If you (or your derby loved one) are prone to injuries, then a roll of KT Tape is the perfect stocking filler for you! These 16″ rolls of pre-cut cotton strips provide pain relief and aid the recovery process of many, common muscular and ligament sporting injuries, including: knee pain, plantar fasciitis, shin splits and general neck, back and shoulder pain.

7. Toe Stops
Toe Stops are another great little Xmas gift idea. One of the most popular makes has to be the Gumball Toe Stops which are specifically designed with roller derby in mind. They are made with all-natural rubber; aluminium stems and come in two different lengths (short vs. standard). And, priced at only £19, they make a great addition to any skate.
Every skater needs bearings. Fact. One of the most popular brands of skate bearings are Bones Reds. They offer the greatest combination of performance, durability and low cost in the industry. And, because they offer near Bones Swiss performance at a fraction of the cost (only £18 for a pack of 8), they have become the bestselling bearing brand in the U.S.A.
9. Target Balm
Your roller boy or girl will love you forever if they find one of these little tins in their stocking or under the Christmas tree this year! Target Balm Bumps and Bruises and Target Balm Sprains and Strains are the perfect roller derby aftercare treatment. Made from 100% natural substances, they will soothe all those derby bumps and bruises and aid the recovery process for any sprains or strains. Priced only £9.99!
10. Mouth guard
Safety is sexy! Every derby player needs a mouth guard. And, if yours has seen better days recently, perhaps it’s time you replaced it. The SISU Mouth Guards (Protech Dent) are just £16.50 (for 1.6mm or £23.25 for 2.4mm) and have proved to be one of the best gum shields on the market – allowing users to drink, breathe and talk with ease! They also come in a number of bright colours for players to choose from.
With so many options to choose from, there really is a roller derby stocking filler to suit every taste and budget! But, if these are still too expensive, Roll With It also have a number of awesome ‘For the Love of Derby’ silicone wristbands available, priced at only £1 each! Sorted.
