The Spinsterz How to Give a Hula Hoop for Christmas

I bet you are very excited to be gifting that special someone in your life a brand new hula hoop. We just have one very important thing that you MUST do in order for them to be really really happy with their present. 


Your hoop is wound up smaller than it's normal self so that it can be shipped at an affordable rate. What this means is that your hoop needs time to unwind before it can be used. 

Unpacking the hoop you are going to gift will do two things. 

  1. It will allow you to give a gift that can be used immediately.
  2. It will ensure that the hoop you give is a circle, not an egg. 

Let me touch on each one of those points. 


The first one has to do with the fact that your hoop needs a minimum of 12 hours to naturally unwind after it has been tightly coiled into a smaller box. If you do the unpacking before you gift it, it will already have had time to unwind and will be ready to form into a perfect circle. You can read more about this on our How to Unpack Your Hoop blog post. 

The second has to do with the first, if you leave your hoop coiled up for several days or worse yet, weeks, there is a good chance that it will never be a perfect circle, and that sucks for everyone. 

So please, unpack your hoop according to our instructions and give the gift of perfect ready to use circles!

When I first started hooping in 2010, I struggled to find other hoopers in my area (especially since I live in a smaller, rural town).  Since I didn’t know of anyone who already hooped, I decided to get people into hooping.  Since then, I’ve aided in fostering a local hoop community in my area.  It [...]
