If you love a runner girl, you probably have already figured out she is not like other girls. She runs long distances for fun. She gets up earlier on the weekends for her long run than she does for work every day and eats carbs like it’s her job. She’s tough, but kind, has confidence, but is sweet, and is an individual, but inclusive. Running breeds a particular type of girl that’s hard not to love (if I do say so myself).
Runners are determined, strong and giving. So if you want to buy your runner girl a Valentine’s Day gift that shows you understand her unique passions, it’s best to pass up the traditional Valentine’s Day gift and get her something that she’ll actually love.

A RACE MEDAL DISPLAY
A TRUE RUNNER’S JEWELRY BOX
While most girls would love a fancy jewelry box to hold their special jewelry that you’ll surely give her throughout the years, a runner girl would likely prefer the gift of a race medal hanger to display the “jewelry” she earns. Bonus points for customizing it just for her.
GIVE HER THE WORLD THROUGH ROSE COLORED LENSES
Instead of a rose, gift her the world through rose-colored running sunglasses with polarized lenses.
A RUNNER GIRL’S BEST FRIEND
Look, I’m sure if you want to buy your runner girl a diamond ring she wouldn’t throw it back in your face. It’s true that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but when diamonds aren’t appropriate, a runner girl’s best friend is a new pair of running shoes. Your best bet is to take her on a shopping spree to her favorite local running store to guarantee a perfect fit.
WIRELESS SPORT HEADPHONES
FOR HER RUNNER EARS
Most girls would love earrings for Valentine’s Day to dress up her ears, but a runner girl may prefer a more motivational gift. Perk up her ears with these sleek wireless headphones to power her runs.
A SPORTS BRA
THE RUNDERWEAR SHE’LL LOVE
While lingerie is a typical Valentine’s Day gift, you may not be dealing with an ordinary girl. Forgo the traditional and give her a gift she’ll wear close to her heart.
A GPS WATCH WITH A HEART RATE MONITOR
WHEN HER HEART BEATS FOR YOU
Give the traditional watch gift back to 1995 and delight her with what she wants. I’m sure nothing makes her heart soar like when you walk into the room, but a runner girl will appreciate a great GPS watch with a heart rate monitor. Her heart will skip a beat with this Valentine’s Day gift.
SHE WON’T WINE ABOUT THIS GIFT
Runners and wine go together like peanut butter and energy gels. Help her drink in moderation with this wine glass sure to help her relax after a race celebration.
A RUNNING SWEATSHIRT
LET HER KNOW YOU COULDN’T KEEP UP IF YOU WANTED TO
If she runs like a girl, that’s a good thing. She’ll appreciate the reminder that you know you probably couldn’t keep up if you wanted to. She can wear this to lounge while her running clothes are in the wash.
YOU CAN’T GO WRONG WITH CHOCOLATE
You can’t go wrong with a box of chocolates for a runner, but a chocolate GU pack is a thoughtful addition to your traditional heart of chocolates, to show you really understand her love of running. (Yes, that means buy the chocolates too.)
Nothing says love like a thoughtful gift that shows you really care. You’re lucky if she loves you as much as she loves to run.
Happy Valentine’s Day, friends! Wishing you a day full of love of running.
