What to Gift the Guy in Your Life Who Loves to Run

As POPSUGAR editors, we independently select and write about stuff we love and think you'll like too. If you buy a product we have recommended, we may receive affiliate commission, which in turn supports our work.

Holiday shopping for guys can be tricky, but a good rule of thumb is to choose a gift that aligns with their interests. If your dad loves music, get him a vinyl album by his favorite band. Even if he doesn't have a record player, he can use it as decor. Or say your boyfriend is super into cooking. He would probably be excited to unwrap a personalized apron or a new sauté pan. Similarly, if the guy in your life is a running enthusiast, you're in luck — there are tons of great gift options out there for the fitness obsessed.

When you're shopping for a runner, there are a few different ways to go. You can keep it classic with activewear, such as joggers or workout tees. You can also opt for a tech-oriented product to help him track his personal progress. Regardless of what you have in mind, you are sure to find something perfect in this gift guide.
