From pros to recreational players, here’s a quick list of no-fail Valentine’s Day gifts that any athlete would love.
Even if your language of love is not gift-giving, Valentine’s Day is one of those days in the year when you probably contemplate getting a little something for the ones you love most, from your family members to your significant other. So if this year, you’re wondering what you should get for the athletes in your life, we’ve got your back.
Here’s a quick list of no-fail Valentine’s Day gifts that will definitely put a smile on any athlete’s face.
For the racket sports lover
While you can technically wear any workout outfit while playing racket sports, we all know that players love to show up to the court, be it the tennis court or padel court, showing off some style. So why not treat the athlete in your life with some racket sports fashion staples this Valentine’s Day?
You can never go wrong with a classic tennis dress or skirt, or an all-white Wimbledon-esque outfit. Not only will they love it, but there’s no doubt that this gift will be put to good use.
For the long-distance lover
For the athlete in your life who loves going the distance — from marathon running to triathlon racing — instead of getting them another running belt or another pair of socks, why not go for something they might not necessarily think of getting for themselves this Valentine’s Day?
Not every athlete will think of getting themselves a personal safety alarm that they can carry around with them wherever they go in case of emergencies — yet, it’s definitely something that will make them feel even just a little bit safer every time they hit the road.
For the outdoorsy athlete
For the athlete in your life who loves being outdoors and in nature, make sure they remember to stay cool with an insulated water bottle. You can’t go wrong with this one — every athlete needs to stay hydrated, especially when they spend hours outdoors.
But, if you want to take it one step further, why not add a cooler to the mix? This is sure to make any group workout just that much cooler.
For the busy golfer
If you know someone who would always much rather be on the golf course than anywhere else in the world, but just can’t seem to find enough tee time, bring the golf to them instead.
Get the golfer in your life a practice net they can easily set up at home, giving them the luxury of getting to practice any time they want. This is sure to make work-from-home days a lot more fun.
For the all-around athlete
For the true no-fail Valentine’s Day gift for the athlete in your life, go for a fitness smartwatch. There are tons of options to choose from, which means you could get one you’re sure they’d use — an upgrade from their current one, a watch that caters to their specific sport, or one that fits their style the best.
Whatever you decide to gift your loved ones, we’re sure that it will make them feel truly special this Valentine’s Day.
