Gift Ideas for a Runner

Gift Ideas: The Runner

Posted in GEAR GUIDES, GIFT GUIDE By

We all have that one friend, family member, or co-worker who logs more miles in their running shoes than they do in their car. Whether they’re just trying to shed some extra pounds from weekends of binging on beer and Netflix, or they’re training year-round for an ultra marathon, this person is only happy pounding mile after mile on the pavement or nearest mountain trail.

Instead of a tie or an advent calendar, get the runner in your life one of these gifts curated specifically for runners. They’ll thank you on their next morning run.

Garmin Forerunner 935

Garmin Forerunner 935

Sure, a budget-level Timex has a stop watch and a backlight, but for the avid runner, the Garmin Forerunner 935 takes workouts just as seriously as the runner wearing it thanks to a heart rate monitor, a barometer, and altimeter, a compass, and advanced dynamics such as ground contact time, stride length, etc. When you’re done, it’ll also let you in on some data — specifically if you’re under-training, over-training, and other performance monitoring features. – Buy It

Saucony Throttle Running Shorts

Saucony Throttle Running Shorts

Without a decent pair of running shorts, you’re basically running naked. Opt instead for the Saucony Throttle Running Shorts, which are built with 2-in-1 technology for superior performance, mobility and comfort, and the brand’s breathable Ventilite technology. – Buy It

Under Armour Horizon KTV Trail Running Shoes

Under Armour Horizon KTV Trail Running Shoes

For some runners, the pavement just doesn’t provide the same thrill and peace of mind that a secluded, mountainous trail does. For the avid trail runner on your shopping list, we recommend the Horizon KVT by Under Armour. A translucent ripstop upper, an internal bootie construction, and an EVA midsole all will have any elite runner shredding the trails in style. – Buy It

Apple Music

Apple Music

Indulging in your favorite song, album, or artist, without ever hearing an annoying ad, is as simple as signing up for Apple Music. Play any song you desire in the app’s 40-million-song catalog, along with your entire iTunes library for only $9.99 a month. – Buy It

Nike Flex 2-In-1 Running Shorts

Nike Flex 2-In-1 Running Shorts

The Flex 2-in-1 Running Shorts offer up just that — two types of functionality in one. Between breathability and additional support built right in, there’s no question that the 2-in-1 Running Shorts could be among the best things to happen to your run since Nike running shoes. – Buy It

Nike FlyKnit Trainer

Nike FlyKnit Trainer

Although it’s not one of the brand’s more exclusive releases, the FlyKnit Trainer is a modern sneaker that makes sense for the guy on the go thanks to a one-piece Flyknit upper that provides a snug, sock-like fit, Flywire cables that ensure superior support and comfort, and a grippy rubber sole for unparalleled traction. – Buy It

Earin Wireless Earbuds

Earin Wireless Earbuds

The Earins Wireless Earbuds are just that—completely cordless in-ear headphones outfitted with a pair of dedicated amps that power two highly responsive speakers to create a crisp, clear sound with minimal distortion on your morning run. And without any cords weighing them down, the Earins Wireless Earbuds weigh in at a humble 3.5 grams. – Buy It

Under Armour Core Run Liner Gloves

Under Armour Core Run Liner Gloves

Nothing hampers a cold morning run like cold lungs and cold hands. Keeping the hands of that special person on your shopping list warm is well-played by gifting a solid pair of running gloves.
