7 gift ideas your sporty and fit friends will love (plus Scholl foot care giveaway)

Do you have some sporty and fit folk in your life that you are trying to think of some gift ideas for this Christmas?  Perhaps trying to think of gifts you can subtly drop hints to others that you might fancy?

Well, it’s your lucky day!  I have rounded up my top 7 gift ideas that are not necessarily going to cost the earth but will keep on giving well after Christmas has passed by.

1.  Foam roller

This baby will become your best friend, I have two in varying density to iron out any sore and tight spots and aid in recovery.  It is kinda addictive once you start rolling and start thinking of ways you can fit a foam roller into your luggage when you travel. Here are ways I use my foam roller.

2.  Personal blenders


This is another present that will revolutionise your life.  Gone are the days of big clunky blenders, the new breed of personal blenders make it super simple and cleaning is all contained in one drink bottle, genius! I can vouch for the sunbeam model above but there are quite a few on the market.

3.  Massage


If your friend (or you) doesn’t have a regular time slot with a good masseur, do them a favour and book them in with a trusted masseuse and give the gift of body maintenance and injury prevention. A good massage is worth it’s weight in gold!

4. Sports wear

virus sportswearTechnology has come so far in regards to what we wear during and after working out. I use Virus performance wear to aid in recovery and use on flights and feel the benefits. Sportsbras, running shorts, swimwear, visors, singlets, shirts ..the list goes on

5.  Lifestyle, food and wellness coaching

Yes this is a blatant self promotion ;), but it’s my blog so I’m allowed. Do you have a friend that just seems to be on the diet rollercoaster, lack motivation to achieve fitness goals or just generally need a bit of a help in getting starting on their journey to wellness?  Again, a priceless gift that will pass on lifelong skills and change their life forever! Visit my website Karla Gilbert Wellness  for details and packages

6. A healthy cookbook

There are so many whizzing around the interweb, Sarah Wilson, Pete Evans have great books that can help steer you in the right direction with your meal planning and recipes.

7.  A foot care pack

One poor part of our bodies that surely gets neglected is our tootsies. Fitness fanatics, well, let’s face don’t have the most beautiful feet going around but with a bit of pampering can be back on track. Blisters on feet, cracked heels, black toenails, you get the drift are common ailments of the active that can make summertime sandal wearing a little embarrassing.

Christmas has come early!!

    I have my heart set on a delicious looking tote to carry all my gear. Tops my wish list.

    I’m loving the idea of a foot-care pack! Especially after a dancing marathon and long walk home in high-heels after a wedding on the weekend!

  • Kylie Jakins

    Thanks Karla for the gift ideas definitely going to look at the sportswear!!!

  • Eva -The Grizzly Bear

    You just helped me fill out my Christmas wishlist… Thanks! 😀

  • The Exercise Hitlist

    Love all of these gift ideas! A pedicure was on my treat list after completing this adventurethon (I just finished doctoring some blisters on the old footsies, so the Scholl foot care pack would not go astray, lol). My xmas wish list definitely includes the blender (actually have been eyeing off that Sunbeam one) and some new tights!

    • Oh yes, pedicure is definitely on the cards for you! Congrats on your HUGE efforts so far!

  • Simone Porthouse

    My nan always said “look after your feet they need to carry you a life time!” X

  • Vanessa Robinson

    Some fantastic gift suggestions Karla…thank you. You’re right about our feet getting forgotten. Our focus is usually on taming what’s above them & looking after all the other body parts but without them we’d be lost!

  • Rebecca Sawden

    On my Christmas list this year is my wedding rings getting rodium platted for the first time in 7 years. Also was wanting a mani and pedi but if I won this fabulous prize maybe I could just get a pampering facial ????

    • Oh sounds lovely Rebecca! It’s nice to show off our manicured feet in summer sandals 🙂

  • hayley

    Oh the roller…… so good…. it is such a shame I have to leave my “Best Friend” at the gym as it never seems to be something on my list of gifts to get myself… although… a foot pack to soothe and comfort my feet, especially after RPM classes at the gym plus walk / running my boxer 9 kms 4 times a week, would be the best Christmas gift I could ever receive… xx
