Can you believe that the holidays are here already? Yikes, us neither!
Genesis Fitness together with Lorna Jane believe that Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year and we want to help take the stress out of your gift shopping.
With so much to choose from and so little time to be browsing the shops, we have done the leg work for you and curated a gift guide/wish list (yep, we’ve got your back too!) sure to please all of the active women in your life.
Here are the Top 10 Lorna Jane essentials to fill your loved ones Christmas stockings this year:
The outfit essentials
1: Black Tights
A classic is a classic for a reason…
It’s a pretty obvious start to the list, but it’s a good reminder that there is no such thing as ‘too many pairs’ of black LJ tights.
Tights are the new jeans. Ridiculously versatile, black tights can be worn anywhere from a gym session or morning walk to brunch and shopping.
They can be styled with some flashy flats or funky boots with a flowy top and statement earrings to head out with friends.
Looking for more support? The Step Up Core 7/8 Tight offers our unique Active Core Stability panelling as well as stylish mesh panels, for movement and additional breathability. Added bonus – check out those external side pockets for stashing your phone and keys when you’re on the go.
2: Go-to Sports Bra
Be their number 1 supporter!
A comfortable, high performance sports bra is an essential for all active women. A quality sports bra can make or break a workout. If you’re uncomfortable or feeling unsupported, how can you possibly focus on what’s important?
With an alarming number of women wearing the wrong sized bra, LJ’s team are trained to find the perfect fit and style for everyone.
Our top picks…
The Marathon Sports Bra offers maximum support as well as being incredibly comfortable and stylish. With adjustable straps to ensure the perfect fit and a layered front to offer storage for long runs (keys, gels, key cards…), this high impact bra has all bases covered.
The Harness Sports Bra has a cross strap design to keep you cool and allow ease of movement while supporting you through your workout. Wide straps offer additional comfort and the LJ Excel fabric is moisture wicking, quick dry and breathable… as well as looking great under any strappy or backless tank – this one ticks all the boxes!
A classic tank is always a welcome gift under the tree.
All you need is love and whoever you’re buying for will definitely fall in love with this tank.
Light, breathable and the perfect lifestyle and travel companion, the Love Tank is ideal for all active occasions as it works with shorts, tights and lifestyle pants equally well.
4: Surprise them with a statement piece…
When shopping for ourselves we tend to buy ‘functional’ pieces, saving statement items for an indulgence. Be the friend to treat them to that key piece!
Don’t be afraid to add a little fun! Play with patterns and colours to add some pop and pizazz to outfits.
A colourful sports bra is a great place to start, try the Siren Sports Bra. Long line and a beautiful bright and strappy design, it looks great under block colours so will go well with black, white or grey.
Patterned tights add a bit more fun and individuality to your outfit. Try these stunning Thrive Core 7/8 Tights to brighten up any day!
5: For the planner in
your life ...

If you don’t have a plan, how will you get a result? Motivational, beautifully designed and full of inspo and recipes, the 2018 Active Living Diary is the perfect way to kick off your best year yet!
6: For the book worm …

Combining insider stories, inspiration, advice on the importance of loving YOU as well as workouts and recipes, Love You has something for everyone. Love You is THE feel good present of the season and the gift that will keep on giving.
7: Always ready for a workout …
Perfect for the friend who goes straight to the gym to/from work or is the classic ‘pack horse’, always carrying an arm full of bags … we all know one!
The Luxe Bucket Backpack is a multifunctional bag that is great for everyday use. Use as a day bag, travel carry-on or gym bag. It can be worn over the shoulder as a bucket bag, or with the back straps to carry as a backpack.
8: Secret Santa – Accessories!
