9 Perfect Health and Fitness Gifts for Your Holiday Wishlist
1) S’well Water Bottle — $25 & up
S’well water bottles aren’t anything particularly new or special anymore. There are plenty of water bottles on the market now that have a design that cleverly keeps liquids marvelously hot or cold through wonderfully engineered stainless steel. That said, it doesn’t get much more stylish than S’well with its wide array of stunning colors and patterns ranging from nature-inspired woodgrains and florals to mesmerizing metallic galaxy finishes and ombre effects.
These bottles are handy not only for hydrating at the gym but for taking on the road and to the office. They’re a gift that holds appeal for just about everyone, depending on the pattern: whether it’s a rugged outdoorsman or a teenage girl.
2) BlenderBottle SportMixer Tritan Grip Shaker Bottle — $12.99 (Prime)
Because protein shakes aren’t always the best idea for the blender, the BlenderBottle is your best alternative. With a whisk ball inside, this shaker bottle is designed to cut through your protein powders and nut butters to mix shakes with the thickest of ingredients in the perfect single serving. Minimal mess, ready-to-go.
3) Original SpiraLife Spiralizer Vegetable Slice — $13.97
One of the healthiest decisions we can make for our waistlines is to cut down on the carbs. One of the easiest things to replace those carbs with is some spiralized vegetables! Grab some zucchini and this handy spiralizer and you’ll be making stir fry and zoodles in no time. It makes crafting healthy alternatives that much easier.
4) Contigo AUTOSEAL Kangaroo Water Bottle — $11.04
Our last water bottle of the list has been around for awhile, but I find it a particularly intriguing option for runners. The Kangaroo water bottle has a built in compartment that can hold money, ID, a card, and even a key. It’s such a pain to have to carry keys or a wallet when on a run, so the idea of being able to condense those items into something useful like a water bottle is genius!
5) Body Back Buddy — $29.95 (Prime)
The Body Back Buddy is a lifesaver for relieving pain and pressure in your muscles when dealing with soreness or muscle tension. Designed to perfectly hit your pressure points, the Back Buddy is meant to relieve muscle spasms, knots, and trigger points. If you’ve ever had a sore back, you know how miserable it can be. This simple device can do more good than an expensive electronic back massager can do for a fraction of the cost.
6) Soft Density Foam Roller — $49.95 (Prime)
Another tool that can greatly ease back pain, foam rollers also help ease sore muscles, knots and trigger points. They’re great for stretching before exercise and even for certain types of exercises, particularly yoga and pilates.
7) Greater Goods Nourish Digital Kitchen Food Scale — $39.99 (Prime)
If you’re into counting calories, macros, or nutrition in any way, this scale is going to catch your attention. Rather than simply weighing food in grams like most kitchen scales, this scale by Greater Goods, with the help of an app, actually measures the calories, macros, and nutritional breakdown of the food you weigh. There are over 2,000 foods already programmed and it has the ability to add custom foods.
8) Klean Kanteen Insulated Food Canister Set — $64.90
If you’re a fan of camping or even just need fuel on-the-go, you can’t get much better than Klean Kanteen. These insulated stainless steel canisters can keep food hot for up to 8 hours and cold for up to 22. Their odor and stain resistant, air-tight, leakproof, and shatterproof. When you’re in need of food on-the-go, this is the highest quality container you can ask for.
9) A Fitbit — $50 & Up
You’d be hard pressed to find someone who wouldn’t be excited to get a Fitbit. They’re just cool. Even if you’re not a fitness junkie, there’s something fun about seeing your steps add up, competing for the most steps with friends and family, or just trying to top your record day after day. A Fitbit is a great gift at just about any age—whether it’s the lower end model or a high-end model for more serious athletes who want all the bells and whistles.
