3) Garmin Forerunner 35

Garmin Forerunner 35A highly desired, sleek and sporty member of the Forerunner family – the FR35 is the perfect gift for someone wanting to progress into the running gadgets. A step up from the Forerunner 25, this higher spec yet easy to use watch, will impress. Stocked in four individual colours, this Garmin has a wrist-based heart rate monitor (no need for a chest strap!). Not only does the watch act as a running and multi-sport partner, it also doubles as an everyday activity tracker – tracking your steps and calories burned.

The Forerunner 35 has enabled Bluetooth connection. Allowing smart notifications paired with a smartphone to come through, automatic uploads to the Garmin connect app, music and LiveTrack controls – all via her wrist. GPS technology within the watch will track distance, pace, time and the routes she has run.

The Flipbelt is top contender. It allows the runner to run hands-free. Ranged in multiple colours and sizes at £24.99, this stretchy band of fabric can hold A LOT. Whether its car keys, a mobile phone or 8-10 gels, the runner simply needs to slide them in and flip the belt over and, hey presto! Sound and secure!

If you have a strict £5 budget then the Fitness Mad Spiky Massage Ball is one of our all time favourites and only £4.99! It’s used to release tight, uncomfortable muscles. This in turn helps to release toxins, improve circulation and allow muscle recovery. The best thing about this gift is it can be used and transported anywhere.

TOP 5 GIFTS FOR HIM

1) Ronhill Infinity Fuel Twin Square Shorts

Lets talk about chafing… trust me, its an issue for both men and women and probably the reason you hear shrieks of pain coming from the shower! A decent pair of shorts can go a long way to avoid any unwanted friction and let the runner run in comfort.

Personally, I love the Ronhill Infinity Fuel Twin Shorts (£47). The inner lycra short is super comfortable with good storage and decent soft flask pockets. The back pocket can even accommodate Ronhill’s Stride Windspeed Jacket (£60).  So if you’re feeling extra generous, why not treat him to a head to toe running outfit for less, with our Ronhill offer of 20% off when you spend over £50 on 2 or more items.

2) Garmin Fenix 5

Garmin Fenix 5Is he gaga for gadgets? My Garmin is one of the most essential pieces of kit at my disposal. It doesn’t only record my runs but gets me training smarter, recovering better and avoiding injury. I do more than just run and that’s why I love the Garmin Fenix 5. It offers huge battery life, multi sport capabilities and advanced running dynamics. It’s saved me more than once in white out conditions on the hills, with its trackback feature and for that reason never leaves my wrist.

At £499.99 the Fenix 5 is not a cheap GPS watch, but for outdoor adventurers who need or want to capture everything they do, the Fenix 5 is worth the investment!

If you’re looking for a watch at a lower price point, be sure to check out our Garmin Christmas offers for up to £100 savings across the Forerunner range.

3) Trail Shoes

trail running shoesHas he got a taste for the trails? Hitting the trails means you need to have trust in your footing and confidence in your stride. A decent pair of trail shoes fit for purpose, are a must have!

I highly recommend the Saucony Peregrine 7s which are currently on offer at £85 down from £105. I’ve had 2 pairs myself and they’ve never let me down. Boasting super grippy outsoles, they are great for multi terrain whatever the weather and offer the perfect level of cushioning for those longer runs.
