Grandma gets a pair of socks, dad gets his new power drill, and your little brother is all good to go with his brand new bike, but where does that leave you? Whether you're a dancer who needs to drop a hint to mom and dad, or you’re a friend who has no idea what you’re supposed to buy for your dancer friend… this gift guide is for you!

For the Ballerina… try the Ballet Glider. This sleeve wraps around the barre and helps you slide your foot to the next position during barre stretch.

For the competitive dancer… a new makeup organizer should do the trick. Companies like Ulta, Sephora, and Target carry makeup cases that will be useful for many competitions to come.

For the dancer who reads… head to the local book store for one of these great picks: Life in Motion by Misty Copeland, The Art of Movement by Ken Browar, or The Ballet Companion by Eliza Gaynor.

And for a stocking stuffer try “Silky Underwear” from Lush. This miracle product can be used on feet, hair, and the whole body to help keep a dancer smelling fresh… because no one likes the smell of post rehearsal dancer feet.

Happy holidays and happy hunting Pluggers! Tis the season for shopping mayhem.
