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. Here are some fun gift ideas you may want to consider for the football enthusiasts on your special occasion shopping list!

    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! :)
