’Tis officially the season for gift-giving. For us, that’s a full month (31 days!) in which we’ll be providing gift ideas for everyone on your list with our Unwrapped holiday gift guides. So make your holiday shopping a breeze this season, and let us help you find gifts for all the people in your life—and maybe even a spoiled pet or two.
We all have that friend. The one who has access to all the new hot classes, a gym membership in addition to a yoga studio class pack, and a closet whose "workout" looks rival your "going-out" ones on a good day. You most likely make plans to meet them every other Saturday for a spin or barre class, and then follow it up with an Instgrammable brunch.
While, on first glance, it may seem easy to get a fashionable fitness fanatic a gift they'll like, they will not settle for just any sports gadget or workout hoodie. These health nuts are style-forward and in possession of almost every single bell and whistle out there. They are also maybe a Virgo.
To make sure you have something under the tree come Christmas time, check out these 19 gifts for the pickiest fitness lovers in your life.
What's more motivating than a sports bra decked out in stars made from Swarovski crystals? We can't think of anything.
Ultracor, Altitude Silk Confetti Swarovski Crop Top, $158, available at Bandier.
Even if your friend works out every day, she probably doesn't wash her hair with the same frequency (because who has time when they work out every day?!). Our favorite shower cap company comes to the rescue with brand-new styles.
SHHHOWERCAP, The Ajax, $43, available at SHHHOWERCAP.
Sure they may already have a yoga mat, but do they have one that's super-absorbent (for all those hot yoga classes), made from non-toxic natural rubber, AND designed by an artist? We didn't think so.
Manduka, Equa® hot yoga mat in "Ashley Mary," $92, available at Manduka.
Every time I wear these leggings (mine are white) to a class, I always get compliments. Get yourself and your BFF matching ones in millennial pink.
Reebok, Lux Bold High-Rise Leggins in "Speckle," $55, available at Reebok.
Does your friend take a shot of apple cider vinegar every morning while holding her nose? Solve that problem by giving her these genius apple cider capsules that simplify the process, don't smell like salad dressing, and prevent the hassle of washing up the glass afterward.

Portable, waterproof, and scratch-resistant, these speakers are perfect for those who love the outdoors, camping, and biking.

Does your gift-recipient get ready at the gym? Great. Give them this pouch that contains all of our favorites from Ursa Major, including an all-natural deodorant, face wash, balm, and wipes.

This is the most comfortable pair of shoes that a fitness fanatic can own. While they are not meant for serious running or working out, these breathable wool sneakers feel amazing to slip into (no socks needed) after a long workout or before running a full day of errands.
Allbirds, Wool Runners in "Kotare Heather," $95, available at Allbirds.
Does your friend preach about the powers of coconut water to heal everything including a raging hangover? Same. They will then love this Instagrammable coconut water sourced only from young coconuts, that contribute to the sweeter taste, and packaged in recyclable glass bottles that reduce waste.
