I will always remember my gift I got for a secret elephant party 2 years ago during the holidays. They gift giver knew I loved Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and the budget was $25 dollars or less.
The gift I received was really terrible EVEN though the gift giver GAVE a BJJ related gift! The gift was a shirt with a very corny Jiu Jitsu drawing that I (nor anyone who actually loved BJJ) would ever wear in public much less at at the gym.
While I appreciated the effort to find a unique BJJ related gift, I never wore the shirt and I used it for cleaning my car.
Don’t Make the Same Mistake
This gift giving guide is for people who are not sure what to give for someone who is passionate about Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and we wanted to compile a list for those who are looking to buy a meaningful gift the receiver will genuinely love.
We will break down the guide by price point for gifts that have a high bjj utility or wow factor and a low chance of returns.
Without further ado let’s get into it!

$25 Dollars to $60 Dollars
Gym Bag or Duffle Bag. This is great gift idea as there are lot of different items to bring to the gym when training. A BJJ Practitioner will want a place to store his regular close, Gi and Training Clothes (especially a separate compartment for after training to store sweaty gear), wallet and phone protection, mouth guard and ear guards and a place to put shoes and flip flops. The most important being a wet/dry compartment to store the sweaty gear.

Budget Gi or Kimono. For apparel related gifts this one is the easiest to get the sizing correct as Gi manufacturers use a stand weight and height guide. Also when you buy on Amazon most reviewers will give their opinion on the fit relative to their size (which most will share that data).
The best color to buy is white as some gym only allow white color gis. A great budget gi in this price range Sansbul
Word of warning – if the person trains at a specific gym association called Gracie Barra then they are only allowed school provided uniforms so this would not be a good gift to buy. Maybe find out the the gym he or she trains at before buying.
$60 – $100 Dollars
At this price point there are some real outstanding gifts that one can buy:
A DVD or Online Course from one of the BJJ Elite Coaches and Athletes
The main source for Live BJJ Events and Competitions
A 93Brand Gi – a great Gi for the mid price range (really any gi under $100 is in the affordable category)
NextRoller 3-Speed Vibrating Foam Roller https://amzn.to/2Pxbdtk
$100 – $300
In this price range we will look at the best Gis on the market
HyperFly JudoFly Gi
Gold AreoLyte Gi
AP Albert and Prino Gis
Origin Gis – American Made from the threading to the finished product – The only Gi made in America from start to finish. Unique fabrics and plush feel make this a favorite in the high end range.
