If you’re looking for a gift for the special swing dancer in your life (or really any super niche sub-culture), look no further than Etsy – here are some of my favorite swing dancer themed items that you may want to gift or that you may want under the tree for yourself:

You don’t have to live in Austin to appreciate the beauty of The Fed, dance energy is universal – framed art prints make great gifts!

For those stray ties, security is just a few clicks away – take your pick of a Leon James or (what appears to be) Kevin St. Laurent

Did you know swing drummer/bandleader/dancer Josh Collazo has his own Etsy shop?  Pick up a mug for your favorite coffee/tee-loving dancer.

Maybe you collect vintage bric-a-brac and these figurines are just the thing to fill a void in your collection?  Props for the “jazz” themed shirt/sweater and the rayon print dress.
