We know gifting in this holiday season can feel tough — but one thing we can all agree on is that it’s better to buy local. While there are countless amazing offerings that support local businesses, we picked a few of our favorites here to get you started. And we included both experiential options, in the form of virtual or outdoor classes and sessions, and tangible gifts you can wrap up and present. (Looking for still more options? Check out this guide to some unexpected gifts you can pick up in 2020.) Happy shopping!

A barre box from Tuck

Tuck Barre & Yoga is currently offering a giftable “barre” box ($49) that includes a set of sliders, a pair of 2.2-pound weights, a ball and a set of five bands. It can be paired with a gift card in your preferred amount or a t-shirt, like the “Tuck around and find out” tank for $25.

A bath-time bundle from Three Queens

A Bath Time Bundle ($40) will steep your friend or family member in blissful relaxation. (You know we love a hot bath.) This set includes a yoga hand towel, a candle and bath salts. It pairs well with class gift certificates or gift cards for private yoga sessions, or perhaps a meditation cushion and MetaAnatomy book set ($95).

A strength-club membership from City Fit Girls

This online resistance training program is $15 per month and includes five weekly workouts, a Facebook community, and app-based tips, coaching cues and video demonstrations. If you know someone who’s told you they’re looking to commit to a strength training routine in 2021, this could be a perfect (and thoughtful!) fit.

A comfy long-sleeve tee from Spirits Up!

The new bright green “How to Grow” long-sleeve t-shirt ($55) from local health-and-wellness organization Spirits Up! is an ideal gift with a meaningful slogan that your loved one can wear while hiking and exploring the great outdoors or just lounging at home.

A yoga subscription to Studio 34

Along with gift cards for any amount of your choosing, Studio 34 offers a monthly yoga subscription for $21.21 a month (following a 14-day free trial), so loved ones can pick and choose the classes that appeal to them.

A crystal water bottle from Sabbatical Beauty

This dreamy water bottle ($65) from skincare and wellness company Sabbatical Beauty holds both hydration and energetic crystals to create a “crystal elixir.” The crystals can be swapped later on, too, so your giftees can switch it up with gems they already have, or purchase a different set.

Mishal incense cones from Lumos

We love a good incense cone — these from Mishal ($27) burn pleasantly in scents like cedar and orange without the muss and fuss that incense sticks require (but hey, to each his own). Pair them with some of Lumos’s Lord Jones CBD gumdrops ($45), and you’ve gifted someone a perfectly mellow evening.

A HIIT workout from RippedPHL

For the person in your life who can’t get enough HIIT, RippedPHL’s “Philly shutdown special” includes a month of HIIT classes, both outdoor and livestream, for $65. You can also gift an individual virtual personal training at $50 a session, or a $19.99 per-month subscription to the virtual class program only.

An Ayurveda intensive with Vitality

Vitality’s six-month Seasonal Ayurveda Intensive ($150 per month) kicks off January 6th and supports the seasonal transition from winter into spring. This program teaches about Ayurveda, and because it requires a big personal commitment and dedication, you’ll want to talk it over in detail with your gift recipient ahead of time. For another option, we recommend shopping the Sweets x Vitality collab for some artful gear or a jar of CBD honey.

A yoga mat from Yoga Habit

Has your friend’s old yoga mat seen better days? No worries: Yoga Habit has got reversible Lululemon-brand three-millimeter and five-millimeter rubber yoga mats with grippy top layers (the 5-millimeter comes in a variety of fun colors) for $58 or $68, respectively, and they can be shipped directly to you for easy gifting.

Virtual spin classes from Revel

As long as your giftees own stationary bikes, they can enjoy Revel classes from the comfort of home. Gift cards are available in a variety of amounts; virtual classes are $35 for unlimited or $20 for three.

A virtual sound session with Luna Maye

Local sound artist Luna Maye offers gift cards for an amount of your choosing, which your loved one can put towards a soundscape digital download ($12 per download) to relax with at home, a private virtual sound session ($88), or another custom offering.

A gratitude gift set from Franklin & Whitman

The Gratitude Gift Set from Franklin & Whitman ($49.95) includes a facial botanical steam of your choosing, along with a gratitude journal and a brightly colored pen with a motivational phrase on it.

… and a decorative tennis racquet from DNA Floral

Okay, so this isn’t exactly going to help anyone’s fitness or wellness. But they’re so pretty, and sports-inspired — particularly if you’ve got a tennis lover in your life. The limited-edition dried florals racquets ($120) from DNA Floral in West Philly will surely make them smile.
