Prepare your favorite runner friends for the running year ahead with these fun stocking stuffers.
Fascia Blaster Mini 1, $65
Are you aware of the role fascia (the body’s connective tissue) plays in your day-to-day and running health? It’s more important than you realize! This little device is designed to loosen adhesions in the fascia as well as improve muscle performance, nerve activity, circulation and flexibility. As a bonus, the tip can be used as a trigger-point tool to reach those pesky areas.
Athleta Performa Bikini Underwear, $16
Underwear can be an awkward choice to put into someone’s stocking, but we promise these are worth the risk. These new options are the most breathable, comfortable, barely there undergarments we’ve ever tried. Available in four colors, these are perfect for wearing under running capris or yoga pants—the subtle seam means no panty line.
Darn Tough Vermont Vertex No Show Tab Ultra-Light Cushion, $17
Socks get a bad rap as being a poor choice as a holiday gift, but hear us out. This premium option from Darn Tough will have you chucking your generic (likely overworn) pairs in the trash. These socks have a heavy look but are super light when worn. The cushion is reserved for just the right places, leaving your feet happy and blister-free no matter the conditions.
SweatWellth Lip Quench, $12.50
We are obsessed with this line of lip products. The electrolyte balm hydrates your lips, rejects the sun and protects your lips from other harmful elements. Our favorite part? The tinted colors make it look like you’re wearing lipstick. It costs more than your typical lip balm, but it’s well worth the upgrade.
The North Face Shinsky Beanie, $30
Nothing screams winter more than a comfy beanie, and this is the best one we’ve found. Perfect for throwing on after a frigid run, this stylish (and warm!) hat looked good on every woman who tried it on. It’s reversible, giving you the choice of a patchwork or solid design, and it comes in 14 awesome colors.
Base Culture Peppermint Cocoa Brownie, $2
Dietary restrictions can keep you from enjoying many holiday treats, but Base Culture is coming to the rescue. New for 2018, this Peppermint Cocoa Brownie is rich in flavor but not in the ingredients that will make you pause. The treat is Paleo-certified and non-GMO, as well as gluten-, soy- and grain-free. These are proof that real, whole ingredients can be delicious.
