Need a gift for an active person that likes sports? Well, in this ultimate gift guide we’ve got ideas for sporty girls and guys of all ages.
There isn’t much point in hanging around, mumbling on about Christmas – let’s just get into it, shall we?
Below, we’ve picked some Christmas crackers that we think will put a smile on the face of that sporty person in your life. It’s what we at Wiggle would like to wake-up and see in our stocking anyway…
Runners, cyclists, and seriously outdoorsy people will love these SHOKZ OpenRun Pro Wireless Headphones. They last for around 10 hours of constant use and use bone conduction for crisp and clear sound. Another bonus is their safety feature. They have situational awareness tech, which means the wearer can hear traffic noise or other hazards while listening to tunes.
So this is a little piece of tech genius by Garmin. Basically, it’s a satellite communicator that can send messages to let people know you’re safe, or trigger an SOS message even when well outside the cell network. You can also pair with your phone using the Garmin app so that you’re never off grid. It has a number of other tricks and features and is a great gift for the explorers out there.
If your loved one is known to complain about muscle soreness from all the gym work they do, or multi-mile running they are so modest about, then this is a great idea. A bit of deep tissue massage while watching the telly with a cup of something warm. Who wouldn’t want that?
If you don’t get socks, was it even Christmas? The Stance brand is beloved by runners for their solid quality and funky designs, so this fancy little three pack is brain-unrequired winner.
One specifically for cyclists, but it’s one of those gifts that can’t go wrong. Every cyclists’ dream addition, the Garmin Edge 1040 is teeming with tech and features. From turn-by-turn navigation to messaging, it’s a little data powerhouse and one of the very best cycling computers available.
These little beauties are great for the runner in your life. Ridiculously comfy, they’re perfect for sore feet and hammered joints. The closed-cell foam cradles the arches and absorbs 37% more impact than normal footwear so they feel like you’re walking on clouds – which is exactly how your loved one will feel when they open these on Christmas morning.
The GoPro 10 allows the adventurous person in your life to record their adventures so they can watch them back and share with friends or, indeed, the world. Strap it to the chest, handlebars or just use handheld, and relive every moment in stunning 5.3K resolution. This model is one of the latest from GoPro, and offers a borderline ridiculous list of features, from live stream to slo-mo to voice control – the list goes on and on and on…
Imagine being a kid again and waking up to this on Christmas morning. The Vitus Nucleus 26 Youth Hardtail is a sure-fire jaw dropper, perfect for trail riding, bike park sessions and off-road adventures. With a light yet sturdy alloy frame and an 8-speed Box Four groupset, they’ll probably never want to get off.
We all need a bit more time to fit exercise into our lives, and that's what the Garmin Forerunner 55 GPS Watch delivers. Kind of. This smartwatch provides personalised training guidance, advanced wellness tracking, heart rate monitoring and much more at a really competitive price. An excellent gift for sporty people of all disciplines and ages.
What do you get the sporty person who’s got everything? Well, with this they have the double bonus of reminding everyone of their healthy hobby whilst also holding a hot beverage. A cracking little stocking filler.
