These Are the 9 Best Gifts from Lululemon, According to a Yoga Instructor, an Olympic Runner and a Self-Proclaimed Couch Potato

·4 min read

One of the first things we’d do if we ever won the lottery? Swap out half our wardrobe for Lululemon. And we have a feeling quite a few of our friends would do the same. But until then (fingers crossed), we’re making do by shopping the discounted ‘We Made Too Much’ section, and asking for a few pieces from the activewear brand for the holidays. Since the most wonderful time of the year is just around the corner, we've rounded up the items are actually worth asking for this year. So we turned to a yoga instructor, an Olympic runner and a self-proclaimed couch potato, all of whom wear Lulu on the reg, for their opinion on the brand’s must-have gifts.

1. Align Pant 28’’

“I thought these leggings were overhyped until I got a pair," says Caitlin C., a self-proclaimed couch potato. "But they’re truly as buttery-soft and comfortable as everyone says. I don’t really work out, so I love wearing these as loungewear. Most of the time I choose them over my favorite pair of joggers—they’re that comfy.". “I particularly love these because I can concentrate less on pulling my pants up. They stay put,” adds Chelsea Jackson Roberts, PhD, a Peloton yoga and meditation instructor.

2. High Neck Long Line Energy Bra, B-D Cup

Dr. Jackson Roberts is such a big fan of this bra that she owns it in every color the brand makes. “It offers [enough] support for me to flow in [just] a sports bra,” she explains. The high neck design is great for people with larger chests, or those who prefer full coverage.

3. All Yours Fleece Hoodie

Want to give the gift of coziness? You can’t go wrong with this cotton-blend fleece hoodie. “I don’t think I’ve ever experienced a softer sweatshirt,” says Olympic sprinter Jasmine Blocker. She tells us she’s been wearing hers practically nonstop during quarantine.

4. The Reversible Yoga Mat

Dr. Jackson Roberts says this yoga mat’s 26’’ width, grippy material and five-millimeter-thick cushioning make it perfect for both the serious yogi and the at-home workout enthusiast on your list. And the marbleized patterns? Gorgeous.

5. Scuba Oversized ½ Zip Hoodie

“OK, $118 for a hoodie is definitely a splurge in my book, but I wore my regular scuba hoodie all the time, so once I saw that Lululemon came out with this oversized version, I knew I needed it,” Caitlin says. “And let me tell you, it did not disappoint. My coworkers can attest that I wear it to at least two Zoom meetings a week.” We’re sold.

6. Free to Be Longline Bra, A/B Cup

Blocker calls this her all-time favorite bra to wear while training. “It’s super supportive and I literally get nonstop compliments,” she explains. Considering the pretty strap detailing in the back and the flattering longline fit, we’re not surprised. Just note that this bra offers light support, so you might want to pass on it if you’re shopping for someone who’s above a B cup.

7. Align Jogger 28’’

Given that she loves the Align leggings, we’re not surprised that Caitlin also recommends the jogger version of the popular style. “They’re made from the same super soft Nulu fabric, but have a looser fit and convenient pockets to throw my phone in,” she says.

8. Fast and Free Short 6’’

“I rarely train in anything else because these are so comfy and breathable,” Blocker says. She also loves the convenient side pockets to throw her keys and wallet in if she’s running errands right after practice. We know it’s not exactly bike short season—but TBH, we’ve still been rocking ours under a big cozy sweatshirt every now and then.

9. Everywhere Belt Bag 1L

“It seems kind of random, but I use this belt bag all the time, whether I’m taking my dog to the park or heading to the grocery store,” says Caitlin. “It goes with practically any athleisure outfit, which as you’ve probably guessed is what I wear 95 percent of the time.” The 1L size is just big enough to hold the essentials: your phone, wallet, keys and a bottle of hand sanitizer.
