Here is your Ultimate Holiday Gifts for Runners List for 2020. This list includes never before seen ideas for the runner who has everything to tried and true favorites every runner loves.
To navigate the list we’ve broken it down into categories. I asked my Instagram followers what they wanted this year and the top items fell into one of these lists.

Technology Gifts for Runners:
This year the hottest most wanted holiday gift is a handheld massage gun. But head’s up – they’re selling out at many retailers. I’ll link to some of the tech gifts on every runner’s list. And here’s a quick list in case you’re just trying to get ideas…
Aftershockz Headphones – Great gift for runners because it’s a sweet present AND can help keep your fave runner safe while running or walking outside! Aftershockz headphones go over the ear – not block it – so you can hear what’s going on around you. Being alert and aware is key for runner safety.
GPS Running Watch – Is it time for an upgrade to your running watch? Check out the best new running watches:
The highest end running watch on the market right now is probably the Garmin fenix. Note the Garmin fenix 6S Watch is made for people with smaller wrists so it’s not as bulky.
And a new item on this list this year is a Vibrating Foam Roller. Take your rolling game up a notch with one that vibrates to help you loosen up extra tight spots.
And if you want to go BIG go treadmill! I got a treadmill earlier this year because I thought I was going to be locked inside and knew I’d need to run to stay sane. I went with a ProForm home treadmill that folds up like this one.

Top 3 Places to Buy Running Jewelry online:

Gifts for the Runner Who Has Everything:
Recovery is an important part of running! And if the runner in your life already has all their favorite gear – what are you supposed to get them? These post-run gift ideas will help them relax and recover after a run. They’re great ideas for anyone!
Gift Ideas for the Runner Who Have Everything:
Post-Run Relaxation Basket – with face mask, lotion, snacks, aroma therapy candles, pedicure kit…
Gift Certificate to their favorite restaurant or certificate for you to cook them a fave meal
– Fun Running Mugs or Reusable Water bottles are great for the runner who has everything. We gotta stay hydrated.
Running Clothes and Gear Gift Ideas:
If the Runner on your Holiday list is already stacked up with all the running gear they need – get them a gift card from a Running Specific Store OR their favorite Running Shoe Retailer to replace their favorite well worn items. Yes – a gift card.
Runners LOVE new running shoes and if you don’t know their favorite shoe and/or size – it’s going to be quite a challenge to figure that out from zooming into their feet on old race photos. Or if you live together – take pics of their running shoes and note the size – then you might be able to match up their favorite to buy at a local retailer or online.
Running Clothes and Gear Ideas:
Sweat Wicking Tops and Bottoms
Hats, Beanies, Visors
Compression Socks or Running Socks
