Do you have a trail runner in your life? Tired of giving them the standard shoes and clothing combination for the holidays?
Deck their halls, jingle their bells, and make sure their next race is holly and jolly with these gifts:
Butt Cream—Nothing kills the mood in the bedroom faster than a pair of gnarly feet. Give them a not-so-subtle hint about their foul piggies by sticking some butt cream (yes, butt cream for your feet) into their stocking. Who knows, when your runner finishes a race with baby-soft skin, you just may develop a new foot fetish.
Baby wipes—Are you saying “I love you” or “Please carefully wipe your ass” with this gift? Both! Show your runner you care about her, um, assets by not letting her wipe with grass and leaves in the middle of a run. Bonus points if you pre-package them into individual ziplock bags!
Hat rack—If your runner’s hats are multiplying faster than fertile bunnies, help corral them with this nifty gift. Oh, it helped declutter your house too? Win-win for the both of you!
Animal face mask—We all know that trail runners are animals, so why not make it official with these purrrrfect face warmers? The locals might hate you for inducing heart attacks, but that’s the price you pay for looking awsome.
Custom flask—It’s no secret that trail runners like to take a nip of the good stuff before, during, or after a run. Or all three. No one judges. Aid in their celebration by adding an elevation profile or buckle design to their whiskey carrier.
Pizza holder—Self explanatory. Your runner needs this.
Boo Boo Bunny—When your runner has the inevitable owie but you don’t want to kiss it and make it all better yourself, call in the troops. Bunnies, bears, and puppies can make even the nastiest cuts tolerable.
Buff—Headband, neck gaiter, sweat-catcher, neck-chiller, snot rag, fashion statement—this gift has endless possibilities! It can even be emblazoned with their favorite trail running group’s logo.
Storage container—Give the gift of stress-free race organization with some empty plastic tubs. Your runner will look forward to his new aid station addition, and you’ll better enjoy your crew duties.
Massage—Trail runners are a resilient folk, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t want some pampering. Give her the gift of someone else trying to mend her tired, ravaged body for 90 minutes.
