Great Gifts for Girls Who Love Ballet

Updated on August 20, 2015

Many girls love ballet, so ballet related gifts can be a big hit. They can be great for all occasions like birthdays, Christmas and Hannukah as well as making wonderful recital gifts. Ballet schools have recitals once or twice a year. It's common to give gifts as a reward for all the work involved in putting on a show.

Some great gift options are books, CDs, ballet related toys, ballet instruction DVDs, jewelry boxes, clothing and ballet bags. The following is a list of some gifts you can consider for any budding ballerinas in your life.

See 10 Great Gifts for 3 to 7 Year Old Girls for more gift ideas for young girls.

Ballet Stories

Ballet Stories is a book and CD combo that includes these famous ballets: Cappelia, Giselle, Sleeping Beauty, the Nutcracker and Swann Lake. The book and CD have an overview of each story and excerpts of the music. This book is probably best for 3rd grade and up.

Ballerina Treasure Music Box

This beautiful jewelry box comes with a ballerina figurine that dances to the music of Swan Lake. It comes with four drawers, that make it easy for girls to organize their jewelry. While this looks and sounds beautiful, it is small. The dimensions are only 6" x 4" x 6".

Tinkerbell's Learn Ballet Step by Step DVD

The Tinkerbell's Learn Ballet Step by Step DVD allows kids to practice their ballet steps at home. They can use a chair in place of a barre. The DVD is about half an hour in length and teaches a lot of basic ballet steps. This can be a great supplement to ballet class.

The Orb Factory Sticky Mosaics Ballerina

The Orb Factory brand of sticky mosaics has a ballerina craft that is recommended for ages 6 and up. This is a wonderful gift for girls who love ballet and crafts. It comes with 4 ballerina designs and more than 3000 sticky foam and jewel pieces.

Ballet Bag

Every ballerina needs a ballet bag to hold her dance shoes and hair supplies. The Girls Dance Duffle Bag Hot Pink and Black is one cute and affordable option. It's quite small, so it's better for younger kids. Older dancers will need a bigger bag.

Born for Ballet T-shirt

The Born for Ballet T-shirt has sizes for ages 2 to 11. It comes in white, natural and pink colors. It has a picture of a ballerina with the words Born for Ballet on the front. The shirt is available through amazon.com but ships from the UK.

Nina Ballerina Magnetic Dress-Up

The Melissa & Doug Deluxe Nina Ballerina Magnetic Dress-Up doll will be a big hit with younger ballet fans. This will probably be best for the 3 to 5 age group. The doll comes with 27 pieces of mix and match clothes and shoes.

The Nucracker Illustrated Books

There are several beautifully illustrated books based on the story of The Nutcracker aimed at different age groups. The Nutcracker is a popular ballet that is widely performed during the Christmas season, so a book can be a great holiday gift. The original Nutcracker book was written by E. T. A. Hoffmann in 1816. It was titled The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. The Nutcracker ballet was based on the book. The score was written by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.
