Nutribullet 600 Series Blender
RRP: $79.99 / £69.99, nutribullet.com
Offering incredible value for money, the Nutribullet 600 would make a great little gift and it won’t break the bank. The 600W motor makes short work of whizzing up shakes and smoothies, as well as fruit, veg and nuts, and we like the combination of the 23oz / 680ml and 17.3oz / 511ml cups with a detachable handle for healthy nutrition on the go.
Jabra Elite 8 Active
RRP: $199 / £199, jabra.com
The Elite 8 Actives are an ideal gift for the runners in your life. We were impressed with how securely they fit for wing-free buds and sound quality is first class, with a deep, rich sound and no distortion no matter how high you crank them.

Pulseroll Vyb Pro Vibrating Foam Roller
RRP: $138 / £129.99, pulseroll.com
The Pulseroll Vyb Pro is like two presents in one. You get the traditional recovery benefits of a foam roller with the bonus of massage gun-like controllable vibration for deeper tissue work. There are four speed settings between 1,200rpm and 3,500rpm and a pulse mode but our favourite feature is the finger-mounted remote control, which makes changing speeds a breeze mid-recovery session.

Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro Titanium
RRP: $435 / £350, consumer.huawei.com
The Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro would make a classy gift for your significant other. It’s one of the more classically styled pieces of wearable tech and both titanium and ceramic versions look equally at home with sports gear or evening wear. Long battery life, plenty of fitness features and 30m water resistance are just a few of the reasons why it’s one of our favourite sports watches.

Jordan Fitness Premium Urethane Dumbbells
RRP: from $53.26 / £40 a pair, jordanfitness.com
They might not be the easiest present to pick up, but they’ll certainly be the gift that keeps giving. These premium urethane dumbbells can be picked up in pairs, up to a whopping 165lb / 75kg. We like their substantial handles and the wide weight range, which makes them ideal for less seasoned lifters too.
TRX Rubber-Coated Kettlebell
RRP: from $59.95 / £59.95, trxtraining.com
These rugged, rubber-coated bells have powder-coated handles and are available in eight weights from 8.8lb / 4kg up to 88.2lb / 28kg. We like that each kettlebell is colour-coded, which makes weights easier to identify when you’re switching it up during a session.

WaterRower Original Series
RRP: From $1,099 / £1,099, waterrower.com
It might be difficult to wrap, but the WaterRower would make a wonderful gift for any cardio lover. It earns its place in the New Year Gift Guide, because it’s a rowing machine unlike any other, using a unique water flywheel for a smooth, realistic and immersive rowing experience. It’s as much a work of art as a piece of functional fitness equipment, but it’s by no means the most expensive. We’d go for the cherry out of the six high-end wooden finishes available.

JaxJox 22.6kg DumbbellConnect
RRP: $499 / £450, jaxjox.com
These space-saving adjustable dumbbells feature a digital docking station and performance tracking app? The JaxJox DumbbellConnect uses a USB-powered digital dock for weight selection and you can sync the app for real-time data such as reps, weight, sets, time, average power and total volume. We appreciate that JaxJox hasn’t forgotten the basics, either, with comfortable grooved handles and secure locking plates.

RRP: £749 – international shipping available, assault-fitness.co.uk
An air bike would make the perfect present for anyone looking to set up their own home gym. And the AssaultBike Classic is not only one of the best value air bikes around, it’s also seen as something of an industry standard. With a robust design, easy-to-access workouts, comfortable and adjustable contact points and a five-year warranty, it’s the first purchase we’d make when looking to set up a cardio pain cave at home.

TRX RIP Trainer
RRP: $229.95 / £229.95, trxtraining.com
The TRX RIP Trainer is our go-to bit of kit for core work, so we reckon it’d make a great gift for anyone into pilates or similar core-focused training. With a six-year guarantee it’s a real investment, and comes with a door anchor and carabiner, giving you options to use it indoors or outside. You get the medium 20lb / 9kg cord in the box, with four different resistance cords also available.

1MORE Fit Open Earbuds S50
RRP: £149.99, amazon.co.uk
These earbuds are a steal at the moment, with a 30%-off voucher knocking them down to just over £100. That gets you dedicated high performance sport headphones with IPX7 sweat and water-resistance, 38-hour play time, as well as fast and wireless charging capabilities. The S50 earbuds are available in dark grey or silver too.
