10 for $10: Summer Games Edition
Today’s gift guide is all about a certain sporting event being held in Rio right now. I haven’t rounded up 10 Olympics-themed gift ideas per se, but moreso 10 gifts for people into the sports featured in the Olympics. Without further ado, here are 10 Summer Games gift ideas for $10 or less (not including tax / shipping / duties / exchange).
Anti-Fog Swimming Goggles – $5 @ Amazon.ca
If you’re not a huge swimmer, give it a go with goggles on – not only does it keep the sting out of your eyes, it opens a whole new world under the surface.
JEF Tee Caddy with Markers – $2.99 @ Sport Chek
This stocking stuffer-worthy gadget is easy to strap onto your keys or bag, and features room for plenty of tees plus three ball markers to keep your game on point. Welcome back to the Olympics golf!
Namsan Bracelet Visibility Wristband – $6.50 @ Amazon.ca
Those slap bracelets from the 90s are back and better than ever – with a functional purpose! This sleek slap-on bracelet has LEDs inside, giving you a bright glow that alerts drivers when you’re pounding the pavement first thing in the a.m. or late at night.
Nike PSG Skills Soccer Ball – $10 @ Sport Chek
This non-traditional soccer ball has high contrast colours to help you keep a closer eye on it. While there are certainly fancier balls out there, this is a good one to get the kids training with, or to just kick around at the park.
Nuun Electrolyte Replacement Tablets – $8.25 each
When I get dehydrated, nothing quenches my thirst better than something with electrolytes. Try these handy, portable tabs – just pop one into your water for a boost of flavour and health. Ideal for those perfecting their marathon or triathlon a-game.

Add an edge to your game with this handy little gadget designed to improve your shooting ability. Slip it on your hand to get the optimal finger spread to better aim the ball. Ingenious!
Swiftflyte Table Tennis Balls – $4.29 @ Sport Chek
I love that table tennis (aka ping pong in my world) is an Olympic sport. I also love that these ping pong balls mimic the balls of other Olympic sports. Too cute!
ChafeZone Stick – $9.75 @ MEC
When you’re training like the pros, you’re bound to get some rough spots. This soothing, glide-on formula is great for anywhere your equipment is rubbing you raw – whether gloves for weight lifting, shorts for cycling, or even your runners along your ankles.
Rawlings Official League Baseball – $9.99 @ Sport Chek
Take me out to the ball game – or the backyard – with this training ball that’s designed to official league specs. Add a bat and some gloves and you’ve got the makings of a mini-world series at home.
Suddora Sweatband / Wristband Set – $9.99 @ Amazon.ca
No matter how you’re sweatin’ it up, some wristbands and a headband may be lifesavers on the court / field / dance floor, you name it. This classic set comes in an assortment of rainbow hues to complete your fitness ensemble.
