Are you looking for a gift for a young ballerina or ballet dancer? Go against the standard lists of best gifts for ballet dancers. You know. The one’s that have pics of ballerinas or pointe shoes all over them (yuck). Those might be great gifts when the dancer is around 5-6 years old, but as dancer’s enter their pre-teens, teens, and beyond, finding a gift for them requires a combo of taste and function. 

Below you’ll find our list of best gifts for ballet dancers of all ages. 

Best Gifts for Ballet Dancers

Basics Box from BalletBox

For new dancers, and dancers that always seem to run out of their basics, we recommend the BalletBox Basics Box. It’s one of the best sellers and we get dancers consistently buying this because of our tights are the most comfortable ballet tights, our Freed Canvas shoes, the canvas slipper bag, and the our classic bun kit. This Ballet Box is always a hit.

RubiaWear Leg Warmers

Yes. Leg warmers. We love RubiaWear’s leg warmers, especially the Full Leg Warmer in Plum. In fact, we love them so much that we made our very own Warmup Box that includes them.

Lululemon Principal Dancer Skirt

This skirt is just so comfy. It’s made with transparent mesh fabric so your silhouette can be seen through during warm up class. And the golden thread waistband is everything.

Chloe and Isabel – Jen Atkin Hair Products


Their velvet bow scrunchies giving us some serious Parisian vibes right now. But really. You can’t go wrong with any of their hair scrunchies as a gift for a dancer.

Danskin Leotards


A lot of brands are pumping out leo’s these days. We still love the styles and quality of Danskin. I personally like the Illusion neckline and the cross black. We recommend when choosing a leotard as a gift to pick something that’s a little different than a standard leotard.

Rumble Roller


You may look at this and think it looks like some freaky piece of construction equipment. But the Rumble Roller is like a personal massage therapy tool for dancers. I have one that I use for regular muscle pain from dance and gym workouts.

Acupressure Pillow Set


If you thought the last gift idea looked freaky than this one will take the cake. It looks like a medieval torture device. However, this set is used to reduce muscle tension, backspin, and headaches, while increasing circulation. Perfect for dancers who get regular tension headaches and muscle aches in their neck and back.

The F Factor Diet Book

Ballet and all forms of dance are a competitive sport where your diet matters. With so much bad information out there, I’d like to recommend the F-Factor Diet by Tanya Zuckerbrot. It’s a great book for teaching dancers the importance of a proper diet and nutrition to keep them fueled for all activities.

Aerie Oversized Turtleneck

Ballet dancer’s may look put together on stage, but offstage we enjoy lounging in the most comfy clothes possible. This oversized turtleneck is a great gift for a ballet dancer and feels like a cozy blanket.

Aerie Plush Ribbed Cuff Jogger

There’s nothing that dancers love more than to kick it cozy! These joggers are super comfy and perfect for lounging after dance class or on days off.

Lululemon Yoga Pants

Lululemon yoga pants are another great gift for dancers. I recommend getting the Align Pant, but they have several options to choose from here. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with any, and most dancers will appreciate these yoga pants as a gift for any occasion.
