10 Unique Christmas Gifts for Active People
This year has been filled with challenges, and that includes making Christmas a special occasion. Life for many of us has been difficult for the past few months. Whether it’s working from home, juggling responsibilities, or simply fighting the malaise brought on by home confinement, trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle is bringing about unprecedented creativity. What we know as work/life balance has taken on new meaning. Our morning commute now consists of walking from the kitchen table to the living room to begin our workday. Essentially, what we are saying is that physical activity is more important than ever as we all collectively adhere to social distancing guidelines while maintaining our focus on health and fitness.
The lack of physical separation between home and work - combined with less overall physical activity for many of us - brings about new aches and pains, not to mention stress and anxiety. Even for active people, the rigors of exercise and everyday life can still take its toll. With that in mind, 2020 is an extraordinary gift-giving opportunity for the people we care about as we all aim to improve our health and quality of life.
Here are some great gift ideas to help your loved ones enter 2021 feeling amazing!
1) CaniBrands Full Experience Bundle
If you have an active friend or family member, you know firsthand how important energy and recovery is to them. The CaniBrands Full Experience bundle features a variety of premium CBD infused oils and topical cream. This variety of CBD options will help boost energy, benefit sleep, and offer quicker recovery for a workout. CaniBrands oils are all-natural, lab-tested and formulated with essential vitamins to make you feel amazing.

2) Fitness Tracker Watch
Active people everywhere like to track their fitness journey. Why not make that a reality this year? Fitness trackers like the Fitbit Versa 2 and Apple Watch Series 5 are both fantastic options for wearable trackers. The latest technology allows you to track nearly every aspect of your fitness, sleep, and even your heart health.
3) Kettle Gryp
Forget the gym memberships and garage full of dumbbells. The Kettle Gryp is a portable grip accessory tool that will turn a standard dumbbell into a functioning kettlebell. The Kettle Gryp allows for ease of use at home or when traveling without compromising a regular workout.
4) Portable Music Player
Music and exercise go hand in hand. Playing your favorite tunes during a workout is essential to get in your zone. The Sonos One is an Alexa-enabled speaker that allows you to listen to music from all your music apps easily. Swimmers may like the Underwater Audio iPod Shuffle. The iPod holds up to 2 GB of music and is waterproof up to 3 meters.
5) CaniBrands All Day Oral Sprays
As we stated earlier, CBD is a great, unique gift for the active people in our lives. The CaniBrands All Day Oral Sprays contains all four CBD experiences in oral spray form - Boost, Mend, Fresh, and Sleep - and is an ideal choice for first-time CBD users. These great-tasting oral sprays use certified, high-quality CBD oil infused with vitamins, minerals, and herbal extracts. This collection of convenient sprays will boost energy without the jitters, enhance balance and clarity, decrease workout recovery time, and even help you achieve a better night’s sleep. And don’t forget, there’s always the CaniBrands gift card which allows you to bypass any potential shipping delays.
6) Balance Board Trainer
Looking for some workout equipment to use at home while we continue social distancing? The Revolution 101 Balance Board is a core strengthener that fits the bill. The board can be used with or without shoes and promises to be scratch resistant on any surface. It is a lightweight yet durable workout tool that can hold up to 400 lbs. Continued use improves balance, strength, and coordination. Maybe this is what they mean when they say ‘work/life’ balance?
7) Boxing Gloves
Give the gift that allows the receiver to release their inner “Rocky”! Try the Sanabul Essential Gel Boxing Kickboxing and Punching Bag Gloves. These gloves are the same gloves many of the pros wear and are made with high-quality leather so they pack a punch, but spare the pain.
8) Pull-up Bar
Again, being stuck at the house creates a need to get creative. So if the people on your gift list don’t have their exercise equipment, get them the next best thing; the Perfect Fitness Multi-Gym This is more than just your average in-home pull-up bar. It’s a workout bar that can be used in multiple-sized door frames and boasts a hefty 300 lb capacity. When not used as a pull-up bar, it can be rotated and used on the floor for sit-ups, push-ups, and dips.
9) Battle Ropes
Sticking with the fitness theme for our active people, Onnit Battle Ropes are a cool gift for the cross trainer in us all. These versatile ropes are lightweight and portable workout accessories that also reduce the risk of injury, all while offering different techniques that can work out each part of your body; from abs and glutes, to your back and legs.
10) Micro-Fiber Gym Towel
Ok, so on the surface, the idea of buying someone a workout towel seems a little...underwhelming. But it’s far from lackluster when you give the coolest, most effective workout towel on the market! Regular towel design is not designed to be used during a workout. The Rag Company Microfiber Gym Towel offers effective and efficient removal of sweat, while not being harsh on skin. This futuristic microfiber towel works especially well on the face, where it removes sweat while leaving behind the essential oils your skin needs.
