1. NFL 100: A Century of Pro Football
The Super Bowl concludes the NFL season, but you can extend it another week (or two) by placing this commemorative hardcover on the coffee table after the big game. NFL 100 is a football memorabilia book that celebrates a century of the National Football League’s greatest moments in 286 pages. Insightful player profiles, historical stats from every decade, and stunning portrait photography, the book has more than enough content to hold over the big guy until training camp.
2. YETI Silo 6 Gallon Water Cooler
Whether you are helping to hydrate a team of football players, a team of tailgaters or simply want to limit your trips to the kitchen during game day, the YETI Silo 6 Gallon Water Cooler can handle it all and more. The tough and durable cooler can hold up to six gallons of liquid at once and has an easy to use and fast pour spigot to keep drinks flowing and the line moving. As with all Yeti products, the Silo can keep liquids cool for hours on end, meaning no need to worry about drinking warm water even if the game goes into overtime.
3. NFL Yoga Mat Collection
We know that game day can be stressful which is why we like this NFL branded yoga mat that lets you rep your team while also taking some deep breaths and holding child’s pose. Show off your love for all things football while getting in a sweat session and some self-care on this yoga mat that is 6mm thick and made from PVC for a cushioned and supportive base. Ward off injuries for your own game day with a mat that is the perfect partner for a pre-practice stretch.
4. The Football Fanbook
Buying a gift for a young football fan? Try The Football Fanbook. It features all the football lingo, trivia, stats, and skills needed to be an expert on the game. It’s also fun for football fans to look at together and only costs $15 for the digital version.
5. Sportula NFL Stainless Steel Coasters
These stainless steel NFL coasters make a great gift because they’re actually a handsome piece of decor, which can’t be said for most sports-themed art. They’re made with a cork backing and premium laser-cut stainless steel, giving them a high-end look that can upgrade any man cave or bar area. To find the coasters for your team (plus tons of other great team-specific merchandise), head to the YouTheFan Amazon store.
6 . Tipsy Tubes Hidden Flask (3-Pack)
Having a drink (or a few) at the football game is great. Emptying your bank account is not. Thankfully there are other solutions for the creative drinker, like these flasks disguised as sunscreen tubes. It’s a fun gift that your football friend (and his bank account) will thank you for.
7. Coleman NFL Soft-Sided Cooler Bag
Cold drinks are an absolute necessity at any tailgate, football watch party or park scrimmage. This Coleman cooler bag lets you transport beers, sodas and cold water bottles. It’s a fun upgrade to the boring travel cooler and comes with your team logo and color scheme. It features a carrying strap and a compact design for easy transportation but packs a surprising 16 cans and ice to keep the party going.
8. Seibertron Ultra-Stick Football Gloves
If your giftee actually plays football, they’ll appreciate a nice pair of gloves to up their game. We recommend these best-selling gloves from Seibertron. They feature an ultra-stick material on the palms and fingers for snatching the ball, plus breathable fabric on the back to keep your hands from sweating too much. Reviewers say the gloves are comfortable and well-built — especially considering their incredibly low price tag.
9. Aminco NFL Logo Cufflinks
Another easy gift for football fans is this set of officially licensed NFL cufflinks. They have a classic look with the team logo of choice in the middle, allowing die-hard fans to rep their favorite team even when they’re all dressed up.
10. Wilson Composite Football
This one is a no-brainer. Any football fan would be happy to unwrap a fresh pigskin this holiday. For the best gifts for football fans they can actually play ball with, we recommend Wilson’s composite football. It’s great for everything from serious practice to backyard catch with your kids.
11. NFL Team Pride Light
Every football family wants to have the most spirited house on the block during the big game. This clever NFL pride light lets your giftee really fly their team’s colors by projecting the team logo all over their house. The projector is very handy because you don’t need to unpack, set up and store a bunch of banners and decorations. Just set it up on the day of the game using the tripod and lawn stake.
12. Boelter Brands NFL Pint Glass Set
When you’re watching the game at home or at a friend’s house, chances are you have a glass in your hand. That’s why a dedicated NFL glass is a great way to rep your team. This set from Boelter includes two 16 ounce glasses with your team’s logo etched right on the front. It’s the best way to cheers your mates and wish for a win.

14. The Northwest Company NFL Robe

The robe is an especially good idea for husbands, boyfriends or dads that desperately need a loungewear upgrade (because that stained hoodie needs to go).
15. Sport Squad Endzone Challenge
Get ready for barbeques, tailgates and backyard parties with this endzone challenge game. The stand-up game allows you to test your throwing arm’s accuracy with seven holes. Along with the frame and net, the game comes with a carrying case, four foam footballs and four frisbees to practice with. This is perfect for tailgates or backyard fun with the kids.
16. Madden NFL 20
If your football fan giftee is also a gamer, then the newest edition of Madden NFL is a no-brainer as a gift idea. The latest and greatest installment of the popular video game features an incredible new game engine for smooth, addictive gameplay and crisp graphics.
17. XL Fleece Stadium Blanket
The most dedicated football fans won’t think twice about heading to their team’s stadium for a game, even if the temperatures outside plunge far below zero. In the rain, sleet and snow, they’ll be there cheering on their team. That’s why a warm and cozy stadium blanket is one of the best gifts for football fans. This XL fleece stadium blanket is big enough to wrap around yourself when it gets chilly. The extra plush fleece will keep you nice and toasty, while the wind and rainproof exterior will keep you dry.

19. NFL Game Used Uniform Wallet
Wearing a jersey to show your team pride is great when hanging out with friends or watching Sunday night football, but it’s not really appropriate for the office. For the football fan who wants to show their allegiance in a more tasteful and understated way, check out the NFL Game Used Uniform Wallet. Each wallet is made with a piece of a jersey that has been authenticated as having been worn during an NFL game. The hand-cut jersey pieces show at least two team colors and have wear and tear for added authenticity. The team name is debossed on the front of the wallet and contrast stitching finishes off the high-end gift. A hologram sticker also comes with the wallet and customers can look up details on when the jersey was last worn.
20. Lakemont Regular Fit NFL Quarter-Zip Sweater
Much like the game shirt wallet, the Lakemont Regular Fit NFL Quarter-Zip Sweater Provides an apparel alternative to jerseys that still show off team pride while also being appropriate in a business casual setting. The lightweight, mock neck sweater has a quarter zip and double-layered ribbing for added warmth on cooler game days. Fans can represent their favorite team with a tastefully sized logo over the left chest. And if they really want to, they can keep their jersey on underneath the sweater.
21. New York Times Custom Football Book
For the football fan who loves trivia and prides themselves on knowing every piece of their team’s history, gift them the New York Times Custom Football Book.

Just don’t even think about putting a drink on it without a coaster underneath.
24. Moca Stylish Snacks Storage Box
Many football fans like to spend Sundays with friends and family enjoying the game, but the pandemic has made that impossible.
