Christmas time is finally coming to town, which means lots of food, coziness, and gifts. That last one can be a real challenge, because it can be hard to find that one special gift which perfectly suits your loved one’s personality. Here we selected a few perfect and fun gifts for basketball lovers like us.
A basketball jersey is the perfect gift for the stylish and die-hard basketball fan. You can give them one of their favorite team or a more fashionable one for everyday wear. For a more personal touch, you can have a jersey made with their date of birth or another date that might be special to them.
Who doesn’t love a pair of socks for Christmas? They are such an easy gift to give and come in all sorts of crazy prints and colors. The brand Stance has a particularly wide selection of basketball socks. They vary from portraits of players to classic dunk shots.
This is probably one of the most quirky gifts to give to a basketball lover. The mug has a little hoop attached to it, so on those days it’s too cold to play ball outside on the court, you can shoot little marshmallows in your hot coco.
This gift is perfect for the eco-lover. The British brand Teal is all about recycling and released a collection in which they recycled the leather from old basketballs into Ipad cases, Laptop sleeves and wallets.
Books are always a great gift option. There are some great basketball related books out there. But this book is especially great. Basketball (and Other Things) by Shea takes readers through the most pivotal and ridiculous fan disputes in basketball history, providing arguments and answers to basketball's greatest questions. The book also is full of illustrations and fun facts like: ‘who had the greatest dunk of all time?’
What better way is there to finish off your look than a basketball printed bow tie. This gift is a fun one to give early in the day so they have no other choice than to wear it during the Christmas dinner.
