Do you know a guy who lives and breathes sports? Don’t we all? And while his love
of all things sports-related might be readily apparent, that doesn’t always equate to
it being easy to buy him a gift. This might be a bit of a generalization, but guys don’t
seem to drop as many hints as ladies do. When it comes time to buy a gift for the
dude who seems to have everything, it can be a bit frustrating. Your man’s love of
sports can make it a bit easier, however, so read on for the best gift ideas for the
sports obsessed guy. Customized bobbleheads are optional.

Sports Clothing

This seems almost too easy but it rarely fails. Get him a jersey or tee that represents
his favorite team or his favorite player from said team and he’d be smiling from ear
to ear. If he likes to play sports, hit up a place like REI, Dick’s Sporting Goods, or
Under Armour for clothes that he can use to get his sweat on. It doesn’t have to be
clothing, either, as he’d surely love a pair of wireless earclips for working out, a
FitBit, or a sports watch. Does the man in your life love to shoot hoops? Get him an
authentic Michael Jordan jersey or, for true originality, get him a pair of majorly
unique basketball socks from Stance.

Show Interest in His Sport of Choice

When it comes down to it, your main squeeze would probably rather you show
some interest in his favorite sport more than any material gift that you get him. Even
if you are a truly girly girl at heart, learn more about football, basketball, or
whatever his passion may be. You could even download an e-book about football.
You won’t believe how touched he will be. Of course, tickets to a sporting event are
never a bad idea either. Pack up a tailgating picnic and surprise him for a day that he
won’t likely soon forget. If you don’t have any inside connections, hop on the team’s
website, hit up Craigslist, or try StubHub. Word of warning, however: Once you buy
him tickets to a sporting event once, you’re putting yourself in marriage potential
territory. If you’re not ready for that, just be aware!

Men Love Man Crates

If you spend any time online, you’ve likely seen the ads for these. They are fantastic,
as they run the gamut from outdoor and personalized to drinking, grilling, and
eating crates. The sports man crates include things like the Legends of Baseball
crate, NBA barware crate, and college barware crate.

Find out what sports he loves the most and go for it. He’ll be tickled pink … eh, blue. Tickled blue.

Unique Sports Related Odds and Ends

Do you have a big gift for your sports-loving guy but are looking to add to it in a fun
and interesting way? Check out this list from Uncommon Goods. From the Hockey
Mug (with net!) and the TPC Sawgrass Golf Ball Cufflinks to the Snow Ski Wine Rack
and the Home Plate Welcome Mat, anything on this list will satisfy your sports lover
and then some. The Smashockey game and Penny Soccer Game could be something
you could play against one another to get the competitive juices flowing. He’ll be
blown away that you took his love of all things sports into account with any of these.

Go for the Great Outdoors

While not every sports-loving guy is into the outdoors, it’s usually a pretty safe bet.
If he’s into camping, hiking, biking, or anything like this, hit up REI and get him some
gear. Better yet, book a campsite and surprise him with a night of grilled hot dogs,
his favorite craft beer, and s’mores. Use this link to find a campground near you. And don’t forget the bug spray!

Get anything of this list of best gift ideas for the sports obsessed guy and he’ll be
your number one fan soon enough.
