Great Christmas Gift Ideas for Family and Friends

The festive season is fast approaching and before we know it we’ll be frantically searching for those last minute gifts to get for family and friends. The best gifts to give are often the ones around fitness and health as many start shifting their mindset to “New Year, New Me”. 

We’ve put together a list of our top picks that we know will be a hit whether as a Secret Santa gift, stocking filler or a special gift for a loved one.



Gifts that bring health benefits are always a popular choice and none are better than those to encourage a friend or family member to be more active by simply walking more each day? Step Counters are a great gift because they are inexpensive but highly effective. Being able to track your steps and see your progress on the go keeps you aware of how active you are throughout the day.

Step Counters and Pedometers are ideal for those not wanting to connect to smartphones or apps and can be ready to use right away with no setup required. The 3DFitBud Simple Step Counter is a popular choice for all members of the family.




Personal Safety Alarms are becoming increasingly popular as vulnerable people, women in particular, look at non-violent ways of keeping themselves safe. As the winter nights draw in, it can be intimidating walking by yourself in the dark, whether home from school, for a workout or back from the shops. Keeping a Safety Alarm on your person will give you further peace of mind knowing that you can easily draw attention to yourself at the pull of a pin should you end up in an uncomfortable situation.




Power Resistance Bands come in a range of tension levels to cover an enormous range of exercises and workouts. These are a great addition to any gym enthusiast’s bag or for those who love working out from home. Resistance bands work by offering a resistance which requires force that works your muscles much like free weights or machines do. Resistance Bands are proven to help you build muscle and gain strength and are an excellent replacement to weights as they take up very little space. Adding these as a stocking filler is sure to please a family member or friend. 




Fabric Bands or commonly known as Booty Bands, are hugely popular amongst women as they are extremely effective in glute and leg activation exercises to help shape your booty (hence the popular name for them) and get your lower body looking toned and stronger. 

Fabric Bands contain latex strips on the inside of the bands which helps keep them in place so you never have to worry about them rolling up your legs during your workouts. The 3DActive Fabric Bands come in a set of 3 bands varying in resistance levels to help cover a wide range of lower and even upper body exercises. 



Microfiber Towels can be used in a variety of ways. Due to the finer fabric they are extremely compact and are ideal for gym bags, camping trips, hiking or general travel. They are a great gift idea because of how often and the ways in which they can be used. The microfiber fabric is highly absorbent so can soak up moisture or sweat easily and they dry quickly making it ideal for travel. Larger size microfiber towels can also be used to dry off after a shower or as a beach towel.
