Buying Guide for Those Who Love Brazilian Jiu Jitsu – BJJ Gift Giving Ideas

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!

Under $25 Dollars

If you are on a budget combine the following gifts into a BJJ Gift Basket!

Arm Bar Soap

Arm Bar Soap –

BJJ Tees –

There are some nice BJJ themed tees that you can’t go wrong with giving… even if you don’t know what ooss means

Armadillo Finger Tape –

Fuji Flip Flops –

$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.

Meister Vented Convertible Duffel/Backpack Gym Bag

Elite Sports Warrior Boxing MMA BJJ Gear Gym Duffel Backpack Bag

Gold BJJ Jiu Jitsu Backpack

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.
