Here are some gift ideas ranging from apparel, accessories to equipment for aching muscles.

Toe shoes may need to be purchased by the people who'll be wearing them, but that doesn't leave you without options for gifts that will please the dancer in your life.

We've found some items that are both pretty and practical for the dancer of any age.

For a stylish warm-up

If she likes buttons and bows, tie dye and fur, Sock Dreams legwarmers are sure to make her happy. Colours, sizes and textures seem endless and best of all, they offer free international shipping. Prices start at US$13. Dancers who prefer more conservative colours might appreciate legwarmers from Australia-based Bloch. A$13.95.

No, they're not bra inserts. These are from Yamuna Foot Fitness and are said to be good for sore feet.

Treat the feet
