Gifts for Sports Lovers

Let's say the man in your life is a huge sports nut. Or your dad or brother is a football fanatic. Maybe your boss is a golf freak. If any of these statements apply to you, then a sports gift basket would make a great present for their birthday, anniversary, or even as a thank you gift. These baskets are full of everything sports, from cards to hats to snacks. Don't spend hours trolling the mall or browsing the aisles at a big box retailer; look into a sports gift basket and you know he'll be happy.

Why Do Sports Gift Baskets Make Great Gifts?

1) There are many different kinds of sports baskets. There are all different types of baskets out there that are sports-themed. You could opt for a basket that is devoted to baseball and full of things like trading cards, sportswear, memorabilia, and baseball snacks like peanuts and Cracker Jacks. Or how about a Super Bowl tailgating basket, filled with all kinds of delicious tailgating snacks? If you want to really go all out, you could even slip in a couple of tickets to a big game.

2) Sports baskets are versatile in every way. We've already talked about the variety of sports gift baskets for men and how virtually every sport has a theme for a basket, but what about the cost? This is also extremely flexible, with prices ranging anywhere from $30 on up. The cost of each basket is based entirely on what's inside of it, so if you have more expensive items and a lot of them, obviously you can expect to spend more on the basket. However, if you're trying to save a few dollars, you can opt for a smaller basket with less expensive items.

3) Ordering baskets is a cinch. They don't sell sports gift baskets in the mall, so it's not like you can just head out and pick one up. But this just makes it easier - instead of going out, you can stay right at home and order your basket online or over the phone. Just do a search at Bing or Google, and you'll find thousands of websites devoted to selling these types of baskets. Browse around a bit and find a basket you like and a price you're comfortable with, and then you simply select it, put in your personal information, and your order is processed. Phone orders work much the same way. Baskets can be delivered to you or to the recipient, whatever is easiest for you.

4) Sports gift baskets are great any time, any place - It doesn't matter what the occasion is, these baskets make a great gift. If your hockey fan husband is having a birthday, get him a sports gift basket. If your football loving father-in-law is recovering from surgery, get him a football fanatic gift basket. If you're trying to woo a new client who loves golf, get him a golf theme gift basket to seal the deal. Clearly, these items make ideal any occasion gift baskets for men.

    I think my husband would absolutely love one of those gift baskets. Especially the baseball gift basket - and I think he would probably expect some baseball tickets in there too!

    Very cute ideas! I love the sports themed baskets for men, they are more fun than the usual chocolates and teddy bear.
