2016 Holiday Gift Guide

Its that time of year again the Holiday season is upon us and if you're in need of a few gift ideas look no further than Rhode Runner. We put together a little guide to help you along. 


The Garmin Forerunner 35 is the latest and greatest running watch from Garmin. We love this watch because while it gives you all you need (wrist-based heart rate, distance, pace, calories, steps, smart phone notifications, music control and much more) its also simple to use. Simple. We like that.


Like running in a blanket the Nike Therma Sphere 1/2 zip features Nike's Dri-Fit Technology. The inside of this awesome top features a brushed fleece polyester fabric is designed to keep you dry and warm this winter.  With 360 Degrees of reflectivity you'll be safe out there on those early morning or late evening runs. Our favorite part...built in Mittens. Yup Mittens.  



Mizuno is by far one of our favorite brands when it comes to Winter Running. Without a doubt it is the number one brand of Rhode Runner Staff. The reason? It heats up with moisture, yeah as you sweat and the garment pulls moisture from your skin it is heating up. It sounds like magic but we assure you it is just the Breath Thermo fabric doing its thing. This base layer fits a little snug but is an awesome peice to put under any running jacket or 1/2 zip. 


Reflective? Check. Warm? Check. Moisture Wicking? Yup. Cook ya breakfast? Well no...but they are a fantastic running tight at a great price. Does it get better? No. Do you want us to stop asking questions? Yeah....Alright. Anyway we absolutely loved these tights when they came in and there are a few staff members running around town in them for sure! 


Designed for the those who'd rather hit the treadmill this time of year, or sip a cup of coffee at the Coffee Exchange this cotton/poly blend is the perfect shirt for working out or hanging out. Plus bonus, you can rep the Rhode when you're out on the town. It comes in four great colors with mens and womens specific sizes so its perfect for anyone in the fam. 



Waterproof where it needs to be and breathable everywhere else this jacket is our go to shell for the winter months. When it starts to rain and get sloppy out there, you won't worry, you'll be dry and warm. Isn't that awesome? It also features 360 degrees of reflectivity and fits great. Does it get better than that? We don't think so. 




You ever hear that during the winter months all the heat escapes through your head? Not with this thing on! It'll keep that head nice and toasty. Cover up those ears in style look cool, stay warm and have yourself a great run! 



The perfect glove. Simple as that. Its warm enough without being to bulky. Its a polyester blend so it'll keep your hands dry. Its reflective. Its bright. You can use the phone with them on. You can hold onto things. My favorite part...its got a nose wiper on the thumb! So yeah. The perfect glove. 




The latest and greatest from Saucony! Featuring their brand new EVERRUN midsole its got cushioning for days. Lightweight, breathable, super cushy and yet super responsive it doesn't get much better than that. With their awesome Iso Fit Upper you won't even think you've got a shoe on. No seriously, its that good. 


Remember the days when you'd be grumpy your grandma gave you socks for Christmas? Well clearly your Grandma was not a runner. If she was she may have given you a set of these puppies. The Balega Mohair Sock is a bit warmer than other socks and does an awesome job of moving moisture to keep your feet dry and dry feet are happy feet. Mohair is great. Elton John had a whole suit of it. 

So thats it for Holiday Gift Guide this year! But there are plenty more awesome gift ideas at the rhode that you can check out this season.  Just ask your friendly Rhode Runner Associate when you stop in. We hope to see you soon!
