25 Gifts for Runners: Days 1-7

8 Dec

While I know December has already begun (things have been crazy), it’s time for 25 gifts for the runner in your life! To take care of days 1-7 I would like to give you seven great stocking stuffers every runner should love! While some may seem mundane, trust me – I would LOVE all of these in my stocking!

1. Bodyglide. While they may not admit where they use it, trust me this will be appreciated.

Bodyglide The Original Anti-Chafe Balm

2. Khiels Lip Balm No. 1. Best lip treatment ever. Has sunscreen in it and isn’t sticky. Wonderful even if the runner in your life isn’t as “girly” as me and doesn’t wear makeup.

Kiehl's Since 1851 Lip Balm #1 - Cranberry

3.Goody Stay Put Hairbands. Really great for keeping your ponytail in place. Nothing is more annoying when your “in place” hairstyle starts to fall loose. To earn extra points, try to pick up some that match the color of her hair!

Goody StayPut Elastics, Black
4. Sunscreen. I prefer Coppertone Sport but everyone is different. Things to look for in a good running sunscreen are the following:

  • SPF above 30
  • “Sweatproof” and/or “Waterproof” on the package
  • “Long lasting” on the package
  • No fragrances – I speak from personal experience, it distracts your racing when you realize you smell like a speeding bottle of Malibu Rum. Hard not to gag mid run.
Neutrogena Ultimate Sport Face, SPF 70, 2.5 Ounce
Coppertone Sport Sunscreen Lotion, SPF 30, Ultra Sweat-Proof, 8-Ounces. (Pack of 2)

5. Gels, Shot Bloks & Sport Beans. The best thing about these is that you can buy them individually or just pick up one pack of blocks and put them in the stocking. While during a race the runner in your life may have a particular routine, giving them a new fuel source during the holidays is the perfect way for them to experiment with something they have never tried. Personally I hope to try the Sport Beans as I have heard great things but have never actually bought them myself!

GU Energy Gel - Peppermint Stick
Black Cherry

Jelly Belly Sport Beans, Lemon Lime Energizing Jelly Beans, 1-Ounce Bags (Pack of 24)

6. iTunes Giftcard. Any denomination and the runner in your life will love it. Whether it is good for five or twenty new songs, this will make any runner’s day!

iTunes Gift Card - Silhouette - $25

7. Nunn. It is the perfect size for a stocking and comes in so many great flavors!
