Holiday Gift Guide: for the Fitness Junkie



juicer // jump rope // silicone wedding rings (men + women) // juice bottles // dumbells // slam ball // socks // yoga mat // fitbit // smart scale

One of the things I love about this time of year is how motivated I get to set new fitness goals. It’s probably mostly habit, because the new year is right around he corner and fitness is always one of my resolutions. But I also really enjoy giving and receiving fitness-related gifts that make those fitness goals feel more attainable.

Most of the items above are things Matt and I currently own and use. I’d recommend certain things like free weights, a yoga mat and jump rope to anyone because, regardless of whether you prefer to work out at a gym, having a few things at home when you don’t have time or even space to get a full workout in can allow you to still make progress and/or maintain what you’ve achieved so far. Sometimes I just want to do a few arm lifts and abs at home in front of the mirror. Doing something always feels better than doing nothing.

Since Matt and I are avid Fitbit wearers, we love having our Fitbit Aria scale because it syncs with the Fitbit and allows you to track your weight loss/gain and body fat percentage. We both have this latest Fitbit and like how it can sync to your phone to receive text notifications and control your music. You can also switch out different watch bands.

Lastly, one month after Benjamin was born I bought this juicer and these juice bottles and did a 5-day juice cleanse. You may remember this blog post–these documentaries got me really into eating whole, natural foods, and I love how much easier it is to eat more of the right foods (fruits and vegetables) when you juice them. Check out the documentaries if you haven’t already. They will really change the way you think about food.

Oh yeah, we also wear these silicone wedding rings whenever we work out. I highly recommend them and they make great stocking stuffers!

Hope this roundup gives you some new ideas! Below are more gift ideas (including CLOTHES!) for the fitness junkie in your life…

3 Reasons You Need a Plaid Blanket Scarf











scarf: asos {old – last worn here, here + here; identical style here!} | top: daisy love boutique c/o {I’m wearing a small} | navy leggings: daisy love boutique c/o {I’m wearing size small} | boots: jcrew {old; love this sale pair!} | bag: tory burch {similar style herehere} | glasses: prada | watch: michael kors | lips: ‘red revival’ by maybelline

I’ve had this plaid blanket scarf for more than two years now and every time I bring it out I get questions about it. It’s that good. And you can find them at really affordable prices, so it’s worth the purchase even when you feel you need a break from all the shopping (wait, did I just say that?). But really, Black Friday and Cyber Week can make us all a little crazy.

Here are 3 more reasons you need a plaid blanket scarf…

1) They’re bulky for a reason #warmth

2) You’ll get all the compliments #truth

3) What’s more festive than plaid? #nada

Holiday Gift Guide: for the Decor Lover



monogram mugs // wood coasters // candle // wall art // matches // walls need love easy stripe wallpaper // beachcomber basket // humble weave throw // gray rug // leather accent chair // wire milk crate // faux fur pillow

 I have had decor on my mind non-stop getting ready for our move. We don’t have a huge space, so I’m even more mindful of choosing meaningful decor items, both functional and aesthetically pleasing. ;) The above items are pieces I’ve either already purchased or am planning to, and I think would make great gifts this holiday.

I love my Anthro monogram mug (it’s so photogenic!). I have this exact throw from Humble Weave and it’s so luxurious and cozy. The knit fabric is really soft and the design would look perfect draped over a sofa or accent chair. I’m also researching these beachcomber baskets so we can store some of our cozy blankets in the living room for easy access on movie night.

I also own this versatile wire milk crate (I actually use it for diapers in Benjamin’s nursery). Also used in Benjamin’s nursery is this Walls Need Love Easy Stripe removable wallpaper (see my post on the nursery design here). I love Walls Need Love products because they’re super easy to apply and they’re not permanent, so you can switch up your wallpaper or wall decals anytime you want!

Lastly, I sleep with this faux fur pillow and it is a must-have!

If you have a friend or family member who loves home decor, I hope this gift guide gives you some fresh ideas to make your hunt for the perfect gift a little easier. For more gift ideas, see my gift guides for Baby, Him, Her, and stay tuned for more!
