Are you looking for some Christmas gift-buying inspiration for the runner in your life? Are you starting to panic that you’ll be making a last-ditch Christmas Eve shopping trip to the 24 hour garage for some Quality Street and a windscreen scraper? Help is at hand. Over the next few weeks Run247 will be bringing you our Christmas gift guide with ideas for all budgets. Here’s part one. 
Stocking fillers


dhb elastic lock laces £2 from www.wiggle.co.uk
Perfect for shaving crucial seconds off your transition time, or, equally, perfect for those times after a long run when you just can’t get down to do those laces up. 
Saucony Omni ponytail running skull cap £15.29 from www.sportsshoes.com
Keep your head warm and make sure your hair is kept out of your eyes while running. As an added bonus it’s even stretchy enough to get over your ears! It's also reversible giving you two options for your running outfit too!
Medium sized gift ideas

toddy calf

Odlo Briana seamless running hoody £75.00  from www.odlo.com/uk
Odlo makes some really lovely kit and we really like the look of this hoody, which apparently uses body mapping to make sure important areas of you are kept warm. That seems important in winter. 
2XU compression calf guards £35.00 from  www.2xu.com/uk
Lighter than calf sleeves, the 2XU Compression Calf Guards are great for training or competitions. Extremely powerful, breathable and engineered – your legs will definitely thank you!

Tribesports side

Tribesports Elite thermal long sleeve top £75.00 from www.tribesports.com
This new Elite range from Tribesports is made from the finest materials, it’s fleecy on the inside and it has lovely details like 2 zip pockets, thumb loops and mesh panels to allow the sweatiest parts of you to breathe. The best part is it won’t even whiff as it’s made from antibacterial fabric! 
Blow the budget

inov8 softshell

inov-8 AT/C Softshell Pro FZ £99.99 at www.inov-8.com
The inov-8 AT/C Softshell Pro FZ is a lightweight outer layer but it’s substantial enough to keep the wind out and it’s made with pertex to keep you warm in cold conditions. It’s got a snug-fitting hood which won’t blow off your head, a high neck to zip up when you need to keep the wind out and nice tapered cuffs with a thumb loop. A great all-purpose jacket for cold/windy conditions. 


TomTom Touch £129.99 from John Lewis, Currys, PC World, Argos and Boots.  More info from www.tomtom.com
Make sure that New Year’s resolutions stick in 2017 with the TomTom Touch.  The first fitness tracker that combines steps, sleep and 24/7 heart rate with body composition.  Measure your body fat and muscle mass percentage right from the wrist – find out not just how active you are, but also how your activity impacts your body, to finally answer the question:  Is what I’m doing, doing anything for me…? 
TomTom Adventurer £269.99 from Sweatshop and amazon.co.uk.  More info at www.tomtom.com
With built-in GPS, heart rate monitor, music player, barometer and compass, the TomTom Adventurer watch is the perfect gift for the outdoors enthusiast.  Dedicated sport modes for hiking, trail running, skiing and snowboarding mean you’re covered, wherever your adventure takes you.  They’ve even included automatic lift detection, so you can automatically see key stats from your last trip down the slopes as soon as you hit the lift.  


Snugs earphones £199.99 from www.snugsearphones.co.uk
Custom-fit earphones that will be comfortable and never fall out! Snugs manufacture your custom buds from soft medical grade silicon using 3D printing so they keep out external noise and give you great sound quality.
