lululemon gift ideas for runners:
Our favorite lululemon gifts for women
Fast and Free High-Rise Tight [Best lululemon leggings for running]
These lululemon leggings are specifically designed for running and are the go-to tights for running in mild weather.
The ‘nulux’ fabric used to make these running tights is lightweight, stretches in all directions, and tightly woven so that it’s durable and passes the all-important squat test. Plus, of course, the fabric is sweat-wicking and quick-drying.
They’re also great because they’re high-rise, which is not only a flattering fit but also helps keep the tights in place when you run – they don’t slip down, and they don’t ride up.
These running tights also feature thoughtfully-placed side pockets and five waistband pockets for carrying your phone and other essentials on the run.

Women’s Run For It All Beanie [lululemon running hat]
This lululemon running hat is ideal to keep your head warm, and hair out of your face when running or working out in cold weather.
This women’s running beanie is perfect if you wear your hair tied back as it features a ponytail portal!
Plus, it’s made from breathable fabric and features reflective details to help you be seen when running in low light.
Down For It All Jacket [A favorite lululemon running jacket for cold weather runs]
I received this lululemon Down For It All Jacket as a gift, and wear it ALL the time – and usually not even for running, because its so comfortable and warm.
Even though I wear it all the time, this jacket is designed for running in – it’s water-resistant, stretchy, made from super-soft fabric and has two of my favorite features for cold-weather running gear – reflective details and thumb-holes!
I often wear the Down For It All Jacket for cold winter trips out, it looks just as great with jeans as with running leggings.
If you’d prefer to choose a padded running vest instead, there is also a sleeveless version of this lulu running jacket, the Down For It All Vest – and the jacket and vest are available in men’s versions, too.
The Sculpt Tank Top [lululemon women’s running shirt]
The lululemon Sculpt Tank top is designed for running and training, with a flattering, non-clingy fit down to hip length, and soft, sweat-wicking, stretch fabric that you don’t even notice you’re wearing.
Additional details such as breathable mesh panels, vents and reflective highlights make this the perfect running top, to be worn by itself or layered under warmer layers in cold weather.
The Define Jacket [lululemon women’s jacket for active days and cool-downs]
Another classic lululemon jacket for women, the Define Jacket is designed for sweaty activities but is also great for everyday wear. While not specifically for running, it’s a great gift for active people.
I love that it comes in so many different color options and has such a close-fitting, flattering fit, which means it can be layered under a larger jacket or hoody.
I have this Lulu jacket in dark grey and it goes with everything!
Our favorite lululemon gifts for men
Metal Vent Tech Hoodie 2.0 [lululemon running shirt]
The men’s Metal Vent Tech Hoodie 2.0 is a running and workout top that was designed for sweating in! It’s the ultimate technical training hoodie, complete with ‘anti-stink’ technology.
This lululemon running shirt makes a great gift for guys who like to run but also dress athletically in their everyday life.
Because it’s so versatile in function, it’s (in our opinion), one of the best lululemon gifts for men who lead an active lifestyle.
The Metal Vent Tech Hoodie is available in a range of colors, from more subtle blacks, greys and navy, to bright tie-dye and block colors such as the red version, pictured.
Fast and Free Men’s Run Hat
This lululemon Fast and Free Men’s Run Hat is comfortable and sweat-wicking, perfect for running in. It also includes mesh lining with anti-stink properties and reflective details for running in low light conditions.
Even when the sun isn’t out, the cap helps keep rain and sweat from going in your eyes… plus it comes in a few different color options and looks great on.
Surge Lined Short [lululemon men’s running shorts]
These men’s lululemon running shorts, the Surge Lined Short, come in a wide choice of colors, from the more subtle darker colors to brights so you can see them coming a mile away!
They’re specifically designed for running, with lightweight, stretchy, breathable, sweat-wicking fabric, and a relaxed fit for freedom of movement.
Plus, the polyester used to make these shorts is 100% recycled.
Available in both 6 and 4 inch lengths, and because they are already lined, there’s no need to pair them with underwear.
The Active Jacket [lululemon men’s water repellent jacket]
The Lulu Active Jacket is the perfect water repellent, breathable jacket for running and generally being active outdoors in rainy conditions, with a stowable hood, phone pocket and reflective detail.
This lululemon jacket is super-versatile for running from Fall, through Winter, and into Spring.
The Active Jacket is also great for other activities such as hiking and traveling as it’s so lightweight, so you know it will see a lot of miles and adventures.
lululemon running gloves for men
These lightweight, fleece-lined men’s running gloves are perfect for cold weather runs, as well as everyday winter wear.
The fabric on the back of the hand is water-repellent and breathable, while the fabric on the palm is water-repellent stretchy fleece, with a grippy silicone pad.
We love that the Cold Terrain Gloves are available in grey and blue colorways in addition to the classic black option.
lululemon accessories for runners
The Fast and Free Run Belt [lululemon running belt]
A running belt is great for those runs where you need to take a few essentials, like your phone, keys and a card – plus a few snacks, and don’t need to wear a full race vest.
We appreciate that lululemon’s Fast and Free Run Belt zips up fully to keep your stuff safely stashed, and also includes a clip for your keys.
This running belt is designed to be worn with the phone pocket at either the front or the back and would make a great gift for anyone who loves to run!
Plus, as a bonus, it’s also great for traveling and festivals when you want to keep small valuables close to you in a crowd.
This lululemon running belt is also definitely one of the best things to buy at lululemon if you don’t know your gift recipient’s exact size, plus, it’s available in a range of great colors (as well as black and camo black, pictured).
Release and Recover Ball Set [Post-run massage and recovery]
If you’re not sure what running apparel to choose then consider buying a gift card, or a running accessory that will be super-useful, such as this recovery massage ball set, which is designed to help with massaging tight muscles in areas such as your legs, back, hip and soles of your feet, post-run, and makes a great addition to any runner’s gym bag.
