Who to buy football gifts for and what is out there to buy for them?
The first thing that you need to consider and get right is what club they support. The last thing you want to do is buy a Tottenham supporter an Arsenal gift. That would be a real ouch! Certainly don"t assume that because the Dad supports Chelsea that the wife, son or daughter supports them too.
How do you find out which team they support, well just ask and you can be sure they will tell you. Don"t just think about buying football gifts for men and boys as there are loads of women and girls that are nuts about football and many play football too.
There is an unbelievable amount of football gifts out there that can be bought and most football fans are happy to receive anything to do with their football club from a keyring to a ticket to see their club play. This is probably the ultimate gift you could buy if they are not a season ticket holder and if they can travel relatively easily to the ground as there is nothing to beat watching your own club play football win lose or draw!!
Personalised football gifts are fast becoming the thing to give as a memorable present. You can buy framed pictures of club dressing rooms with players named shirts hanging up with the middle shirt customisable with the recipient"s name and number and with a place to sign the picture alongside replica autographs of the club players. This is unfortunately not available for all clubs however the list of participating clubs is getting larger.
Another couple of options similar to the Dressing Room picture are a Club magazine cover and a Club Programme Cover. These are available for the same clubs as the Dressing Room picture and are official club merchandise.
A beautiful present that will be really appreciated is the football club history in newspapers. This comes beautifully bound in a Leather or Leatherette book that can be embossed with the recipient"s name along with a presentation certificate on the inside cover. It is a truly magnificent gift and is available for over 60 different football clubs. This is something that will be treasured for many years to come.
For a more reasonable football gift why not buy a personalised football calendar where the lucky recipient has their name cleverly placed within each individual month"s picture. The truly great thing about this football gift is that the calendar can start at whatever month you choose. If you are giving the football gift in April then the calendar can run from April through to March of the following year.
