100+ runners shared what they really want for Christmas

This list of best gift ideas for runners — as shared by runners! — will keep your favorite runner running happy! Number one pick? SOCKS! 

I’ve shared multiple gift guides for runners this year and in previous years – you can see them all here. And one year, after I put up the last gift guide, I asked my Instagram followers (lots of runners!) what they really wanted for Christmas each year and I got over 100 responses. I started to see some common themes and I thought it’d be helpful for people shopping for runners. And, you runners can send it to your loved ones to make shopping for you a little easier. If you want gift ideas for runners that are a little more unique, see this post. And to see all of my personal must-haves for running, see this gift guide.

What runners actually want for Christmas

Below are the top picks directly from the 100+ runners who shared what they want. As someone who has run over 50 races, including the 2018 Boston Marathon, the 2019 Boston Marathon and over 20 half marathons, I completely agree with all of these suggestions. My personal favorite picks for each idea are linked below with shopping tips.

    This is such an extensive list! Feetures socks are my running must have’s! Have you heard of perfect bars? Those are a new favorite of mine for snacks and/or after a run!
