2012 Gift Guide

By AFM – December 3, 2012

Every family is composed of people who want completely different things. For better or for worse, without each hobby, dream and quirk your home wouldn’t be the same. When we embrace our differences, they can make for a fun family dynamic. However, they don’t exactly bode well for our holiday shopping. Austin Fit Magazine has pulled together a Gift Guide full of fitness-related items to help you satisfy each of the unique personalities that make up your family and loved ones.
