Today, we are sharing our picks for the best holiday gifts for female runners to help you prepare for the 2018 gift giving season.
Top 10 Holiday Gifts for Female Runners
If you want to look trendy during your runs without breaking the bank, then look no further. These leggings come in a variety of colors and prints, which gives them a fun twist and makes “plain ole’ workout clothes” a thing of the past. With fabric that wicks away moisture and repels odor-causing bacteria, these are bound to last an active runner a long time. They even have a hidden zipper pocket near the hip!
Some women enjoy working out or running in a comfortable and supportive sports bra that they don’t always want to cover up with shirts or tanks. But finding a supportive bra that also provides modest coverage can be difficult. However, the Lululemon Walk and Train Long Line bra provides ample coverage to feel confident in. With a mesh fabric to help cool off and cross back straps that won’t slide, this sports bra is stylish but practical.
Anyone can wear compression socks to promote recovery, reduce swelling, prevent leg fatigue and lessen the appearance of varicose veins. But not all compression socks are created equally. Crazy Compression socks offer 15-20 mmhg true graduated compression -- the perfect amount to fit your needs.
Plus, they come in a variety of colors and designs which makes this such a fun gift to pick out! Grab a few for your favorite runner and use them as stocking stuffers!
The latest Fitbit Charge is now available and with new and improved features for the active woman in your life. There are so many benefits including:
- sleep tracking
- calorie counter
- female health tracking
- heart rate monitor
This waterproof device is designed to help any runner reach their goals and keep up with their progress. And now with a touchscreen and sleeker, more comfortable wristband, it’s sure to be a hit this holiday season.
If you’re a runner, then you know that training with headphones can be a hassle and sometimes even a hazard -- think about all the times you’ve had to stop to untangle your headphones! With the Bose SoundSport wireless earbuds, get ready to enjoy top-notch music quality as the earbuds create a gentle seal in the ear to help with comfort, music quality and stability. The design of these earbuds coupled with weather and sweat proof features provide confidence that they will stay put during training.
If you or the runner in your life enjoy longer runs (i.e. 45 minutes or longer) then a convenient hydration solution is a must-have! With the Amphipod Hydrafoam Thermal Lite bottle, runners can easily and comfortably carry their water bottle with them. This water bottle is light, has a comfortable and minimalist designed wristband and a curved bottle that conforms to the natural position of the hand. The insulated sleeve can be washed and the strap even has a zippered pocket for keys, mace, iPod, etc. This will for sure be a hit with any runner!
When it comes to headbands, style isn’t the only factor to consider. The best headband will always be the one that slips the least. The Sentia Athletics No Slip-Headbands comes in simple colors, but with a silicone grip on the inside, this headband will never slip off - just read the reviews! It’s easy to wash and perfect for women on the go. Plus with an affordable price point, it makes for one of the best stocking stuffers.
Some runners prefer a loose fit tank or tee that is not constricting but which is also lightweight. Senita’s Athletics has some of the cutest tanks in a variety of styles and colors. From open backs to open sides and tops that have a hidden pocket for your phone, their tanks are some of the cutest and most practical on the market. You’re guaranteed to find something your favorite runner will love!
9. Foam Rollers
Foam rollers are all the rage for runners and athletes because they help with muscle recovery, flexibility and pain relief. TriggerPoint Grid makes an affordable foam roller that has a large fan base of users and their rollers last for many years. While some runners may not feel they need this, it is wise to begin using foam rollers as soon as possible to help prolong an athlete’s abilities as well as prevent future aches and muscle or joint damage later on.
10. A Spa Day!
This is one that all women will love no matter what, but especially runners. Whether it is a gift card for a pedicure or a day of spa treatments or a message, the runner in your life will be very grateful for such a wonderful treat. What more could a person with some sore muscles or tired feet ask for?
