Earlier this week, Riedell ice skates were included in The Wall Street Journal’s list of the top 50 gifts this holiday season. Riedell is also included in ABC World News’ list for top Made in America products for this holiday season. We are thrilled to be included in both lists! While we’re sure every skater would be happy to receive a pair of Riedell ice skates or Eclipse Blades this year, we made a list (and checked it twice!) of holiday gifts that are sure to be a hit with the ice skater in your life:
For the Rink:
A Zuca Bag is a perfect gift for skaters (or coaches) on the go. Check out Riedell’s Zuca bags in our 2012 Catalog.
Blade guards, soakers & towels: essential for proper blade care and are available at any skate shop.
New laces. It’s smart to have extra laces on hand at the rink, just in case.
A skate bag kit is a great gift for skaters who are at the rink training and competing most of the week. Ideas to include are: hair ties, bobby pins, Chap Stick, band aids, granola bars, and a gift card for the rink’s concession stand.
Champion Cords are an innovative training product designed by our friend and PSA-endorsed coach Sheila Thelen. They are designed to help skaters learn and improve: Alignment, Position, Muscle Memory, Awareness, and Technique.
Training clothing (tights, gloves, and practices dresses) is always a great gift for skaters.
