We finally made it to November! This means, for many of us, it's time to start planning our holiday gift giving strategy!
Check out my top 10 - in no particular order and grouped by type - gift ideas (and some honorable mentions) below! I was not influenced or told to include any of these brands in this post - this is all based on my opinion and I own (and love!) every single item in my top 10. I also have at least one product from all of the brands that made the honorable mention section.
For those of you trying to "shop small" this holiday season, I've added a "Shop Small!" to signify brands with less than 15K followers on Instagram!
Beginning December 1st, I'll be featuring my top 10 as posts on my instagram @stephhh_it_uppp. Stay tuned!
1. ON RUNNING SHOES
2. HYPERWEAR WEIGHTED VEST Shop Small!
3. CROSSROPE JUMP ROPES - GET FIT BUNDLE
4. BRUTEFORCE SANDBAG
5. NOXGEAR TRACER360 (visibility vest)
6. LEGENDBORNE CUSTOM JERSEY SHOP SMALL!
7. T-SPARTAN SPARTAN WARRIOR NECKLACE SHOP SMALL!
8. COACH SOAK BATH SOAK SHOP SMALL!
9. ALTRED ENDURANCE & RECOVERY SUPPLEMENT SHOP SMALL!
10. OOFOS RECOVERY SANDALS
Why I love them?
I completed A LOT of obstacle course races in 2019. The races combined with increasing my running mileage toward the second half of the year led me to oofos. I love slip ons, so these were perfect to change in to immediately after a race and to run errands in after a long run. Walking in these sandals after running felt like a treat for my feet. I even bought a pair for my apartment as slippers - wearing oofos feels better than walking around with bare feet!
Why they'll love them?
If that runner in your life doesn't currently own a pair of recovery sandals or shoes, they are in for a treat. With this gift, they'll be thanking you and saying they can't believe they've made it this long without having a pair of these! And if you're a runner yourself and you don't have these, you might as well buy a pair for yourself as a holiday treat!
$50 - $80
Check out their website and be sure to follow them on Instagram!
The following brands didn't have gift ideas that made my top 10 list, but that doesn't mean they don't have amazing gifts! Be sure to check these brands out, too!
Ninja Passport SHOP SMALL!
This is a great gift for an athlete who may be interested in exploring ninja warrior gyms or for a ninja who is planning on doing some travel next year! Check out the gyms that participate in this program to see if this would work as a gift. For all participating gyms, their first visit is free and the second visit is 50% off!
Price: $44.10 with discount (Use Code STEPH for 10% off a solo adventurer pass)
Stronghold SHOP SMALL!
For the ninjas (or other athletes!) who want to work on their grip strength at home, all they need is a pull up bar. Stronghold ninja grips can do the rest! The Big G is making its rounds on Instagram and is giving those with great grip strength a run for their money. I love the bunny ears I bought from them earlier this year!
Price: $40 +
I love goodr sunglasses - I have too many pairs to count at this point! They have been really great for running - they don't slide or fog up - and they're stylish enough to wear on a day to day basis, too. You're guaranteed to find the perfect pair for that special someone!
Price: $25 +
Just like my goodr sunglasses, I have way too many headbands to count. I've never had an issue with junk headbands sliding down or falling off and with so many different designs to choose from, I always seem to have a headband to match my outfit!
Price: $16 +
Need a good stocking stuffer? Can't go wrong with these plant-based protein chips! They taste amazing and they're healthier than regular chips. My favorite flavors - Spicy Sweet Peppers, Tapatio Sour Cream, and Cinnamon Churro!
Price: $2.49 per bag (save 25% with code IWONAMB25)
