Buy your health-conscious friend a gift that caters to her desire to stay active and fit. Choose a present that fulfils a need or displays her love for sports or other activities while staying within the confines of your budget. Find out what she needs or has been wanting. These gifts work well for holidays, birthdays or to celebrate the completion of a major fitness goal such as losing 27.2 Kilogram.


Buy your friend some clothing to wear while she exercises at the gym or goes for a run outdoors. Choose clothing that you know she would wear and make sure you have her size correct. Don't buy a skimpy fitness outfit for a woman who doesn't like to show skin. Sometimes a breathable sporty T-shirt with long spandex trousers work well. See what she is wearing already and buy other outfits that are similar to match her style. Fitness socks, hats and wind breaker jackets also work well. You can also buy her a gift card to her favourite fitness store, if you aren't sure what to buy.

Sports Equipment

Many fitness lovers often enjoy getting dirty playing sports such as football, soccer and basketball. Buy him gifts that match his favourite sport. He might need new soccer balls, footballs or helmets. Tennis rackets, balls, shoes and other equipment also fall into this category. Buy one item that you know he really needs or select several items, depending on how much you are wanting to spend. Place equipment in a decorative gym or sports bag.

Memberships and Subscriptions

Buy her a paid membership to her favourite gym, tennis club, running club or other health organisation. These gifts work really well for a someone who loves fitness but doesn't always have the money to buy extra memberships. If she already has a membership at the gym, buy her a membership to a tennis club. She might also like a paid subscription to her favourite running or health magazine.

Health and Fitness Gift Baskets

Prepare a health or fitness gift basket for your friend. These baskets can include anything health related. Mix it up by featuring a combination of food items along with compact fitness gear. Choose a basket filled with organic vegetables and fruit and then add other treats such as a heart healthy cookbook, timer watch and small hand weight set. You might also want to create a basket filled with healthy fitness snacks such as organic peanuts, protein bars and fruit smoothie shake mixes. Other items to put in these baskets include skipping ropes, hats, socks, key chains and health magazines.
