Have you finished your holiday shopping?  Do you have all the stockings stuffed and presents under the tree?  I wish I could say I do, but I have hardly done any shopping…and I’m running out of time!  I seem to be even more last-minute than usual!

For those who can relate, I thought it would be helpful to share a list of a few last-minute gift ideas for runners.  The good thing is that runners are pretty easy to shop for (or maybe I’m just easy to please!) so these 5 gifts would be greatly appreciated by the runner in your life!

I’m linking up with MarciaPatty, and Erika for Tuesdays on the Run, DebbieLora, and Rachel for the Running Coaches Corner and  Running on Happy and Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday 5 2.0!

5 Great Last-Minute Gift Ideas for Runners

Fitness Studio Gift Card

If your runner friend is like me, they like to do other kinds of workouts too!  A gift card to a local fitness studio would be a great idea for the holiday!  There are so many great studios out there these days for yoga, barre, spinning, you name it, and it’s pretty easy to pick up a gift card to their favorite store online.  Need a recommendation for a yoga studio?  Check out CorePower Yoga – I was able to check out their studio last year and had a great experience!

Tabio Socks

Tabio Socks great on a cold run!

Runners are always looking for quality socks so they’d be happy to receive a pair to add to the collection!  I’ve been able to try the new Tabio Signature Run Toe Socks as a SweatPink Ambassador.  I’ve worn them on a couple of my runs and they are great quality.  If you’re more conventional when it comes to socks, they also have regular Signature Run Socks worth checking out.

BUFF Headgear

Do you own any BUFF gear?  They are such a great brand, and I’ve reviewed them a few times on the blog – Merino Wool, UV Reflective Half, and Pack Run Cap.  Now that we’re approaching the winter season, you can check out their HUGE selection of multifunctional headgear, balaclavas, neckwarmers, and hoodies to help keep you warm while on the run.  The Original, Merino Wool and Thermonet product lines are perfect for this time of year!

StrideBox Subscription

This past year I’ve been receiving the StrideBox each month and I love it!  Each box has a wide variety of sample-sized products to test out on the run such as energy gels, salt sticks, snack bars, sports detergent, and so much more. They also include running workouts from some of your favorite running bloggers and healthy recipe ideas.  I used to not get the whole “subscription box” trend, but the StrideBox is great!

For a great last-minute gift, you can get your running buddy a 1 month, 3 month, or 6 month gift subscription to StrideBox!   I have had so many cool products I’ve been able to try and continue to purchase.  It’s perfect for the runner who likes to try everything!


I have been running with a SPIBelt since I purchased one at the Rock ‘n Roll Seattle Expo earlier this year.  I use the belt to carry my cell phone and keys with me while on the run.  I love that the belt stays in place and can help me look a little more fashionable out on the trail!

Runners always need a smart way to carry their gear while running – so consider checking out one of the many varieties of SPIBelts online!  They have SPIBelts with larger pockets, extra pockets, and extra space to hold your water and gels.  And again – so many colors and designs to choose from!

Are you still doing any last-minute shopping?  What would you love to receive under the tree this year?
