Shopping for him this Christmas at Life Style Sports

Screen Shot    at

Other halves of the male species can be impossible to buy for. My other half never tells me what he would like for Christmas instead he let’s me figure it out on own, which generally leads to use of the gift receipts in late December. But thankfully, this year, Life Style Sports came to my rescue. He’s a keen sports fan, and thanks to an interest in fitness and Leinster Rugby, I was spoilt for choice.


If your guy is a die hard rugby fan, then LSS have the whole range for you. Mine has a lot of Leinster goodies already, but he did happen to mention on the sly that his current season polo shirt needed replacing. Tick. I found a lovely striped one (in the middle of the picture above) for €40. The same goes for the range of Ireland rugby clothing and accessories. I reckon these make for great stocking fillers too. Hats and socks specifically.

As official retail partner to Leinster, Munster and Connacht, Life Style Sports is offering season ticket holders a 10% discount off ALL purchases (not just rugby related) as a Christmas treat!


When it gets down to training gear, everyone has a personal preference. As I had a rummage through his gym gear as part of my gift research, I found that he needed a good running jacket for cold nights. He’s training for a super long race, so Nike have a great range of breathable, weather proof outerwear. I like the neon too, as it keeps you visible on darker mornings and evenings. Highlighter yellow is bang on trend!


In terms of footwear, I needed some direction, so thanks to the experts in the shoe department in Life Style Sports Grafton Street, I went for trail runners from Asics. These are designed for running on varied surfaces like mud and tracks. I was really impressed with the range of specialist running shoes Life Style Sports offers for men and women. I had a gait analysis with them last year, and it really helped me choose a pair of runners that suited how I run and work out.

And if you prefer to let your loved one choose something for themselves, Life Style Sports have gift cards that you can by for as little as €10. Another stocking filler idea!
