Valentine’s Day Gifts for Runners | Five on Friday

If you are me, chocolate tastes WAY too good and gives me a tummy ache! For “chocolate holidays,” I would much rather get a new piece of pink or red running gear! Here are a few of my ideas *hint hint*!


Pink compression socks

Compression gear is always a running girl’s best friend! There are several companies with great compression garments – i.e. Pro Compression , CEP Compression , Crazy Compression, and SLS3 are just a few. When Pro Compression comes out with their limited edition Valentine’s Day print, I have to contain my excitement! This year’s release wasn’t any different – and sold out quickly!

Motivational Momentum Wrap with pink color wrap

Momentum makes some great lightweight wraps, leather wraps, and leather bracelets that you can personalize with amazing, motivating quotes. Simple text stating “believe in yourself,” “find the joy in the journey,” or custom text like “love the run” are great little reminders at the turn of your wrist! The wraps are great because they don’t move around and chafe. I also love my leather wrap for “fancier” occasions! The pink wrap would make for a great Valentine’s Day gift!

Pink Hydration and or Fuel

What gal wouldn’t want or need some pink hydration support and running fuel? I use both Nuun and Honey Stinger for these purposes for my running adventures. Now that Nuun has a new Active and Energy formula, I would love to try the #nuunandimproved (see what I did there?!) Strawberry Lemonade Active, Tri-Berry Active, Wild Berry Energy, and Grapefruit Orange All Day. Also, Nuun is on sale for Valentine’s Day! Use nuunlove at checkout for 20% off!

Similarly, I could always go for trying new (to me) flavors of Honey Stinger, including Strawberry Kiwi gel, Fruit Smoothie gel, Strawberry waffles, Raspberry Protein chews, or Cherry Blossom chews!

The Original Worm – pink

Every gal would love a massage for Valentine’s Day – but who has time for that?! Not me at least. But the gift of the Original Worm would be a great massage gift that would last more than a 30-60 minute session! With the Original Worm, I could roll out the kinks that are giving me trouble, no matter the time or place!


Entry into a Valentine’s Day race

What is a better way for your love to reward you for your running efforts than sign you up for a Valentine’s Day (or weekend) race! I am rewarding myself this year – the Sweetheart 5K is my Saturday morning, post long run, race!

  1. The Original Worm? I’ve never even heard of that… it would be perfect for work to keep at my desk to work out those kinks from sitting all day!

    I’m so obsessed with those heart compression socks!


    1. They are great! I have found myself struggling on a run and just thinking (randomly) about my momentum “run happy” and “every step counts” and I get a burst of energy 🙂 I really like my leather wrap for “dressier” times too


  2. Love these ideas! I am totally going out and getting some of those pink Stinger chews (they’re probably better than my Starburst) and that Momentum wrap is great idea!


  3. I actually own NO compression socks. I keep meaning to order a pair, since everyone raves about them, but I keep forgetting. Those Valentine’s prints are so CUTE! & I don’t usually use the Honey Stinger Chews, but I don’t think I could turn down all the pink packaging. 🙂

    I would love a pedicure GC for Valentine’s Day. I would celebrate by getting some bright pink polish!
