Top 10 Gifts for Pilates Lovers in 2020

December 11, 2020

The weather has finally cooled down, and holiday lights shine brightly across rooftops and window displays throughout thousands of cities, but the holiday season feels slightly different this year. Family gatherings have shifted to online meetings, workouts have moved from studios to living rooms, and most of our time is now spent at home. These changes create ample opportunity to give unique gifts that center around home-based or online activities, as well as health and wellness.


We’ve done all kinds of research on the best 2020 gifts for Pilates lovers, and we’ve narrowed the list down to our Top 10 favorites. Drop a subtle hint to your loved ones by sharing this link with them, or feel free to jump on some of these great gifts for yourself or other Pilates lovers in your life! 

10. Antibacterial Mat/Apparatus Spray

Don’t be fooled by their name, “yoga mat detox” yoga mat cleaners by Asutra work great on Pilates mats, props, and apparatus, too! These non-toxic tea tree oil-based sprays are natural antibacterials. Choose from six invigorating scents like soothing sweet rose, peaceful lavender, or calming citrus, or grab an unscented spray. Gift packs available!


9. Grip Socks

We are huge fans of Tucketts grip socks! Not only do they have tons of cute lengths, cuts, and color choices, they use sustainable packaging and ethical manufacturing practices. Tucketts grip socks are available for both men and women, with gift packs and bundles available. Stay warm, supported, and covered with grip socks!


8. Pilates-themed Stationary

Known for their whimsical Pilates-themed apparel, Pilates Nerd also has great accessories to incorporate into your Pilates-loving lifestyle. Let your online Pilates family know how much you appreciate them with these “Virtual Star” postcards. Or grab a “Pilates in the House” lined notepad to keep track of lists and notes.



7. Pilates-themed Face Mask

We love these beautiful, Pilates-themed face masks from Pilates Goddess Clothing. Choose from 12 different designs in either traditional face mask form, or versatile face mask/headband style. We also love the “Pilates Moves Me” face mask from Pilates Nerd.


6. BASI Pilates Merchandise

For the BASI Pilates fan, head to BASI’s online shop to browse BASI Pilates brand apparel, water bottles, workout DVDs, eBooks, and physical books. You won’t find BASI merchandise anywhere else and select items are currently on sale, so grab them before they’re gone! International shipping available.

5. Reformer Mat

The perfect companion to your Pilates reformer, the Reformer Mat is a cute and hygienic way to add some style to your practice! We couldn’t decide on our favorite out of the 18 unique designs because we loved them all so much! Each Reformer Mat is cut to lay down perfectly on the carriage, including the headrest, and stay put. 


4. Caged Lion: Joseph Pilates and His Legacy by John Howard Steel

Cozy up at home with this brand new book about Joseph Pilates by John Howard Steel.
