Ice skating gifts for large budgets

#1 Ticket to an ice skating event

Let’s start this list with the number one ice skating gift; tickets to an ice skating event!

Whether it’s to the national figure skating championships, a local ice skating race, or Disney’s on Ice, taking the recipient to anything skating-related is the best gift your can give.

I’ve said it numerous times before, and I will repeat myself until everyone is sick of me.

But, experience gifts are simply the best gift out there!


#2 Skate bags

Now before you head off and buy this cute and colorful skate bag. There is one thing I want you to keep in mind.

Most ice skaters will likely already have a skate bag. I mean, it’s their passion, their skates are their lives, so surely they will already have a practical bag to carry their life around.

So make sure you only buy this colorful bag for people who are new to ice skating, for people whose current skate bags are falling apart, or for those who love colors and happy prints. So they will actually use your gift.


#3 Tumbler

An ice skating-themed tumbler is the coolest gift for ice skaters! Not only does it let them flaunt their passion with every sip, but it’s also a practical gift. After pirouettes and twirls in the rink, they’ve earned the right to warm up with a hot drink which their tumbler kept nice and warm for them!


#4 Personalized medal display

After all those spins, jumps, and maybe a graceful fall or two (we won’t tell), your favorite figure skater deserves to showcase those hard-earned medals with more pride than a peacock in a parade.

This is why a personalized medal display is a perfect figure skating gift idea!

This display isn’t just a hanger; it’s a reminder of their dedication, turning their collection of triumphs into a work of art.


#5 Ice skating training pants

Figure skaters can never have too many pants, especially not if they’re from the popular ice skating brand Chloe Noel!

So whether you’re looking for ice skating gifts for those who are new to the sport or those who have practiced for years, these pants are perfect.


#6 Spinning trainer

Do you need figure skating gifts for someone who loves to practice and improve their skills as much as they can?

Then they will absolutely love this figure skating spinner. Or as I like to call it “the Twirlinator.”

This small mat helps skaters nail those spins with grace, balance, and pizzazz, all from the comfort of their homes and without the risk of falling on the cold hard ice. Then once they mastered the skill, they can comfortably start practicing in the rink.


#7 Training jacket

If you’re looking for practice figure skating gifts, this training jacket from Chloe Noel is perfect and great to pair with the pants (#5).

It’s lined with fleece to keep them warm inside the rink when they’re not busy spinning and jumping, making it a great practical gift for figure skaters of any level.


#8 Water bottle

All ice skaters know that hydration is key for good performance, so why not help them hydrate in style with one of the ice skating-themed water bottles from Zazzle?

Whether you’re looking for ice skating gifts for racers or for figure skaters, you will find a unique design on Zazzle.


Ice skating gifts for mid budgets

#9 Cute skate soaker

A soaker is literally, a piece of cloth that “soaks” the moisture for ice skates, and it’s an essential item for ice skaters because moisture is the enemy that can lead to rusting of their blades.

Ice skaters use two items for this, a drying towel for a quick dry-up (see gift #16) and soakers that are meant to stay on the blades until they’ve reached home where ice skaters can take further care of their skates.

So now that you know about the background of the soaker, you probably also realize it’s a great ice skating gift!

But it’s even better if you go for a fun, cute, or unique soaker, such as these adorable ones on Amazon.


#10 Wall art

#16 Personalized skate drying towel

Are you looking for personalized and practical ice skating gifts?

Then this skate-drying towel is exactly what you need.
