Oh yes, its nearly that time of year again, the season of giving and goodwill…and Christmas soccer! I am looking forward to it for one reason in particular, I get to head back home to Ireland for 10 days. Good times! Instead of writing a review on soccer cleats, I decided to take time and share a list of Christmas Gift ideas to help if you shopping for a soccer player. Some are fun, some are a little different, but hopefully this list will help you out a little. As a soccer player, I would be happy to receive them all! Leave some feedback below if you have other ideas to share.
New Soccer Cleats
This one is pretty easy! If you want to check out the top brands, the most popular cleats on the market right now are the Adidas Predator X, Nike Mercurial Vapor V’s and Puma V1.10’s. My preferred choice and recommendation would be a little different, a pair of adidas adiPURE’s will be on the list of any soccer player! Approx $150.
A Soccer.com Gift Card
If you want to buy a gift but don’t know shoe or clothes size, why not get a gift card and let them choose for themselves. I can assure you that with the options available at soccer.com a gift card will always be a welcome gift! When you buy one, you can choose to mail a gift card or send it online! If you are waiting until the last moment, this might be the gift that gets you out of trouble! Approx your choice.
For anyone with a favorite team, a new jersey is a must! Also, bear in mind the World Cup is next year. Oh yeah, the World Cup. I am glad Thierry Henry used his hand to get the assist that knocked Ireland out of the World Cup. Thierry, if you read this I personally want to say you suck, and I hope France lose all 3 group games. With that out of the way, the US have qualified, and are in the same group as England. Now there are two jerseys you might want to pursue. Approx $60.
FRS Health Energy Drink
I was part of the initial roll-out of FRS a few years back, and I loved the stuff! It works great after working out to clear out free radicals that cause stiffness. If you have a serious soccer player on your hands it might be worth the investment. You can also take the free trial offer, and give the option, if they like it, to continue ordering! Approx $100.
Fathead Wall Graphics
This one is definitely out of the box…but is sure to please if you pick the right one! While I was in college, my Italian roommate insisted that we keep an A.C Milan decal on the wall, I didn’t fancy it so much. Fathead are wall decals that you can place on any wall, and easily peel off when needed. You can choose from many different players (including Beckham, Messi and a bunch of MLS players), or you can pick a team logo. Worth checking out! Approx $99.
Bumpy Pitch T-Shirt
These are the designer t-shirts of the soccer world! The range is made of a 100% cut and sew pieces ensuring that each item is fabricated specifically for Bumpy Pitch!In other words, they are super soft and fit really well. You have to try one to understand. I recently got myself 2 new tops, and I just love these things. Recommended! Approx $40.
Soccer Magazine Subscription
This is one of the safest Christmas gift options, but it works out to be a great gift. Include the fact that the subscription lasts for a year and it makes even more sense! I was subscribed to both Soccer America and Soccer360, hoping I find a subscription in my sock again this year! Approx $60.
