Good Sport: The Best Festive Gift Ideas For Fitness Enthusiasts
From the latest release trainers to peak performance apparel, we highlight the Nike gifts on every sports fan's wish list this Christmas.
For some of us, the thought of exerting ourselves any more than reaching for a second helping of bread sauce at Christmas is sacrilege. Others, more sensibly, see nothing to be gained from surrendering their perfectly honed fitness regimes to the whim of a selection box. It is the latter to which we turn our attention today, with a curation of sports-inspired gifts sure to impress even the most dedicated fitness devotee.
Shopping for sports fans may not feel like a simple task at first, but what other interest could at once offer a plethora of products to choose from as well as a series of niche interests to really hunker down on. It also helps that the likes of Nike make it exceedingly simple for even an exercise outsider to navigate their world.

Of course, after the last couple of years we’ve had, they’re likely to have already meticulously arranged their living room into an indoor studio and stocked up their drawers with perfectly-matched activewear sets. But all this serves as further inspiration for our shopping efforts. If they’ve embraced outdoor pursuits, delight them with a sweat-wicking down gilet or ultra cushioned-sole trainers intended to take on the hardest concrete trails. First in line for Forest Yoga every Thursday evening? Gift them a stretchy unitard that instantly communicates to a complete stranger where they’ve just spent the last hour. Because really, that’s the greatest gift of all.
But truth be told, you hardly need to have sub-30 min 5k under your belt to appreciate what Nike has to offer. Some of us simply prefer to dabble in a pair of Nike Air Huaraches without having to break into a sweat - and there’s no judgment from our side if you do. Instead, we’ve included an array of pure unadulterated fashion pieces in our gift list to satisfy any streetwear fan.

Go The Extra Mile
Switch out their summer shorts for running tights, pick up their feet in a pair of Air Zoom Pegasus 38s (in this season’s trending sky blue for extra style kudos) or protect yourself from the elements in a high vis hooded jacket that you wouldn’t mind wearing to brunch on the weekend. What?Noone said you couldn't include yourself.
Gifting yoga fans is a simple as holding a child's pose. A pair of leggings or a soft new mat is guaranteed to please all of the space-holding, balance-seeking, chakra-aligning yogis in your life, but try looking beyond the basics for any die-hards: a super breathable Infinalon unitard for her, and a yoga-specific hooded sweatshirt crafted from sustainable materials for jacket for him.
The Anti-Exercise Club
Not every pair of trainers is intended to pound the tarmac or take on torturous terrains. For some of us, a light saunter down the high street in our box-fresh kicks will do nicely, and there's a whole host of new release kicks just waiting to be unwrapped. Nike also have a selection of higher pricepoint pieces that verge on luxury for the sports fan who demands more from their wardrobe.
On The Floor
With studios now back open, we no longer have to make do with a Joe Wicks P.E. lesson in the front room to get our reps in. However, now that we're public-facing again an oversized t-shirt and pyjama shorts simply won't cut it. Instead, invest in quality uniform pieces ideally suited to breaking a sweat, from enjoyable printed leggings to moisture-wicking tees.
