Great Gift Ideas for the Athlete or Health Nut in Your Life

Whenever I buy a gift for someone, I aim to give them something with purpose, that I really think they as an individual would enjoy. To achieve this, I like to think about their different hobbies or professional goals. Maybe their career requires them to have some particular type of tools or resources. Whenever you buy something like this it will always be appreciated. Sometimes it is more enjoyable to gift someone an item that has to do with their hobby though, because these are the things that really bring them joy. For example, maybe you have a friend that likes to cook to stay healthy, or someone who is training for an upcoming marathon. These are the types of friends I have, so I have spent a lot of time shopping for people like this. If you are struggling with what to gift the athlete or health nut in your life, I have you covered with a few great ideas below.

Gift Ideas for the Athlete

Some Type of Fitness Tracker

Over the last few years the growing trend of the fitness tracker has reached almost every demographic and is still steadily on the rise. One of the things that have contributed to this growing trend is the increasing progression and improvement of technology. Every time there is a new feature available, there is need for a new, fresh, model that will include these updates. Sometimes a whole new product is designed due to extreme improvements. These fitness trackers have a range of features depending on which one you purchase, but they all include the basic ability to track how many steps you walk, the distances, pair with an electronic device, be linked in team based communities, and manually keep track of other facets of your health and lifestyle. Some are able to take your pulse or record sports like swimming. However, those features are specific to certain brands or models.

A Gym or Class Package or Membership

There are so many different companies out there that now offer you the ability to mix and match classes and gym sessions from a variety of locations in your city or town. They work with local facilities to create eligible classes or the ability to use a facility like a traditional gym or fitness studio. The programs often offer different levels of packages depending on how many classes or sessions you like to fit into each week. Anyone who really enjoys working out, will love this type of offer and might even bring you along if their membership comes with a buddy pass like some programs I have seen.

Something Tasty for Their Cheat Day

Anyone who is serious about their fitness or nutrition usually gives themselves a break every now and then. You may know exactly what your friend likes, and can get them to perfect treat for their next cheat day. However, if you are stuck with what to get, I recommend gifting them a box of Shari’s Berries. This is a treat that is decadent and delicious but still has some fruit to please their inner health nut.
