These are a Few of Our Favorite Things: Last minute gifts for runners!

It’s getting down to the wire! We want to share some of our favorite things in order to inspire gift ideas for the runner in your life.


Stocking Stuffers:

LOCK LACES: have a runner in your life who can’t keep their shoes tied or just can’t wait another minute to get out the door? Lock ‘em up.

Big Spoon Roasters: Okay, so Big Spoon Roasters has a gift section on their website…It includes everything from a coffee lovers box to gift cards.

ALL OF THE COFFEE: We’re begging you to include this on your runner’s Christmas list. It’s a must.

Toe Spacers: Rita got us to fall in love with this craze after taking the advice of our strength training coach, Angela. These things are said to help relieve foot pain and prevent injury.


SOCKS ON SOCKS ON SOCKS: If it’s one thing that runners need a constant supply of, it’s socks. No seriously…these things just disappear. Whether it’s leaving them on the track after changing into spikes, or the washing machine eating them…WE ALL NEED MORE. (We prefer Stance socks because of their cool designs and sweat-wicking properties.)

Oiselle Key Chains: Simple, but they make a statement. There’s nothing like seeing “go fast take chances” as you hop out of the car for a workout on the Tobacco Trail!

Goodr Glasses: no slip, no bounce, and they don’t fog up! Plus, their names are awesome.

A head lamp: our night-time ultra friends swear by this bright one from Petzl to light up their nights!

For cold mornings: the warmest mittens and coziest beanie you’ll ever find!

Towel: to keep the car from getting too muddy after a trail run, or sweaty after a workout. This one is super cute and this one is specialized!

For the extra special ones…


Puffer! We love the puffy track jacket and the queen jacket—no such thing as too much puff!

Wireless Headphones: To facilitate podcast obsessions—True Crime, How I Built This, Work Play Love, and so many more!

Shoes: Can’t run without these! But okay, we know maybe runners can be a little picky. A gift card to your favorite local running store is the perfect solution!

GPS Watch: You can always count on Runners World and DC Rainmaker for a good run-down!

Foam Roller: We love Roll Recovery, plus Trigger Point is great for the essentials, and this one serves a dual purpose.

Yeti. Everyone needs one.
