7 stocking stuffers for fitness fanatics
By Brittany Anas
A giant sock hanging on the chimney — getting toasty by the fireplace? We might challenge folklore and surmise that a jock invented the stocking tradition by accident while letting his basketball socks dry. If you’re helping Santa fill the stockings this year and got an athlete or fitness fanatic on your list, we’ve found a one-stop shop for athletic gear and accessories. (Tell Santa’s elves to take a break from the workshop and head on over to Sports Authority, where they’ll find 4 percent Cash Back and free shipping on orders $49 or above).
Here’s seven great stocking stuffers for athletes — or those with goals to be more fit in 2014:
- All-day activity tracker, $39.99. We’re suppose to log 10,000 steps a day. But it’s hard to count that high and keep track all day. Let a high-tech pedometer do the tracking.
- Multipack socks, prices range. Socks in a stocking? You bet. Maybe this will motivate them to toss out some of those holy socks that have gone through the washer too many times, eh?
- Max Muscle Rehab Gel, $9.99. A gym bag must-have, this gel gives temporary relief to minor aches and pains of the muscles and joints.
- Instant cooling towels, $14.99 to $19.99. A lightweight towel to wick away water or sweat. Wring it out, snap it in the air and cooling properties are activated. Also great for taking to the gym to wipe off machines after use.
- Deodorant, $7.99. Pick some up at the drugstore or get some specialized Bodyglide deodorant that is hypoallergenic for sensitive skin. It’s always good to have some travel-sized deodorant packs to stash in the gym bag or in the locker.
- Reflective belt running waist pack, $25. The 3M Scotchlite reflective details keeps runners visible when they are out jogging — whether it’s at dusk or dawn. This pack also allows them to carry small essentials like their driver’s licenses, keys and cell phones.
- Burton Beanie, $15. An essential for winter workouts — even if it’s just getting to and from the gym.
