10 Running Christmas Gifts for Her


Last updated: 16-Aug-18

By Alice Morrison

Dear Santa, please can you bring me the gifts listed below. I will admit that I have not been a very good runner this year. I have indulged in too few long runs and too many mince pies, even in August which is not traditional mince pie season.

However, I do believe that if you were to deliver the items below down my chimney (I have one and it is clean), that would all change for 2018.

Please know I will be saving one mince pie for you, and a massive carrot (not a Camberwell one because that would be wrong) for Rudolf.

Happy Christmas, Alice.

10. Zero Gravity Crop Leggings from Sweaty Betty

The Zero Gravity Crop leggins are pretty and functional and will motivate me to get out there of a morning. They match super well with the Breeze Short Sleeve Tee too.

9. Nathan Vaporairess running pack

I would love to have a go at this Nathan Vaporairess running pack. I haven’t used a full vest style backpack before and I think it would be very comfortable and ease down on the chafing.

8. 2Toms anti-chafe gear

On the subject of chafing… 2Toms have some good stocking fillers including some anti-chafe gear. I am not saying I am smelly but their sports-specific detergent IS very effective when it comes to a pile of stinking socks.

7. Running socks

Socks you say? I love a good sock. Any of the socks mentioned here would elicit squeals of glee when that present was opened.

6. The North Face beanie

My head will have to be kept warm for those runs round the Pentlands in December, so a beanie is needed, and not just any beanie but a white The North Face beanie.

5. Suunto Ambit 3 watch

I would be very happy, nay ecstatic, with any Suunto watch, Santa, but I think this one would best suit me at the moment. I want to make some movies and not get too lost in the desert so the GPS will come in handy. Read the review of the Suunto Ambit Peak 3 watch here.

4. Jo Malone cologne

This is more for after the run. It is important to feel human again and nothing does that quite as well as a squish of Jo Malone

3. Oakleys sunglasses

A pair of Oakleys is a classic way to show you care. These ones are great for on the trail and off.

2. Adidas LS Primeknit top for women

The Adidas Women’s LS Primeknit Top is a great colour and the fabric looks really comfortable. I think this would get me out of bed and smiling for that early trot.

1. Mountain Hardwear jacket

It’s winter. It’s cold, and then it’s hot when you are running, and then when you stop it is even colder. A cover up layer to get me home is the thing I crave the most, so, Santa, if you are listening….
