It’s officially Thanksgiving week which means my favorite time of the year is kicking off! Christmas music is on the radio and holiday decorations are popping up everywhere. Everything about this season makes my heart feel warm and fuzzy. This week also marks the week when my annual gift guides start hitting the blog. I’m starting off with a fun roundup that is filled with gifts for health and fitness lovers. From practical to personal, this gift guide includes something for everyone.
The Whole30 Day by Day
Has the fitness lover in your life ever thrown around the idea of doing a Whole30? If so, this Whole30 Day by Day book would be great for them! This is the newest book released by the Whole30 and it hits shelves on December 5th, but you can pre-order it now! This book serves as a quick-reference guide for the program: keeping the rules handy, sharing helpful resources, and walking you through the important reintroduction phase, one day at a time. You can even make your own Whole30 bundle by also gifting them the The Whole30 Guide to Total Health and Food Freedom and The Whole30 Cookbook.
Jaybird X3 Sport Bluetooth Headset
These Jaybird Bluetooth Headphones are, hands down, the best headphones I’ve ever purchased. They’re small enough to throw in your purse when you’re on the go, but powerful enough to give off amazing sound quality. I love that they connect to my phone via bluetooth so I have the freedom to walk around the gym or office without my phone glued to my side. The bluetooth range is also stellar which means I can walk quite a ways from my phone and they stay connected. Initially I was concerned that they wouldn’t fit my small ear canals properly, but each pair comes with numerous different sizes and materials of fins so you can find the perfect fit!
Eat Pretty: Nutrition for Beauty, Inside and Out
Eat Pretty: Nutrition for Beauty, Inside and Out is the ultimate mind-body manual. Lately we’ve been hearing buzzwords like antioxidants, biotin and omega-3s. This book explains the importance of them and the benefits they give our bodies. Eat Pretty also explores stress management, hormonal balance and mindful living. This book is the ultimate guide for a full lifestyle makeover.
SlingShot Hip Circle
This SlingShot Hip Circle band is easily one of my favorite items in my gym bag. Bands like these are a great tool to add in during leg day. They help to activate and strengthen the hips and glutes as well as hip abductors and external rotators. Have trouble with your knees rotating in when you squat? This band teaches you to constantly push your knees out to ensure your form is correct during the movement. Bands like this can also be used for a great dynamic warmup. It has so many different uses that it’s a must have for anyone’s gym bag!
Yoga Tune Up Therapy Balls
I purchased my first set of Yoga Tune Up Therapy Balls shortly after my first half marathon. My body was craving some targeted stretching and de-knotting and these little therapy balls are perfect for that. They’re also small enough that you can throw them in your purse or into a small gym bag so you can use them when you’re on the go.
How awesome is this Fitdesk Calendar! I’ve been a long time fan of motivational desk calendars because it gives me a little something to look forward to each morning when I sit down at my desk to work. This calendar contains 365 days of inspiration and tips to live a fit life. A perfect gift for someone in your life that’s into fitness!
An Apple Watch is definitely a splurge present, but I guarantee the recipient will LOVE it. I got my first apple watch a few months ago and I wear it every single day. One of my favorite features is it’s built in activity and workout app. It tracks my steps, heart rate and workouts. It also gives me daily stand goals to make sure I’m not sedentary for too long. I also love that I have access to my email and text messages right from my wrist. You can also buy a number of different bands if you want to go for a sporty look one day or a more professional business look the next.
