Holiday Gift Ideas I Love....

Well ... It is so hard to believe Christmas is almost here!!!!  Didn't we just have bikinis on and weren't we sweating our butts off in the summertime heat just the other day?? 

Now that the hustle and bustle of the holiday season is in full effect I wanted to share with you all some of my favorite gift ideas!

I was sent these amazing Koss FitClip and FitBuds to test out as part of a FitFluential campaign .... I LOVE them!  The best part is they are super affordable and functional!  They cost about $19.99 ( on sale at some retail stores during the holiday season ) - $29.99.   I have gone through so many pair of earbuds this past year and was currently using my 9 yr old sons angry birds pair but not anymore thanks to Koss!  I love that they are designed specifically for women and have 3 different size earbud inserts with each set!  I am loving the FitClips for running because I like the secure feeling but for indoor workouts and treadmill running I have been wearing the FitBuds!
I heart FitClips

 These also will make the perfect stocking stuffer....So slim and sleek!

Don't mind super speedy David in the background drinking a beer post race!!  I love how these Fitbuds fit nice and snug in my ears and did not blow out during the race! So make sure you check KOSS out.

Another gift I know your favorite runner girl would love is ANY Oiselle item!  I am completely passionate about products I find and love and Oiselle is one of them.  I currently have a huge wish list going!!  I really wish more stores closer to me carried their products!  I know for sure Philadelphia Runner on 202 by Wholefoods carries their line!

I love the Schwings for running shoes and who remembers days of the week undies as a little girl??  Now you can have some Rundies to motivate you on your run!  And that hoodie ... MUST HAVE!

As you all know I am also a Mizuno For Life girl and you can never go wrong with them... It just so happens they have had some brilliant shoes released in the beginning of December and I am currently having a love affair with my Wave Rider 17's! 

They also offer some pretty fun colors too!

Wave Rider 17 and 16's !!

Mizuno also has there Breath Themo line which is great for cold weather running and offered for his or hers!

I am also in love with Alex and Ani ... There is a store on Main Street in Newark!  There are so many special bracelets and you can find the perfect one for that special someone!  I got my friend this one because she has come so far with her running and is going to do the Hot Chocolate 15K in April!
I LOVE the shoe with wings!
This also reminds me of Oiselle!
Here are some other beauties:

I WANT THIS ONE! It's Not A Sprint It's A Marathon!!! 

Or if you are crafty you can also make the perfect gift:

Here is Nana's wreath the boys and I made last week!  She loved it.  It was truly so simple to make and barely cost $6!!

I am also a fan of Gift Cards ... I know some people do not like to receive gift cards but I think they are great especially if they are to Starbucks or my favorite running store ( Delaware Running Company )!!! 

SO these are a few of my favorite things but honestly I am just grateful to spend the holidays with my family and friends!  Being with family and remembering the true meaning of Christmas is what it is all about!

Merry Christmas and Happy Running!


  1. Oiselle products are definitely on my wish list.....and the new Mizuno's! =)

  2. I like the shoe fit and I have worn New Balance WW847 for several years. I was dissatisfied in the quality of this WW847. The facing/binding on top of the instep, is not finished properly. It has raw/raveled sides. I returned one pair of the same version with this grievance and received another pair with the very same problem. None of my previous pair of various New Balance styles have actually had this trouble - the top quality was fine with my various other New Balance styles. I even have to ask yourself if this set were "seconds"?
