Holiday Gift Guide: What the Girls Want

I know, I know. You’ve seen ALL the gift guides in the whole world since Thanksgiving. Well, you haven’t seen mine and I bet there’s something on here even the pickiest of lady athletes would love to see under the tree.



  1. New Balance 890v4 are my new favs. Lightweight and so pretty! Size down 1/2 size for New Balance shoes from your normal Sauconys, Brooks, or Asics size.
  2. Camelbak Marathoner Vest for those long winter runs when the water fountains have been turned off (hello, Central Park).
  3. Fitbit Wireless Activity + Sleep Band is a great way to track your calories in and out. WARNING: ONLY BUY FOR SOMEONE WHO HAS ASKED FOR THIS.
  4. Trigger Point Grid Mini because who has space for a full roller?
  5. Oakley Pulse women’s sunglasses for the stylish runner.
  6. And my personal favorite, the Theracane massager for trigger point release when your partner isn’t around. This is seriously the best piece of recovery gear I own.

  1. The Runner Box can be a one-time gift or a bi-monthly present for the runner always checking out new gadgets and fuel. ($20/bi-monthly)
  2. Picky Bars sample pack. Gluten & dairy-free and 100% vegan, I have yet to meet someone who doesn’t love these. My favorite is the {newly christened} Blueberry Boomdizzle.
  3. Nuun Hydration tablets because water is soooo boring. People ask me how I stay hydrated when I train? BOOM. This is how.
  4. The StrideBox is another monthly subscription specific to runners, full of fuel and running gear. ($15/month)

And last, but not least, CLOTHES!!!!!!!

  1. Sweaty Betty Stardust Run Tights because black is so boring.
  2. Lorna Jane Miranda Tank for those indoor sweatfests.
  3. lululemon Frisky Brisk Run Gloves are more substantial than the Brisk Run Gloves of seasons past. Great for cold runs.
  4. When I tell you every woman I know wants or has a pair of Oiselle Time Out Sweatpants, I am not exaggerating.
  5. I swear by a warm neck for winter running and the Sweaty Betty Expedition Neck Gaitor has you covered.
  6. Saucony’s Kinvara Dry Lete Hoody is the all-purpose pullover or base layer to keep you dry (and visible!) on those cold, dark runs.
  7. The lululemon Fluff Off Pullover is all you need when the temperatures dip below freezing. I promise.

What did I miss? What do you need this holiday season from Santa? Maybe some race bling from Erica Sara or a new way to display your race medals. If your lady works out at a boutique studio like Refine Method orFlywheel, a gift card is always a good way to go!

Happy shopping.

Now go out and run!
