GIFTS FOR THE RUNNERS

BEST GIFTS FOR RUNNERS

“How can anyone enjoy running?!”

The age-old question of the non-runner. It seems probable that runners have completely different brain wiring. We’ll have our lab flamingos run some tests on that… One thing we can say for certain is that runners are known to be a little particular. This makes gift buying extra fun! Have you ever tried to buy running shoes with a runner???! Torture.

We’ve made shopping for that special weirdo *ahem* runner in your life easy for you by narrowing the options down to topics that matter.

** No runners were actually tested on… yet…
*** We don’t have lab flamingos, so you have nothing to worry about… yet…

WHAT SUNGLASSES TO BUY YOUR RUNNER FRIEND:

LOW LIGHTS

Oh winter running… Depending on where you live, it can be extra challenging to put in the miles when there is blistering cold wind and ice pellets nailing those delicate eyeballs. Low light sunglasses provide the protection needed to endure the elements. No more squinting eyes, so you can spend more time watching your step.

STAND THE EFF OUT

With everyone’s favorite, daylight savings time, runners find themselves running more and more during the twilight hours. The sun is setting, sunglasses are still mandatory, and rush hour traffic is getting blasted by refracting rays. Not only will these bright AF sunglasses help you see, but they’ll help get you seen! Stand out on every training run, every race, and every post-run ice cream run to the grocery store. Did we say run? We meant drive. Can’t risk melted ice cream.

FESTIVE

TBH, you can’t go wrong buying someone a pair of holiday sunglasses. What a special treat. It’s like getting a tin of Christmas cookies without the extra calories. (Although, now that we think about it, these polarized sunglasses would be great gift paired with a cookies…) Some of the most fun road races are holiday themed; now is your opportunity to spread that cheer from your lucky runner friend’s feet to their face! Warning: These may cause wearer to break out in spontaneous caroling.

Here’s to a happy winter season of running, cookie eating, and eggnog sippin’! Cheers!
