1. Anti-Blister balm – Breaking in new skates can be painful. This is a great stocking stuffer that can be a lifesaver when getting used to new skates. $7.49

Just throw in a couple of these moisture absorbent desiccant packs in your bag and eliminate moisture and control the smell.  Every now and then just put the desiccant packs in the sun and naturally clean them for an always fresh bag. Will last for years with normal care. $9.95

3. Sisu Fresh Mouthguard Spray – SISU Mouthguards are by far the top choice of derby skaters, but no mouthguard cleans itself, and most of us are guilty of not cleaning our guard after every use. Use this cinnamint flavored spray to keep things fresh in between uses and cleanings.  $11.99

7. KT Tape – As athletes, sometimes we have to keep pushing even though things hurt.  When an area of the body is injured through impact or over-use, fluid builds up causing inflammation and swelling.
