If you’ve been looking for gift ideas for the runner in your life, then look no further. Delight a half marathon enthusiast, a triathlon trainer, or your trail running, urban jogging, late-night sprinter.
For the family member who loves to pound the pavement, check out our top seven holiday gift ideas below:
1. Head Torch
Open up a whole new world of running with a lightweight running torch. Ledlenser has an entire range dedicated to running with clever features like rechargeable batteries, reflective headbands, and rain resistance.
2. Jogging Hat
Protect your runner from the elements year-round with a hat designed specifically for the challenges runners face. Look for UPF50+ for sun protection, or merino and moisture-wicking fabrics for running in the cooler months.
3. Touchscreen Running Gloves
A cool starts to the day is no match for a great pair of running gloves, especially when they boast touchscreen capability. Since most runners have music or a podcast playing while they run, you’ll likely want to select a pair of gloves featuring touch screen compatibility. Those with this feature will let the wearer use their smartphone without having to take off their gloves.
4. Foam Roller
After a run, you need to stretch and recover, and many runners enjoy using a muscle roller to work out any tightness in their legs. A great foam roller will help massage a runner’s leg muscles and get as deep as possible into their toughest knots. When used correctly, foam rollers improve flexibility and circulation, lessen joint and muscle pain, and increase balance and range of motion, making them an excellent gift for the runner in your life.
5. Running Headphones
If you know a runner who enjoys a podcast or music while they hit the pavement or their favorite trail, they need headphones designed for running. No runner enjoys earbuds falling out of their ears or giving them uneven sound quality. An excellent pair of running headphones will be water-resistant, fit securely, and deliver strong sound quality.
6. Stretch Belt
A belt with a difference, a stretch belt lets your favourite runner head out with their phone, keys, and even water on their run while keeping hands and pockets free without jingling and distracting. A great running belt eliminates bouncing and discomfort so you can get on with running without distraction.
7. New Anti-Blister Running Socks
Anti-blister running socks are an excellent gift. Runners know just how important reliable and comfortable socks are and will love them as a present. Blister-free socks will improve a runner’s overall performance and comfort by keeping excess moisture and friction at bay. Since blister relief is essential to a runner’s ability to stay pain-free and stick to their running schedule, anti-blister running socks are an excellent present.
