Great Gifts For Runners

Updated on September 8, 2014

Buying the perfect present for the runner in your life

Runners are a pretty unique bunch. They are usually passionate, motivated and live to run. Make their day with one of these great unique running gifts, move beyond the old standbys like t-shirts and training bags and get them something this year that shows you have really done your homework.

Any of the gifts on this list will bring a big smile to your runners face.

"Man imposes his own limitations, don't set any"

-Anthony Bailey

injinji Performance Micro Toesocks

These toe socks may look a little strange but they are fantastic at preventive blisters and corns on serious runners. Highly recommend you give them a try. You will be hooked!

GPS Receiver With Heart Rate Monitor

This inspiring gadget will monitor heart rate, pace, distance traveled and maps the route in Google Earth.

i-Pod arm band

Everyone loves listening to music when they run and putting your i-pod in your pocket is just too risky... screen breakages cost $$$. Get them this protective, waterproof arm band so they can run freely while listening to the favorite songs

Runner's journal and logbook

Recording progress and tracking improvement is the key to success for any serious runner. By keeping a running journal they can see little changes as they happen. This can be really motivated especially for distance runners.

Ice jiggler pants

These amazing pants provide compression while running, helping to increase blood flow to the muscles. When you finish the race add some ice pack to the specially designed pockets to help your muscles recover.

Hydration Pack

Hydration is vital for distance runners. This pack is comfortable and functional, the perfect combination.

What is your idea of the perfect gift?

Are you a runner? - of buying a gift for a runner?
