Gifts We LOVE for your Valentine

vdayValentine’s Day! Some love it, some hate it and others… well others may RUN from it! If you are stuck on what to get your Valentine this year- no worries. The Jonesin’ sisters have you covered! We know Valentine’s Day is only a few days away so we have tried to make this list as easy as possible for you!

1. Certificate for a Massage/ Mani/ Pedi or maybe ALL three!

Treat them to a gift certificate to get pampered and encourage them to use it after a big goal race. This will let them know you are willing to support them even after the big day is over!

2. iTunes Gift Card

As we have mentioned before most runners love good music. $1.29 songs can add up and a gift card helps not hurt the pocketbook so much when it is time to make a new playlist. If you are trying to avoid the “gift card'” idea, buy them a membership to a premium music app like Rock My Run or another music type app.

3. Race Registration

Let’s be real: Races can be costly when you total up all the runs you may do in one year, so why not lessen the burden on your sweetheart and register them for that race they have been talking about, but yet to sign up– even better sign up to run with them! Remember, a couple that runs together, stays together!

4. Running Accessories

Raid the closet and be sure your sweet thing does not have any of these items. If they don’t head out to your local running store or Dick’s to pick up one of these items now! If you have Amazon Prime 2-day shipping will also work for you!

Yoga MatFitness Tracker– there are A LOT of options out there and all reasonably priced!

fitbitCustom Race Bib Bag— obviously this one will need to be discussed but it would be a great present to give! **Disclaimer: I just think these are cool- no idea about quality. Please read reviews for more information**

bagAnd if you think you need just a little something else.. there is always the real way to win over a girls heart… A Sparkly Soul Headband. Yes, we may be just a little obsessed but they are AWESOME and we PROMISE your main squeeze will love them. (Sorry girls, this helpful hint will not help you shop for your man).

Some other ideas: Buy “Official” Race Photos, Book a room for an extra night and make your next race a “racecation”, Buy a punch pass for a fitness class your mate has been talking about (hot yoga, trx, personal training), or Make a race recovery kit: compression socks, Advil, new comfy sweatpants, official race gear), Workout/Fitness Journal, Fitness related magazine subscription, or a Premium/ Elite Membership for Fitness App (Runkeeper).

Hopefully this list helps takes the stress out of the week for you and maybe if we are lucky our hubs will read this and we will score some sweet running gifts!

What is the best running/fitness related Valentine’s Day gift you have ever received? Are you hoping for anything special or RUNTASTIC this Valentine’s Day?

  1. All great gifts. I have NEVER received a running or fitness gift from my husband!! We aren’t big on Valentines day though, but not even for Xmas! I have my eye on the FitBit Charge with the heart rate monitor though!
