Gifts that Workout


The past few years, my friends have often gifted activewear to me knowing it’s something I’ll enjoy using every day. And with the holiday season upon us, it’s something I really enjoy giving my friends and family (and myself, too). I love candles as much as the next girl, but you can’t beat giving a gift that might help a friend reach a fitness goal–and one that will actually get used weekly for months and years to come.

I was so excited when Lucy Activewear reached out to me about a partnership for their #GiftsThatWorkout campaign since it’s a brand I’ve worked with (on The Everygirl). And the past few years, it’s taken over my drawer full of workout clothes.

And as someone who runs a lifestyle website to inspire all creative, career driven women to lead their best life, that’s something that is very important to me. Then there’s the quality and style. I’ve tried so many different brands and always come back to Lucy since they have the very best leggings, joggers, jackets, and tanks that are perfect for just about everything.

Activewear is the perfect gift for women who like barre, spinning, lifting, and running. Or for women who want to be comfortable when they’re running errands or enjoying a lazy weekend. But more than anything, new activewear is a great gift to give yourself, or one to add to your holiday wish list. No, new workout pants aren’t going to wake you up and drive you to the gym, but you will feel better wearing them, and you’ll feel a little more together at that post-workout brunch.

I’m not one to focus on resolutions, but a new year means a new start, is a great time to try a new workout in some cute and comfortable new pants. I mean, how cute are these and these? (ps. I’m wearing these right now).


My outfit:
Pants – Revolution Run Tight Reflective
Tank – Workout Racerback
Hoodie – Meet the Mat Hoodie
Socks – Studio Grip Socks

I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite Lucy pieces below. The heather grey pants and hoodie are two of the softest, coziest pieces I’ve ever owned, and are perfect for everything from lounging to the gym.

Lucy is offering 1 lucky winner (2) $100 gift card–one for the winner and one for a friend! And as we go into the new year, I’d love to hear some of your fitness goals and who you’d give a gift card to if you won.
