Buying a gift for a triathlete can seem as hard as taking part in the event itself. But worry not. Wiggle is here with some awesome ideas to brighten up the Christmas morning of your favourite ironman or ironwoman.
With three sports to choose from, you’d think gift buying for a triathlete would be easy but, because most tri-fans come with a certain level of expertise and accomplishment, it’s a daunting world for the uninitiated.
So, to make it a little smoother for the gifter (that’s you), we’ve looked through the huge Christmas store live on Wiggle right now, and assessed the best from the rest, picking the top five gifts that can’t go wrong.
What all triathletes share is drive, ambition, and a strong will, and each of our gifts should help them make training a little easier or give them that important little advantage to finish a few places higher.
Then again, if you’re a triathlete and you’re here just to have a look around, maybe we can inspire you to pick up a few things you may not have thought of before.
If you don't see anything below that sparks Christmas joy, then check out Wiggle's full Christmas store with hundreds of gift ideas for the sport star in your life.
