Gifts for the Fitness Lover


This month I will be blogging about different gift ideas.  I will blog about gifts for Men, Women, Teens, Teachers, Hostess gifts…and today…the Fitness Lover!  I’ve chosen to blog about Fitness gifts, because of my current obsession with Triscuits.  More specifically the Rosemary/Olive oil variety.  Pair them with a bit of butter… and you’ll also be thinking about fitness gifts.  Or pants with elastic waist bands.


Here’s some sage advice.  Do not, never, ever, ever buy someone a scale.  Unless they actually give you the link to the actual scale they want.  I think that’s a horrible gift, btw.  🙂


More on these gifts at


Love, love, love the Wash Me bag. – $14.


A blender certainly is not s super fun gift, but we make smoothies almost every day and a good blender makes this so much easier!  I also love the happy plugs!



Fitbit Alta!  You can get this for $129 or $149 at Nordstrom.  More on this one, later.



The Rubz ball is a life saver for sore feet. You can get them on Amazon for about $5.50. Happy feet. 🙂


These are some of my personal favorites:

S’Well Water Bottle – you can get these in 9 oz, 17 oz or 25 oz bottles.  Fun fact:  The 25 oz bottle holds an entire bottle of wine!  Cheers!


Fitbit – The Fitbit Alta is the new Fitbit.  Looks good enough you don’t need a fancy, schmany cover or bracelet.  I’ve been wearing my original Fitbit Flex since 2013.  Thinking of upgrading to this one, myself.



Massage – who wouldn’t love a Massage gift card?  Massage envy, Spa Finder or a local spa are good bets.  



Ear buds – Bose in-ear – I received these as a gift and use them every. single. day.  They have great sound and don’t hurt my ears.  I use them while walking Maxie, or running on the treadmill or elliptical.  It’s all about the music!


Ear Warmer ear phones – these are a must if you are outdoors and like to listen to your music and in a cold climate.  Speaking of cold climates, it’s been about 20 degrees here in Chicago.  Ugh.  Anywho, you can find these at Target, Brookstone or Amazon, to name a few.


When in doubt… a Gift Card works.  Lululemon or Althea would be great and appreciated.


Tried and True Books – my personal favorite would be a book or two.

Mer and I have started binge-watching Gilmore Girls!  I love, love, love it!!  Perfect mother-daughter TV.  Paired with a glass (or two) of wine and it’s a perfect night!


Song of the Day:  There she goes again, by Sixpense none the richer

There she goes
There she goes again
She calls my name,
Pulls my train
No one else could heal my pain
And I just can’t contain
This feeling that remains



How’s this for the cutest little snow dog?  Looking out a a world around her.  A world in which she cannot run, unless attached to a leash.


It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
