Christmas Gifts for the Runner in Your Life

There’s not a better week to snap up all your Christmas gifts — keep a look out for some great deals. If you have a runner in the family, here are some ideas to get you started.

  • GPS WATCH :: Get the Forerunner 935 at BestBuy for $399, or the even the Forerunner 945 for $499. Great prices for these solid running watches.
  • STAY REFLECTIVE :: The Proviz Reflect 360 Running Jacket. Just look at how reflective these are. They look amazing. At the moment, Proviz have it listed at $112 (down from $140).
  • NEW SHOES :: Change their running game by treating them to a pair of Nike Vaporfly Next% shoes. I think every runner secretly wishes to run a race in these. On the high end at $250.
  • GLOVES :: The weather is turning colder. Do they like a good pair of mittens but need their fingers out for those run selfies? Then look no further than Turtle Gloves. Get 15% off with code TURTLEGLOVESBR.
  • BEST ROLLER :: Roll out those muscle kinks with an Addaday Roller. Recover faster for under $50.
  • COACHING :: What about some coaching for an upcoming race? It’s so easy to find a coach over at VDOT02.com. I’ve used this before and loved the app. Coaches set their own prices.
  • RUNNING DYNAMICS :: Switch to running by Power instead of pace, time or distance — get a Stryd power meter. It will work with your sports watch and give you extra data on your run. And bonus — use it with the Zwift platform.
  • GOOD READING :: Introduce them to an inspirational running book, like “Born To Run” by Christopher McDougall.
  • DITCH THE PINS :: Gift a set of custom BibBoards and they’ll never have to fiddle with safety pins again! So good I wrote a song about it.
  • SAFETY FIRST :: Give them and yourself peace of mind with a RoadId Wrist ID and Sidekick ID. There’s a sale on right now!
  • AUDIO :: For the music lover (or audio book, podcast, etc.), the absolute best in running headphones are AfterShokz bone conduction headphones. Check out the special bundles here.
  • SOCKS :: And finally, something I’ve found extremely effective in reducing blisters and other feet issues – Injinji toe socks! No joke, these things are game changers.
