Black Friday Deals and Holiday Gift Ideas for Runners

If you are looking for Black Friday deals and holiday gift ideas for runners and athletes, you’ve come to the right place!    I woke up to an inbox filled with discounts and deals, so I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you! I’ve also included some other gift ideas that may not have a Black Friday deal, but I love them so much, I just had to share!

Gifts under $25

Group of bracelets in different colors with inspirational sayings on them


It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Momentum Jewelry. You might even say I’m a little obsessed! I love their Motivate Wraps and Foot Notes the most, but their mySpark and Mini Spark bracelets are also very cute! You can customize your wrap with your own motivational words, which makes for a unique gift idea. Today only, save 50% on your entire order. The discount will automatically be applied at checkout.


Four pairs of sunglasses in different colors and styles

Another great gift idea is Knockaround Sunglasses. They come in lots of great styles and fun colors, and they are so affordable, you can buy multiple pairs to match multiple running outfits. Shop the Black Friday sale for 30% off of all sunglasses, or 20% off of apparel, goggles, custom shop, and goods. Plus, as part of the Black Friday sale, everyone gets free shipping!

13 pairs of knee-high compression socks in multiple colors and patterns


Compression socks also make great gifts, and like the bracelets and sunglasses, a runner can never have too many! My go-to for running and recovery are from PRO Compression. They have lots of great products including my favorite, the Marathon Compression Socks. There are so many fun colors and patterns to choose from, including many holiday-themed styles. Shop the Black Friday sale and use code BF21 at checkout for 64% off of your entire order. Get free shipping on U.S. orders totaling $99 and above.

My favorite running belt company, SPIBelt, is having a BOGO sale! Now through Cyber Monday, buy any belt and get a limited edition belt for 50% off. Once the sale is over, the limited edition belts will no longer be available. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, they come in multiple styles and colors. Shop early for the best selection!

Gifts between $25 and $50

Runners love being outdoors year-round, but being cold can easily make for a miserable run! Check out these awesome Flip Mittens from Turtle Gloves. They can be used to keep the hands warm with the fingers exposed in milder weather, but once the really cold weather hits, with a simple flip they can be converted into mittens to fully cover the entire hand. I reviewed these on my blog earlier this year if you’d like to read a little more about them.

And speaking of the cold, this Trailblazer Ponytail Hat from TrailHeads is absolutely amazing! I was gifted a hat by the company and I absolutely love it. It’s made of super-soft and stretchy polyester/spandex fleece, and the sides flip up or down to expose or cover the ears. The best feature is the ponytail opening in the back. When not in use, you can’t even tell it’s there. I also love the baseball cap-style that includes a bill to help keep the sun, snow, or rain out of my eyes. They also have a men’s version, sans ponytail opening. For Black Friday, use code SAVE5 for $5 off of orders $50+ or SAVE15 for $15 off of orders $100+.

Gifts between $50 and $100

Black running tights on a turquoise background

Brooks Running has multiple sales across its site. These Momentum Thermal Tights are a must for winter running. They are made of a stretchy, comfortable fabric, but also provide lots of support. They are great by themselves or can be worn layered for those super-cold runs.Man wearing teal colored long sleeve shirt against a turquoise background

Shopping for a guy? This Notch Thermal Hoodie would make the perfect gift! And the best part of all? Thumb holes!!!

Women's running shoe in gray and pastel pink

If you happen to know your runner’s favorite running shoe, a new pair makes a great gift! I’ve been running in Asics Gel-Kayanos since I first started running. Since running shoes can be pricey, I like to wait until the new model comes out, and then buy last year’s model at a significant discount (lots of brands do this). The Gel-Kayano 28 is out, which means you can get the 27 for $99.95 (regularly priced $160). As an added bonus, you can join OneASICS for free, and save $30 on orders of $200+. I might have bought three pairs.

Gifts over $100

Small black earbud headphones with black carrying case

I’ve tried multiple brands of headphones over the years, and Jaybirds are one of my favorites. I’ve been recommending Jaybirds since publishing my first holiday gift guide in 2017. If you are a fan of earbuds, these active noise cancellation earbuds are a great deal! Regularly priced at $199, the Vista 2 Totally Wireless Sport Headphones are on sale for $129. They have a 24-hour battery life and are IP68 waterproof and sweatproof. Shipping is free, and no discount code is needed.


My other favorite brand of headphones are AfterShokz. Using bone-conduction technology, these open-ear headphones are perfect for solo-runners wanting to stay aware of their surroundings while out for a run. Read my reviews of the Trekz Air, Xtrainerz, and Aeropex on my site. Now through Cyber Monday, save $20 to $30 on their Aeropex, Air, OpenMove, or OpenComm styles. They offer free shipping and free returns, along with a 45-day risk-free trial.

Did you read my review of the Fluid Running System? In a shocking development, not everyone likes running outside in the winter! This innovative product allows runners to get a great workout by running in place in a pool or deep water. It’s the perfect way to run year-round without braving the elements. The full H2Go System includes instructional videos, four Fluid Running audio Workouts, a flotation belt, a waterproof (IPX7) bluetooth headset, and a tether (if needed to keep you in place). Find it on sale on the Fluid Running website.
