The 2009 Holiday Derby Gift Guide

Just in time for your holiday shopping, I'm here to tell you about some unique gifts that you can purchase for your favorite roller girl. I've scoured the web to present you with the latest finds in derby accessories, fashion and fun! In a recent previous post, I put the word out requesting possible submissions for my Gift Guide and thanks to some loyal Rebel Yell readers, I've got some great things to show you.

I'm going to start off with some adorable items from from Sourpuss Clothing, sponsor of The Long Island Roller Rebels. At $25, this shirt is a retro way to say Merry Christmas baby.

What roller derby outfit is complete without a pair of stripped socks?

Keep the sweat off your head with this Lucky 13 bandanna
Chelsea from Roller Girl, submitted some really unique gift ideas. The first, String Blade Good Luck Charm, is a small but tough little jammer charm, complete with star helmet cover, knee pads and mini-skirt. Choose from blonde, brunette or redhead!

Have you found your derby wife yet? Ready to pop the question? (Sorry guys this is just for the ladies. Read here to learn what the term derby wife means). Well, you won't want to be without The Derby Wedding Kit. The perfect way to seal the deal, this kit includes: 1 engagement ring charm (clips onto skate laces), 1 garter belt, 1 Derby Marriage Certificate, 1 copy of the Derby Vows ad Ceremony.
