16 Last Minute Fitness Gift Ideas For Any Budget! |Fit and Well|

$10-25 Fitness Gifts

Light Weight Jump Rope

Perfect for: The CrossFit fanatic or frequent traveler who needs a portable way to get some cardio while abroad. 

Why I Recommend: I have a jump rope and love it. It’s easy to pack for when I go on trips and it’s a great way to burn fat and get the heart pumping. 

CamelBak Water Bottle 

Perfect for: The avid water drinker, gym goer, and person who can’t seem to have enough water containers. 

Why I recommend: I have two CamelBak water bottles and love them! They come in various sizes and are high quality without being too pricey. 

Athletic No Show Socks


Perfect for: The daily gym goer who is always losing their socks in the wash. Simple, but very practical. 

Why I recommend: Athletic socks (like these Adidas ones or Nike) fit well, don’t bunch up, aren’t so thin they are going to wear out after one session, and not so thick they suffocate your toes. 

Ear Buds


Perfect for: Your fitness friend who is always washing her headphones in the washing machine or losing them at the gym. 

Why I recommend: Every fitness fanatic needs headphones. Most of us go through them pretty fast too. I especially love these JVC Marshmallow buds because they are comfy, fit my ears perfectly, and don’t fall out!

Quest Bars


Perfect for: A clean eater who loves good tasting protein bars. 

Why I recommend: Quest Bar is hands down my favorite protein bar. Amazing taste, 20g of protein, 17g of fiber, and under 200 calories makes them my number one. My favorite flavor is chocolate chip cookie dough which also happens to be their top selling flavor. 

Misfit Wearables Flash Fitness and Sleep Monitor Watch

Perfect for: Someone who is just getting into fitness and is looking for a simple, easy way to track their activity levels and sleep. 

Why I recommend: The MisFit Flash is the perfect basic fitness tracker. It’s easy to use and the battery lasts up to 6 months with no charging.  

Foam Roller


Perfect for: Your pal who has back pain or who’s mobility could use some work. 

Why I recommend: Foam rollers are basically a cheap way to give yourself a therapeutic massage. They are great for improving mobility and blood flow. 

Rose Gold Dumbbell Necklace


Perfect for: Your fashion-conscious friend who wants to express her love of lifting everywhere she goes. 

Why I recommend: This dainty necklace is the perfect way to express a love for fitness and lifting. Plus, you can’t go wrong with rose gold. It’s #trending. 😉

Fitness Notebook


Perfect for: Your gym buddy who wants to enter a fitness competition or who feels motivated by their metrics. 

Why I Recommend: If you (or the fitness fanatic in your life) are serious about transforming your body, keeping track of stats are critical. This little pocket-sized book helps you stay on track and visually see your progress. 

Oster Blend Bottle


Perfect for: Your nutrition savvy pal who wants to bring her green smoothies with her everywhere. 

Why I Recommend: Two words. LESS DISHES. You can blend your smoothie right into the bottle. Makes grabbing and going easy!

$25-50 Fitness Gifts

Gaiam 5mm Yoga Mat


Perfect for: Any yogi, wanna be yogi, seeker of zen or lover of corpse pose.

Why I recommend: I LOVE my Gaiam mat. I prefer the thicker (5mm) to the thinner cheaper varieties. More cushion for my wrists and less slip. 

A Gym Bag That’s Actually Cute


Perfect for: Your friend who has been using the same stinky gym bag for way too long. 

Why I recommend: This gym bag is cute and is just the right size. I like having a big enough bag to hold my shoes, some extra socks, and a water bottle. 

Suspension Trainer


Perfect for: Your fitness friend who wants to workout anywhere (even at the park) or get a stronger core. 

Why I recommend: My suspension trainer has been one of my favorite purchases. It’s a fun way to mix up my workouts and I can hook it up anywhere! A TRX trainer costs $200. This one gets the job done just as well and is a fraction of the price. Win!

Nike Pro Warm Tights


Perfect for: A running enthusiast who insists on running in the snow and freezing temperatures. 

Why I recommend: I have a couple pairs of Nike Pro Warm tights and lemme tell ya, they are warm and cozy. Perfect for cold weather running or even an extra layer for skiing. 

$50-100 Fitness Gifts

Nike Free Training Shoe


Perfect for: The girl who does it all and likes a less cushy feel in her training shoe. 

Why I recommend: My Nike Free’s are my favorite training shoe to date. Great for running, lifting, playing sports, walking and doing all the things.

Meditation Cushion

meditation cushion


Perfect for: Your yogi friend who is searching for inner peace. Or just a more comfortable spot to meditate. 

Why I recommend: Meditation has tons of health benefits. I believe it has an important role in overall wellness. This cushion would go perfectly in a quiet meditation space.
