Being the huge sports fan that I am, I undoubtedly have sports related items on my birthday and/ or Christmas list. Usually this revolves around sports team apparel, such as retro jerseys, hats, and socks.
In this post, I’ll take a look at some ideas to help you get the best gifts for sports fans.
Whoever came up with this idea is likely very rich, as this is one of the cooler concepts that I have seen in a while. Fanchest is a company that sells curated gift boxes of officially licensed sports gear. It markets itself as an easy gift solution for any sports fan, as well as providing great value.
How it Works
On the website there are curated boxes that change twice annually-in April and October. There are standard box, baby box, youth box, and memorabilia box.
The standard box contains 5 items from your favorite team, an $80 value, for $59! Items that have been included in these boxes in the past include blankets, hats, t-shirts, and other licensed merchandise. The Fanchest website shows youth types of items that you may receive.
The memorabilia box features the 5 items from your favorite team, PLUS a signed mini helmet of your favorite player from the chosen team (a certificate of authenticity is included). This box costs $190.
The youth box is a great value at only $39. The baby box costs $49, and all the included items are gender neutral.
I cannot rave enough about how great of a gift idea I think this is. And others agree. Almost every review I’ve seen of this product I’ve seen is 5-star. I will definitely be getting these boxes for my family and friends going forward.
Another popular gift for the sports fan is Memorabilia. This could be anything really; some examples conclude a bat used by a favorite player, an autographed picture, a game worn jersey, or just about anything that is autographed by a former sports figure.
If you are interested in sports pictures, whether autographed or not, I recently wrote an extensive article discussing some great places to buy sports pictures for your home, office, or fan cave. You can check out this article by Clicking HERE.
My favorite website for buying Sports Memorabilia is the appropriately named SportsMemorabilia.com, which offers an impressive array of memorabilia items for all budgets. These include signed apparel, helmets, balls, gloves, and photographs.
One of my favorite aspects of SportsMemorabilia.com is deals of the week section. You can shop by league go find deeply discounted items for your collection. There is even a section with deals under $20!
I can not recommend SportsMemorabilia.com enough for locating that perfect item for the sports fan in your life.
One gift that I love getting for birthdays and holidays are funky sports themed socks. My favorite brand of sock, including sports themed socks, is Stance Socks. These are truly the best socks that I have ever owned. They are very good quality and they look amazing.
HOME AND OFFICE ACCESSORIES
There are thousands of accessories for the sports fan’s home and office. Pretty much anything you own can be bought as a sports-themed item.
By browsing Fanatics.com, my #1 Rated website for buying Sports Team Apparel, I was able to find 9000 accessories home and office.
Some of the best gift ideas for sports fans that I found among these accessories are the Gentlmen’s Toiletry Gift box ($59), the team themed beverage refrigerators ($599-$799), and the team themed tabletop bar ($350). These items are just a few of the great gift ideas you can find at Fanatics.com.
GiFTS FOR WOMEN
If you are looking for a cool gift for the sports loving woman in your life, look no further than Touch by Alyssa Milano. This clothing line has amazing selection of stylish clothing.

Additionally, Dooney and Bourke makes some incredible sports-themed purses and bags. I know my wife has her eyes on a Raiders themed Dooney and Bourke purse that I will be getting for her birthday.
THROWBACK SPORTS APPAREL
Another great gift idea is throwback-style sports
apparel. Every sports fan loves gear that reminds them of the glory days of their favorite team or player. The best source of throwback sports apparel is Mitchell and Ness Nostalgia Company, which offers throwback sports team apparel for every budget.
Sports Themed Watches
Recently, I did a lot of research into sports watches
and prepared a full review of my favorites. These watches would make a great gift for any sports fan. There truly are sports watches for every budget, so take a look at my Sports Watch Review.
There really are some great gift ideas out there. In addition to these, check out my review of places to buy sports apparel for additional ideas. You can find many great items that the sports fan in your life will absolutely love.
