12 Christmas gifts for women who run

1/ Boom Boom Athletica Ying Yang leggings

£105, Boom Boom Athletica

With stylish printed segments and a flattering high waist, these leggings are just as at home at the pub as they are on the track. The price tag may seem a little steep, but their longevity and excellent quality makes them utterly worth it.


2/ Saucony Kinvara 8

Saucony have brought their popular neutral Kinvara design out in this subtle grey colourway – an ideal gift for those who dislike bold colours or for runners who go from training to work without needing to switch over shoes.


3/ Adidas Pure Amplify jacket

£79.95, Adidas

Lightweight yet cosy, this jacket is the ultimate gift to runners with a busy winter training routine. It even boasts a sweat-guarded pocket to avoid any essential items getting damp on the run.


4/ Stance holiday socks set

£19.31, Stance

It wouldn’t be Christmas without being gifted a pair of socks, so double up with this Christmas-themed holiday set from Stance – snug, festive toes all round.


5/ Asics Fuze X long sleeved shirt

£40, Asics

This ombre design running top is a timeless piece of kit ideal for occasional and regular runners alike. The MotionDry technology wicks sweat away from skin, and the four classic colours make it a worthy running wardrobe addition.


6/ Fact + Fiction Charli quilted backpack

£135, Fact + Fiction

This is the Swiss Army knife of gym bags, with a breathable bottom compartment for sweaty gym kit, a padded laptop sleeve and plenty of pockets. Gone are the days of carrying three different bags on workout days: Fact + Fiction (formerly known as Gymtote) have covered everything – and they’ve done it in style.


7/ Run necklace

For the runner with drawers overflowing with activewear, this necklace is the perfect run-related gift that won’t break the bank (or the dresser). In silver, gold and rose gold colours, this pendant is perfect for rest days.


8/ Lululemon Rest Less pullover

Stay snug with this toasty pullover. It’s designed for wear on the run but is also smart enough for work – win win. We love the thumbholes and four-way stretch for ultimate comfort.


9/ Brooks Run Happy visor

Gift this visor at Christmas and your loved one can stash it away for summer next year! The open top allows for plenty of ventilation while the peak protects eyes from bright sunshine and winds.


10/ Bjorn Borg tights

£35, Bjorn Borg

Made from 88% recycled material, we love the style of these Bjorn Borg tights – and the price tag. Complete with side pocket, these anti-chafe leggings are great for long runs, cross-training or simply hanging out.


11/ The North Face women’s Ambition top

£60, The North Face

This North Face top is designed to prevent under and overheating, and its classic look makes it great for runners of any age. It’s got an invisible back pocket too to stow away any essentials.
