I love buying gifts for my family and friends. There’s something so satisfying about picking out a gift for someone and seeing them light up when they open it. There are so many fantastic products out there for runners, and I wanted to share some that are on my Christmas list with you!
PRO Compression socks
Sparkly Soul headbands
If you love standing out during races and wearing something unique, InknBurn is the answer! They come out with such beautiful pieces of clothing, ranging from bottoms that look like denim to shirts that look like a holiday sweater – they have something for everyone. Not sure what the recipient might like? Get them a gift card and let them pick it out themselves! They have camisoles, tees, tanks, long sleeves, shorts, capris, and pants/tights to choose from. All made in the USA by a small company of less than 20 people. The quality and art you’ll find here is hard to beat!
I absolutely love my RoadID. I actually wear mine everyday and not just when I run or work out. If you’ve never heard of the company, they make identification both for your wrist as well as one you can wear on your shoe. You put any vital information on them so that in case of an emergency where you’re unresponsive, the people caring for you are able to contact your loved ones. I know I’m guilty of not always filling out the form on the back of my race bibs, so having this guy on my wrist is not a bad idea. They also have a service you can pay extra for that has a number to call that gives any allergies or other vital medical information.
A Race Entry
If you know of a race that someone wants to run, a race entry could be the PERFECT gift! Back at Christmas 2013, the hubby gifted me the 2014 Wine and Dine half marathon weekend, complete with airfare, hotel, race entry, and park tickets! Now, yours doesn’t have to be as elaborate as that, but it could be a great idea…maybe find a race that you can run with them!
Those are just a few things on my Christmas list…please feel free to leave any additional suggestions in the comments….I would love to see them and maybe even learn of a new product to try out!
Until next time,
