If you’re anything like me, I’m a terrible procrastinator for gift giving. Relying on gift guides has saved me a few times in the past and I’m hoping I can share some of my favorites and save you some angst going into this holiday season.
Here are a few of my recommendations for the runner, fitness buffs and wannabes in your life! And grab some for yourself while you’re at it 😉.
For the world traveler (like me):
- Topo Designs
Topo Designs durable bags and outerwear that have a lifetime guarantee. Quality gear that will get your loved one (or you) to and from all your adventures.
Solepack is based out of NYC. They have created a novel concept for a bag accessory to carry your kicks. It attaches to the outside of your backpack with a couple simple snaps, keeping your dirty shoes separate and without taking up space inside your bag.
- Hello Regalo
Hello Regalo is a wearable pocket that uses one of the strongest magnets to keep all your goods on you and keep your hands-free. The pocket is water-resistant and keeps your money, credit cards, keys, phone and more, safe and dry so you can focus on your activity with peace of mind.
Janji based in Boston, MA, designs running activewear with collections that tie back to traveling and running around the planet. And not only do they create unique and inspired patterns, but 10% of the proceeds are also put towards a clean water initiative for developing countries. Shop and give back, it’s a win-win.
For the Fashionista:
- Zella by Nordstrom
Zella by Nordstrom is one of my favorite activewear lines. First, they produce long-lasting garments. Second, the products are stylish while at the same time comfortable, you’ll even forget you are wearing them until you are reminded when you get that compliment, “I love those leggings. Where are they from?”
- JORD wood Watches
JORD Wood Watches are sustainable watches, designed by artists for the people who have places to be. The modern designs are stunning pieces of work that are eye-catching but also perfect for the minimalist, apres workout.
- Outdoor Voices
Outdoor Voices creates activewear that is simple but cozy and functional. They are perfect for that inner child within the adult who enjoys running, yoga, or just having a mocha latte.
For the one who cares about inner and outer health:
- FRE Skincare
FRE Skincare has specifically thought of a skincare line for the woman who works out. They have developed a 100% vegan and cruelty-free line for the athletic woman to help maintain a healthy aesthetic. The line consists of a cleanser, serum, and moisturizer that takes into account the process of sweat and helps keep a fresh and blemish-free face. I have just recently started using their products and have felt a noticeable, positive difference during and post workouts in hydration and reduced skin irritation. FRE is a MUST skincare routine for women that sweat. GET 25% off on your first FRE set by using my code WANDERLUST, valid only for the next 48 hours!
ApexM has created a unique mild muscle stimulator to help naturally build the efficiency of female pelvic floor muscles. Hitting my mid-30’s and staying healthy is important to me, inside and out. As a healthcare professional, I know the waitlist to see a women’s health physical therapist can be extraordinarily long for those who suffer from urinary incontinence. This tool can be discreetly used at home while providing effective results for those with urinary or sexual health issues. As a woman and an athlete, I think that is pretty awesome.
- Legend Compression Wear
Legend Compression Wear I’ve talked several times about my love for the Legend Compression Brand. They provide Graduated Compression Technology that helps to improve efficiency during activity and recovery following. Use this link to get $15 OFF!
Invisii has developed revolutionary workout underwear. Light-weight, breathable, comfortable and hygienic, essentials for sports underwear. They allow workouts to happen without riding up or embarrassing smells, which are real problems any woman who is active is aware of and now no longer has to suffer from.
- Roll Recovery
Roll Recovery designed out of Boulder, CO by a runner and cyclist, has developed award-winning massage and recovery products for endurance athletes. I’m obsessed with my R3.
For the one who needs a little extra motivation:
- Mind Over Matter Athlete
Mind Over Matter Athlete out of Houston, TX, brings the inspiration and motivation with their leisurewear and tri-kit catchphrase concepts like Mind Over Matter, I’m All Heart, and Leave No Doubt. Use the code MMKRISTY to get 10% off!
- Momentum Jewelry
Momentum Jewelry creates some of my favorite jewelry that can be worn during athletics. Each with a motivating tag-line or one that can be custom made, they are little reminders of strength. During the Berlin Marathon my “Run and Be Happy” wrap bracelet was right next to my Garmin watch to remind me to smile despite the pain and to keep a positive outlook on my race, it was a literal reminder for me to keep going. I adore my wraps! I also have two 30% discount codes and two 40% discount codes that I will giveaway on Instagram @thefitwanderluster later this week. Be sure to follow to be kept in the loop for your chance to win!
OK…on your mark, get set, go SHOPPING!
