Ok, so let me get this straight.

Valentine's Day is just days away and you haven’t gotten your special someone a gift?!

For it was just Christmas and the days of straight up B-R-O-K-E are finally behind you. And the New Year’s resolution of keeping fit has prompted you to sign up for 6 races you and your runner have made a pact to do over the next 6 months!

And now Valentine's Day is here. Sorry, there is no off-season in spoiling your loved one. It’s year round. At least that’s the argument I go with when talking my husband into buying something for me. Can’t say it works every time. Shucks!

While you may feel consumerism is behind all the hoopla of this holiday, you just can’t show up empty handed. Your runner deserves a little something for all the hard work she’s endured through training.

Well ol’ Marissa here is going to break things down for you. Here are a few of our favorite things that will surely win her heart over:

1. Love, and Give Back

Head on over to our IG @EndureJewelry and place a bid on our newest trademarked Smiley face designs, our Run Lover tank! These are SO limited that we only have 7 available for "purchase". They aren't listed on our website this year but we have 7 up for auction til tomorrow as we help our friend, Marathon Goddess, raise awareness for pancreatic cancer and cheer her on to complete her 100th marathon! Feel the love, and share the love this Valentine's Day, by participating in this fun event!

2.Something Practical

Ok, listen here: she NEEDS this. She doesn’t know yet that she needs this, but guaranteed she needs this. TRUST. Don’t tell me the things we want are not the things we need, because I’m pretty sure my want for this bracelet slash hair tie disguiseis a necessity in the running world. Us girls are infamous for wearing those little black hair ties on our wrist. We gotta be ready to throw down at a moments notice if we see a starting line and a race clock. Here’s a way to make this hair tie look a little less obvious and a lot more stylish.

3.Something Memorable

It’s like a medal….but not. Stay with me. Commemorate her race accomplishment with any of our race distance jewelry. Rings, earrings, and necklaces--alpha numeric or roman numeral. It’s like stylish bragging rights without having to haul her medal everywhere. She’ll wear her race distance proud because dang it, she did it!

4.Something Meaningful

Necklace & earring and earring & ring combos. I call it the twofer - two gifts in one. While they are sold separately, if you want to double the kudo points, buy one and then buy the matching necklace, ring, or earrings! We offer several styles that are running inspired and have some meaning behind them. Examples:

Roadrunner – For runners who strive for fast speeds. Necklace/ Earrings

Tortoise & the Hare – Slow and steady wins the race. Necklace/Earrings/ Ring

Running Wings – “And my God give us the wings of angels so that we can fly.” Earring/Ring (p.s. These earrings happen to be the Endure Jewel of the Week! Enjoy 25% Off through 2/13/16)

5.Something Unique

Okay, how cool is this? You can have a necklace made of her running!! I kid you not. Send in a side-profile photo of your runner and designer, Sunny, will turn it into a necklace. I’m more of a Phoebe from the sitcom Friends when I run, but you know what, I’m proud of it! Put that on a necklace and call it a day!

6.Something Disney

Disney. Need I really say more? NO, I do not. A true Disney fan will understand. A princess deserves a crown and a castle, right? While I don’t recommend buying an actual crown and castle (unless she’s into that and you have that kind of money), I think she’ll be just as happy with our smaller versions. Our Run Princess Crown ring and our Run Castle Necklace. How fitting for your running princess!

7.Something that will for sure guarantee you not becoming a resident of the dog house

Want to really set the bar high amongst your friends? Jubilee ring is where it is at. Pronounced joo-bi-lee. Well let me say that is bee-you-tea-ful. It’s twenty-six glorious, genuine diamonds representing the miles of a marathon. Bling bling, baby!

8.Something nerdy

Nothing speaks more to the heart than a Star Wars inspired gift. At least that’s what my inner Stars Wars nerd tells me. Our Galaxy hoodie has been an absolutely hit with our fans and we only have a few left! Pretty sure it’s because the sleeves have light sabers on them. Light. Sabers. Fun level: 10.

9.Something that reflects her heart

Bless your running heart, my love! That’s what you’ll say when you gift to her one of these rings. “Live Love Run” said so simply, but it’s every runner’s anthem. Does she live and breathe the sport? Then our Run Beat ring is the perfect gift. It’s a heartbeat rhythm that reads the word “run”.

10. Something she collects

Start a ‘build-a-bracelet” for her so she can continue to add commemorative pieces as she completes races. We have both charm bracelet and bead bracelet styles. This gift doubles as a motivator for her and a go-to gift for you! Think about it. You’re set for every Valentine's Day here on out, because she’s going to want to keep accomplishing race goals so that she can continue to add to her bracelet. I see this as an easy way out for you for all future Valentines, knowing exactly what to get her every year. #winning

There you have it. Now go be that amazing supporter every runner dreams of having! Happy Valentines Day to you and your favorite runner!

Marissa
