Updated on November 9, 2014

Sports Fans Enjoy Unique Sports Gifts

Do you have someone who enjoys sports on your gift list? There are always the usual gifts to give like balls, bats, team shirts and caps but perhaps you want something a bit different this year.

My family is always interested in sports and as you can probably tell from this lens, my favorite sport is baseball and my favorite team the Cardinals. When I wrote this page I picked out Cardinal logo products, but these same ideas will fit with most any sport or team.

So if you are looking for a gift for a sports lover, just think of their favorite team and check out the ideas I have listed on this page. I'm sure your gift will be met with enthusiasm and your sports lover will treasure their gift.

Happy Shopping

Five Unique Gifts for the Sports Fan

  1. Team Forest Face
  2. Baseball Novel
  3. Autographed Ball
  4. Sports Team Watch
  5. Trip to Spring Training

Watch with Team Logo - gift for sports lover

A watch is always a thoughtful and useful gift. For your sports enthusiast you will want to choose a watch with the logo from their favorite team. These watches can be purchased in a range of prices to fit your budget. I have listed the ones I found with the St. Louis Cardinal logos, but they are available for most sports teams.

My husband received a Cardinal logo watch for Christmas and wears it all the time. He is always getting compliments on his watch.

This watch has a very classic style. It is a great dress watch.


Unique Gift for Sports Fan - Cardinal forest face

I love these forest faces. I took this photo on the lane to our friend's farm. When we saw him I told him I loved his Cardinal forest face. He said his daughter had given it to him as a gift. What a great gift!

As I searched on Amazon I found that these are available for many different teams. I think this would be a unique gift for the sports lover on your gift list.

We received one of these for Christmas and have in hanging on a tree in our backyard. It is hanging where you see it clearly from our sliding doors. Everytime my 4 year old granddaughter sees it she says it is her Dad. It sure makes a great conversation piece.

Support your favorite team with this delightful forest face. It easily attaches to any tree in your yard. I have had ours hanging on our tree for a year now and it withstands the elements very well.

AutographedYadier Molina Baseball - a fan favorite

Sports fans always enjoy autographs. You can search online for an autograph from a favorite player. This autograph is on a ball, but you can find autographs on many different items. Perhaps you'd like it on a special team photograph or a photograph of your favorite stadium.

      I'd take any 'St. Louis Cardinals' related gift (LOL), but an all time favorite would be a trip to Spring Training. My brother would choose the Yankees. :)
