I know some really
annoying organized people who shop for stocking stuffers throughout the year. If they’re shopping and they see something that appeals to them they pick it up and save it for Christmas. I am not that person. I save my stocking stuffer shopping for the very last. Which is why, as I’m completing my own shopping, that I thought I’d share my list of Stocking Stuffers Runners will Love.

Stocking Stuffers Runners will Love
Looking for stocking stuffers for the #runner in your life? Check these out! #giftguide
Are you looking for the perfect stocking stuffers runners will love? The perfect stocking stuffer is relatively inexpensive (though not always) and small enough to fit into a Christmas stocking. Here are a few things that meet that criteria that I’d love to see in my stocking on Christmas morning!
Socks are a traditional stocking stuffer, aren’t they? Here are two of my favorite running socks. These lightweight socks from Balega ($8-$14) are thin, but still provide cushioning at the arch and heel. The Thorlo Experia ($9.50)socks are my favorites for long runs. They have great padding and even feel supportive in the arch.
Of course, I spend a lot of time wearing compression socks, especially when the weather cools off. Compression socks can help with recovery and they just look cool. There are a lot of great brands out there, but I’m currently loving Pro Compression ($40-$55 (but look for popular deals)).They have so many great patterns and colors, plus they provide just the right amount of compression.
2. Body Glide
If your runner is running more than a few miles at a time, she (or he) will appreciate Body Glide ($8). It’s a must to prevent chafing.
3. Shower Pill
The individual packages of the Shower Pill ($10 for 10) make it a great stocking stuffer! You can even buy a box, fill a few runners’ stockings and save a couple for yourself!
4. Nuun Hydration
Most runners would be very happy to see a few tubes of Nuun Hydration ($24) in their stocking. This box of four leaves one left over for, um, Santa!
5. Vega Recovery Accelerator
Vega Recovery Accelerator ($2.50) is my favorite recovery drink. I usually buy it by the tub, but these individual packets make it a great stocking stuffer!
6. Nathan Insulated Flask
7. Knuckle Lights
I use my original Knuckle Lights ($40) for more than just running because they are so bright and easy to hold. I even used them during my Ragnar relay! You can select the original version, which uses a couple batteries or Rechargeable Knuckle Lights ($60)!
8. Pepper Spray
I actually don’t need the Sabre Pink Pepper Spray ($12) in my stocking because I bought it myself not too long ago! It’s made for runners with an adjustable hand strap to make it easier to carry.
Here are some great ideas for stocking stuffers runners will love! #running #Christmas
9. Runner’s Headlamp
For a few more dollars you can get the rechargeable Neutron Fire RX ($55).It provides 160 lumens of bright light, plus Red/Blue/Green side strobes.
10. Momentum Jewelry Motivate Wrap
Yes, Momentum Jewelry was on my Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide for Runners but they also make a great stocking stuffers runners will love. Whether you choose the Motivate Wrap, a Necklace, Footnote, or Sparklet, this jewelry makes a great gift. You can choose from the many motivational quotes, or you can create your own. ($10-$33)
11. Gift Card
Finally, when in doubt, give a gift card! Here are some of the favorites I wouldn’t mind seeing in my stocking.
Since my favorite skirts won’t fit in my stocking, I’d be happy to find a Skirt Sports gift card there instead.
If your runner loves to listen to music while they run, iTunes cards are always a popular choice.
A gift card from Road Runner Sports is sure to please any runner.
When in doubt, Amazon gift cards are always a winner, since you can purchase almost anything.
Are you finished with your holiday shopping? What would you like to find in your stocking?
