Traditional anniversary gifts, like tin on the tenth and china on the 20th, have their place. But what do you do when your fitness-focused husband simply wouldn’t appreciate any of the traditional ideas associated with marital milestones?
Choosing an incredible gift for your wedding anniversary should never be stressful, especially if you want it to top your wedding day! Take a look at our great fitness-focused ideas to get you started.
Bike Phone Mount
If he cycles, whether it’s to the office and back or he’s a long-distance race regular, he’ll appreciate a top-quality bike phone mount. The SP Connect Bike Bundle II makes it easier for him to keep his phone handy when he hits the road on two wheels. The bundle features a universal clip that fits most bike frames, a fitted case for his phone, a weather cover, and a StandTool.
Looking for a wedding anniversary gift that won’t be limited to his fitness sessions? Surprise him with a smartwatch. The Apple Watch Series 6 is a real cracker. Apart from the ever-helpful function of keeping accurate time, the new smartwatch lets him take an ECG, measure his blood oxygen, measure his workouts, track his activity throughout the day, and receive emails, messages, and notifications. The Apple Watch also has Fall Detection and emergency SOS functions.
Is your husband one of the many fitness fans who use music to focus and to stay motivated while walking, jogging, running, or at the gym? Choose wireless headphones for his anniversary gift. There’s no worrying about getting tangled up in cables, and they make it easy to listen to his favourite tunes. Try Bose SoundSport Wireless. The in-ear headphones offer great sound, and they’re lightweight and sweat-resistant. What’s more, there’s six hours of battery life, so it’s good for a few sessions before it needs recharging.
Portable Soft Cooler
Does your husband enjoy getting out and into nature for his fitness training? Consider giving him a portable soft cooler. There’s nothing worse than getting back from a hike or a run and trying to quench your thirst with car-warmed water or sports drink. With a cooler such as the Yeti Hopper M30, he’ll be able to enjoy the cold drink he deserves. The bag has a wide mouth that’s easy to open and close, and it’s durable too.
It’s not easy to get motivated to go jogging when it’s dark, cold, or wet outdoors. Give your fitness-focused husband an anniversary gift that makes it easy for him to stick to his training regime when he’d rather not set a foot out the front door. Indoor treadmills are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, and some are even designed to be especially portable. Take a look at the Reebok ZJET 400 treadmill. It has 12 levels of electronic incline and a 16km/h max speed, and the LCD screen displays key workout data alongside live heart rate stats. Plus, there are 24 pre-set workouts.
An Electric Muscle Stimulator
Electric muscle stimulation (EMS) is often thought of in terms of weight-loss, and while the jury is still out on that point, EMS has been used effectively for muscle rehabilitation. That’s why so many fitness enthusiasts use electric muscle stimulators after particularly gruelling workouts. If your husband pushes himself, make his anniversary gift a device such as the Marc Pro Plus. It comes with electrodes, wires, a charger, carry case, and manual.
A Gym Bag
If he leaves the house to exercise, whether he goes to a gym or the local footie, cricket, or squash club, he needs a towel, clothing, shoes, water, deodorant, his phone, and more. If he needs a gym bag upgrade, get him one as an anniversary gift. A bag with various compartments will make it easy for him to keep it organised (and to separate his sweaty clothes from the rest of the contents), but if that wouldn’t quite suit him, there are plenty of other options to choose from.
Indoor Putting Green
Golf’s great, but it’s not the best sport to play in the rain. If the UK’s climate poses frequent challenges for your husband, give him a wedding anniversary gift that offers him the chance to get some practice in. One option is an indoor putting green, such as the Puttout Putting Mat. The 2m-long mat uses high quality cut-pile to replicate putting on a medium-fast green.
If he’s an outdoor runner, a new pair of running shoes could be the best anniversary gift for a fitness-focused husband. New Balance’s Fresh Foam More Trail v1. are durable, feature a Fresh Foam midsole for lightweight cushioning, a hardwearing outsole, and a water-repellent, breathable upper mesh.
Waterproof MP3 Player
Who said that he can’t listen to his favourite songs when he swims to stay fit? Thanks to Sony’s 4GB Sports Wearable MP3 Player, his favourite beats can help him stay focused through crawl, breaststroke, backstroke, and butterfly. The headphones are waterproof (even in salt water) to a depth of 2m, their sealed design stops sand, grit, and dust from getting in, and they have 12 hours of battery life.
A Yoga Mat
Support his yoga practice by giving him the gift of a new mat on your wedding anniversary. Choose one that is made from a good-quality material, non-slip, and easy to clean. Take a look at some of the best yoga mats available in the UK and get one that suits his personality and his level of practice.
An Adrenalin Adventure
If your husband is the kind of man who loves his sporting activities with a side of adrenalin, why not opt for an adventure experience he’ll never forget? Whether you book him a skydive, mushing with huskies, a deep-sea dive or the chance to trek through the mountains, he’s sure to enjoy testing his resilience in a new environment.
A Portable Blender
Good nutrition is an essential aspect of staying fit and healthy, and there’s no denying the power of a fresh smoothie.
Let your anniversary gift to your husband enable him to conveniently enjoy smoothies at work, at home, and after exercising. Portable blenders such as Crushed It! are cordless, fitted with stainless steel blades, and easy to clean. He can pack it with cut fruit before leaving home, or he can keep his fruit and veg in containers, all ready for packing into the blender during his lunch break.
We hope you’ve found the ideal gift for your fitness-focused husband in this list, and if not, we hope it’s given you another great idea of how you can spoil him. Happy anniversary!
