The beautiful game is loved by girls all over the world. Known for its fast-paced action, free kicks into the top corner of the net, muddy shins, and nail-biting penalty kicks, football is one of the most popular sports.
Soccer gifts for boys are easy to find, but soccer gifts for girls on the other hand are a bit more challenging. Our research has been thoroughly done for you by our 14-year-old intern, Ryann, who lives and breathes soccer and its history. You will find a wide variety of valuable equipment and wacky, wild, and unusual items below.
The following are our top 10 suggestions for soccer gifts for girls.
Gift #1: Soccer Ball
This is a gift that would never go unused. Whether she is just playing football in the yard with friends or bringing it to training, a new soccer ball would be very practical. For a professional standard ball, the price ranges from about $20-$80 USD, so this could fit the price range for many families.
The most popular brands for a soccer ball are Nike, Adidas, Under Armor, and Wilson. Although these are the most popular, there are many other options out there. In addition, all the different designs and colors that are available will make it easy to find something that will suit a teen girl. Some even come with a carry bag. A professional level ball is one of the best gift I’ve received myself.
Age Range And Soccer Ball Size Chart
- Three years old or girls younger: ball size 1
- Three to five years old: ball size 2
- Five to eight years old: ball size 3
- Eight to twelve years old: ball size 4
- Twelve years to young women: ball size 5
Gift #2: Headband
This gift is very helpful for girls who play soccer. As soccer girls, whether that be at training, in a game, or just in the yard, it can definitely be annoying when her hair is always going in her face. What can solve this? A headband! There are endless different styles and designs for these, so it will be easy to pick one that fits her personality.
In addition to a cloth headband, a pre wrap can also be helpful. Pre wrap is more commonly used to put under athletic tape so it doesn’t stick to skin, but it is becoming more popular with soccer girls to use it as a headband too!
Since it is made from a thin and flexible foam it is comfortable, but also stays in place. There are so many different colors which makes it fun too. Pre wrap is cheap and easy to find, so with all of these things combined, it makes it a great gift.
Soccer Gifts For Girls #3: Soccer Rebound Net
This would be a fun and helpful gift for the girl you are buying for! There is a large metal rectangle with netting stretched on top of it, and it stands on the ground. The ball bounces off the tight net when it’s kicked, and this helps her work on passes and shots as well as ball control.
What is most appreciated about this gift is that the ball bounces right back so she will not have to chase it. This also helps build a faster reaction time. This gift is a little bit more expensive than the others, but it would definitely help her improve her performance.
Gift #4: Soccer Jewelry
Even though jewelry cannot be worn during soccer games, it is definitely good to have for a normal day! This is a fantastic gift for girls who love to wear jewelry, and there are so many types too such as necklaces, bracelets, earrings, etc. The necklace or bracelet could have a soccer ball charm on it, and earrings could match her team colors.
There are endless options when it comes to soccer jewelry, and I’m sure that no matter what is chosen, she would love to receive one of these gifts to show her love of soccer even off the field.
Gift #5: Soccer Kick Trainer
There are so many varieties of soccer kick trainers, and many brands and websites you can find them on. A soccer kick trainer can be very helpful for a soccer player. There is a strap that connects to the player’s waist with a long elastic string attached. (Note soccer balls not included and must be purchased separately)
At the other end of the string is a net bag or glove to securely hold a soccer ball. This can be helpful when working on juggling and kicking because she does not need to worry about chasing the ball after it leaves her foot. Soccer kick trainers can be found at many more stores both online and in person. Buying one of these would be extremely beneficial in helping soccer lovers increase their soccer skills.
Soccer Gifts For Girls #6: Sports Water Bottle
Being a soccer player myself, I know that having a good water bottle is very useful. She can bring a water jug to the soccer field, and can also use it while training. She may have a normal sized water bottle at home, but when it comes to playing soccer a larger one can be very helpful.
Buying an insulated bottle can help keep the water cold as well. The size that I have, as well as all the others on my team, is a 64-ounce bottle (half-gallon). By using the search term “soccer water jug” on Amazon, a range of great bottles show up that have both a good design and are useful. There are many different colors available for jugs, so you can find one that fits her personality.
Gift #7: Soccer Shirt / Jersey
Does she have a favorite professional soccer player? Someone who she is inspired by day after day? If she does, this would be a great gift for young girls. Options include normal cotton t-shirts, as well as match-style jerseys.
Even if it’s not an Olympic gold medalist, for girls who love soccer, supporting their favorite player by wearing their number is a fun way to show they are a fan.
Gift #8: Soccer Bag
This is an amazing gift for soccer girls because it is so helpful when going to training sessions and games. The bag can either be a soccer backpack style or a duffel bag shape, and many of them have a large main compartment for pulling together all of the gear.
The reason why bags made specifically for soccer players are helpful is because they usually have additional pockets designed for equipment such as shin guards, cleats, and water bottles, as well as a soccer ball compartment.
Gift #9: Cooling Rag
Even though this gift may not be the first thing you think of, it is something she may be very thankful to have. All she has to do is put the cloth in some ice water, and then drape it over her neck or face to instantly cool herself down during hot games or training sessions. She can use it by herself or share it with the team, and on a hot day, soccer lovers will be very relieved that they have this.
Soccer Gifts For Girls #10: Dribble-up Soccer Ball
This is one of the most expensive gifts on the list, but it’s a perfect gift idea. This special soccer ball has a chip inside that connects to a device such as a tablet or a phone, and on the screen, it shows guided and interactive videos to increase your footwork and skill level. The chip inside tracks performance and progress. You can find it on the website dribbleup.com, and your soccer girl will love it.
These soccer gifts for girls are ones that many soccer players of any age will love. They will help her increase her soccer skills, feel confident on the ball, and show her overall love of the game. Its is now time to play soccer!
