It can be hard gift-shopping for kids, especially if they have a ton of energy and are really active. A simple toy or game might not hold their focus for long. If you’re looking for a gift to give to an energetic kid like that, you’re in the right place.
Whether you’re shopping for a young athlete, dancer, gymnast, or just someone who’s always on the move, you can find the perfect gift for their busy lifestyle. Get inspired with this guide to the best gift ideas for active kids.
Gifts for Outdoor Fun
For kids who like to get outside and play, you can take the fun to the next level. Outdoor toys and playsets help keep kids active and grow their imaginations, too!
Kids who play outside also need a safe surface to catch them when they fall. Playground tiles, mulch, and even playground turf offer some extra cushion and protection while children are hard at play.
Playground flooring is the perfect way to revamp an outdoor playground for your kid. In addition, our playground flooring is fall height certified for extra safety.
Our playground mats are perfect for use in high traffic areas of the playground, such as under swing sets or at the base of slides. Playground mats prevent your mulch from getting too worn down and creating bare, muddy spots. They also provide a bit of extra cushioning in high-impact areas, though most playground mats are not rated for fall height.

Gifts for Cheer, Gymnastics, and Tumbling
If you know a kid with some awesome tumbling skills, we’ve got a few gifts in mind to keep them safe and having fun. Whether it’s cheer or gymnastics, these gifts will support your kid while they’re practicing their favorite moves.
Give your kid the perfect surface to practice their skills. From folding mats to balance beams, and even wedge mats, we offer gymnastics mats to suit all skill levels. We also offer teaching equipment to give new gymnasts a strong start with the basics.
They’re sure to delight any young gymnast or cheerleader, and you’ll love how easy they are to take care of. Our mats absorb impact from tumbles and flips, and the durable vinyl covering makes them easy to keep clean.
Whether you want to find equipment for a gymnastics studio or just for practice at home, there are plenty of options available. Choose from highly trusted equipment brands such as Tumbl Trak to provide practice equipment for tumbling, bar work, and more.

Gifts for Traditional Sports
It seems like young athletes are always looking for another opportunity to practice or play, so why not gift it to them? If you know a kid who loves to play sports, we’ve got a few gift ideas for you.
Young athletes are always in need of space to practice, and if you have some yard space or room on your parking pad, we’ve got the perfect solution. Outdoor court tiles! Give your kid the gift of an actual court.
Why play on a concrete pad and have to guess at where the game lines are? Whether it’s volleyball, basketball, tennis, or more, outdoor sports tiles will make your kid feel like a pro.
It’s not every day you can head out to the putting course. For the days you can’t, your own personal putting green is the way to go. You can choose from small portable mats, or create your own larger, custom space.
No matter what you choose, your kiddo can practice their putting skills for their next big showdown at the windmill.
Gifts for Active Play
It’s great when kids are active, even when they’re playing inside. Get inspired with gifts that are perfect for playrooms, bedrooms, and basement hangouts.
Flooring can be fun when you have foam tiles. Soft, comfortable, and non-toxic, interlocking foam tiles are the perfect flooring for the playroom.

Colorful and fun, an area rug is the perfect play mat for any room. Rugs are soft, comfortable, and provide some warmth so the kiddos don’t have to play on a cold floor.
