5. Baylis & Harding Men’s Sport Football Wash Bag
I’ll be the first to admit that as a guy who’s always out in the field enjoying the game, deodorant isn’t always a priority. Fortunately, my wife likes to remind me about the stinky, sweaty consequences of playing ball all day by holding her nose. But not all couples are so open. So what do you do when you don’t want to tell your loving football fanatics that they reek of sweat?
Simple, get them the Baylis & Harding Men’s Sport Football Wash Bag. This handy bag is the perfect way to encourage football lovers to stay fresh and invigorated after a game.

6. Tipsy tubes
Do you know the best combination in this life for a football fan?
Well, a football game of the favourite team and a few drinks is a combination out of this world. A football fan can thank you forever for such a gift.
If you want to appreciate them in your life, this would be an excellent idea.
However, it is not an excellent idea emptying your bank account while getting a gift. For that reason, buying some empty tubes is a creative idea for a drink for the football fan. They will enjoy the drink while watching the game, and on the other hand, your bank account will thank you for not hurting it a lot.
7. Roadie cooler
Tailgating is synonymous with football games. Football lovers also enjoy tailgating, especially after their team has smashed the other.
If you are thinking of the best gift that would make a football fan feel appreciated, think no more. A roadie cooler will make a perfect gift.
With the roadie cooler, the football fan can carry a few sodas, no it can’t be soda, a few drinks for a tailgate. The cooler can carry up to 14 cans, and it is ideal for garden parties.
The cooler may not be the cheapest gift option. However, you wouldn’t mind taking it for that football fan that you care about a lot.
8. Customised cufflinks
If you ask any die-hard football fan, they will do anything as long as they are representing their team.
When they go to work, they want everybody to know which team they support and how well it performs. They want to carry the glory everywhere, including the supermarket, church, etc.
So how would you ensure they represent their team at work?
A pair of cufflinks would make a perfect gift. You can customise the cufflinks with a logo of the team they support. That way, they can carry the glory of their football team around even when they dress up.
9. Team pride light
Have you ever visited the house of a die-hard football fan? How was the house?
Many of them are full of banners, posters and other decorations that show their love for the football team.
However, with the advancement of technology, the error of using banners and posters in the house is long gone. In its place, you can use other techniques to project your love for the team.
With this lamp, the football fan will have the most spirited house with the team logo. When you put the light on, it will fill the house with the logo of the team. It, therefore, saves the fan from filling the house with photos, posters, and banners of the team, and it will look tidier.
10. Team robe
Has your boyfriend, husband, son, or brother overused that hoodie while sleeping? Do you want to upgrade the loungewear to something classy that they can wear in the morning before heading to the shower?
If yes, it is time that you got them a classy robe. To help them represent their team even in the morning, you can have it customised with the logo of their favourite team.
The robe should be soft and comfortable.
