From High-Tech Scales to … Socks? Yep, and Lots More
With New Year's resolutions around the corner, fitness-related gifts are popular! So, chances are good that you have some folks on your guest list who work out regularly (or want to start). These 10 ideas will give you a great start!
Arboleaf Body Composition Smart Scale. Keeping track of your weight can be an easy, useful tool to manage your bodyweight and helping to keep you informed.
Xero shoes. Footwear is important for anyone who exercises, so just take this as a starting point. But we are big fans of "minimalist" shoes. They have wider toe boxes and zero drop heels to help mimic being barefoot. This allows for more natural and healthful movement. The Prio is a great model to start with.
Bombas socks. This company found that socks are the No. 1 requested item at homeless shelters. So it donates a pair for every pair sold. That means you can feel good about these purchases, and they’ve put them in handy men’s and women’s gift bags. Very cool.
Apple Watch Series 7. For the device lover on your list, you can’t beat the latest Apple Watch, the 7. It has the most advanced health and wellness features yet, including the Blood Oxygen app and sensor and the ECG app. Go cheaper with a different brand – any good fitness tracker helps motivate us to move! From $399.
Ear pods. Adding a pair of good ear pods makes working out even better. You can listen to music, podcasts, books… all to pass the time while doing cardio or lifting weights. We are brand agnostic, but you can’t go wrong with the Apple AirPods. Save a few bucks with the Generation 2.
Audiobooks. Continuing on the ‘listening while exercising’ theme, this is a great way to keep up on reading while exercising. At Audible.com, the first one’s free, and then a monthly fee of $14.95 includes one title.
Meal delivery. Send packages of healthy, delicious foods to your loved one. You can choose from a range of diets. A few to consider: Hello Fresh, Sun Basket, and Purple Carrot.
Training sessions. Give the gift of a new experience or expert coaching. Talk to us about options here or locally that would be fun and helpful, especially since so many of us have been inside too much these last two years.
A Theragun. Post-exercise recovery is becoming more prominent, and these hand-held massage devices are among the most popular forms. They offer deeper muscle treatment to soothe chronic and acute pain, release tension and soreness, and improve circulation, flexibility and sleep. Check the website for models and pricing.
Your time. As ever, the best gift is your time. Take your friend or family member for a walk, or just enjoy a nice chat. Even better – bring them in here and let us show how we can make the new year their best yet.
Happy shopping – and happy holidays! We’re here to help if you need more ideas.
