Top 10 Gifts for the Walking Woman

Give the walking woman in your life a gift that says you cheer her on in her active lifestyle.


Fitbit has a big share of the market for fitness bands and smart pedometers, for good reasons. With a Fitbit, you can track your steps, distance, calories, diet, and sleep quality. While the older models lacked style, newer models including the Fitbit Alta, Alta HR, Flex 2, and Charge 2 have interchangeable bands so you can go from sporty to glam in seconds. You can view your data on your smartphone via a Bluetooth-connected app or on your computer via a USB receiver. See your history of activity. You can compete in challenges with friends. For a less-expensive model that doesn't track sleep, there is the Fitbit Zip, and if she's really into her workouts, she may love the Ionic superwatch.


It's time to cut the cord, especially if your walker is upgrading to an iPhone that no longer has an audio jack. A pair of Bluetooth running headphones or earbuds will let her listen on the go. These Senso sports earphones have sweatproof earbuds. The flexible ear hooks help keep them in place during walking and gym workouts. They have an 8-hour battery life to make it through longer walks before recharging. 


A home treadmill is a great gift to keep moving in every kind of weather. The Nordic Track C1650 packs a lot into a budget-priced folding treadmill. The motor is a powerful 3.5 CHP that can sustain a maximum speed of 12 mph and accommodate users up to 300 pounds. The walking woman can enjoy the 10-inch web-enabled and iFit-compatible touchscreen. She can enjoy 34 different workout apps or browse any web content. Choose a Google Maps route and it will adjust the incline to match the terrain. The treadmill is designed to reduce noise and vibration. It has grip pulse monitors and is compatible with wireless chest strap heart rate monitors. It has incline up to 12 percent but doesn't have decline.


The FlipBelt lets her carry her essentials on walks and during workouts when she doesn't have enough pockets and doesn't want to wear a fanny pack or backpack. Just tuck items into the belt and flip it over for increased security. It has a key clip to make sure you don't lose your keys. It's great for wearing on long walks and races such as half marathons to keep items handy and secure.


Fitband Bling and Funktional Wearables make fun and lovely covers and band attachments for a wide variety of fitness trackers. Dress it up for the office or evening wear.


She'll get great compliments at charity walks, half marathons, and in the gym when wearing comfortable and colorful B-Skinz shorts or leggings. They come in fun designs from Galaxy and Black Explosion to animal patterns, or even plain old solids. They are super soft and so comfortable that she will want to wear them even when not racing. They wick away moisture and give you excellent freedom of movement. They also have skorts, spankies, and sports bras.


Pamper your walker's feet with the gift of a foot spa. Various models come with features such as massaging bubbles, whirlpool, buffers, and heating to keep the water warm. After a nice long walk, a foot soak feels fabulous. Combine this gift with bath salts to add to the water to soothe any hot spots or dry up small blisters.


For the walker who doesn't want a pedometer linked to her smartphone, the Omron HJ-321 is a good choice. This slim and silent pedometer is accurate if you carry it in your pocket or purse, so you aren't limited to wearing it on your waistband.

Socks are the best stocking stuffers. Sockguy socks are fun socks in colorful designs. But they are also serious socks made of core-spun CoolMax to wick away moisture and help prevent blisters.
