1. Garmin Forerunner. This is the best watch out there- in my opinion. It has just enough bells and whistles to tell you what you need to know without overloading your brain with way too much information.

2. Feetures Socks. These are my favorite. I have yet *knock on wood* to get a blister in these socks. They are thick enough in the right spots to protect your feet, but thin enough to not take up valuable space in your shoes!

3. Nike Compression Shorts. You know my love for these shorts. Say goodbye to any weird seem chaffing!

4. Orion Mesh Leggings. I love a fun pair of workout pants. These have mesh and lattice detailing!

5. Lululemon Shorts. I have several pairs of these. There are so many fun colors to choose from. They are just a classic workout short.

6. Nike Running Vest. This vest is so light and yet so warm. I have no idea how they do it! It is the perfect layer or stand alone on those cold days.

7. Yurbuds Headphones. You probably know by now that I don’t run with wireless headphones. It’s just one more thing for me to charge, and I honestly haven’t found any that I like as much as these. I’ve used them for 4 years now.

8. Nike Visor. When sunglasses alone won’t cut it, I throw on this.

9. Nike Sunglasses. I searched for awhile for the perfect running glasses. I love how light weight these are and they don’t have any weird pressure points that could end up giving me a headache. My husband actually started stealing these from me because he liked them more than his.. and then lost him! I think I know what I better be getting in my stocking!

10. Believe Training Journal. I’ve talked about this journal before. I enjoy being able to look back on my progress … especially during those running slumps where you feel like you just aren’t progressing or you can’t run anymore.

11. Flipbelt. I have turned countless people on to these! Forget those annoying bouncing belts or those arm bands that rub. This is a game changer.

12. Sarah Marie Designs tees. I love her stuff. She has great tees, sweatshirts, and a new varsity inspired jacket that is too cute!

13. Nike Running Jacket. Another win for Nike. A thin, but warm running jacket.

14. Lululemon duffel bag. This is the perfect gym bag. Room for everything and super cute!

1. Stance Socks. My husband loves their socks. Fun, but manly, colors and patterns to go with everything. Plus, I love to steal them.

2. Garmin Fenix 3. For the athlete in your life- this watch does it all. Swim tracking, biking, and running.

3. Apple TV. We have one and love it. Makes it so easy to hook our phones up to the tv, or just watch our favorite shows.

4. Magazine Subscriptions. I love giving magazine subscriptions. I order the subscription, buy one of the magazines and attach it to something that is relevant to it. Example: order Runners World Magazine and roll it up inside a new pair of shoes!

5. Jcrew Flannel. I don’t dare usually try and buy my husband clothes- he is way too picky; but, these are alway a winner. So, every year he gets a few of these under the tree.

6. UE Boom 2 Bluetooth Speaker. We love blasting music around the house or taking it with us to a family function. This is a great one for the quality and price.

7. Apple iPhone 7 Battery Case. For the man who works from his phone 247, this battery case will help keep him from having a panic attack when his phone drops to the dreaded red zone.

8. Wireless Headphones. No guy likes wires everywhere- especially when working out.

9. Jack Black Skin Care. A classic and there is a reason for it. Men love their products.

10. Amazon Dot. We don’t have one of these, but I am going to have to change that!

11. Beer Clubs. If your guy likes/drinks beer or scotch, then give a ‘club’ gift where they send new ones for him to try every month!

12. Tile. I am sick of looking for my man’s keys every time he blames me for losing them hah So, attach this to them and you will never lose them again!
