2017 holiday gift guide schimiggy

The Holiday season crept up on us realllll quick! Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on and be thankful of what we have. Christmas is not only the celebration of the birth of Jesus, it’s also become a holiday for spending time with friends and family. If you celebrate Christmas there may be some gift giving involved.

It’s fun to give and receive, however, “the most wonderful time of the year” can get a little stressful every once in a while. If you’re like me, I know you loathe crowded malls (the even more dreaded parking situation), the freezing cold, that additional 5 pounds and the last thing you to top your plate is trying to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list.

This Holiday season, give your loved ones the perfect gift to motivate them and support their fitness goals. Sometimes it takes having the perfect gear to make that healthy change.

The right activewear will inevitably make your loved ones look and feel better. Dress them in confidence with running shirts, yoga pants, gym shorts to help them make healthy positive changes to start off the New Year on the right foot. We guarantee they will thank you for making the dreaded task of working out so much more pleasant

I’m excited to announce my FIRST Holiday Gift Guide in collaboration with Carbon38! Below are my recommendations for the active gift receiver in your life. For my full review of shopping at Carbon38, head over here.
