Though this may be the merriest time of year, the most stressful part can often be hunting for gifts for our loved ones. We’ve made it simpler for you this year by breaking down our wishlist into categories that fit some personalities
This is the friend you’ll always find at the gym. Whether they’re signing up for the 6AM class, or going for an evening jog, they have a passion for all things athletic. Some great gifts and goodies we’ve found for this fitty are listed below:
Muscle Mary Blender & Protein Powder
Yes, we could just throw our protein powder into a protein shaker… but what fun is that when you could have a mini portable blender that fits right into your gym bag! This adorable little blender is not only convenient, but is also made of BPA-free non toxic materials and is eco-friendly.
And what better way to use your new mini blender than trying it out with protein from Muscle Mary or KIN.
Muscle Mary’s protein powders are available in various flavours; Vanilla Dream, Plain Jane, Caramel Kiss, Chocolate Crush, and Berry Haze. The protein is made with premium pea and hemp ingredients along with organic flavours that are suitable for those on low GI, paleo and keto diets.
KIN is another great protein brand. Spending 15 years in the fitness industry, the creator develop the formula to not only build muscle mass, but also to combat protein bloat and assist with digestion. This vegan protein blend is made with 6 natural ingredients and available in Whey or No Whey Options and has a long list of flavours to choose from. There will be no issue trying to find the best option for your picky friends or family!
