How hard or easy is it to decide what purchase to make? First, we consider what type of activity.
Gifts for runners and outdoor lover:
Reebok has shoes for every activity. They have a 30-day guarantee, so no need to worry if you got the wrong kind and would like to try a different pair. I’ve switched to using Reebok and my feet and legs and grateful!
shoe LED safety light: Safety first! For high visibility while running. Clip this on to your shoes, vest, or belt.
Reflective gear: Be visible to oncoming traffic. Wear all or just the bands for safety and high visibility. The bands can be strapped to your arms and legs.
Running shades: Nothing like getting glare or having your vision impeded while running. Get eye protection for an enjoyable run.
Sunscreen: yes you need Vitamin D. But depending on the time of day or distance you’re running, sunscreen is a must-have.
Running belt: To carry your essentials such as keys, phone, emergency medication. You may even be able to clip on a small water bottle. This is thin enough to hide under your shirt.
camelback: Nothing beats a good camelback to keep you hydrated in those long runs or hikes. The good thing about this is you eliminate trying to reach for or uncap anything when you need a drink.
Handheld water bottle: This is another choice if you want a lightweight water bottle you’d rather keep on your hand while running.
Shoe ID/ Tags: Another safety and emergency measure every athlete should have.
Headlamp: Do you only have time to jog at night? For your own vision and safety, here’s a lightweight headlamp you can use.
compression socks and sleeves: Not just for runners. Being on my feet and or running all day long has never been the same since I discovered these. I prefer the sleeves (I feel the socks pinch my toes). They help with leg pain, shin splints, and relief from calf pain. Also helps you recover faster from those long runs.
GO Pro: For the outdoor. adventure lover. Nothing like having your good memories and adventures on camera!
