80 Gift Ideas for Runners

From Holographic Runner Headsets to Fitness-Tracking Smart Socks

— December 23, 2020 — Eco
This list of gift ideas for runners will bring joy and practicality to those who enjoy the activity. This holiday season, these concepts are sure to impress as many brands explored new innovations and technology. One of the standout gift ideas is the 'Ghost Pacer' running trainer that allows those to participate in a virtual race with other runners.

This allows people to connect with one another at a safe distance through all that we've gone through this year. The headset uses holographic technology to race their opponents. Another great gift is the Sensoria Core socks that helps those simply track their steps, their calories, overall speed, and much more. It connects with devices using Bluetooth technology and offers real-time data collection.
