Top Ten Gifts Ideas For Runners

Posted by Coach Jenny Hadfield on Dec 17, 2007 9:33:46 AM

Looking for a few last minute shopping ideas for your favorite running buddies?  Here is a list of my all-time favorite gifts for runners this season.


  1. HATPHONES:  Part hat, part headphones the Nike Hatphones has built in speakers and a slot for your iPod Nano and makes this the perfect hat for runners who enjoy music!

  2. Nike  Sport Kit:    This cool and inexpensive kit turns your iPod Nano into a speed distance watch and verbally tells you speed, distance and pace through your iPod!   Combine this with the Hatphones for the ultimate running music holiday gift.

  3. Gift Certificate to their favorite running store or coffee shop.

  4. Active Trainer programs to help them prepare for their next race.

  5. Reflective vest or flashing lights for safe winter running.

  6. Sports Massage, foam roll or The Stick for the inflexible runner.

  7. Marathon Charm for their latest finish!

  8. Yak Trax for safe snow running.

  9. Subscription to their favorite running magazine or Running Calendar.

  10. Race registration to keep them motivated in 2008!
