Gift Guide for the Geeky Travel Runner

Why the Gift Guide for the Geeky Travel Runner?

Welcome to my world right now.

Hi, I’m Shenanigans, and I’m a new fangirl.

(Hi, Shenanigans!)


I’m a bit of a deep-ender when it comes to new endeavors.  This means my world and focus can change quickly, but when I find something I like, I commit hard to it.

Like the Avengers, Star Wars, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  I swoon anytime Coulson or Agent May enters the scene.

So this is my world right now.  It’s a little geeky, a little runner-y and involves a bit of travel.  I’m embracing all three areas for this year’s gift guide.

Sure, I could tell you what a runner wants, what they really, really want (sing it like a Spice Girl, please), but I have a feeling we all know what those basic needs are:  shoes, the new Garmin, and unlimited PTO/air miles for racecations.


I decided to go a little different.  This guide is for the slightly nerdy travel runner in us all.

Okay, so it’s actually my “Dear Santa” list for family and friends.  But I suspect I’m not alone in my geeky tendencies, and hopefully you’ll find something here you’d love as well.

This list is going to cover some travel, running, and some non-running suggestions.


Tahitiland: It’s a Magical Place

Claire wore this shirt to Disneyland last week and it was a HUGE hit.



Many of you asked where we got it from: here you go.

Redbubble has… well, EVERYTHING. It’s all so cool. If you are looking for something clever, look here!




What gets nerdier than proper grammar? Nothing.

If you have a student or a blogger in your world, consider the gift of Grammarly. If you are looking for a job online, consider this as a gift to yourself.

It will help check for spelling, sentence structure, and proper grammar- and will save you the embarrassment of a mistake. It’s so worth the cost!


The Presents of the Force

I die.

How cute are these Christmas shirts from Modcloth? Perfect for the Star Wars fan in all of us, and really, doesn’t that include ALL of us?





I (still) want one. That is all.


Star Wars Headphones

I’m a Rebel, let me rock out like one. Let’s go Rogue One!

You can also choose Boba Fett, the Empire, and Storm Troopers.

These are noise canceling headphones, with a mic and a removable cord for storage. Perfect for long car trips or flights with the family that you love oh so much… but still need to tune out. Not that I know anything about that.

Avengers Ugly Christmas Long-Sleeve Shirt

You can save your money if you were shopping for me: I already bought this one.

In fact, I wore it this past weekend at the Avengers 10K. I’ve never had so many shouts of “where did you get your shirt?” on a race course as I did wearing this one!


I spied it on the 5K course of the Avengers Half Weekend and knew I *needed* it in my life.

The Gift of Travel

It’s always on my list! It should be on yours, too.

See a new place, experience a new race, and meet new people. This would can be a little smaller if you go and experience it. Should your travels include

Should your travel wishes include a runDisney event or a Disney trip, I’d love to help. Let me know what we can do to work together to make some magic happen.

  1. I am considering asking for a new Garmin, but the one I have still works pretty well so not sure I can justify a new one. I also think it would be really fun to have a Go Pro!

  2. Ooh, the flux capacitor charger — I think Mr. Judy just might need that!

  3. I think I’m the only runner on earth who has a GoPro I do not use. My bad. Very bad.

  4. I think Go Pros are so cool! I don’t know if there is a need for me to have one. But who wouldn’t love one?

  5. It’s not a Christmas gift, but my mom and I want to see Rogue One. Its first weekend is when I’m driving up to Colorado, so we’ll see it after Christmas.

  6. I love your gift ideas! I’m not even into the Marvel universe but that sweater is pretty cool! I would love a Go Pro!

  7. My son would flip over that Captain America backpack! So cute!

  8. I want a Go Pro, too! And a better Garmin. And an iPhone 7. Better add winning lottery ticket…
    Fun link-up topic, thanks!

  9. I guess I need to turn in my Geek Card as nothing on your list excites me other than the GoPro…
