Holiday Gift Ideas for Runners - $25 to $50

With the holidays fast approaching, it’s time to start thinking about some gifts for the runners on your list (and maybe to drop some hints for yourself).  Here are some holiday gift ideas from $25 to $50.

Hydration Packs

Fuel  Belt 4Nathan  Waist PackA Nathan Waist Pack (left) is great for shorter runs.  If the runner on your list goes on longer runs, a Fuel Belt (right) with 4 bottles might be a good choice. 

Camelbak HyrdobakFor really long runs, a Camelbak Hydrobak, which holds about 50 oz., fits the bill.

Heart Rate Monitor

Polar  FS1A simple Heart Rate Monitor is a great gift. A basic model, like the Polar FS1, sells for about $45.  It also allows you to use the chest strap to get a heart rate readout on Polar-compatible treadmills and other exercise equipment.

Compression Socks/Sleeves

Zensah Compression SleevesCompression leg sleeves can help to reduce fatigue and speed muscle recovery.  If they can help Chris Solinsky run a 10K in under 27:00, they should be able to help the runner on your list.  Zensah is the most popular brand right now.


Green Superfeet insolesThe first thing that I do when I get new running shoes is throw out the standard insoles that came with them and replace them with a pair of Green Superfeet Insoles.

Superfeet insoles provide better cushioning, arch support, and help keep my foot from moving around inside the shoe.

The Green Superfeet insoles are for folks with medium to high arches.  Blue Superfeet insoles are designed for people with low to medium arches.  There are also Superfeet insoles designed specifically for wide feet and for women’s feet.

Seat Shield

UltraSport Seat ShieldIf the runner in your life sometimes goes to the track or a race and comes back to their car all sweaty, they might appreciate an UltraSport Seat Shield for their car.
