Stocking Stuffer Gymnastics Gifts – 2014

Gym Gab’s 50 Gymnastics Stocking Stuffers – 2013 guide proved to be a helpful resource for gym parents last Christmas. Almost 365 days have come and gone and once again it’s time to find gymnastics gifts small enough to help stuff the stocking!

This year’s Stocking Stuffer Gymnastics Gift Guide includes a whole  new set of gifting ideas and variations from last year finds. I also included a few repeats – staples and ideas worth revisiting!

Like last year, the 2014 list includes gymnastics gifts for gymnasts of all ages and abilities! Many items can be purchased through Amazon (great news for PRIME members doing some last minute shopping) or on product specific websites. There are also personalized hand-made items, sold through Etsy, requiring several weeks to end up on your doorstep. For these items, order today!!!

My favorite gymnastics gifts for the stocking this year?  First, the Tendlite! It may be a bit of an investment compared to other gifts in your child’s stocking but what it can offer your gymnast parallels to almost none in way of gymnastics gifts. Find out what makes it so great – listed with the gymnastics gifts below (# 3 under gym bag gymnastics gifts). I also love the leotard keychain by Alpha Factor for no other reason than I find it extremely cute. Of course I’m also a fan of leotards, the flexibility bands, deep blue rub, gymnastics books, inside gymnastics magazines, and . . . who am I kidding, I love all of these gymnastics gifts!

Happy Shopping!
