Christmas is right around the corner! And you are still trying to find the perfect gift for the mother runner in your family. Well, do not stress! I have the perfect last minute gift guide list. Let’s go shopping!
1. BOB Revolution Pro (Find it at REI store.)
If your mother runner has a infant or toddler, but doesn’t have a running stroller yet, or maybe she does, but needs an upgrade… this is the stroller!!
Here is why…
It has a swivel front wheel that you can adjust to a fixed wheel for running, or swivel for everyday use.
It also has a hand break on the hand bar so you have more control on down hills.
Adjustable seat for comfort for baby. Lay baby/toddler, all the way down for a nap, or prop the seat straight up so baby/toddler can see the world on all your adventures!
Extra large canopy that shades your baby/toddler from the sun with SPF 50!
Huge oversized storage compartment, so you can bring whatever you and your child needs.
For more details read my review on my top three running strollers.
So your mother runner already has the stroller. Well what about some awesome accessories to make her running experience better and more comfortable.
As your baby becomes a toddler the Snack Tray is a must!
The Weather Shield is a protective shield for bad weather days. That way you don’t have to worry about your child staying dry or warm, and you still can get your run done.
3. Skip Hop Grab & Go Stroller Organizer $22.99 ( Find it at Nordstrom or Buy Buy Baby)
This item is my favorite stroller organizer. It holds water bottle, and all important items right up front with you.
4. L.L. Bean : Ultra Plush Snow Bunting $89.95 (Find it at L.L. Bean)
This is a must have for winter running. It is the ultimate piece of gear to keep your child warm and cozy on winter runs. It’s basically a sleeping bag for the stroller. Every mother runner needs it!
For more details read my review on the Ultra Plush Snow Bunting.
5. Another Mother Runner Books (Find them at Barnes and Nobel or online at Amazon.) Download the audio on iTunes.
Run like a Mother, Train like a Mother, and Tales from Another Mother Runner, are must reads for a BAMR. If the mother runner in your family doesn’t have time to read, give her the audio option. This allows her to listen while she runs.
6. Newton ($120-175)
(These are hard to find. The website might be the only option.)
Newton running came out with the black series. It isn’t a typical neon bright color, but the black is totally badass for a BAMR! It is a limited edition so grab a pair while you can.

7. Every Mother Counts at Oiselle
(Find these at Oiselle)
Every Mother Counts is an organization founded by Christy Turlington Burns, that supports maternal health. There are a lot of great Tshirts and sweatshirts on sale over at oiselle and 40% of the proceeds goes to Every Mother Counts organization. Want to support the organization 100% go to the actual website!
(Find it at your local Running Store)
This watch is absolutely the prettiest fitness tracking watch. Again, I say fitness (not running) because it is a multi sport fitness tracking watch. Although, it does track your runs, you can also track other forms of fitness, including swim. It’s great for the tri athlete as well as the runner in your family.
I personally own the Garmin 620 and it is great too!
Below are some quick ideas if you don’t have time to go shopping!
9. Race Swag
This year at the Marine Corps Marathon Expo I had my 14 month daughter with me. There was so many awesome finisher swag, shirts, jackets, etc. but there was no way I was going to wait in a long line with my little one. So I skipped it and went straight to shopping the other vendors.
If this same thing happened to the mother runner in your family, then going to the race website and seeing if they still have some finisher swag to purchase would be an awesome Christmas present.
10. Race Entry Fee
Another great idea is figuring out which race is the next up, and cover the registration fee.
I hope that helps complete your shopping! Your mother runner will be so happy with these gifts!!
