Top 10 Christmas Gifts For Him

05-Dec-18

By James Eacott

It’s that time of year again. #BlackFriday, #CyberMonday and #GoNutsWednesday are all behind us. But you still don’t have a present for your trail running significant other.

Queue panic-stations as we trawl Amazon and Ebay for last minute gifts.

But hold-fire.

We’ve got you covered. These 10 gifts are all you need to make your man happy:

1. Jacket

Make sure he keeps warm as he bravely tackles the elements with a quality jacket, such as the Rab Microlight Summit or this one from Inov-8.

2. Base layers

But a jacket is quite an investment. Maybe you’re in a new relationship and don’t want to appear too eager. If that’s the case, a base layer from Craft or Rohan might be better.

3. Hydration pack

Has that ripped, manky pack he insists on wearing to carry his bottles and food had its day? Could be time for a new one. We tested 8 of the best for those in the market.

4. Underwear

What do they say about sexy underwear? It’s a present for you more than him?! Send his pulse racing and mind crazy with these lovely garments.

5. Bites and nibbles

Bars, gels and recovery shakes always go down well. Literally. We tested a batch of Purition shakes earlier this year which we awarded a ‘Best Buy’.

6. Watch

For the guy who has it all, and if you’re really ready to say a big “I love you” to your trail running man, how about a Garmin Fenix 5S? Can’t get much better than that.

7. Coach services

Invest in a run coach. Granted, this is not your typical gift, but a good one if you’re hoping to keep him out the house for longer. A run coach will give him motivation, accountability and take him on a step towards his 2019 goals. Get in touch for coach contact details.

8. Race entry

If you’re really sick of him, then why not buy him a race entry? And we’re not talking about a local 50k. Give yourself a proper break and send him to Nepal, Costa Rica or Morocco.

9. Socks

Alternatively, if you’re only ‘mildly fond’ of the chap and might prefer to save your pennies for your own adventure, a pair of socks still says, “I like you”. Sometimes, that’s enough. Want to a notch higher? How about some socks infused with copper. Steady now.

10. Books

Inspire him with stories from a good book, like this one The Mountains Are Calling, by Jonny Muir.
