Need an ice skating gift idea?
Let me help 🙂 The list below includes ice skating gift ideas for figure skaters (hockey players and speed skater will be in other articles) and they are all great whatever the circumstance and whatever the level:
- and competition / test celebrations
I think personalized gifts are the best, this is why you will see a lot of my own designs on Zazzle products where you can add the name of the skater and / or modify the design as you want.
Here are examples:
For a recreational skater, a personalized towel to dry the blades at the end of practice:
Personalized gifts for figure skaters
Further in the article I cover equipment related to ice skates and figure skating practice. But I am starting with personalized gifts because I think they are thoughtful and always more appreciated. Plus, some of them can also be practical for ice skating training sessions!
Receiving a unique object made for you is always a hit!
Practical ice skating gifts - Girl & boy
Let's start with practical objects that can be used around figure skating practices - unique + practical is a winning combination! For example:
- Towels to dry the blades and make sure no rust forms on them
- Water bottles to stay hydrated during practice
- Mirror to make sure the makeup is competition-ready
- A luggage tag to identify your ice skating bag

Then clothes are also a good idea: to show the passion for the sport outside of the rink or as practice wear during training. Ice skating clothing gift ideas include
- tank tops,
Further down I cover figure skating bags, but here let's consider other bags to show the skater's passion for the sport in everyday life.
Notebooks are always a pleaser! The figure skater can: write a diary, take notes on practice sessions, draw... be inspired by ice skating!
A figure skater often wants his/her room to reflect the passion for skating. Gift ideas include:
- room signs,
Jewelry figure skating gifts
Of course, you often cannot go wrong with jewelry. but it depends on the skater. Even with a small budget you can find cute options. Ice skating jewelry gift ideas include:
- Drop earrings
And for a small gift specific to Christmas, you can also offer an ice skating Christmas ornament to decorate the tree!
Practical ice skating accessories as gift
Now, if you are looking for something really dedicated to the practice of ice skating for a serious figure skater gift, this section is for you.
Well, figure skating implies quite a significant budget. Therefore, a birthday or Christmas can be the occasion to offer a new pair of skates. But this is a decision to be taken with the skater, to make sure the pair is adapted to the level and the foot shape.
Figure skating accessories and skates
Any figure skater needs a collection of equipment apart from the skate
You can find new beautiful training clothes. We saw some personalized examples above. But you can choose more technical ones with adapted fabrics including;
- Men's training pants - sadly there is not much choice in this category
On-ice training equipment
You can of course offer items to help with training on the ice. However, those will be very practical gifts but may not be the most inspirational. Mostly:
- Protective pads to reduce risk of injuries when practicing jumps
- Water bottle (we saw some personalized ones above, but you can also choose traditional ones)
Off-ice training equipment
Another idea for a serious figure skater (male or female) is to find a gift to help with off ice training.
The skater cannot always be on the ice. Practice hours are limited and at a cost. But there is much he/she can do off the ice to improve performance: exercises to
improve balance, flexibility, strength and endurance.
Therefore you can find original gifts for a figure skater in this category such as:
- Equipment to practice pirouettes / spins - to work on balance and core strength
- Stretching bands and guide to help improve flexibility day by day for better splits, arabesque...
- Or a more obvious slide board - to slide, even if stuck in your bedroom
Inspirational figure skating gifts
Now let's have a look at inspirational figure skating gift ideas.
Books are a great option and there is a wide variety of books on figure skating:
- Practice tips
- Biographies (male, female, pairs, dance...)
- Stories for kids and for young adults
See all my suggestions in my article about Figure Skating Books
You can find a few physical coloring books about ice skating. But if you are looking for something more unique, I have created my own coloring sheets that you can purchase on Etsy, download and print as much as you want for personal use. You can place them in a beautiful paper sleeve for a personalized gift.
For a serious figure skater, another great gift option is to pay for training sessions with a renowned figure skating coach or a choreographer.
Ice skating Experience / Trip
And if you are looking for a very special gift for a big occasion, why not take your skaters to one of the most beautiful ice skating places in the World such as:
- Lake Louise in Banff for an unforgettable skating experience in Nature surrounded by mountains
- Ontario's Arrowhead ice skating trail surrounded with forest

- Lake Windermeere Whiteway in British Columbia, Canada
- The Somerset House Ice rink in London
