Happy Friday, friends! Paul is joining me today to share some active gift ideas for both men and women to help you cross a few more people off your holiday shopping list.
Ever since I discovered their buttery soft Performance Jogger during lockdown last year, I’ve been gradually adding more Vuori to my athleisure wardrobe, and it seems like every piece is better than the last.
If this brand is new to you, Vuori makes premium performance apparel for men and women that is built for movement and style. They have the softest tees and polos for guys, and their pants are made with movement in mind, but they look nice enough to wear for work or leisure in casual environments. The Ripstop Climber Pant is a perfect example.
Paul loves to go hiking on the weekends, and these pants are made of a durable ripstop fabric with two-way stretch and a gusset for a wide range of motion. They also have a drawstring waist and an external zipper pocket where he can stow a phone or other essentials.
The modern, slimmer fit is both stylish and practical, and they come in 10 great neutrals. These pants have have a 33″ inseam, and it says on the website that they’re intended to be worn cuffed. If I’d realized that, we would have tried it because they’re a little long on Paul. He usually wears a 31″ or 32″ inseam.
Paul is also wearing the Encinitas Crew, a mid-weight fleece pullover made with organic French terry cotton. He better watch out, this sweatshirt is so soft, it might find its way onto my side of the closet at some point.
It also comes in navy and black, and I would say it’s true to size. I ordered Paul the large, which is his normal size, mainly for the length. Otherwise, a medium would probably be a better fit for his slim build.
My friend and workout partner has this Halo Essential Hoodie in a darker grey, and every time she wears it, I swear I’m going to get one for myself, so I finally did. It’s the same buttery soft DreamKnit ™ fabric as Vuori’s cult-favorite Performance Jogger, and it feels absolutely divine.
The Halo Essential Hoodie comes in a bunch of colors, and it runs true to size with a cropped fit; I have it in the small, for reference.
I also added their Lux Rib Studio Legging to my Vuori collection. These are buttery soft and on the thinner side, and I especially like the extra high waist. It isn’t constricting at all, but it stays put when I move around.
These leggings are incredibly lightweight, perfect for studio and gym workouts or just being comfy at home. In fact, I wore them this morning for a strength training workout.
They also have this cool contrasting waistband, which is a nice detail if you’re comfortable wearing cropped tops, like the Mudra Fitted Tee that I’m wearing underneath. I ordered the medium in these, but the way they wrinkle at the knees makes me think I could have gone down to the small.
From their matching sets to their high quality performance workout apparel, finding Vuori under the tree is sure to bring a smile to someone’s face on Christmas Day.
In fact, Vuori’s investment in happiness is part of their product guarantee. It’s very simple: if you don’t love the product, send it back. Returns are always free, and ground shipping via USPS is also free on orders over $75, after discounts and before taxes.
Here are some of our other Vuori favorites that would make great holiday gifts or treats for yourself.
His and Hers Active Gift Ideas from Vuori
The Womens Alpine Sherpa Jacket is my go-to for cold weather walks and going to and from the gym. It’s made of recycled performance sherpa fleece with an anti-pilling finish, and it has a zip-up design with a nice high collar to keep out the elements.
The Performance Jogger is my favorite all-around jogger. They’re my go-to for casual athleisure looks or any activity where I need freedom of movement. FIT TIP: Size up for a more relaxed fit. I take these in a medium.
The Weekend Jogger is another great option. These are incredibly lightweight and equipped for travel or adventure. These are also a medium.
Activewear that can cross over into casual work wear is key to eliminating excuses, which is why Paul loves the Aim Pant and Strato Tech Polo. He can take a break in the middle of the day to join me on a walk and get right back to work, or meet a friend at the trail after church without having to bring a change of clothes or going home first to change.
The Strato Tech Tee is ridiculously soft, quick drying, and moisture-wicking with UPF 30+ for long days in the sun. And the Ponto Shorts are lightweight, soft, and stretchy with a brushed elastic waistband for added comfort.
I also have and highly recommend the Halo Performance Jacket, which is made of the same DreamKnit ™ fabric as the Performance Jogger and my Halo Essential Hoodie. I have it in black, so it makes a chic matching set with the Performance Jogger, and I also like to wear it with their black camo print leggings and a tank to and from the gym.
