Gifts Under $50 Running Moms Will Love

Gifts Under $50 Running Moms Will Love

Mom is the one person who is always there to support and encourage others through life's challenges. Whether she has been a lifelong runner or she has recently taken up running, you want to do whatever you can to support and encourage her when she heads to the track or trail. Whether in honor of Mother's Day or just because, it's not hard to find gifts that running moms will love and appreciate. Focus on affordable running accessories that keep mom comfortable, hydrated, and motivated.

  1. Race Registration: Offer to register mom for her favorite 5K or 10K race. The majority of 5K and 10K events keep registration fees under $50, which means that a race registration is a fantastic practical gift idea. If you want to find a list of upcoming 5K or 10K events near you and mom, check the "Race Finder" at Runner's World. Cost: Ranges from approximately $25 to $50
  1. Run's Done Sports Towel Seat Cover: Running moms won't have to sit in a sweaty and uncomfortable car seat if they have a machine washable sports towel seat cover. Made with soft moisture-wicking microfiber suede fabric, the Run's Done sports towel seat cover will keep her seat clean and dry no matter how hard she's worked out. There's no slipping or sliding either because the seat cover is backed with clever non-slip drops that hold it firmly in place on leather or cloth. Cost: $34.95
  1. Run's Done Vacuum Insulated Water Bottle: Make sure mom stays hydrated before, during and after her runs by giving her a vacuum insulated water bottle to bring along her favorite sports drink. This BPA-free, non-toxic and lead-free water bottle is made of high quality stainless steel that keeps drinks cold for 24 hours or hot for 12 hours. Even after hours in the car, this water bottle will provide mom with a cool, refreshing post-run hydration solution. Cost: $19.95
  1. Foam Roller: If mom doesn't have a foam roller yet, this gift would make a great addition to her running warm up and recovery routine. The use of a foam roller can help improve mom's circulation and mobility pre-run, while also aiding in faster recovery after she goes that extra mile. Find a foam roller in mom's favorite color. Cost: Ranges from approximately $15 to $40
  1. Personal Item Belt: If you've heard mom lament the fact that she doesn't have a convenient place to stash her car keys or headphones while running, look for a lightweight personal item belt. Find one that is moisture-resistant and that has a zipper to securely hold items inside. Cost: Ranges from approximately $20 to $40

Now that you have a list of gifts under $50 that running moms will love, pick up a few extras to have handy for other special occasions or to surprise her when she completes her next marathon.
