What better way to launch our Lifestyle section than with a last-minute Gift Guide for the sports fans on your list?! Hit the ‘Expedited Shipping’ button and purchase some of these presents, and your giftees never have to know you waited until the bottom of the 9th to start shopping…
For the Star Wars-loving sports fan in your life, these precious definitely-not-Baby-Yoda stickers designed by the uber-talented @drawawalk are the most adorable stocking stuffer. I’ll be plastering them all over my laptop.
Alex Woo’s minimalist MLB charms are so great for fans of any team. I, of course, love the gold Red Sox disc! The best part? They come in a variety of eco-friendly metals at different price points, so they’ll fit most budgets. They also offer complimentary next-day air shipping on orders over $200, so your baubles are sure to arrive in time for the holidays.
Need a hostess gift for a holiday party? These ballpark glasses (set of 2) from Uncommon Goods are so unique. A guaranteed conversation-starter for even the most boring shindig. Need something bigger? They come in pint-size, too.
If, like me, you hate leaving the house when it’s below 50 degrees, these enormous, soft reversible hoodies from SFI are for you. They also make sherpa slippers for a variety of teams, which are as fluffy as the name suggests.
S. Preston of S. Preston Art + Designs, or @pootpoot as he’s known on Twitter, is the man behind the stunning Minimalist Ballpark art and Ballpark Disney Princesses. But he also does NHL, NFL, and Mascot pieces, to name a few of the many options you can purchase in print, canvas, mugs, and beyond.
I’m a bit biased, but my friend Ryan Spaeder wrote an awesome book, Incredible Baseball Stats, and it’s fully of weird and wonderful baseball tidbits.
And of course, we can’t forget our own merch! Girl At The Game fan apparel is unisex, size-inclusive, and color-customizable to your favorite team colors. My personal favorite: the Dead Ball Era crewneck.
Wishing you a joyful holidays and a happy new year!
