Tables and Hoops

If your recipient is a crazed sports fanatic and doesnít just limit his fun to the outdoors, why not make it easy for him to satisfy his sports hunger with either an indoor table game or a hoop set? You can buy him a foosball table, a pool table, or even an air-hockey one. Chances are, heíll spend a lot of time at the table.

In addition, if your guy is a basketball fan, why not purchase an indoor hoop system? They come for one player or two, and can be great for stress relief, or just a little fun!

Exercise Equipment

If your gift recipient is a sports fanatic, chances are that he does whatever is necessary to keep in shape. Knowing that, why not give him a rowing machine, weight set or treadmill? Heíll be thrilled to be able to exercise in his own home without having to go the gym!


If you live near the ocean and your sport fanatic is a surfer, why not have a custom board made for him? You can choose the paint, design and of course, length and shape of the board to fit his needs.

Sports Fans

Most sports fanatics have a team, and they live and die by that team. A perfect inexpensive gift idea for a fan is memorabilia from their favorite team. It could be a baseball hat, tee-shirt, customized mouse pad, or even a sweat suit embroidered with their teamís logo. Use you imagination, and see how you can tie in their team with a regular article of clothing.

Golf Items

You can buy golf balls, golf tees, club covers (you can even personalize these), or a Sunday golf bag. In addition, you can find PGA sports memorabilia for great prices if you shop around!

Recovery Tools

Chances are that if you know a sports fanatic, youíve heard your fair share of moans and groans as a result of playing too hard and long. A perfect sports gift idea for someone who has a tendency to over-do it is a handheld massager. They come in different forms, shapes and sizes, but they will all accomplish one thing: to help relieve some of the muscle tension that can occur from playing hard.

Isnít it great to know that you can find a great sports gift to fit your price range?
