Spoil the weightlifters in your life this Christmas with the gifts they’ll love. Get them back in the gym with the ultimate gift guide with everything they need and more to smash their gym goals.  

We’ve got the top gifts for weightlifters this year all here, in one place, so you can get your stocking-fillers for all the weightlifters, bodybuilders and fitness fanatics you know.


Christmas Essentials  

1. Gingerbread Layered Bar

It wouldn't be the ultimate gift guide without a layered bar. This classic Christmas flavour has now been added to a layered bar and it’s soon to be your favourite flavour.

It also makes the perfect stocking filler – it's bound to put a smile on anyone's face this Christmas.


2. Resistance Bands

Resistance bands have so many uses for weightlifters. They’re perfect for activating muscles with some bodyweight exercises at the beginning of your session, as well as helping improve flexibility, which is key to preventing injury.  

Resistance bands are also ideal for adding an extra level of resistance to weighted exercises in the gym, as well as helping the gym-bunny get a sweat on with home workouts.  


3. Hot and Cold Gel Pack

Our hot and cold gel pack is reusable, and helps to alleviate muscular and joint pain from exercise. 

Heat it in the microwave or freeze in the freezer to treat a sports injury at any stage and provide pain relief. Your weightlifting friends could always do with one of these so that they're ready to treat any muscle or joint pain quickly. 


4. Yoga Mat

Yoga is a brilliant companion to weight training, as perfecting some poses requires a lot of strength and coordination.  

But a good Yoga mat isn't just for Yogis. For bodybuilders, regular stretching is key to flexibility and preventing injury, and a good Yoga mat is essential for stretching.  


5. Lifting Gloves

Lifting gloves are always in a weightlifter's gym bag and are definitely an essential. So make sure your gym buddy is stocked with a new pair of lifting gloves this Christmas, ready to lift heavy in 2022. 

With a comfortable fit giving added wrist support, lifts won't be limited by any loss of grip with these gloves. Any weightlifters you know would love a brand new pair of lifting gloves to show off in the gym after Christmas, these are the ones.


Christmas Fitness Gifts Ideal for a Home Gym  

The ultimate gift guide has even got your home gym covered.

For all the weightlifters and bodybuilders who invested in a home gym, these gifts will top off their kit. See below for the perfect gifts for their home gym. 


6. Liquid Chalk

Our Liquid Chalk prevents sweating from hands and feet, and allows your weightlifting friends to lift heavy, without having to worry about the bar slipping off, or losing their grip on their feet. Ensure your bodybuilding friends are able to get more reps in their sets by comfortably being able to grip for longer.

Because our lifting chalk is liquid, it's easy to transport as well as being an essential addition to a home gym.


7. Wrist Wraps

Our super supportive wrist wraps offer enhanced comfort and support, ensuring reduced risk of injury and sprains. These are key for any weightlifters or bodybuilders, allowing them to lift heavy, safely and securely. They'll definitely thank you for a new set of these.  


8. Large Towel

Made with super-soft cotton and a herringbone loop to hang anywhere, a good gym towel is essential for a home gym, unless you fancy ruining some of your regular towels. 

Give your weightlifter mates this great stocking filler and add to their home gym, or get them properly equipped to head back to the gym. 


9. Leather Dipping Belt

Some of us might struggle with one pull-up, but for your bodybuilding friends, one bodyweight pull-up or dip is far too easy.  

Our leather dipping belt can hold up to 100kg to add resistance to their pull-ups and dips whilst supporting the lower back. Progress never stops with this fitness accessory.  


10. Metal Water Bottle

Perfect for keeping drinks ice cold in a sweaty gym. Our Double Walled Bottle keeps post-workout BCAAs refreshing and cold. It's also completely spill proof. A brilliant stocking filler this year. 


Gym Gear for Christmas Gifting  

Whether you’re getting ready to tackle a home workout, venturing into the gym, or simply having a rest day in front of the TV, MP Clothing has got you covered, head to toe. So, it would be rude not to include any in the ultimate gift guide.

Our clothing is always made with the athlete in mind, tailored for them to get the most out of their workout, every time.


11. Velocity long sleeve tops

As the days get darker and the cold really starts to hit, having gym kits suited to the cold weather is key. Especially when gyms have been closed and we’re doing a lot more outdoor workouts, or garage gym sessions. Velocity collection is made with sweat wicking technology and fabrics that help regulate body temperature.  


12. Training Gear

The Training Collection is ideal for all weightlifters out there. Paying homage to the golden era of body building, the Training Collection shows off classic bodybuilding gear silhouettes, as well as ensuring comfortability for bulking up (or smashing a Christmas Dinner), and mobility so that all their lifts can be completed with perfect form.  


13. Men’s Performance Gloves

Our Performance Lifting Gloves are comfortable and supportive to enable all of your weightlifting mates to lift heavy, confidently. Perfect for at home training or in the gym, these are the perfect addition to any bodybuilder’s gym kit.  


14. A/Wear T-Shirts& Joggers

Our A/Wear Collection is perfect for a comfy and cosy Christmas Day.  

A/Wear has been made with entirely renewable material and 100% cotton for maximum comfort. Simplistic and stylish, and with comfort in mind, these are ideal for every bodybuilder’s rest days, to build muscle in style.  


The Best Items for Christmas Gifting

15. Gym Holdall

No ultimate gift guide would be complete without a holdall. Kit is key for every weight lifter, they've got it in their car, or by the door ready to squeeze in a session on the way home from work, so treat them to a bag that can hold it all — and all their snacks too. There’s a large pocket for shoes, inside pocket for valuables, water resistant base to keep everything dry and multiple options for straps.  


16. Training Leggings

The Training Leggings are made to withstand your toughest, heaviest workouts. Lift heavy, confidently in these leggings, with a ribbed material and seamless design, not only are they insanely durable, they're comfortable too. 


17. Shaker & Myvegan Shaker  

A brand-new shaker is like a brand-new toy for a bodybuilder.  

Whether you’re vegan or a non-vegan, a shiny new shaker is always going to go down a treat in a weightlifter’s stocking. Replace their old shaker that's screaming out to be swapped out with a brand new one.


18. Fruit Infuser Bottle

Our Fruit Infuser Bottle is perfect for grabbing in the gym. Holding 700ml, and with a screw top, this is the ideal water bottle for your weightlifting pals to carry on the go.

A little easier to carry around than our Gallon Hydrator, the Fruit Infuser Bottle might be more suited to weightlifters you know who don't have a desk job, and are always on the move. Make sure they've got water wherever they are. And with the added benefit of being able to infuse your water, your hydration levels will be through the roof.


Protein Gifting Essentials this Christmas  

A high protein diet is essential to build muscle, recover properly, and continue to make gains. We’ve got all of the best supplements in our ultimate gift guide.


19. Whey & Vegan Blend

Our Whey Isolate and Vegan Blend proteins are made of high-quality protein, with essential amino acids for muscle building.   

Both of these protein powders blend into a smooth and creamy shake, perfect for mixing into porridge, smoothies, or just on its own. Definitely an essential for any weightlifter with 23g of protein per serving in Whey Isolate, as well as 22g per serving in the Vegan Blend.  


20. Clear Whey & Clear Vegan

Our Clear Proteins are for any bodybuilders who prefer a fruitier protein fix than a creamy one.  

With 22g of protein per serving in Clear Whey, and 10g in Clear Vegan both offer a refreshing protein hit, as well as 4 essential BCAAs. We recommend gifting classic Peach Tea or Tropical Dragon Fruit this year.  


21. THE Whey

THE Whey is perfect for anyone looking for huge gains. With 25g of protein, less than 2g of carbs and 1g of fat per serving, those all-important bodybuilding macros will be on point. High protein, low carb, low sugar are all music to the ears of bodybuilders wanting to get in that all-important cut.

We recommend Cookies ‘n’ Cream or Chocolate Caramel for some festive decadence this year.  


22. Weight Gainer Blend

Every weightlifter knows how important a bulk is, and with our Weight Gainer Blend, its never been so easy or tasty to put on mass.  

The Gainer Blend gives a huge 31g of protein, 50g of carbs and 388kcal per serving, so any weightlifter will have no problem gaining good quality muscle mass with this supplement on hand.  


23. THE Gainer

If you know someone looking for even more mass, THE Gainer could be what they need.  

Boasting 55g of protein, 110g of carbs, and 788kcal, THE Gainer is the ideal gift for serious bodybuilders looking to make some serious gains this Christmas. If Christmas Dinner wasn’t enough, THE Gainer surely will be.  


24. BCAA & EAA

BCAAs and EAAs both hugely support muscle growth. They'll give your weightlifter all the amino acids necessary to make great gains, and they’ll definitely be grateful for you stocking them up.  

We’ve got fantastic flavours to choose from too, try our Raspberry Lemonade EAAs and our Mojito flavoured BCAAs.  


25. Creatine & Creapure 

Scientifically to improve performance, by delivering energy quickly, and increasing overall power. Our Creatine is a brilliant gift for anyone you know trying to improve their performance in the gym, and our Creapure is our purest form of creatine. The perfect supplement to support an ambitious weightlifter.  


26. Myprotein x Hotel Chocolat Layered Bar

Treat your gym-bunny friends this Christmas with a Myprotein x Hotel Chocolat Layered Bar.  

Power up your protein snacks with Myprotein x Hotel Chocolat goodies. Our most indulgent bar to date, including all Hotel Chocolat ingredients, apart from our protein doughs. The best of both worlds.


27. Filled Cookie

Just like Santa likes cookies and milk, bodybuilders like the occasional cookie (protein packed of course) and we don’t think they should miss out.  

A soft gooey centre, and with 20g of protein, this cookie beats any other dessert for a bodybuilder.  

We recommend Double Chocolate and Caramel for pure indulgence.  


28. Defence Shots

We can’t have our bodybuilders getting ill with the flu and missing out on training. That’s why our Defence Shots are the perfect, thoughtful gift for weightlifters. Made with an essential blend of vitamins and minerals, including the all-important vitamin C and zinc, these will definitely bring a smile. 


29. Protein Granola

Whether it’s for breakfast or a post-workout snack, protein granola is a great way to get a protein hit for those with more of a sweet tooth.  

Mix with yoghurt, or milk to make a high protein, tasty snack.  


30. FlavDrops

For those weightlifters that don’t want any excess sugar or calories when they go on that cut, our FlavDrops are ideal. With so many flavours to choose from, you can create a selection for your bodybuilder to choose from, whether its Peanut Butter for their morning protein porridge, or Vanilla to sweeten a shake.  


Take Home Message 

The ultimate gift guide is here to help you give some thoughtful gifts this Christmas, to inspire them to keep pushing with training, and give them the tools to do better next year than any year previous.  

And give some tasty treats along the way too, it is Christmas after all.
