gift guide for gym bunnies

gym gear dumbbells pink workout water bottle gymshark

Happy December! I am aware that it is very nearly Christmas (already!), but this is my first post this month and therefore my first opportunity to wish you a lovely December and holiday season.


I love the gym and with that gym obsession comes a whole lot of love for gym gear, gym accessories and even gym themed clothing. Ya gurl's got the gym bug real bad so obviously a gift guide for gym bunnies was gonna happen this year, even if it is a lil bit late! Enjoy these gift recommendations from one gym girl to another.


Bottles

How awesome is this water bottle? It's a water bottle that doubles up as a dumbbell for simple workouts. You can workout with it and stay hydrated. Plus, it's a fun novelty bottle to take to the gym. I know I definitely want one.

Steel Shaker
If ya gurl's in need of a new blender bottle, this one looks ace. It comes with a built in grill to keep your protein shakes super smooth and it's made of steel rather than plastic, no doubt it's gonna last a long time and survive being crushed in a gym bag. Also one of the prettiest and sleekest shaker bottles I've come across.


Vitamin enriched Protein powders and supplements

I'm currently using the Mint Chocolate Brownie vegan protein from The Protein Works but they've recently brought out the Vegan Protein Extreme - which is enriched with vitamins, perfect for those of us who sometimes don't get enough vitamins in out diet, just a little top up.

Hero Vegan Protein Blend 
Or try this vitamin enriched protein blend from Free Soul! It's not just pretty and pink but packed with protein and extra vitamins for all round good health.

Women's Best - BCAA
A supplement for super good results after a workout and helps with muscle soreness.


Gym themed clothing 

Christmas gains sweater 
I saw this on minibutmighty_'s instagram and kinda fell in love straight away. If you love Christmas and you love the gains, it's a top that wraps up two of your favourite things. It's the perfect Christmas gym jumper for all those gym bunnies out there, defo an essential for returning from late night gym sessions. 

Gym and Juice Vest 
Know someone with a penchant for gym and gin? You know you gotta get this tank for them!

Girls just wanna have guns
A play on words of Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. To be honest, a good gym session is usually fun so a super good song to go alongside the gym theme. Upper body and 'guns' aren't the most popular with women, but there's definitely something underappreciated about lifting heavy weights and growing that upper body. A prefect gift for those into their upper body workouts!


Treat them to some new gym wear

Some of my favourite's include:

Gymshark - for super comfy and hella dope sets

Popactive - for super fashionable and unique pieces

Lulu Lemon - for something expertly crafted, comfy, and classic

H&M - for some more affordable but well fitting alternatives


All the protein snacks

If all else fails, you can just get your favourite gym bunny some protein snacks. Pick up some new and interesting flavours of brands, or get them a restock of their favourites. 

Some ideas: 
Protein cake bites 
A sweet post workout snack in birthday cake flavour! These have all the deliciousness of cake but with much less sugar and hella more protein!

Fulfil Bars 
Fulfil bars are my new favourite protein bars. With 20g of protein and 9 vitamins they make amazing post workout snacks with a huge amount of protein for such a small bar! I've picked some up from Boots and WHSmith, but you can also buy them online. My favourite flavour is by far, White Chocolate & Cookie Dough. 

Trek 
Trek bars are a classic for me. They're sold quite widely in supermarkets as well as health shops, so they're easily accessible. My favourites are the Cocoa Oat Protein flapjacks, so delicious and filing after a good workout, especially when you're on the go.

Quest Bars
Quest bars have almost every flavour imaginable, from cookies and cream, to blueberry cobbler, to birthday cake. They're packed with protein, low in sugar, and taste amazing.

Some places you can find protein snacks:
Protein pick&mix 
Holland and Barratt
Natural Balance Foods
Fulfil
Or check your local health food shops!

Hope you find something to make your gym bunny smile this Christmas!
