Top Tailgating Gifts for Football Fans
Show Your Favorite Fan Some Tailgating Love
Every Saturday in the fall, college football fans gear up and get ready to watch their favorite teams. On Sundays, NFL fans are doing the same. They may be road-tripping to a stadium to tailgate and cheer with tens of thousands of their closest friends. They may be settling into their favorite recliners in front of a large, flatscreen tv. But if you are looking for a gift for your tailgating fan, look no further. This is your tailgate gift stop!(Photo credit: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/images/results.a...|)

Tips and Recipes!
First, somewhere to sit.
You may notice that I am posting a lot of South Carolina and Clemson products. That's because I'm a South Carolinian, born and bred! Maybe you are an Alabama fan, Georgia Bulldog, Florida Gator, or an Arkansas Razorback. Perhaps you don't even like college football, but you are a Falcons fan or a Carolina Panther. Hopefully, you can still benefit from my suggestions and search for the products in your own team's logo and colors.
This one is similar to the ones we have. Canvas chairs like these are so comfortable that I have even fallen asleep in one after a day of driving, then having a beer or two at a nighttime game. The cup holder built into the arm of the chair is a wonderful bonus.
Dress your car! - Door Magnets
I included the Hurricanes in honor of my husband, who grew up in Miami. His older brother took him to Hurricanes games in the old Orange Bowl before it was torn down.
Flags for your car!
Show your spirit on the highway! Make your car easier to find in the giant parking lot!
You will probably notice that I chose plenty of South Carolina Gamecocks merchandise. That is because I am a Gamecocks fan! Living here in the beautiful state of South Carolina, one must choose allegiance: South Carolina Gamecocks, or Clemson Tigers. I try to be a good sport and pull for the Tigers when they are not facing off against my Gamecocks.Please feel free to look for your own teams, or leave a comment below suggesting some popular teams, and I will try to feature them!
What are the essentials? - Watch this short video and find out.
I have to have a tent. I'm fair-skinned and have a lot of skin cancer in my family, so I need a place to stay out of the sun. Even if you have a darker complexion than I do, you may want a shady place to relax after being out there all day.
Expert accessories - Avoid rookie mistakes
If it's a night game, you may want to hook up a light. Music is part of the fun before and after the game, and you certainly need to listen to the radio broadcast if you're not inside the stadium, so a radio is a must. Running down the car battery is a tailgating rookie mistake. So don't be caught looking like a rookie. Arrive prepared with your generator for all your power needs.
