The Best Gifts for Sports Lovers

Here are the five sports-related gifts that we are loving this year.

When the holidays roll around, it can be challenging to figure out the perfect present for those special people in your life. But if any of your friends and family members are sports fans, we’ve got you covered with ideas. No matter the sport or team, there are unique gifts that will suit everyone from a golfer to a football fan. Here are five of our favorites this season.

Personalized professional baseball bat

There’s probably nothing better than getting a professional-level bat made by a famous company for those obsessed with America’s favorite pastime. Oh, and how about getting it personalized? That’s precisely what the Cooperstown Bat Company offers.

Maple Pro Wood Baseball Bat, $109.99 to $139.99 (

Choose the bat of your choice—we like this white-and-tan bat made of maple and birch—and get it personalized. Add a message or a signature, or, if you’re feeling really enthusiastic, both.

Wallet made from used NFL uniform

A new wallet is always a solid gift. But for a football fan, one made from an authentic NFL jersey is golden.

NFL Game Used Uniform Wallet, $250 to $350 (

While it looks like your typical leather wallet from the outside, the interior features lining made from jerseys worn during NFL games. Each wallet features at least two colors on the inside and the team name embossed on the front. It even comes with a tamper-evident hologram sticker so you can look up to see which game the jersey was last worn in.

Ballpark blueprints

Does it feel like the sports lover in your life would live at the stadium if they could? Well, why not bring the stadium home by gifting luxe blueprints of their favorite team’s home base. No matter what sport they’re into—golf, soccer, football, baseball, etc.—this site has a fitting product to accommodate it. Here’s an example:

Rose Bowl Map, $60 to $195 (

This wall art blueprint is crafted on museum paper and depicts every detail of the stadium. Specify both dimensions and frame color to fit the recipient’s personal aesthetic.

Ticket stub diary

Being at the game is the highlight for any sports fan. Help them remember those blissful moments with a journal designed to preserve and display the tickets from those events over the years.

Ticket Stub Diary, $16.95 (

The sleeves can handle all different sized tickets with a notes section to write down memories from that day. It will be a gift that keeps on giving for years to come.

Stanley Cup popcorn maker

Get ready to make that hockey fanatic very happy this holiday season. Although you can’t get them the actual Stanley Cup, you can gift a popcorn maker in the shape of the iconic championship trophy.

NHL League Logo Stanley Cup Popcorn Maker, $79.99 (

Yes, the popcorn popper is designed to look identical to the NHL trophy—with the added capability of making a snack (does it get any better?). The bowl of the trophy also transforms into a popcorn serving bowl. Now everyone can eat like a champion.
