Christmas can be the most wonderful time of the year, full of family time, delicious food and receiving presents. 

It can also be a time of extreme stress and indecision, as you attempt to figure out what to buy for friends, family, in-laws, your kid's teacher etc. 

Luckily we're here to help, with a definitive Newshub Christmas gift guide series. 

In this instalment, we have a range of gifts for that friend or family member always on a health kick. Do they love a green smoothie? Are they up early on Christmas morning pounding the pavement?

Give them a gift they'll actually use with any of these health and fitness-based options!

A Fitbit 

If counting steps is their thing, get them a pedometer. If they want something that basically tracks the way their entire body is running, get them the new Fitbit Versa 2. It's a fitness smartwatch with Amazon Alexa built-in, 24/7 heart rate monitoring, will rank your sleep score and it can even guide you through personalised breathing sessions based on your heart rate – it looks good too! 

Activewear

We all know that sporty friend that never has enough activewear - even if they're just wearing it out for Sunday brunch. If you're looking for some snazzy new options, People Like Us has a heap of amazing colours and high-quality brands including US stalwart PE Nation. We love these Swish Bike Shorts or the Cross Body Bag.

Wireless earbuds

They've been more of a status symbol than anything else in 2019, but wireless earbuds are actually still super useful, especially for that friend who loves getting out for runs in the sunshine. The Jaybird Vista Wireless sport headphones are super light and super secure, meaning you don't have to worry about one popping out and getting lost underfoot. You can use the app to customise and control the sound - and block out the other gym grunters. 

Collagen 

You may not have heard the hype, but we guarantee your healthy mate definitely has. Collagen is the du jour supplement of 2019, due to its promises of banishing ageing and joint pain as well as helping hair and nails grow. We wrote about its holy grail status here

If you giving the gift of collagen this Christmas, we recommend either the Two Islands Collagen Beauty Powder, which can be easily mixed to a morning coffee or one of these beautiful Jeunora gift sets which are packaged up for you - no wrapping required.
