Tuesday Topics | Holiday Gift Guide for Athletes

I am linking up with  Kookyrunner and Zenaida for Tuesday Topics, and this week and I am excited that we’re sharing gift ideas for runners/athletes this week. You know, I love a good gift guide as much as the next person, and there are always “sports items” on my own wishlist.

Without further ado, some gift ideas for your athletic friends.

1. I know a lot of runners who log their miles/workouts, so a running journal* seems pretty useful.

2. These Wrightsock* socks are my favorite double-layered anti-blister running socks.

3. I gave Jon the Mini Theragun* for his birthday and he loves it (and me, too).

4. Peloton Wall Art*. Ok, sure, this is only a gift for someone who has drunk the Peloton Kool-Aid, but there’s a ton of other motivational wall art out there. This is just an example.

5. I didn’t know how many Sweat Towels* one can go through.

6. This Matt Math Muscle Tank* makes me laugh because that’s exactly how Peloton Coach Matt Wilpers coaches his classes. Haha.

7. One can never have enough Long Sleeved Running Shirts* with thumbholes!!

8. During this time of year, CRZ Yoga Thermal Fleece Lined Leggings* with pockets (!) seem to be a necessity.

9. I’ve had my Road ID* bracelet for a few years and won’t leave the house for a run without it.

10. I also had Arm Sleeves* for a while and just recently used them a little bit more regularly and really like the flexibility they offer regarding temperature control. I am cold when I start and I get hot once I am well on my way.

11. I still don’t own a medal holder*, can you believe it?

12. I don’t use protein powder very often, but this Blender Bottle* works really well to blend everything without lumps. Works for chocolate milk, too ;)

13. I imagine these to be a great recovery tool: Foot Alignment Socks*.

14. If you like to keep an eye on your heart rate, this Heart Rate Monitor Armband* might be a good fit.

15. The Nathan’s Stealth Jacket* is an ultra-lightweight performance windbreaker and definitely something any outdoor athlete could use!

16. This Molly’s Suds Sports Wash* is my favorite.

If you’re an athlete, what would you like to find under the Christmas tree?

* #notanad, This is not a sponsored post. I have not been compensated by the brand or anyone else for linking the websites, and all items were bought with my own money.

  1. I am NOT an athlete, but I’m really hoping for a heated vest and some extra heated socks for winter walks, sledding with the kids and downhill skiing. The right kind of winter gear makes a big difference – especially for me, since I tend to run cold…ALWAYS!

    You do such a lovely job on all your gift guides, San!

  2. I love the theragun mini and use it daily. You can never go wrong with Peloton accessories.

  3. Very nice gift list! I have a medal hanger from Allied Medals and I really like it a lot. And I feel like I’m the only runner who doesn’t own a massage gun, lol

  4. Oooh bookmarking the foot alignment socks! This was so fun to read! I LOVE a gift guide.

  5. I’m intrigued by the sports wash! Sometimes I feel like I can never quite get the sweat smell out of certain clothes!

  6. Ah, I see Suzanne (a fellow plantar fasciitis sufferer) and I are on the same page- i want the foot alignment socks! I love all these gift guides, but the problem is my Christmas list is growing and growing…I’m not sure Santa is going to bring me EVERYTHING I want.

  7. I’m not usually interested in gift guides but this one is my cup of tea! There’s so much here that I want! Particularly the blender bottle, sweater, windbreaker, and arm sleeves! The arm sleeves are super clever.

  8. This is a great list for inspiration. I don’t have many runner athletes in my circle much more in my online circle. HA. But it could be useful. If I would have to choose one athletic gift…. it think it would be…apparently I can’t come up with anything… says a lot about me, right? how did it happen that I fell of the sports band wagon…

  9. These are all great ideas! I am always happy to get socks! My mom usually gives my sister and me a pair in our stockings. You can’t have too many pairs of socks, generally!

    A couple of years ago at a favorite things party, my friend gave us this belt for holding our phones. It is crazy cheap and works super well!


  10. You can never go wrong with Peloton gifts!

  11. Lots of great ideas here! I have similar towels but from another company which I love. I have the Original YogaToes but rarely use them. I wonder if those work just like the foot alignment socks? Those tights would be perfect for Winter running!

  12. I love shirts with thumb holes, too. Soo many great items on your list! I actually don’t have any runners on my shopping list but a few people who are taking their workouts much more seriously and there are some great suggestions here. Thanks so much for this and hope you are enjoying the season 😊 great to be back today!
