And now - for the runner/hiker/walker/biker/swimmer/skier on your list...
Don't just stuff their stockings with cheap chocolates and DVDS this Christmas. Give something healthful (and helpful).
Wrist Runner ($6.95) or Reflective Shoe Pocket ($5.95) from Nathan Sports
Both of these handy little items serve the same purpose. Make it easy for the runner/biker/walker in your life to carry his/her keys, credit card, and a little bit of cash...while still being able to keep his/her hands-free.
Steel 700 ml Flip Straw Bottle (~$22.99) from Nathan Sports
Say good-bye to plastic water bottles and say hello to this wide-mouth, BPA-free water bottle - sturdy enough for the serious athlete, stylish enough for the fashion-conscious, and eco-friendly enough for the truly green.
ShrinQ Pocket Pedometer ($29.99) from Sportline
Help someone you love get to 10,000 steps a day with the ShrinQ Pocket Pedometer. This handy miniature gadget is designed to fit in any-size pocket and tracks your steps, your distance traveled, and your calories burned.
Sport Beans by Jelly Belly
Packed with Electrolytes, Carbohydrates, and Vitamins B & C (oh, yeah...and sugar), these high-flavor fruity beans will keep your athlete going as he/she bikes, runs, hikes, or expends energy in some other athletic capacity. Available in four fruity flavors (Berry Blue, Orange, Lemon-Lime, Fruit Punch), the 1 oz. bags retail for about $1 each and are available at a variety of health stores.
Sharkies Organic Energy Sports Chews
Another excellent alternative to the typical energy bar! These tasty shark-shaped treats are gelatin-free, fat-free, wheat-free, gluten-free...and are packed with electrolytes. Available in five fruity flavors (Citrus Squeeze, Fruit Splash, Berry Blast, Watermelon Scream, Peach Tree Breeze), these fruit snacks retail for just over $1 per 1.58 ounce pouch. My husband and I both liked the taste of these yummy, gummy, power-packed chews. Such a delicious way to stay energized on a bike or trail!
