Christmas is just around the corner and just like every year you are wondering what to surprise your partner, spouse, siblings, parents, friends and other loved ones with? If they’re fitness or healthy lifestyle enthusiasts, we’ve got plenty of tips that will definitely make them happy. However, others will also find inspiration for gifts for men and women. For example, comfortable sportswear is also great for walking or shopping. And fitness watches? These can tell you how active you are and whether you are sleeping well, in addition to the exact time. But of course, you’ll also find tips for finer Christmas gifts that can please just about anyone. So let’s get to it!
Christmas gift tips for both men and women of all ages
1. Fitness accessories
When someone tells you that they exercise, you probably immediately think of a person with dumbbells in their hands. But that image is pretty stereotypical. An active person usually uses a much wider range of fitness equipment. And if they have taken up home workouts, you have many options to make them happy. You can even help them create their own home gym.
Accessories for home workouts and regeneration support
- A jump rope is a great helper for cardio or HIIT. It will help improve your fitness and also burn a lot of calories. It is no wonder that boxers and crossfitters use it in their training. If you’re tired of counting skips or keeping track of your workout time, it’s ideal to get a SMART jump rope that will do the job for you.
- Resistance Bands and Expanders – every workout can be made more challenging, and resistance bands can help you with that. If this is the case, we recommend buying a set of resistance bands, so one can determine the necessary resistance level for various exercises, and make their workout a challenge every time.
- Fitballs and Balance Pads – this category will please not only fitness professionals, but also people who sit at work or home office all day. Fit ball is a great tool for rehabilitation exercises. If your back hurts, you can try to sit on the fit ball for at least a part of the day. The back muscles will have to work harder, and this will gradually add strength to the muscles, which will also reduce pain.
- Exercise Mat – almost no home workout is possible without an exercise mat. It is also ideal for home cardio, as this workout incorporates a lot of jumping. The exercise mat reduces impact on your joints and provides safe landing, thus protecting your joints and neighbours from the noise. You can also use it for yoga or stretching.
- Weights add a whole new dimension to every workout. For example, running with a weighted vest or ankle weights presents a new challenge for athletes.
- Adjustable kettlebell will be loved by crossfitters and all fans of dynamic training.
- Suspension trainers are ideal for exercising in the gym, at home or outdoors. This fitness system can be attached just about anywhere. Maybe that’s why it’s so popular with the marines.
- Workout bars allow you to exercise at home as well as at a workout park. They can be hung in the door frame where they won’t get in the way. In some cases, there is even no need to drill. Whenever you move around your apartment, you can do a few push-ups. To spice up your push-ups, gymnastic elements and workout exercises, you can use push-up adapters.
- Ab wheel – a must-have for every fitness enthusiast who truly wants a six-pack. In turn, core sliders will also help strengthen the core of the body.
- Massage rollers will help improve mobility, muscle range and relax stiff muscles. In addition, these aids can speed up recovery.
- A massage gun ensures a good dose of rest and targeted regeneration. Massage guns with an adjustable head and massage intensity will help relax and massage your muscles. This gift will also please non-athletes who need to relax their stiff back or just want to enjoy a pleasant massage.
Accessories for gym workouts
- Belts are an essential part of many gym-goers’ equipment. They strengthen the core of the body, stabilise it when lifting heavy weights, and thus reduce the risk of injury.
- Gloves are a must-have for any athlete who wants to prevent calluses from dumbbells.
- Lifting straps and grips are fitness accessories that make lifting heavy weights easier. They are ideal, for example, for deadlifts.
- Knee, ankle, elbow & wrist wraps are a great aid which help to stabilise ankles, knees, elbows, or wrists not only during sport. If a person is prone to injuries, wraps are the perfect gift.
- Towels are perhaps one of the workout essentials in a gym. No one wants to lie down or sit on a machine that someone else has previously covered in sweat.
- Other accessories include liquid magnesium or classic chalk, which prevents slippage and improves grip. Strength athletes will also be happy to get a hand grip trainer or bicep isolator. Runners will appreciate an arm phone holder to store keys or other small items besides the phone.
Equipment for creating a home gym
- Power racks and stands belong among the basic equipment of every gym, which allows you to incorporate dozens of new exercises into your workout. You can put a barbell on them, for example, during squats or bench press.
- The adjustable bench can be reclined up to 8 positions. Perfect for bench press, dumbbell exercises or ab workouts.
- The Olympic bar can hold up to 900 kg, so even experienced strength athletes can train clean and jerks, squats or deadlifts with it.
- The EZ bar is shaped in such a way that it can be used for various exercises, especially for the upper part of the body. With it, you can do bicep lifts and various exercises for the shoulders, forearms and other muscle groups.
- Iron and rubber weight plates are an inherent part of the Olympic and EZ bars. Only with these will your training have the right momentum.
- Hexagonal dumbbells are the ideal training aid for your home gym. They will help to exercise not only your arms, but also your whole body.
- This set of dumbbells contains two dumbbells that can be connected. This creates a longer weight bar. There are also 16 different plates in the set to create the optimum load. If you are looking for an essential tool for your home gym, here it is.

2. Water bottle or a shaker
Drinking is essential, and not only during sport. You won’t see a person in the gym who doesn’t replenish their fluids while exercising. The same goes for outdoor training or a full day’s work. The majority of your drinking regimen should consist of water, but having a glass in front of you at all times is a bit boring sometimes, isn’t it? Then there’s only one thing to do, give our stylish drinking bottles a chance.
Water bottles for a daily water intake
The larger bottle are ideal for anyone who doesn’t have the space to indulge in drinks during the day or wants to keep track of how much fluid they’ve consumed. Different volumes are available. The biggest drinkers will be delighted with a bottle that can hold up to 2.5 litres. A great choice is the Nomad bottle made of high-quality stainless steel, which can even be carried over your shoulder thanks to the strap. The girls will then be pleased with a large drink container in pink with the BeastPink logo. Girls will love the large drinking bottle in pink with the BeastpPink logo.
Practical bottles for your backpack and handbag
For work, studies or training, you may be able to get by with a smaller volume. Try the handy Hydra Soft Flask, which can be compressed after drinking and thus takes up almost no space in your handbag. Another great choice is a durable screw-lid bottle that can hold up to a litre of liquid. For those who like designer items, we have a colourful screw-lid bottle for 500ml of fluids.
Bottles for hot and cold beverages
In both winter and summer, it’s handy to have a bottle that maintains the temperature of your drink. For example, it could be a hot coffee or tea for cold weather, and a refreshing icy drink on hot days. The Bamboo Infuse bottle meets these criteria exactly. In addition, it is equipped with a practical strainer so that you can prepare loose tea. The Bamboo Eco bottle with 500ml capacity and screw-lid is a hit, and it also reliably maintains the temperature of your drink.
Stylish shakers for water and supplements
And of course, we must not forget about our wide range of shakers in different colour options and designs. These will especially please fitness enthusiasts who can mix their supplements in them. An ordinary shaker can make a delicious creamy shake out of water and a powder. However, it can also be used at any time of the day to replenish fluids as part of a daily water intake.
3. Nutritional supplements
The time when supplements through the generations were considered steroids is long gone. For example, it’s not just strength athletes who want to put on muscle who benefit from protein powder. It’s also great for grandparents who want firm, strong and healthy bones. So let’s take a look at the most popular supplements that are sure to please your loved ones.
Supplements for performance support
