Ultimate Runner Gift Guide 2022
Kindle Paperweight e-reader – Great gift for the book reader in your life who hasn’t switched to an e-reader yet. I’ve heard so many people say they went from paper books to an e-reader or audio books (Audible) after someone kindly pressured them into it and it changed their reading life.
Amazon Audible Gift Subscription – I listen to audio books while running, walking my dog and driving. If you listen to podcasts, you’ll love listening to books on Audible.
Layla is Colleen Hoover’s best book – Get it on paperback if Kindle & Audiobooks aren’t your thing.
Foot Spa with Heat and Massage – this home foot bath has thousands of 5 star reviews and is on sale for Black Friday right now.
Plush Mid Length Robe – I have a light silky robe to wear in the warmer months, but want a plush one to wear after showering on cold days. And even though I want a warm one, I also want it to be mid-length because it’s easier to wear while getting ready.
23 and Me DNA Health and Ancestry test – This is 50% off right now! I did it years ago and they keep updating the info. Every time DNA tests come up in conversation someone mentions they want to do a dna test like this, but haven’t yet.
Weighted Stuffed Animal – Plush 5lb. stuffed bunny to help naturally reduce anxiety and help you relax.
Muscle Recovery Bath Soak – a quality epsom salts bath is amazing for quicker recovery and to just relax for runners and non-runners alike.
Heating Pad for Neck & Shoulders – I’m obsessed with heating pads and love that this one is made for your neck and shoulders.
Silk Scrunchies – These are great to prevent hair breakage and look cute. I have several and use them everyday when I want to put my hair up in a quick bun or pony tail.
Large Hair Claw Clips – these hair clips come in 2 sizes, different colors and are on sale for black Friday right now.
Deep Conditioner for Hair – this is one sale and one of the highest rated deep conditioners on Amazon. Head’s up – the bottle is small, but it’s a DEEP CONDITIONER you use once a month not daily. Depending on the length of your hair – you can use it about 3 or 4 times.
Home / Kitchen Gifts
Glass Tea Kettle – I use my tea kettle everyday in the colder months. When I got a new one a few Christmases ago – I gave my mom my old one and she uses it all the time too.

If your favorite runner doesn’t have a few pairs yet, this is going to change their view on the world. Literally.
Shokz Open Ear Headphones – I’ve bought these for family members that don’t run and they LOVED them. These are great for listening to music, podcasts, books, phone calls while taking walks or multi-tasking around the house.
Cute Garmin Smart Watch – This is a pretty fitness tracker and a smart watch that looks like a women’s watch (read: isn’t a super bulky running watch).
Women’s Seamless Athletic Running Shirt – This is a Lulu dupe I love for running on cooler days.
Colorfulkoala leggings – has the best Lululemon dupes on Amazon.
Large Tote for Gym, Running or Overnight Travel – I love a big tote bag with several pockets and a separate compartment for sweaty clothes. This is similar to the bag I take for local races because I like to have a change of clothes in my car plus other post-run essentials.
