I thought I would do a little fitness gift guide. I’m not huge Christmas fan but I do like gift giving. I can never afford to spend tonnes of money at Christmas so I always try and find gift that a person actually really wants or needs.
The items I’ve put on this list are items that I would love for Christmas either in my stocking or as a present.
1. Mpow Running Sport Sweatproof Armband + Key Holder – £6.99 (In Sale)
I am remember when I got my first arm band when I started running and OMG it saved my life and my phone screen. I like the Mpow band because it is has a special sweatproof material band and they have added a velcro piece that stops sweat and moisture getting inside the band to your moblie which is essential in the British weather. It has a clear front which I like as it means if your using it out and about you can see your mileage or speed without having to pull it out to check it. The armband is made for a number of phone models so it is defiantly a good option to have a look into.
2. Spikey Massage Ball – 7 cm = £3.84
I think a Massage ball is a good stocking filler for people who have the new year running bug. I was given one of these from a lady that does my massages and it has really changed my life. These balls are great if your prone to tight and uncomfortable muscle as these little things are great at releasing that tension. It is available in 2 sizes I prefer the 7 cm as it great for getting right into the muscle.
3. NYKKOLA Sports Cup Water Fruit Infuser Bottle = £3.99
I think this type of water bottle defiantly became a bigger thing in 2015. I’ve even asked for one of these for Christmas, the point of this bottle is that you are able to put in fruit, vegetable and natural ingredients and flavor you water without bits of ingredients being left in your drink. With this bottle you are able to take out the infuser and make it just a water bottle if you prefer it that way. I like putting lemon in my water and it also has helped me to drink more water. The price is pretty low so the quality wont be amazing but I think if you are just using it as a simple water bottle to take to work or to the gym I think it would be great choice. The bottle does come in a million and one colours which I love as it means you can get something slightly more different from your typical black and white water bottle.
4. MiraFit 15mm Extra Thick Excercise Floor Mat = £9.99
Mats are always a great present for any type of fitness freak like myself. The reason I chose the Mirafit out of every other brand out there is because it is extra think, I’ve had a number of mats in the past that are just to thin and move around a lot. This mat is 15mm thick meaning it will be comfortable on your feet and hands if you do yoga and won’t slide around when your jumping around doing burpees. It comes in 3 colours and comes with a strap (LIFE SAVER) which is great for taking to classes or even to take camping.
5. Fitness Mad Neo Dumbbell – £3.99 for a pair of 0.5kg
Dumbbell are dumbbells at the end of the day we all know what there for. The reason I’ve put this in my gift guide is for people that you know that might be scared a of weights. I have had many female friends in the past that hated the thought of lifting weights so I mentioned using really light weights just so they could get used to the thought of lifting weights now they lift weights like there is no tomorrow. If you know anyone that might have had an upper body injury this might be a good gift for them to get back into working out. Dumbbells are always a great present just make sure you don’t get a weight that is to heavy for the person your buying.
What do you guys think of this gift guide. Tell me below if you would buy any of these items for your family members or friends defiantly tell me below. Why not tell me other items that are under £10 which you think I should add to my list.
I hope you enjoy reading this post and it’s given you some last minute ideas.
Hope to see soon.
