Sports fans live and breathe their teams. When buying gifts for the sports fans in your life, you may feel stuck because they seem to have everything. But there are a ton of options for sports fans. From New England Patriots blankets to Yankees jerseys, here are some unique gift ideas for the sports fan in your life that is sure to be a home run!
No matter what team they support, getting your loved one tickets to a game is the best gift you can get them. There is nothing like sitting in a stadium and watching all the action play out live, surrounded by fellow fans, eating sausages and drinking beer. If going to a game isn’t your thing, give your loved one both tickets so they can bring a fellow fan who will enjoy the game along with them! Buying tickets to a game can be pricey, but nothing beats sitting in the stands watching your team do their thing live.
Game tickets may not be in the budget, but there are other options out there that will make your sports fan jump with joy. Whether it’s hockey, football, or baseball that gets your loved one going, there are tons of options when it comes to memorabilia and they come in a number of different price ranges. Sure, you’re going to clean out your 401K for a baseball signed by Babe Ruth. But a set of Boston Red Sox pint glasses or Pittsburgh Steelers tailgating chairs aren’t going to cause you to remortgage your home and will make your loved one the envy of their friends around the grill.
Game Day Apparel
Of course, you can always go the easy route and grab a branded t-shirt, sweatshirt, or hat. But if your loved one’s entire wardrobe is emblazoned with New York Yankees logos and pinstripes, you probably need to think a little further outside the box. Official jerseys are always a great gift to get the sports fan in your life. Don’t know which athlete you should go with? It’s always safe to choose a player who is long retired but retains a historical significance to the sport. Get them a Lou Gehrig throwback Yankees jerseys, and they’ll start telling you about Lou and the rest of the 1927 Murderer’s Row team and the House that Ruth Built.
No matter how many things a sports fan has representing their favorite team, you can still find something unique. At the end of the day, choosing something for the sports fan in your life is more about the thought you’re putting into it, and acknowledging the passion they have for their favorite team does just that.
