Who’s excited for the holidays?!?!? I am! And I want to share the Top 10 Best Holiday Gifts for Runners: 2020 Edition because the holidays are right around the corner and it’s time to get shopping (online shopping)!

The products I’ve listed I’ve seen over and over again. These gifts are the newest, latest, trendiest…and the best, that all runners have (most likely) seen and want.

I personally have most of the things on this list and can say that I love them and use them all the time!!

1. Foam Roller Set – All in One Giftable Box

Ah, yes. Right after runs this is a perfect way to recover. For me, having a foam roller and different objects (like balls) is a must, and it’s something I even travel with! Gifting this Giftable Box is a perfect idea.

2. SUUNTO Running Watch

“When talking about training or racing tools for any adventure or endurance sport, the first thing I consider is durability, because it actually gives you the chance to just focus on what you need to do”.

Mauricio Méndez Cruz, Suunto triathlete and Xterra World Champion.

Yup. This watch is awesome. If a runner you know doesn’t have this watch, than this is the perfect gift! A watch is like the extension of a runner.

3. GoPro HERO9 Black – Waterproof Action Camera

I love using my GoPro for my adventures, and then showing the videos to my friends and family. This particular GoPro is the newest one out there. It’s perfect for big and exciting adventures, and perfect for your everyday intervals and trainings.

Here’s a video that I used a GoPro with:

4. Hyperice Hypervolt Percussion Massage Device

Just like the foam roller, a perfect gift for after (or before) running, but this particular massage device has been a big trend this year.

5. Runner’s World How to Make Yourself Poop: And 999 Other Tips All Runners Should Know

Hahaha, I feel like this one of those ultra running jokes that only ultra runners would get, so, yeah, this is a great gift!

6. Training for the Uphill Athlete: A Manual for Mountain Runners and Ski Mountaineers

I love this book. This book is packed with so much information, and it’s written by a few different athletes including, Kilian Jornet. Definitely recommend this book as a gift!

7. Above the Clouds: How I Carved My Own Path to the Top of the World

This book is also written by Kilian Jornet, but it’s more of memoir of who he is, and all the adventures he’s been on. I also recommend this book for inspiration or to inspire a friend!

8. The Runner’s World Vegetarian Cookbook: 150 Delicious and Nutritious Meatless Recipes to Fuel Your Every Step

A great book for vegetarian athletes… or athletes that you are trying to turn into vegetarians!

9. Breathable Running Face Mask

During this practical era, it’s important to wear a mask…even runners. You might not be wearing during your runs, but if you’re racing it’s required (at least in my part of the world). Having a dedicated running mask is a really good idea, but this isn’t just any type of running mask… this is a Mesh Dot Breathable Outdoor Riding Running Face Mask. It’s been specially designed for runners!

10. Salomon Advanced Skin 12 Set Unisex Trail Running Vest Backpack, Black

Salomon vests are the best. They are the vest that I recommend for any runner. They are perfect for any type of adventure or race!

  1. As a distance runner, I would love ALL of these gifts! I’ve been wanting to try that percussion massager for a while; my hamstrings get super tight after a long run. Great list!
