Christmas gifts I would love under my tree

I’m addicted to running.  Therefore, I think I’m pretty easy to buy presents for…anything running related and I’m happy.  At the Running show at the weekend i could have spent so much money! And they had a Ronhill sale on…dangerous! These are some of the things I’ve spotted lately that I would like in my Christmas stocking…

1. Charming Rewards bracelets.

Charming RewardsI like the leather bracelets and would have mine similar to the one above.  This would be a great gift for someone who has recently completed their first marathon/half/10k/5k.

2. The Runner’s Wall medal hanger.

trailRunningI’ve seen lots of different styles of medal hanger, but I love this Trail Running version.
I also love this for London marathon medals…
If only I knew that I would get a place more than once!

3. Wrist ID bracelet.

4. Eat & Run.

I’m a sucker for any running book and this one is all about ultramarathons…bonus!

5. Ronhill Aspiration Connect shorts
I lived in my Ronhill shorts all Summer long after receiving them from Women’s Running. My pair are blue. I would like the purple pair to complete my set!

6. A box of Maxifuel Viperboost bars

So nice. So addictive!

6. A 26.2 Car bumper sticker

26point2Because I’ve done it…why shouldn’t I shout it out to other car users?!

7. A running headtorchheadtorch

I was lucky enough to borrow two headtorches from other club runners before the Dusk ’til Dawn but being as addicted to running as I am, I think it is about time I purchased one myself.

8. Bubble bath

bubbleBathYou can never have too much bubble bath as a runner.  It’s what Sunday afternoons were meant for after getting back from your long run!

9. Foam roller

foamRollerMy body has been crying out for one of these since I got injured in the Summer.  I’ve made do with golf balls, tennis balls and cans of soup, but it’s just not the same!

10. A running mug

What’s on your Christmas running-themed wish list this year?!

  1. New reader here – love the Christmas suggestions. Thanks for posting the link to the wrist ID bracelet I’ve been meaning to get one for a while but couldn’t find anything suitable, sorted!

  2. Ahhh I love all of these things! In fact, my parents have gotten me a Trigger Point foam roller for Christmas. I got it early due to marathon training and I love it. I can’t use my normal foam roller anymore as I just don’t find it as good.
    I love running books as well. So obsessed. I had the Eat and Run as an audiobook and attempted to listen to it but I found it quite irritating – I don’t think I’m a huge fan of Scott Jurek. But maybe it was because of the guy’s voice who read the book on the audio? Who knows! I think I need to actually read the book rather than listen to it.

    1. You sound like you’re in the Christmas spirit already too! :)
      Yep, fell in love with that medal holder when I first saw it. There’s nothing for it…I’m going to have to get quick enough for a GFA place at London each year!

    1. You can definitely never have too many running socks. When they start getting thin I end up doubling them up on top of each other, but then you have to do twice as many washes!

    1. Haha! I always find it’s best to hint OBVIOUSLY. Leave notes around headed ‘This is what I want for Christmas’ with full sizes, colours and styles mentioned. Guys especially are rubbish at hints. Perhaps even hand out these notes?!
