Holiday Gift Guide: The Pilot, Flight Attendant or Traveler and Fitness Buff

From travel kits to gloves and water bottles, this list will cover you if you haven’t found out what to get that travel/fitness lover on your list.

December is getting close, time to get in on those Black Friday sales with these great gifts and stocking stuffers! This article contains some affiliate links.

1. The Original Travel Roller.

3. Blender Bottle GoStak Twist n’ Lock Storage Jars.

Protein powders and other pre & post workout supplements usually come in huge containers and have the consistency of baby powder. After traveling with them for years, I’ve learnt that ziplock bags really aren’t the way to go (lets just say it looked like I was using cocaine on my dresser…ugh.) these containers are small and connect together (and to your shaker!) To save space.

4. Blender Bottle Small.

After trying to mix my protein with a coffee cup and tiny plastic stir sticks…i can tell you a shaker bottle is worth taking up extra space. I like this one because it’s half the size of most.
