Ever wonder what you should get for the
cheerleader in your life? They already have everything they need, but their
love of cheer warrants some extra items that they might want. But, what, you
ask? Cheerleading items can cost a pretty penny, so making sure you are
purchasing the right gifts can save you in the long run. Luckily, in-stock
cheer companies can be shopped online, without having to sign up for a mailed
catalog. Also, in-stock cheer companies offer free shipping on items when you
reach a minimum amount in your cart–so it’s a win-win! Coupled with a few DIY
ideas, you’ll be set. Here are a few suggestions to help make the holidays a
little bit easier when shopping for cheerleaders:
1. Spirit boxes.
gift box full of spirit-related products that you can order from in-stock cheer
or make yourself! Decorate the box to a theme, and wrap it on up! You
can give one box for the holiday season, or give the gift that keeps on giving
by making one for each month of the year! You can keep a consistent ‘cheer’
theme, or you can focus on upcoming events rather than on the sport itself. For
example, a ‘Summer Fun’ box can be a compilation of beach and summer-themed
products come summertime!
bags. My favorite
are, of course, from Omni Cheer, and no, I am not biased! Every
cheerleader needs their own personalized duffle bag or book bag to carry around
everything they need for their next cheerleading competitions. P.S–glitter is
always better, so I recommend the Chassé® Glitter Duffle
under the tree.
3. Tumbling mats for
home. If your
house is anything like mine, your cheerleader probably spends most of their
time tumbling all around the house. (And, hopefully they’re not crashing into
things!) If you want something to keep the carpets clean, and make the whole
activity a little safer, tumbling mats are affordable and available online.
4. Bow holders and bows. Cheerleaders can
never have enough bows! From all the wonderful bows to choose from, you will
never run out of options. While you’re at it, get a cheer bow holder, like the
Bow Pro® from Chassé! If you’re crafty, you can even D.I.Y. a jumbo performance
bow with your cheerleader’s name on it. Don’t forget the glitter and sequins!
5. Cheerleading jewelry. Look on the Pinterest,
and you will find a bunch of different ideas to make special bracelets,
bangles, and cheerleading necklaces that is sure to make their Christmas
morning. By doing so, you also get to showcase your artsy side!
**Bonus items: stocking stuffer alert! Glitter makeup packages are now available to
be ordered online, and feature everything a cheerleader needs to be
performance-ready. Another item to fit any stocking is a scarf in your cheerleader's team colors.
