The Best Fitness Gifts for Her

We’ve got the best gift ideas for all the women on your list.

Shopping for your mother-in-law, friend or sister can be an exhausting endeavor, especially when she seemingly has everything.  If she loves a good sweat sesh, chances are she already has a fitness wish list fresh in her mind. You might think this means shopping for her can be tricky, but choosing the best fitness gift for her doesn’t need to be a high pressure situation. We’ve got you covered with a list of foolproof active gift ideas from shiny tights that can withstand the sweatiest workout, to a cozy sweatshirt she never knew she needed (until now). If she’s a gym devotee or a straight up athleisure addict, odds are she can always use more workout gear. And, with the new year looming and its resolutions not far behind, these fitness gifts for her can be motivations to get back to those box jumps or Pilates class. 
Our team has gathered the most versatile options for everyone on your list, so you can tick all the holiday gift-giving boxes for the active women in your life. And, if you need even more suggestions, you can shop our full fitness gift collection here.


The Nano X is the shoe for the fitness enthusiast that does it all. It’s an iconic Reebok shoe and part of a long line of cross-training sneakers. In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the sneaker, Reebok reimagined it to meet even more needs. There’s an upgraded Flexweave upper for stretch and durability. Plus, when she’s doing heavy sets in the gym she can rely on the minimal drop outsole for secure footing. The new collar is made with high density foam which will also allow her plenty of comfort as she moves. If she’s an active runner or hitting up virtual classes from her living room, the compression molded midsole will give her that extra cushion. If she’s active, this workout gift is likely already on her list. The biggest problem you’ll have is picking a colorway because there are so many good ones to choose from.


Last year, Reebok conducted a survey with over 500 people to find out what gifts they really wanted for the holidays. An overwhelming 77% said they actually like getting socks in their stockings. So, safe to say you can’t go wrong with this fitness gift for her. The notion that everyone can always use a pair of new socks is actually true, so why not get her this pack of three? The heel and toe are reinforced with terry for extra cushioning to handle any movement. Whether she’s heading to the gym or working out at home, she’ll be happy to have a fresh pair. 


Help her toss some of her boring and worn out leggings aside with these high-rise shiny tights. They’ll add some sheen and style to her workout wardrobe. The high-rise waist gives full coverage so she can crush her burpees and squats worry-free. There’s also a double-layer elastic waistband for extra support, so they’ll hold up no matter what workout she has scheduled. Bonus: Since they’re black they’ll also go with anything she has, and she can wear them for any post-workout plans that may come up. The versatility of the leggings allows her to swap a workout top for a crop top and then she’s good to go. Giving her these leggings as her gift will allow her to give her best during every workout.


If she’s just started running this past year or she’s been running for years, she’ll definitely be thanking you for this gift. These running shoes are supported with the Floatride Energy Foam that provides responsive, cushioned comfort without sacrificing flexibility and ground feel. They also have a lightweight upper, so her feet won’t feel cramped as she strides. It’s a give-in that her feet are eventually going to sweat, so it’s a good thing that this sneaker has a forefoot mesh that keeps the air flowing to give her some serious breathability. There’s also a scoop collar to keep her locked into the shoe so she can stay motivated for the road ahead. As she laces these sneakers up to log her miles for the day, she can feel confident in knowing that these running shoes are going to give her what she needs throughout her run so she can focus on her next PR.


There’s nothing better than buying a fitness gift you know is also helping the planet. These women’s training tights are made of recycled or repurposed materials as part of Reebok’s goal to work towards a more sustainable future. She can go through her workout with a clean conscience knowing that the body of her leggings are made of 85% recycled polyester and the mesh is 93% recycled polyester. They also have a sweat-wicking fabric to keep her cool and dry for those high intensity workouts and moments where she’s really pushing herself to the limit. The wide high-rise waistband will give her the support she needs from pull ups to lunges and push-ups. This is a workout gift for her that you can feel good about giving.


A good staple sweatshirt is a must-have in any workout wardrobe and is a great fitness gift for her. A cozy sweatshirt will be especially nice when she’s up early for a morning workout or heading out for a late-night run. This crew sweatshirt is 100% cotton French Terry and has a relaxed fit, so the comfort is built in. It comes in a few different colors besides navy in case you want to snag another one. The simplistic design makes it easy for her to toss it on over any of her workout gear and it’s light enough where she can tie it around her waist after she’s worked up a sweat. 


Yes, fanny packs are back and they’re better than ever. Whether she’s at the gym or hitting the trails, this waist bag is a great gift for her. The zip main compartment has enough room for the smaller essentials, like her jewelry, ear pods, phone or keys. The adjustable strap gives her options depending on how she wants to wear it, so she can easily change it up from a waist bag to a shoulder or crossbody bag. While big gym bags are great to lug your stuff around, sometimes a smaller one can be just as effective. She’ll be able to keep all her small items in one place and toss the bag aside while she’s active.
