Electra 927 Snowshoes by Atlas would still allow me to pile on the winter training mileage.
Counter Top Fruit Dispenser ($20)The ingenious design of this counter top fruit dispenser maximizes air contact so each orange, apple or other seasonal fruit ripens evenly, while a cleverly placed hook holds a bunch of bananas--runner diet essentials. Not only is it functional, but it looks awesome. I think every runner-kitchen would benefit from one of these.
GEFU Spirelli Slicer ($30)Another runner-kitchen must-have gadget: the GEFU Spirelli Spiral Slicer. It turns any veggie into spaghetti. I love zucchini noodles, but with my limited supplied kitchen, I've been forced to hand-slice the zucchini which really doesn't turn out too great. This slicer would satiate my love of veggie noodles, and I would need to have it in pink or purple.
Schwings ($9)These are just fun little shoe adornments to make running look more fun. Available in wings, lightning bolts, flames, and butterfly wings, Shwings would make a great runner stocking stuffer.
Active Bands. These sports-specific, but super cute headbands keep my hair out of my face for even my longest runs. They fit comfortably, don't slip, and have so many styles there is definitely one for every type of female athlete. Another fabulous stocking stuffer.
bow hair ties are just the stocking stuffer to add that perfect touch to a workout outfit.
Gu. It seems like I'm always running out, and I'm constantly on the lookout for newer exciting flavors. Any type of energy fuels are a runner stocking must.
gift certificates for any type of massage. Your runner will thank you.
foam roller ($20-$60) for massaging tight muscles, hot/cold foot massager ($12) for plantar faciaatis treatment and prevention, BodyGlide ($6-$8) to prevent chafing, KT Tape ($15-$20) to support trouble areas, compression sleeves ($20-$60) to increase circulation, Perform pain relieving roll-on ($13) for those extra-sore spots, water bottle fruit infuser ($11) to encourage hydration by adding your favorite flavor to your water bottle, and epson bath salts ($5) to aid in a post-run soak. Any of these items would be a good stocking stuffer, or pick a few of them for a thoughtful and useful runner-friendly gift basket. You could even place them in a gym bag or drawstring bag for added flair.
Active for local or even destination races. But if you decide to go the destination route, better first make sure they can afford the trip...unless you're covering all those expenses too. Seriously, you can't go wrong with a fun race entry that has great bling.
This is one of my favorite paintings of the Savior. I don't really have much art up in my house, but this Worlds Without End framed painting by Greg Olsen would really bring the spirit in my home.
Hope Bracelets! Bangle bracelets with inspirational quotes from the October 2013 General Conference are another great stocking stuffer option for that Latter-Day Saint on your list. I would love to have all of them, and they would be such a good missionary tool. I'm still searching for these with quotes from the most current conference as well.
Women in the Old Testament and Women in the New Testament focus on many of these remarkable women and explores the influence of Jesus Christ, His prophets, and His gospel on them. Whether these women were identified individually by name or simply mentioned as a devout follower in the crowd, their stories of sacrifice and eager service have rich meaning and application for our lives today.
wood LDS temple ornaments would be just the stocking stuffer to do the trick. I'd like to have one for each temple I've frequented thus far: Portland Oregon, Manti Utah, Lubbock Texas, Dallas Texas, Fresno California, Albuquerque New Mexico, and soon Las Vegas Nevada. These would also brighten up my Christmas tree with that glorious temple light and peace.
Small, sweet, and inexpensive, a temple recommend holder is a great stocking stuffer option. There are so many design and picture options available that you'll easily find the perfect match for your temple-going friend. This gift is also a wonderful way to encourage someone to either receive their temple recommend, or even use theirs more often.
Baby-Sitting for Temple Attendance (your time)I live about 100 miles from the closest temple. Ideally, I'd like to attend at least once, maybe twice a month. The difficult part for me is finding a baby-sitter for the entire 7-hour trip centered around a session time, or even finding a sitter who would go with me and just watch her for the 2.5 hour session. Baby-sitting so I can attend the temple would be such a thoughtful and touching gift, whether it's for the day or for the session.
Let me know if these suggestions helped with your holiday shopping. I'd also love to hear your gift ideas for a Running Mormon.
