So today I thought we’d talk about some gifts you can give to your favorite runner this season! Whether you are going to your running group Christmas party, or you simply want to give YOURSELF something (hey…you are allowed to be your favorite runner – just saying) here are a few ideas you can have handy on your gift giving shopping list.
–Runner sunglasses. Some sunglasses that are all the rage in my area right now are Goodr Sunglasses. They come in some pretty fancy colors too and they name all of them different fun names (“Flamingos on a Booze Cruise” or “Breakfast Run to Tiffany’s” for example). Check them out here, I am sure you will fall in love.
–Running cookbook. “Run Fast, Cook Fast, Eat Slow” is a great buy and includes things like post workout meals you can put together in 30 minutes or less! Sounds like a win/win to me.
–Recovery sandals. There are lots of ’em on the market, PR Soles specifically are great at absorbing impact and include acupoint massage triggers that work your feet as you go. I can get onboard with that.
–Thermal vest. Brooks Cascadia vest looks comfy and fashionable, I’ve also found some great thermal vests at places like Ross and TJ Maxx if you are looking to save a little money. Check the Brooks vest out here.
–Massage gift card. This is always a great option for the runner in your life that does not get massages. I personally have benefitted from them greatly over the years and attribute being injury free to my monthly massage fix. Your favorite runner will love you forever.
–Headlamp. I personally like the Petzl brand, also check out different brands from places like Academy or REI.
–A box of GU energy gels. My personal favorite is the salted caramel. You can purchase an assortment 24 pack on Amazon or usually go into any of your local running stores to grab a box.
