I know. None of us want to say it. We are afraid to offend, afraid of what the repercussions might be if the conversation doesn’t go well. I am pretty sure no one to date has been willing to take the risk…until now. I am. I am ready. 

“Santa, you are morbidly obese and it is time you did something about it.”

There, I said it. Let the chips fall where they may. An empty stocking on Christmas morning? Lumps of coal in my bed? It was worth it. Santa’s health is just too important and carrying all that extra weight, particularly around the abdomen, is putting Christmas at risk for all of us. Not OK. 

I knew I would have to follow the above proclamation with action. I considered what would Santa need to really be successful at his new health and fitness plan. Below is a curated list of gift ideas not just for our newly motivated Father Christmas, but for any health and fitness enthusiast. Enjoy!

BOMBAS SOCKS: I am fascinated with these two dudes who thought to build a massive non-profit from socks. The double bonus? The company gives one pair of socks away to a homeless person for every pair they sold. They are comfy and supportive, AND you can feel all good about yourself because you did something awesome. BUY ME

S’WELL BOTTLE: I have bought 12 of these S’Well bottles this year for gifts. They can take hot or cool liquids and have safe insides, yeah yeah, but the color options are the best!

YOGA TOWEL:Santa could benefit from some hot yoga. Hot yoga is a quick way to start dropping some pounds, but you are going to need a yoga towel for all that sweat. This towel is my favorite (and have tried them all. ) Little sticky bits on the underside keep the towel from sliding on your mat and a host of radical colors from which to choose. BUY ME

HEADPHONES: Who doesn’t love a cool new pair of headphones. BEATS seem to corner the market but here is a beautiful pair by SENNHEISER that are of excellent quality and won’t break the bank. BUY ME

PEDOMETER: This is the perfect stocking stuffer! This pedometer makes it easier for that fitness fanatic that doesn’t like to tote their phone with them. BUY HERE 

 

BONUS: This fitness gift idea is something truly special. It’s called the Oura Ring and it looks like a regular ring band, BUT…it’s definitely more than that. The inlaid sensors gives you insightful data that will help you improve your overall health – from sleep to performance analytics, you’ll definitely want to add this to the gift list.
