I’m a big fan of holding out til holidays to ask for big ticket items. Then again, I love a stocking stuffer, too.
Ok, I just like presents.
Correction: I like nicely wrapped presents.
And I LOVE Christmastime. It’s my favorite time of year. Everything is prettier in lights, we always get a REAL Christmas tree, gift-giving is almost as fun as gift-getting, and I love getting Christmas cards in the mail. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.
Speaking of gift-giving, some of you might be wondering what to get the lady runner/athlete in your life. Here are a list of my favorite things. Click on the image to go to the website.
Note: Do not attempt to buy workout stuff for someone who doesn’t already workout or who has not expressed a desire to own workout stuff. This could be extremely insulting and ruin your holidays. Trust me.
1. Garmin Forerunner 10: $129.99
It’s got all the basics for half the cost: pace, time, distance, personal bests. It’s great if you don’t need/want all the stats. And it’s pretty and small!
2. I am in love with my Saucony Kinvara 3s: $100.00
Hello, gorgeous! They’re a great lightweight shoe for those of us with higher arches and, again, SO PRETTY!
3. Race Bib Coasters: $22.00
What a creative way to commemorate a great run! What will those geniuses over at Etsy think of next?!
4. Sugoi Women’s MidZero Tight: $55.95
AKA my favorite winter running tight EVER. Seriously, these are cozy and they breathe. I don’t know how they did that, but they did.
5. lululemon What the Fluff Vest: $158.00
I’m a HUGE fan of a running vest. My arms get freakishly warm in the winter. This one is especially warm and, duh, pretty to boot!
6. Erica Sara Designs Love Note: $78-98
Write your friend/running buddy/wife/daughter a note to take with her on her runs. Erica will engrave it for you (in your handwriting) and put it on a beautiful charm. A good luck charm for the lady runner in your life.
7. Oiselle Indigo Melange Arm Warmers$32.00
The perfect way to stay warm but have options. And they’re so on-trend!
8. Cross-training Gift Cards: The sky’s the limit!
It’s cold out there and sometimes even the most dedicated runners want to head indoors! Plus, it’s a great way to stay in good physical health. These are my favorite places to sweat in NYC, in case you are my Secret Santa
There are so many other fabulous gifts out there, if you run into a problem and need a woman’s advice, feel free to holler at me. I love to shop. If all else fails, a day at the spa is always in order.
Get going, everyone! Only a few more hours til Cyber Monday is over.
Now go out and run!
