For fitness junkies, there's nothing better than working out and getting others on board. (We all have that one friend who tries to convince us to run marathons, or the sibling we do Pilates classes with.) When it comes to buying gifts for said fitness junkie, you want the very best for them. You want to keep in mind their active lifestyle, commitment to health, and what they actually need—from a cute sports bra and workout set to an at-home massager they can use post-workout (or just whenever). Luckily for you, I've searched high and low for the best fitness gift ideas, ranging from the super luxe (think: a sauna blanket) to the ultra affordable (like an all-natural deodorant) that make perfect stocking stuffers. Get ready to make her workouts immensely better with any of these products.
A Face Mask
Whether you've taken to running outdoors or going back to the gym, you'll want a face mask that allows you to do your usual activities without restricting air flow. This mask features a water-resistant exterior, breathable spacer fabric, and a polyurethane open-cell foam that lets air through.
A Pair of Wireless Headphones
Working out without your headphone wires getting tangled up in your clothes, hands, etc. is a game changer. Make their workouts more enjoyable by gifting them the latest AirPods.
The perfect space-saving kettlebell for those living in small spaces. This kettlebell can adjusted from 5 to 8 to 9 to 12 pounds and has an ergonomically designed handle. For the super dedicated fitness gurus, you can even bring this with you on your week-long getaways.
A Tennis Jacket
Tennis enthusiasts love the game as much as they love to dress up for the actual match. Gift them this tech knit jacket that works as a pre-game layer or post-game layer. The jacket is wrinkle-resistant and is embroidered with a nice racquet insignia.
A Body Massager
Contrary to the super expensive body massagers out there, this one will get the job done for under $100. It's cordless, has adjustable speeds, comes with four different massage heads, and is not only good for post-workout soreness, but also for general WFH fatigue when you've been hunching over your laptop the entire day.
A Beach Yoga Mat
Thinking about doing yoga on the beach? You'll need this pretty suede mat to keep yourself from slipping and sliding as you attempt your best chaturanga.
A Pair of Boxing Gloves
Whether she boxes occasionally or is thinking about getting into it, she'll need proper gloves to protect her hands. This Everlast option comes in either black/white or pink/white depending on her tastes.
A Collapsible Water Bottle
Every fitness person needs to stay hydrated no matter what workout they're doing, and Que's collapsible bottles make drinking water easier. They're not only space savers, look how small they fold down!, but once empty, they also feel much lighter to carry around than some other options out there.
A Cute Workout Bralette
She'll always need a cute workout bralette and Lively specializes in comfy, wearable pieces like this option. She'll even find herself wearing it as a casual undergarment piece on her rest days.
A WFH Workout Set
This beginning workout set from P.volve has everything you need to get toned and fit. From the weights to the iconic P.volve patented p.ball, this set will banish away all your excuses for not having the proper equipment at home.
A Cold Massage Roller
Instead of having ice packs drip water all over you, and the floors, just massage yourself with this cold roller. It can relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and improve circulation and mobility.
An Eco-Conscious Deodorant
No workout is complete without a quick swipe of deodorant. Each & Every products are great for those who have sensitive skin and are eco-conscious. The product contains no aluminum, parabens, synthetic fragrance, baking soda or gluten, and is both cruelty free and vegan. On top of that, the packaging is made from sugar cane and they have an easy recycling program for your empties.
An Athleisure Jacket
This Alo Yoga jacket comes in a bright new color and looks great when paired with leggings, biker shorts, or jeans for an athleisure fall/winter look. The outerwear has hidden zipper pockets for functionality and features an adjustable cinched waist.
Even if you're not the star player in your recreational soccer team, these rainbow-colored cleats will still make you stand out on the field. The footwear provides both traction on natural and artificial grass while the comfortable lining feels like a second skin.
A Laidback Hoodie
Workout clothes with motivating fitness phrases are always a hit, like this "JST LFT" hoodie. Consider this a reminder to get your lifts in or proclaim your love for lifting.
Keep your multivitamins in this chic rattan pill case, which will make you feel more organized too. From the outside, it looks almost like a jewelry pouch because the plastic part is hidden from view.
An Inflatable Kayak Set
For aquatic sports fans and those who just like to be near a body of water, this inflatable kayak set is all they need to feel at peace again. The kayak comes with oars already, so grab your favorite person and spend the day out on a lake, or just paddle around solo.
A Two-Piece Workout Set
A cute workout set will serve as the perfect motivator for her to make it to that circuit class or complete that 30-minute yoga routine at home. It helps that this two-piece is also comfortable, so you can lounge around it post-workout too.
A Resistance Rope
Build muscles and tone up with this resistance rope from Venus Williams' fitness line. This is one of the brand's top-selling accessories, so it's best to order now before it sells out.
A Colorful Sports Bra
This Black-owned fitness brand offers athleisure apparel for the "socially conscious women and working mothers," especially those who are often underrepresented in the traditional mass market retailers. Add a sports bra, or two, like this one to cart to support the small business and show off your colorful new workout gear.
A Speed Jumpsuit
This speed rope is not only designed to spin fast, but also last a long time. It's great for at-home workouts or when you're traveling since it's so portable. One thing to note is that this rope can't be used on cement or asphalt as the rough surface will destroy the coating on the cable.
A Yoga Mat
A good yoga mat makes a huge difference in how often you want to work out, especially when you don't have to worry about slipping and sliding everywhere. Manduka makes some of the best non-toxic and highly cushioned mats around.
A Fanny Pack
This fanny pack can hold all her belongings when she goes on runs or be used as a sporty accessory for her weekend fitness outfits.
Up her foam rolling experience with this smart vibrating option that is Bluetooth enabled with five intensity settings. This allows for tailoring to warm up and recovery rolling experiences.
An Off-Duty Sneaker
When she's not working out, she'll want to wear the latest Nike Air Max 2090. The shoe has enviable underfoot cushioning technology and features transparent mesh for a contemporary look.
An Infrared Sauna Blanket
Why go to a sauna when you can just sweat it out at home? This blanket is a splurge (she's worth it!), but it can burn up to 600 calories and promises to detoxify the body of heavy metals, radiation, and environmental toxins. (Someone get this for me, please.)
