The holidays are here, which means everyone is scrambling to find the perfect presents for their loved ones. Personally, I always leave the hardest people to shop for at the bottom of my list (like an absolute rookie, I know), and those people are definitely my fitness fanatic BFFs who already seem to have all of the cutest leggings, latest gym gadgets, and high-tech headphones money can buy. When your friends seem to have everything, and your wallet has nothing, it can be easy to lose hope. But trust me, a few of these gifts for athletes under $20 are sure to make your fittest friend's jaw drop and save your wallet from total financial trauma.
It's already stressful enough having to pick out a gift that an athlete doesn't already own in seven different colors (I'm looking at you, Nike Pros and S'well water bottles). But aside from that, a lot of fitness products and accessories are actually expensive AF. To make matters worse, once you finally find the more reasonably priced items, things quickly start to get tacky, boring, and simply undesirable for your beloved giftee.
Have no fear, my friend, because these bad boys are all budget-friendly, while still ensuring that your BFF will absolutely slay while killin' it at whatever sport she plays on the daily. So, when you're feeling stumped on what to give to your sporty pal this Christmas and Hanukkah, these eight gifts are bound to make the cut.
