Some people say that the best part of Christmas is not receiving gifts, but giving them. Those people are obviously wrong – and who are they trying to impress anyway? – but there is still plenty of joy to be taken in giving gifts.
However, in order to give gifts, you first have to choose and obtain those gifts, which is often not a joyous experience. All shopping malls and city centres in December are jam-packed with panicked present-seekers and are best avoided, and while the internet offers limitless choice, this can be as much a burden as a blessing when trying to pick the right gift.
Fortunately, Coach has got your back. We haven’t just picked out the very best gifts for runners, cyclists and gym-goers, we’ve also got the inside scoop on the best grooming gift sets and experiences to remember. And if you can’t find the right gift there, we’re still not done trying to help. Scroll your way down this page for an onslaught of fantastic gift ideas.

Exercise Bikes And Turbo Trainers
When the weather turns frosty many cyclists head indoors for their training sessions. To do that they need either a turbo trainer to park their bike on or an exercise bike. Or they can just ride around the house. If you live with someone who does the latter, then we know what will be sitting under the tree for them on 25th December.

An indoor rower is the perfect way to stay in shape at home, and they usually fold up nice and small so they can be stashed in a cupboard. We’ve rounded up the best rowers to buy from £96 to £949.
