Hello! Do you have special people in your lives whom are expecting a baby? Do they also happen to be runners? Not sure what to get them? Well, you’re in luck! I’m here to show you something that I recently put together for 2 very close friends of mine! They absolutely adored it!
Top left: I purchased this adorable personalized race bib onesie from a seller on Etsy. The number I chose has meaning behind it. A while back, I asked dad-to-be what his favorite numbers were (didn’t say why I was asking), and then I combined them into one number.
Top right: Dad is a marathoner, so I had to purchase this onesie from Gone For A Run. They have the best gifts!
Bottom left: I also got this shirt from Gone For A Run! They had awesome deals at the time. Plus, what runner doesn’t love a fresh change of clothes?
Bottom right: Obviously, the most important thing a runner-to-be should own is a good pair of shoes! Saucony has the cutest little baby shoes!
Next, I thought about some important items that runners use and/or need. I then translated them into baby world, and here’s what I came up with!
Top left: Baby Blanket (HEAT SHEET after a race).
Top middle: Sunglasses (for those sunny runs and to keep bugs from flying into your eyes).
Top right: Waffle Teether (carb loading is a common thing for distance runners).
Middle left: Boogie Wipes (to control those snot rockets).
Middle: Gerber Banana Puffs (we all know that runners love bananas – a staple at races).
Middle right: Baby Socks (next to shoes, socks are crucial).
Bottom left: Butt Paste (one word: chaffing).
Bottom middle: Baby Bottle (runners need to stay hydrated).
Bottom right: Rattles (celebrate every moment).
I put everything into a basket that can be reused (P is for their last name). And I purchased a custom running medal from eBay, which replaced the need for a bow or ribbon. I thought it would be a cute touch to the theme of the gift!
So, there you have it! A perfect gift for the little runner-to-be in your life!
