In need of a Valentines gift for your gal pal? Your fitness buddies should be easy to buy for as they typically like to try new catchy products that can improve their training, make them feel good, or look fabulous. I sure do! Here a few gift ideas for your “Galentines” soiree. I decided to put together this list of my favorite items to make it easy. These are fun products that I have, and have either given to my girlfriends, clients or my fitness pals in the past.
Now some of these products have been sent to me, but I would never discuss anything that I don’t believe in or use. I think you will find this list quite comprehensive and fun to browse through too!
The Oh Ball – This is such a great product for improving plantar fascitis, soothing high arches, and reducing heel pain. Where was this when I was professional athlete across the country? (You don’t have to be a pro athlete to use this, but it is endorsed by NBA athlete Georges Niang.) The Oh Ball definitely helps with runners, dancers, exercisers, and people who have long hours on their feet. Don’t let foot pain keep you out of the game or out of commission. I have been using this for the past 2 months – and have definitely noticed a difference. As a busy mom, on the go, and on my feet often, I have found relief. Since I tore my right plantar fascia, and my left one was tight for many moons, this helps relieve those achey days. (Use LauraFitness15 for your 15% discount)
Exercise Bands – These are the best! Great for a home workout, gym, or when you travel so you can still get a workout. Since these barely weigh anything they are easy to keep in your athletic bag or packed in your suitcase. But remember these only work when you use them! Heehee! Here’s an easy link to shop.
Fashionable Workout Bag – GoDashDot.com has the best looking athleisure bags out there. There are plenty of pockets for shoes, change of clothes, yoga mat, snacks, computer, etc. I even use it for my stylish diaper bag when out and about with the boys. The Infinity Bag even comes with a separate smaller bag that you can use as a purse. I love the details on the bag, the multitude of compartments, and the “give back” component of this female owned company. (Use code LauraMak15 to save 15% off your purchase)
Fresh Candles – Chessapeake Bay – These are some of my favorites – who doesn’t love “Peace & Tranquility” after a busy day? These candles are soy wax with essential oils that scent them. You can buy one at a time or a bundle. Here are some of the other options: Joy & Laughter, Courage & Wisdom, Strength & Energy, Focus & Patience, just to name a few.
Stylish Headband – These are great! Keep those loose hairs out of your face and get them back so you can stay focused on what you need to do, and well. . . look great while doing it! The perfect headband for yoga, running, dance, hiking, cycling, or weight training, You can wear this headband six different ways. There are plenty of color options so you can get your friend her favorite color(s) and not just yours! 🙂 I also like that this one is microbial, moisture sweat wicking, and lightweight. Most importantly, it stays on too! Check out the variety of color choices here.
Theo’s Chocolate – Need I say more? I do love this one because it is made here in Seattle – and YES, I have enjoyed the chocolate TASTING tour at the downtown Seattle location. It was a delightful way to indulge in amazing chocolate. This is a special favorite in our family. It is one of few chocolates that my mother in law can have because it does not have soy (or soy lecithin) in it – which is not good for breast cancer survivors. So we ALL enjoy a splurge on this! Try this fun flavor Black Rice Quinoa Crunch – Dark Chocolate – Mmm good!
Hope you enjoy these fun gift giving ideas. These gifts will be the highlight of your Galentines. What a wonderful way to celebrate an evening with girlfriends.
