Best Gifts for the Runner in Your Life


The gift-giving season is upon us, and there is always that one person every year that you just can’t figure out what to get them. Well, if they’re a runner you’re in luck, because there are many great gift options for the runner in your life. Here are a few hot items that will make your holiday gift giving a little bit easier this season.

There is nothing that can make a run more enjoyable than listening to some jams at the same time, and a nice pair of lightweight headphones are perfect for the job. The SMS Audio Street by 50 Headphones would make a great gift for any runner, due to their great sound quality, superior comfort and tangle-free cord.

Want to keep your runner safe during late night or early morning runs? The Nathan Streak Reflective Vest and the Nike Reflective Running Vest will surely satisfy this purpose. Both vests offer 360-degree visibility in low light situations, ensuring that everyone else can see your runner, even on the darkest of roads.

If the runner in your life sports a pair of Nike+ shoes during their favorite activity, give them a Nike+ Stand Alone Sensor.  With this device, a runner can track their progress on an iPod Nano, and listen to their favorite workout music mix at the same time. The Nike+ Stand Alone Sensor keeps runners motivated and inspired during their runs.

Need some great stocking stuffer ideas for your runner as well? The Mission Athletecare Blister Armour Anti-Friction Stick is a gift that won’t break the bank, and one that your runner will surely appreciate by eliminating chafing and blisters during runs. The Mission Athletecare Enduracool Instant Cooling Towel would be another great stocking-stuffer, providing your runner with the perfect way to cool down after long heated runs.
