If you couldn’t already tell from the wave of Christmas trees and festive decorations, the holidays are among us and in full swing. I don’t know about you, but the idea of purchasing gifts for others always is my favorite part of Christmas. The process of picking out that perfectly personal present is so fun and rewarding. This year, I’m sticking with brands and products that I trust and know are sure to please everyone on my list.

If you’re like me and haven’t already crossed some people off, why not get them something to help motivate them in the wellness department? I am a longtime fan of the brand Outdoor Voices. Their modern spin on athletic wear offers unique color ways and flattering shapes/designs for every body type. And, the quality is truly unparalleled. If I’m doing any sort of activity—whether it’s working out, running a quick errand, or lounging around the house—I throw on my favorite OV selects.

When deciding what to gift friends, family, and even my big kids this year, Outdoor Voices was a no-brainer. The brand has already put together a curated OV Gift Guide to make your holiday gift-buying experience as painless as possible. And, if you’re unsure where to start, their Rec Kits are always hit with anyone that gives or receives them. With the Rec Kits in particular, you scoop up two OV pieces at a discounted rate, and you can personalize the kit based on what styles and colors your recipient prefers. I personally love the Athena Crop Top and 3/4 Warm-Up Leggings, but if workout clothes aren’t really their speed, or you’re unsure of sizing, Outdoor Voices has tons of other amazing gift options—everything from bags to water bottles, and even gift cards!

New Years is a time when everyone seems to be ready and motivated to start the fresh year ahead off on a healthier foot. I think most people would agree that usually consists of a cleaner diet and eating habits, and, of course, concentrating on fitness and getting in shape. While I am definitely one of the masses that tries to incorporate all of the above, I think helping encourage anyone to get a jump-start on a healthier lifestyle is a always thoughtful gesture. So, whether someone on your list is a fitness buff, has never owned a gym membership, or falls somewhere in between, Outdoor Voices is a great place to start for gifts this season.

I haven’t mentioned the best news yet: Outdoor Voices is offering a 20% discount code to Bleubird followers that make a first time purchase on the site. If you’ve never shopped with OV before, use the code “Bleubird20” until 12/31/17. This does exclude kits and third-party merchandise, however. Happy holidays, and more importantly, happy shopping!

    So impressed with you. You look great and are such an inspiration in this dept. x

    Thanks for sharing. FYI I tried using this promo code and it was only for $20 off, not 20%.

    Great picks! If I could add one more tiny thing that is completely mind-blowing: Ignore this completely if you LOVE tying on your sneakers. I received these in my stocking for Christmas and they are a game changer for slipping on your running shoes. Tight fit that you love and enough give to slip on your sneakers without tying/untying! Revolutionary, right!? FYI: I am in NO WAY related to this product, but it is too great not to share.
