When it comes to clothing that stands up to nasty, chilly weather, nobody does it better and this jacket is no exception. Made of moisture-wicking, breathable fabric, it's also nice and warm with a fleece lining. It's also water-resistant and the sleeves are extra long and come with nifty thumb holes to keep the hands warm. This one will last a good, long time.
The Elements Pullover is like the cute little brother of the Elements Jacket I highlighted above. Like the jacket, it's water-resistant and it's made of Nike's famous Dri-FIT fabric to wick sweat away and keep you dry on your outdoor runs. What makes it different is that it's lighter than the jacket and can be worn as a base layer or on its own when the weather is chilly. It zips up to the chin, making it easy to regulate your temperature - unzip it when you get too hot, zip it back up when you get chilly. This one also has thumb holes at cuffs for hand warmth and coverage
Whenever it snows, I try to make my husband shovel all the snow off our driveway. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, but it helps that he has a pair of these windstopper gloves to deal with the 10-below temperatures. They really are the best gloves we've found for exercising or working out in very cold weather. They're filled with warm fleece and the elastic wrist band keeps out the cold. If the man in your life needs to update his cold weather wardrobe, this is a great stocking stuffer.
This advanced, some would say killer, workout series certainly isn't for every guy. However, if your guy is really into exercise, he might like these very advanced workouts. The series includes 12 different workout DVDs with everything from strength training and plyometrics to yoga and stretching. This is also a good choice for cold weather months when outdoor workouts may not always be possible.
Men are usually easy to buy for - my husband would be perfectly happy with a six-pack and a free day to watch football. But, if the man in your life is harder to please, give him something unexpected - an adventure. This pass gives him the adventure of your choice including bicycling, climbing or even bungee jumping trips. The adventures offered are located all around the country and you'll want to research to find the right fit for you (and you're in charge of all the travel arrangements). The regular gift set costs $89 for the basic version which comes with the adventure pass and a guidebook, while the deluxe set ($129) includes that plus a camera and notebook. You can also get two passes if you're adventurous too.
I haven't tried this type of heart rate monitor yet, but it's gotten excellent reviews and is perfect for the gadget-head in your family. This heart rate monitor/GPS device provides continuous information about heart rate, speed, pace, distance and calories burned. The GPS tells you exactly how fast you're going and where you are (which is great if he loves going out on the trails or has a bad sense of direction) and he can even download workout information with the included software. This is a great idea for athletes, marathoners or runners who love tracking their progress. The drawbacks may be the price (about $200-$300) and the big, boxy wrist unit that may be a little awkward.
Some people think that giving someone a gift card is somehow impersonal, but what is more personal than the opportunity to buy tons of great music for your workouts? An iTunes gift card is perfect for the music-lover in your life. He can buy music he loves and make new playlists for his workouts, which will motivate him to exercise more.
