Top 5 Best Friend Gifts For The Active Friend

Finding gifts can quickly become an overwhelming and stressful process, especially if you don’t know where to look. That’s why we’re here to offer an easy solution!

An active lifestyle is a demanding one, and a piece of workout wear can go a long way towards making things easier and more comfortable. If you’re shopping for someone who’s a fan of functional and fun gifts, look no further than the list below.

A thoughtful gift is often a well-researched one too, but fear not—we’ve done the research for you. We’re experts on the features and fabrics that make the highest quality workout gear one can find, so you can be confident you’re buying something to be proud of.

We’ve put together a list of high-quality gifts that you can be confident will get a ton of use and put a big smile on your friend’s face. Let’s dive in!

Women’s Recess Quarter Zip

So she’s active a lot—A LOT. We totally get it. There’s no off-season for working out, and we’re as impressed with her dedication as you are!

That doesn’t mean we can’t help make things easier and more comfortable for her. One of the best ways to do that is with the highly versatile, practical, and impressively stylish Recess Quarter Zip

Worry not —she’ll love this layer so much, she’ll be using it for much more than cold afternoons and windy mornings. Chances are you’ll see her sporting the quarter zip every chance she gets: around the house, out on the town, maybe even to or from a date!

But beyond the look, we guarantee she’ll be impressed with the quality features too. Our superior organic cotton and bamboo blend boasts exceptional moisture-wicking and breathability, along with UPF protection and 4-way stretch capabilities to boot. 

She’ll love it like a style piece and wield it like a workout piece. It’s the best of both worlds!

There’s no better feeling as a gift-giver than seeing your gift get frequent use, which is why this jacket is the first mention on our list.

Men’s Carrollton Fitness T-Shirt

Whether or not he’s right, chances are your active friend thinks he’s got some serious guns —and he’s ready to show them off to the world. In any case, the practical benefits of a great tee are hard to ignore. 

At the gym, out on the trail, at the beach, or around the house—there’s a use for a classic tee for any walk of life. We guarantee your active friends will appreciate adding one of these to their repertoire. 

A tee with this many great qualities and this sleek of a look will get even someone with the most simplistic wardrobe a bit excited.

It all starts with the fabric: an innovative blend of bamboo and organic cotton. Moisture-wicking capabilities, breathability, and a soft lightweight feel are just some of the awesome features he’ll come to appreciate with this top.

His active lifestyle will be better than ever after adding the Carrollton Fitness T-Shirt, and you’ll feel great knowing you played a part. Just be sure he still wears sunscreen!

Women’s Allways Crop Pocket Legging

For this next item, we must warn you: the rest of her closet might hate you because she’ll be wearing these ALL the time. Pair this gift with the Recess Quarter Zip, and you may just be getting her new favorite outfit.

The Allways Crop Pocket Legging is incredibly versatile, combining the best of fashion leggings and workout leggings into one piece that can do it all.

We can’t talk about this piece without mentioning the awesome fabric behind it. Our favorite organic cotton and bamboo blend is back, bringing all the functional features and comfort one could hope for. 

These leggings wick moisture and breathe, helping her keep cool and comfortable through whatever the day brings. The 4-way stretch build and lightweight design also add to the perfect feel.

Plus, they have pockets. Trust us—she’ll be excited.

Men’s Carrollton Lightweight Hoodie

Even if he won’t admit it, he gets cold too. A quality hoodie easily becomes a favorite in any man’s closet, and this will be no different. 

One of the best options out there, the Carrollton Lightweight Hoodie is built on the same superior fabric blend as many of our styles. Not many hoodies can boast moisture-wicking, breathability, anti-odor capabilities, and additional UPF 50+ sun protection, so this one really stands out from the pack.

The light weight makes this jacket perfect for the whole year. He can wear it on its own in the warmer months or add it to a number of layers in the winter to have options if he’s moving between indoor and outdoor activities throughout the day. 

Whether he’s trekking through the mountains or to and from class, your gift will get a ton of use, the ultimate good feeling for any gift giver.

Weekender Elastic Short (Men & Women)

It’s a terrible feeling when a gift falls short of expectations. Luckily, we guarantee your friends will love this gift. These shorts don’t fall short —they set a new bar. 

Despite the name, you’ll see your friends looking for every excuse to wear these Weekender Elastic Shorts every day of the week. 

They’re extremely comfortable and equally strong in style. Don’t let the light weight fool you, though—thanks to the high-quality fabric blend, these shorts are chock full of functional features too. Superior breathability, moisture-wicking, and a water-resistant finish mean they’re ready for anything. Two-way stretch enhances the feel and lifespan of the shorts too. 

These shorts will become a staple in any wardrobe. Your friends will be grilling you to find out how you found such a perfect pair! Don’t worry—you don’t have to tell them we helped.

The Wrap Up

The best gifts are thoughtful, find frequent use, and add something tangible and quality to the recipient’s life. If your friend is active, we’re sure a gift from our list will tick all those boxes (and then some).

Whether they work out in the gym every week or simply enjoy outdoor activities and adventures, there’s a use for every item here. They’re so comfortable, they’ll even work as leisurewear or maybe a new pair of pajamas!
