Gift Guide for Female Tennis Players

If your girlfriend/wife/sister/daughter plays tennis and you would like to get her something a little bit different for Christmas, then perhaps you’ll find it in my gift guide for female tennis players. I have had a couple of husbands contact me in the past, asking for advice on what to buy their tennis-loving better half, so I know first hand that there is a definite need for this guide.

For some reason I have gone for a green theme. You may have noticed that I have also recently changed the colour theme of my blog to green. It is either due to my recent plant-based diet ūüĆĪ or it could by my Irish roots shining though ūüćÄ.

If nothing convinces you, or you are looking for a tennis present for a guy, then read my gift guide from last Christmas here.

1. Lucky in Love Envy Print Racer Tank. I feel I should make a joke here about this top making your opponents green with envy at your tennis skills, but that is certainly not the case when I wear it… It’s a great tennis top though!

2. Lululemon Lost in Pace Skirt. This is sold as both a running and tennis skirt. I have never run in a skirt, and I’m not sure I ever will, but I have no doubt I would love playing in this skirt. Just look at that swish!

3. Nike Women’s Aerobill Featherlight Winter Visor. You might wonder why you (well, she) would need a visor in winter, especially if you are in Europe and play most of the winter indoors. Well, they also double up as great sweat- and hair-bands.

4. S’well Bottle (Waikiki). Probably the most stylish water bottle in the world, hands down.

5. Tiffany Charm Bracelet. You will score major brownie points when she sees that little blue box (though if she is your girlfriend, be careful she doesn’t think it contains something else..)

6. Sweaty Betty Super Grip Yoga Mat. If she cares about avoiding injuries, she’ll make good use of this cute yoga mat for stretching out before or after a match.

Good luck with your Christmas shopping and I’m sure she will love-all that you get her!

Christmas Gift Ideas for Tennis Lovers

I am a bit rubbish at buying Christmas presents. I have given up trying to think of imaginative presents for my mum, 3 brothers and their other halves, 6 nephews/nieces, my partner and his 2 kids…and so most of them get a bottle of Italian wine (not the kids), some handmade pasta or an Amazon gift voucher.

However, I do like to try and treat my partner with a special present to thank him for putting up with me all year. Now that we are both tennis lovers, I have been thinking about the best tennis-related gifts that I could get him (hoping he won’t read this), that he could get me (hmmm, actually hoping he will read this!), and how I could instead treat us both this Christmas.

So read on for my Christmas gift ideas for tennis lovers.

For him

1. TopspinPro. We may already have one of these, but this is something that I would have bought my partner in the past for Christmas, had I known about it. You can pick up one from my affiliate link.

2. Eprius London weekend bag. Like me, my partner dislikes those enormous branded tennis bags in garish colours, and so I think he would really appreciate this large stylish bag to take to tournaments.

3. Under Armour Wristbands. I love the length of these wristbands, and they look so good on Andy Murray…

4. TheraBand FlexBar. In my recent post on the steps to a more powerful tennis serve I mention the importance of pronating the arm. These flexible bars are great for strengthening the forearm, and are apparently also useful for treating tennis elbow.

For her (i.e. me!)

5. Idawen Bocce Lubn tennis bag.¬†Yes, I know I already have two tennis bags, but as I keep trying to explain to my other half, you can never have too many (tennis) bags! Idawen are having a 20% off Black Friday sale, but if you miss this don’t worry as I have two more 20% discount vouchers that I will be giving away on Instagram in December/January.

6. Tory Sport Performance Visor. I think white visors are so classy, and so necessary to protect your face from the sun.

7. Monreal London Signature Drawstring Dress. Another tennis dress that can easily take you from the court to cocktails!

8. Emily Austin String Blings. I discovered these racket vibration dampeners made with Swarovski crystals on Women’s Tennis Blog, and was immediately enchanted.

For both of you

I would also love to treat both of us to a week in an adult tennis camp for the New Year, in a place that would allow us to get away from the foggy, cold climate of northern Italy. If you would like to do the same, take a look at these organisations that can set up tennis holidays for you:

Happy Christmas Shopping!
