By: Dominique Michelle Astorino

‘Tis the season! Make your list, check it twice, and refer back here to choose from some of our favorite picks in nearly every category of fitness, health, and wellness. There’s a lot of stuff out there in the wellness world, so we’ve done our best to curate some beautiful gifts that will make everyone on your list happy (even if that’s just yourself — no judgment). From budget finds at $10 to luxurious splurges at $1,000, we guarantee you’ll find something epic to surprise someone you love who’s been very good this year. After all, the gift of health is priceless. 

Top Wellness Gifts For Women

When you’re shopping for the wellness-obsessed woman in your life, you’ve got a LOT of options to weed through. We’ve picked some of the best options you can find, so you don’t have to look so hard. 

Smudge Astro Spritz ($35)

An astro-inspired gift for your fiery Aries or devoted Virgo. This room spray uses a naturally-fragranced blend of Palo Santo, petitgrain, cinnamon, tulsi, and rose water to create a dreamy aromatherapy setting in your home. Each of the 12 spritzes has a curated crystal collection (for instance, Capricorn’s has blue kyanite, citrine, and clear quartz), so it’s a custom gift based on your loved one’s sun sign. And if we’re turning our homes into wellness studios, you might as well pull out all the stops, right? Spritz a little of this before a yoga or meditation session and let the good times roll. 

Jenny Patinkin Rose Quartz Body Roller ($125)

For a luxurious friend who needs some relaxation, muscular release, and lymphatic drainage; it’s like a jumbo version of the rose quartz roller for your face. Harness the power of heart-chakra-clearing rose quartz with lymph clearing massage. 

InstaNatural Vitamin C Moisturizer ($20) 

Sustainable, natural beauty is one of our favorite areas of wellness right now. After all, your skin is your largest organ! This vitamin C moisturizer is made with ingredients like Jojoba Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil, and Argan Oil to help nourish dry skin during the colder months. Add this to your evening routine with this rejuvenating rest meditation, and you’ll get some legitimate beauty sleep. 

APL TechLoom Bliss Sneaker ($200) 

These sneakers are just so. darn. comfortable. The upper is a meshy, sock-like, breathable slip-on style; the outsole is flexible yet cushioned and supportive, and the strap over the top keeps your foot exactly where it needs to be. Plus… they’re GORGEOUS.

Yogi Bare Yoga Block ($13) 

For the new at-home yogi, give them a little boost (and some extra stability) with this tie-dye yoga block. Sturdy yet soft, stylish yet practical, this makes an awesome fitness gift under $15. 

Hoka One One Clifton 7 ($130)

Few things get us more excited to do another workout as much as a great new fitness outfit (including sneakers!). If you want to inspire someone in your life to tackle their healthy living goals, consider giving the gift of a new pair of workout shoes. 

Top Wellness Gifts For Men 

Forget the old trope that guys are hard to shop for — it’s never been easier with this guide of fitness and wellness-inspired gifts.

Burst Oral Care COD Electric Toothbrush ($99)  

Oral health and video games collide in an unexpected collaboration for your favorite health-conscious gamer. A feel-good, do-good bonus: 20% of the proceeds from this collection will be donated to The Call of Duty Endowment in support of US military veterans.

Yeti Roadie 24 Hard Cooler ($199) 

A Yeti cooler is totally a knock-it-out-of-the-park gift for the guy in your life. This year, we think the sagebrush green is such a stylish color choice — and a nice neutral that gives a break from the standard white or tan. Pack this full of healthy snacks and cold drinks for an outdoor hike or adventure while you stay active this winter. 

Merrell Hut Moc Cozy ($80) 

An après-ski shoe that’s as comfortable and warm as it is essential. Like hot cocoa, but for your feet. Breathable, comfortable, and made with an EVA outsole that’ll grip the ground so you can feel stable.

Beats by Dre Powerbeats Pro ($250) 

For the guy who wants to work out at 5 am before the rest of the house is up, give him these super secure wire-free headphones to get really into his workout playlist (or, of course, guided workout video on FitOn). Everyone else can keep sleeping peacefully while he breaks a sweat.

Element Case Black Ops Apple Watch Band ($200) 

This is the ultimate watch protection to help keep that fitness tracker safe during workouts.

ODLO Men’s Blackcomb Baselayer Top ($108) 

For when the weather outside is frightful, but the prospect of exercising is so delightful. This piece is slim fit for warmth but designed with specific ventilation zones and bacteria-fighting “ZeroScent” technology fabric so that you can stay fresh while you sweat.

FitOn Trainer Favorites

From Cassie Ho’s Popflex brand to Christine Bullock’s Kayo Body Care line, we’re sharing some of our favorite FitOn trainer items that make ideal holiday wellness gifts.

Popflex Yoga Mat in Retro Rainbow ($59) 

FitOn trainer Cassey Ho’s Popflex yoga mats are amazing, and we’re loving this retro rainbow mat! These mats come in so many colorful options, and they are ultra-absorbent and anti-slip, checking off all of the yoga mat boxes. Gift one of these mats to a fellow yoga or Pilates lover or give it a test yourself, and try a sweaty Pilates class with Cassey using your brand new mat. 

Popflex Capricorn Crossover Leggings ($58)

Who doesn’t love a new pair of leggings to spice up their fitness wardrobe? New activewear is always a great way to boost that motivation to press play on that workout, and we LOVE these Popflex Capricorn Crossover Leggings. They are both flattering and comfortable, which is a total workout legging win.  

Kayo Concentrated Firming Serum ($46)

FitOn trainer Christine Bullock’s Kayo brand is packed full of amazing skincare products, and we absolutely love this Concentrated Firming Serum. It’s made with ingredients like Kayo omega oil blend, hyaluronic acid, and Kayo botanical firming complex, making it the ultimate total body serum to add to your holiday wish list. 

Kayo Body Sculpting Gua Sha Comb ($36) 

The lymphatic drainage massage trend hasn’t slowed down; in fact, it’s only making way for other traditional eastern practices like the Chinese Gua Sha facial. Learn some DIY facial techniques with this beautiful Kayo Gua Shah comb. Bonus tip — pair it with the Kayo Concentrated Firming Serum. 

Kayo Stress Support ($50)

This year has brought on tons of stress, and we’re all about supporting our wellness routines with some added self-care and stress support. We’re loving this Kayo Stress Supporting supplement, made with adaptogens, mushrooms, and amino acids. 

Theragun Pro ($449, normally $599) 

If you’re taking recovery really seriously this year, this is the ultimate gift. After an ultra tough HIIT or strength workout, use this tool to get some deep muscle release (on a professional level). 

P.S. — FitOn trainers Kenta Seki and Caroline Pearce also swear by their massage guns! 

Unique Gift Picks

A little less obvious, with a lot of wow-factor — if you’re into giving someone a big surprise, this list is for you. 

Moon Dweller Astro Calendar-Journal 2021 ($28) 

If you’ve ever thought about how certain moon phases could impact your workouts, meditations, self-care practices, and areas of your body, then boy oh boy, do we have the journal for you. This Moon Dweller calendar-journal hybrid not only gives you a crash course in practical, applicable astrology (that even beginners can follow), but also guides you through every week of the year as your own personal astrologer. 

Aquach Cold Brew Coffee Maker ($33) 

Whether you’re playing Santa for yourself or helping someone you love take on the day with more gusto in 2021, this cold brew coffee maker is a must-have. 

Welleum Digital Detox Pouch ($45) 

If you know someone in desperate need of a digital detox, this cute little pouch could be a push in the right direction. Perhaps having something solid and tactile to create a visible boundary will help them start to create mental boundaries with tech and work. At the very least, it’s adorable.

Brava Smart Oven ($995, originally $1,095) 

You can’t talk about unique gifts without mentioning the Brava, i.e., the futuristic smart oven that fits on your counter (and heats up to 500º in under a second!). If healthy cooking has felt daunting, consider that this machine will roast vegetables and cook up tender, flaky fish — ON ONE PAN — in under eight minutes.

JS Health X FitOn Protein Powder ($34.99)

Whether you need a new protein powder or you know someone who could use a bit of an upgrade to their post-workout shake routine, consider JS Health X FitOn protein. This powder is made with plant-based protein and probiotics and is free from added sugars, preservatives, and fillers. Choose between cinnamon roll or cookies and cream to make your smoothies and shakes taste like dessert.

ProsourceFit Acupressure Mat ($22)

Self-care started as a commercial trend but taught us all that we really do need to take better care of ourselves every single day. Consider gifting yourself an acupressure mat or give it to a loved one to make a daily act of self-care that much more possible.  

Wellness Stocking Stuffers

Under thirty bucks, and fits in a stocking (even a very little stocking). Perfect for that extra somethin-somethin, or for an under-$30 secret Santa. 

Theraderm Anti-Aging Lip Complex ($30) 

While you’re thinking about skin health, consider your lips, too. This complex is like a grown-up version of Juicy Tubes (millennials, where you at?) that uses avocado oil and vitamin E as well as a wrinkle-defying peptide to keep your pucker plump and hydrated all winter long. 

Sakara Coconut Praline Granola ($16) 

A healthy snack doesn’t really sound like a great stocking stuffer until you hear the words “coconut” and “praline.” This limited-edition Sakara snack comes out once a year (at the holidays) and tends to fly off the shelves, so get yours while you still can.

TIEM Low-Cut Spin Socks ($10) 

Whether they’re going for a spin on their new stationary bike, or just like a nice cushioned sock that doesn’t cramp their sneaker style, these strategically padded, ultra-soft socks are an amazing gift for just ten bucks.

The Confidence Co Digestive Enzyme Complex ($30) 

To help your favorite person have their cake and digest it, too. But seriously, add this to the probiotic regimen, and you’ve got yourself all the digestive support you need… so bring on the eggnog! 

David’s Tea Cold Survival Tea Sampler ($25) 

Wellness teas for a sore throat, cold, headache, and sleep-boosting; what more could you want? The artisans at David’s Tea curated this beautiful collection of some of their best-selling wellness blends to deliver a perfect package of all-natural health support. And, of course, they’re all delicious.

Four Sigmatic Adaptogen Coffee ($15)

2020 was not kind to our cortisol levels. Help your loved ones (and yourself) find a little more serenity in the new year. This adaptogen coffee makes the perfect wellness gift for the coffee lovers in your life. 

Happy Holidays!
