J&A Gift Guide

Gift Ideas for the Endurance Athlete

It’s that time of year again! Long, slow base miles, indulging in off-season diets, and oh yes, trying to find that perfect present for the special endurance athlete(s) in your life.

Luckily for you, the folks at Jack & Adam’s have compiled a comprehensive list of creative gift ideas for anyone who likes to swim, bike, run. From bike computers to calendars, there is something for every athlete here at the shop!

First on the list is The Cute Commute Calendar featuring local Austin ladies who commute, ride, and race bicycles. Produced by J&A’s very own Marsha, the calendar also features two other lovely ladies of J&A, Michelle Garel and Angie Balentine. Support a local cause and for $15 you can give the gift of girls on bikes!

Another local charity selling calendars at J&A's is the Down Syndrome Association of Central Texas. Brad Pitt, Nolan Ryan, Andy Roddick and J&A owner Jack Murray will help you keep your days straight from now until next January.

And if you're in need of stocking stuffers, we have a plethora of nutritional items, so skip the candy canes and include chocolate mint Gu instead! Pack in some Tri Stickers and J&A water bottles for a stocking any triathlete will love.

Of course, there is the never fail, always appreciated Jack & Adam’s gift certificate! Charge it up with any amount from $5 to $10000!
