November 26, 2021
It’s that time of year… again! If you know me, you know I love the holiday season, and the opportunity to take a step back and reflect on the year with family, friends, and my amazing team at Blogilates. And of course, choosing the perfect gifts for everyone on my list.
This year is no different, and I want to help you buy for all the girls on your lists — everyone from your BFF to your daughter, mom, sister-in-law, neighbors, and even that new friend you met at the gym. Instead of giving you guys just my perspective, I asked the wonderful women I work with to help me put together the ultimate holiday gift guide for all the special people on your list this year.
Take a look, and leave me a comment on what your favorite gifts are!
For The Friend Who Loves At-Home Workouts
If you have a fitness lover on your list, look no further than this all-in-one gift. This gift set includes a yoga mat, two blocks and booty bands, all the basics to help your bestie build out her home gym. And I maaaay be biased, but I am obsessed with this design and I feel like it is the perfect versatile set to fit into any home gym.
For The Girl Who Is A Tres Chic
Sheila Embossed Crossbody ($66+)
This is the ultimate bag. It is sleek and chic, but still holds all your necessities including a sleeve for your phone and cards. When I wear it out, I get so many compliments and strangers asking where I got it. I already have it penned next to a few names on my list this year.
Lead Social Media Manager
For The One Who Wants To Stand Out, Literally
7 Days of Socks ($39)
I get so many compliments on each of these socks. I love that they stand out from my normal plain white socks, and they make me smile every time I look down and see them. This is a great option for anyone on your list, because I mean who doesn’t love wearing cute and cozy socks!?
For The Adventurous Cook
GoWise Air Fryer ($65)
I like to avoid turning on the oven when possible, and this air fryer makes it so quick and easy to cook all my usual staples – veggies, potatoes, even meat! Everything always turns out perfectly crispy too (win, win!). This is a great gift for the food lover in your life.
For The Girl Who Is #Fitspo
These leggings are so comfortable and so cute. I literally live in these leggings and the Belle sweater. The perfect combo to work out or even go out with friends and dress them up. They are a perfect gift for your besties, sisters, cousins, etc.. it really looks great on everyone!
For The Friend Who Posts Daily Updates On Their Monstera

Plants bring life to your space and being near nature and plants just instantly uplifts my mood, so I am always so happy when I get a plant as a gift! It’s a great gift for literally anyone because who doesn’t love plants? I recommend going to your local plant store, but if you are shipping some greenery from afar, Bloomscape is a great option.
Lead Graphic Designer
For The Girl On The Go
If you are looking for the perfect “throw over sweaty hair and go run errands,” look no further than POPFLEX’s cult-favorite accessory. Love that it fits my hairstyle no matter if I have it down, in a bun or a high ponytail.
For The Trendy Homebody

Disco ball plant holder ($30)
Disco planters mesh the fun of disco with the sophistication of house plants. I like this one for gifting because, unlike other disco planters, it comes with both a macrame hanger and a tabletop stand, making it a fit for every room.
Chief Growth Officer
For The One Starting Their Health Journey
I love supporting friends and family on their health journey and this is such an awesome fit planner. It’s also a reminder of my love for them every day of the year!
For The Thoughtful Friend

Jana’s Creative Place (from $13)
Handmade and personalized gifts are my go-to, and Jana checks both boxes. Jana will custom embroidery any kind of quote, whether it’s a favorite quote, a word of encouragement, or an inside joke. This is a great gift, and as a bonus, you are supporting a small business this holiday season.
Technical Designer and Product Development
For The Low-Maintenance Friend (That Still Wants To Look Good)
Belle Sweater ($68)
The new Belle sweater by POPFLEX is the perfect transitional piece to take her from her workout to her next zoom call. With a loose fit and stylish sleeves, I love this gift because it is flattering for all body types.
For The Multi-Tasking Mom On The Go

YETI coffee mug ($30)
The perfect gift to keep her coffee or tea warm in the morning. A great option for the moms in your life that have a page-long to-do list before 9 AM. She’ll thank you for keeping her caffeinated all morning long.

For The Friend Who Always Forgets To Drink Enough Water
This 64oz beauty will make hydrating the favorite part of your day. This bottle is literally my baby. I take it with me everywhere I go, I keep it clean and scratch-free, I even freak out when I misplace it. It’s pretty much my fashion accessory as I’m running errands, AND it reminds me to stay hydrated on the go.
For The Busy Bestie Who Still Wants To Workout
Fragraim Ankle Weights ($35)
My ankle & wrist weights are so convenient to quickly add and reduce weight while I’m doing literally anything. I’ll even wear them while I’m going for a walk! Since I work out from home, I’m free from equipment and have to make use of smaller portable accessories. It’s perfect for people who can’t dedicate time for full workouts so they can easily wear the weights as they’re doing household chores. It’s a game-changer!
Business Development Manager
For The Friend Who’s Top Priority Is Comfort
Cloud Hoodie ($70)
This hoodie is where the athleisure style and complete comfort combine. My friends always text me when they’re wearing it and never want to buy another hoodie again.
For The Girl Who Always Forgets Her Purse

Lululemon Fanny Pack ($38)
This fanny pack is both cute and functional. Everyone can use a choice fanny pack when running errands or going on a trip. And with multiple options to wear and style this piece, it is the perfect versatile gift.
For The Girl Whose Style Always Looks Effortless
Explore Tee ($30)
I love the top alone, but it’s the best for me with the hourglass biker shorts. I can run some errands or take a hike. They just combine for the perfect comfortable outfit . These are the perfect gifts for friends or family. You can’t go wrong with classic pieces this cute – and it’s something that they can wear for a long time!
For Someone Who Needs A Little R&R
A Holiday Care Package ($37)
One of my favorite gifts is a classic holiday care package. A basket with some cocoa mix (or even these delicious hot cacao bombs), fuzzy socks, a fave candle, face mask — the works! I mean, at the end of the day, you’re trying to give someone an experience. And everyone wants to vibe out with fuzzy socks, moisturized skin, and some hot chocolate. I like to make them on my own, but if you’re in a time crunch Etsy has some great options.
Technical Designer and Product Development
For The Person Looking To Level Up Their Fitness Game
Natural Booty Band Set ($32)
The booty bands are a perfect gift for anyone who needs a little help with or wants to step up their workout. I love this set because it is more gender-neutral, so it is a fit for everyone on your list. I even gifted this to my son’s conditioning coach.
For The Vegan Skincare Lover

Suhay’s Soaps ($9)
I love Suhay’s soaps because each of their products is all-natural, vegan, cruelty-free, and handmade from botanicals and organic essential oils. The woman who owns the business, and makes the soaps, researches different botanicals. Her soaps, lotions, and bath bombs are amazing and smell better than anything on the market.
And there you have it! The 2021 Blogilates Team Holiday Gift Guide. Hopefully this list helps you find some unique, special gifts for everyone on your list this year. Plus you get the added perk of shopping small! Yay!
