In an effort to bring back the Christmas stocking, I compiled a list of $30 and under gifts for the runner!
1. Handheld Water Bottle
Common brands include: Nathan and Camelback. Prices range from $10 - $25. You can buy them anywhere from Marshalls to a Running Store.
2. Running Belts
I hate buying socks, it's one of those things I just hate to spend money on so when I get them, I am thrilled!
4. Arm warmers
These are perfect for the Spring and Fall when your just not quite sure how whether to wear a long sleeve or short sleeve! Arm warmers come in various styles and range from $20-$30.
This also allows for your runner to try a plethora of things without feelig guilty for having spent $$$ on items she/he may not like.
About $2 per item.
My favorites are GU Energy Espresso Gel and Sports Beans.
6. Subscription to a running magazine
Like Runners World, Trail Running, Women's Running and Running Times. 6 - 12 issues $10 - $20.
7. Specifically for the ladies, a certificate for a pedicure... awesome for a post-race indulgence! Our toes take a beating during training! $25-$50
Anything in particular you'd like to see in your stocking this year?
