Bib & Medal Displays

The perfect gift for runners! These medal and bib displays will give your runner mom a place to show off all of her bling from those races. She can keep her race bibs in the display as well, providing a really convenient place to store all those memories. If your mom has put in the work to complete one race or many, give her a place to show off her medals. Here are a few of my favorites!

Running Accessories

Sometimes the most thoughtful gifts are those specific to the recipient’s hobbies and needs. Running accessories are a great gift for any running moms and the perfect way to show your support of them in this upcoming training season. These Nathan running accessories will prove useful and convenient during this hot running season ahead.

Bib Folio

If your mom already has a space for her bling, this Bib Folio is a great idea. This will give her a place to store those bibs that she doesn’t want to throw away, but still doesn’t know what to do with. I love these Bib Folios because they are a simple way to keep your bibs easily accessible, while keeping them organized and looking cute. These make a useful, surprising Mother’s Day running gift for anyone.

The RunnerBox

Whether you’re wanting to send an one-time surprise, or a gift that keeps on giving each month – The RunnerBox is perfect for runners of every ability and fitness level. Each box contains carefully and purposefully selected items designed to help runners fuel and stay motivated.

If you’re gifting a box on Mother’s Day, your mother runner will receive a box packed full of running gear and endurance nutrition that will keep her excited and motivated to train. Examples of items from the current box:

  • Ultima Replenisher
  • AMG Snacks Energy Bites
  • Chargel Gel
  • Verb Caffeinated Bars
  • GFB Pop Up Oatmeal Bowl
  • Honey Stinger Chews
  • Barebells Protein Bar
  • Klean Freak Body Wipes
  • Sweat Athletix Laundry Sheets

RunnerBox has something for everyone — send a one-time gift box for $38, or gift a subscription of monthly boxes, starting at $36 per box. Running gift boxes are an awesome way to stay motivated through every training season, and perfect for beginners to advanced runners alike.

Running Jewelry

All women love jewelry, and no doubt your mother runner does too. Finding her a unique piece of jewelry like the ones below will help her celebrate her hobby. These earrings, necklaces, and bracelets are a great way to show off her hobby in style.

If your running mom loves to cook, then these two cookbooks couldn’t be more perfect for her. There’s nothing she’ll love more than combining two things she loves! Both of these cookbooks are filled with delicious healthy recipes for runners. These meals will keep her fueled and strong to continue logging all those miles.

Running Mugs

If your mom is anything like mine, she loves her coffee. This coffee mug and tumbler will keep her coffee warm while representing her hobby. Coffee is a necessity before those long runs, so help her drink her coffee in style and stay motivated while doing so.

Recovery Shoes

These shoes are a gift your runner mom may not even know she needs – until she tries them. If your mom has a race coming up or is training for long distances, these shoes will offer her the perfect amount of comfort for recovery after all those miles. These are easy to slip on after a race, or at home and outside when the weather is warm. This is an incredibly useful Mother’s Day gift for runners.

Running Socks

All runners need plenty of socks, and most runners know that it’s impossible to have too many. Inspire your runner mom to continue logging miles with these cute, comfortable socks. Not only are these socks stylish, they’ll keep her feet comfortable and chafe free in the sweaty season ahead.

Running Shirts

There are so many to choose from, but these are some of my favorites! Give your mom a Mother’s Day gift that is unique to her and her personality. There are so many different fun sayings on these shirts. Celebrate her half marathon or marathon accomplishments, her love of coffee, craziness, or anything in between. There is a perfect shirt for every running mom!
