    If you want unique gifts, visit http://shop.cafepress.com/running  This is the best site I have found for all things running, including all the apparal and specialty items.

    Wishing you many productive miles and happy shopping!

    RunGoddessBA  the thing about buying gifts for runners is there is lots to chose from. We got to be the easiest people on the planet to buy gifts for. Some of my favorites are a gift certificate for wherever I buy my shoes ( holibird or eastbay for me) and they have lots of other things to choose from. A subscription to Runner's World mag is another one that is good. My favorite running gift of all time was when my wife signed me up for a HM in Maui. Awesome! It don't have to be Hawaii but any race that you know your person has a interest in would be great. Just remember to give him/her enough time to train. I hope this is a help. Good luck and happy holidays. Jasko123 I checked out the website you suggested and it is great.  I'll probably use this in the future.

    A lot of runners are nerds (myself included), so you can't go wrong with a running book. I put up a list of all that I own here: Running Books.

     

    I also have a list of "weird" gifts that are a little off the beaten path: Unconventional Running Gifts.

     

    Hope they give you some good ideas! If all else fails, get that special runner in your life a foam roller. Everyone likes some self-massage for injury prevention.

     

    Take care,

    - Jason.
