On the first day of Christmas...

My true love gave to me! Hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving, and I love reading all the Turkey Trot stories. Mr. R and I had a wonderful time with his family and I made pumpkin chocolate chip cookies that were delightful. Mr. R said they were the best thing I've ever made... which isn't say too much ;) Anyways, I know your all dying to start off this list, so let's do this! 

So this is the first of the many upcoming Christmas posts that will include great gift giving ideas to fellow running friends, exercise groupies, or anyone who loves endorphins. The first gift is one that is practical and very cute at the same time. I am one that travels to the gym after work and I know the importance of having a gym bag that is also a multi-tasker. I really love having my own yoga mat as well for the classes I take there, and bringing a different bag for my clothes, and my mat is too much to lug in back and forth!

I introduce to you the "Everything Fits Gym Bag" by Gaiam. It's eco-friendly and super chic black and lime green. Its roomy interior has a zippered pocket, an elastic pocket and a key tether. The bag has a vented outside compartment which would be good for storing shoes, wet clothes or a towel. A water bottle can be stashed in the outside pocket and there are also inside and outside holsters for a cell phone or MP3 player. A great feature about this bag is also the straps on the bottom of the bag that you can strap in your mat with. It's a little bit pricey at $60 a pop, but for the convenience of having everything in once place, I defiantly would pick one up for any gym loving person in your life.


Get on HERE

Enjoy the long weekend. Tomorrow I'll blog about another great christmas idea.

Good idea starting this list, especially since I am horrible at shopping for the women in my life. Keep 'em coming!

(*by 'women', I'm being all inclusive of the female gender...mom, sis, gf, et al. In no way, am I a referring to a horde of girls I keep at bay.)
