Holiday Gift Ideas For the Men

Yesterday was all about the lady athletes. Today is all about the male athlete in your life. If your guy is anything like mine, he is impossible to shop for. If I hear, “I don’t really need anything” from him one more time, I might just put actual coal in his stocking just to prove my point that you have to give people ideas if you expect Christmas presents.

I am not a mind-reader. Even Santa Claus gets a list.

I am, however, pretty good at just guessing at cool things he might like. Here are a few that I’m considering.

JB has said these are the best long-sleeved running shirts he’s every owned. He rarely wears more than this during the winter (well, until February) and wears them well into May. Oh, lululmeon, what would we do without you?

If your man is a sweaty yogi, this towel is a must. I’m a sweaty girl yogi and I cannot practice without it. My mat is like a Slip ‘n Slide otherwise.

If your man would like to get into trail running this winter, these are the perfect shoes for a neutral runner.

My aunt bought these hats for us a few Christmases ago and we found them to be cozy and warm, even on the coldest NYC winter runs.

House decor isn’t usually top on the list for men I know, but we have this rack and it’s a cool way to display his (and your!) accomplishments.

Does your man hate the gym? These workouts are awesome. I’m a fan. And they’re totally manly, too.

Guys love gadgets. The iPod Shuffle is tiny and light–great for runners! No need to carry around your clunky iPhone or Blackberry on a run, these little gems are only $49!

This Garmin does everything your man might need it to do and he can download all of his stats onto the computer to obsess about after each and every workout.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Phew! Now all you have to do is click, buy and wrap them. Do that and then…

…Go out and run!
