And if there’s something in there that takes your fancy, well, so much the better. You deserve a little treat too, don’t you?
Sweat in style
Stylish active wear is always going to be near the top of any gym goer’s Christmas list. And let’s face it, there’s no shortage of choice out there whether you’re buying for a gym junkie, yoga lover, marathon runner or free weights fashionista. But with so much on offer, where do you start looking for the kind of gear that stays cool even when the muscles start to burn? Easy. Go online and check out London-based ACTIVE IN STYLE, home to the world’s most fashionable activewear, yoga and workout labels.
If you’re looking for an ideal gift for the yoga bunny in your life, there’s one piece of equipment they are always going to need. That’s right, a mat. Sure, they probably already have one. But do they have the one? Limited editions, colourful prints and trendy labels all offer eye-catching designs with real, er-hum, mattitude (sorry). Looks aside, the key elements of a great mat are tight grip, soft foam and easy storage. All of which the Manuka Eco Luxury yoga mat has in spades. Unparalleled in comfort and cushioning, it’ s velvety to the touch, made to last and also super lightweight so Santa will barely know he’s carrying it.
Every fitness fanatic knows that staying hydrated is one of the most important parts of staying in shape. Buying a plastic bottle of water each time isn’t great for the environment while reusing the same one isn’t great for your health. The answer? A stainless steel vacuum insulated water bottle from S’well. Their beautifully-crafted high-end designer bottles not only look great but also do good, with a vast array of innovative sizes, shapes and styles – including a new limited edition collection with Swarovski® Crystals guaranteed to stand out as you work out.
