50 Things Every Gymnast Needs to Pack

When I was a child, my mom was the master stocking stuffer. Every year she would fill our stockings with meaningful trinkets pertinent to our individuality and current interests. Trying to follow suit, I’ve been on the hunt for special items to stuff in my daughters’ stockings this year. Here are fifty of my gymnastics-themed finds. Hope you find a gymnastics gift (or two or three) perfect for your special gymnast!
