How’s your week going? It’s been rainy and BLAH here in Charlotte. Tater doesn’t want to spend time outside but then she comes in soaked and muddy. But you can’t get mad at a face like this, can you?
And I find myself just wanting to curl up in bed with a book. But, I’m doing the Huntersville Half this weekend so I need to get out and run!
I find rainy weather rather appropriate for online shopping as well. So I figured it would be perfect to share with you some of the things on my list and things I’m hoping to buy for others this year.
The Bucket List Tummy inaugural gift guide:
For running, I love this tank! Seems like it would be perfect for a brewery run.
Essentials, right? Love this bamboo travel mug. It even comes with a tea infuser!
A standing desk is certainly on my list. With all the sitting I do for blog stuff and meeting with clients, I can’t wait to be able to stand more. Decrease some of the leg cramps, stretch out my muscles and improve posture!
Charlotte peeps – there’s a local company, X stand, that makes standing desks, and you can personalize it!
It seems that I have slippers on my list every year. I love warm slippers and there’s nothing better to mosey around the house in while I drink my coffee. For cute, affordable ones, I’m loving these and they have amazing reviews.
If you’re looking for a more all-purpose slipper, Mahabis are great too and so easy to slip on and off.
Feetures Socks. Well, not only for us runners, but for life itself! Feetures have a lifetime guarantee, meaning if you get a hole in one at any point, they will ship you a new pair for free!
Running Gloves. Now that winter is upon us, a sturdy, reliable pair of running gloves is important for the cold or rainy weather. These are made with wool so super warm and very breathable! I also just found these gloves, which are cute, wind resistant and reflective!
Mini Foam Roller. I’ve always had the big one, but I’m eyeing a mini one for some of my specific cramps and sore spots. Plus, they are so cute!
Stretching Bands. These were great for recovery and stretching during marathon training.
Fitbit Accessories. There are so many cute things on Funktional Wearables if you’re looking to spruce up your fitbit! I just heard of these guys through a random email but what a fun idea!
Self Care Items
Dependable Water Bottle
This one is on my list, probably because I love the color!
Hydration people! We underestimate how important water is for our bodies but it is a NUTRIENT! We NEED it to live. Plus, it helps us feel good, look good, and delivers nutrients to our bodies.
Massage gift card or membership
Also, Anything from Uncommon Goods! They have the most unique personalized gifts.
Hello Fresh, Blue Apron, or even local ones like The Produce Box. These are healthier meals that can make your life easier and more convenient. Remember that post about processed foods? Embrace the convenience, the pre-made, and the pre-measured options.
Or, if you’re more of an experience lover or giver, here are some of my favorite experience ideas…
Normally, cities have a bunch of tour options. They may have brew tours too!
Nutcracker, A Christmas Carol, or other plays/shows
Ed knows I am dying to go to the Nutcracker but I’m not sure it will work out with our schedules this year. These are classics worth seeing and great for a night out!
What’s one thing you’re looking forward to giving or getting this year?
