Shipping deadlines are fast approaching, and if you’re starting to holiday shop for loved ones who love to jog, these thoughtful gifts for runners will make the task so much simpler. After all, the right running gear—like a durable pair of running shoes and a high-quality sports bra—can make a good run even better.
Every runner has their own particular needs and gear preferences, so we asked runners from across the country what running gifts they’ve received in the past and loved, or what they would like to receive this year. From warm-up to the post-run cool-down, below, you’ll find a wide range of options for the best gifts for runners. We included running leggings, sports bras, hydration packs, sunglasses, running socks, massage guns, fitness trackers, and snacks from Amazon, Lululemon, Therabody, Triggerpoint, Under Armour, Hyperice, Garmin, Nathan’s, Nike, and more.
Find the perfect gift to please your favorite runner friend for their birthday or the holidays and help them get their heart rate up, whether they’re aiming to complete a 5K or just hit some new P.R.s.
