If you have a friend or family member who loves working out, then you can't go wrong with an eco-friendly present oriented toward that interest. It's a safe bet that any clothing or accessory gear will see frequent, hard use -- and there's no better sign of a successful gift than that! As an avowed gym rat myself, here's a list of my ideal gym-related Christmas presents. (Maybe someone can surreptitiously forward this to my husband?)

Kooshoo is a Vancouver-based company that makes the only plastic-free hair ties that we know of in the world. They're 75 percent organic cotton and 25 percent natural rubber, which means they'll biodegrade if lost (but don't lose them because they're awesome). Kooshoo also makes great headbands, from wide organic cotton twist headbands to skinny double-elastic ones. (I own all of the above and love them.)
