Are you ready to have a merry and bright delightful season? We are!
Do you believe in Santa Claus? Christmas trees? Stockings hung by the chimney with care? We do! To help you on your search for gifts we will tell you about all the great holiday gift ideas that are available to you right here at Bodybuilding.com and with some of our affiliates and friends.
There are gym bags, workout clothing, t-shirts, posters, training videos, home gym equipment, and even special goodies like protein bars to stuff in those stockings... hung by the chimney with care.
I like stocking stuffers. They are often overlooked and last minute items. No one really considers them until the big night rolls around and the panic sets in -- frantic hands grab some candy... snag a bar of fancy soap and "bingo" the stocking is stuffed.
Now, we're not trying to say there is anything wrong with this tried- and-true method of stocking stuffing, but we do think that, with a little more thought and a few inexpensive mini-gifts can forge their happy way into those velvet stockings.
Need some help with your posing technique? Here are the videos that will help prepare you for your competition. Any of these videos are great for starters:
Not good enough to just get one? Then how about a set? All Three Perfect Videos!
You get the Perfect Posing, Perfect Individual Routine, and Perfect Contest Diets videos! After watching these videos, they will help you in bettering your competition on stage. Get all 3 VHS videos or DVDs and 2 CDs or cassettes to help you be totally prepared to win your contest!

Do they need a new lifting belt? You know you hate that old stinky piece of leather they keep tucked away in their gym bag. Replace that old belt with a new weight belt. Lifting belts are always a great gift. One new belt a year is a nice way of staying fresh in the gym.
You can get a 4" or 6" Leather Belt (the economy type) or how about a long lasting tuff belt like The Power Up 4" Power Belt. These are designed for heavy lifting. They are made of suede and has a double pronged buckle.
If your loved one or friend is doing heavy deadlifts, squats etc., a good strong weight lifting belt is essential for reducing injury. These belts are built durable and are for only $19.95, Wow! Now that's a GREAT deal.
GREAT Stocking Stuffers are lifting straps. Everyone can use lifting wrist straps. They are a very important tool for any lifter. Important, especially if you lift heavy as in, Bodybuilding, Powerlifting or Strongman competitions etc.
Gifts For A Personal Trainer
Is your loved one a personal trainer? Do they work promoting companies or model? Are they a competitive bodybuilder or maybe they do strength contests or powerlifitng. Then how about surprising them with their own Web Site? Get a Web site NOW so it will be ready for you by Christmas.
What about a new set of business cards. Get some New Business Cards. If they don't have business cards then how about some picture business cards? Picture business cards are like small billboards making them the best way for your bodybuilder to promote and market themselves.
Do they get a lot of fan mail? How about personalized stationary? A big box of their very own stationary to send their reply letters they get from all those fans. A first class stationary idea is to take a picture, that same picture you had placed on the business card and have it blurred in the background of the paper. So, when you look at the paper you can see their picture. Now that's classy.
