30+ best gifts for cheerleaders
Here is a selection of handpicked gifts for the cheerleader/s in your life. From clothing, shoes, makeup, hair, tech and fitness, there is something to suit all tastes and budgets.
Our little cheerleader is in her 5th year of cheerleading and everything she owns is cheer related. When she first started out we found we didn’t really know what to get our little cheerleader and even if we did, Australia (where we live) didn’t have very much in the way of cheer-related gifts.
We are so happy to now be able to suggest some fantastic presents and gift ideas for Cheerleaders. Also please let us know in the comments below if there is something you suggest or swear by for cheerleading that we may have missed.

Shoes and Clothing
Nike Pro 3″ shorts a staple for training in.
Nike sports crop is also essential training gear.
Nike Air Force 1s are a highly fashionable and requested shoe for cheerleaders. If they are not in there Cheer shoes, chances are they are in these.
Anything from Rebel Athletics – high quality gym and street-wear, great range and has shoes and accessories too.
Sunglasses make an excellent gift – these ones are from Quay Australia.
Makeup – Face and Body
Any popular or new release makeup palette is a sure-fire gift idea. Or perhaps try an all-round smokey eye palette like this one from Milani.
Bath bombs are always a good filler gift especially those from Lush that pride themselves on natural and organic ingredients and smell fantastic.
Clear acrylic makeup organisers are the perfect gift to keep all the makeup clean and organized. We love these ones from Amazon.
Light up mirrors are all the rage right now and I can understand why. This one features rotatable mirror, Bluetooth connectivity and spot mirror.
With 72 LEDs and smart touch dimmable, 90 degree rotaion and tri-fold design. This mirror is another great gift choice idea.
All things Hair
Any hair dryer will make a perfect gift. However if you can afford to splurge, we really recommend the Dyson Supersonic. We own the limited edition – gift set version and it is a fantastic, top of the line hair dryer 100%.
Hair Curlers are a practical and highly requested gift. These are our choice for the perfect curls.

iphone 11 – is a popular amongst cheerleaders and a highly requested gift.
Phone Cases to go with the new phone are also a popular gift choice. We love this one, but you can get them pretty much anywhere.
Ear pods – again to go along with the new phone Air Pods are an essential addition and highly requested gift.
Stunt Stands – a great gift for any cheerleader but especially a flyer to help with balance, stunting and skills.
Magnetic ankle straps are used to help keep feet together in tumbling. We have the pink Perfecta Flips we got from Base Rehab at a cheer competition last year and they have been amazing. 100% recommend.
Water Bottle- any water bottle would make a great gift but the Hydro Flask is quite popular and definitely trending right now.
Yoga Blocks help with deeper stretches and can help with body alignment. These ones come in a range of colours and are available here.
Yoga Straps are perfect for holding body positions and stretching. We picked a set up from Amazon and have been very happy with ours.
The ultimate cheer bag. The Rebel Dream Bag holds everything a cheerleader needs plus space for the extras. With two sizes available and a huge choice of sparkly and lux designs, there is a bag for everyone.
Cheer Prints – the perfect way to decorate bedroom walls. We love Jerry from the Netflix show ‘Cheer’ in this house. So we decided to design a print with his most memorable and encouraging ‘mat talk’ quotes. Get it here.
Another useful / practical filler gift idea. These cute hand sanitizer holders clip onto the side of your cheer bag so that it’s always easily accessible. This cheer one is called a Pocketbac Holder and you can get it from Bath & Body Works.
