Are you shopping for someone who’s a bona fide football fan? You know who I’m talking about – the folks who go “all out” when it comes to their favorite college and professional football teams. These are the people who look forward to the fall season every year – not for the cooler weather, but because it’s football season.

They are the ones who plan their Saturday and Sunday activities during the fall around kickoff and game time – regardless of whether they’re going to a game in person or watching on television. These folks are true football “fan-atics” – which means they’re really easy to shop for.

    Thanks for the great list! I know two huge football freaks on my Christmas list to shop for this year, so a lot of these are something they would really enjoy! One of the football fanatics I'll be shopping for is my husband and he loves his tailgating, so another idea I had I wanted to share that I'll be getting him, is the Tailgater from our TV provider/my employer DISH Network. It's a portable satellite system that he can bring with him tailgating or camping easily since it only weighs 10lbs and is super easy to setup! I have no problem getting it for him this year, because it's one of the lowest priced satellite systems out there! Check it out at! :)
