The 25 best volleyball gifts for volleyball players

Volleyball gifts for large budgets

#1 Tickets to a volleyball match

Let’s start with the number one volleyball gift for basically anyone who loves the sport. Whether it’s for a player, a coach, or just a fan of the sport, a ticket to a (professional) volleyball game will make all of them happy!

Head over to Ticketmaster to find out which matches are happening close to the recipient’s home. And even if you can’t find any professional matches there, taking them to a volleyball game from their local team is still a fun activity for the two of you to bond over their favorite sport.


#2 Jump monitor

This is probably the best gift for volleyball players who would do anything to improve their skills.

With this jump monitor, they can not only practice their jumping skill at home (check out #5 for more tools to help them with that), but they can actually track their progress!

They can even film their jumps to really gain clarity on which part of their technique needs to be improved.


#3 Volleyball training shirt

Volleyball players can never have too many training shirts. I mean, if you practice and play a few times a week, you will need a few different options for clothing. (Unless they wash their clothes after every practice, but let’s be honest, who does that?).

So go for a practical gift for your favorite volleyball player and check out one of the best volleyball brands for training clothes; Mizuno.

For example, this short sleeve shirt. But you can find different kinds of men’s and women’s options.


#4 Training bag

A backpack from the number one volleyball brand is always a good idea!

So check out Mizuno for the best backpacks for volleyball players. It can contain their secret stash of “gravity-defying spikes”, lucky serving socks, instant enthusiasm spray, and emergency inflatable net (just in case).

So, whether it’s defying physics or refueling mid-game, this backpack is a great gift for volleyball players of any level.


#5 Jump trainer

This is the perfect gift to go with the jump monitor!

A resistance training set that will help them to reach heights they never thought were possible. After training with this set, they will be the blocking and spiking champion of their team!

It’s also a really cool volleyball team gift that will elevate (literally) their entire team!


#6 Personalized volleyball coach gift

Are you looking for creative and personalized volleyball coach gifts?

Then this wooden photo frame with a picture of your team, and a personalized message for your coach is exactly what you’re looking for.

It’s their very own hall of fame, a reminder that their coaching wisdom is golden and that their efforts are appreciated.


#7 Volleyball-themed hoodie

This volleyball-themed hoodie is a great gift for those who want to show off their love for the game without actually spiking their coffee cup.

Plus, it’s a fun way to stay warm and hide post-practice bedhead – just pull up the hood, and voila, they’re instant volleyball chic.


#8 Muscle roller

This is one of the best gifts for volleyball players who deserve a little break and relaxation. With this muscle roller, they can turn their post-game wobbly-leg waltz into a graceful victory lap.

It’s like a well-deserved spa for their legs (and arms or backs) after those over-enthusiastic spikes and serves. To keep them rolling for their next game or practice, especially if you combine it with gift #11.


#9 Personalized medal display

Are you looking for unique personalized volleyball gifts?

Then go for this beautiful metal medal display (try saying that fast 20 times in a row, that’s a real tongue twister).

Gifting a volleyball-themed medal display is like giving players their own “brag wall.” It’s a way to turn their victories into wall art – the more medals, the fancier the gallery!

Not only will it keep their hard-earned plates organized, but it’s also a visual reminder that hard work pays off.


#10 Water bottle

Whether you’re looking for gifts for volleyball players, coaches, fans, or an entire team, a volleyball-themed water bottle is a great option!

It’s a gift that they can use both during practice and outside of their sport to stay hydrated in style.


Volleyball gifts for mid budgets

#11 Recovery soak

If you’re looking for volleyball gift ideas to go with the muscle roller this coach recovery bath soak is perfect!

After their intense on-court battles and gravity-defying spikes, their muscles deserve a little treat. This thoughtful gift not only helps them unwind but also aids in relieving soreness and recharging for their next match.


#12 Personalized volleyball

Personalized volleyball gifts are the best!

Why?

Well first of all, because personalized gifts rock. Not just according to me, but according to science too!

Because even if your recipient already has a volleyball (which I guarantee every volleyball player has), they will still love and keep a personalized volleyball!

You can add photos, text, or just their name. Or if you need volleyball coach gifts, you can add a photo of your team, have every team member sign the ball, and voila, you have an awesome personalized keepsake for your favorite coach!


#13 Gift card

Even though you will find nothing but amazing volleyball gifts on this list (according to my humble opinion, of course), sometimes it’s better to let the recipient decide on a gift themselves. Maybe they’re just a bit picky, or maybe they’re in need of a pricy volleyball gadget that’s out of your budget for this gift.

In those cases, a gift card is the ultimate solution. And for volleyball players, a Nike gift card is a great option. Nike sells awesome volleyball gear, but even if they can’t find anything they like, they can still use the gift card to buy other cool stuff from Nike.

Oh, and for those of you who think that gift cards show a lack of effort and love. Think again.

Studies have shown that people actually want gift cards (it allows them to buy exactly what they want and need). And when I interviewed other travel bloggers about their worst gifts and what they have liked to have instead, they also mentioned gift cards as a better alternative.

So let’s agree on this now for once and for all. Gift cards are good gifts.

And if you do want to make it a little bit more personalized and unique, check out these 29 creative ways to give gift cards!


#14 Training aid

Nike’s head tie is a fantastic volleyball gift idea that serves both style and functionality. With their focus on spiking, serving, and setting, a head tie keeps their hair game on point and out of the net. Making sure that there are no more distractions from stray strands.

It’s a thoughtful way to enhance their performance while adding a touch of flair.
