These fitness gifts are evidence that good things really do come in small packages. 

Forget big gifts that take up the entire front room – unpacking a stocking is the most exciting part of Christmas Day. Yet while novelty stocking fillers are great fun for five minutes, they often become one of the many gifts thrown in a drawer and forgotten about. 

This year, sustainable and thoughtful gifting is more important than ever, so why not give gifts your friends and family will treasure – beyond Boxing Day. If they still love home workouts, want to get better at yoga or are aiming to smash running goals in 2023, then these fitness-related gifts will be top of their wishlist.
