gift guide, fitness, wellness, sweaty betty, the sports edit

  1. Pointe Studio Grip Socks* – Being a barre girl, I have more grippy socks than normal socks. These come in so many gorgeous designs.
  2. Sweaty Betty Metallic Water Bottle – Haven’t you heard? Single use plastic is out and these insulted bottles are in. I love this sleek design from Sweaty Betty.
  3. Sweaty Betty Coin Purse – A cute little stocking filler, what more could you ask for?
  4. Stance Socks* – A must for the runner in your life, these socks are uniquely reinforced and cushioned to optimise comfort while running or training.
  5. Moleskine Wellness Journal – My brother brought me one of these last year and it’s great for tracking food, exercise, goals and lots more.

Special Treats – £30 – £80gift guide, fitness, wellness, sweaty betty, the sports edit, christmas

  1. Ren for KikkiK Joy Gift Set – There are a few options in the Ren KikkiK collaboration, but this is my favourite. With essentials oils and magnesium, these products were created to keep the skin supple and toned, plus all Ren Skincare is cruelty free and designed with the planet in mind.
  2. Falke Versatility Sport Bra* – With max support, this is perfect for runners, cross fitters, and anyone cranking up the intensity of their workouts. Featuring a zip front, it’s stylish and super supportive.
  3. Beyond Yoga Viper Leggings* – From barre to the bar, I can’t wait to throw on a pair of boots and a sparkly top with these, and head out for some festive drinkies.
  4. Sweaty Betty Gym to Gin Vest – In a festive red, what’s not to like about this cute slogan tee? Perfect for the gin lover in your life.
  5. B Yoga Traveller Mat* – Made of 100% ecofriendly rubber, the B Mat is non-toxic, lightweight, and perfect for using as a mat topper if you’re not a fan of studio mats. With it’s super-grip, there’ll be no sliding out of your Downwards Dog!

Pure Luxury – £80+gift guide, fitness, wellness, sweaty betty, the sports edit, christmas

  1. Sweaty Betty Ski Base Layer Set – A seasonal favourite from SB, their base layers are stylish and functional. I’m not a skier (hello bad knees) but if I ever make it back to the Alps, this outfit will most definitely be in my suitcase for curling up with a hot chocolate post hike.
  2. Sweaty Betty Velvet Backpack – A pure luxury section wouldn’t be complete without a luxurious velvet backpack would it?!
  3. Beyond Yoga Drape* – If you’re looking to a beautiful, soft throw over, then look no further than this Amethyst cardigan from The Sports Edit. Wear it to stay warm before class, or simply to lounge around at home after the big Christmas lunch.
  4. Veja Suede Trainers* – OK, so not exactly appropriate for fitness, but I just love them! This gorgeous petal petale shade will see them through the spring, and they’re perfect for to and from the studio.
  5. Sweaty Betty Velvet Body – Do I have the confidence to rock this? I’m not sure, but I love the idea of pairing with a midi skirt, or even jeans, for a sleek look this christmas.

The Wellness Gift Guide 2017

*Not a sponsored post, apart from being a Sweaty Betty ambassador, I have no connection to any of these brands.

It’s that time of year when your inbox is flooded with gift ideas….Gifts for Her, Gifts for Him, Gifts for Teens, Gifts for Your Loved One etc etc. But what about gifts for the wellness warrior in your life? Be it your yoga bunny bestie, your personal trainer partner, or simply someone you know loves to look after their mind and body, everyone deserves a treat this Christmas.

I’ve actually not started my Christmas shopping yet, which is unlike me, so in order to give myself a little kick up the backside, I’ve compiled a little list of some ideas for you, ranging from stocking fillers to more extravagant surprises. Take a look, and get shopping!

Treats up to £75

Flo 260 Massage Bar – £7.99

gift guide, christmas, massage roller

(tkmaxx.com)

Whether you want to admit it or not, rolling has so many benefits! For those who don’t love a foam roller, these handheld rollers are a great idea to get deep into those sore muscles. They might not thank you immediately (rolling is painful at times) but they will in the long run.

 

Kikki-K Wellbeing Diary – £21

gift guide, kikki-k, diary 2018, wellbeing

(kikki-k.com)

Not just dairy, but full of inspiration and prompts for a happy and healthy 2018.

 

S’well Bottle – from £25

gift guide, christmas, health, wellness

(swellbottle.com)

I am a massive fan of S’well bottles…I have two! Keeping cold drinks cold for 24 hours, and hot drinks hot for 12 hours, I have a traveller one for coffee and a bottle as above for water. They’re also completely leak proof and come in so many gorgeous designs!

 

Lululemon Run It Out Ear & Neck Warmer – £25 each

gift guide, lululemon, running, christmas

(lululemon.co.uk)

No-one likes cold ears, or a chill down their necks, so these Lulu warmers are a great idea for outdoor training. Buy one, or both for the matching set!

 

Sweaty Betty Gym Clutch – £35

sweaty betty, gift guide, gym, christmas

(sweatybetty.com)

If you’re lucky enough to have a gym just a stones throw from where you live or work, you probably don’t need a huge gym bag to fill with unnecessary baggage. This little clutch from Sweaty Betty is perfect for your gym pass, keys, phone, headphones, purse and maybe a little deodorant for a post workout spritz. I love the colour, and if you are gymming it further afield, then you can simply sling this in your main gym bag to make sure you don’t forget your essentials!

 

Sweaty Betty Velvet Padded Bra – £45

sweaty betty, gift guide, christmas, luxe

(sweatybetty.com)

I’m honestly not sure of the usefulness of a plush velvet sports bra, but I love it anyway! In fact, Sweaty Betty doesn’t even name this a ‘sports bra’ so I vote it gets worn underneath a fancy New Years Eve outfit for some comfort! Maybe this can be a treat for the lovely lady in your life?

 

Cowshed Knackered Cow Spa in a Box – £65

gift guide, cowshed, christmas

(cowshedonline.com)

I don’t know any health and fitness person who doesn’t like a night of relaxation and indulgence. In fact, if you want to earn all the partner / sibling / bestie / housemate points, get home early, run them a bath with this gift pack and treat them to a calming pre-Christmas night in…..hmmmm can anyone do that for me?!?!

 

Indulgent gifts over £75

Urbanears Plattan 2 Bluetooth Headphones – £85

gift guide, urbanears, christmas, music

(urbanears.com)

If like me, you’re (ahem, or the person you’re buying for) constantly listening to music or a podcast in the gym or while running, then the new Urbanears wireless headphones are going to be right up their street. Foldable, and with 30 hours of wireless time, they’ll never be stuck with awful gym music again!

 

Fitbit Alta HR – £129.99

gift guide, christmas, fitbit, fitness

(fitbit.com)

If chunky heart rate monitors aren’t your favourite thing, then the Fitbit Alta HR might be the best gift yet. The slimmest fitness tracker with heart rate technology, Fitbit have designed this in a range of attractive colours. Tracking exercise, sleep, heart rate and the usual steps etc. it’s a great gift for someone who’s either a fitness pro or just beginning their healthy journey.

 

Eastpak Stand Holdall – £200

gift guide, yoga, eastpak, christmas

(Emilie James / Eastpak)

Now this is a big indulgence, but since spotting it on the lovely Emilie’s instagram (@lovaine_james) I have been in love. Eastpak are moving with the times with this limited edition range, which also includes a gorgeous back pack. This weekend bag includes a yoga mat sling, making it the perfect gift for the yogi in your life. Not keen on the colour? It comes in a dark grey/black too.

 

The list could be endless, but I’ll stop there for now. Perhaps this will give you some ideas to share with your loved ones, or help you choose the perfect gift for the fitness fanatic in your life. And hey…..don’t forget your LOVELY personal trainer….treats are ALWAYS welcome. As is chocolate.
