Every year the holidays sneak up on you like an item that has been hovering on the bottom of your to-do list, just waiting for the right moment to strike. Needless to say, the time has come, and if you’re reading this, you’re probably like the large majority of gift guide aficionados who realized their long list of “to buy” hasn’t gotten any shorter.
The good news is, you’re not alone. We understand your particularly complicated plight and the various reasons this year turned out just as last-minute as all the others—despite your most valiant efforts to ensure it didn’t. But it’s usually the gifts dreamt up in the last, frenzied minute that turn out to be the most loved. So to help you on your quest and to finally move ‘Christmas shopping’ from to-do to done, we’ve created the gift guide list for everyone on your list.
The best part is, we won’t tell if a few gifts for you fall into your shopping basket along the way.
You see each other every morning for heart-racing reps, but what you may not take away from those muscle-building sessions is what they asked Santa for. Instead of taking a stab in the dark—get them something you know they’ll love: Energy Aminos. After all, if there is one thing you can guarantee, it’s that they’ll be dragging their feet to get started on their first set, so give their pre-work a little kick-in-the-pants with this flavor-charged energy boost.
You know this time of year is filled with sweet treats galore—every party has a dessert table 3 times the size of your first apartment. But this year, treat your friend to a healthier alternative with our Protein Creams. You’re a good friend like that. You would never want anyone in your life to stop indulging. Instead, you’re here to help them “treat yo’ self” in a lower sugar, big-flavor way.
You didn’t hear it from us, but Protein Cookies make the best stocking stuffers.
If where-are-we-going-for-brunch-this-weekend were an acceptable middle name, this would surely be theirs. Every Sunday you spend together is overflowing with good food and great conversation, so gift this savvy breakfast-lover a healthy power-up with our unbelievably easy Protein Pancake mix. Toss in a jar of Protein Cream and you’ve just opened up a host of creative, delicious options. Want to up the ante? Print off a few of your favorite foodspring recipes and include them as part of this thoughtful, but more importantly, very tasty gift. Who knows, maybe next time they’ll be hosting brunch!
Yes, they’re arguably cooler than you, but that doesn’t mean they won’t benefit from little guidance! After all, you know cool things too, or you wouldn’t have found yourself reading this article—go ahead, give yourself a hearty pat on the back. Then give your friend an introduction to one of our trendsetting products: Vegan Protein Powder! You heard it here first. Our Vegan Protein Powder is the equivalent of a viral Tiktok. It’s just that good. The unique formula changes the protein powder game, while the flavors offered are the most fun on the market.
If you’ve read any of our articles, you know we are all about healthy and sustainable body goals. All the more reason we want your crash-diet-prone posse to join the #foodspringfamily. The best way for those looking to shed a few pounds is to get familiar with our line of Shape products. These will accompany even the most habit-fueled yo-yo dieter towards a healthier, more sustainable weight-loss path. Gift them a can of our Shape Shake 2.0. Then get them a cute Christmas card and write our URL inside because it’s not your job to get them to their feel-good body for the long term—it’s ours.
It might not seem like a glamorous gift, but if you have a friend who is always on the run, give them the gift of not stressing about their next meal and slide a few 12-packs of Protein Bars under the tree. Because we’ve all experienced it, you know there is nothing worse than coming home after a week on the road to work with nothing, and we mean nothing, in the fridge. This present is more than meets the eye, you’re giving the gift of peace of mind by loading their pantry with healthier meal and snack alternatives. Thoughtfulness really is the gift that keeps on giving.
It’s no secret, your buddy knows how to take care of their mind, but as their friend, you know they sometimes neglect their body. Gift them a collection of our high-quality vitamins and supplements to ensure they take care of every aspect of their well-being. Simply choose a selection of supplements that best align with your friend’s lifestyle and put it all in a cute box with a big ol’ bow!
Doesn’t it feel like we all have that one friend who is always doling out fitness advice? We’re pretty lucky, huh? But what can you do for the friend who constantly treats you to free tips, tricks, and classes? Gift them a pre-class boost, of course! Sparkling Aminos are a flavor-loaded, pre-workout drink sure to bring a smile to your friend’s face before they break a sweat. It’s a great gift for anyone who spends the better part of their days helping others through a hard workout.
We all have that friend who always saves room for dessert, so help them out by giving them tasty delicacies to satisfy their sweet tooth. Our Chocolate Lovers Bundle has everything a sweet aficionado would crave. So indulging their love for the milky goodness that is chocolate because every product in this gift-set has some serious extras—can anyone say protein?!
Your Friend Who is Always Checking Out the Latest Fitness Class
Variety is the spice of life, and your friend knows how to milk it. They’ve been to every gym, yoga class, cycling studio, and CrossFit box within a 10-mile radius. So why would you give this person something lacking in variety? You wouldn’t; it’s as simple as that. You want to provide them with an experience, a gift that will help them hone in on what they love—just like their ever-changing workout routine. Now, what might that be, you ask? Our flavor tester packs of Whey Protein, of course! Down the line, they might pick a favorite (will it be cookies and cream or strawberry?) but for now, indulge them in the gift of choice.
