A few weeks ago, I shared a list of holiday gifts I would love to receive, and now I’m flipping things around with
Growing up, we always made a big to-do about stockings. The best gifts always came in the smallest packages, and to this day, all six of us (pugs, too) hang our stockings and wait for the surprises on Christmas morning. So let’s talk about some great stocking stuffers for the runners in your life.
Socks used to be the most boring of gifts, but every runner can always use more.
Even with proper care, colors fade, elastic loses its stretch and pairs lose their partners. Extras are always welcome.
These are a great little gift – functional but cute. There are several companies that offer non-slip bands in a variety of patterns and widths, so you won’t be limited on choices.
Go for something festive, or stick with a more classic option.
Such a simple idea, but so appreciated, fuel is a great gift, especially if your runner is in the midst of a long training cycle. Packets of their favorite gel in an assortment of their preferred flavors or tubes of Nuun are perfect.
Safety is one of those oft-overlooked, but so very necessary parts of running gear. For your runner who goes out early in the morning or after the sun goes down, clip-on strobe lights, shoe lights, or even Knuckle Lights are a fabulous way to show you care.
(Stay tuned for a review on these before the year is out. Spoiler alert: they saved my bacon at Ragnar Trail Alafia River)*.
Stickers, decals, car magnets…. help your runner show off their achievements with customized decorations for their vehicles, laptops or fridges.
There are so many creative options – you are sure to find the perfect one for the runner in your life.
What is your favorite running gift to give?
