It’s the most wonderful time of the year… but not necessarily the most health conscious. Which is why it’s also a great time to treat your family and friends to something that will benefit them. From stocking stuffers, to larger gifts for those on the Nice List – here’s my Osteo’s Christmas Gift Guide. What’s even better is that this post is shoppable.

These low-cost presents are perfect to get someone into the healthy habit of stretching for the New Year.
Fascia Release Balls £16.95
Use these to tease out muscle tightness in your hands, feet, forearms and upper back.
Foam Roller £12.93
Better for the bigger muscles in the legs. If you know a runner, footballer or cyclist – this could be the perfect gift for them!
Yoga Strap £14.66
The budding yogi in your life could benefit from a yoga strap to help them build towards more complicated poses and binds.
Medium Range Gifts
These gifts range between £20.00 and £50.00, and are perfect for the health-conscious person.
Madeleine Shaw has a few different gorgeous recipe books to choose from; but A Year of Beautiful Eating is an easy way to get into a healthier way of cooking. Starters, mains, deserts, and food for sharing with friends – I’d be hoping for a dinner invitation from whoever I gift this one to!
Sennheiser Earbuds £44.99
If you know someone who enjoys music with their work out – why not get them a set of new earbuds to take with them to the gym? These in-ear buds from Sennheiser have great sound technology, and a good fit in-ear, so they don’t come out when you’re running.
NIKE Men’s Compression Top £31.99
Finding the motivation to work out when it’s cold is really difficult. These compression tops from NIKE are great to layer under your existing exercise wardrobe, to keep the cold out on outdoor workouts.
The NICE LIST
Presents for someone who has been very very good this year!
Lululemon Wunder Under Pants £108.00
These leggings are pricey, but they are honestly the best. The wear amazingly, wash like a dream, and if you’re buying a gift for someone who is more often in their gym gear than out of it, they’ll definitely be grateful!
Pilates Lounge 20 Class Pass £170.00
With so many classes to try, a 20 class pass at Pilates Lounge could be the gateway to their next healthy hobby. Pilates, Chair Pilates, TRX Pilates, Barre and Yoga; the classes here are different from those on offer at any gym in the area – so even if you’re buying for someone already working out, it’s something for them to get excited about for the New Year.
Purchasing a voucher for Personal Training might seem an odd Christmas present, but it’s perfect for those who wouldn’t treat themselves to one-to-one training normally. With Matt’s training sessions, you can double up to train with a buddy – so you can even train together in the New Year. This is a gift that combines quality time with your loved one and getting fit together.
