Christmas Gifts For Runners

Here it is, even after this year, nothing is going to cancel Christmas!
However, we do now have a little bit less time to shop for all our loved ones and friends.  With that in mind, we’ve crafted this little page to help you find some presents and stocking fillers for your running friends.  Whether they are a road or fell runner there are great picks for both in this section.


Stocking Fillers 

Looking for something small to fill a stocking or a gift for that little extra treat? 
There is not much better for many runners than having a brand new pair of socks to slip on your feet before you head out on your run.

What makes a great sock? First of all, it has to work. Get a sock that wicks and moves moisture away from the skin, this will make exercising more comfortable and reduce the likelihood of blisters. A sock that is comfortable is also really important, a good fabric will make the sock soft, some materials will even add warmth and reduce odour such as merino wool. 
Make sure the sock fits, get the right size for you and be careful as some will be sized differently depending on the brand. 

Navigation GIfts

We have as long as I can remember stocked Harvey Maps.  With over 35 years of experience in mapmaking, they really do know the business.

Having stocked their maps for years, we more recently have taken on board a selection of their mazzles  (Map zigsaws). Maps on the areas of the Peak District, Snowdon, Skye and the Cuillin and the Cairn Gorms to really test your knowledge of the areas and maps with these fantastic puzzles. 

Harvey Maps Peak District Mazzle >>

Peak District MAzzle

Just when you thought you had run out of ideas for gifts for your walking friends, HARVEY comes up with the MAZZLE – a map jigsaw of your favourite hills. The Peak District MAZZLE is a full colour jigsaw based on the renowned British Mountain Map, so the addictive walker can examine familiar terrain in detail in the winter evenings when deprived of hill walking.


Harvey Maps Snowdonia Mazzle >>

Snowdon Mazzle

MAZZLE – the distinctive 1000 piece map jigsaw puzzle from HARVEY of the beautiful Snowdonia national park.
 The Snowdonia MAZZLE is a full colour jigsaw based on the renowned Superwalker map, so the addictive walker can examine familiar terrain in detail in the winter evenings when deprived of hill walking.


Wanting something a little more challenging or further a field? We have other Mazzles which might just suit. Equally, if your friend lives elsewhere and you don’t think they know the Peak or Snowden area well enough then perhaps they will know one of the others better! You can find them Here!

Gift Vouchers

We understand it can be really hard to choose a present for someone at times. We’ve all been there, looking for hours on end and you just can’t decide what they want or need. No matter what it is you know they’ll love it, but sometimes it’s nice for them to be able to choose too, why not get them a voucher to put towards that new pair of shoes or that top they really want.
