Christmas was exciting as a kid. The days when you used to circle things you wanted for Christmas in the Argos catalogue, hoping your parents might see and tip off Santa.

As an adult it’s stressful. The main problem is what to buy people. Lucky for you I’ve saved you the hard work and rounded up my top gift ideas for the fitness females in your life…

Garmin Forerunner 235 GPS – £239.99
If you’re feeling spendy this Christmas you can’t go wrong with a Garmin. You can track your pace, distance and calories and the HRM integrates with your smartphone to help you stay on track. It’s also very instagrammable  ❤️

Jaybird X3 Wireless Earphones – £109.99 
I was alerted to this brand through their partnership with the Rock and Roll Marathon series, they stay in place whilst you run and connect to your device via Bluetooth. Being wireless – there are no annoying wires to get in the way and you don’t have to spend 30 mins untangling them before a run!

‘RUN’ Gym Tote Fit Kit – £35.00
I love this brand! This fab gift box includes the You Do Run Run bag, a towel and a set of hair tyes. What more does a girl need? This roomy tote is perfect for the gym and the fit kit even comes in fancy monochrome packaging so you don’t need to gift wrap!

SKINS DNAmic Thermal women’s compression tights – £63.00 and thermal long sleeve top – £90.00
It’s cold training in the winter months – these SKINS compression thermals will keep you toasty warm in temperatures as low as -20°C and they look pretty snazzy too!
See this post for more information on the benefits of SKINS compression wear 

Peace love and Peanut butter Sweatshirt – £65.00
What is it about runners and their love of PB? As soon as I spotted this it went straight on my Xmas wishlist! Perfect for those post long run Sundays.

Giant bobble beany – £40.00
What girl doesn’t love a giant bobble hat? Super cosy knit and the soft grey colour will go with anything.

It’s an unwritten rule – everyone gets socks for Christmas. So I had to find some solely (get it) for the purpose of this gift guide. How fab are these compression socks? If you wear this you may be as quick as lightening. Happy socks = happy feet.[/col2]


Bath bombs – £4.50
Lush have a huge range of bath time goodies, perfect for that post run fizzy-ho therapy to ease those achy muscles. You will be spoilt for choice. [/col3]
