There are thousands of different Karate products out there, but most of them are not so great as a Christmas gift. Luckily I’ve found 15 original and unique Karate holiday gift ideas for you.

These Christmas Karate gifts are guaranteed to make every Karate practitioner happy.

1- Custom bobblehead Karate Figure

Would you like to give someone for Christmas their personalized bobblehead Karate figure? Now you can! Just send these guys a photo and they’ll hand-sculpt an astonishing personalized Karate figurine. Using your photo or any other photos as references, they can create custom Karate figurines that resemble your loved one. These cool Karate figurines are made of polymer clay and are about 6-7 inches high. I just can’t resist them! What an original Xmas gift!

2- Custom Karate Ring

This ring is the ideal gift for Karate practitioners. Both original and beautiful, the ring is shaped as a Karate belt (obi), and it expresses both your dedication and your Karate skills. The ring is highly detailed and is made of sterling silver, but can be mirror finished if you choose to. You can add up to 4 stripes (silver or gold) on each end of the belt. No stripes version is also available. This ring is available in more than fifteen sizes. That’s definitely a great Xmas gift! PS: I actually ordered one for a friend!

3- Karate Wood Sign

This beautiful Karate frame shows one of my favorite Karate quote: “A black belt is a white belt that never gave up.” The white letters are painted on a black background, mimicking a blackboard. Each sign is framed with premium white pine, and you can choose one of the six available choices of stain. This Karate sign is made of natural wood; therefore, no two signs will appear identical. Each has its own color and is truly unique. The sign comes with a sawtooth hook attach for hanging easily. That’s an excellent Christmas gift perfect for the dojo, the office or even the bedroom!

4- Personalized Karate Necklace

This personalized Karate necklace is hugely popular. It’s made of gold-colored pewter and represents a karate practitioner performing a jump kick.
