Welcome to the gift guide that will fulfill all of your gym nerd needs; with something for the baby tumbler, coach, adult gymnast, fan or hardcore athlete on your holiday gift list. There are even some DIY options for you crafty types.

1. X-Bands. If you are tired of your stupid grips getting loose, these are for you. The X-Band is a safety band that prevents gymnastics grips from coming undone and it comes in lots of fancy colors.
