41 Stocking Stuffer Ideas for the Athlete

Have an athlete in the family or maybe you’re married to one? Out of ideas for the stocking this holiday? Read over this list and see if it generates any ideas for you:

For me, holiday shopping usually starts out fun, but then sometimes I run out of ideas. Because of my careers as a coach and a fitness-writer, I also tend to spend my time with healthy people who don’t just want a stocking full of chocolate and other holiday trangressions, either.

I am guessing if I experience this dilemma, some of you probably do, too. So I put this list together to help you generate ideas for the stocking. See if any of these are right for your hard-to-shop-for athlete. And if you have any ideas you’d like to share, please post in the comments!
