Here are some great last-minute gift ideas for that sports nut you know. Some of the gifts below can be purchased as gift certificates. All of these gifts can be purchased for under $50.
Tickets to a game
Winter is actually a great time to be a sports fan. The final week of the NFL season is on Sunday, and the NFL playoffs start on Jan. 3. Meanwhile, the college football has plenty of bowl games taking place right after Christmas. The NBA, NHL, and college basketball are all in full swing.
One of the most useful resources to purchase tickets to a game is StubHub. The online ticket website has every game imaginable: www.stubhub.com.
Sportsgifts.com has all types of things to buy a sports fan, like mugs, shirts, watches, and many other fun stocking stuffers. Many of the gifts can be purchased for under $25. Amazon and eBay are also great sources for sports products.
Dick’s Sporting Goods, Champs, Modell’s, Sports Authority, Sports Chalet and other sporting-good stores offer a large assortment of products from duffle bags to football helmets. A sporting-goods store is the best place to shop for someone who actively plays sports. Some of the top manufacturers include Nike, Adidas, Reebok, and Under Armour. There is usually a large array of products to buy those who enjoy camping, fishing, and running. REI is a great source for snow sports goods.
Subscription To Sports Illustrated And ESPN the Magazine
ESPN the Magazine is even less expensive. The current sales price is $9.95 for 26 issues.
