With the coming of the colder weather, so too does our soccer holiday gift guide. We know that buying the right gift for the soccer lover in your life can be tough. So we’ve broken it down into a few categories to make it easier on you.
We have soccer gifts for mom, dad, players, and fans. Pretty much everyone is covered here.
Soccer Holiday Gift Guide For Players
Soccer is known as the beautiful game and many players care just as much about their looks as they do their game. Fortunately, you can take your style from the field with you in a variety of street shoes from the likes of Nike, adidas, New Balance, and more. The soccer player in your life will thank you for upping their shoe game and giving them something fresh to slip into when the game is done.
There is nothing quite like getting a new pair of cleats for a soccer player. You feel faster, sharper, and just that bit more aware of every touch and kick of the ball. The Nike Tiempo Legend is a cleat that has stood the test of time and is loved by many players. With the recent release of the ultra-soft Calfskin leather edition, this famous cleat has gotten that much better. If the Tiempo is not your player’s cleat of choice, shop all the latest colors from their favorite brands and give them something that will make their eyes light up.
SKLZ Backyard Goal
There is a saying that repetition is the mother of skill. Give your player the gift of skill with the SKLZ backyard goal. Whether it’s a pick-up game in the backyard, shooting for fun, or intense training this goal will be perfect. At 12′ x 6′, it’s the perfect size for a game and it’s easily portable packing down into a convenient carrying case.
G-Form Shin & Ankle Guards
Shin guards are generally the forgotten item when it comes to soccer equipment. They’ve been practically the same since they were invented until now. Enter G-Form with their soft, flexible shin guards that only harden on impact. NOCSAE approved and machine washable, these are the most comfortable shin guards around. With sizes for both kids and adults, they even have ankle guards to take away the pain of late tackles. The soccer player in your life will be grateful you’ve helped them upgrade what is otherwise an uncomfortable piece of equipment.
Barcelona SKLZ Star Kick
If you’ve got a soccer crazed kid in the house that doesn’t always have someone to play with, we’ve got the perfect gift for you. The Barcelona SKLZ Star Kick allows them to head out on their own and kick until their heart is content with no fear of losing the ball. The Star Kick comes with a waist strap that then attaches to a ball pouch via an elastic kinetic chord so the ball returns back to the player after every kick. On top of improving their touch and pass, it’s a lot of fun to ping the ball around and then receive it back straight away.
What makes soccer so great is you really only need a ball to play. Give the best toy ever invented to the player in your life. The new Champions League Trainer Ball is one that stands out due to its new look. It’s a replica of the ball players will see on TV during some of the biggest games in the world. There are plenty of options to pick from though and its hard to imagine any player being upset about receiving a pristine new ball to play with.
If you’ve ever stood between the posts while your friends rifled shots at you, you’ll know how important a good pair of goalkeeper gloves are. Whether you’re a full-time keeper or just playing pick-up with your friends, a pair of gloves is a good thing to keep in your soccer bag. Our soccerloco goalkeeper gloves give you all the comfort and cushion you need to stop any shot kicked your way. We also have a wide selection of gloves for every budget and skill level.
Soccer Holiday Gift Guide for Fans
Licensed Soccer Jerseys
Wearing your favorite team’s jersey is like waiving a flag from the highest mountaintop. It’s as central to supporting your favorite club as cheering when they score. Every soccer fan needs one. Whether it’s authentic or replica is down to personal preference. If you want to know the difference, check out our handy guide that shows you the differences. One thing we can guarantee is the soccer fan in your life will LOVE getting a jersey of their favorite player or club.
With the weather cooling down, a beanie makes for a very useful stocking stuffer. However, it goes to a whole new level when your soccer fan’s favorite team is on that beanie as well. If you’re looking for that little something extra that will be appreciated but doesn’t break the bank, look no further.
If the soccer fan in your life already has every jersey their club has released in the past 20 years, then a t-shirt is a great alternative. Soft, comfortable, and stylish, these t-shirts will have the soccer fan in your life looking good and representing their club in a whole new way. With shirts for a number of clubs as well as Nike FC and adidas Tango, there is something for everyone.
