Last-minute gift ideas for health and fitness enthusiasts
by Shelley Langenhorst
If your presents aren’t wrapped snugly beneath the tree yet, don’t fear. We have last-minute gift ideas for the health and fitness enthusiasts in your life, along with coupons to save money.
If you don’t mind dropping some serious cash on last minute gift items, consider picking up a new set of skis or boots for your snow bunny. Walking poles and snowshoes are also great gifts to help friends and family stay active this winter.
If you know someone who prefers getting their fitness on indoors, check your local Sports Authority for a treadmill or elliptical. Many stores are having sales on fitness equipment just in time for New Year’s Resolutions.
Workout clothes are always a hit. Old Navy and Target have some of the most affordable and stylish workout clothes anywhere. If you’re willing to spend a little more, Under Armour carries a very high quality and long lasting brand of active gear. Nike is currently offering free shipping on all orders.
Amazon is a fabulous website to hit up for last minute shopping as they carry just about everything! Purchase a few healthy cookbooks or even a brand new juicer for the foodies in your family.
Gift cards and certificates are truly a last minute gift idea. You don’t have to worry about shipping or wrapping. Give a gift card to their favorite outdoor store, or perhaps choose a gift certificate for a massage or spa service. Don’t forget that you can often gift fitness packages like a 5-pack yoga or pilates class.
You can also give a gift certificate for a favorite eatery – a smoothie or juice bar card would help them stick to healthy resolutions in the New Year.
Thick wool socks are a great (and apropos) gift for the stocking. Keep those tootsies warm while you and your family hit the slopes!
