Women's Balega Enduro No Show Sock
Every runner can always use an extra pair of socks, and the Balega’s Women’s Enduro No Show Running Socks are some of the best out there. These babies mold perfectly to the contours of your feet and contain Balega’s proprietary Drynamix ® moisture wicking fibers to help keep your feet dry, comfortable and blister-free. While more expensive than basic cotton socks, these make running much more comfortable and last for years. Plus, she will think of you every time she puts them on for a run.
You can also get her the Grit & Grace version, where a portion of the proceeds from every sock goes to Breast Cancer Prevention Partners. These limited edition socks have sayings such as “beautiful warrior,” “be brave, keep going” and “further together, stronger together” to give her inspiration for her runs.

Women’s Vuori Halo Performance Hoodie 2.0
The Vuori Halo Performance Hoodie 2.0 is a great gift to give to your favorite runner—or anyone. This zip-up hoodie is made with buttery soft material that feels amazing. It’s the ideal layering piece for someone with an active lifestyle and can be worn while working out, with jeans or even over a dress for a fun, casual look.
Plus, it feels soft and comfortable from the first wash to the 50th because it doesn’t pill like a traditional sweatshirt. Give the gift of coziness to your favorite runner with this hoodie.
Garmin Forerunner 255 Music
The Garmin Forerunner 255 Music is a powerful, practical addition to any runner’s arsenal. The nice aspect of this GPS watch is that it has everything your runner needs to train, whether she is a beginner runner or running her 50th marathon. She can track her workouts, track her daily lifestyle goals, check notifications and listen to music straight from the watch (with Bluetooth headphones like Shokz).
You are also helping to give the gift of safety with this watch because it features LiveTrack, which lets friends and family follow her real-time location and view her pre-planned course. Plus, If she feels unsafe or if her watch senses that an incident occurred, the assistance and incident detection features can send her location to emergency contacts.
Women's Vuori Performance Joggers
Any woman in your life will be thrilled with a pair of Vuori Performance Joggers. These buttery soft joggers are the ultimate in comfort. They are designed with a relaxed fit, slightly cropped legs and side pockets.
Not only do they feel amazing, but they also look good on lots of body types and can be used for hanging out on the couch or any type of workout. The toughest decision for this gift is whether to get a pair for yourself, too.
Power Plate Pulse 3.0
Women's New Balance Printed Impact Run Tight
There is nothing like a fun pair of tights to make working out more enjoyable, which is why she will love wearing the New Balance Printed Impact Run Tight. Whether she is doing a HIIT workout or doing her long run while training for a half marathon, these tights will meet her demands.
If you ask most women what makes a great running tight, most will reply with pockets. These tights have two side drop-in hip pockets that fit phones close to the body without bouncing and a secure back zippered pocket for keys, cards and more.
Women's Brooks Dash Half Zip
Nathan Vibe Reflective Vest
One way to show that you care about the women in your life is to make sure that they stay safe. With winter comes less daylight and many runners and walkers will get their workouts in before the sun comes up or after it sets when it is hard for others to see them.
The Nathan Vibe Reflective Vest is one of the best reflective vests to help her be seen by drivers and other road users. Providing 360 degrees of reflectivity, this is easy to throw on over any outfit when she is running in the dark. Whether she is running before the kids wake up or walking the dog after work, this tool will help her get home safely.

What makes the perfect gift for a runner comes down to the personal experience, goals, preferences and style of that runner. We use a combination of real-life use, quality of materials, seasonal trends and our own top-seller lists to pick out the best gifts. With all that in mind, we picked gear that lived up to our personal (and professional) expectations. Plus, as people who live and breathe running, we know what we would like to unwrap ourselves.
