As you likely know, both of my boys play competitive hockey during autumn and winter, and enjoy soccer and swimming during spring and summer. Our school year is a hectic one; with both boys playing hockey, we are at the rinks at least six days a week, often overlapping as well.

Both my husband and I work out at our local gym, and enjoy lifting weights. We enjoy doing outdoor activities together as a family. I’d say our family is pretty active!

This year, we’re doing a lot of holiday gift shopping at Sport Chek where you can find sports gifts for the gamilyMy kids outgrow their hockey equipment every other year, and need hockey skates and sticks every season. It can get expensive!

Here are some great gifts ideas for the sports and fitness lovers in your family.  #GiveABetterGift this year, one that will promote healthy and active living!

I still have the original Fitbit in black but it’s time to upgrade. I love how the new Fitbit Flex 2 Fitness Tracker in Lavender looks like a bracelet!

  1. Those GoPro’s look so neat. I would love to see what they product when kids are wearing one in a playground.

  2. My son is on a hockey league so I’m always looking for sports items for him. I am pretty sure he always buys Bauer skates.

  3. My older son would love the hockey skates, and the GoPro looks cool! These are brilliant gift idea.
