    1. A 10-pack of refreshing body wipes that'll make the perfect stocking stuffer for the person who'll travel to some far-flung outdoor boot camp class or hike where there isn't a shower stocked with fancy products to wash up afterward.

    These individually wrapped, biodegradable wipes are more or less a shower in a wipe. They're also alcohol-free, and hypoallergenic!

    Promising review: "I love these! They smell great, are wet enough and large enough to easily use on my whole body, and most importantly, they made me feel very clean while I camped over three days." β€”Candice Zuniga

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99.

    2. A 12-piece Nutribullet system to help lighten the work-load of the person who ~just can't~ until they've had their morning smoothie.

    Includes power base, 1 tall cup, 2 short cups, 1 flat blade and 1 emulsifying blade, 2 re-sealable lids, pocket nutritionist and manual with recipes. Has a high-torque power base and 600-watt motor.

    Promising review: "Got this for my tennis player teenage son so he can fix himself a smoothie after practice. Gotta say it's the best smoothie maker I've ever used and I use it all the time, too. Completely foolproof (even for a teenager), put the stuff in and give it a twist and you have a smoothie in about 10-20 seconds. Powerful enough to crush ice or process frozen fruit. The parts screw together easily, even if you're a kid or your hands are a little wet or something. Easy to clean up, in fact we usually just rinse things out and wash them every second or third usage. There seems to be some kind of coating on the plastic to keep them clean so we hand wash everything, which I think also helps to keep the blades sharp." β€”Uncle Long Hair

    Get them from Amazon for $59.99.

    3. A compact gym bag cool enough to tote around wherever they damn well please.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.75+ (20 color combos).

    4. A crystal elixir water bottle as the glitziest accessory possible when it comes to sustaining their stellar hydration habit.

    Get it from Free People for $84 (available in four crystals).

    5. Or a sturdy glass water bottle whose BPA-free construction and soft silicone sleeve will keep it in heavy rotation for years to come.

    I thought [in a Jerry Seinfeld voice] "What's the deal with bkr water bottles?" until I picked one up for free at work. Now I'm in love with mine and use it all the dang time. I've taken it on several trips and dropped it lots of times, but it's still going strong.

    Get it from Amazon for $31.59+ (check out all the color options).

    6. A Blue Apron subscription in case they like to avoid processed foods, but don't always have the time to make it to the grocery store.

    Includes farm-fresh, seasonal produce, meat with no added hormones, sustainably sourced seafood, and recipes ready for whipping up!

    Check out pricing options on Blue Apron here.

    7. Or a Foodstirs subscription if they have a *serious* sweet tooth but have a hard time tracking down organic, non-GMO baking mixes.

    I've tried several cookie mixes and they are DELISH! Tbh, you wouldn't know this stuff is any different from the taste.

    8. A four-pack of heavy-duty nylon shoe bags for organizing sneakers, golf shoes, cycling shoes, whatever, in their gym bag or car trunk without making a mess.

    Get more info here and get them a gift card here that they can put toward whatever they decide to purchase through it!

    10. A set of hand weights they won't have to awkwardly kill time doing crunches to get a turn to use.

    Includes 2-pound, 3-pound, and 5-pound sizes, and a stand. Neoprene coating allows for a secure grip.

    Get them from Amazon for $28.49.

    11. A storage belt that'll free up their paws for adorable photo opps during grueling hikes, running adventures, and more.

    This machine-washable and -dryable reflective belt has multi-access pocket openings throughout belt and no buckles to cause uncomfortable chafing.

    Promising review: "I love this thing! I was a bit skeptical when my running friends said that many of them use this to carry along water, keys, and fuel for their long runs during the summer. I thought it would slide down at the waist and be uncomfortable and that the water bottle accessories would be unwieldy. I have been proven wrong. This belt is amazing, it holds fuel, keys, cash, water bottles, and whatever else you can shove into the pockets of it. You don't even know you are wearing it because it is so comfortable. I would recommend this belt to any runner, specifically if you are running outside when it is hot." β€”Myron T

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in XS–XL, five colors).

    12. A kitchen cleaner set made of at least 97% naturally derived ingredients. This trio just may convert them from their chemical-smelling kitchen degreaser they've been using for decades and have been reluctant to give up for a natural cleaner.

    It's made of soap bark extract, a natural degreaser. Oh, and all the varieties smell SO good it should be illegal.

    Promising review: "This is the best cleaner, hand soap, and dishwashing liquid without a lot of chemicals. I first used the hand soap at my granddaughter's. I loved the way my hands smelled after washing them. I came home and ordered the trio. The Basil is my favorite." β€”bb

    Get them from Amazon for $11.97 (available in three scents).

    13. A Veggie Buds Club subscription to help picky kids get excited about a different veggie each month, leading to healthier eating habits for life!

    Each box includes arts and crafts, a growing project with seeds, cooking activities, and more! So kids will *probably* actually be excited about eating their veggies!

    Get a monthly subscription from Cratejoy for $19+.

    14. A flashy Fitbit band that'll keep theirs from looking *too much* like wearable tech.

    Promising review: "I really like these. The colors are vibrant and pretty. They are also easy to put on and remove from my Fitbit Charge 2. I like them so much that I bought two sets as gifts. I bought all sets in the small size." β€”Madeleine Penn

    Get it from Amazon for $8.90+ (available in eight varieties).

    15. A BroteinBox subscription in case their appetite for protein-heavy foods can never be satisfied.

    Includes healthy, protein-packed snacks to try throughout the month. A typical boxes include protein bars, beef or turkey jerky, protein chips, and other unique and healthy snacks. (I'm low-key obsessed with RXBars that are in this pic, in case you care.)

    Get a monthly subscription from Cratejoy for $35.99+.

    16. A reversible yoga mat that'll make an appearance on Instagram (if they're into that) and give them excellent traction (they're definitely into that).

    Reversible textured sticky non-slip surface for excellent traction. This PVC mat is free of the Phthalates DEHP, DBP, BBP, DINP, DIDP and DNOP.

    Promising review: "I'm a yoga instructor and I love Gaiam mats because they're not outrageously expensive, are a good value, and do the job you need them to do. I purchased this in December 2016 and there was NO chemical odor or problem, beyond the initial rubbery scent that dissipated within a few hours. My mat is bright, beautiful, and does everything I need it to do. I don't have a problem with slickness with this mat. However, note that this is a 5mm thickness, slightly squishier than a thinner mat. You will have to grip a little when you're in your poses. If you have a vigorous or sweaty practice, you should be on a thinner mat. Remember, you're doing the yoga, not your mat. So, yes, you do need to activate hands and feet in your poses. I recommend a 5mm thickness as a comfort for older students or anyone with minor joint issues." β€”zenfarm

    Get it from Amazon for $34.98+ (32 pattern combos) or Jet for $34.98+ (35 pattern combos).

    17. And a hot yoga towel to wick away sweat better than that conventional bath towel they've been using.

    My brother recently got into hot yoga and I bought this towel for him! (He requested one for Christmas, so it won't be a SHOCKER if he reads this before then.) This light, no-slip towel is perfect for placing over a studio mat without getting too grossed out by using a not-yours mat.

    Promising review: "Great towel. I love the texture and the size. I actually like the thinness of the towel and the suede texture. It doesn't get drenched at the end of hot yoga like microfiber towels I've tried (e.g. Yogamate), which tend to get completely drenched and soggy by the end of practice. For me the suede texture stays flat and is easier to do yoga on than a softer microfiber towel. Since it has a thinner texture, it folds very nice and compact, and slips much less frequently than other towels. Highly recommend." β€”E. Do

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in two sizes, nine colors).

    18. A Groupon gift card they can put toward trying out the latest and greatest boutique fitness classes in their area.

    OLM-Animation Studio

    Groupon is one of my fave ways to commit without *actually* committing.

    Get it from Groupon here.

    19. A SodaStream starter kit in case they basically live off of seltzer these days and want to kick their LaCroix habit.

    Includes 1 jet sparkling water maker, 1 mini CO2 carbonator (makes up to 9L of sparkling water), 1 1-liter BPA-free reusable jet carbonating bottle, and 1 60-liter mail-in rebate.

    Promising review: "Now my kids can have a healthy alternative to bottled soda. We experiment with our own recipes. No sugar or aspartame. Only wish we had ordered the larger CO2 cartridge. The starter cartridge did not last very long." β€”PC Quick

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99+ (available with or without carbonator).

    20. A gorgeous plant-based cookbook to get kids excited about eating something that isn't fast food every once in a while.

    Promising review: "What an amazing cookbook. My little 4-year-old looooves it! This is an outstanding book. He is always wanting to make something new out of 'his cookbook' I highly recommend this for anyone, no matter your diet choices." β€”Mikala Books

    Get it from Amazon for $10.56, Barnes & Noble for $8.49+, or a local bookseller through IndieBound here.

    21. A pair of Panasonic headphones for wearing while running (or other intense workouts they wouldn't want to wear their super fancy headphones during).,

    Promising review: "Compared to MANY other earbuds that I've had that cost $75, $100, $150, these sound as good as any of them. I'm astounded! I use these for running and I've attached them to my sunglasses along with my iPod Shuffle. I'VE RUN 1,500 MILES WITH THESE in the last year and a half!! I've gone through four pairs of New Balance shoes, two iPod Shuffles, three pairs of sunglasses and am on the SAME set of earbuds!! And, THEY STILL SOUND GREAT!" β€”Gene Goodell

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99+ (eight colors).

    22. And a Jane Fonda yoga DVD because I'll bet they see her as #goals. (I do!)

    Yes, she's built a fitness empire and it is still going strong!

    Promising review: "I am 70 years old and take weekly classes of yoga and tai chi. This video is a helpful alternative when I cannot attend class. The instructions are clear, the exercises are comprehensive and if you do the complete 70 minute program, you will receive an excellent workout. However, when time is limited, you can break the workouts into manageable segments and still feel energized.If you are a mature person and new to yoga then this is an excellent video to get started. Jane Fonda comes across as friendly and warm and the students are normal sized women who do not intimidate. The movements are thorough and the addition of light weights for the strength section is a plus. Highly recommended." β€”Earth Mother

    Get it from Amazon for $6.94+ or Walmart for $9.96.
