Gymnasts rarely love dresses, because they prevent them from being ready to flip at any moment. But they definitely enjoy wearing cute and colorful sweatshirts, jackets, warm-up suits, and T-shirts that let them show off their belonging to the sports of gymnastics. Many popular apparel companies offer clothes for gymnasts with letterings and inspiring pictures about gymnastics. If you think about the gift for your gymnast in advance, you can even order a unique piece of clothing with your own text or her name/photo printed on it. Gymnastic leotards worth special mention because it’s absolutely the most desirable clothing item for every gymnast.


No gymnast will refuse a cute gymnastics tote or a backpack that she can use to bring her supplies, and hold her personal belongings during gymnastics class. If she already has a sports bag, consider buying her a personalized gymnastics lunchbox, where she can bring drinks and healthy snacks for long workouts. To prolong the pleasure of gifting, you can buy an advent calendar for your gymnast and provide small but meaningful gifts for her, counting days before Christmas. Glitter hairspray and bright hair elastics, shiny bun kits and headbands, the gymnastics theme key rings and earrings, gymnasts’ scorebooks, water bottles and other small gymnastics-related items work really great for this purpose.

Books, Videos or Tickets to Events

If your gymnast spends her entire free time watching gymnastics videos on YouTube and trying to repeat what she saw, you can try to enrich the content she consumes with books, thematic films and high-quality videos from gymnastics competitions and events. Letters to a Young Gymnast, Off Balance: A Memoir, Little Girls in Pretty Boxes and other books and movies of that kind allow your gymnasts to get a comprehensive understanding of the sport of gymnastics and see different sides of gymnastics.

Home décor

Her bedroom is the place, where your gymnast spends a lot of time, so she will appreciate gifting her with fun gymnastics home décor. The most popular types of gymnastics décor are wall decals, posters, pillows, rugs and blankets. Another great idea is gifting your gymnast a medal holder, which is a great way to show off her medals she is so proud of and keeping them organized as well. To exceed her expectations, you can even find a special gymnastics ornament, so your gymnast can decorate her room or Christmas tree in the most gymnastics way.
