Holiday Gift Guide for the Lady CrossFitter

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Have no idea what to buy the special lady CrossFitter in your life? Well, look no further! Here are some gift ideas to make her (or him) smile on Christmas morning. (A number of these gifts are great for male CrossFit athletes too!) These suggestions are a mix of products that I already own and love and things that I would like to see under the Christmas tree!

WOD Talk Subscription

WOD Talk is a magazine for CrossFitters. Each issue provides all kinds of information from experts in the fields of fitness, nutrition, and sports psychology as well as motivational success stories. It’s an awesome magazine and just about any CrossFit athlete would love to have a subscription to it.


CrossFit Track Jacket

I love this hoodie! It looks so comfy and cozy with an oversize hood and thumb holes on the sleeves. It’d be perfect for warming up or hanging out post-WOD.


Practical Paleo: A Customized Approach to Health and a Whole-Foods Lifestyle

I’m just a tad obsessed with this book and think everyone should own a copy. Even people who don’t do CrossFit and just want to eat better will like it. Here’s my review!


Stronger Than Yesterday Tank from Life AsRx

Life AsRx is “the only line of apparel designed exclusively for CrossFitters” and they make some really cute gear! I actually own the tank below in blue and absolutely love it. “Stronger than yesterday” is my favorite CrossFit saying and it fits really well.


Blender Bottle with Wire Ball

Need to refuel post-WOD? The Blender Bottle with wire ball is a quick, easy, and portable way to mix up a protein shake.

CrossFit No Slip Headband

A headband is a must-have in CrossFit! This one has a gel strip inside that helps it stay put, so you’re not messing around with your hair during a WOD. Stocking stuffer?

CrossFit Journal

This journal helps you keep track of your fitness stats and goals. It’s pretty much a necessity for CrossFitters!


Again Faster Revolution Rope

The Again Faster Revolution Rope is the best jump rope. I learned how to do double-unders with it, so it has a special place in my heart. It’s light-weight and moves smoothly, which helps you get faster double-unders more often.

What do YOU want for Christmas?



  1. I’m not a crossfitter, but it’s a small world! The woman who runs journalMENU with her husband worked with my husband in their PhD programs for the last couple years. It’s a great local company (and they are an adorable family) and I’m so glad to see you promoting them!

  2. I am not a Crossfitter, but I’ve heard great things about that Paleo cookbook. I’ve been into Insanity and lately because working out at home fits a lot better with my schedule right now. I really want the Ultimate Body Press Dip Station.

  3. Do you know if WODTalk magazine or TheBox Magazine is better? I’m looking to get one for my husband and wasn’t sure. He has mentioned TheBox before, but you just mentioned WODTalk, so now I’m not sure 🙂

  4. I love Blender Bottles! I have to drink 3-4 protein shakes a day (I had a vertical sleeve gastrectomy) & couldn’t live without them 😉

    My Christmas list includes a replacement for my Sonicare toothbrush & a new case for my iPod 🙂

  5. Fitness-related, a bosu ball for my at-home workouts would be great or the Reebok jacket you’ve been sporting in lots of posts. But I’ve got a pretty low-maintenance list this year–a new set of fleece sheets and a roasting pan.

  6. I don’t know much about Paleo eating but I want to check out that book. Is Paleo similar to Clean Eating? I’ve been reading stuff from Tosca Reno about elimination processed foods and other stuff from your diet.

    1. @Erika: They have similar principals. The Paleo diet requires that you eat like cavemen, so whole, natural foods found in the Paleoletic age: meat, seafood, vegetables, fruit, and nuts, BUT grains, beans, dairy, and sugar are not allowed.

  7. Thank you SO much for this list! A couple of days ago I ordered “Practical Paleo” from Amazon for my mom, but I couldn’t think of what else to get her. I think I’m going to order her the no-slip headband and maybe one of the journals. She’s looking to kick my butt in some WODs when I go home over Christmas, haha.
