Looking for a unique gift for a sports fanatic? Here are just a few ideas that could be worth looking into.
If you’re looking for a big gift, try booking some game tickets – this is a gift that is certain to be appreciated. Ticket pricing can vary depending on the game. By and large, weekday games tend to cost less and the size of the teams competing can also play a big part. You can also save money by not choosing a seat in a prime location. Always use respected ticket sites and try to book early to secure a ticket. Remember that games may not be the only sporting events worth looking into – motorsport races and athletics events could also be worth booking.
Custom sports clothing
For a personalized gift, you could try looking into custom sports clothing. There are companies out there that do apparel such as custom baseball uniforms – this could involve getting their name and a custom number printed on the outfit. Try to buy clothes from quality brands and retailers. You may even be able to find custom sports clothing directly through team merch sites.
For a sophisticated by small sports gift, why not consider some sports-themed cufflinks? These could be golf ball shaped or football shaped, or they could contain a team logo. This is a great gift for sports lovers that often have to dress up in a suit – allowing them to mix business and leisure.
Sports-themed bottle opener
Drinking and watching sports often go hand in hand, and so a sports-themed bottle opener could be the perfect gift. Like cufflinks these could be creatively shaped or they could feature a team logo. These are great small gifts that could be an idea stocking filler or a small gift for a work colleague (although probably not for use within the workplace).
Smart sports equipment
Smart technology is now being incorporated into sports equipment. Such equipment can record stats that can then be read on your phone using an app. For instance, there are smart baseballs that can record the speed at which you throw and the spin, allowing you to perfect your throw and compete against friends. Such a gift could be great for a sports fan who is also tech-savvy.
Stadium screen prints
For another quirky gift option, you could consider buying a screen print poster of the recipient’s favorite stadium. There are even signed stadium blueprint posters available, offering a trendy piece of sports memorabilia. This could be a great item for decorating a mancave.
