Gifts For Runners: Clothing Accessories
^Click Arrow Above To Listen
This is the third (and last one before the end of the year) installment of our “Gifts for Runners” series. Because sometimes it’s hard to know what to get the runner on your shopping list, to help you out, I’ve written an eBook that you can get for free. It’s called “Gifts For Runners – More Than 50 Unique and Creative Gifts For The Runner In Your Life” It’s written in an easy to read, relaxed style in a quick downloading .pdf file format. It’s yours at absolutely no cost, just by clicking on the link above or filling in the web form just below. It’s also available via a link in the sidebar under “Pages” if you know someone that wants to download it later.
In the meantime, here’s an excerpt with clothing accessory items that make great gifts for runners….the links are active, and they should all be formatted to open in a new window. So you can click on them to see pictures or get more information or even go ahead and order online and not lose your place on this page…
- Running Socks – The double-layer socks are great for preventing blisters. I wasn’t sure about these socks at first, but with a blister-free guarantee, how could I go wrong? I tried them out, and they were right! Not even when breaking in a new pair of running shoes did I get blisters. So keep these in mind as a great gift idea for your runner.
- Running Hats – I wear a running hat all the time. Any generic visor or baseball cap will perform the basic function of keeping the sweat out of my eyes, as well as blocking the glare. In the summer, it’s relief from the hot sun baking the top of my skull.
However, a cap designed specially for runners is even better, as the style and fabric is specifically designed to vent out the heat and wick away the moisture from sweat. Even in the winter, I can usually still wear my running hat most of the time, but there are days when it’s cold enough on my ears that I need a skull cap or fleece hat.
Gloves – I like to wear the stretchy knit gloves. They are kind of a one-size-stretches-to-fit-most thing. We just got some on sale a few weeks ago for $1.99 per 2 pair of them. We stocked up. They come in all sorts of colors, and if you lose one, who cares. At $1.00 or $2.00 a pair, it doesn’t hurt so bad to lose them. But some runners need warmer gloves, and there are many styles to choose from.
Sweatband/Headband/Wrist Bands – There are so many different styles and colors, it’s hard to choose. They have the elastic band style; they have Velcro closures; they even have one called the Sweat Gutr Headband, which I haven’t seen in person or used, but looks like it channels the sweat from your brow away from your eyes – like a rain gutter. Hmmm. I’d be curious as to how well that one works. If you’ve tried it, let me know.
Neck Wraps/Warmers – I like the kind by Turtle Fur. I use it as a neck warmer when I’m running in windy and cold conditions, but I also use it to tuck into my running tights over my belly. It’s important for anyone (but especially an outdoor athlete) to avoid losing too much heat from the body’s core, so that’s one of my strategies to keep one of the most important spots warm.
If you still need more ideas, and haven’t downloaded your copy of the free eBook yet, you’ll want to do so post-haste. Just click here right now – “Gifts For Runners – More Than 50 Unique and Creative Gifts For The Runner In Your Life” The price is right anyway…
