What to gift someone who likes dancing?
Christmas is sneaking up on us fast, and I don’t know about you, but I am one of those people that tend to shop WAAYY last minute. But this year I am turning over a new leaf, and have actually already started prepping for this holiday season.
This list is full of great ideas on stocking stuffers for dancers. Or you can always send it to your partner, to give a little nudge in the right direction. 😂
Before we start, make sure to head over to my blog post on the ultimate gift guide for adult ballet dancers! By the end, you will be swimming in stocking stuffer ideas.
Stocking stuffers perfect for your dance bag
If you or a loved one is taking dance classes then they probably have a bag full of goodies for class. These stuffer ideas are both practical and cute gifts for an adult dancer.
1️⃣ Pointe Shoe Keychain
The Bloch Pointe shoe keychain is a popular gift for a reason! This cute keychain comes in many different colors and is the perfect accessory for your dance bag or purse.
2️⃣ Bloch Ballet Booties
I don’t personally own these but they are on my ballet bucket list of items I would love. *hint hint hubby 👀* These camo ones from Bloch are so cute and make a great stocking stuffer because you can use them in class and as slippers around the house.
3️⃣ Ballet Tights Stocking Stuffer
As a dancer, you can truly never have too many tights. There is always a pair that has runs in it or holes and having those backup pairs are life savers!
If you are looking for a really useful gift for the adult ballet dancer in your life, then go with some tights.
I love these tights from Capezio plus they are on Amazon so they ship really fast.
I also love these tights from body wrappers because of the high waist feature. It has a very slimming effect.
Stocking Stuffers for dancers en pointe
Achieving the pointe shoes as an adult is something that many of us are striving towards and there is no better way to celebrate than by giving a thoughtful gift!
This can be something practical to help them or a small memento to mark the occasion. These stocking stuffer gifts would be perfect for any dancer en pointe.
1️⃣ Resistance Bands
This resistance band is a great gift for dancers because they will definitely be using it all the time! It’s great for multiple different strengthening exercises to help them with their pointe classes.

2️⃣Pointe Shoe Ribbion
You can go through a lot of pointe shoe ribbons, so this is another practical stocking stuffer for any dancer. This pointe shoe ribbon from Bloch is a popular option!
3️⃣ Pointe Shoe Pin
I am absolutely in love with these pointe pins from Etsy and they make a great stocking stuffer for ballet dancers.
It comes in three different skin tones: pink, light brown, and brown. You can purchase this inclusive pointe pin here.
Ballet Bun Hair Accessories
Hair gifts are some of the best gifts for dancers and you can’t go wrong with this stocking stuffer.
1️⃣ Ballet Bun Hair Kit
This Bloch hair kit is one of my favorites! It comes in a travel-size tin which is super handy to just throw in your dance bag. It comes with all the essentials to make the perfect ballet bun.
2️⃣ Bobby Pins
These bobby pins are perfect to build a ballet bun, and they come in multiple different shades to match your hair. They have a really great grip and never fall out of my hair. You can shop them here on Amazon.
If your ballet dancer is looking for more sparkle in their life, then a flower bun wrap is a great option! I love this one because it’s a subtle and classic way to uplevel your ballet bun.
Stocking stuffers for ballet dancers
1️⃣ Shower Steamers
Shower steamers are a great alternative to bath bombs as a stocking stuffer gift because not everyone has a bathtub, but everyone does have a shower!
These ones from Amazon have been used by many dancers with really great success! You can buy shower steamers here.
I am also in love with these shower steamers from Etsy, which you can get here if you are looking to support a small business.
Jewelry makes a great stocking stuffer for dancers and the great thing is there are so many different kinds out there! The above three are my top favorite ballet Christmas stocking items because they all have very simple, but stunning design elements.
3️⃣ Fuzzy Socks
Another great stocking stuffer is fuzzy socks! This is an easy gift to grab last minute and is a practical gift for winter weather.
I like to layer socks over my ballet shoes to help warm up my feet quicker without losing too much mobility. These ones from Amazon are perfect because they go over the knees and don’t slip down during class.
Ballet shoes can be an amazing stocking stuffer for dancers BUT only if you know their shoe size and preference. It can take a while to find the best ballet slipper for you so if you are buying for yourself here are my favorite ones for adult beginners.
1️⃣ Bloch Performa
Bloch Performa ballet shoes are hands down my favorite shoe! I personally use these and they work great for my wide feet. I can really feel my toes in them and love how they make my pointed foot look.
2️⃣ Capezio Canvas Juliet
Another cult favorite is the Capezio Canvas Juliet ballet shoe. These shoes create a great line for your feet and are comfortable as well.
3️⃣ Blochsox Dance Socks
Dance socks are a fun alternative to ballet shoes and this way you can’t mess up the size. 😉
I personally love dancing in these socks when it feels like my feet want a break from ballet shoes or if I am really focusing on articulation through the feet. They are my favorite to wear for pre-pointe classes.
Extra: Ballerina Stocking Holder
Now that you have all your fun stocking stuffers you need somewhere to put them! I am completely obsessed with the Nutcracker so I love this themed stocking from Etsy, which you can get here.
If you are looking for a more subtle ballet christmas stocking then this one from Amazon will be perfect for you.
Whoa! You made it to the end and now have so many ideas for a stocking stuffer for any dancer in your life. I hope you found this list helpful and that it inspires you during this christmas season. If you really don’t know what to get for a dancer, then you can’t go wrong with an Amazon gift card.
They have tons of ballet gear and it will be something that they can use right away.
