Top 10 Gifts For the Runner in Your Life - 2014

Here is my annual top ten list of gifts for runners. For even more ideas don't forget to take a look at my Fit Favorites Shop. Lots of great gift ideas for that runner in your life!

1. Running ornaments:
My friend and I designed these ceramic ornaments that we are selling on our Etsy website so of course I think they are great but any runner would love a running specific ornament! Great for stocking stuffers and we are also donating 10% of all ornament sales to a local Crisis Nursery.

2. Stay hydrated:
It's so important for athletes to stay hydrated during the day even when not working out. Do it in style with one of these beautiful hand painted textile collection water bottles from S'well.

3. Runner's Read:
Ready to Run: Unlocking Your Potential to Run Naturally: A must read for runners, this book will help your runner empower themselves against injuries and improve performance.

4. Running Top: 
Runners can always use another wicking long sleeve top for winter. Make your gift a bit more unique with a fun print!

5. Gloves: 
Running specific gloves will keep your runner warm but not overheated with special breathable fabric like the pretty Under Armour Cold Gear Infared Gloves shown below.  The Torch LED Gloves have a cool added feature with an integrated LED light for added safety.

6. Great Bag:
Runners never splurge on bags for themselves but they always come in handy!
Nike C72 Legend 2.0 Bag

7. Pain Relief:
Doctor Hoy's Pain Relief Gel  comes highly recommended as an all-natural pain reliever that can soothe your runners joints, muscles or feet.

8. Take Care of Yourself: 
The 3Q MG-F18 Foot Massager features shiatsu massage, kneading massage, air pressure and heating all in one ultimate foot massage unitWith great reviews, your runner will kiss you for this one!

9. Pretty Pants: 
Tights are a must in winter and while most female runners have a basic black pair its always fun to get a pretty color or printed pair. (Even more styles in the Fit Favorites Shop tab above)

                                        Illusion3 Leggings               Animal Print Leggings              

10. Arm Warmers: 
One of my favorite running accessories although I love the fact that I can use them on the bike as well!
