The Best Gifts for Men and Sports Lovers this Holiday Season


By Kylie Ora Lobell

The holidays are near, and you know your partner would love a sports-themed gift. Unfortunately, while you want to get him or her an amazing present, you happen to know nothing about sports.

If you’re looking for the best gifts for men who love sports and football gift ideas coveted by fanatics of all stripes, you can start with the following possibilities. These gifts will show your partner you actually care about his or her interests:

Bon Appétit
You may be looking at gifts for men and women alike, so both you and your partner can enjoy the present. That’s where a 5-piece Cheese Board Set by Picnic Time comes into play. You can put it out on gameday when you have friends over, and show your support for your team without having to know exactly what a “safety” or “fumble” is.

If your special someone is more into baseball, you may want to scope out the selection on You can buy one of these wooden cheese boards with your partner’s favorite team on it—like the Circo Cheese Board & Tool Set emblazoned with the logo of the 2016 World Series Champions—and then consume delicious cheeses and wine together on a fun date night at home.

The Gift of Experience
You might not want to watch sports games on TV, but in person, it’s a different story. Make an exciting day date out of attending a local game by buying some tickets on Living Social.

There’s nothing like giving an experience that goes beyond just opening another gift. You can include a written plan for the day with the tickets (including how many hot dogs you will consume during the tailgate).

Keep Warm
In these cold winter months, you just want to snuggle up with your spouse on the couch. Cozy Microfleece Throws are fantastic football gift ideas because everybody needs a versatile, warm blanket—they make great gifts for men and women alike. Your partner will love receiving one adorned with the official logo of their favorite team on it. It’s the perfect way to show authentic pride throughout the season and beyond.

Shoot Some Hoops
Perhaps you aren’t looking for football gift ideas because your partner is more into basketball. If that’s the case, purchase the Portable Basketball Hoop with 44” Impact Backboard by Lifetime and place it in your driveway or backyard.

You and your partner can challenge each other to matches during football games’ halftimes, as well as play indoors all winter so you’re in shape for the spring and summer. Challenge the neighbors (or your kids) to get in on the action with a rousing group activity and some friendly competition.

Host a classy get-together next Sunday. The Picnic Time NFL 5-pc. Cheese Board Set from Kohl's can help you do just that, while still rooting for your team.
