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 wallet) 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 love.
What’s on your Christmas list?
