A New Tracker

Nothing says New Year’s resolution like a new gadget to track fitness, sleep and much more. Not sure which one is right for you? See our fall gadget “want” list here, and learn about some differences between trackers and smartwatches here.

Cross-Training Challenge

For the group-fitness fanatic on your list, how about a class card at his or her favorite studio? Or better yet, shake things up with a new challenge, such as an aerial yoga class. Pictured: Air Fit Chicago

Tunes To-Go

Walkers or runners love options for easy listening. Gift a Spotify premium membership for ad-free music streaming or an Audible membership for audiobooks that can be streamed offline. Pair this with a pair of bluetooth headphones, and your loved one is truly good to go.

A Cute Carryall

It’s time for that worn duffel to get an upgrade: A stylish backpack or gym bag makes winter commutes more fun. Pictured: Matt & Nat ‘Fabi’ Faux Leather Laptop Backpack

Fun Threads

Nothing makes exercise more fun than new gear. Treat your fit friend (or gym rat wannabee) to new tights, a tank or a comfortable pullover. Everyone loves a gift card, too. Pictured: Rhone Apparel Short Sleeve

Healthy Sleep Soother

A lack of a.m. light in the winter can lead to a case of the blues — or even full-blown serious depression. A dawn-simulating alarm clock helps fight back, and create more-relaxing early mornings. Pictured: Philips Wake-Up Light
