Gift Ideas for an Oakland Raiders Football Fan

Do you need gift ideas for a Oakland Raiders Football Fan in your life? If you live with or know a "die hard" NFL Raiders Fan like I do, then you know you will be buying him or her gifts for their birthday, Christmas or other special holidays must include NFL licensed items. I am always on the "look out" for new items that my guy would enjoy receiving under the Christmas tree.

For over 12 years now, I look for something unique that is in "silver and black" with the Oakland Raider's logo on it. We own already assorted types of clothing, drink cups, decals, trinkets, jewelry and more. You name it; we want it! In fact our first year together as a couple, I made him a quilted lap throw using the NFL licensed logo fabric that you can find at most fabric stores during football season.

In fact, my man is so serious about his Raiders that we have a white, black and silver Christmas tree! Every year I pick up a few new ornaments to add to our collection. We have a Christmas hat in plush silver and black fur, blanket throws to keep warm and of course a new set of pajama pants each year.

T-shirts, lounge pants and other apparel is perfect for a birthday or anniversary gift. Even for Mother's Day and Father's Day! For Christmas, little gifts that fit into Christmas stockings are easy to find. Just look for decals, pencils or pencils, playing cards, gloves, and any other small item that will fit into your stocking. A gift certificate to a local store or online website that carries NFL licensed merchandise would be happily received by your fan as well!

I hope give you some new ideas for gifts to give to your Raider's fan too.

Hats for the Raiders Fan too!

The best gift idea for a Raider fan is a hat. Every Christmas I buy at least one article of clothing with a Raiders logo on it for my Raiders fan. It is a tradition. It seems like by Christmas he is need of a new pair of lounge pants, a new t-shirt and a hat.

He has at least one short sleeve t-shirt in grey, white and black and also one of each in long sleeve fro the cooler weather. Then there are the NFL Oakland Raiders jackets that are collected in the closet. The Oakland Raiders have the best fans in America and it shows in the apparel available to purchase.

Then there are the hats! I can't even number the amount of different ones with Raiders logos. Most of the ones we own are ball caps, but there are cowboy hats, Santa hats, hard hats and funny hats. A new hat is always a great gift idea.

This style is warm and comfortable for those cool days or evenings. It has a retro-style look that is really popular today. It is a long-sleeve shirt with nice lettering.


NFL Raiders Clothing for Women

Men are not the only Raiders fans there are! Women are big fans of sports events including football. Whether belonging to a Fantasy League or going to actual games, women want to be dressed to show their support of their team. In our house, it is the Raiders!

I too enjoy a licensed logo item of my favorite team as well. In fact when we went to a game in Oakland, California several years back, I too needed to have a Raiders outfit to wear and show off my support of the team. My favorite color is pink so I like the pink and white Raiders items available to us girls. I mix and match the pink and black colors too for variety.

Women will love receiving anyone of these NFL gifts to show off their love of their favorite football team. They even have a great selection of jewelry sporting their favorite team logo. I have Raiders earrings of course to go with my outfit.

For the Little Raiders Fan in the Family

Oakland Raiders fans come in all sizes! There are cute baby outfits, hats for kids and bibs like the our newest grandson is wearing! Or pick up a blanket with logo for your little one to keep warm in whether at the game or at home watching on the television.

There are outfits for kids of all ages in both the classic black, silver and white and little girls can have pink outfits with the Raiders logo. Our granddaughter started out in a cute one piece outfit but as she has gotten older, she know sports a cute t-shirt and skirt when watching a football game with grandpa.

Typically the whole family that have a local team to support are all fans. A great gift idea is to get everyone a matching shirt to wear on game day! There are many ideas for the little Raider's fans in the family!

Start out the new Raider's fan in style! We buy each new grandchild in our family one of these outfits.


Raider Christmas Decoration Ideas

For years now, we have been collecting different Raiders logo, silver and black Christmas ornaments to put on our very retro-style silver tinsel Christmas tree. We love how this silvery metal tree shines in the lights. Not all of our ornaments have the Raider's logo, but we mix in black, white and silver ones to fill the tree. Each year we are on the "hunt" for new ornaments with the Raider's logo though to add to the collection. On top of the tree is a silver star of course! I made a tree skirt using fabric with the Raider's logo as well.

We also have nutcrackers that are Raiders, Christmas stockings using Raider's fabric and a wreath with Raider's objects woven into the silver and black ribbon on a white wreath. To some we may seem fanatical, but if you are a Raider fan, then you will understand! Us Raider's Fans are dedicated to say the least. Just take a look at the characters at any Raider's football game! Merry Raider's Christmas!

Gift Ideas for Tailgate Parties

If you are fortunate to live near Oakland, California and attend Raiders home games, then items for tailgate parties might just be the right gift for your special man. There are so many items and ideas for a party from coolers to aprons to paper goods. There is even a really nice 48 Qt Cooler Cover to put over the cooler you already own.

The grand-kids gave their Grandpa a folding camp chair in silver and black which has a built in cup holder for his favorite beverage. Of course, with the Raiders logo on the chair. Don't forget to bring your NFL logo Nerf football to toss around while waiting for the game to start.

Oh, and of course don't forget the food and drinks!
