Gifts for Runners Under $100

Gift Guide 2023 | Fleet Feet

Updated on

We get it: It’s hard to find the best gifts for the runners in your life.

A lot of the best running gear is based on preference—some runners like the coffee flavored gel while others want the strawberry—and gadgets like GPS watches can quickly bust your budget. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t great finds out there at the right price.

So, if you’re struggling to find the perfect gift, we’re here to help.

Who are we? We are runners and walkers with more than 45 years of outfitting, training and running experience—and we love helping runners of all abilities find the right gear.

The gift ideas on this list run between $50 and $100. If you’re looking for something else, check out our gifts for runners under $25 and gifts for runners under $50.

Superfeet Run Dynamic Cushion Insoles


Being on your feet all day can take its toll, whether you’re running a marathon or pulling a double shift at work. That’s where the Run Dynamic insoles come in.

These insoles add another layer of cushioning to your shoes to help keep you comfortable, and they have lightly structured support that’s made to move with you. Plus, there are different versions for people with high arches and people with low arches, so you can find the perfect match.

Give the Gift of Versatility

Vuori Kore Short


Your one-stop, do-it-all, built-in-underwear shorts are here, and they’re called the Kore Short.

Vuori cut the Kore short for a classic, athletic fit, which means you can run, bend, climb and lift without restriction. A breathable boxer-brief liner adds support and gives a layer of chafing protection, while the drawstring in the waistband lets you dial in the fit.

Give the Gift of Recovery

ROLL Recovery R4 Body Roller


What makes the R4 different from other foam rollers on the market? It’s the shape.

Designed with a unique center groove, ROLL built the R4 to relax your spine and neck, as well as your IT band and Achilles tendon. The just-right density is firm enough to untie the tightest knots, and the diamond-shaped texture adds the ideal amount of grip.

Give the Gift of Uniqueness

Cotopaxi Luzon 18L and Batac 24L


Perfect for a day hike, gym bag or carry-on, these Cotopaxi bags give you standout performance and head-turning style.

The Batac features a main zippered compartment and two mesh water bottle pockets, while the Luzaon sports a top drawstring closure for easy loading. But both models deliver the one-of-a-kind colors and look of a Cotopaxi bag, so you can show off your personality.

Give the Gift of All-Day Hydration

Hydro Flask 32oz or 40oz Wide Mouth


Hot or cold. All day and everyday.

Hydro Flask engineers the Wide Mouth bottles from double-wall, vacuum insulated stainless steel to keep your drinks at the correct temperature. The wide mouth makes it easier to add ice and easier to clean, while the leakproof lid means you can toss it in a backpack without worry.

Give the Gift of Lounging

Vuori Performance Joggers


We recommend the Vuori Performance Joggers every chance we get.

A mainstay on our gift guides, the Performance Joggers are a wardrobe staple for runners, walkers and comfort-seekers. Cut from the softest stretch fabric and secured with a drawstring for laid-back vibes, you can wear these for a quick warmup before your run or for a Sunday afternoon nap on the couch—or really anything in between.

Give the Gift of Support

Brooks Dare Strappy Run Bra 2.0

$45 - $60

Support for running, style for everything else.

The Brooks Dare Strappy Run Bra 2.0 offers high-impact support that’s been lab-tested to reduce motion and increase comfort. With breathable fabric and laser-cut perforations in the straps, the Dare bra optimizes airflow to keep you cooler as you work up a sweat.

Give the Gift of Warmth

Craft ADV Essence Warm Tight


Cold weather coming? Protect yourself with these performance-focused Craft tights.

The ADV Essence tights fit snugly for unrestricted movement, and the elastic waistband pairs with a drawcord for the perfect no-slip fit. Craft brushed the fabric on the inside for extra warmth, so you can train hard even when the mercury drops.

Give the Gift of Visibility
Amphipod Xinglet Optic Beam Lite USB Rechargable Vest Thumbnail

Amphipod Xinglet Optic Beam Lite USB Rechargeable Vest


When days get shorter, it’s important to stay visible when you’re running outside. The Xinglet Optic Beam is a lightweight, low-profile way to keep you safe.

The LED vest weighs only 3 oz, so you barely feel it while you’re running. But the 360-degree illumination and up to five hours of run time mean drivers and other runners will be able to see you easily in the dark.

Our favorite part is that it charges via USB—no fumbling with batteries.

Give the Gift of Shorts With Pockets

Vuori Studio Pocket Shorts


High-rise biker shorts. With pockets. Say no more.

The Vuori Studio Pocket Shorts have a hidden interior stash pocket at the waist as well as a drop-in pocket on each hip making them perfect for runs or HIIT classes.
