FuelBelt Gel Ready Race Number Belt

Available in four different colors this race number belt is a great gift for any runner who takes part in races, whether they are competitive or just in it for fun!

Ten loops to hold gel packets. So running low on energy (bonking!) is unlikely to be an issue. Available in Hibiscus Pink, Kiwi Green, Surf Blue, Black, TNT Purple. One size fits all.

Buff Original Headwear

So much more than just something to cover your head! The Buff has almost infinite uses. It's a versatile fabric tube that can be worn as a headband, neck gaiter, balaclava, cap, wristband or scrunchy, or use it to protect your glasses or mobile phone. The polyester microfiber fabric wicks moisture and insulates against heat and cold. Machine washable and lasts for ages.

I personally have four different buffs, and I'm sure I will have more in the future, they make a great gift because even if the recipient already has one, the design you pick from the range of nearly 200 is unlikely to be the same!

Light My Fire Titanium Spork

Everyone should own a spork (Spoon Fork), they are the most versatile eating implement you can buy, and while a plastic one works perfectly well, nothing can beat the durability of titanium which feels so nice in the hand.

I've had plastic and titanium sporks and one lives in my car, another in my desk at work, and several in the utensil draw in the kitchen, I've eaten noodles, cooked a full-english breakfast and make tea and coffee, and enjoyed hundreds of back-country meals with one. Fantastic.

Wild Sports Anywhere Table Tennis Set

I bought one of these for my kids when we went on holiday earlier this year, it was an impulse purchase and I didn't really have high expectations. However, on trying it out on the dining room table we found it works incredibly well, even if the table is a little smaller than a full size! Kids and Adults alike have played this for hours and the paddles and balls have all stood up to some abuse without any wear or tear, all in all a great simple good value gift.

Ozeri 4x3motion Digital Pocket 3D Pedometer with Tri-Axis Technology

Pedometers make great gifts, not just for those starting out on an exercise routine, but also for serious athletes who want to record their runs using a powerful yet simple device.

This version, on sale at under half list prices uses the latests generation technology to record movement in a much more accurate way then previously possible, meaning the device can be kept in the pocket and doesn't have to kept horizontal by being clipped to a belt.

The 4x3motion Digital Pedometer records your steps, distance, average speed, calories burned, and time spent exercising, and displays your data on a new bright LCD with a night view backlight.

The Golf Swing's Simple Secret - A revolutionary method proved for the weekend golfer to significantly improve distance and accuracy from day one

With 66 reviews of 4 or more stars, the reviews on Amazon speak for themselves, this book is highly recommended by many many golfers who have benefited from the 25 year study into the Golf Swing that the auther has made.

Tennis Ball Saver

The tennis playing recipient of this gift will be able to keep his balls fresh and working just like new for much much longer. It works by storing the balls under pressure, which ensures that the pressure inside the balls is retained, and over time will improve. A great gadget that will save your tennis player some money very quickly!

Aerobie Pro Flying Ring

The modern, high tech version of the Frisbee, holder of the world record (1333ft) for a thrown object. 4.8 out of 5 on Amazon and a great inexpenive gift for someone who likes energetic activities. Great fun for all the family and good for teaching hand eye coordination skills as well!

Morakniv Companion MG Carbon Steel Mora of Sweden

It's hard to belief that you can get something of this quality and usefullness for under $20 but it's true! While I'm sure every hunter would love a handmade and unique hunting knife, that's the sort of thing that stays home and is never used. This knife however is designed to be used for all manner of hunting and bushcraft chores.

Bike Peddler Take A Look Cycling Eyeglass Mirror

An incredible 250 five start Amazon reviews makes this the top rated mirror for cyclists, it mounts to their helmet and allows the wear to see what is coming up behind them, warning of approaching vehicles and making it easy to check before turning across lanes.
