Creative Gift Idea to JumpStart Fitness
This last Saturday, I went out to do some grocery shopping and pick up some last minute gifts and stocking stuffers. To say it was crazy at the store would be an understatement. I found a lot of Christmasy type gifts to be out of stock. This is when I realized it was time to get creative with gift giving.
With the New Year coming, lots of individuals will make resolutions. I know some don’t like resolutions, but I love them. It gives me a chance to step back and set some goals for the year. I’m not the biggest fitness buff, but I am going to start training for a marathon after the first of the year. I also have some good friends who love fitness. I came up with a cute holiday gift idea that would not only be fun for women who love fitness, but those who are resolving to do a little better and need a boost.
New Years + fitness + last minute gift = Fit Stocking for Her
The Fit Stocking for her includes:
- $25 iTunes gift card – We all know great music can get you motivated!
- $15 gift card to Subway
- Rubbermaid Water Bottle
- Goody Ouchless Elastics & Slip Proof Head Bands
- Blistex Lip Balm
- Special K Nourish Bars
I tucked them all into a stocking and it makes a pretty fun gift. The best part about this gift is that I got the entire thing while doing my grocery shopping. My local Kroger store, Smith’s, carries a LOT of different gift cards. I took the idea of gift cards and paired it with other items that I found in the store. It allows the recipient to choose what they want to do with the gift cards, but also adds a personal touch with items also purchased at the store.
This could also be personalized for a man. Swap out the hair accessories for something else like anti-perspirant or icy hot and you’ve got a great gift! It’s also something you could put together last minute.
What kind of a themed gift could you make with gift cards?
I received a gift card to facilitate this post, however all opinions remain 100% my own.
