Do you have a Mudder who’s been known to go head-first through Kiss of Mud with a go-pro strapped to their heads? This gift list is for them. These gifts may be on the pricey side, but can you really put a price on the face of a Mudder opening a gift that let’s ‘em know you just get ‘em? Rhetorical question.
1. Go Pro Hero5 Session
Know a Mudder who’s been dreaming of going through Artic Enema with a camera that can get in on the action? This little guy is the one your Mudder will want when size matters. All they have to do is wear it, mount it, and love it.
2. Cord Taco
With all those cords jammed into your backpack, 20% of your techies’ time is spent untangling wires, earbuds, and USBs. But now you’re here to the rescue with a wallet for cords, or a cord taco if you will. This little guy is giving a new meaning to #TacoTuesday. And it’s leather, so it’s fresh-to-death.
3. Echo Dot
OCR are the best sport, but this hockey-puck shaped device is your new virtual assistant. Alexa, how many days until my next Tough Mudder? Alexa, how do I download the Tough Mudder training guide? Alexa, what should I eat before, after, and during my Tough Mudder training? The Q’s you can ask are endless. Oh, and thanks to integration with Amazon Prime Music, Spotify Premium, Pandora, TuneIn, iHeartRadio, and Audible, you can also use the Echo Dot to stream music throughout your home while you’re watching Tough Mudder Bootcamp Live.
These thumb-sized buds will change the way you listen to music. And they’re basically magic. Seriously, whenever you pull your AirPods out of the charging case, they instantly turn on and connect to your iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, or Mac. Next generation, are we right? Add some tech-fashion to your techies ears, they’ll thank you.
5. Anker USB Port

On the other, you’ll find four USB 3.0 ports, effectively expanding what you can plug into your USB-C-ready computer. Basically, your pal will never have an excuse to be less than fully charged again.
