You need to buy a present for a sports fan. You don’t have much time. What do you do next? Read this list and pick out the perfect sports gifts for your friend or family member.

Yes, we’ve done all the thinking and searching so you don’t have to. So now simply choose the gift that suits your budget and their tastes and get ready to get a big thank you when they tear open the wrapping.

1. Beef up a classic book gift

There are SO MANY great sports reads out right now. From classics to new biographies and much more besides. As long as you know the sport they like, a quick trip to your local bookstore and a chat with a helpful staff member will sort your right out.

Now that’s a good sports gift all on its own. But if you want the cheat’s way to making it look like you reeeeeeaaalllly put some effort in, pair it with something else. Preferably something edible or drinkable that suits the book. So, for example, if you’ve got a book about snooker, why not grab a few English ales to go with it.

Or if your book is about the Tour de France, splash out on a few continental cheeses. And if that’s too complicated for you, just take a look at the cover and head over to the store. Head straight to the candy aisle and look for the fancy chocolates. Either get them a box you know they’ll love, or add a bar in a similar color scheme to the cover. They’ll look great together and a gift that took you all of 10 minutes to get suddenly looks uber fancy.

2. A night of sport

As long as you’re also into your friend’s sport of choice, why not treat them to an extra special viewing session. And no, we’re not talking about “Netflix and Chill”. Although depending on who you’re treating, maybe that’s not totally off the table…

Anyway, this is a great gift because you don’t have to do much more than write the card now. And then you can both enjoy it at a later date. Tell them for the next big game (or fight or match or race, depending on what they’re into), you’re going to have them over to your place.

While they’re there, order their favorite takeout. Chill some of their favorite drinks in the fridge. And stock up on something sweet for dessert. In short, it’s watching sport turned up a notch.

3. Lookin’ good

Now this one requires you to get a little lucky. Head to your local charity store or vintage store. Then take a look at the sportswear. You just might stumble across a cool vintage cap or jersey sporting their team’s logo. If you do, bingo, you’ve got the perfect sports gift.

If you don’t spot one in a store but you have a little extra time, you can always search online. Ebay or Etsy should have options to ship close to you. But, of course, you’re going to need at least a few days of lead in time for that to work out!

4. Vacay, okay?

Everyone loves a good vacation. And it certainly feels like everyone needs something to look forward to! So why not treat your pal to a trip away? Make it sports themed and you’re onto a stunning sports gift. Of course, this can get pricey fast, so make sure you have the budget for the travel, accomodation and tickets to the sports event.

But if you do and you both want a trip away, the world’s your oyster. Literally. You could go to France during the Tour de France. You could see a Yankee’s game in New York. How about a spot of cricket in the UK? There are so many fun ideas you can have with it.
