The Holiday season is here – Still looking for the perfect gift for the fitness enthusiast on your list? Lots of fun shopping awaits! Gift-giving isn't just about showing affection for your loved ones, but also about sharing joy, practicing gratitude, and warming the heart of the gift-receiver by choosing something special. The right gift shows how well you know a person, and can often be quite the challenge to find... That's why we're here to help. 

Here's a list of top 5 gifts that are sure to bring a smile to any health and wellness lover:


Technology and Comfort Combined

For passionate runners and lovers of the outdoors, not even the coldest weather will stop them from breaking a sweat and getting a workout in. Crisp air and snow would make most people curl under a blanket, but for a fitness enthusiast it's a lovely invitation to enjoy the winter weather with a 10K run. That's why the OMbra makes a perfect gift! The OMbox device attached to the bra streams real-time data via bluetooth to your phone on distance, cadence, pace, heart-rate, and calories. It’s also built with a comfortable, breathable fabric and adjustable straps and cups, that ensures it’s a perfect fit for the runner in your life.


Pampering Products for On-The-Go

Cosmetics always make a great gift! Just make sure the choice you make fits into the overall lifestyle of the receiver. Usually, fitness and wellness enthusiasts are constantly on the run and they want their beauty routines to be as efficient as possible. This means they love all-in-one products that provide nourishing care and leave them with fresh looks. Think about getting a multipurpose cleanser or a toner. Consider Thalgo products and choose the Eveil A La Mer Beautifying Tonic Lotion or pick one of the lovely body packs (e.g. Thalgo No.10 Atlantic Spa Ritual Body Pack) containing several products such as body scrub and milk, and the massage oil. It’s perfect for a spa-like experience at home, so your wellness-driven friend will certainly love it.


Fashionable Leggings to Wear Everywhere

Gone are the days when sportswear was about dull gray colors and limited cuts and patterns. To surprise your girlfriend, pick a pair of eye-catching leggings she can wear outside of the gym too! Zara Terez Crystal Skull Leggings are unusual, edgy, and can easily be incorporated into an evening outfit with a pair of ankle boots and a tunic. Most importantly, the technology of the fabric ensures comfort during exercise as it sweat-wicking.


A Gift that Ensures they Get their Oms

If you have friends that are members of the wide yoga community (or they want to become one) – what better gift you can surprise them with than a full yoga membership? A yoga membership implies the greatest gift of them all: health and well-being. There's usually great deals around the holiday season. You can even sign up yourself too and turn yoga class into quality time together. It could be a healthy New Year’s resolution – You’ll be rolling up your mat and heading to the nearest yoga center in no time! 


A Piece of Nature at Home – Himalayan Salt Lamp  

The Himalayan salt lamp not only provides the soft and soothing illumination but it also has health-boosting properties: it freshens and cleans the air and neutralizes asthma and allergy triggers through the release of negative ions in the air. All in all – it is a lovely part of the home décor that is also therapeutic. Your wellness friend will surely appreciate it, especially giving the fact that the subtle lighting creates a sleep-friendly atmosphere that boosts melatonin production. There are many different designs to choose from, so keep in mind your friend’s taste and interior.

There are many gift possibilities for a fitness and wellness enthusiast. We hope that these five ideas inspired you!
