Flowers and chocolates were so last decade. The fitness-minded gals of today who live in yoga pants and go hiking for fun want new running shoes instead of jewelry. Maybe that’s just me, but if your sweetie is fitness minded, skip the conversation hearts and check out these seven fitness-related gift ideas for your girl instead.
1. Fitness Tracker
It’s the hottest fitness item right now – a fitness tracker. FitBit has been dominating the market in the last few years, and it seems that everyone has a little flashing band on their wrist. I recently traded my FitBit Flex in for an Apple Watch, but there still is a special place in my heart for the Flex. Its simplicity and ability to challenge my friends is something I really miss with my new watch. At around $100, the FitBit is a gift your Valentine is sure to love.
If your gal is a runner, you may also consider looking for a running watch. Garmin running watches are not only very functional with many features but stylish as well.
2. Green Juice
Romantic, isn’t it? Your health-conscious lover probably loves green juice (and since green juice is chock full of vitamins and goodness, who doesn’t?). Consider getting them a juicer like this Breville or my personal favorite, this Blendtec. Or better yet, avoid the fuss and sign them up for a juice delivery service like this one from Pressed Juicery.
3. Alpha Brain
We are bombarded with information these days – with technology shooting us information at rapid speeds all the time. Most of us are going non-stop, juggling work and life and everything in between. The more that is on our mind, the harder it is to keep up and to focus. Women are notorious for multitasking and taking care of everyone at all times. Some days that can be a lot of remember. Enter Alpha Brain, a supplement that supports memory, focus and processing speed. Get your girl a bottle and watch her brain begin working at optimal levels.
4. Water Bottle
Pretty much everyone should be drinking more water. It’s one of the most simple things you can do to help you improve your health, yet, we don’t do it! I feel ya; I struggle with it every single day. From an app that reminds me every hour to a water bottle constantly at my side, getting my allotted amount of water each day is still a challenge. I find that every so often picking up a new, cute water bottle gives me the motivation to drink more. Bkr bottles are super trendy right now, thanks to stars like Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Garner, and Jessica Alba, toting around their bubbly and adorable fashion accessories. They start at $28 and currently their special edition Valentine’s Day line can be found on their website here.
5. Boutique Gym Membership
Your fitness-minded honey needs options when it comes to gyms. Why go to one of them when you can choose from over 80 boutique gyms in Southern California? With the fitted. membership, you get unlimited workouts at any of the gyms in the network. Doing one type of workout gets boring for both mind and body; with fitted. do MMA one day, yoga the next day, boot camp the next, and then cycle…you get the idea. Your girl will love having the ability to choose a different type of workout every day of the week if she wanted. Check out if your favorite gym is in the network here.
6. Quality Headphones
Let’s face it, the cheap and flimsy iPhone headphones just don’t cut it. The sound okay and is enough to get you by, but they break quite easily. The sound on my 4th pair now goes in and out when I move the jack, which isn’t conducive to running. If your gal is a runner, get her some wireless headphones. If she’s a gym rat, these Beats By Dre OverEar Headphones are super hot. I’m tempted to buy myself a pair.
Pants are overrated. If we could, girls would just wear yoga pants all the time. And don’t get me started on sports bras – to find a good one is like finding the Holy Grail. Seriously, the heavens open and angels sing. If you have a fitness-loving gal, there’s no doubt she loves workout clothes. I’ll bet that in her closet are her closest friends – Lulu, Lorna, and Lucy. Plus it’s proven that cute workout clothes help burn calories. I swear.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
