Stocking stuffers — they’re so much fun to open, and we think they should be just as much fun to buy! Whether you’ve got a true fitness aficionado or you’re shopping for someone just beginning on a health and wellness journey, there’s an inexpensive gift on this list that’ll fit the bill.
10 Fit Stocking Stuffers
Protein 2Go ($7.99): Every athlete needs a little help with post-workout recovery nutrition, and these packets from Designer Whey make it not only super simple but also pretty darn tasty. It’s available in three flavors, each of which packs 10 grams of protein and just 50 calories and one gram of sugar. Did I mention that it’s tasty?
Arctic Ease Wrap (starting at $9.99): Oh, hey, speaking of recovery, give the gift of cold therapy without the burden of having to sit around with ice packs on … well, everything. These wraps keep affected areas cool and compressed without clips, clamps or tape.
DIY Fabric Coasters: DIY gifts are thoughtful, easy to personalize, and, often inexpensive, and these cute coasters from Words to Sweat By are a fab idea, don’t you think?
Yankz ($4.93-$7.93): Nothing ruins a run like having to stop — repeatedly — to retie shoelaces. Yankz solve the problem — set them up once and you’re done for the life of your shoes! Plus, they come in a bunch of fun colors.
KAP TAP ($3.99): Allow your athlete to turn any ol’ water bottle into a spill-proof, squeezy sport bottle with this neat little contraption that puts a tiny hole in the cap of a disposable bottle.
lucy Power Double Strap Headband ($10): You know how much we love things that combine fashion and function around here, and this headband definitely does just that.
Dang Toasted Coconut Chips ($6.32): These vegan, gluten-free chips were a 2014 sofi Award winner, and while they’re a great little snack on their own, they can also be added to ice cream, trail mix, yogurt, cookies and more!
Clif Bar Seasonal Flavors ($15 for a box of 12): Available in three seasonal flavors (Spiced Pumpkin Pie, Iced Gingerbread and Pecan Pie), the seasonal Clif Bar flavors are something many of us look forward to every year. And this is a great choice if you have a few stockings to stuff — buy one box and you’ll have everyone covered!
Ribbon Hair Ties ($5): A girl really can’t have too many hair ties around, and cute ribbon ties like these are perfect because you can wear them around your wrist when not in use, then toss it in your hair for a quick ponytail when needed.
4-Pack of Athletic Socks ($8.49): Socks might not be the most exciting gift in the world, granted, but fitness folks go through a lot of them, so this is a stocking stuffer that’s sure to be appreciated.
What’s the best stocking stuffer you’ve ever given (or received)? I’m not going to lie — I’ve gotten some pretty rad socks in my stocking in years past. —Kristen
