5 perfect Valentine's gifts for fitness lovers
Nothing says “I love you” like a new gadget, workout experience or muscle-melting massage. Here are this year’s best Valentine’s Day gifts for fit-and-funky partners.
It’s a well-known fact that exercise makes us feel good. Sweating it out releases those all-important endorphins that boost happiness, give us energy and send our confidence soaring.
If you’re pondering what to buy a fitness lover for Valentine’s Day, look no further. Try gifts that whet their appetite for more physical activity. Here are a few of our favourites:
For those who grind hard: Killer massage
You have two choices: you can learn how to give your other half a glorious massage just in time for Valentine’s Day, or you can buy the gift of a professional muscle-melter. At Holmes Place, we have a number of beneficial massage treatments to treat the one you love this February 14. From the rejuvenating and rhythmic Li’tya Kodo to toxin-eliminating lymphatic drainage, a massage is an ideal mix of practicality and romance.
For the Yogi in your life: Meditation set
Sometimes, the best gifts are priceless. Where yoga is concerned, sharing a session with the one you love could be the best present you could give. It will deepen your practice and enrich your time together. But if you want to hand over something material, that’s fine too. Upgrade your Zen Den with a new meditation mat and cushion - this super-soft meditation set from Lotus Crafts will make any Yogi more inclined to take up a regular practice.
For your running buddy lover: Personalised marathon print
If you’re often buying practical gifts for the runner you love, this time of year is a perfect chance to inject a little romance. If you’re a runner yourself, escape to the country for a long weekend of trail running. Nothing beats a post-run high after a monster training session. But for something your partner can keep forever, treat them to a personalised print of a marathon they’ve completed from Not On The High Street.
For those who like to try new things: AntiGravity® classes
Swap the silk underwear for a silk hammock this Valentine’s Day, with the gift of AntiGravity®. It’s one of the hottest workouts of 2018, which involves a combination of pilates, yoga, dance and gymnastics - all while hanging from the ceiling. Try a class together - you’ll both leave feeling lighter, bendier and taller - what’s not to love about that?
For a partner who loves the pump: Powerbeats3 Wireless earphones
Ask any bodybuilder what irritates them during a workout and trailing headphone wires are sure to be on the list. Treat that special weightlifter in your life to a pair of wireless headphones. You’re guaranteed an evening of love and affection. Powerbeats3 Wireless earphones by Beats by Dre are top of the game - there’s no wire to yank on barbells or clothing, they boast up to 12 hours of battery life, and they’re sweat-resistant too. Now all you need to do is create the perfect blood-pumping playlist for a steamy Valentine’s workout.
