Desperate for last minute gifts for your skater? Here's my last couple of years of skater gift suggestions.
Christmas gifts for your coach.
Merry Xmas to your Skater-2012.
Merry Xmas to your Skater-2011.
I haven't been on ice much this year, so I haven't seen any new skating things to buy. So what about....
Fabric! and Crystals! or a Sewing Machine! Doesn't matter if your skater is a guy or a gal, everyone needs costumes and sparkles, boot covers, practicewear, jackets, whatever. Even a series of Learn to Sew lessons can be a wonderful gift. Okay, maybe you'd get resistance if your skater is under 18 or an adolescent boy, but most adult skaters would be grateful. Let's face it, if a guy skates, does he even care what people think?
I know what somebody out there is thinking, "This woman would recommend giving a donation to the Heifer Project in someone's name as a Christmas gift." Well, yes, if you made a charitable donation in my name I'd be happy with that as a gift. I've reached the age where 'useful gifts' is perfect!
Do you reject the sewing idea? Okay, give them some freestyle or public skate cards. Those fit everyone!

First you help them out on the ice:
|And they grab you and take you down|
Watching them grab for the boards can be amusing too:
Finally after a long hour at the rink, you go home and take a well deserved nap!

You come home from the rink and tell someone you love how you spent your day working on your skating and they respond:
|Yeah, who understands what we say except other figure skaters.|
P.S. The Ice Doesn't Care will be down for a few days while I upgrade my computer. Sorry, no Sunday funnies this week unless a miracle occurs and everything works the first time.
