Holiday gift guides seem to be popping up online every day now, and I always love browsing through them. Truthfully, my favorite guides to read are the ones geared toward women with similar interests as me–that way I (selfishly) know what to ask for! 🙂 And while the clock is definitely ticking, there’s still some time to get something special for the fitness-loving, foodie, female in your life (how’d you like that alliteration, eh?).
So, here are some of my favorite holiday gift ideas this season!
Gift card for a fitness class or studio
Last year my Aunt CC and Uncle Steve got me a two-month gift certificate to ClassPass (<–affiliate link for $30 off!) which was just the best! Having a membership to ClassPass is something that makes me so incredibly happy, so this gift went over great for me.
This year I’m asking for a gift certificate to CorePower Yoga since their classes aren’t on ClassPass as much these days. They have a great deal right now where $100 gift certificates only cost $80!
I always enjoy a little something sparkly around the holidays (and, let’s be honest, all times of the year). I’ve gotten some really fun sparkly statement necklaces as gifts in the past (Francesca’s has a great selection and they aren’t as pricey as some others you’ll find) and I find myself turning to them time and time again during the holidays!
I also love all things Kate Spade, and I think their sparkly studs that come in a bunch of colors are really fun.
This time of year I feel like you can never have enough cozy sweaters in your life! This year I’m loving the longer cardigans, kimonos and vests that drape down, and I’ve seen a ton of affordable ones — some with fun aztec prints! — at places like TJ Maxx, Marshalls and Target.
Here’s a fun vest I saw online at Francesca’s!
Psst – this is a steal compared to similar versions sold at Anthropologie!
Come on, you knew this would be on my list right? 😉 I ask for new fitness gear every year and usually take this opportunity to ask for something a little bit nicer quality than I would typically buy for myself.
This is something I would use every day and is a little bit more of a splurge than I would get for myself. It’s a perfect holiday gift!
New Training Shoes
Similar to workout apparel, I think new training shoes would make a great gift! I rarely buy myself new running shoes or cross-training shoes, so when someone buys me new ones that’s pretty much the only time I replace them. (Unless they are seriously worn down, in which case I will procrastinate as long as possible before buying new ones.)
I’m loving the Nike Women’s Flyknits right now and think they would be great for all the bootcamp classes I take! Plus they come in lots of fun colors.
The end of 2015 and all of 2016 were big years for me personally–from getting engaged last Christmas to buying a house in July–so a personalized gift with some of these milestones would mean a lot to me. I actually recently bought myself this ornament from Etsy to remember our first Christmas in our house, and I think a personalized wedding ornament or memento could make a great gift.
While Etsy is obviously a good place to look, there are lots of other places online to find gifts too! I was actually recently contacted by the folks at Uncommon Gifts, and I was surprised by the amount of truly unique personalized gifts I found on their website. In particular I’m loving this tote bag with a personalized picture of your pet on it. If anyone wants to get me one with Jack’s picture on the front I won’t mind a bit! 😉 I actually wound up crossing two people off my list this year with personalized gifts from this site, but I can’t post them here because they both read the blog! 🙂
Some of the stuff on that site is a bit out there, but some of it’s really great too. I think it would be especially helpful if you’re stumped on what to get a boyfriend or husband–I never know what to buy for boys!
Question of the day: How much holiday shopping have you done?
I only have three measly gifts so far…looks like I need to get on it!
