1. UGG NEON MATCHING SET
Sweatshirt, biker shorts, and neon all combined into one? Sign me up! I couldn’t resist buying this set straight from my own gift guide. I’m crazy into the neon trend, and also love to style hoodies under jackets for a layered fall ‘fit, so this hoodie is high up on my list. Of course I’m wearing this whole set for workouts and runs on cold mornings, too! It’s crazy comfortable, movable, and who doesn’t love a trendy matching set? I have a size XS in the shorts and a S in the hoodie, because I love them a little bit oversized.
2. CARBON 38 BIKER SHORTS SET
If the fitness-lover in your life doesn’t have a pair of biker shorts yet, this is a must! If you are not convinced yet, check out this blog post all about the biker shorts trend. They are versatile, comfy, and breathable for every kind of workout from yoga to running to strength training. I personally love wearing mine for workouts, and styling them with leather jackets or blazers for everyday. A great fitness gift idea is this Carbon38 biker shorts and sports bra set, I am wearing size XS! I also have Lululemon biker shorts that come with a side pocket for your phone.
3. LULULEMON BASEBALL CAP
Typically I’m recommending hats as the cherry-on-top stylish accessory for every outfit, and athleisure looks are no exception. A baseball cap like this one from Lululemon adds that extra touch to your workout look, plus they’re just practical! It’s a flattering on style on pretty much everybody, so you really can’t go wrong with this practical, stylish fitness gift!
4. GOLDSHEEP WORKOUT SET
One of the best parts about staying active is an opportunity to wear cute workout outfits–which is almost half of the fun And every time I put cute new outfit I break my record!! I have been wearing Goldsheep activewear for years and I never stop talking about how great the sets are. They are stretchy and flexible (which I need for my ashtanga practice), supportive, super durable quality that holds up, and of course the adorable patterns are one-of-a-kind. And for athleisure lovers like me, cute workout sets double as an outfit. Use promo code TKOGAN15 for 15% off!
5. POM BEANIE
Beanies are the perfect accessory to complete fall cute outfit! They just make the cutest street look, am I right? And I know I’m not the only one. Red is one of the bold color trends that are taking over 2020, but this pom beanie is available in 5 colors. Did I mention it’s cashmere for only $59?!
I have been wearing this style for years and so is every single member of my family. Guys seriously, these frames they look great on everyone! The shape is flattering on pretty much every face shape. Plus who doesn’t want to get new Ray Bans?
7. RUNNING SNEAKERS
Workout sneakers should be updated pretty regularly, so this makes the perfect fitness gift for the runner in your life! I’m really loving pink for fall, especially since it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pink and neon is having such moment now! Plus a pop of color is an instant energy boost… I have been wearing Nike for years, it’s a perfect holiday gift!
Every athlete (especially in Chicago winters) needs a warm coat to get them through those outdoor runs and treks to the gym. A puffer coat is always the warmest style of coat you can get, and it looks great with athletic leggings, sneakers, and layered with a hoodie. Luckily there are always hundreds of cute puffer options since they are so classic! Something about metallic styles like this one from SAM are so festive, very street-style-eseque, and all around cool.
9. APPLE WATCH + AIRPODS
The Apple watch and AirPods are the most popular fitness gift ideas! For runners and all kinds of athletes, this is a life-changer. When I bought my first Apple Watch and AirPods back in July I stared running consistently! Knowing your speed, record, heart rate and so much is a huge measurement tool and motivation. And of course it has functions like texting, calling, and other apps, so you can leave your phone and go running hands-free. I personally almost never take mine off!
AirPods are just so useful! We all know the story of working out, moving around a ton, and getting tangled and restricted by wired headphones. Those days are over, with the wireless charging AirPods that have touch controls and bluetooth capabilities. With this combo of Apple Watch and AirPods, your workouts will change for the better and I swear you’ll never go back!
10. SHOPCONFIDENCE TANK
An athlete can never have enough workout tanks, and I can’t recommend Shop Confidence enough. They are a Black-owned local Chicago brand that specializes in workout gear and inspiring messages. Seriously they are all about empowerment, feminism, confidence, and spreading messages of love! I have this red “Fempower” tank and I always get asked about it. I wear size XS.
