Hi Guys!

My office Secret Santa has been drawn and I've got a young guy who is a really enthusiastic triathlete. Any ideas what I can get him for £10? I'd rather not buy a load of junk that will get chucked in the bin 5 minutes after its opened!

Thank you

There's some other suggestions here (http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/forum/triathlon/christmas-presents-for-a-triathlete/234676.html) although the budget is a little higher.

500g E45 cream from Boots the Chemist - if lucky, you may bogof or get one half price. Alternatively check out his moisturiser of choice.

Thanks very much guys, some good ideas there!

Just saw the Triathlon Pasta on the old Christmas present thread - that's brilliant

Tub of Sudocreme?  OK, two tubs.

I really want some of the pasta for myself! They do a runner-only version too.

I can only imagine the jokes from the rest of the office if he opens a tube of bodyglide in front of everyone. Might be worth it for that

If he's already a triathlete, my money says he's got a number belt.  I'd go with some Bodyglide, you can never have too much. If that's not quite a tenner, top it up with a nutrition bar or gel.

Thanks everyone I did some sneaky coffee break research and it turns out that he hasn't read IronHolgs book so I'm getting that (just over £8 with free delivery on play.com ) , an energy gel and a voucher for a free Graze box (cheating a bit with the Graze box because I had that already).

Go on, get an office whip round for a tube of Durex latex friendly lubricant. Yes that stuff.

(Note, if he uses it on neck, ankles and wrists on race day he'll get a LOT of comments if it's the one that includes spermicide.)
