If you have loved ones who prioritize travel as well as health and fitness, give them a gift that will help them achieve their goals along the way. After all, just because you’re traveling doesn’t mean you have to give up your routines. Much of the gear in this guide is also made with durability in mind, so you can feel good about your purchases. Whether the people in your life like to swim, run, lift weights or take long walks, these are the coolest fitness gifts for travelers.
New equipment for the new year
Goal Five puts women and female bodies first, creating performance apparel that not only creates space for women, but also encourages equal playing time on the pitch. Partnerships include Football Without Borders and Moving the Goalposts. For Valentine’s Day this year, choose the hard-wearing Fast & Free Women’s Workout Shorts and combine them with the long-sleeved Foudy Women’s Workout Top.
Stay warm outside and look good too
Are you traveling to a cold place with your loved one? Do not worry. Minus 33’s Men’s Long Sleeve Henley is the brand’s best-selling midweight fabric, and it’s easy to see why. It will look good and stay warm while doing it. The three buttons make it easy to get a little air ventilation when your outdoor workouts or snowy adventures turn up the heat. In addition, you will find that the length is just right. And if you want to buy a henley to match, no one will judge you – go for it!
Put your steps in with comfortable stairs
Whether you’re vacationing at a warm-weather beach destination, or hiking through your favorite metropolitan concrete jungle, you’ll want a comfortable pair of shoes you can walk in, especially when you’re trying to get your feet wet. OluKai makes athleisure shoes called Huia that are resilient and designed with a mesh upper. Plus, with the vegan materials, in three different colors, you can feel good about your purchase.
Something comfortable for the whole family
If you’re a fit and fun family, with kids in the wings, don’t leave the smallest members of your family out of the Valentine’s Day gift-giving tradition. Give your little loves sustainable children’s clothing from tentree. The Treefleece Sweatpants come in different colors and sizes and the Kids Hoodies are perfect for the winter. To coordinate, buy Dad’s InMotion Pants, a travel-friendly staple he’ll wear from the plane to his outdoor pursuits, with or without kids in tow. Bonus: tentree commits to plant ten trees for every item purchased! How cool is that?
Soft favorites for any activity
If you’re not familiar with Girlfriend Collective, a body-positive, performance-oriented training brand that uses recycled materials in their designs, start with their Compressive High-Rise Legging, paired with a Simone High Support Bra. Whether you’re taking an intense and sweaty vinyasa flow yoga class or going for a run, you’ll be supported in these fan favorites. The fabric is incredibly soft, but stays put where it’s needed and lets your body move no matter your shape or size.
A nice shoe that she definitely doesn’t have yet
For the partner for whom it’s hard to shop – because she seemingly has everything – gift the Women’s Court Shoe from Psudo this Valentine’s Day. Like something straight out of a comic book, these colorful shoes in cosmic hues, made from recycled plastic bottles, will stand out in her closet or on the go. Crafted and produced in the USA, with funky printed laces and an easy slip-on style, these water-resistant shoes will be her go-to shoe when traveling. Plus, the photos will pop!
A gift that can be worn every day
As well as being comfortable, the Myles Everyday Shorts are versatile: they can be worn during workouts in the hotel gym, while traveling and on a hike. How many shorts can you say you own that look good with a t-shirt, tank top, or button-up shirt? This is quickly becoming the fitness fan’s go-to short when traveling.
When the water beckons
Carve Designs are pros when it comes to swimwear that you can really move in. Each swimsuit is made from recycled materials and sourced five plastic bottles from the ocean. From multicolored bikini tops and bottoms to tankinis, swimwear, rash guards and board shorts, Carve Designs has it all. For a swimsuit with UPF 50 sun protection, high support and an adjustable fit, choose the Sandhaven Colorblock Top: Black/White and matching bottoms. Carve Designs suit-friendly suits are perfect for those who prioritize health and fitness while traveling, yet don’t want to sacrifice style.
