Chances are…you know a runner. With Christmas right around the corner I thought I’d share suggestions for some gifts and stocking stuffers for the runner (or two) you have in your life. Also, be sure to enter our giveaway for one of the items on this list–details below!
iTunes Gift Card: If the runner in your life listens to music on their long runs–this is a gift that they will truly appreciate. Most runners are constantly adding music to their playlist so an iTunes gift card would make the perfect stocking stuffer.
Massage Gift Certificate: Who wouldn’t like a massage?! But if the runner in your life is like me, it’s seen as a huge luxury that they usually wouldn’t think to splurge on for themselves. Though running is great for you, it can lead to tightness, inflexibility and muscles that need to be massaged–most runners would love a gift like this!
4:09:43: Whether you are are a runner or not, Boston Marathon 2013 is one we will never forget. Hal Higdon compiled the stories of runners who were at the marathon that day–the book brings you to tears, gives you hope, and you find yourself in the hearts of the runners that day. Touching and inspiring.
Race Voucher: Get creative with this one! Make your own homemade voucher for any dollar amount in the promise that you will pay part or all of one of their 2015 races. They say running is a cheap hobby–but if your runner likes to race, those fees can really start to add up. So a promise of $50 or $100 towards a future race would be greatly appreciated by any runner!
Balega Socks: Once I made the switch to these socks, there was no going back to my Target pack. They feel amazing on your feet and make great stocking stuffers!
Zappos Gift Card: Runners can be very particular about their running shoes…so I wouldn’t suggest buying a shoe unless you know exactly the size and model they love. Zappos is a great way to gift running shoes while leaving the selection to the runner. They are usually less expensive than the small running store prices.
You just can’t go wrong with something running related for that special runner in your life. I have no doubt they will appreciate that you know just how much they love running by gifting them with any of the above gift ideas!
Never Give Up,
