25 stocking stuffers for runners

My husband and I have this debate at Christmas every.single.year…

My job is to stuff everyone’s stockings: my husband’s and my three daughters’, while my husband’s ONLY Christmas job (besides buying me a gift) is to stuff MY stocking. He always says he has no idea what to get me, while I argue that there are TONS of things to stuff in a runner’s stocking, one visit to a running store would be enough.  And every year, on Christmas Eve I find out that he didn’t get me anything, so I run around the house finding things that the kids don’t know that I already have so that I can put on a good show:

“Oh wow, look! Santa brought me an entire stocking of loose pony-tail elastics!”

Sound familiar?

So this year I thought I would make Santa’s job easy so that Mrs Claus doesn’t end up with yet another stocking full of recycled items…

Here are 25 Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Runners:
