Must-Have Holiday Gifts For Your Fantasy Football Fan

The perfect gift ideas for the fantasy football fan in your life - whether they're a coworker, friend, or loved one.

Tis the season to be jolly – even to that person who won’t tear themselves away from the television after 1pm on a Sunday.

You know who I’m talking about. As the popularity of fantasy football has grown over the last few years (now a reported 59.3 million players in the US and Canada), we all know at least one person who is a complete fantasy football fan.

Yet over the years, it’s been difficult to find gifts for said fans. That is, until last year, when ESPN’s fantasy analyst Matthew Berry launched a line of Fantasy Life t-shirts after noticing the need and lack of options in the market.

That seemingly set off a movement, because this year – you have options. While my list of fantasy football gifts was a bit limited last year, this year I’m on a mission to help you find the perfect gift or stocking stuffer for every type of fantasy fan in your life.

For your coworker

Coworkers with a love of fantasy football can come in several different shapes and sizes.

* Snag the Commissioner of your office league for Secret Santa? Get them Commissioner branded pint glasses to enjoy a beer in style while their eyes are glued to the Red Zone channel.

* Did you get the guy or girl who won their fantasy league? Get them the Championship ring they earned.

* Better yet, if you got the person who came in last in your office league, get pun-ny with a Fantasy Football for Dummies book to make sure they have no excuses next year.

* Or if you really want to help them out, get them a year membership to one of the dozens of fantasy football sites that offer premium, valuable content at an affordable price. Sites like Rotoviz provide fantasy football stats and analysis all year round along with podcasts and apps that can help your fantasy football fan make crucial start/sit decisions.

Give them knowledge or help them display their pride for fantasy football – all while staying within the $25 Secret Santa limit.

LIDS

For your friend

You’ve heard them talk smack all year long. But instead of taking it personally, you’re making it personal. Give your fantasy football fan or foe a customized hat that lets them show pride for their fantasy team. LIDS has recently released a custom headwear service that allows you to create a customized hat with a fantasy team name while also aligning with your fantasy fan’s personal style. Choose the color, font, and style to give your friend a one-of-a-kind hat that will make sure their head is always in the game.

For your someone special

As I mentioned, last year I promoted Matthew Berry’s new Fantasy Life t-shirt line. Since that launch, Berry has evolved his brand into specialty gifts, hats, and even boxes! It’s hard to choose what your fantasy football fan might like, so let the experts pick for you. Matthew Berry created a FantasyLife box full of fantasy goodies, selected by Berry, and delivered right to your loved one’s doorstep. If you’re looking to get the fantasy football fan in your life more than a stocking stuffer, the FantasyLife box is for you.
