We all know the struggle of shopping for the perfect present and how it can become a bit of a challenge. How much should I spend? What are their interests? Will they even like it? Put those worries to rest with our official Lorna Jane gift guide for her!

After 28 years since our first store opening, we’ve picked up a thing or two about what women want from their activewear. Gifting your friend, family, or loved one a Lorna Jane product is not only gifting them with luxurious and sophisticated sportswear but showcasing your love and care for their health and well-being. Ultimately empowering them to live a life they love.

Whether you’re shopping for a thank you, surprise, milestone, anniversary, birthday gifts, office secret Santa or a well-deserved act of self-care, we’re here to help! We have compiled some of our most iconic pieces loved by women in Australia and worldwide that your loved one will truly appreciate.

So, let’s bring in the gift ideas for her!

The Basics: Sports Bras

Like a supportive friend, every woman needs a supportive sports bra that not only looks great but is functional too. At Lorna Jane, we have bras with varying levels of support, from all-day to high and maximum support.

Our popular Compress & Compact Sports Bra is perfect for an avid fitness enthusiast. It provides maximum support at the gym, running or high-intensity workouts. Features include clasp back, adjustable straps, plus lightweight and moisture-wicking material.

For yoga lovers and women who love low-intensity workouts such as walking or pilates, our all-day support bras such as the Lay Back, Pace It or Lifted sports bras are best suited. While these do provide some support, they are also more comfortable for longer use with lightweight and breathable materials.

Let’s not forget new mother’s looking to get back into workouts who added comfort and breastfeeding functionality in their sports bras. Our LJ Racer Back Nursing Bra or LJ Nursing Bra are the perfect solutions. They feature maximum support, with a lightweight, soft feel plus adjustable straps and are feeding friendly.

The Top: Shirts, Singlets & Tanks

Now, no activewear outfit is complete without a cute tee or tank to top off the ensemble. At Lorna Jane, we are world-renowned for our iconic slogan singlets and basic tanks. But we also have a wide range of oversized tees, seamless shirts, cropped tops, and much more!

If your loved one is a comfort or loungewear lover, you can’t go wrong with the oversized Boyfriend Tee, Hype Washed Oversized Tee, Knockout Muscle Tank or Free Spirit Oversized Long Sleeve Top. These pieces can be effortlessly incorporated into her workout wardrobe, yoga apparel or even worn casually with jeans or bike shorts for an elevated athleisure look.

For women who often participate in higher-intensity workouts such as running, gym, training, tennis, pilates, and more, a tighter-fitting and more functional top is needed. Lorna Jane pieces perfect for this include the Feel Comfortable Acid Wash Active Tank, Slouchy Gym Tank, Gym Bunny Seamless Long Sleeve Top, Hiit It Active Long Sleeve Top or Muscle Tank. Making these the best gift option for a regular gym-goer.

Our maternity range of tees and tops are also perfect for new and expecting mums while they need added support in their activewear. This includes our LJ Active Feeding Tee, LJ Maternity Active Feeding Long Sleeve Top , LJ Maternity Over Bump Active Tank, or LJ Maternity Over Bump Active Tee. These shirts have been engineered to provide easy access for breastfeeding and pumping while enabling enough mobility for exercise and looking cute in the process!

The Bottom: Leggings, Shorts & Skirts

There truly is no better gift than finding the perfect pair of leggings, supportive shorts, or a super cute skirt. Give the gift of sophisticated activewear with a pair of iconic Lorna Jane leggings such as the Hi-Fold Lotus No Chafe Ankle Biter Leggings or the No Ride Booty Ankle Biter Leggings.

Alternatively, if your giftee lives in a warmer coastal climate, a pair of comfortable bike shorts such as the Lotus Bike Shorts or Amy Phone Pocket Bike Short might be a better fit.

Regular runners and high-intensity workout lovers might also like a lightweight and breathable pair of shorts like the Ultra High Waisted Run Short or the New Original Run Short. Or if shorts aren’t her speed, try a flowy tennis skirt such as Rally Active Skirt.

The best part is all Lorna Jane products are designed for long-term use. All our products are made with the intention to be worn for seasons and years to come. So, gifting her, Lorna Jane is gifting her activewear to last her months and months!

We all know the perfect loungewear set is hard to come by, and many don’t choose to invest in quality tracksuits for themselves. This makes them the perfect gift to treat her too!

If you’re looking for a more expensive yet thoughtful gift, try our matching set Relax Track Pants and Relax Sweat Crewneck. These are a staple at the LJ HQ for loungewear (and more often than not, our work from home wardrobe!) with their oversized fit, high-rise, cotton blend and phone pocket – they’re the perfect lounge apparel for the cooler months!

In warmer climates or summer, a thoughtful loungewear gift is a lightweight sweater and some comfy cotton shorts to match. These are perfect is she is always running errands, likes chilling out at home or going for a walk in the park. Try the Time-Out Sweat Shorts and Active Nation Grown On Neck Hoodie for a neutral and casual sportswear look – cute individually or paired together!
