The Mobot

The Mobot combines two essential recovery habits – rehydrating and foam rolling – into one cool unit, making everyone wonder why it hasn’t been thought of before. Standard-sized foam rollers are cumbersome, but the Mobot is just as effective and no bigger than your average water bottle. It’s offered in a variety of fun colors and easily attaches to your backpack. “Now I really have no excuse to foam roll… and be well-hydrated!” says social media intern Jamie Lebowitz. Any gym lover will be happy to receive a gift that makes recovery so convenient. PRICE: $40. WHERE TO FIND: mobotnation.com

Jawbone UP4

The Jawbone UP4 is the coolest-looking, most comfortable and most stylish fitness tracker for your wrist. It not only tracks my steps and sleep, its heart-health monitoring records both my resting heart rate and passive heart rate. The coaching app also gives me encouragement to keep active during the day and helpful tips to enhance and improve my sleep quality. In the morning, it wakes me up silently by vibrating my wrist for the time I’ve set. This means it doesn’t wake my husband when I get up for an early-morning run! You can also connect your American Express card, so that you can tap to pay for things while you're out (literally) running errands. PRICE: $79.99. WHERE TO FIND: amazon.com

If you have someone who loves shooting selfies, videos and group photos on your holiday list (yes, I admit, it's me!), we have found the coolest and most useful gift: the Mega Tiny Anti-Gravity Case. It's a case that doesn't feel sticky to the touch, but that actually enables you to stick your phone to almost any flat, smooth surface – including glass, mirrors and whiteboards – to capture the perfect hands-free selfie, group shot or video. In comparison to selfie sticks, this case is incredibly handy because it's always on your iPhone. The Anti-Gravity Cellphone Case helped me to capture so many great group shots at important events throughout the year without someone's arm needing to be seen in the shot holding the camera. The Anti-Gravity Case is available for iPhone 7, 7 Plus, iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, iPhone 5s and Galaxy S6 Edge. PRICE: $29.99. WHERE TO FIND: megatinycorp.com

LifeProfile Genetic Nutrition Assessment

Home genetic tests are all the rage, but not all of them are as actionable as the LifeProfile FUEL test. It tests for food sensitivities, metabolic rate, food breakdown and vitamin deficiencies, meaning that you can change the way you eat based on your results for a happier, healthier you. “In a few weeks I found out some really interesting information about myself. For instance, I discovered that I don’t metabolize fats well, and now I take an enzyme after fatty meals,” says editorial team member Valaer Goldsworthy. “What is most helpful, though, is knowing which nutrients I’m genetically inclined to lack. Rather than taking the supplement du jour, I know what I really need to be supplementing — and what I don’t.” PRICE: $149. WHERE TO FIND: orig3n.com

Spire Stress Tracker

We often forget about our breathing because it’s a totally automatic human function. However, irregular breathing can cause anxiety, fatigue and interrupted sleep. The Spire aims to draw awareness to your breathing. It works by tracking your breathing on the aesthetically minimal Spire app, differentiating between calm, focus and tense minutes. It’ll vibrate when you’ve had a few consecutive minutes of tense breathing and remind you to take a deep breath. “My favorite feature is when it tells me to take a deep breath, because it actually does help me to be more conscious of my stress levels and to calm down,” LIVESTRONG.COM editorial intern Hoku Krueger says.

Just one Downward Dog on this mat and you’ll be convinced that Jade Yoga mats are the best you’ve ever put your hands (and feet) on.

These mats have the perfect amount of grip and cushioning, and they don’t slip, even on my shiny, hardwood floors. What’s more, they’re made sustainably in the U.S. from natural rubber as opposed to synthetic rubber (i.e., PVC, PER, TPE, EVA). Plus, Jade Yoga plants a tree for every mat sold. This mat is a great gift for the eco-friendly yogi in your life. If you get the teal color (like the one I have), Jade donates $5.00 from every Teal mat sold to help find an early-detection test for ovarian cancer, which kills thousands of women every year.
