Many guys love sports because of the excitement of the adrenaline rush they get when watching one competitor take on another. It may be an individual or a team. The thrill of competition is something that men enjoy, whether they actually play sports themselves or just watch from their living room couch.
Maybe you’re not much of a sports fan yourself and you’re generally clueless about teams, players and statistics, but that’s okay. There are plenty of gift ideas for boyfriends who are big sports fans that will impress him. You don’t really need to know much about his favorite sport, all he wants from you is for you to understand that he loves it. When you present him with a gift that celebrates one of his favorite things in life, he’ll really know that you care about his interests.
Okay, so since there are several sports that a man may like, I’m going to present some ideas for three of the most popular ones. Feel free to use these ideas or come up with some of your own.
Football – these suggestions refer to American style football that is popular in the U.S. and not European football (soccer).
An official NFL football – whether he likes to play some casual football on the weekend with the guys, or just enjoys holding onto it and tossing it around while watching the game, a real NFL football just like the pros use on the field is a winner.
A Great Moments NFL DVD – there are many of these that highlight real football plays, players and coaches that offer a behind the scenes look at the game.
Authentic NFL Jersey – find out what his favorite football team or player is and get him his own authentic team jersey. You can get him either an individual player’s jersey or personalize a team jersey with his own name.
Basketball – this is a sport where maneuvering and high jumping in order to get the ball into the net creates lots of action.
A Basketball Throw Blanket – he can stay warm underneath a throw blanket decorated in the colors and images of his favorite team. Throws are very decorative and can be used to cover a couch or bed.
LeBron James Basketball Shoes – LeBron James is one of the best players in basketball and also one of its biggest stars. Your guy can be walking around in style wearing a pair of designer shoes endorsed by LeBron.
Baseball – your guy will sit there watching inning after inning and get totally caught up in number of hits, bases stolen, pitcher throws and umpire calls.
An Authentic MLB Baseball Cap – baseball caps became famous because they are a part of every team’s uniform. If he enjoys wearing generic baseball caps, then he’ll really like getting one that sports the logo of his favorite team.
Baseball Cards – there are lots of baseball card collectors, and part of the fun is buying a box of cards that just may contain a really valuable player card. The two main card vendors are Topps and Upper Deck. You can get him a current collection of cards or an older set. Read reviews of each set to get an idea of what you’re getting.
