If you know someone who carries around their gym clothes in a plastic grocery bag, a gym bag would make a wonderful gift idea for Christmas. Gym bags typically are roomy enough to hold clothing, shoes, toiletries, and often have separate compartments to keep the sweaty clothing & shoes away from the clean clothes and other items. Here a closer look at 10 gym bags for women.
Gym Bags for Women: REI Balance Gym Bag
Not only is this gym bag functional, it’s eco-friendly too! This gym bag from REI is made of old soda bottles and post-consumer recycled polyester.

The downside is that the shower caddy is very small and the shoe compartment is on the smaller side (those with larger feet might have difficulty stuffing their shoes inside).
