It’s that time of year to buckle down and finish your holiday shopping. Choosing gifts for men can be extremely difficult, even if you’ve been married to your man for decades. A lot of women will end up supplementing gifts for their men with holiday sweets like candy, cookies, and other winter comfort foods; but for women who share their lives with physically active and fit men, those gifts aren’t quite right.
Fortunately, there is a wide range of spectacular gifts made especially for physically active husbands like yours. These gifts are practical and thoughtful, and will show your husband just how closely you pay attention, all year long, to the activities that interest him.
1. Gym Membership
In the wintertime, depending on where you live, it is harder to get outside and exercise as you did during the warmer months. A gym membership is the ideal gift for your fitness buff. Just in time for New Years resolutions, a gym membership is a great way to show you are supportive of your partner’s goals to get in shape.
2. Running/Workout Shoes
Good shoes are absolutely necessary for getting in shape. Having proper workout footwear helps prevent injury while exercising. Whether your husband spends time at the gym or jogging around the neighborhood, the right kind of sneaker with ample support can make all the difference in workout comfort.
3. Golf Shoe Bag
A golf shoe bag is something many people wouldn’t think of to give as a gift; however, for the avid golf player, this would be an ideal addition to their gear collection. Golf greens can get muddy, and there are fewer things worse than throwing wet, dirty golf shoes in with the rest of your clothes in a gym bag; or worse yet, tossing them into the backseat of the car. A good golf shoe bag has vents and a divider that separates the shoes allowing for airflow to dry and air out each shoe quickly and efficiently. It’s the perfect gift for a man who loves to play golf frequently. I found a great one here for my husband a few years ago – he uses it for every round!
4. Free Weight Set
If you want to get your man a gift that he can use from the comfort of your home, a free weight set is perfect. He can get all of the benefits of weight lifting in a private setting, without having to wait to use the weights he needs at the gym. Even if he does frequent the gym, free weights at home will also allow him to do a little bit more exercising whenever he sees fit.
5. Touchscreen Friendly Gloves
If your man likes to take music on a walk or run, touchscreen friendly gloves will come in handy during colder months. With these gloves, flipping through playlists on a touchscreen device such as a smartphone or iPod can be done flawlessly.
Finding the perfect gift for the fit, active man in your life can be difficult. But if you keep his activities and interests in mind, you’ll be able to find the ideal gift he will enjoy for years to come! Good Luck!
