With Black Friday & Cyber Monday out the way, we're well and truly entering the festive period.
Your Facebook feed will soon be filled with decorated Christmas trees, while your Snapchat will definitely see stories related to Christmas jumpers.
I'm not afraid to admit it - I'm definitely one of those people that is difficult to buy for.
Here are a few of my reasoning thoughts:
- I don't think I need anything.
- I'm not sure I know what I want.
- I accidentally bought that myself earlier on this month.
- What about a voucher?
Can you relate to any of these?
I am, however, better at advising other people of potential gifts! If there's a runner in your family, Scimitar Shop is the perfect destination for your Christmas presents.
With rapid delivery, a few secret freebies in every December order and a product range that is sure to bring a smile to anyone's face, we've got you covered.
You don't need us to dive into heavy detail about the product quality. Our custom products are the UK's choice for running clubs, top charities and corporate companies; a quality that is replicated across our range of premium retail products.
Here's a breakdown of our top 5 2016 Christmas presents for runners. Let us know your thoughts!
Designed for those that run with a huge smile on their face, the Mr Happy Running Vest is finished in a vibrant yellow, with a host of premium features.
You'll find mesh side panels and flatlock stitching on this lightweight vest, offering an unrivalled level of comfort and ventilation. What's more, reflective panels sewn into the rear seams help enhance the safety of our running vest.
The most surprising element of this running vest? The price.
£24.95 gets you all of these premium features, along with an attractive and vibrant design. It certainly puts a smile on my face.
Now, we had to include this product as the polar-opposite of the above.
Do you know a runner who likes a good old moan? This product is sure to trigger the tiniest, smallest little grin!
As part of our new 2016 collection, the Mr Grumpy Running Vest benefits from our mesh side panels and reflective seams, providing comfort and safety when it matters the most.
Go on. Trigger a smile this Christmas, and join the many other Mr Grumpy's who will be wearing this vest in the new year!
Funky leggings are definitely in.
Our range of technical leggings are designed to offer enhanced technical performance while fitting in with fitness trends across the UK.
The newest products to join our range, the Little Miss Running Leggings benefit from an all over print, and make the perfect present for any fitness fanatic.
These leggings are perfect for yoga, cross-fit, running, pole-dancing and training in the gym - whatever the purpose, these technical leggings are sure to go down as a top-notch Christmas present.
A very popular product since we launched it in October 2016, gifting the Little Miss Chatterbox Running Vest offers a superb premium product for the runner, and a stark warning for other runners in the vicinity!
Featuring all of the premium features mentioned above, our close-fit womens cut offers a tighter fit under the arms, with a comfy fit across the bust and waist.
Finally, there's no escaping the fact that it's winter. As I write this blog, temperatures are plummeting to -3 degrees, and runners face additional challenges out on the road.
Designed to bounce light, our fluorescent running jacket is a brilliant product for ensuring safety during the winter months.
Made from a lightweight, windproof and waterproof fabric, the Scimitar Fluorescent Jacket is designed to offer a weather-resistant coat for runners without the prohibition of movement and freedom.
