With Christmas shopping in full swing, I wanted to put together a list of the most popular gymnastics gifts of 2017. You seemed to love this list last year of the most popular gifts, so I poured over data from GymnasticsHQ and information from Amazon and other retailers to bring you the 10 Most Popular Gifts of 2017.
Some of the most popular gifts are similar to last year, and some are completely new!
This is My Handstand Shirt
The most popular gift of 2017 is….the This is My Handstand Shirt. This has been a popular gift for several years and it was #2 on last year’s list. It comes in 11 different colors with the most popular being fuchsia and turquoise. This t-shirt is slim-fitting with a longer body length. It runs small so order a size up.
Gymnastics No Crease Hair Ties
The second most popular gymnastics gift of 2017 is this package of gymnastics no-crease hair ties. These hair ties are a new addition to the most popular list this year. The package comes with 7 different hair ties of different colors. These hair ties are a great way for your gymnast to show her love for gymnastics!
Love Gymnastics Infinity Bracelet
This incredibly popular Love Gymnastics Infinity Bracelet has dropped slightly from #1 in 2016 to the #3 spot this year. This bracelet is a great gift that will look good on your young gymnast!
Handmade Personalized Gymnast Water Bottle
This 24 ounce BPA free gymnast water bottle is a new addition to the list this year! This picture is one that was posted on FB by GymnasticsHQ reader Alisha. She says ” The personalized gymnast water bottle you have listed here is a great choice! My daughter has this exact one, and you can choose colors and font. We’ve bought several for gifts, and already ordered one for my younger daughter for Xmas! Reasonable price, good quality, and so cute! [Shown] is the one we just ordered. My other daughter’s is teal and pink. I personally like the “Alex” font option” Sounds like there is a reason this water bottle made the list!
Tumbl Trak Panel Mat
Tumbl Trak’s Panel Mat moved up the list this year. This panel mat comes in several colors but the most popular this year is purple. It also comes in two thicknesses– standard panel mat thickness is 1-3/8 inch.
Tumbl Trak Junior Bar Pro
It looks like people are embracing doing some home workouts to supplement their gymnastics classes, because the Tumbl Trak Junior Bar Pro also moved up the list to the #6 spot. The Junior Bar Pro is great because it’s easier than previous versions of home gymnastics bars to set up and take -down. It’s also more durable and doesn’t need extensions or plywood for further stabilization.
Courage to Soar Book
Simone Biles’ book Courage to Soar: A Body in Motion, A Life in Balance made the list last year also. Given that at only nineteen Biles became the most decorated U.S. gymnast of all time, you can see why her memoir is so popular. She takes you through her early childhood in foster care to the 2016 Olympics.
Good Luck Zipper Pull
This handmade gymnastics zipper pull is a new addition to the most popular gymnastics gifts list. This zipper pull would make a great stocking stuffer. It’s a perfect accessory for your gymnast’s bag. The glass bead can be several different colors.
GOALS Motivational Poster
This Goals Motivational Poster was #9 on the list last year also! It’s a great poster your gymnast can use to decorate her room, and it fits with the popular hashtag #goals.
RIPT’s 3 Phase Hand Care Kit
I’m not surprised the 3 Phase Hand Care Kit made the list this year, given all the positive response I got from last week’s Guide to Gymnastics Rips: Prevention & Care. Rips can be super painful for gymnasts, and by following the RIPT system for prevention and care, they should be less frequent. You can give your gymnast the gift of less frequent rips, and shorter healing times when she does get them. The coupon code GYMNASTICSHQ-10 should work through today to get 10% off your order.
