Holiday Gift Guide for Runners 2015

This year I have really been struggling to come up with gift ideas for others as well as a wish list for myself. So instead of actually being productive with those tasks, I came up with a list of gifts ideas for runners. These are items I already own that I think most runners would like to receive! You can see my gift guide from last year here.

  1. Race bib/medal display: I got this for Christmas last year and still have not hung it up. We are waiting to get our office set up so I can find a place to hang it. I am really excited to eventually get it up!medal display
  2. The Runner's Brain: I talked about reading this before my last marathon and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who runs races and wants to take their mental game to the next level!runners brain
  3. Headband: I struggle with finding hats I like because of my ponytail, but headbands are perfect. I couldn't find the one I have anymore but this one is similar. headband
  4. PRO Compression socks: I talk about these socks all the time because I wear them all the time. I also got Rob hooked on them lately and he asked for another pair for Christmas. procompression
  5. Momentum Jewelry Wrap: I got a motivation bracelet last year that says "Run Strong" and I love to wear it for long runs or races!bracelet
  6. Headlamp: Any runner who is out in the early morning or evening hours would appreciate this gift. I found that this one is the brightest and is also light and stays in place well. headlamp
  7. Flip belt: I wear my flip belt on almost every run and use it to carry my phone and sometimes gels.flip belt
  8. Wine glasses for runners: Alexis sent me these glasses after I coached her for her marathon and I love them! Rob and I drink out of them all the time. I also love that they are sturdy because I have a bad habit of occasionally breaking wine glasses
  9. Running gloves: I can't find the ones I have, but I actually think it's good to have a few different pairs of running gloves for different temperatures and in case you actually decide to wash them once in a while. gloves
  10. Reflective gear: Now that I run in the dark all the time I always wear something reflective, along with my headlamp. I got this for my birthday and I like that I can wear it over anything. It also has a pocket in the front and is comfortable- I don't even notice I am wearing it. reflective vest

Which of these items would you like to receive as a holiday gift?

Any other great gift ideas for runners?

I'm a few weeks late for the actual gift guide theme link-up, but I'm still adding this to Tuesdays' on the Run for this week...I'm sure there are others like me who still need gift ideas! Thanks PattyErika, and Marcia!

  1. Great list! I totally agree on all of it ... :)

    Gloves are perfect as you say, and multiple pairs works great to get you through the winter. I also suggest the combination liner gloves with windproof mittens. That is what helped me through to -25F last winter!

    I love my SPIBelt, just an alternative to FlipBelt.

    One other thing would be RoadID ... the jewelry isn't my thing 😉 but safety gear like RoadID is !

    And agree 100% on the Pro Compression. I started slow, but now wear them on every run, and occasionally just as regular socks!

    1. I do think I should try to get some mittens this year- I have a light pair of gloves that I could probably wear under mittens if it gets really cold out.
      I used to have a spibelt but found that it moved around too much- I know some people swear by them though!
      And yes to the Road ID! I have had one for years (it was on last year's blog post) and a few months ago I upgraded to a silicone band because my old one was getting worn out.
      Also, glad to hear you love PRO Compression as much as I do:)

  2. Great list! I also can't find my headband, so I'm in the market for one as well. I'm thankful it's still been pretty warm around these parts. That medal rack is so cute. I am totally going to be asking for one next year when I truly have my own place! I've kind of started apartment hunting for my impending MD move and it is seriously so exciting!

  3. i love my flipbelt. i love that they now have a hook to hold your keys. i lost my house key once and it was on a cold saturday that my husband had to work yikes! luckily i have friends in my neighborhood that let me borrow their phone...oh yeah this was also before i ran with my cell phone and someone (husband) put the spare key in the garage...oh man brining back old memories lol. these are all great items, but you should add a gift card to massage envy too, because massages are the best :)
