Holiday Gift Guide for Runners
We have reached the end of another week and now it is fast tracking to Christmas! If you have neglected your Christmas shopping up to this point, relax, I totally have you covered.
Buying for an athletic type on your list when you have no concept of the sport doesn’t have to be tricky. I have curated some of the greatest and best things out there at a low cost.
Check it out:
This is a fabulous skin care line designed with active people in mind.

A small company with fabulous product, this is sure to delight anyone on your list.

As a person that probably is wearing a sports bra underneath my blazer as I chose to run an extra 10 minutes instead of saving time for universally accepted bathing habits, the idea of workout gear that doubles as clothing WINS. J Walking Designs is an adorable start up company from the states that produces cute and quality product for $55.
This is a fabulous cookbook that offers 10 desserts that are actually healthy for you, providing Paleo, Vegan and Gluten-free options of your favourite Christmas goodies.
Written by Leanne at Healthful Pursuit, a multi-talented holistic nutritionalist, it is a beautiful and quality cook book.

Any outdoor runner on your list will go nuts over a pair of good touch screen gloves so they can be rocking out to their favourite tunes while keeping their hands warm!
Retails from $20-$40.
5. Race Entry –
If you REALLY want to surprise a runner on your list, buy them a race entry.
Search for local and unique races in your area and gift them with a certificate to the event.
For the road runner who is looking to shake things up a bit, a 5 Peaks trail entry would be a fun challenge and something to look forward to all year long!
6. Running Literature –
For the runner in the midst of their off- season, a new book or a magazine subscription would be the perfect, thoughtful gift and a fabulous way to pass their new-found time. A few of the tried and true classics:
Runners World produces a new running calendar annually. It is full of beautiful photos of runners, motivational quotes and facts and a space to record your daily workouts.
Perfect Stocking Stuffers:
All Natural peanut butter – This is a holy grail of food for runners. Delicious and protein-packed, they will be delighted.
Quality socks – There are few things a runner needs more than socks. Hit up your local running store and nab a couple pairs for the runner on your list.
