The festive season is just around the corner, and I’m sure everyone is slowly starting to prepare presents for their loved ones.
It’s my favorite season!
And especially this year, I feel like more and more people started getting into fitness and health, so this holiday season will likely have a tone on fitness-related gifts.
Now from my personal experience, buying gifts for fitness and health enthusiasts can be really tricky:
They usually know exactly what they want and in most cases, they already have it.
That’s why I teamed up with iHerb to give you a list of the best fitness gifts.
I selected 10 fitness inspired holiday gifts that are actually useful and will cheer up any fitness junkie this holiday season.
Let’s jump right into them!
I can’t stress enough about the importance of having everything you need in one place, along with the smoothest shopping experience and fast delivery.
And that for me is iHerb.
Carrying over 30,000 natural products, iHerb is my go-to one-stop-shop for fitness and nutrition supplements.
iHerb ships to over 180 countries, from climate-controlled distribution centers to ensure the quality of their products.
Plus they are super fast, which is super important.
I live in Europe and I can’t even describe how shipping can get lingered for weeks, especially during the holiday season.
However, that’s not the case with iHerb.
I always get my orders fast and on time, usually around 3-5 days via DHL.
Also, iHerb offers customer service 24 hours a day / 7 days a week in 10 different languages.
And that’s why I picked out this holiday season gifts from iHerb.
I found everything I needed, so let’s head on to them!
My Holiday Gift Guide
10 Fitness Inspired Holiday Gifts
This year I decided to go more practical with my holiday gifts.
I’m done with leggings that don’t fit, and sports bras that looked good online, but in reality are awfully uncomfortable and will eventually end up at the end of the closet.
That’s why this year we are being smart with our presents.
Without further ado, let’s jump right into them!
#1: Protein Powder
There is not a fitness junkie that won’t scream for protein!
We are not only having it as a shake, but we add it to our smoothies, we make pancakes, cookies, and bars out of it.
That’s why the very first gift on my list is the Now Foods, Sports, Pea Protein in Vanilla Toffee flavor.
I’ll always go for plant-based proteins over whey protein, simply because I believe they are a healthier option.
And this pea protein is not only lower in calories and fats compared to animal proteins, but higher in fiber and essential nutrients too.
The vanilla toffee tastes amazing and gives those holiday vibes.
#2: Protein Shaker
You can never have too many protein shaker bottles.
And the one I selected in my gift list is something different.
This is not your regular protein shaker by any means!
Not only that it looks amazing, but this 20 oz shaker bottle is actually stacked on top of a unit for storing the powder or nutritional supplements.
Isn’t it amazing?! I just love it!
#3: Matcha Tea
Trust me, this is the equivalent of fine wine for fit people.
Matcha tea has been so popular lately, and there’s a good reason why.
*Spoiler alert: it’s not just because of the color.
Beyond the energy boost, there are loads of health benefits including increased metabolism, weight loss, getting an energy boost without the crash, antioxidants to prevent aging, cancer and other chronic diseases, and aids the body in the detoxification process.
That’s why so many fit girls started switching up the afternoon coffee with matcha late.
And since I’m all about providing healthier alternatives, my gift #3 is the one and only California Gold Nutrition, Superfoods, Matcha Green Tea Powder.
Cultivated in Prime Tea Region Aichi, Japan, this premium whole leaf Matcha is a high-quality product that would make anyone who is into nutrition and fitness really happy.
Pair it with a cute cup and it will make the perfect holiday gift!
#4: Vegan Protein Bars
I remember when I was a little girl, the holiday season was all about chocolates and treats.
And it still is in my heart, however, for the past years, it’s been a complete nightmare.
Do you know how hard it is to find quality protein bars that are suitable for vegans, plus taste amazing?
Nearly impossible. But I got you!
Dr. Murray’s, Superfoods Protein Bars, Vegan Protein Combo Pack, will be an amazing gift for any vegan into fitness.
They taste like a pure holiday, plus are packed with so many nutrients.
I got them in a variety pack, but you can also pick out your favorite flavors only.
#5: ECO Bag
My friends are just obsessed with knitted shopping bags.
They are so trendy right now and there’s a good reason why – they look so good, plus they are eco-friendly.
That’s why ECOBAGS, Classic String, Shopping Bag, Milano Natural is the perfect holiday gift, and a budget-friendly one.
Unlike other knitted bags, this one has a wide shoulder strap, thanks to which it is more convenient to carry it.
Plus, anything you put inside will look cute.
I filled it out with fruits and veggies for one of my workout besties, which brings me to the next one…
#6: Veggie Brush
I’ve had so many veggie brushes throughout the years, and they are so practical and useful for anyone that likes to cook healthy foods.
It’s mostly used for fruits and veggies to help scour off the dirt out of their skins.
And this Full Circle, The Ring, Veggie Brush is a must-have tool for anyone.
Not only you can rarely find a veggie brush that looks stylish and cute, but also the materials it’s made of are safe, non-toxic, and eco-friendly.
A great addition to the eco bag, filled with fruits and veggies.
#7: Nut Butter
Another thing you have to know about health and fitness junkies is their addiction to nut butter.
Peanut butter is the glue that holds my life together.
And honestly, I have never met a fit girl that doesn’t have a thing for nut butter.
We love spreading it to toasts, fruits, and pancakes, and even add it to protein shakes and smoothies.
However, they can be a bit pricy, especially high-quality and premium ones.
That’s why I decided to add my new favorite Artisana, Organics, Raw Pecan Butter to my holiday gift list.
I just know what makes us fitness junkies happy, and this butter is one of those things.
Made out of hearty raw organic pecans and premium organic cashews, this butter provides an intense, naturally sweet flavor I could die for.
Pure magic in a jar!
#8: Portable Snack Containers
One of the most important habits you can develop when trying to stay healthy and fit is learning how to snack right.
And always having a healthy snack on hand is what makes snacking a healthy habit in the first place.
That’s why this Portable Stackable Containers, Teal, Starter 4 Pack is a true essential, that anyone into fitness got to have.
I’ve owned so many snack containers in my life, but this one is something else.
It has a secured seal for worry-free portability, it’s made out of durable Eastman Tritan material which resists stains and odors, has multiple sizes, and (wait for it) it fits in the Blender Bottle.
Just how amazing is that?!
And not only snacks, but you can store protein powders and supplements inside.
This would make the perfect gift for anyone who tries to make snacking a healthy habit.
#9: Body Butter
I think I can safely say that most fitness junkies care about their health and body image so much, but often forget about the importance of skincare.
Well, what can I say, guilty as charged!
On a busy day, making that extra time to show up on the training session usually means that we don’t have the time to even take a shower afterward, not to mention taking that extra step to treat the skin we live in.
And that’s exactly why Petal Fresh, Pure, Restoring Body Butter, Honey & Coconut Oil is on my holiday fitness gifts list.
My skin hasn’t been softer and smoother, plus the coconut makes you smell like cookies all day long.
Being color, paraben, sulfate, phthalate, and glycol free, this product is actually healthy for your skin.
Not to mention the fact that it’s cruelty-free and vegan, which again, brings me to the last one…
#10: Avocado Oil
Now let me tell you another thing about fit girls:
Anything made out of coconut oil, kale, or avocados is healthy and we will use it.
And this Sports Research, Pure Avocado Multi-Purpose Oil is highly versatile and moisturizing.
It helps nourish dry, damaged skin, leaving it feeling silky smooth.
This multi-purpose oil is ideal for people with extremely dry skin that need extra hydration, and are too lazy to develop a skincare or haircare routine.
Yup, that’s us! Add to cart!
And encouraging fit girls to take care of their skin as much as they care for their health and body, is priceless.
