With Christmas season coming in hot, most of us need to step it into gear if we want to have presents under the tree before the big day. However, the hardest part about gift giving, besides braving the chaotic malls during holiday season, is simply figuring out what to give. It becomes even more complicated when you have loved ones with a variety of likes and interests.
With this in mind, let’s take a look at some great gift ideas for that special someone you know that loves to cook and entertain, but is also a huge sports fan.
A personalized oven mitt
No kitchen is complete without an oven mitt hanging from some part of the wall. Whether your gift recipient is a fan of cooking yummy desserts or slaving over roasted chicken and potatoes, they’ll need a nice, heavy-duty mitt to take those treats out of the oven. If you’re familiar with their favorite sports team (of course you are), then you can get it put right there on the front. Every time they host a Sunday night football game and pull food from the oven for guests, they can bask in the glow of their buddies’ jealousy.
Backyard BBQ’s will take on a whole different meaning if you have the right grilling equipment
An engraved BBQ set
The classic BBQ set normally includes a knife, tongs, spatula, fork, and sometimes a grilling or basting brush. But sports fans who love hosting backyard barbeques at home or during tailgates already know this and if they don’t already own these essential grilling items, they probably want them! A bonus is that you can even engrave the wooden handles for a more customized and original present. If your gift recipient is a die-hard fan of Tom Brady and you catch her checking odds for his next matchup day and night, you may want to choose the Tampa Bay Buccaneers logo or Brady’s squad number. The options are endless when it comes to personalization so try to keep it original.
A set of coasters
Every sports host needs a good set of coasters. With people around the house eating dips and drinking beers to watch the big game, they’ll all need places to set their drinks down. The best part is, like most kitchen accessories, they can be personalized. Customized coasters can add style and decoration to your loved one’s next big game night and everyone will want to know where they can get their own set.
A heavy-duty cooler for tailgating
Tailgating is a no-brainer for sports fanatics who want to cheer on their favorite team while cooking up a storm in the parking lot. And when you’re out there on a hot summer’s day with the sun beating down, having iced cold beers on hand in a cooler for everyone is a must.
Coolers can also serve as tables for snacks and drinks when tailgating outdoors
