A couple of years ago I posted some gorgeous gift ideas for the mini ballerinas in our lives - it has been far and away my most popular post. So, I thought it might be an nice idea to provide an updated version of the gift guide (including some pretty stocking fillers!) in the lead up to Christmas.
1. A beautiful ballerina doll makes a lovely gift for the tiniest of dancers - this one is by Alimrose (from Limetree Kids)
2. She might want to wear her tutu in the water, but it isn't always practical...this sweet bikini from Zimmermann would please any lover of all things pink and girly
3. For inspiration in her bedroom, a ballet print would make a beautiful gift
4. To protect her eyes from the glare of the stage lights (whether they be real or imaginary), you could try the Felidae sunglasses in sorbet pink from Goose and Dust
5. No ballerinas wardrobe is complete without a leotard (or ten); this one from Bella and Lace ticks all the boxes
6. For a very special tiny dancer in your life, a ballet shoe charm from Tiffany & Co
7. This Nailmatic nailpolish (from Wild and Whimsical Things) is the prettiest shade of ballet pink, and as it washes off with soap and water it wont upset any of the stricter ballet teachers!)
8. During rehearsal breaks a ballet-inspired story would be a welcome diversion, the classic Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfeild is a perfect choice
10. Make any outfit dance worthy with a tulle wrap skirt which will tie over any outfit (and can be worn a a cape if a superhero mood strikes)
9. An iphone case from the Australian Ballet is sure to make older dancing divas happy
11. A bun is sweet, but a bun with a bow is sweeter! This one from Dotty Dandelion is divine, and makes a great stocking filler
12. When her feet are tired from all that twirling, a beanbag like this one from Kip & Co is a lovely place to rest
13. After a long day of dancing, what could be sweeter than some ballerina-print pyjamas like these by Powell Craft (from Childrens Salon)?
I hope these suggestions made it a little easier to buy the perfect gift for the mini ballerinas in your life - if you have any suggestions for more gift ideas please do comment below xo
