6 Perfect Gifts for the Fitness Freak

Most of us know at least one person who is obsessed with fitness. While you deal with stress by downing pints of ice cream or beer (or both), the Fitness Freak combats it by going for long runs or spending extra time in the gym. “It helps me clear my head,” she says. Ben & Jerry’s helps you do the same, but we’re all different people, right?

You’re actually a little jealous that her go-to coping mechanism involves doing something healthy (rather than ingesting, you know, sugar and booze). And while your New Years’ Resolution will likely be centered around making a promise to yourself to get it together and exercise regularly, only to break it around mid-January, the Fitness Freak is resolving to do two-a-day workouts at least three times a week. Spoiler alert: that’s a promise she’ll keep. 

Your fit friend is going to need more workout gear as she continues to amp up her insane exercise schedule, so help her reach her goals in style with these awesome fitness gifts. Read it on Parade

6 Gifts for Hip Kids & Their Semi-Hip Parents 

It’s a huge responsibility to have kids, not just because they require a ton of work, but also because the choices you make determine the type of person your kid is going to turn out to become. Mission critical for parents: raise someone who turns out to be a decent human being. The world needs it. More than that, you also want to raise a kid who’s intelligent and aware, or “woke”, as people say nowadays, a citizen of the world. Sure, this can veer towards precociousness when a five-year-old asks the server whether the chicken fingers on the kids’ menu were humanely raised, or has an opinion on which of the jazz greats was the best, but we’ll let it slide. Some of us were obnoxious kids at one point, too.

For the hip kid in your life (and their semi-hip parents, who are trying very hard and are very, very tired), here are 6 awesome gifts to help them stay woke. Read it on Parade.

18 Awesome Gifts for Everyone 

Around this time of year, you start getting inundated with gift guides in nearly every magazine, website, or social media feed you happen to be looking at.  Each one promises all of the answers to what you’re looking for—which is, of course, to find gifts that your loved ones will like without having to put too much thought or effort (or hard-earned cash) into it.  Right?  We see you.

When reading those gift guides, though, you inevitably find something you know [insert family member here] will like, only to click on it and find that it costs $475. Who spends $475 on a scarf? you wonder.  Why would The New York Times gift guide do this to me? They know I don’t even pay for a subscription to their website.

Sure, fancy product round-ups can be aspirational (that’s what every buyer’s guide in magazines like Vanity Fair is), but this time of year, you’re actually using these guides to find stuff to buy, without, you know, having to take out a second mortgage on your home.

Never fear—we’ve put together a list of 18 great gifts that will hopefully help check off multiple people on your shopping list, all priced at under $150. Read it on Parade.

7 Gifts for the Busy Professional 

If you had to guess where he is at any given moment, there are two safe bets: an airport bar or in the office, working late. Whenever you’re with him, he’s head down, looking at his phone, muttering something like “Sorry, sorry, just gotta respond to this one email.” His focus seems to be splintered in one million directions and that’s probably because he’s being pulling in exactly one million directions. Take pity on this busy professional who’s intent on climbing the ladder by getting him gifts that’ll make his harried days and jam-packed schedule a little easier.  Read it on Parade.

Gifts for Everyone Under $100

Over the next few weeks, you're going to be bombarded with gift guides from everywhere (including here!)—their presence screaming, "HURRY!  YOU DON'T HAVE MUCH TIME TO FIND THE PERFECT GIFT FOR LITERALLY EVERY PERSON THAT YOU LOVE!"  Talk about pressure.  You click on a gift guide that guarantees perfect suggestions for things that "mom" will love, even though nothing in the resulting gift guide is anything your actual mom would actually love.  Who is this fictional woman?  Why are gift guide writers so confident that every mom will love the same 10 things?

So, we decided to break the mold for a hot minute and defy categorization.  We just rounded up cool gifts for under $100.  Maybe your mom will like something on this list, maybe she won't.  Maybe in perusing this list, you'll find something your ungrateful brother or your work wife might like, so you can finally cross them off your list and get back to the important stuff—like worrying about the future.  Read it on Parade.
