4 Gift Ideas for a Sports Fanatic Husband



The man of the house is a crazed sports fanatic. Every autumn Saturday is a buffet of college football. Every winter Sunday consists of six hours of NFL games.

In the spring, it’s basketball. In the summer, baseball is on television every night.

What are some unique gift ideas that will thrill a sports-fanatic husband? Read on to find out.

1. A Trip to His Dream Sports Venue

If your husband could attend a sporting event anywhere in the world, where would he go? Has he always talked about visiting Madison Square Garden or Lambeau Field? How about Fenway Park or Notre Dame Stadium?

There are so many
iconic sports venues that he’s probably only ever dreamed of seeing with his own eyes. What better gift than a trip for two to attend a game at his favorite location?

It will be an experience he’ll treasure for a lifetime. This can be an especially good idea if your husband’s love language is quality time. He will treasure the memories he makes with you while enjoying one of his favorite hobbies.

2. The Perfect Sports-Watching Television

When your husband heads down to the man cave, what kind of television greets him? If it’s the old living room TV that’s on its last legs, it’s time to surprise him with a new one.

For well under $1,000, you can invest in a 70″ television that will bring his games to life. Make sure it’s a smart TV so he can download all the sports-related apps that let him keep up with his favorite teams.

You might want to be careful with this gift, however. He may completely disappear for entire weekends.

3. An Expanded Sports-Watching Package

What is your husband’s favorite sport? If it’s the NFL, get him NFL Sunday Ticket so he can watch any game he chooses on any device. There are similar packages for MLB, NBA and college sports.

This is an especially great gift if his favorite teams are outside of your viewing market. For example, if you live in Boston but his favorite NFL team is the Chicago Bears, he won’t see too many of those games on local television. With NFL Sunday Ticket, he’ll be able to watch any out-of-market game he chooses. This will be a fail-proof gift idea for any sports fanatic in your life. It will require minimal effort on your part if you are short on time as the holidays approach. 

4. Apparel

You can never go wrong with sports apparel for the sports fanatic. Whether it’s a
button down shirt with his favorite team’s logo, or a winter jacket that lets him show his sports allegiance in style, team apparel is a can’t-miss. Take a quick visit to your local sports equipment store and ask for some help from the associates. They’ll be able to pick out an item that will be perfect for your husband.

I’d highly recommend trying some of these four ideas that will be sure to thrill your husband during the gift-giving season, or any other time of year.
