After two gift guides for the men (Gadget Guy and Outdoorsman), two for the ladies (Hostess and Girly Girl) and one for the little ones (Baby’s First Christmas), I have created a unisex present guide – for the athletes. I am drooling over some of these gifts, most especially the Tory Burch Fitbit Flex bracelet. It is perfect.

I recently bought my fifth pair of Nike LunarGlide running shoes and cannot tell you enough how wonderful they are. I have tried running in lots of different pairs, and these are by far the best. When I’m out running (without Isla and the stroller), I’ve always had to put my keys in my tiny shorts pocket and hold my phone. I would not have to do this if I had the SPIbelt (think modern, athletic fanny pack).

When it comes to taking yoga, this Stott inspiration mat is definitely a must-have. You’ll want to bring your yoga in this trendy glass bottle.

If you’re looking for an alternative workout, try this amazing Nike jump rope (I cannot do it for more than a few minutes!) or Ballet Beautiful. My best friend introduced me, and ohmygosh. Her workouts are intense. She trained Natalie Portman for Black Swan and has the most amazing body ever!

Last, but not least, is a gift that isn’t linked on the gift guide above: ClassPass. Currently located in NYCBostonSan FranciscoLAChicago,Washington D.C.SeattleSan DiegoPortlandDallas and Austin (coming to Houston soon – more details to come!), a ClassPass membership allows you unlimited classes at participating studios. Give the gift of a ClassPass membership or single class visit to any athlete you know living in any participating studios and they will love you.

Do you have any other gift recommendations for an athletic friend, family member or coworker? I’d love to hear them!

      Yes!! You do! I’m excited about trying it!! xo

  2. I have been drooling over the Tory Burch Fitbit watch for ages. And awesome – had no idea about ClassPass and I live in Austin!

      I have been too! I want it so badly! And you should give ClassPass a try!

  3. Great gift guide! My husband would love that jump rope and muscle roller and I’d take Ballet Beautiful. I miss the good old dance days of high school.

      I did the pregnancy Ballet Beautiful workouts and loved them. I did cheerleading in high school, but am not a good dancer at all!! Thank you for the sweet compliment! xo

      Ohhh!!! Fun!!! Did you subtly tell Santa which pair to get? And yes! I was hardcore. At Taylor and competitive. Ohhh the glory days 😉
