This weekend I shared my top picks for holiday gifts for the runners in your life. Sadly not everyone is a runner (what are they waiting for?) so of course you are probably in need of more holiday shopping ideas? Well here are my top 10 favorite things that are great for anybody — whether they are runners, couch potatoes, nerds or anything else in between.
1. Oiselle Runfinity Scarf ($22)
So I may sound like I’m obsessed with Oiselle, but it’s for good reason! They have the most incredible clothing for runners. One of my most favorite things that they just released this fall is the Runfinity Scarf:
I bought it in gray and it is my favorite scarf. It is so cozy and fits very well. I’ve been able to dress it up enough to wear it at work and also dress it down so I can wear it out on the weekends. Buy it here.
2. “The Night Circus” by Erin Morgenstern ($9)
I won this book on a giveaway over a year ago and it is still my favorite book ever.
Here is a brief synopsis:
The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.
But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway: a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them both, this is a game in which only one can be left standing. Despite the high stakes, Celia and Marco soon tumble headfirst into love, setting off a domino effect of dangerous consequences, and leaving the lives of everyone, from the performers to the patrons, hanging in the balance.
This is the perfect book for someone who loves dramas/romance/fantasy. After I finished reading it, I was so sad it was over and that I couldn’t continue to follow the characters lives. I couldn’t even start reading a book immediately afterwards because I needed to think on this book for a bit. That’s a sign of a great read. Buy it here.
3. Thorny Rose Wine ($11)
Wine is one of the hardest things to buy for others, but for any white wine drinker (or anyone who likes wine in general!), Thorny Rose is one of my favorite companies. Their wines are really good. It makes a really great gift to bring to a party as a hostess gift or as your contribution to the potluck.
Sauvignon Blanc is our favorite (we are more on the fruity end of wines). Check out their product locator map for where to buy.
4. Drink Pink Wineglass ($9)
Of course, what’s drinking wine without drinking it from a fun wine glass?
Fit Approach has launched the Drink Pink stemless wine glasses to make it a little bit more fun to drink your wine. Perfect for the pink lover in your life (ahem, this is definitely on my list!). Buy it here.
5. Scared Panda Thermal ($30)
A few weeks ago, I video’ed a Q&A with my friend Katie who founded Scared Panda with her boyfriend, Clint. They have some amazing products and one of my favorites is their new thermal:
They are based in Minneapolis so they have a lot of Twin Cities/Midwestern designs. But the shirts are fun, comfortable and hold up to many washings. Buy it here.
6. CLICK Espresso Protein (starting at $26.95)
CLICK Espresso Protein (vanilla latte) is my staple for breakfast these days. I absolutely love this stuff!
Not only does it taste awesome (seriously, no chalky taste), but it is also a more economic way to get your daily coffee in instead of jumping to Starbucks and splurging on a high calorie coffee. Buy it here.
7. Endorphin Warrior Bracelets ($20)
I was lucky enough to win a giveaway for the Endorphin Warrior bracelets a few months ago and I absolutely love mine:
This is great for any one on your list that just needs a little extra push to stay motivated and inspired towards their goal. Buy it here.
8. Harry & David Gift Basket ($39.95)
We all have that person on our list… the person who truly has everything. You go through the list of gift ideas and it just doesn’t work for them. For these people, Harry & David has some awesome gift baskets. Really, you’re probably thinking in your head.
Have you ever had their Moose Munch? Enough said.
This is a really easy way to check that person off your list and get them something that they will use and love. Trust me. Buy it here.
9. Erica Sara Designs (varies)
Erica Sara is a local runner in New York City that also has an awesome jewelry shop. She is incredibly talented and has many neat things. In fact, I bought my bridesmaid gifts from her:
She is really easy to work with and loves to come up with a unique design for your loved ones. She has a lot of awesome designs for runners and other athletes, but a lot of great things for moms, sisters, best friends, etc. Buy it here.
10. Little Black Bag membership ($29.95 or $49.95)
In the past few months, I have grown to love this site! It is SO fun. So what you do is you set up a profile, pick an item (a handbag, jewelry, household item, etc.) and the company hooks you up with a few other things. From there, you get a week to trade with other members of the site who have open bags. I got this awesome Steve Madden purse from LBB:
I think it would be a fun gift for someone that loves handbags, wallets, jewelry, nail polish, etc. but is really hard to buy for. Gifting a Little Black Bag gives them an opportunity to get exactly what they want. Buy it here.
