Gift ideas for the Runner in your life

Well Christmas is  coming up and some of you might be wondering what to get your running friends..well here are some ideas:

  • Socks...you can never go wrong with a nice pair of running socks.  I love socks!  I really like the Feetures and the Bulaga sock brand.  Someday I will try the injinji socks..not sure how I will like the toe socks.
Feetures Elite Merino+ Ultra Light No Show Tab Socks

  • Gloves!  Its getting cold out there!  Gloves are always great!  Don't worry about getting the latest and greatest..stretch gloves from Walmart or Target work great!  That way if I have to discard them during a race I will not feel guilty. 


  • Reflective vests are great to make sure that cars see your favorite runner while they are out pounding the pavement and the days are shorter.

  • Nothing says Merry Christmas than your favorite Gu!
GU Chomps 16 pk Nutrition

  • A nice basket of products to use on race day.  Some of the race day essentials could include: face wipes, band-aids, Motrin, granola bars, ponytail holders, flip flops..
POND’S® Original Fresh Wet Clean Towelettes
  • Itunes Gift Card - so those runners in your life have new tunes to run to!


  • A new hat or visor is always a great idea!
Nike Dri-fit Visor

When in doubt you could also give the gift of a race entry..put the entry of a local race on a Visa prepaid card.  Who would not love a free race!?!


Hope everyone enjoys the shopping season!

What has been the best running Christmas present that you have received?
