Whether you are buying for someone doing their first tri or their 100th, this gift guide will have your triathlete smiling swim, bike, and run.

Remember, it is best to leave items such as shoes, goggles, and bike saddles for the giftee to pick out. If these items are on their top want list though, you may opt for a gift card or make sure the items are returnable.

If you’re looking for something not exactly sports-related but could really benefit the athelete you know, you could perhaps Buy CBD oil online or other oils that could aid in relaxation, muscle soreness, and recovery. If you know that they will be happy with any gift that you get them though, then you could always opt to get them a techy item from somewhere like Coolest Gadgets, they have loads of great fitness technology things, so you might find something really cool and unusual that your friend will love!

Still unsure? A useful tip is to pay attention to what your triathlete friend does alongside their training and races. For example, there are many triathletes out there who are into filming, photography, blogging, and vlogging. These athletes often record their workouts or the amazing places they visit when going to a triathlon course. In that case, something like a 4k filming drone from sites like www.drdrone.ca could make a perfect gift for them. Go have a look on youtube to see how other athletes go about filming themselves and pick out something good to suit the athlete you know.

But if you need a bit more guidance on a sporty idea to get for your friend though, then keep on reading. We’ve compiled a few must-haves, even for the triatheletes who have everything!
