Holiday Gift Giving Guide: Gym Bags Edition

With the holidays quickly approaching, I wanted to put together a series of posts highlighting unique, health conscious gifts for the loved ones in your life.  Whether they be fitness fanatics, or nutrition newbies, these gifts are perfect for everyone!  (And, hopefully, my husband is keeping track, because a few of these are definitely on my personal wishlist!)

PicMonkey CollageFirst up is the gym bag!  Even as someone known to carry a large purse around on the regular, I like to keep a separate bag for all my gym and workout needs for several important reasons.  One, it allows me to stay organized.  Two, just seeing my gym bag in the corner of my office gives me motivation to go work out.  And, three, I like to keep my sweaty clothes separate from everything else.  Plus, with gym bags you can take some more risks that you wouldn’t necessary take with an everyday purse.  Personally, with both gym bags and with workout sneakers, I’m all about the flash!  So, click to see my top five gym bags this holiday season (in no particular order) – I hope you enjoy!

Vera Bradley Sports Duffel

The Vera Bradley Sports Duffel boasts a slip through compartment on the back that fits a yoga mat, your umbrella, or even a towel.  It  has plenty of compartments to keep you organized, and comes in tons of fun patterns!  Plus, this gym bag easily can pull double duty as a more funky and casual purse.  Amazon currently has 17 options ranging from $44.50 to $69.99, or you can check out the Vera Bradley website for other choices!

Nike C72 Legend 2.0

I can personally attest that this gym bag is a quality purchase, being that I own it in pink!  My favorite features are the dual-zip main compartments and the fact that it has a water-repellent finish.   The Nike C72 Legend 2.0 Bag is currently available on the Nike website in three different color options for only $65, but watch out for periodic sales on the site to save some extra money.  And, if you sign up for Ebates – a free service that gives you cash back for shopping online – you can get 12% cash back on your purchase from the Nike website!  (That’s $7.80 just from the bag alone!)

The Everyday Tote

The Everyday Tote from Fabletics not only has a fun and funky pattern to look good at the gym, it is functional too!  It boasts organizational pockets along the inside of the bag, and a slip through compartment to store your yoga mat.  And, at 9.25″ x 20″ x 14″, it is large enough to fit all of your needs!

Lug Puddle Jumper Overnight Gym Bag

I’ve had my eye on this last bag for a while, especially in the Cranberry Red color, which is available on Amazon.com.  It has a ventilated compartment for your shoes, or soiled clothing, and tons of other compartments to stash all of your stuff – pens, water bottle, Chapstick, etc.  Plus, I love a bag that can I can use not only at the gym but for overnight trips with my husband!

What is on your holiday wishlist?
