Your ultimate Christmas gift guide for every type of friend

Us Activemen can all be a little guilty of not showing enough love for our friends, but if there’s one time of year to do it sober - it’s at Christmas.

So dig deep and keep your friends sweet this Christmas to make sure they’re still around when you need them again in the new year.

Here are our top picks on what to buy your mates this year!


The Loyal Best Friend

This is the one who’s been there through thick and thin, helped you get to your best and been there at your worst. He knows all your flaws and still loves you no matter what.

Our top pick for your loyal friend is the Vel-oh Day Bag. Inspired by cycling in London, it’s handcrafted from water resistant waxed cotton and heavy duty webbing, this bag offers the versatility of carrying all your essentials and more.

The Fearless Adventurer

Whether it was skydiving, jet skiing or making you get that girl or guys number at the pub - he’s pushed you beyond your limits and given you memories you may not have experienced otherwise.

This guy deserves some recognition, and to get something he’ll truly appreciate - we’ve gone for the Lumos Helmet. Lumos is the world's first smart bike helmet that beautifully integrates lights, hard brake, turn signals, and helmet into a single cohesive whole.

The Brutally Honest Confidant

This guy may not be your best friend but he knows your deepest and darkest secrets (and you know his). There are no topics that can’t be discussed and definitely no judgement on either part. When you need the honest truth, this is where you’ll get it. And you know it’s going to be brutally honest.

So, how about some cheeky stocking fillers? We’ve chosen some undies from Bjorn Borg and socks by Primal Hoppenin’.

The Wise Mentor

We all need a friend who inspires us to be a better person without making us feel inadequate. Plus, being around such a person challenges us to better ourselves every day. They’re a few steps ahead of us in life and are always happy to offer advice to help us becomes better versions of ourselves.

Say thanks for all the guidance and advice you’ve had this year with a pair of So We Flow Twill Longs.

The Friendly Neighbour

These days, a lot of us don’t know our neighbours at all let alone well enough to buy a gift. But it’s a shame - they’re people too! And some can be some of the nicest and most helpful people you can come across.

If you’re one of the lucky ones who’s got friendly with the guy next door, say thanks for the beers with a pair of Pursue Fitness Shorts. They’re re-invented with new colours, fabrics and improved fits. The BreathEasy 3.0 shorts are a perfect all year round, relaxed fit for in and out of the Gym.

The Work Pal

Did you know you spend more than 50% of your waking hours at work? It’s a long time to be around your work mates so it’s no wonder these guys get to know us so well!

Make good friends at work - you’ll enjoy your days much more and the hours will fly. Get your work mate in the gym with you by treating them to the Glacier tee by Rhone. It features an evaporative cooling Polartec fabric that uses your sweat to cool you down without weighing you down by using moisture wicking technology.
