Athletes are very simple to shop for. They love clothes and any new gadget that is going to increase their performance. Here is a foolproof holiday shopping list:
There are always new types of running shoes and cleats coming out and everyone wants the new and best. Plus no one can have too many shoes.
2. Apple Watch Nike+
You can stream music, apps and receive notifications without your phone. It is also waterproof for swimming or just sweating.
3. Leggings/ Joggers
Leggings and joggers have become very popular for working out and also as a sporty look, fashionwise. There are many different styles that go for any indoor/outdoor occasion.
4. Gift cards
The easiest way to not disappoint with a gift is a gift card to any of their favorite stores. Obvious stores to consider if you do not know their favorites are Dick’s, Nike, Academy Sports, Hibbett Sports, etc.
Every sports fan or athlete needs a good hat. One that has their favorite team logo or at least the colors. Hats are great to put on over sweaty hair or to shade the sun while outside.
6. Water Bottle
Every athlete needs a water bottle and there are some very good ones on the market. Water can stay cold for hours/days in recent models, which is super helpful if they are outside for a while.
7. Phone armbands
A necessity to running is music but no one wants to hold their phone while running so this armband is a super helpful tool for holding the phone for the runner.
Athletes usually follow other sports teams and there is something about getting to see a game in person rather than on TV. Getting tickets to your significant other’s favorite team’s game would probably make you the best girlfriend/boyfriend ever.
