2011 Holiday Derby Gift Guide

The time has come!  I've gone through all of my favorite online sources to put together some gifts that your derby friends and relatives are going to love! 

Welcome to the 2011 Holiday Derby Gift Guide!

Want to add a little derby to your Christmas tree?  These ornaments by MoxieMadness are the perfect solution!  They come in multiple colors and cost $16 for two.

I love hair accessories and am often seen with a flower in my hair.  These skate clips from MT Coffinz are the perfect alternative to a flower and great for a team manager who doesn't have to wear a helmet!  They come in other colors and cost just $8!

Another great accessory for your hair, is this roller girl headband from Janine Basil. 

For your favorite cook on quads, a roller derby cookbook! The Dames Dish it Out - a cookbook created by The Greenville Derby Dames is filled with little secrets, plenty of photos of the girls and over 80 recipes.  $15

I've featured products from Beep Art in the past and they continue to add more creative ideas to their collection all the time.  Check out this adorable derby girl laptop decal for only $12.

Keep the derby love going all year long with a subscription to Five on Five Magazine.  This informative mag will keep you updated on everything from gear, regionals, coaching, media and so much more.  Order a single issue, or set up a friend with a full subscription.

Most derby players, especially when starting out, eat, drink and sleep derby.  These pillow cases by Branch Handmade can definitely help out with the sleep part.  $18 for a set of two.

I think it's only fair that if you skate, your Christmas stocking should reflect that.  Check out this derby skate stocking for $14.99 by Sinister Skate Wear

Derby girls are always looking for the perfect booty shorts.  Hex Chromosome features these and other bottoms which are created for and by derby girls.  Best of all, they promise no muffin tops or camel toes.  Check out the rest of their amazing styles and colors!

Former skater and artist Dedly Weponz never ceases to amaze me with her creativity.  Check out this tote bag for $28.

Keep the derby festivities going all year long with this illustrated calendar  for $20 by Black Sheep Clothing.

For those who love art, these colorful prints from Strada Coast are full of character and at just $10 each, affordable.

Let's not forget a little something for our hard working refs.  How about these note cards for $5 or necklace for $12 from Fire Bolt Creations.

To our derby moms with future derby players in their house.  This bib from Caustic Threads is not only adorable, but it's also reversible!  $14

There you have it!  The best of the best for holiday 2011.  I hope this year's guide helps you pick out some gifts for your loved ones.  Here's to a wonderful derby filled holiday season!!
