Gifts for the Active Person on Your List!

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.


Wearable trackers will be a hot item this holiday season but many will be confined to the sock draw come February. To avoid this, I suggest a great holiday gift idea under $20 called KiQplan – a library of 12 week interactive coaching programs for any fitness level designed to make better use of almost ANY activity tracker, smartphone or watch.

KiQplan is a sophisticated personal trainer, nutritionist and lifestyle guru all rolled into one. Combining data from wearable technology, rich interactive media, healthy eating targets and expert advice, KiQplans give people the extra motivation, expertise and encouragement they need in a 12 week program, perfectly structured to achieve outcomes.


KiQplans are available at Target stores nationwide from November 9 priced $19.99 as well as at www.kiqplan.com. They work on iOS and Android smartphones, integrate with Fitbug as well as other leading third party brands such as Jawbone, Nike Fuel, Misfit, Withings and Fitbit and make the perfect gift for men or women of all ages.

There are four KiQplans to choose from. A “man-plan” weight loose program for guys called Beer Belly Blaster a fitness plan for women design to help shed up to 5lbs a week called Slim + Trim as well as pre natal regimen called Healthy Baby Bump and a post-natal plan called Goodbye Baby Belly.


And if you want a great activity tracker to go along with the KiQplans check out the Fitbug Orb which at $49.95 is the most affordable tracker on the market!

The Fitbug Orb is a button-sized activity tracker that tracks every step and aerobic step, together with distance and calories burned, whilst also monitoring your sleeping patterns. The discreet activity tracker can be worn in different ways to suit your style including on your wrist, attached to your belt, beneath your clothing, or even in your pocket or handbag.

Fitbug is your personal health and wellbeing coach, a smart little system designed to help you achieve your goals by encouraging small changes to everyday life.


Tell them your goals, and each week they'll send you personalized activity and nutrition targets carefully calculated to help you achieve your goals - be it weight loss, fitness, or just feeling your best.

You'll be able to log onto your very own pages via the website where you can track your activity, keep a food diary, monitor your progress, access healthy eating plans, recipes, challenges and much more.

They'll also send you weekly feedback and plenty of encouragement to keep you on track, giving you a nudge in the right direction whenever you need it.

Classic Wood Prints

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.


The countdown has begun. This season give the gift that gives back with Classic Wood Prints!

Take your favorite photos & artwork and have them etched in wood. Classic Wood Prints is a unique art form that is a unique blend of wood working and photography that captures a beautiful visual way of storytelling.


For every print sold - a donation will be made to Plant-It 2020, giving back to the environment and community by planting trees, providing direct humanitarian aid & and restoring forestry.

Turn that adventurous summer or favorite travel moments into a photographic, keep-sake one on wood that would be great for stocking stuffers and holiday decoration. The prints are designed to last for more than 20 years without fading which uses a UV ink, a fully cured ink that becomes "one" with the wood that brings out the beautiful wood grains.


It's great to do your part to keep an eye on the environment and giving wood a gift that creates a lasting reminder of your happy moments.

I got my favorite beach picture made into a wood picture to put in my new four season porch. I LOVE how it turned out!


It is a little lighter in color than the original picture but it makes for a really calming scene. The picture came out clear and colorful and I love that it is made on real wood! It makes such a unique gift this holiday season!

Buy It: 

You can purchase all wood prints starting at $28.95 for a 6 x 6 print from Classic Wood Prints.
