People are posting wish lists and wants all over the internet. First of all, I say why limit it to the holidays?? I want things year round!! Don’t feel pressured to give me gifts because the calendar tells you it’s time – feel free to shop whenever the urge hits you!!
It may be difficult to believe but I don’t only want running gear. Sure it’s on the top of the list, but the list is long…
As a hairdresser, I’m in the beauty industry so I love all things sparkly. I’d be thrilled with some of the makeup I use all wrapped up in a pretty bag, some protein powder or vitamins from Complete Nutrition or my Dermalogica product. Things I use every day and cost money. Gift certificates are one of my favorite things – it’s 2 gifts. First you get to open it and see what it is, second you get to go spend it. LOVE!!! Daniela Corte is a favorite designer if you need a hint. Deka is another great place and I still want a bag from Fitmark to stash my computer, crap for the salon and workout gear. Endless possibilities.
For running my #1 request would be a gift certificate to BodyRock Sport. No big surprise there!! Second would probably be a gift certificate at Reno Running Company. Sure, they have my stats on file there so you could just grab and go which would be absolutely fine, but again – it’s fun to get to shop. So either way I’m thankful. Oiselle is another company I adore – best running shorts ever!!! Sure you could get me the Polar GPS watch I want for a low $450 if you’re so inclined but it’s fine to keep it simple. Etsy has so many artists listed with running jewelry and ornaments that it would be impossible not to find something fitting.
So, go!! Shop!! Don’t hesitate!! Get your running buddy’s sizes and preferences and shop year round!!!
