Five Stocking Stuffers Under $20 for the Fitness Lover


When it comes to gift shopping, sometimes stocking stuffers can be the hardest things to find. Instead of filling your loved one’s stocking with “dollar store” items, choose a few thoughtful items that will be appreciated (and well used!) by the fitness lover in your life:

1. Headlamp
: Whether they run, walk, ski or snowshoe, a headlamp is an essential tool to help your outdoor exercise enthusiast “see and be seen.” Although my husband found one at the Dollarama, I recommend purchasing this item at an outdoor store such as Mountain Equipment Co-op. Price: $16.50.

2. Headband:
Why not put a little Lululemon into your loved ones life? (And FYI, one can never have enough Lulu.) Headbands come in wide and narrow, in a variety of colours. The Lulu Slipless Headband has a silicone grip to keep it in place while moving for a mere $12.

3. Jump Rope: It’s the ultimate calorie-burning, portable device (about 50-60 calories burned in just five minutes). You can find quality ropes at most sporting goods stores for $10-12. And to enhance this gift, print off our “How to jump guide” and slip it in the stocking too.

4. Mat wash: Ever consider how dirty and germy your yoga mat is? Think about it — you constantly put your head where your feet just were! Gaiam yoga mat wash is an organic cleanser that cleans and restores your mat, while maintaining the non-slip surface you need to practice yoga without accidentally doing the splits or toppling over. The current sale price on the Gaiam website is $7.98.

5. Socks:
I know as a child you groaned when dear Auntie Agnes gave you yet another pair of pink polka dotted socks with bows. However, as an adult, a comfy pair of sports socks are of great value. My favourite are from Joe Fresh – 3 pairs for $6!
