About Sports Gear & Accessories
Gifting a piece of quality sports gear is a thoughtful gesture that shows how much you acknowledge and respect your recipient's passion for a certain activity. Also, it's a "show, don't tell" kind of thing:
- Instead of saying how much you wish them strong health, you give them something to help strengthen it.
- Instead of wishing them fabulous results and countless victories, you give them something to skyrocket the effectiveness of their training.
In some cases, a sports-related gift can also become the initial impulse to finally get your recipient into active mode. After all, when you have a pair of fabulous running shoes, you're naturally more inclined to give them a try. The same works for a top-quality ball, a tennis racket, or a swimming suit: it all depends on what your recipient prefers.
When gifting sports gear & accessories, the only important principle is to pick something really useful and tailored to your recipient's hobby or else your otherwise fabulous present will be just a white elephant with no real impact. A swimmer doesn't need a pair of boxing gloves, right?
In other words, we recommend giving specific sports gear ONLY if you know what kind of sports your recipient practices or wants to start practising. If you're not sure about that but you know that your recipient is a generally active soul, either stick to a universal option or pick a totally different kind of gift.
These are some universal sports gift that will be a great shot for most recipients who are into active lifestyle:
Fitness trackers and smartwatches
These will help your recipient to keep an eye on his or her heart rate, training time, calories burned, and everything of the sort. Modern sports gadgets also have a whole bunch of specialized apps for specific sports, so they're really versatile.
Specialized water bottles
Maintaining proper water balance during training is one of the most important requirements to ensure optimal performance. Another great thing about water bottles is that you can pick an option that would reflect both your recipient's love for sports AND some other hobby or passion. For example, a Batman-themed water bottle for someone who's a fan of the Caped Crusader.
Sportswear and active footwear
This option is a bit trickier because you have to know the recipient's size and style preferences, but if you get these right - a piece of quality sportswear is guaranteed to be a stupendous gift for any occasion. There's no such thing as "too many pairs of running shoes."
Gym bags and backpacks
We know some folks that have a single bag for all occasions and activities in life, and that's just not right. Make sure your recipient will always be training in style with a comfortable and capacious gym bag.
