Best Gifts for the Baseball Fan

Do you have a baseball lover on your holiday gift list? Don’t sweat it – these recipients aren’t that hard to shop for! Maybe they won’t appreciate a holiday sweater or necktie as much as the next person, but there are some items they will jump for joy over.

We have great suggestions for baseball lovers below, but don’t be afraid to do some of your own investigating as well. Ask your friend who their favorite player or team is. After all, you don’t want to offend them by getting a gift with the wrong team.

Here are a few of our favorite picks for holiday gifts for baseball fans.

Baseball Jerseys

Jerseys are a great investment for baseball lovers because they have value and represent a favorite team. Jerseys come in all different varieties; some have names on the back, some are signed by the player and others are blank. You can also buy a jersey that is personalized for the recipient. Just remember that players do move around a lot in baseball, so it’s easy for jerseys to become obsolete in a year or two.

Baseball Tickets

Since it’s off-season, now is a good time to purchase a package deal for your recipient’s favorite team. There are a number of package deals that include 10 or 20 tickets, and maybe you can even share in the fun by attending a few of the games! Season tickets are another option, although these tickets can cost quite a bit of money. Still, it’s a good bargain for the money, especially if you purchase the tickets for yourself and give them away to some of your recipients for the games you can’t attend.

Licensed Gear

There are plenty of online websites that sell licensed gear, and you can easily sort through the products that feature your recipient’s favorite team. You’ll be amazed at what you can find: clothes, hats, small appliances, bottle openers, grilling sets, coasters and cufflinks, to name a few.

Wall Hangings

Photographs, autographs and personalized clubhouse prints are just a few of the options out there. These wall hangings are great for “man caves,” and they show off the person’s pride and support for their favorite players and teams. If you’re going to make a small investment, make sure you do your research. For instance, authenticated items will come with the MLB seal of certified authenticity.
