9 Gift Ideas For Dancers For Christmas
Whether you’re a parent, family member, or just a friend who loves to give gifts, it can be hard to find the perfect gift for a dancer. With the studio being their second home, they may not have had time to even think of writing a wish list! So if you’re looking for ideas of what to get a dancer for Christmas, we have some ideas. Since dancers are all different ages, so are these ideas. Make sure your gift is appropriate for their age and style of dance.
- A foot stretcher
To increase a dancer’s range of motion and arch, this type of stretcher is helpful.
- Exercise bands
These can come in different amounts of resistance, so make sure to read the details before buying one for your dancer. A package that includes bands of diverse resistance would cover the variety of exercises and stretches a dancer does.
- Hair accessories
Spice up a hair style with a colored scrunchie or hair clip. They can be found at dance stores or other places you find hair accessories.
- A new dance bag
This gift may work better if the dancer is not on company. Some studios will require company dancers to have particular gear.
- Sewing kit
Due to the possible choking hazard and sharp objects, this would be better for an older dancer or a parent of the dancer. It will come in handy whether for sewing pointe shoes, fixing a seam, or adjusting a costume.
- Bun kit/ Hair kit
Make sure the dancer you’re buying this for can do their own hair. Many dancers start dancing at a very young age. You can also make one yourself using bobby pins, hair nets, pony tail holders, spin pins, a mini hair brush, and a mini hairspray or mini hair gel.
- Cover up
These can be shorts, a shirt, or a sweater. Dance stores have a nice selection of cover ups as well.
- Foot roller
Dancers spend much of their time on their feet. This helps stretch and massage the muscles in the bottom of the foot. Tennis balls are a great alternative if other options aren’t available.
- Gift cards
Find out what their favorite dance store is and let your dancer do the shopping for you. Now they can buy whatever they want or need!
Hopefully you found the perfect gift from this list, or it sparked an idea. And if the dancer doesn’t need any more dance-related items, you can still get them a normal gift. Everyone loves to get presents, so find a gift that you know they’ll love. Just get it before the stores get packed. And thank you to the dancers who contributed to this article:
