Holiday Gift Guide: Stuff
More recommendations of potential presents for football fans, including electronics, accessories, barware, home decor and so much more
Put yourself on Christmas morning as a kid. It wasn’t the books that drew this kind of reaction, and it certainly wasn’t the clothes either. It was the STUFF.
Below is a veritable hodgepodge of hand-picked ideas for the football fan in your life. Most of the team-branded items are available for every NFL franchise and I’ve also included non-branded merchandise. If you want more help, the Football Lifestyle archive is a treasure trove and I’m happy to assist with any questions via Twitter or email.
Let’s get to it...

I have two favorites here—the watch band and the growler keg. I own the former and it’s perfect for the football fan who doesn’t like to make a loud statement. The latter’s ideal for the craft beer enthusiast who likes watching games at home. Alternate idea for the Bleacher Creature doll, by the way? Get a player from your most hated rival and stick it in your dog’s stocking.

Nothing will make someone appreciate their new Madden game gift quite like sticking one of those handheld electronic football games under the tree too. Show ’em how far digital football games have come. I also love the pint glasses, but it’s quite clear the team needs to modernize its playbook a little. Slip those football leather coasters under ’em and you’re set.
