So you (or someone you love) have run your first race, and it’s time to celebrate! I’d love to share some perfect gifts to help commemorate this big moment!
Obviously, a grand celebration calls for bubbles. Treat yourself or your friend to some champagne, sparkling wine, or non alcoholic sparkling cider. You can even find cute little single-serve bottles of bubbly at your local store, which are the perfect size for a quick moment of cheer.
After a big race, muscles are sore and limbs need reinvigoration. Wrap up some soothing epson salt so the new race finisher can enjoy a lovely bath, and get some relief. Epson is easy to find at your local drug store, pharmacy, or even grocery store, so it’s the perfect add to the celebration gift bag.
Obviously, after a big race, finishers are hungry. Treat them to some truly delicious treats: nuts or candy, something salty or something sweet. Be creative and pick some things they will love.
Pampering and self-care is essential after any race, let alone a first one. Gifting some cozy socks is a great way to treat those tired feet and toes, and there are so many options from which to choose.
Commemorative Race Distance Gear
Of course, if you run your first race, you need something that says so. Jewelry, shirts, medal racks, tumblers, and custom art are all great ideas to help you or your friend remember their big day. There are so many choices on Etsy and Amazon, or you can even make something instead.
Maybe it’s me, but I love photos. If you can get an in-race photo or awesome medal photo f your friend, they might love to have a printed, framed copy for their home or office.
What are some great gifts to commemorate yours or a loved one’s first big race?
