Nothing comes at the cost of good health, and what better gift than the gift of health to your very beloved friend. From fitness trackers to running shoes or even a pair of workout clothes, there are so many health-related gifting options that your friend will absolutely love. In this article, we filter out 5 best and most useful gifts for your friend who has long been vouching about taking the path of fitness but never succeeded in the same.
Friendship day gifts: 5 best health-related gifts for your friend
1. Fitness trackers
Believe it or not, fitness trackers are one of the best friendship day gifts that you can give to your friend. They are especially helpful for those who have been trying to get on the fitness bandwagon and have failed to do so. Fitness bands and fitness trackers notify you about your daily calorie intake, your pulse rate, the number of steps you have walked and much more.
2. Running shoes
Running shoes are commonly heavy on your pocket. While there are pocket-friendly options available today, there's nothing like getting your dream running shoes as a friendship day gift, especially if you are a regular runner.
3. Subscription at a Pilates studio
Thanks to celebs like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Vaani Kapoor, Janhvi Kapoor, Bhumi Pednekar, Sonakshi Sinha, Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif to name a very few, Pilates as a fitness regime has gained massive popularity. So much so that there's a Pilates studio in nearly every metropolitan city. Celeb Pilates trainers Yasmin Karachiwala and Namrata Purohit have their Pilates studio in Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad and Jaipur amongst others. Gift your friend a month's subscription (or longer if it suits your budget) of Pilates as it is a fitness regime that can not help become fitter and thinner, it can also help in achieving a better posture, stronger core and muscles.
4. Workout clothes
Having a variety of workout clothes is necessary, and no longer a luxury. The best part is that it can work as a motivation for you on days you feel disheartened and demotivated to exercise. Workout clothes can make a great gift for your female friends, without a doubt. And if your male friend too is someone who likes to dress up for the gym, then nothing like a pair of new workout clothes. You can also add a pair of deos, socks, towels, foam rollers, etc with them.
5. Homemade protein bars
Homemade protein bars can be a pocket-friendly option for Friendship day. They require basic ingredients like grated coconut, nuts, seeds, ghee or olive oil, raisins, honey, sesame seeds, dates and much more. Read here to know some homemade protein bars that can be a great gift for your weight-conscious and health conscious friend.
