Gift Ideas for Active People - 2015

Happy Holidays! I am happy to say I am chilling to a wonderful Christmas-themed movie and thinking of all the wonderful gifts I would be thrilled to give to my active loved ones. And to help you out, I thought I would share my gift ideas for you with items falling in all price ranges. And yes, this post does contain some affiliate links.

Hydration, hydration, hydration. It is important for all active people so keep your loved ones hydrated in style.

Do they love to run long? May I suggest a CamelBak Marathoner Vest with some SOS Rehydrate? Use coupon code AMB-DGU-GKF for 15% off when you purchase SOS Rehydrate on their website but it is also available online at Amazon in citrus, berry, or mango, at Longs Drugstores in Hawaii, and other local retailers. 

I have been running in my CamelBak for years so rest assured, you are giving a gift that will be cherished on many long runs and SOS Rehydrate is my go-to and has revolutionized my running. No more upset tummies and I am running longer with less gels. 

But what if your active loved one doesn't run long or doesn't run? An SOS Rehydrate handheld bottle and SOS Rehydrate is certain to keep them going strong and well hydrated.

Looking for  more for your loved one? A Garmin GPS watch will help them track their miles, time, and distance and is a treat that many may not indulge in for themselves. Show them how much you love them with this great timing and distance device!

What to keep them safe? Add in a Nathan StrobeLight. This model varies between off, solid light, or flashing light and makes a great stocking stuffer that shows you care about their visibility during early morning or late evening dark runs. Why not buy more than one to share?

Does your active runner need a place to stash stuff? These Nathan Belt is wonderful and I have found if I wear it lower on my hips it doesn't bounce around at all. Yep, push it down low for it to stay snugly in place.

Another treat for runners and non-runners - a new pair of shoes! I adore my Saucony running shoes and will run in nothing else. If you want to make me really happy, I like Kinvara or Ride

And cross training and diversification is great for all so here are a couple of ideas to help you out there.

An exercise ball to stretch backs and add core strength.

A weighted toning ball to add strength to many in-house exercise routines. 

If your active loved ones are like me and rush out to do errands after exercise, perhaps you may want to add some ShowerPill Athletic Wipes to their stockings to keep them fresh smelling. Use coupon code WIPEDOWN for 15% off when you purchase at ShowerPill but they are also available at Amazon.

And speaking of Amazon, you could give the gift of Amazon Prime! Your loved one will be able to receive FREE shipping on a wide range of athletic supplies throughout the year and stream movies, shows, and music. My household LOVES Amazon Prime and there is something for everyone. A win-win for a house that is now cable-free.

Daily Gratitude: I am thankful for the gifts in my life.

Daily Bible Verse: And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. ~ 1 Corinthians 13:13


  1. Giving gifts is such a wonderful feeling.

  2. I so needed this article. I pulled my brother for secret santa and he is so athletic and active and I just had no idea where to start. He does have a few of these things but definitely not all of it. I think he will really like a few of these options. Now I just need to budget it.
