9 Gifts That Encourage a Healthy Lifestyle

These gifts can be useful for anyone who likes to exercise on a regular basis—and most of them won’t break the bank.

Finding the right gift can be challenging. So we've put together a list of gifts that can be useful for anyone who likes to exercise on a regular basis, and most of them won’t break the bank.

Here we go!

1. Jump rope that counts your steps

Maybe you have a device on your wrist that does this too, but hey, it’s not every day you see a jump rope like this. Plus, it’s nice to separate your steps and track exactly how many come directly from jumping rope. Let’s not forget that jumping rope will take you down memory lane—hello, recess!

2. Fitness tracker

You probably expected this to be on the list. Between smart watches and fitness trackers, there are myriad options for you to choose from. The nice thing about so many options is that you can usually find something that suits your budget.

3. Multipurpose touch screen gloves

These gloves could be great for the runner in your life that wants to keep their hands warm during the colder months while training outdoors. Finally, you can keep your hands warm and use your touch screen at the same time! These are a game changer for anyone who runs outdoors during the winter.

4. Wireless Bluetooth headphones

The only thing better than wireless Bluetooth headphones for music while working out is not having to wear headphones at all. But in reality, if you want your music, you’re probably going to need your own headphones. Prices vary, but for around $25 can get you a great pair.

5. Comfortable socks that absorb sweat

Whether it’s for him or for her, a good pair of socks is essential to any workout. The last thing you want is to be bogged down by blisters, which may even prevent further workouts.

6. Foam roller

Have you used one? Foam rollers are painfully wonderful. They are great for putting pressure on sore muscles after workouts, and some believe they decrease your recovery time. This 3-in-1 combo gives you a portable option and something to keep at home.

7. Sport bottle blender

Know someone that likes to make shakes before or after workouts? This all-in-one blender sports bottle may be just what they are looking for. It’s small enough to fit in a gym bag but packs enough power to make a good smoothie.

8. Yoga mat

Yoga mats are excellent for many indoor exercises. Be sure to buy a non-toxic mat; it may help ensure peace of mind and body before the yoga itself.

9. Resistance bands

Resistance bands are great for at-home workouts and are easy to take with you if you’re traveling. They’ll give you a chance get a workout even if the location or circumstances aren’t ideal.

The best part about all these gifts is that they promote a healthy lifestyle and most of them can be used for multiple purposes. Check out other healthy living articles.
