Dec 05, 2011

Sports fans enjoy Christmas way more than your average Joe because there are so many cool “sports” gifts that they can get in their Christmas stocking. Sports fans are crazy about sports stuff and they seem to have that “more more more… it isn’t enough” spirit.

So it shouldn’t be too hard to pick something out for your dad who is a big Green Bay Packers fan, because he’ll probably get excited over a plain green and yellow pencil sharpener. But just in case you really want to wow your sports fans, here is Kidzworld’s top 10 gifts for sports lovers.

#5 – Patch or Button

If you need to get something like a stocking stuffer or just something on a low budget, a button, pin or a patch is a really cool gift. Just make sure it isn’t too flashy and out of control. Small and simple is the way to go.

#4 – Cheesehead

The Green Bay Packers have more fans than any other team, so there is no shortage of cheeseheads. This is the ultimate gift for a Packer fan to make a complete fool of themselves… which they love to do.

#3 – Tickets

A true sports fan doesn’t need anything more than to be at the game, so buy some tickets to a local game. It doesn’t have to be Super Bowl tickets and they don’t have to be in the front row… but make sure you get an extra ticket for yourself to join in on the fun.

#2 – 30 for 30

# 1 - Autographs

If you are broke for Christmas, an autograph is the best present and it's free so don’t even sweat it. What you do is go to your local team’s practice, gametime, or airport arrival time and wait for a player to show up and get them to sign something.

It's hilarious how people compare these two. Ronaldo is all about that hard work and when it comes to who is the best player in the world, it's undoubtedly him But then again, Leo Messi is a touch of god's perfection. We have to understand, we'll never ever see a player like him. Ronaldo is only the best player in the world because Leo Messi is from another planet. #TeamMESSI ♥
