To be fully honest with you, I have no idea how we got to November so quickly! I feel like yesterday was just Easter and my kids started counting down to Halloween. Then Halloween was here and all of a sudden, it is already November, with Thanksgiving coming running at us – and, it’s also my favorite time of year to get all of our loved ones a special Christmas gift!
If you were with me last year, you remember that we try to limit the amount of toys we get our children. For the parents and adult family members, we do the same and favor experiences and active gifts!
We figured that toys are rarely played with and we all prefer doing things as a family outside.
This year, I want to share Amazon’s Active Lifestyle Gift Guide with you, as I have been so impressed at how easy and convenient it can make Christmas shopping! You know I love businesses making parents’ lives easier and I am sucker for Amazon.
Christian and I have pretty much exclusively been shopping on Amazon since signing up to the platform in 2005. Last Sunday, we needed new light switches and hair gel for Mark and it was delivered to us the same day! Now, that makes my busy mommy heart HAPPY!
But without further ado, here are 5 reasons to use Amazon’s Active Lifestyle Gift Guide this Christmas season:
1- Give A Gift That Will Be Used
Whether you are shopping for a child or an adult, you want your gift to be cherished and used throughout the year.
Do a little bit of research and understand your friends’ and family’s hobbies and get them something they’ll be able to use and play with.
Amazon’s Active Lifestyle Gift Guide has all sorts of fun active gifts, from workout gear to dumbbells, balls, tents, and jogging strollers.
You will find ideas at all budget levels, even for friends and family members whom you might not know quite as intimately!

2- Encourage Those New Year Resolutions
We all have amazing intentions at the turn of the new year. Be the one helping your friends stick to them by giving them a gift that encourages them to get out and be active.
We’re getting Christian a new health and fitness smartwatch to keep him honest to his resolution to get more active and keep an eye on his exercise level throughout the year!
3- Enjoy Super-Fast Shipping
So Christian is getting his Christmas gift a little early this year since his old health and fitness smartwatch broke a few months ago and he’s really been missing it.
I’m a big fan of Amazon and how easy they make shopping, and also how quickly we receive the products. In most cases, it is not even worth my time getting in traffic and going to the mall. We ordered his watch at 8:30PM on a Monday night and I woke up Tuesday morning with an app notification that the package had been delivered.
I was skeptical when I read that his smartwatch would be delivered by 8AM the next morning, but it was. It also came charged and he went to work with his new watch that morning!
4- Shopping Made Easy
This Amazon Active Gift Guide makes shopping easier than ever. While all of the products revolve around the same active / outdoors / healthy living theme, you can find a gift for everyone, at all budget levels.
Get your mom a new pair of sneakers, your brother Joe a sleeping bag, your sister-in-law a medicine ball, Junior a new trampoline, and your daughter an adjustable balance beam.
The selection is impressive and you are sure to find something for everyone! It’s the easiest one-stop shop. Forget coming up with ideas and looking them up one by one. Everything is in the gift guide!
5- Relax And Enjoy Your Holidays
Rest easy in knowing that you can get all of your shopping done in one place.Get everyone their special gift ordered and shipped to you from the comfort of your home, and receive everything way ahead of the Holidays so you can rest and enjoy the season.
