As the celebration continues with more dances, Tchaikovsky adds a Russian inspired dance that isn’t represented by sweets, known as the Trepak. This burst of energy lights up the stage with dancers dressed in traditional folk garb.

So for my Russian inspired gift ideas, take a look at both the traditional folk elements of Russia as well as a few other items to help you keep warm if you were, say, in a snow covered St. Petersburg. And I had to add one of my favorite animated movies inspired by the Romanov family.
