Best Gifts for Runners: Celebrate Successes

We’d bet you a Gu that your runner either has a race she’s crazy proud of or is training for a big race, and this is a great time to show that you think she should celebrate by giving her a gift that lets her brag a bit about her accomplishment.

JHill Design Maps for Runners ($17): These stylized maps of marathon routes are not just colorful (and very suitable for framing), but they’re even personalized with runner’s finish time, race date and a brief course description. This is straight up cool, you guys. So cool.

York Sign Shop Chalkboard Race Bib and Medal Holder ($45): What makes this medal holder stand out from the rest is its personalized — and updatable — nature. Oh, and if you’re buying for someone who runs different distances or events, no problem — you can customize your order from the get-go. Gotta love Etsy.

Endure Marathon Necklace ($52): Not every marathoner wants 26.2 emblazoned across everything she wears, and this pendant with the impressive distance shown in Roman numerals is a slightly more subtle way of celebrating the accomplishment. It’s available in other distances and finishes, too.

Oh, and if you didn’t see anything you liked here, you can always see what’s still available in our gift guides from past years!

What are you buying the runner in your life? —Kristen
