If you have a CrossFitter in your life, you know it; they probably won't stop talking about it in some way (The first rule of CrossFit is... we must always talk about CrossFit, right??) and finding holiday gifts for CrossFitters can be difficult but don't worry, we are here to help! There are so many great options that it can be a lot to choose from! The one thing I've noticed is that Crossfitters are practical meaning they appreciate anything and everything they can use for training or that they can eat!
Here are 10 Gifts we suggest:
Trust us when this will always be a WIN! CrossFitters are always in athletic gear at some point during the day or all day! Everyone always finds something they love at Lulu and we know the price point can be steep so even if it's $20 gift card they can always put it towards something they have been wanting!
A speed rope isn't the sexiest gift, but for a new CrossFitter who is constantly struggling to master double unders (which is, like, all of us), it's a useful thing to have! And it comes with a beginner cable as well as an advanced cable! After a while, the average CrossFitter is going to want their own rope sized for them instead of using one of the ropes at the box.
If your CrossFitter likes to LIFT...(duh) of course they do! Then give them the support they need and get them this super comfortable, 4" wide weightlifting belt. They will be so thankful you will be interested in their PR gains!
The perfect stock stuffer if you just need to a get gift that isn't too big or isn't too small especially for a white elephant game or a Secret Santa - this is something that most Crossfitters won't have in their gym bag because they are available at the gym but everyone appreciates a set they can call their own! Another great stock stuffer would be our, WOD Nation Muscle Floss, check it out!
End the Reebok vs. Nike debate with a pair of No Bull trainers. Designed with CrossFitters in mind, they come in a variety of colors and in men’s and women’s sizes. They’re minimal and perfect for box jumps, lifting, and much more. There are more than just shoes to check out on the No Bull site as well! Remember, gift cards are always a win!
Help your favorite CrossFitter protect his or her shins during deadlifts and rope climbs. Get Stance Socks for a great stocky stuffer!! They will be more than impressed you choose this brand - trust me! These are also more than practical; they’re also fun, stylish for any occasion with funky patterns and sayings for everyone - kids too!!
When I said practical, I meant it. A Crossfitter would not be mad if you got them protein! They use it every day probably twice a day! Gnarly is one of the companies we love and recommend because they offer clean and natural products including BCAAs and much more!
If you didn't notice...Crossfitters love letting people know they Crossfit or how much they can't stand running. It's one of the other! So you can't go wrong with getting them one of these cute tanks/tees. They won't be able to wait to rock one of these tanks to the gym!
We all know what happens with our jewelry, we don't get to really wear or we have to be careful especially their wedding ring because the barbell can scruff it up pretty bad. Get your loved one a ring they can wear without having to worry about it!
You seriously can NEVER go wrong with this! Especially if you want someone to try Crossfit you can pay for the elements course, 10-punch class card or a whole month! #winning
