As tempting as it might be for our team here at Hybryd to say, “it’s coming up to that time of year again” (read: perilously short daylight hours, greyness, drizzle, and a level of coldness – even indoors – that has you reaching ever-more frequently for the thermostat), the reality is that if a special someone in your life is a fitness enthusiast, you probably won’t need to be told this. 

After all, you have probably spent the last few weeks and months marvelling at the ability of that committed “someone” to adapt their exercise routines to the changing of the seasons. That might have already entailed switching from open-air running and yoga sessions to indoor activities at home, in the office, and/or, of course, at the local gym or leisure centre. 

Would a fitness gift be a tasteful choice of festive present for that certain someone? 

If you’re not exactly the world’s biggest fitness fanatic yourself, but you’re wondering whether you could “acceptably” get that certain person a gift centred on their passion, our short answer to that question would be… you certainly could

Of course, we’re presuming here that the person you’re contemplating buying a fitness-oriented Christmas gift for, is someone who is passionate about working out, or who has spoken a lot about their wish to do so. You won’t want to risk offending them with a choice of gift that suggests they desperately “need” to get on the treadmill, if they have made no reference to this themselves. 

Presuming a fitness-oriented present of some kind probably would be a relatively tasteful and well-judged gift, though, there is no shortage of Hybryd clothing, accessories, and other gear that could be suitable. So, let’s take a look at some of those options. 

Our online store showcases an extensive selection of great-quality Hybryd clothing 

If it’s workout clothes you’re thinking of getting your intended recipient, well… this is the category of gift where you may need to exercise the greatest caution. 

Let’s presume the person you will be buying the gift for is a long-established romantic partner or spouse; in that case, you might be on the safest ground in terms of making a choice of clothing for them. 

You may have the luxury of being well-acquainted with their size and sense of style already. So, it might be relatively easy for you to pick out something from the Hybryd clothing range, whether you have items like t-shirts, joggers, shorts, or something else in mind. 

Or maybe you could get that special person a non-clothing item? 

Trying to buy someone some clothing as a gift can, of course, feel like a minefield even in the best of circumstances. Thankfully, there are various accessories and other gear in the Hybryd online store that are likely to be appreciated by the recipient, almost regardless of your relationship to them, such as bags, socks, and headwear. 

Hopefully, you won’t need us to tell you to steer well clear of underwear as a Christmas present unless you’re long-time-boyfriend-and-girlfriend level of intimate. And don’t be thinking of getting even the most fitness-focused colleague a sports bra as the office “secret Santa”, either. 

If all else fails, there’s always the option of a gift card 

So, you’re vaguely aware that someone you know is into their fitness pursuits, and you may have even seen them in action in the gym or outdoors… but that’s about it. 

This is a combination of circumstances that might lend itself best to you getting them a Hybryd gift card, and there’s nothing wrong with that in the slightest. In fact, with £25, £50, and £100 denominations all available for our gift cards in our store, whether your recipient might be most drawn to Hybryd clothing, bags, or socks (or yes, those sports bras), they will be empowered to make the right gift decision for them. 

And our gift cards are super simple to use; you can email the card you have purchased to the recipient, and they will then be able to redeem the discount code on the Hybryd website. 

So, there you have it; a few things to consider if it has crossed your mind to get someone fitness clothing or similar exercise-oriented items as a gift for this Christmas. Hopefully, the fact that all our items can be posted for free to UK addresses might help you even more in your gift-buying decisions this festive season!
