Surprise the runner in your life with the best running stocking stuffers around. I don’t know why, but opening a stocking is my favorite part of Christmas morning. For some reason, some of the best goodies are the smallest, and it’s always fun to see what “Santa” brings.
The obvious answer is to keep with a theme. New running socks totally belong in stockings. Check out the Balega Hidden Comfort No Show Tab for a simple choice that’s bound to be a hit. These are soft, with just the right amount of cushion and I think this Wildberry color way is festive and bright.
I don’t know about you, but I can never have enough running sunglasses, and Goodrs are my favorite. I would love to find a fun style among my running stocking stuffers. To be honest, I ordered You’ll Never Get This Recipe for myself and my upcoming Gingerbread Man 5K, but there are plenty of other styles on my list. At $25-35 a pop, they make nice little treats in that stocking.
Instead of candy, a typical stocking stuffer treat, swap in some different varieties of Honey Stinger fuel. If you know for sure what your runner loves, get that, but if not, one of their sampler packs would be much appreciated. Pro Tip: unbox it before adding to the stocking!
Cold Weather Accessories
While it’s not as much of a concern in Florida, things like gloves, buffs, and hats can be awesome stocking stuffers. Brooks Running has super cute winter-themed accessories, like this pom beanie. Who wouldn’t want to wear a hat with those smiling snowmen?
Sometimes, good things come in small packages. A pair of Shokz bone-conduction headphones are great for runners, and slide perfectly into stockings. Win win! There are a few styles with different colors if this hue of red isn’t your brand of merry or bright, but this would be a great gift in any shade.
Road ID Accessories
Safety is always in season, which makes RoadID bands a great gift. If you have all the correct info for your favorite person, go ahead and order a band and ID or other accessory. If not, a gift card is a great choice so they can build their own!
Give the gift of motivation with these wraps from Momentum Jewelry. Choose from a variety of colors and mantras, for a sweet running accessory that will fit perfectly in any stocking!

You can’t go wrong with Balega socks! I use them all the time and they are incredibly comfy.
I also wouldn’t mind getting a new hydrovest – mine is getting frayed at the edges.

you can never have too many socks or sunglasses! I know you like your glasses as much as I do. Can’t go wrong with any of these

I would love to find any of these in my stocking! I’ve been wearing Knockaround sunglasses but I was thinking about giving Goodr a try.
Running fuel and hydration packets are ALWAYS welcome in my Christmas stocking! I always love motivation bands – sometimes, you just need to be reminded of a mantra, when you’re having a difficult run.
Oooh! I love stocking stuffers. Maybe I should ask Santa for some new sunglasses this year.
