’Tis the season to stress about buying presents! But we’ve got you covered with another selection of gifts for active people
Whether they wake at dawn for a run before work, or skip the workout and wear athleisure to the office, everyone has at least one sporty person in their lives, and we know shopping for them can be difficult.
Don’t stress, we’ve got you covered! We’re back with our second instalment of the Glorious Gift Guide.
A bike can mean a lot of things to a person. It’s transport, a tool, a toy, and when it comes to tokyobike, an object d’art. Light-weight Chromoly steel frame on 26″ wheels with a classic aesthetic, this bike is perfect for daily life in the city, either as a first bike or for seasoned riders after a comfortable alternative to a road bike. Designed in Tokyo, the lightweight Single Speed bikes exude the brand’s Japanese roots with clean lines, minimalistic style and a classic monochrome range. Your commute will never be the same again! Exclusively for Glorious readers in the UK and US, you can now snap up 10% off on their gorgeous Single Speed models, Mono and Mono II, saving you over £50! Simply use code GLORIOUS10 at checkout.

An absolute must for any kit bag! This cult favourite facial spray acts like a vitamin shot, bringing instant radiance to the complexion. Made of 100% natural-origin ingredients and bursting with powerful plant extracts of grape, rosemary, orange blossom, rose, myrrh and organic balm mint. It’s a quick way to refresh your skin post workout or at the 4pm lull in the work day. The aromatic fragrance is both uplifting and calming for the mind and the senses. Suitable for all skin types, this is perfect for toning, prepping skin for makeup, cooling the face down, or for waking up your complexion whenever you’re in need of perking up!
This is Maria Svarbova’s second book due to popular demand from her largest and continuing series Swimming Pools. Sparked by a hunt for interesting locations in her native Slovakia, Maria’s fascination with the space of public swimming pools contributed to developing her visual style. Sterile, geometric beauty of old pools, usually built in the Socialist era, set the tone for these photographs. There is almost a theatrical quality to the highly controlled sceneries that Maria captures. This rare limited-edition, signed hard cover book is a must for any art lovers’ coffee table!

Hair removal should be optional. Great hair removal shouldn’t. Estrid are more than just a razor company. They chose to do things differently, like making sure all their products are vegan and cruelty-free, and have designed their stainless steel razor to last a lifetime. They’re on a mission to change gender-based discriminatory pricing, because you should never pay more for being you. The service is subscription based – begin with the starter kit for £7.95, then Estrid will send you four new super-sharp razor blades for £9.95 as often as you’d like (choose from monthly to every four months.) Skip a shipment, change frequency or pause your subscription at any time.
Sports bras are a very complex piece of equipment and an essential part of our workout gear. With so many fashion-based companies releasing (non science-based) sportswear, it’s always been difficult to navigate the world of sports bras, until we found Maaree! We love how comfortable, stylish and versatile all their products are, but particularly their award-winning Solidarity High Impact Sports Bra. The bra is designed with impact in mind! Perfect for anyone who loves exercise like HIIT, running and combat. The adjustable Overband, convertible shoulder straps and a design using non-elastic and elastic panelling, make for the perfect combination of comfort and performance. Sizes range from 30C to 38G.
The combination of cold weather and hot dry air can wreak havoc on lips in winter. Keep chapped lips at bay with Sports HAI’s award-winning Hydrating Lip Complex.
