Top 10 Holiday Gifts for Your Favorite ZIN

This is a post you're going to want to share! Tis the season for gift-giving, and the 10 ideas below (in no particular order) are guaranteed to put a smile on any Zumba instructor's face.  Send a subtle hint by forwarding this post to your family and friends. :)

1. Headphones: Walking down the street, on the train, cleaning, at the gym - we need our music. I've tried these Koss fitclips and they're a good choice, since they won't fall out while you're bouncing around!

2. Choreography Coupons: One of the things we value most is time in front of a mirror, listening to the same songs over and over (and over) again. A homemade coupon for uninterrupted choreo hours is like gold! This is a great gift from kids to their ZIN parent.

3. Dance teeleggings, socks, etc.: We love to dance and we want everyone to know it. These are some cute items to consider, but there are lots of options out there.

4. iTunes gift card: We need a lot of music, and one of the best ways to keep up with what's current is to download hit songs from iTunes.

5. ZIN membership: I bet many ZINs' partners/kids/friends have no idea that we actually pay $30/month to do what we do. One month, six months, a year - any amount of time is a thoughtful gesture to show us that you care about our hobby/business/lifestyle.

6. Dancer's Clock: I've seen this in real life, and I just love it!

7. Business cards: Networking is s big part of landing instructor gigs, so a nice set of business cards from Vistaprint or another service is a great, practical gift! ZINs get a discount, so it's best to create your own coupon and then place the order through the Zumba website with your ZIN's permission.

8. Teaching vacation!: Did you know Zumba instructors can sign up to teach classes at an all-inclusive resort? Instructors get to bring a friend; indulge in full food, drinks, and activities; and spend a week in the sun doing what they love - all for about $600 (plus airfare).  For more info, you can read my posts on travel teaching here and here

9. Professional photo shoot: If your favorite ZIN is serious about his or her business, a set of carefully staged Zumba photos could be a big help when creating a professional Facebook page, posters, and other collateral.

10. Zumbawear: Ok, this one is obvious... but, ya know, we can't help ourselves when it comes to Zumba tees, cargo pants, and bracelets.  Hint: shop the sale section of the website for great deals!
