    Foot fetish How many times have you stopped during a sesh to wipe down those slick mats? Yogis will get lots of use out of Gaiam Toeless Yoga Socks ($10). This cheap, practical stocking stuffer is a traction sock for slippery mats and those impromptu postures on the wood floor of your living room. One size fits most. Available at Gaiam (877-989-6321).

  2. Hers and his During a recent rehearsal for a prominent Chicago company, we counted 8 of 12 dancers wearing lululemon gear. The sweat-absorbent, form-fitting apparel from the brand with the cult-like following is a cozy complement to a dance or Pilates class or an extra layer for a jaunt by the lake, if you�re feeling ambitious. Try the Swiftly Tech Long Sleeve ($68) or, for guys, the 5 Year Basic Long Sleeve ($78). A pretty penny, indeed, but you�re paying for quality. Available at lululemon athletica, 900 N Michigan Ave (312-951-5923).

    Merce lives The special-edition Merce 65 app ($14.99) comes with a caveat for gift givers: You�ll need to figure out how to gift it while maintaining an element of surprise. This high-quality digital, interactive dance archive is worth the trouble. One of the first of its kind, the app includes images, video, audio and writings from the late great choreographer and company, courtesy of the Cunningham Dance Foundation. Available at iTunes.
