Wedding season is upon us! And whether you're browsing another couple's registry or getting ready to walk down the aisle yourself, let's face it—nobody really needs another toaster. Instead, any active couple will be psyched to receive one of these unique gifts.
Workout-friendly wedding rings
When you wear your wedding band to the gym, you run the risk of losing it, scratching it, or—worst of all—getting it caught on something and severely injuring yourself (we do not recommend Googling exactly what can happen). If you'd rather not go ringless, there's a smart alternative: the QALO Silicone Ring, available in sizes for men ($20; amazon.com) and women ($16; amazon.com). These medical-grade silicone rings are safe to wear while working out, and if you lose yours, it's easy to replace. Besides the gym, these rings are great for traveling or swimming—no need to fret about it slipping off.
Tongue-in-cheek matching activewear
A splurge-worthy blender
A great gift is often something that you really want, but you don't want to spend the money on. A perfect example is the mother of all blenders: the professional kitchen-grade Vitamix Professional Series 750 Blender ($750; amazon.com). What fitness-loving couple wouldn't love a blender that can whip up nutrient-packed smoothies and juices in seconds? The Vitamix is so powerful that it can also blend homemade peanut butter and hot soups.
If $750 is too steep for you (we totally get it), there's also the Vitamix 5200 Series Blender ($549; amazon.com), which boasts many of the same features as the professional-grade model, at a price that may be more appropriate for home chefs. You can also opt for a certified refurbished model ($359; amazon.com).
A camera to capture every adventure
With the waterproof, durable GoPro HERO 4 Session ($199; amazon.com), newlyweds can easily capture every SCUBA dive, snowboard run, or rock-climbing ascent they take on their honeymoon and beyond. Get inspired by watching the video below.
A date-night DIY kit
DIY kits let you try something new together, and there's no shortage of options for couples who live the fit life. Kombucha is super-popular among yogis, and this Flavored Kombucha Brooklyn Kit ($70; williams-sonoma.com) gives you everything you need to brew three 1-gallon batches of this fermented tea drink.
These days, every marathon, bike race, and adventure event has at least one craft beer tent serving up fancy brews. And homebrewing is growing in popularity. The Brooklyn Brew Shop Beer Making Kit ($40; amazon.com) gives budding brewers all the equipment they need to get started, plus a mix of grains, hops, and yeast to make their first batch.
Smart solutions to organize their gear
Whether the soon-to-be-newlyweds are already living together or are waiting until after the big day to cohabitate, getting married means having two of every bike, snowboard, sleeping bag, or whatever other activities the couple likes to do together. Get organized with smart storage, like the Delta Michelangelo Bike Rack ($80; amazon.com), which stacks two bikes against the wall, freeing up floor space in your garage or gear closet.
Snow lovers will be grateful for the Rough Rack Ski and Snowboard rack ($70; amazon.com), which holds up to eight pairs of skis—including poles—or eight snowboards.
For those who do a little of everything, Target's Household Essentials Triple Sports Storage Bin ($50; target.com) will help conceal clutter.
At Honeyfund.com, couples can register to receive activities for their honeymoons, such as surfing lessons, hang gliding sessions, guided hikes, and much more. If you aren't sure where the couple plans to vacation, pick something in their hometown (think rock climbing, trampoline park, or tennis lessons).
