7 Christmas presents for the US Sports fan in your life

From coffee machines to some of the year’s best sportswriting.

Chicago Cubs Christmas Jumper

The Cubs finally ended their World Series hoodoo this year and what better way to celebrate by wearing this awful/brilliant jumper to your Christmas party?

World Series Socks

They may be baseball socks but there’s nothing stopping you giving someone a pair of these to throw on when going out for a run in the New Year or even for togging out for a Dads v Lads St. Stephen’s Day game.

Gunslinger – Jeff Pearlman

You may know Pearlman from the brilliant ‘Boys will be Boys’ but he’s back this year with an excellent take on Brett Favre, one of the most iconic NFL quarterbacks of the past three decades.

Football Beer Mug

It might not hold as much of your beverage of choice as your standard mug but if the recipient of your gift is an NFL fan, this football shaped one is not a bad way to go.

Laundry Basketball

Is your significant other a big NBA fan but really bad at doing the laundry? Well then, this is — probably — the perfect solution for him or her. You just have to hope they’re as good at emptying it as they are as filling it.

LeBron Plush Toy

What better way to celebrate the Cavs’ NBA Championship that with this 10-inch soft and cuddly LeBron James toy?
