Another idea is to give pro shop items!

Many cheerleading gyms sell everything from socks and accessories, to jackets and practice wear. You can get items from your own gym, or other gyms that the gift receiver is a fan of!

8. Gift cards

If you’re not sure what to get, or maybe what size or color – giving a gift card is perfect!

It can be both from a site that offers gift cards, but also one that doesn’t (a pro shop for example). If a site doesn’t offer one, you can make your own and give the athlete an amount of money to shop for.

A simple but very appreciated idea!

We put together a guide that explains how this works + our favorite VPN, that you can read by clicking here.

Hopefully, this gave you some ideas and inspiration for cheerleading gifts!
