Buying gifts can be difficult regardless of how well you know the person you are buying the gift for. In the worse case, that person doesn’t have any special passion or interest. In the better case, she is enthusiastic about something. However, the latter option has its flaws too, since you have to be well-familiarized with the object of his/her interest.
If you have a friend who is crazy about working out, jogging and anything fitness-related, here are a few ideas that will knock the sports socks off him/her.
The very foundation of fitness lies in motivation. Maybe you find it annoying when fitness-geeks post motivational quotes on Facebook, but it is something that means a lot to them. The best way to show it and celebrate it together is by buying them a framed motivational poster for them to hang it on their real wall, instead of the Facebook wall.
Cold roller ball
Exercising is difficult, and although it is good for muscles and posture, it can often put a lot of strain on one’s legs and backs. Any fitness enthusiast would be thrilled with the gift of a cold roller ball, which can be used, not only for massage but also for ice therapy which can be really helpful for aching muscles. In fact, almost any type of DIY massager which can provide relief for muscles would be a great gift.
A unique gym tee
“Grammar is important, but big muscles are more importanter” – does your fitness buddy look like she would enjoy a gym T-shirt with such a funny print? Honestly, who wouldn’t? Of course, if you don’t want for the print to be funny, it doesn’t have to be. It can carry the same motivational quote as the poster we’ve mentioned. You can even personalize the print and write some private joke, only the two of you get.
Music makes everything easier, from lifting to jogging, but it can get complicated if the headphones don’t have a noise cancellation feature or if they keep on falling off. Fortunately, there are many quality headphones in Australia, alone, and let alone around the world, so you’ll have no problems in finding the right ones. The ideal fitness headphones should sound fantastic, have a secure fit, be comfortable, and isolate noise well. Some additional features that should encourage you to buy headphones are minimal-microphones and sweat resistance.
Fashion-meets-function gym bag
Gym bags serve a purpose, but that doesn’t mean they can’t look fashionable. Enable your friend to go to the gym with style by getting her a leather gym bag or one with a fab print. Just make sure the bag is also functional. It should have enough compartments to put clothes, sneakers and a water bottle.
A special water bottle
Speaking of water bottles, there are many fantastically designed water bottles on the market, ranging from bright monochromatic to motivational and even artistic. Find the one with the design you think your friend would like the most, just make sure it is easy to hold.
Regardless of which sport is your friend’s favorite, everyone can enjoy at least a couple of minutes of yoga a day. It’s healthy, it’s refreshing and it is de-stressing. And it is much easier to practice yoga at home when you have your very own yoga mat. You can even make a yoga package for beginners by including a DVD with instructions.
With this gift-giving guide, you will never have to face a disappointed look from a fitness enthusiast when you give her book for a 100th time. Each of these gifts is a fantastic and fail-proof choice.
