For the rink
For training at home
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. Receiving a unique object made for you is always a hit!
On most of my designs on Zazzle products, you can add the name of the skater. Here are examples:
For a recreational skater, a personalized towel to dry the blades at the end of practice:
For a serious figure skater, a personalized notebook to journal progress during on and off the ice practices:
For a synchronized skater, a luggage tag to identify a bag with the team's name and the skater's name (synchro gifts are further in the article):

- Luggage tags to identify your ice skating bag

- 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.
You an also find zipper pouches in different sized to organized your make-up or pens or other belongings.
Notebooks and journals are always a success! The figure skater can: write a diary, take notes on practice sessions, draw... be inspired by ice skating!
I have also create notebooks sold on Amazon. They can't be personalize. However I have been able to create a special inside: under the lines there are silhouettes shadows of figure skaters. An inspiring notebook to write a diary. See all of them here.

Practical ice skating gift ideas - accessories
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
Any figure skater needs a collection of equipment apart from the skates:
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
