Fitness Gift Guide For Men (Apparel)

Disclaimer: this post contains some affiliate links.

Yesterday I wrote up a fitness gift guide for women, and today we are focusing on the men in our lives. Sadly, I don’t think Forever 21 has fitness apparel for men though… ;)

Check out this fitness gift guide for men!

Let’s jump into my fitness gift guide for men!

lululemon men's fitness apparelMetal Vent Tech Long Sleeve 2.0 (lululemon) – $78

I love lululemon tops and their “no stink” technology. I swear it does work. As much as I also love my Nike shirts, after a while there is just this sweaty stench to them. Hot, I know. Anyway, that is why this lululemon top is on my list!

Men's Fitness Apparel Gift GuideNike Men’s Short Sleeve T-Shirt – $26

You can’t go wrong with a workout shirt of his favorite team. Dan finds all of his Rutgers stuff at Kohl’s, so check them out for sports apparel (both normal stuff like cotton tees, sweatshirts etc. and also fitness/dri-fit stuff) too!

Reebok Men's Crossfit ShortsReebok Crossfit Board Shorts – $59.99 (on sale currently)

Have a crossfitter in your life? Definitely check out Reebok. Also, even if you’re not a crossfitter I’d look through their stuff. I really like some of their spandex shorts and board shorts. Their material is super comfy!

Nike Socks For MenNike Elite Crew Socks – $13.99

My brother loves these socks and so does my dad. Though he also buys the Puma version from TJ Maxx (which is just as good). I like thicker socks for working out/running, so these are a good option for that. 

Men's Lifting Gloves

 

“The Gripper” – $24.95

So I was actually searching for men’s lifting gloves but then found these. First of all, do guy wear lifting gloves or do they WANT calluses? lol. Second of all, how cool are these? I kind of want some of my own. I think they’d really help in exercises where your grip strength is lacking a bit, like pull-ups or any pulling exercise. 

And that’s all my men’s fitness apparel ideas! Stay tuned for a running gift guide and a fitness gift guide focusing on accessories (which is the one I’m most excited to write).

Did any of these ideas help you?

Are you or do you know a crossfitter?

Fitness Gift Guide For Women (Apparel)

Disclaimer: this post contains affiliate links

Can you believe the holiday season is upon us? Because I can’t! I have a few holiday related things up my sleeve for you all, starting with 6 gift guides coming at you this week and next. I figured we will all start shopping soon, and why not get inspired OR find ideas for what YOU might want to add to your own wish list ;)

Here are my topics for the gift guides after this one:

  • Fitness gift guide (apparel) for men
  • Stocking stuffers (health/fitness/running related)
  • Health and fitness gift guide (think tech, appliances, food, etc.)
  • Gift Guide for Runners
  • My Favorite Makeup Gift Guide

Today’s gift guide will focus on fitness apparel for women. Whether you’re shopping for yourself, your mom, your spouse, your sister, your BFF…you will find some ideas below.

Holida Gift Guide: Fitness Apparel For Women

Okay let’ get started…

Forever 21 Activewear - Heathered Capri Leggings

 Heathered Athletic Capri Leggings (Forever 21) – $12.90

I love that these are heathered and high-waisted. Forever 21′s activewear is actually surprisingly good, and their heathered stuff is really soft. This is perfect for winter workouts!

Forever 21 Activewear - Pullover

 Drawstring Cowl Neck Pull-Over (Forever 21) – $22.90

I love cowl neck pull-overs! So comfortable and cozy. Perfect for warming up or just day-to-day wear.

Nike Winter Running Gear

 Nike Dri-FIT Headband & Running Gloves Set – $30.00

This will probably be in my running guide as well but a headband and gloves set is perfect for anyone who plans on exercising outdoors this winter. 

Nike Pro Warm Running Gear

 Nike Pro Hyperwarm Top – $80

Nike hyperwarm tops are my favorite winter tops. They are so warm (same with their tights) and I use them for running, sitting out at football games…basically anywhere where I will be cold. They make a great base layer as well to add lighter tops over them for those bitter, cold runs.

Old-Navy-Activewear

 Burnout Racer Back Tank (Old Navy) – $10

Winter = more indoor workouts. This tank is perfect for that! PS – all Old Navy activewear is currently up to 50% off online. Check it out!

Other places I shop for activewear also include T.J. Maxx (you can find really warm fleece-lined leggings here) and Marshall’s. I’m telling you though, you can find a lot of apparel (and inexpensive at that) at Forever 21.

Where do you shop for yourself or the fitness lover in your life?

Do you prefer capris or shorts for gym workouts in the winter (or you don’t care)? I like capris so I’m not AS cold on the walk from my car to the gym lol

My Holiday Wish List!

I’ve been seeing bloggers posting their wish lists or gift guides, and I wanted to join in. Hopefully my family and Dan see this ;)

Here’s what I want & would probably make great gifts for the runner or fitness lover in your life:

holiday list

Rumble RollerThis takes foam rolling to another level. It seriously hurts so good! You need to try this.

Race Registration – What better gift to give a runner? Race registrations can sometimes be pricey, especially if you’re traveling…or running multiple races a year. I would love a race bib to a spring half marathon!

PRO Compression Socks - I love these socks. Perfect for keeping my shins nice and tight during runs, or for post-run compression and recovery. They have so many colors to choose from as well.

Sports Bras - Whatever brand your fitness enthusiast loves, get it. My favorites are Nike and the Lululemon Ta-Ta Tamer. You can never have too many sports bras!

Erica Sara Designs - Can I have all of the things in her store please? I really love her stackable rings. But the personalized 26.2 and 13.1 necklaces are perfect for the marathoner in your life.

Lululemon Wunder Under PantsI just splurged and got these for leggings and they’re amazing (well, I had a gift card that paid for part of it). Nice and thick..and I made sure they weren’t see through ;) They also make them “brushed” which means they’re even cozier!

Running Shorts – The ones pictured are by Oiselle, but I am currently loving spandex/compression type shorts. My current fav is from Lululemon, but I hear Nike Pro compression shorts are great too.

Runner’s World Magazine Subscription – As a runner, who wouldn’t like this?! I usually check them out at the library but I’d love a subscription. Or any subscription relating to what your loved one likes. One year I got Dan an ESPN subscription :)

What is on your holiday wish list?

What is the best gift you have ever given someone?
