Hey everyone! Can you believe that Thanksgiving is next week? November has FLOWN by, heck, the entire year has flown by!! This can be a chaotic time of year for everyone, including me. Since having kids I have done ALL of my Christmas shopping online. It’s just so easy, I mean the thought of going to a mall anytime between Thanksgiving and Christmas makes me want to vomit. Seriously. My blood pressure rises just thinking about it. So, I decided to come up with a list of the FIVE Best Stocking Stuffers for the Runner in your life. I compiled the list on my own based on my favorite products for under $30.
1. iTunes Gift Card
You can NOT go wrong with this….unless the runner in your life doesn’t listen to music when they run….in that case, give it to them anyway, maybe they’ll re-gift
2. Sweaty Bands (Retail $7-$18)
Sweaty Bands are my all time favorite headband. They have the awesome non-slip velvet lining on the underside and they truly do NOT budge. I grabbed a few new ones at the MCM expo this year, I could seriously spend SO.MUCH.MONEY. on these. They patterns are super cute and stylish, and they also have fun seasonal ones too!
3. Racedots (retails $24.99)
I did a review recently on these. If you haven’t checked it out, you should. I said goodbye to pins FORVER. And you can still use the 15% off code for a new set. Use code TMR4C14 for 15% off!!
4. KT Tape
Ok, so…if the runner in your life isn’t injured, this MIGHT not work….but you may just need them to fake an injury so they can wear this awesome CHEVRON tape. This is LIMITED EDITION people, go…run…GET.IT.NOW before it’s gone FOREVER!!! Heck, I don’t need it at the moment, but I may wear it any way, because it is so darn cute! Are you with me?
And last but certainly not least, my favorite hydration, Nuun. I’ve been training with Nuun for the last 2 1/2 years and absolutely love it. It is one of very few products that does not upset my tummy. When the lovely people at Nuun reached out and asked if I wanted to try a few of their new flavors, I said Hell to the ya!!
So, as most of you know, I’m a nurse and I work night shift. And guess what, I don’t do coffee. When I work nights, I’m usually up at 5 am with my kids, stay up all day without a nap and then go and work ALL.NIGHT.LONG from 7pm-7am. I used to drink diet caffeinated sodas and then I gave up the artificial sweeteners and I ran mostly on adrenaline…until now.
This stuff is seriously the best. Yea, I know it’s intended to be used while working out as it has B vitamins to turn carbs into fuel and electrolytes as well…but ya’ll know I DO NOT do caffeine while I’m running. So I DO love it for my night shifts. I can actually stay awake now with 40mg of caffeine per serving without have to eat insane amounts of sugar to keep me wired! It’s low cal AND no added sugars. The taste is nice and light and not too sweet. Thank you Nuun!
I have used almost all of the types of Nuun that they have available. I was sent the Nuun Energy and regular Nuun to try, but the All Day product I already had and use all of the time. I don’t know about you, but sometimes I have a hard time getting in all of my water during the day and I get bored with the taste! Enter Nuun All Day and voila! Your once boring water is a taste explosion! Not too sweet, it has a flavor like all of the rest, but a subtle flavor that keeps me drinking! So pick which one is right for you!
Hey, and if any of you lovely people at Nuun happen to be reading this, I MAY have submitted an application to become an ambassador, so…….let’s make it official since I already rave about you to everyone I know
OK, let’s get down to the nitty gritty…Nuun would also like to give one of my readers a tube of Nuun of your choice!! All you need to do is enter via the rafflecopter below!! And don’t forget there is still a few days left to enter my WIN detergent giveaway!! And not to give TOO much away…but a few of the products I talked about above….could be teasers for a 10 day Christmas giveaway coming in December….Not sayin’, but just sayin…..you do NOT want to miss that!
