23 Genius Wedding Gifts for Active Couples
We all know (and love) a couple who lives to work out. Somehow, they muster enough energy to hop on their Peloton early in the morning and train for a Tough Mudder after work. We might not get it, but we sure do admire it—and luckily, finding the perfect wedding gift for an active couple is easier than ever, thanks to the ever-growing fitness market.
If you're just starting to brainstorm gift ideas, the options can feel pretty endless. Start whittling them down by giving some thought to each of their passions, as well as what they already own. Are they CrossFit enthusiasts? Home gym devotees? Diehard yogis? The answers to these questions can make the difference between giving the newlyweds a good wedding gift and a great wedding gift.
As always, we recommend checking the couple's wedding registry well before the big day arrives and choosing from their list of wants and must-haves if you can. But if everything's already been purchased, or you'd rather give a unique wedding gift that reflects their shared interests, say no more—we've got you covered.
