Gifts for the Runner

Are you having a hard time looking for gifts to give your loved one or friend? What do you get for the person who seems to have everything? What about the runner in your life? To help you with your dilemma, I have compiled a short list of things to help you check them off your list.

Gifts that motivate:

Wearable fitness jewelry is all the trend right now. The jewelry not only survives the rigors they may put it through, but it serves as a good reminder when they may want to give up or throw in the towel. It can help them push through and remind them of what they are capable of.

Momentum jewelry offers motivate wraps, suede cuffs, and shoe charms that can help encourage or motivate your friend during a hard race or workout.

Endorphin Warrior  is another great place to shop for suede cuffs, bracelets, and stackable rings with positive and powerful messages. They believe in giving back. When you purchase a LIVE UNLIMITED braceley from Endorphin Warrior, $6 from each sale goes directly to the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) to help support research, and clinical care/services for patients.

Gifts that will help them recover:

1. Who doesn't like Epsom salts? It helps sooth tired and achy bodies after some serious training. Menthol and Eucalyptus scents are also great when you are sick or recovering from a flu or cold (Tis the season!) Lavender scented salts help relax and calm you after a hard or stressful day. And now you can find bubble bath/Epsom salt combinations from Dr. Teals! Epsom salts are sold are inexpensive gift items and can be picked up at Wal-Mart.

2. Foam rollers and tennis balls are also great for sore muscles and feet. Tennis balls can be purchased at your local Wal-Mart or Sports Store. Foam rollers come in all shapes, sizes, and prices to match your budget. They are in most sports stores or you may be lucky and find one at Wal-Mart (Can you tell I am a fan of the one stop shopping in Wal-Mart!)

Gifts that help memorialize an important date or race:

Gone for a Run offers personalized products from everything to coffee mugs to Christmas ornaments like the ornament above. It is virtually a one stop shop for runners with some really cute things. Prices vary.

Gift Baskets/Bags:

Gift baskets can match almost any budget and are so versatile. You can put as much or as little as you want together. They can be themed or you can just fill them with an assortment of items. Gift baskets filled with lotions, foot rub, aloe socks, fingernail polish, nail files, PlowOn Gum (natural energy gum), Protein cookies from Lenny&Larrys, hot chocolate packets, or candy is a great way to help a runner pamper their feet from all the abuse they put them through, and warm up after a cold Winter run!

No matter what you give your friend or family member, I know that they will be grateful with. Remember, it doesn't have to be complicated. Maybe it means taking them out for coffee.

Most important of all, don't forget to make memories and be present this holiday season.
