gift ideas. I keep one all year round and add to it whenever my friends and family mention something they want. You might have seen my last gift guide which had a load of ideas for the awesome feminist-y types on your to-buy-for list.
I am so excited about this gift guide, and I seriously had to rein myself in because I could’ve gone on forever.
Myself and Pete from Buddy Up Fitness have come up with 28 ideas (plus a few bonus ideas at the end) of what you can buy for the fitness enthusiast in your life.
(Btw….totally fine if that person is you!)
You might remember Pete from another post of mine he featured in (how to stay motivated for fitness during cold weather), which is worth checking out.
We think there’s something for everyone in this guide – I’m personally lusting after the gym shark leggings (8), and I really want to get my hands on the Adidas sweatshirt (19) because it looks cosy enough to get me to the gym, even when it’s freezing. Pete fancies himself a FitBit Ionic (7)….bit of a difference in price, mind! But what an awesome gift for someone!

I prefer over-ear headphones like these Skull Candy ones. The sound quality is wicked and they last forever.

29. Voucher for trainers
Pete says: for the serious runner you’re probably better off getting them a voucher to go and get their own. Most sports shops now have a treadmill in them so you can try running in the trainers before you buy
30. Magazine subscription
Pete says: it’s a little treat every month that you wouldn’t necessarily be able to justify buying for yourself
31. Audible gift memberships starting £23.99
I love the idea of listening to a book while I’m trudging up a hill on a treadmill
32. Sports massage voucher
Find a nice spa, or specialist sports therapist in your area and ask for a voucher for a sports, or deep tissue massage
We’ve tried to cover a bit of everything in here – from people who are crazy about running, to weight-lifters, budding yogis, and those who just like anything fitness-related.
