Needing gift ideas for your favorite fitness enthusiast, foodie, or athlete? Here’s a list of 15 gifts they’re sure to love! These are just a few of my personal favorite kitchen staples, travel essentials, and at-home gym equipment. Wishing everyone a happy and healthy holiday season from Eleat Nutrition!
Instant Pot (6 Qt. 7-in-1 Multi-Use)
I actually just got one of these this past year, and was shocked how many different meals I could make in less than an hour! My personal favorite is making Mexican casserole. I love that you can saute and slow cook all in one pot. For athletes living in dorm-style apartments or extended-stay hotels with limited appliances, they will love the versatility of an instant pot.
Classic Chef’s Knife (Wusthof, 6-inch)
I firmly believe every home cook should have one good quality chef’s knife. This makes slicing and dicing for your meal prep 10000x better. I’m personally a fan of Wusthof knives and use this exact knife daily! The one shown here is available at Bed, Bath, & Beyond, Williams Sonoma, and on Amazon.
Whether you’re constantly busy with practice, work, or class, nothing is more useful when it comes to meal prepping than a crockpot. Crockpots are also so handy for athletes living in hotels without full kitchens, or living in dorm-style apartments without ovens or stoves. Here’s a collection of over 25+ recipes you can make in a crockpot.
Blender such as Vitamix, Blendtec, or Ninja
The perfect solution for getting in your daily dose of fruits and veggies! But really, these heavy duty blenders such as Vitamix, Blendtec, and Ninja are a must-have for every athlete. From daily smoothies and blending soups to making sauces and dressings, there’s so many different ways to use it. They can also double as a food processor. While Vitamix is the priciest of the three, it’s well worth the money. I’ve had the same Vitamix blender for going on 6 years now, and still use it at least once a day everyday!
Travel Meal Prep Lunch Box
This is the ultimate way to make sure the athlete in your life always has a healthy meal ready to eat. Traveling can create food nightmares and hangry travelers. This cooler solves all of those problems!
These containers make meal prep a breeze. They’re microwavable, dishwasher safe, and store nicely - so you don’t have to worry about them cluttering up your cabinets!
This is the perfect gift for the fitness enthusiast who’s always on the road. This yoga mat folds up small enough to fit in your backpack or carry-on, and is perfect for airports or small hotel rooms.
Their Favorite Coffee or Tea - great stocking stuffers!
For the coffee/tea fanatics - these make the perfect stocking stuffer! I love the Holiday flavors Republic of Tea has come out with which are available on Amazon and at Whole Foods. Other ideas are Yogi tea, these travel packets of Matcha, a bag of ground coffee beans, or a gift card to their favorite coffee shop.
TRX All in One Suspension Training System
The TRX is probably the most dynamic piece of training equipment you can find that will also fit in a suitcase. With a door anchor that works over any door, TRX makes it possible to get a solid workout in virtually anywhere. This is hands down my favorite piece of exercise equipment!
Because these bands are so small and portable, they are perfect for fitting in a workout while on the road. I always have one of these rolled up in my carry-on. There are several band exercises that can easily be done in the small space of a hotel room.
Perfect for transforming any room into your own personal fitness studio! This wireless speaker is easily portable, waterproof, and has up to 6 hours of play time from a rechargeable battery.
