We’re getting close to Christmas, have you checked your favorite runner’s stocking stuffers off the list yet? If not, here are some great ideas to get you started!
- Brooks Nightlife Mesh Cap— Brooks running hats are my favorite because they aren’t too stiff, and they are VERY breathable. Since many of us are stuck running in lower light conditions (or even in the dark!), make sure you stay visible with Nightlife version of this hat! I have it in pink and white, and it’s a definite go-to in my winter running wardrobe– especially for long run days!
- JoyJoy watch— If your favorite runner is a traditionalist and prefers running without a GPS watch, the Joy Joy watches have a number of different features to help your runner keep time. The digital watch heads can be paired with a wide variety of fun silicone watch bands. There are a TON of choices to choose from and the price point is reasonable (about $19 for the watch head and $18 for the interchangeable bands).
- deFUNKit— Anyone who lives with a runner (or any other athlete) knows that gear can really stink! There’s a great new product called deFUNKit which allows you to pre-treat running clothes to help prevent horrendous odors (WIN!). The product lasts for 20 different launderings and works on natural and synthetic fibers. Most importantly, it’s made with oxygenators and enzymes, phosphate-free cleaners, and all-natural deodorizers, so it’s safe for kids too! A couple of packets would make perfect stocking stuffers!
- GU Energy Gel Holiday 8-Pack Salted Caramel (or whichever flavor he/she prefers!)– If your favorite runner likes to run long, chances are he/she could use a replenishment of their GU supply. Salted caramel is my absolute fave flavor, but there are a number of others from which to choose!
- Pearl Izumi Thermal Hat— You can always use another running hat for cold days, and this Pearl Izumi hat is a perfect choice. It comes in both men’s and women’s and is made from fast-drying thermal fabric. There are also reflective accents for increased visibility in low light and darkness.
