Here are some ideas for a gymnastics party favors bag or “goody bag”. These could also be used as gymnastics meet good luck gifts.
The Makeup Bag Gift Bag
The Makeup Bag gift bag idea is great because everyone at the birthday party doesn’t have to be gymnasts. All girls will appreciate the stuff in this goody bag.
Pencil Case Makeup Bag: I picked this pencil case that can double as a makeup bag because it’s cute and small. It would work perfectly for holding all the makeup supplies a gymnast would need and can be thrown right in her gym bag for practice or meets.
Eos Lip Balm: Lip balm is a gym bag staple and this Eos Lip balm comes in packs of six to make it an easy goody bag item.
Goody Hair Elastics: Every gymnast needs hair elastics to tie her hair back with and these ouchless ones are perfect! These come in big packs of 72 so you can throw a couple in each gift bag.
Under Armour Mini Headbands: Gymnasts love to use these mini headbands while their hair is pulled back to keep the wispys out of their face during practice. And even better these Under Armour mini headbands have empowering sayings for girls on them.
LA Colors Fruit Scent Nail Polish Remover Pads: These fruit scented nail polish remover pads are so cool! They smell good and are perfect for storing in your gym bag in case your gymnast forgets to remove her nail polish before a meet. They come in a pack of 6 individual cases with 32 pads in each case.
The “Grip” Bag Goody Bag
The Grip Bag birthday goody bag idea is great for a birthday party with mostly gymnasts. Especially if it’s a party with just her team members. You can fill an inexpensive grip bag with some bar essentials. Even if the gymnasts already have a grip bag they can use the cloth drawstring bag to hold other items in their gym bag.
Mystique Gymnastics Grip Bag: The Snowflake Mystique grip bag is inexpensive and comes in a variety of colors.
Cosmos 12 Pack of Different Colored Wristbands: This pack comes with 12 different colored sets of wristbands.
Mueller Rainbow Pack of Pre-Wrap: This rainbow pack of pre-wrap has 12 different rolls.
The Water Bottle Goody Bag
The water bottle goody bag idea is to get a cute gymnast water bottle and fill it with some treats. I like the idea of a table full of these super-cute gymnast water bottles filled with candy and other treats that the birthday party guests could grab as they leave.
Snowflake Designs Gymnast Water Bottle: I love this snowflake designs water bottle and it comes in eight different color combinations. If you preferred you could get plain water bottles and have your party guests decorate them with paint markers.
Hair Ribbon: I think this hair ribbon attached to a pony tail holder would look great attached to the top of the water bottle. It would look like a ribbon tied on the water bottle, only the birthday party guest could wear it later in her hair.
Hair Ties: No crease hair ties seem to be trendy lately!
Lipsmackers Lip Balm: Throw in a Lipsmackers lip balm from this party pack to make your water bottle goody bag complete!
I think this purse gift bag idea is perfect for young gymnast birthday parties.
Frozen Hair Clips: It seems like most kids these days have Frozen fever, so these frozen hair clips are cute for pulling back hair.
Sunglasses: These sunglasses are a cute but cheap party favor.
Jelly Bracelets: Every preschool-aged or elementary-school-aged girl needs some jelly bracelets, no? Haha Joke. But these would make a cute addition to the purse gift bag.
Gymnastics Stickers: In order to keep this goody bag gymnastics-themed, include a sheet or half-sheet (you could cut these in half so they will fit in the purse better) of these stickers.
I think this gym bag gift bag idea is great for older gymnasts. I included some items that could go inside it that older athletes would like when they are working out, or not!
Under Armour Mini Headbands: Athletes love Under Armour mini headbands to keep the hair off their face when they are working out, and they make a perfect party favor.
Lip Gloss: All teenage girls love lip gloss! And each girl could get a different color and then share.
Travel Size Burt’s Bees Lotion: A travel-sized Burt’s Bees lotion, or any lotion, would be a nice addition to this gift bag. Perfect for the dry conditions of a gym.
Travel Size Hairspray: A travel-sized hairspray is a must for gymnasts, especially at meets.
Gymnastic Party Favor Ideas
Instead of giving out a gymnastics goody bags at your birthday party, what about just a gymnastics party favor? Here are a couple individual gymnastics favor ideas.
Ribbon Wands: I think these ribbon wands would be cute for young kids. Why do they need a whole bag of things they might not use instead of one ribbon wand that will provide hours of entertainment?
Gymnastics Doll Leotards: Give each of your birthday party guests a doll leotard that they can take home to play gymnastics again with their doll. There are tons of different doll leotard designs to choose from. (Click on Shop Now/Accessories)
Gymnast Bag Tags: Gymnast bag tags are a perfect gymnastics party favor for older guests. Gymnasts can use these personalized bag tags on their gym bag, and non-gymnast guests can use them on their luggage.
Gymnastics Picture Frame: If you want a more personalized-to-your-gymnast’s-birthday party favor you can take a picture of all the guests at the beginning of the party, print copies during the party and slide them into these gymnastics picture frames.
Nastia Liukin Grip Keychains: These grip key chains are super-cute and an inexpensive party favor. Perfect for older gymnasts or younger gymnasts to attach to their gym bags!
I tried to come up with gymnastics goody bags, or party favor bags with ideas for both older and younger gymnasts, and gymnastics parties that have non-gymnasts.
