“I love me a good gluten-free pretzel (plus hummus, duh), and these ones are excellent. I’m a huge pretzel snacker in between meals, so I had to be careful to not eat the entire bag! The sea salt flavor gives a little extra post-run kick when you need something salty!” —Caitlyn Pilkington, web editor

“My favorite running shorts just got a reflective update! At first glance you wouldn’t even realize that the pattern is anything other than a cute pattern, but a quick snap of a flash photo shows you just how reflective these shorts are. They are awesome on early morning runs or later in the evening when you want the added safety aspect of being seen.” —Dorothy Beal, TeamWR contributor and blogger at Mile Posts

Imlak’esh Organics ChargeBoss Clusters, $16

“When it comes to holiday and gifts I tend to give a lot of consumables, but I’m always on the lookout for something that’s also special. Not only does the glass jar and pretty label elevate this snack, but the actual product is so tasty and different. The clusters are made of cashews, maca powder and cacao nibs that give them a distinctive crunch and flavor of chocolate. Win, win. Everyone needs a little boost and this will make you (or the recipient) a boss!” —Nicki Miller, managing editor

Camelbak Quick Stow Chill Flask, $28

“Obsessed with this flask! I love how it’s light and collapsible, so it’s easy to take with me wherever I go. My favorite feature is that it’s insulated—so there are no water leaks!” —Fara Rosenzweig, freelance writer

Shut Up And Run by Robin Arzon, $25

“During the holidays I struggle in the motivation department. Between food, travel and keeping up with life in-between, the last thing I want to do is lace up and run—I want to nap. I got this book as an added boost to stop telling myself stories about why I can’t run and instead, spend that time actually running!” —Ashley Lauretta, freelance web editor
