A Well Girl’s Holiday Gift Guide

A Well Girl’s Holiday Gift Guide

With Christmas just around the corner, a few last minute gift ideas never hurt anybody!


I’ve been reading so many blogs the last few weeks that have been featuring gift ideas for guys and gals alike.  I figured I might as well join in and share a few of my favorite items.  They might just be perfect for someone on your list!

For the Runner Girl: The Headphones

Every runner knows the pain and agony of having her headphones ripped from her ears right at the most challenging point in a run. Seriously throws your game off. The JayBirds wireless earphones are all the rage right now, but a little pricey.  I’m actually of fan of the Sony Active version; lots of fun colors, great sound quality, waterproof, and they stay put!

For the Yogi Girl: The Mat

A slippery mat makes for a crappy yoga class, especially hot yoga.  The splurge is definitely Lulu Lemon’s “The Mat”, I have this one.  It’s antimicrobial, large, double sided, and really holds up well during class.  For a steal, check out the Gaiam Athletic 2Grip yoga mat.  I’ve heard rave reviews. Throw in a towel as well!

For the Chef Girl: The Mixer

A Vitamix is a definite splurge item, but one you will never, ever regret.  I use mine daily for smoothies, soups, making my own nut butters and some flours, and great green/red juices! It even doubles as a food processor.  There is literally nothing this machine cannot do. It even cleans itself like a dream. For a “steal” alternative, try out the Ninja Professional series.  My parents have one and they say it’s a great mixer!

For the Well-Dressed Girl: The Boots

I don’t spend a lot on clothes. Never have, never will (except maybe good quality workout gear, I am pretty brand loyal when I find something I like). Riding boots are all the rage.  These Frye boots are considered the best of the best and would brighten up anyone’s holiday, but I have these from Target and I’m a huge fan (with quite a bit of extra cash in my walletOpen-mouthed smile) I also really like Alex and Ani charm bracelets and adding on to my Pandora charms.

For the Girl Who Has Everything: The Gift Card

Some people you just can’t buy for. It’s nearly impossible.  In these cases I like to do one of two things, purchase a handmade item that benefits a charity or just break down and grab an individualized gift card.  I’m a huge StitchFix fan and that is a real treat for anyone.  I also love TheRunnerBox. You can also check out Etsy to find fun, handmade gifts that benefit a great cause.  Also consider a class pass to a local yoga or spin studio.  Make it a date and enjoy lunch and class together.  After all, the season is about spending time with those you loveRed heart.

What’s on your Christmas list?
