10 Holiday Gifts Under $30 for the Fitness Lover

You guessed it! The second installment in the Holiday Gift Guides series is here. Today we’re talking all about gifts for your fitness-loving friends. As we said yesterday, there are plenty of affordable options as long as you know where to look! I’m here to give you a few ideas on where to start, so be sure to scroll on down!

Click on each item or use the links below to shop.


1. Compression Workout Leggings | $19
Cute, comfortable, and an essential workout piece for any exercise enthusiast. (Also a staple in any college girl’s closet…you can never have enough leggings.)

2. Pizza Workout Duffel Bag | $28
Pizza might be the main motivator for my workouts, too. This bag is just the cutest, don’t you think? This cute print also comes in a water bottle design.

3. Dry Shampoo Pack | $24
Dry shampoo and a boar bristle brush is my fix to messy hair when there’s no time for a post-work out shower. It’s perfect to throw in a gym bag, and you just need a few spritzes for temporarily clean-looking hair.

4. Bluetooth Wireless Workout Headphones | $29
There’s nothing worse than having to hold your phone when you work out. These headphones are a fun color that make listening to music while working out way easier, so you can focus on your workout and not dropping your phone.

5. Spiralizer 5-Blade Vegetable Slicer | $30
Every one of my friends that owns a spiralizer is obsessed. The options are endless, and discovering new recipes for this new gadget will be your friend’s new favorite thing to do!

6. Colorful Workout Top | $18 
Another staple in any fitness lover’s wardrobe. This top comes in four colors with sweat-wicking properties. Yes, please.

7. Adidas Boyfriend Tee | $30
This top is right on point with the athleisure trend (which by the way, I love very, very much). It’ll effortlessly take your friend straight from the gym to the street with a pair of joggers and tennis shoes. This shirt also comes in a feminine pink version.

8. Palm Printed Water Bottle | $25
We all know staying hydrated is important during workouts. I love the palm print on this bottle – so fun! It’s so cute, it’d be hard not to reach for it. Plus, it can be easily spotted in your gym bag or purse.

9. Bungee Hair Rings | $8
If you haven’t tried this before, you’re missing out! I first discovered these bungee hair rings a few years ago in Asia. They work like regular hair ties except no more weird creases in your hair after you let go of your ponytail! I highly recommend getting them for a friend and buying a second set for yourself.

10. Mini Foam Roller | $14
This mini foam roller will be your friend’s new go-to equipment for muscle recovery and pain relief. It’s small enough to tuck away in a dorm room or spot in your car, and it comes in multiple colors.
