A true fitness fiend can never have enough equipment and gadgets to support their healthy habits. So why not be a true enabler by gifting them with some of the best gear this season? Whether you're shopping for a gym rat or just your friend who hates to change out of their yoga pants (who said that?), here are some of my favorite stay fit gifts...

The 12 Days of Holiday Gift Guides... Day 6: The Homebody

Ooh, I looooove today's gift guides so much I feel cozy just looking at them! One of my favorite things ever is the moment in my day when I change from my normal human shoes to my ridiculous furry slippers and crawl under a blanket. I love it so much that the second I transform into my "inside" persona, I can literally feel my brain switch to its happiest place. And the funny thing about it all is that as much as I love being in this comfort zone, my lounge clothes are some of the rattiest specimens the world will never see. I think when you're trying to stay on a budget, it's just too hard to rationalize spending on things like eye masks or bath truffles when they certainly can't be considered necessities. That's why I'm crazy about the idea of giving really luxe comfort items as gifts. They're so relaxing and yet also entirely indulgent, and really isn't that exactly what a great gift should be?

So now I really need to know, would you ever buy your guy a onesie? I'm voting yes, if only for my own comedic entertainment. Tell me what you think in the comments!

And tomorrow we're switching gears and talking gift ideas for the athletes, so don't miss it!

The 12 Days of Holiday Gift Guides... Day 1: The Trendsetter

You guys, I LIVE for holiday shopping. To me, there’s nothing better than the challenge of trying to find the perfect present for someone- something that shows how much you care about them and that also celebrates their unique personality. But perhaps you like holiday shopping a little less than I do or maybe you have a few people on your list that are just leaving you stumped. Well, I hope in that case, that I am here to help! The next 12 days will feature a new his and hers gift guide every day by personality type to help get the gift-giving ideas flowing!

Today’s gift guide is for the Trendsetter: The forward-thinking, fashion-loving, style risk-taker in your life. I think these people can be a little intimidating, because if you’re not following trends to the minute, how can you know what they might like? But really, they can also be the most fun! Here, some of my favorite ideas for the style star in your life...

I love the idea of giving fashion-lovers a really luxe designer brand in an affordable way, like the Oscar de la Renta Heart Stud Earrings or the Maison Martin Margiela Adress Book Key Ring. And when in doubt, fast-fashion mega-brands like Topshop or Zara are sure to turn up some inexpensive gems.

 

Can you see the trendsetters in your life loving these gifts?
