It’s that time of year where the holiday gift guides are everywhere! I love looking through them, so I thought I would add one of my own. The best part? These guides aren’t just for Christmas – they can be for any celebration!
Looking for a great gift for the runner on your list? Take a look at a few of my favorite items!
Bright Running Jacket – It is extremely important for runners to stay safe, especially during the winter darkness. A bright running jacket with reflective material is a great gift for anyone who spends time outside! Brooks has a great Nightlife jacket that will keep your runner warm and bright.
Winter Gear – With the temperatures getting colder, we need to bundle up! Hats, gloves and neck warmers are great items to include in your runner’s stocking.
Sparkly Soul Headbands – We women runners love to sparkle! These headbands stay put and offer a little fun to any running wardrobe.
RunnerBox Subscription – Many times we want to try out new items (especially nutrition and fuel), but don’t want to buy it, then find out we don’t like it. A RunnerBox subscription allows runners to try out some new and fun items every other month! It’s the gift that continues all year long.
Gift Cards – Not sure exactly what your runner wants? Great gift card ideas include Road Runner Sports (where any runner can find something!) or iTunes for some great running music.
Socks – Runners use a lot of socks! Balega, Wright, Smartwool and Feetures are popular options to choose from.
Has the runner on your list just completed a goal of theirs? Here are some great ways to help them celebrate!
Race Registration – Is there a race they have been talking about running but haven’t signed up for? Surprise them with a race registration! (If you aren’t sure of their registration details, a Visa gift card toward their registration is great too!)
Erica Sara Designs – For the female runners, this is a fantastic way to celebrate! Erica Sara necklaces are a beautiful way to commemorate a conquered goal! They can be personalized, which makes it even more special.
Digital Running Challenges – Runners love bling, and here’s a way for them to get even more in 2014! Digital Running Club is offering 3 great challenges – the Interstate Challenge, the Hat Trick Challenge and the Grand Slam Challenge. Register your runner for a fun way to keep the celebrations coming!
Massage – A popular way to celebrate all of those training miles is a post-race massage. Get your runner a gift certificate for a spa or local masseuse!
Many runners have a few destination races or vacations on their schedule. Here are some gift ideas for the travel aspect!
Cinda B Bags – These are by far my favorite travel bags! The Super Tote is a great carry on for flights or for a quick overnight trip. There are lots of fun patterns and colors to choose from, as well as other bag options!
ProCompression Socks – Before and after a race, runners legs need to stay loose. Compression socks are a great way to do so! Bonus – they can use the socks during training as well.
Comfy Shirts - I like to be comfortable when I travel and am a huge fan of shirts and tanks with fun sayings. Running on the Wall has many fun shirts to choose from and they are comfy!
Gift Card – We all need a way to stay occupied during the travel process. An Amazon gift card can be used toward books, movies and more!
I could really go on and on, but these are truly some of my favorites. Happy holiday shopping!
What’s on your holiday wish list?
It’s been a snowy and cold week in Michigan! All of my runs have included a cold wind that freezes your legs and behind, snow in your eyelashes and making sure you don’t slip on the ice. Basically, it makes you feel like you’ve gone a lot farther than you really have! Sunday, November 24 […]
I remember a year ago when rumors started swirling about this new technology at Walt Disney World. Even though I love technology, I was really skeptical. A bracelet that includes your room key and park tickets? Scheduling FastPasses? Dining reservations take enough spontaneity out of your vacation as it is! Then MyMagic+ was unveiled for […]
As always, I want to stay authentic and honest. I only showcase products that I truly believe in. Erin Condren did provide me with a discount to purchase my life planner, however I was fully planning on purchasing it completely on my own. My opinions, as always, are honest and mine. I’ve said it once […]
Every time I go on a vacation, I always seem to forget how crazy the week after is! Catching up on emails and piles of paperwork was what most of my week entailed. Add in the fact that it gets dark when I get out of work and the running just wasn’t happening. Basically, I […]
