It’s never too early (or too late) to start shopping for great gifts for all your fabulous friends and family. Whether it’s a birthday, holiday, or any day, the glamorous always love a good gift! That’s why we have compiled some of our favorite gift ideas for the showgirl or guy in your life!

Note: This list does skew a bit feminine, as I am recommending products that I know, love, or lust after. I welcome any other suggestions! Oh, and this post may contain affiliate links, for which I might receive compensation (at no cost to you); however, I am not being paid for my recommendations.

Small and Sassy (under $25)

Sewing Tips ($3+) You can never learn too much about costuming and these Patreon tutorials are educational gold! Christina Manuge of Manuge et Toi Design
Creating TIPS ON TAP tutorials, consultations, & designer sneak peeks!

GlamJam Glitter Stick ($20) We were first introduced to this stuff back in 2017 when RedBone did a show with us on Maui. She’s awesome and so is this stuff! All-natural and has just the right amount of shimmer (not recommended for my pole dancers).

Hand Grip Strengtheners ($10) Not exactly glamorous, but certainly essential, grip strengtheners are a girl’s (and guy’s) best friend for all things aerial.

Bobby Pin Holder ($8+) If you are one of those people who can keep track of all your bobby pins, please teach me your secrets! I love this graphic one, but it’s not always available, so this one is a good choice, too. Magnets are a must!

This Dark and Adorable Make-up Bag ($20) Who doesn’t love a little darkness? Whether you are storing black eyeliner, black mascara, or a severed finger hidden in a tube of lipstick, this handy bag will hold it all.

Burlesque Books Worth Binging ($20+) If you can’t snuggle up with your favorite Burlesque dancer, you might as well settle for your favorite Burlesque book!

Educational Manuals for Pole and Aerial ($20+) I have more manuals and fitness education references than anyone I know. It tends to happen with over 20 years in the industry. Check out my favorites!

Wax Pencil ($3+) For all your rhinestoning needs! If you’ve never had the pleasure (and the pain) of rhinestoning your own costumes, then you don’t even realize how essential these little bad boys are. You can find decent varieties on Amazon or check out Gothfox.

Skull Lip Balm ($8) Totally gratuitous skull addition. I love skulls.

Cheeky Coasters ($8+) Maybe it’s old-fashioned to need coasters, but we love these from Cabaret & Cocktails (maybe we are biased), these pin-ups found on Etsy, or heck, any funny Etsy find.

Glitter Lips ($20) We love this incredible line of Glitter Lips from Stay Golden Cosmetics. Personal favorite: Vamp!

Pole Physics Lotions and Sunless Tanners ($25) Finally a lotion designed for pole dancers!

Moderate and Marvelous ($25-75)

Menagerie Wine Stopper ($30) We are Cabaret and Cocktails! Obviously, I’m going to recommend some winey ideas! I love these wine stoppers and probably have a dozen!

Subscription to Winc ($50+) Okay, so depending on how long you sponsor your friends, this could end up costing way more than $50, but I love their selection of low-sugar wines, plus shipping right to my door. Want some free wine on me? Click HERE.

Custom Decanters ($49+) I mean, have you seen these? I am in LOVE with the Intemperance Collection, but you can’t go wrong with these high-quality customized decanters.

More Bar Necessities ($25+) We love our fancy bar accessories! Check out a list of our favorites in our Gadgets to Elevate Any Bar blog.

All the Pleasers ($50+) The sky is literally the limit with any of these vertigo-inducing heels! I must have a dozen or more pairs. This was the first one I ever bought and this was the last pair. I always recommend going with an ankle strap and don’t be afraid to buy all the glitzy glamour you can stand!

Large Sewing Kit ($26) I cannot tell you how often I have needed last-minute costume corrections. A good sewing kit is so important!

Lunalae Polewear ($50+) Lunalae is quickly becoming one of my favorite lines of polewear. With lush colors and lots of crisscross harness details, you’ll love these tops, bottoms, and accessories!

Pricey, but Perfect (Over $75)

Showstopping Accessories ($50+, but let’s be honest, most items are over $100) If you are looking for something fun, fabulous, and flirty, then look no further. I love their glasses, pasties, and even fascinators!

Blissy Silk Pillowcases ($85+) You have no idea how much you want these deliciously soft (and washable) silk pillowcases from Blissy. Just thank me later.

Catherine D’Lish Boudoir Dressing Gown ($499) SWOON! We couldn’t even decide on our favorite color! Sadie was thinking pink, maroon, or teal; Lily was leaning towards emerald green or black; Miss F-Bomb was eyeing Aubergine, and I was salivating over the Red. My second favorite is definitely this Teal Silk Velvet Burnout that screams indulgence. My birthday is coming up, as is my un-birthday … if anyone was wondering.

Private lessons with your favorite Performers ($90+) Obviously, I’m going to give a shout-out to Miss F-Bomb and her private lessons, but who doesn’t love a private lesson? No matter what you are interested in learning, from assel twirling to Burlesque basics, pole dancing, and aerial, you can get an incredible lesson almost anywhere you live!

Aerial Love ($100+) Anytime you can splurge on less-than-necessary aerial equipment, go for it! This heart-shaped Lyra is always adorable!

Wonderful Wigs ($95+) I’m not knocking the basic Amazon wig selection, but if you’ve ever tried the real deal, then you know why they are worth the extra price tag. And the crazier, the better. And have you seen this artist?

Boudoir or other awesome photography ($250+) There is nothing quite as extravagant as a photoshoot just for the fun of it! I am obsessed with the boudoir shots from Selfish Boudoir and the creative costuming of Heather Tabacchi Photography. And obviously, the incredible work done by Wulf Pack Creative Team!

Big Heart Bag ($105) This gorgeous, shiny heart bag is fabulous, and it even fits your Macbook! What?!

Sparkly Magic ($100 +) Can you please just look at all this sparkly magic? From pasties to harnesses and maybe a merkin or two, this shop is amazing!

Ostrich Fan Boa ($800+) I mean, yeah, you can find some feather fans and boas on Amazon, but let me tell you, you get what you pay for. These are fabulous and the color selection is divine!

DivaDolly Suitcase ($549) This suitcase is everything the traveling star could need! It’s like the world’s best dance bag on steroids! The only downside is that they don’t carry it in my signature black.

Other ideas that will fit the bill of all-time favorite gifts: trips to Vegas, Tropical Pole and Aerial retreats, and BurlyCon, of course!
