So, I'm looking for a gift for my mom, a runner. I hate running, so I have no idea what runners use/like/need. That said, I like to support her endeavors, and my stepdad's gift are all bike-related, so I thought I'd get her a runner...thing.

But what?

It's her third-tier gift (not the big gift, and not the second-biggest gift), so i'm looking for something relatively inexpensive (no HR monitors) that is still useful. When I asked her for ideas, she said "socks", but come on. Socks? Really? I was kind of hoping for something a little more fun.

So, dear runners, what kind of running gifts do you love getting?
