Whether you have a friend who is a fitness guru or one that has told you they want to get into fitness, gifting someone a fitness gift is a perfect idea.

If they have their own workout space at home or are just starting to build their own space or fitness wardrobe, fitness gift guides like this one have loads of ideas to choose from.

These gifts can help your friends and family keep up their gym routines, build their home gyms, turn their office desk into a workout machine, and help them read up on their favorite sport. 

Gift your fitness lover friend an apple watch or gift your fitness freak friend a deep tissue muscle massager.

Remember, it's smarter to order sooner than later if you want your gifts to arrive before Christmas, so make sure you order your presents by December 15 or early due to the global supply chain crisis.
