Well-vetted gift ideas for the fitness junkies on your list

Athletes and outdoor enthusiasts can be notoriously hard to buy for when it comes to holiday gifts. We take our gear seriously, we use it and rely on it, so a token gesture just won’t do. Lucky for you, we’ve got some ideas. We asked the Olivers teams to show us their gift lists. From our own best-sellers to the stuff we hope to unwrap this season - there’s something here for every fitness junkie on your list.

A Quality Jump Rope

One of the best pieces of at-home fitness gear. And this rugged, easy-to-grip model is the official rope used by Team USA boxing and the US Judo team.

Rx Smart Gear Black Ops rope, $47 

David, Founder: All Over Shorts

“The updated version of the short that started it all for us remains my weekend go-to short.”

All Over Shorts, $68

Harrison, Digital Marketing Manager: Field Cap

“It feels like your favorite broken-in hat right out of the box. It comes in four different colors and you can never have too many hats, right?”

Cotton twill field cap, $45

Lauren, Production Manager: Alpine Thermal

“This is the perfect piece to gift for those living in fickle southern California weather - it can be worn alone or layered as needed.”

Alpine Thermal long sleeve, $88 

A Mini Massage Gun

Anyone who values their post-workout recovery will appreciate a massage gun. This three-speed Mini is way more affordable than past versions, but the pocket-size tool still delivers the same soothing results.

Theragun mini, $199

Tamar, Art Director: Classic Sweatpant

“These are the perfect gift for my husband, since he’ll be spending time this holiday season cozy at home.”

Classic sweatpant, $128

Gabe, Brand Marketing Associate: Passage Pant

“These pants are perfect for getting around in style and comfort. Great for everything from a bike ride to an office meeting, I love the versatility.”

Passage Pant, $148

Whitney, Customer Experience and Operations: Porter Hoodie

"I guarantee your guy has an old hoodie in his closet that he bums around the house in, but the 100% Merino Porter Hoodie is a more contemporary version of his old favorite and just as cozy and comfortable. It's the gift that he'd love to get but never thought to buy for himself.”

Porter hoodie, $168

Workout-Ready Earbuds

These rugged waterproof buds offer five hours of music per charge, plus an extra 20 hours in the low-profile case. But what we really think is cool is the “bionic hearing” feature with TalkThru technology allowing you to hear your surroundings and chat with a workout partner while still rocking out.

UA True Wireless Flash X, $169.95 / $99.95

Cory, Editorial Director: Convoy Tee

“This is one of my favorite tees. And it seems like nearly every time I wear it - working out, traveling and once under a jacket during a meeting - I’m asked about who makes it. So I’ll be gifting it to a few of my friends this year to spread the love.”

Convoy tee, $78

Robbie, Product Designer: Classic Pullover

“The perfect four-season sweatshirt that will fast become a wardrobe staple. Comfort without compromising style.”

Classic pullover, $138 

Amanda, Graphic Designer: Convoy Long Sleeve Henley

“You really can’t beat the variety of colors or the softness of this performance merino. The perfect gift for the guy who wants to look polished, but without the extra effort.”

Convoy long sleeve henley, $108

A Better Blender Bottle

Unlike other protein shakers, Shakesphere shaker tumblers don’t use a mixing ball or mesh grid to mix your ingredients. Instead, the patented capsule shape does the mixing by continually sending your ingredients around the capsule without getting stuck in corners.

ShakeSphere tumbler, $21.99

* FYI: Experts anticipate a “shipageddon” in the United States, delays and chaos as parcel companies already stretched thin tackle a surge in holiday packages. Be sure to order early.
