It's the season of gift giving! Are you ready?
Every year parents ask me what types of accessories they should get their students for Christmas. Since there are a lot of gimmicky tools out there, I like to steer them toward more practical items. I also have teachers looking for inexpensive gift suggestions to give their students. So you can see how having present ideas on hand can be very helpful. Here's a linked list to help get those creative gift-giving juices flowing during this holiday season.

Looking for something small to get your students? These cute Scunci reindeer clips will make a great gift for your dancers this season. They're only $1.24 per package!
A great option for younger students is a sticker pack. This Nutcracker sticker page starts at $1.29.
Want to stay away from Christmas themed gifts? This package of winter socks makes for a fun and cozy present. At $2.20/pair (currently on sale for $1.27/pair - 11/17/2022) it's a practical and decently priced gift for those with several students. Pro tip: Always look for bundled packs to save in cost.

** Size matters for exercise balls! Use the height of dancer to determine size.
45 cm = Under 4'8" 55 cm = 4'8" to 5'3" 65 cm = 5'4" to 5'10" 75 cm = 5'10"-6'4" **
The easiest gift with so many options! Here are a few ideas to ignite your brain. Note: If you're getting a skirt for a young child, make sure it's the pull-on type versus tie-ups. Ties always come undone in class.
