It’s almost the most happiest time of the year — and it seems like lots of us are already gearing up for the holidays!
I’ve been both fielding and asking a lot of questions about the most wanted, and the most practical, gifts of the season for yogis, runners, and fitness junkies in general. I’ve compiled what I believe to be one of the most helpful lists of gifts for any person with an active lifestyle. I have already done my Christmas shopping, so I’m feeling quite organised at the minute. I’ve bought my husband an Invicta Pro Diver watch (he has a huge watch collection!) and my kids an Xbox to share. It’s so exciting and i can’t wait for Christmas! So without any further ado, I bring you The Ultimate 2014 Holiday Gift Giving Guide (for athletes)!

With full Dolby sound, the Jabra Sport Wireless earbuds allow you to play/pause music, change tracks, control the volume, and yes, even take calls all while working out. Easy, no fuss, no wires. I love wireless earbuds and I am even thinking of treating myself to some new ones! If you want to buy some wireless bluetooth headphones (or comprar auriculares inalambricos bluetooth as they’d say in Spain), do lots of research. You won’t regret it! Before I buy any new gadgets, I always check out some product reviews to make sure I am making the right decision. If you would like to read some wireless earbud reviews you can click here.
