Every year, we do a couple of fit gift guides for the holidays. Well, this year we’re taking it to the next level by doing a series of holiday gift guides every Monday from today until Christmas. Woot! From fit gifts for healthy foodies and tech-fiends to those who love all things beauty-related to the perfect stocking stuffers, we are going to hook you up with so many darn cool ideas for everyone on your list. So fellow holiday gift-givers, if you’ve been unsure of what to get the fit peeps in your life, prepare to have your holiday gift-buying world rocked!
We start the holiday gift-guide party with a simple list of six goodies you’ll want to put on your holiday shopping list sooner than later. You’ll notice that we found a variety of gifts in different price ranges and fitness interests. The one thing they all have in common? They’re supportive of a healthy lifestyle. And be warned: you just might find something to add to your wish list, too!
1. Manduka Journey On-The Seeker Yoga Mat Bag. This bag that’s designed specifically with the traveling yogi in mind caught our attention for a number of reasons. First, it’s functional with well-designed compartments to hold smaller items, a secure middle compartment to carry your yoga mat and the option to wear it across your body using the comfortable shoulder strap or more like a traditional handbag by using the shorter handles. Second, it’s cute and goes with just about everything. (We dig the antique brass hardware, natural cotton canvas, and inspirational messages like “Carry peace.”) Third, it’s eco-friendly and made with renewable materials that are unbleached and dyed with non-AZO dyes that reduce the amount of chemicals and toxins released into the environment. We’ll om to that!
Best for: The yogi in your life who travels, cares about the earth and likes cute stuff!
Price: $96 (Think of this more as a piece of luggage than a “gym bag.”)
