Happy Friday, all! It’s finally here. WHEW. It has been a long, tough week for me, getting back into my regularly scheduled workout routine. I am SORE. Yeow. All I kept thinking when I’ve been working out this week is that these muscles are the ones that will be lifting my couch up three flights of stairs when I move in 17 days…let’s strengthen these babies UP!
Enough about that. I am maybe 46% excited that it’s the holiday season (most of my excitement is being directed toward grad school). I know we are already smack-dab in the middle of Hanukkah, and Christmas is quickly approaching, but I thought I’d share a few of my recent faves that might be the perfect little something for someone on your holiday gift list. Without further ado…
Oiselle Flyte Long Sleeve
This seamless running shirt is cute enough to wear in real life! The fabric is light, soft, sweat-wicking, non-chafing and of course has thumb holes. The perfect shirt for chilly winter runs and wearing to get coffee afterwards too. It has outstanding reviews and is sure to inspire you to lace up your sneaks and get out there. Find it here: Oiselle Flyte Long Sleeve.
2. Runner Box
The Runnerbox is filled with all things having to do with running, perfect for your marathoner friends and family: gels, chews, protein shakes, snacks, personal care, running accessories and discounts. Boxes are sent out every two months and cost between $20 and $25, depending on how many months you choose to subscribe. Hi, who doesn’t want a fun gift to open every two months?! Runnerbox also has boxes devoted to cyclists and triathletes.
3. Reach for the Moon Pendant
This is so CUTE! I randomly came across this collection of necklaces (reasonably priced at around $55 each) with each one having a different meaning. I think it’s such a cute way to wear as a reminder to set your goals high, with a blue moonstone for happiness, blue topaz for joy, love, luck and health; and iolite to open the mind. Adorbs. You can find it at Uncommon Goods.
4. GRID Mini Foam Roller
I have a serious love affair with my foam roller – it hurts so good! The Grid Mini Foam Roller ($25) loosens tight muscles and helps prevent injuries; it’s a great tool after any workout. This small, travel-friendly roller is easy to store and bring to roll out your legs after you attempt to run off your Chrismukkah feast. It makes the perfect gift for the ones you love. 🙂
5. Garden Jar
This Garden Jar, although back ordered because it snagged a spot on Oprah’s Favorite Things list, is such a sweet gift idea. It contains three self-watering jars containing basil, parsley and mint. You can grow the herbs indoors in a sunny window and you’ll have fresh herbs on hand when it’s time to throw them in your favorite dishes. SO AWESOME. Find it here: Garden Jar 3-pack.
I hope that you guys all have a fabulous Friday and weekend! The name of the game for me is a) pack it up and b) see friends, so I will be doing that all weekend long. What are you guys up to this weekend? Tell me all about it in the comments.
