A safe bet is to give something that is compatible with the hobbies and hobbies of the person being gifted. We have already compiled such lists before, so you can use them as sources of ideas too – once, two, three.
Reminder number two: we have a Telegram channel, in which we put our heart, soul and some calories. Be sure to check it out if you like to read about running in your favorite messenger.
So, here are the good things that a runner will (with a high degree of likelihood) enjoy.
For those who love to run, travel and collect races from other cities and countries. Such a map will become an additional motivator in setting goals and fixing results and achievements.
You can purchase a scratch card on which you need to paint over the countries in which you managed to run, or special version for runners showing interesting marathons of the world.
High-quality thermal underwear actively removes moisture from the skin during sports, keeping the body warm. Made from synthetics or merino wool. Whichever option you choose, running on the street in winter will not be scary with it.
They will help you combine business with pleasure, and jogging to your favorite tracks will give you even more endorphins and a good mood. What’s more, music can help reduce the level of perceived stress, which is especially beneficial during heavy interval training.
Wireless headphones are a cool gift for those who are tired of unraveling all those tangle of wires every time.
Sensory Running Gloves
A handy piece for running in cold weather. These are lightweight but warm gloves, equipped with a special insert on the index finger to interact with the smartphone’s touchscreen. The wearer of these gloves no longer has to take them off to switch music or answer a call.
Hat with built-in flashlight
This hat is the perfect gift for those who want to run in the dark in low light conditions. The flashlight is equipped with several brightness modes and can be easily charged via USB cable.
Registration for the race
Almost every runner has his own “dream race” – maybe it’s an ultramarathon in the mountains, or a marathon in another city or even a country. Or maybe it’s a fun fancy dress start, or a bright trail, or a wine / beer marathon. This is usually easy to figure out – we love talking about running so much!
And then it’s up to the little: buy a “ticket”, prepare and run.
Unusual running gear
Of course, we all know that jogging clothing should be functional and comfortable, but sometimes we forget the important thing – it should be beautiful and pleasing to the eye! Bright colors, non-trivial print, a life motto, or maybe a slogan that will emphasize the sense of humor and personality of the runner?
There are many options.
Protective cream from the cold, lip balm in winter weather, high spf sunscreen, ointment to protect against chafing – it turns out that here you can pick up a runner’s entire cosmetic bag (by the way, we wrote about this).
Waterproof sports cameras are specially designed for shooting on the move and in extreme conditions. A great opportunity to capture vivid footage of an exciting adventure like a mountain trail or the Boston Marathon.
Percussion Massager – a technological device designed for recovery after training and competition. It will come in handy for everyone who is actively exercising and often encounters muscle congestion.
It will help you dry wet sneakers quickly and safely and is suitable for the most delicate shoes and fabrics without destroying the sealed seams. The main feature of such dryers is in ultraviolet radiation: it is the combination of heat and ultraviolet radiation that prevents the appearance of unpleasant odors and bacteria.
Backpack or vest for running
A cool solution for those who carry everything with them. It will come in handy both in the city – for example, for commuting (combining jogging with the road to work), and outside the city – during long training sessions and competitions, when you don’t want or can’t look for shops along the way.
Running backpacks are very lightweight and technologically advanced, equipped with a ventilation system and fit snugly to the body so as not to cause discomfort during the process.
The running vest is a minimalist version of the backpack. It can hold several water bottles and snacks, which are much needed for long distances and competitions.
Sports nutrition helps to solve many problems: quickly replenish reserves in training and competitions, restore water-salt balance, accelerate muscle recovery and regeneration due to the rapid supply of nutrients.
We also talked in detail about who will benefit from the sports food and who should not buy it.
A beautiful selection of the most picturesque and unusual races. Here you will find the best running routes in the world – from short city runs to marathons and challenging mountain ultramarathons, plus 150 more runs around the world for people of all skill levels.
A beautiful and stylish gift that can change the life of the owner.
