Sometimes it is hard to find the perfect gift for someone. I think I’m really easy to buy for, and I believe, most runners/fitness enthusiast are easy to shop for. We like simple things that work and make our fitness lifestyle simpler.
To make it really simple for you to shop this holiday, I’ve compiled this short list of my top 5 awesome gifts to give to your fitness enthusiast. I suggest buying all the gifts in this post and making it one nice big gift basket, or selecting a few and inserting a few surprises, like the Hickies inside the socks, or inside the Armband, or the Nuun Tablets rolls inside the vest, for that added surprise. Anyways, enjoy this post.
Armpocket makes one of the best running armbands. Whether you are looking for an armband to help you carry all your running/training items or to help you get through your race, Armpocket makes the perfect gift for your training/running buddy. Armpocket Armbands come in really great colors and available for most phones, including the iPhone 6+ and Samsung Galaxy S6. If wearing an armband is too much of discomfort, Armpocket has recently launched a new product called the Wrister, which is an armband you wear on the comfort of your wrist for easier access. Be on the lookout for my review next week.
Armpocket Armbands range from $29.95 to $49.95.

Nuun Active and Plus for Nuun are currently two of my favorite Nuun products. I’ve used them both, and love them together. As a marathon runner, I only use Nuun during my training and races. It sits well on my stomach and keeps me hydrated and replenished. I love how easy it is to carry especially during a race. I carry some tablets with me, to mix in a bottle with water, during my race. Plus for Nuun came in handy during the Berlin Marathon this year. It helped me fuel faster and kept me strong during my race.
Nuun Active retails for $7.00 and Plus for Nuun retails for $6.99.

Nike Women Aeroloft 800 Running Vest
This awesome, ligthweight vest, is the perfect gift for the runner/fitness enthusiast that loves to play outdoors. It’s light and with 800-fill goose down to keep you nice and warm. The Volt color is so far my favorite, it’s perfect for those evening runs, where you’ll want to be seen. If being seen is necessary, their newest Aeroloft Flash collection is the one you need, with its reflective print to keep you visible and warm, when running in the dark.
The Aeroloft 800 Running Vest retails for $180. The Aeroloft Flash retails for $280

Last, but certainly not least, this really amazing product, that I have yet to try, but do have it on my wish list and have heard so much positive review about them. Hickies! is the “no-tie, flexible and customizable responsive lacing system.” I must say, if Hickies keep me from tying or double knotting my shoe laces during a race, I am sold. I love how clean and neat they look and the awesome colors they come in. Can’t wait to try them.
Hickies range from $14.99 to $17.99.
