It may feel late in the game, but lucky for us delivery is faster than light these days meaning the many of us who have left things a little last minute are in luck. Christmas is creeping up on us, yes but there’s still time to bag a few of these TTH top picks for your bestie, brother or big boss!
There’s no order, or particular plan with how we’ve listed these, they are just a few favourite bits that we think might make a special gift…
Shorts you may say?! But it’s freezing! Well, yes it is, but it won’t be forever and spring races are fast approaching. These are our go-to shorts, the pair we pick up for every run. They are long enough not to rub, flattering on the fit and offer the perfect pocket for phone or keys. To be honest, there’s nothing we don’t love about the UA rush shorts. And hey, if you’re feeling generous pair it with the UA rush bra in pink!
If ever we’re dressing up, their jewellery is our go-to accessory/ies of choice. Their delicate designs and gorgeous details make them the perfect piece to wear both every day and for that special celebration. H’s personal favourite is the Gold Etherel Stacking Ring, and for E it’s the Silver Amazonite Huggie Earrings. What will you pick up for your pal?
Know someone who has completed a UK or Ireland based challenge? These guys formed a set of map art prints highlighting the terrain of local landscapes. The perfect way to remember every stride of a challenge when they glance up on their wall!
Ugly yes… hella comfortable yes! We won’t lie, we were not visually sold on Oofos however, once you try a pair on you will understand why they are raved about! Perfect to have in your post-race bag or to just wear around the house after a run. It’s a TTH thumbs up!
Again maybe a little rouge to suggest sunglass at Christmas time but hey ho! Wishful thinking and all that, right? We are huge fans of the Sierras for everyday adventure life and the Velans for seriously sunny runs (also our go-to for on the bike). Got a pal keen to tri in 2022? These could be just the gift!
Skin care built for athletic humans… yes please! The team at Premax pretty much have the whole range covered, from sun protection to anti-chafe. Plus, if like us you have pretty sensitive skin you’ll be chuffed to know this stuff is as kind on the body as it is smart.
We are not best known for our winter riding but each year we like to think we do get a little bit better at getting out on two wheels, even when it is cold! A real game-changer for this has been overshoes. They keep your toes toasty and dry… what a gift to give hey?!
(E is wearing the Giant version here but they are pretty much the same)
