Gift Guide for Athletes


If are searching for a gift for a runner (or want to upgrade your shoes), consider a shoe from Nike. The Vaporfly series is fast! When the Vaporfly 4% was introduced, it reportedly offered an average 4 percent running economy compared with other top running shoes.  

I spotted many runners wearing colourful Nike Vaporfly shoes when I ran the 5 km loop around Tokyo’s Imperial Palace in late 2019. And again, at the start line of the three-day Bermuda Triangle Challenge race in January 2020. Fortunately, I was wearing a pair too!


If it’s cold or wet outside, I prefer to ride indoors. And honestly, I look forward to riding inside now that I’m using the Rouvy Indoor Cycling App along with a Wahoo Smart Trainer. These two items are excellent gift ideas for cyclists. 

Year-round, Strava is a fun training partner. You can compete against yourself (running or cycling) or other people on the same route. The app offers training tools and the Strava Beacon safety tool. Strava Beacon provides friends and family private access to your live location while you exercise. Strava is currently offering a holiday promotion. If you purchase someone a year’s subscription, you’ll get two months free for yourself.

The Live the Adventure Club Gear Box  is a long-time favourite family birthday gift. And one that would be equally fun at Christmas or any other celebratory occasion. Each season, the lucky recipient receives a box packed with adventure and outdoor gear — it’s awesome!
