Last Minute and LOCAL: Gifts for the Fitness Fanatic from Female-Owned Businesses
If you know me at all, you know that I LOVE to give gifts. There doesn’t have to be an occasion. I often just give little “sussies” or “happies,” for no reason other than I saw it and thought you’d like it! The only thing I love more than giving gifts is buying them from local, female-owned businesses. Check out my “Last Minute LOCAL Gift Guide for The Fitness Fanatic.” These items will surprise and delight all your fierce, fit, female friends both in and out of the gym--while supporting our local economy (and our local boss babes) all at the same time.
Judith March Baseball Caps
You KNOW I rarely work out (or go anywhere for that matter) without a ball cap on—and I’m very picky about the way they fit. These cute caps from Judith March are a perfect style—not too tall, not too short, and they have mesh backs for breathability. Plus, who wouldn’t love the fun colors and sassy phrases like “Taco Belle,” or “Tired As A Mother?” Pick one up at Adelante Boutique in the Pearl, or at adelanteboutique.com $31
BuDhaGirl All Weather Bangles
I love to look “pulled together,” but when you live the majority of your life in sweaty workout clothes—well, let’s just say accessorizing is tricky. Enter BuDhaGirl All Weather Bangles at Pinky’s Boutique. Weightless, soundless, and waterproof, these bangles don’t clang, and can stand up to your sweat! More than just pretty each bracelet in the set is meant to represent an intention for your day. Available in lots of colors including the popular Rose Gold. $99-$119 at Pinky’s Boutique, 4215 McCullough Ave.
Lord Jones Stiletto Cream
Perfect for runners, cyclists, or your friend who loves to sport her sky-high-stilettos, this CBD-infused cream rejuvenates tired feet with a blend of coco butter, shea butter, olive oil, and fruit acids. A great gift for the girl who has everything. $70 at Aquarius Boutique, 6704 N. New Braunfels, or at shopaquariusboutique.com.
After she slathers the foot cream on her tired tootsies, she’ll love sliding her feet into these super soft Brown Alpaca Slippers. The shearling footbed is the ultimate luxury for sore soles. $140 at Tiny Finch in the Pearl or online at thetinyfinch.com
Hybrid Canteen in “Glampagne”
