10 Fit Girl Gifts We’re Loving This Holiday Season
Buying a gift for a fitness fanatic can feel like you're flexing a new shopping muscle, but we've done the heavy lifting for you. We found fit girl gifts that your squat-loving friend needs to keep her going.
Mat for Munchies
Did someone say pizza and Pilates? In that case, we're down for moving our muscles, and we know the fit girl in your life could always use a little mid-crunch motivation, and this accessory should do the trick. This blush-pink yoga mat will be the envy of all the yogis in the room, which is why it's one of our favorite gifts for the fit gal ($32; macys.com).
Wrap her up in something that'll get her fabulously fit. This ultra-slick Tory Burch wrap bracelet disguises her Fitbit beautifully, so she can look good and do good for her body at the same time. With luxurious, leather straps and 16-karat gold plating, she's going to get fit the only way any designer-obsessed gal should ($87, neimanmarcus.com).
The clock is ticking (literally). It’s time for her to become the next jump rope star with this elevated take on the traditional tool at the gym. This digital rope is everything a gym guru could ever want: it tracks her calorie count, jump total, and user weight on the LCD screen, so she can bring some tech in to her step ($27.99; amazon.com).
It seems that every girl, fitness-savvy or not, owns a pair of Adidas sneakers, but the latest snakeskin Gazelles will be the apple of her eye. She probably rarely swtiches out of her sneaks because she’s used to feeling comfy all the time, but she’ll be eager to slip on these style stars, which are decked out in black and embossed with snakeskin print and gold letters ($100; neimanmarcus.com).
Crop It Like It’s Hot
In case you haven’t heard, J. Crew just released its latest collaboration with New Balance, and we couldn’t run to the store fast enough to get our hands on the sporty-chic line. Now, your fit friend will think New Balance gear is more than just cool again—it’s the most-wanted fitness gear this holiday season with high-performing gear and even cooler looks, like this breathable, cut-out crop top ($55; jcrew.com).
Just because they lift heavy, doesn't mean they go light on the indulgences. This Chakra Box includes all natural, dairy-free dark chocolate truffles to satisfy her cravings because everyone needs truffle time, no matter how much of a health nut you claim to be. Chai, tangerine, green tea, and peppermint are just a few of the flavors that'll help her feel more balanced from head to toe ($30; chocoveda.com).
Drink Like a Diva
Quench her thirst and affinity for designer duds with this Kate Spade water bottle, which looks more like a piece of art to us than an ordinary tube that holds water. From a 5K run to a day at work, she’ll be eager to stay hydrated with an irresistably glittery water bottle ($30; bloomingdales.com).
With just a quick glance, you can tell this is no ordinary fitness tracker. This stunning gold and black watch features built-in fitness tracking through Google Fit, notifications for calls and alerts, an accelerometer, and gyroscope sensors. Help her manage her life with just the touch of a button and with knockout style ($350; macys.com).
Mini But Mighty
Ask anyone who hits the gym, and they’ll tell you their must-have recovery accessory is a foam roller to get out those knots. Unfortunately, they can be cumbersome and weren’t on-the-go friendly until this fun-size version came along. Measuring at 4-inches long, this little gizmo can be carried wherever you go ($24.99; tptherapy.com).
In case she needs a little reminder throughout the day, this covetable cuff will surely make her feel more zen. This hand-stamped bracelet is made of aluminum, so it’s lightweight enough for her to wear during her yoga session ($14.99; etsy.com).
