Lagatta The Leggings

Lagatta was established after former athlete, Stephanie Reynders, and her mum, Dimitra, noticed a gap in the market for activewear for women over the age of 40.

We love Lagatta’s butter-soft ‘ultra high waist, ultra comfortable, ultra flattering’ leggings, which come in four different colours. Our preference? Glamorous grey with chic white piping.

The stylish brand also holds sustainability at its core. Yarns for the collection are made from recycled from abandoned fishing nets in the ocean.

Yogi Bare Teddy Lightweight Travel Yoga Mat in Cosmic

With travel opening up again, this lightweight Teddy mat is the ideal way to help yogis stick to their routines, wherever they might be heading.

We love the cosmic starry colourway made with non-toxic water-based inks and dyes. Weighing just 1.5kg means this mat is super lightweight. You can fold into a small square – around the same size as a jumper – when packing.

Its velvet microfibre surface becomes grippy under sweat and moisture, while the natural sustainable rubber helps grip it to the floor.

Yogis can also pop the Yogi Bare’s exercise mats into the washing machine post-practice. It’s a great option if your giftee loves a hot yoga session or two.

Designed to be highly versatile, the Condor 2 trainer is the go-to shoe for long runs, easy runs, and recovery sessions. It combines maximum comfort and a very secured feel, meaning it’s a super reliable partner.

Coming in a whole host of different colour palettes, the Wellbeing team loves this understated neutral and pink option with a neon flash. At £135 a pop, it’s not the cheapest gift option on our guide, but we think they’re worth it.
