It can be hard to buy gifts for the sports fanatic on your list.
How do you get them something they want? Getting them tickets to the next Maple Leafs game can be impractical, and they already have all the gym memberships they need.
Luckily, we’ve partnered with Sport Chek to bring you some exciting gift ideas for every sports fan on your list. From memorable jerseys to classic sports equipment and technologically enhanced fitness help, it’s the perfect gift for the season.
The only issue? You’ll want to keep them all for yourself.
The World Junior Hockey Championship starts on Boxing Day, and what better way to celebrate it than with a 2016 Team Canada jersey underneath the Christmas tree? The jersey features the emblem for Canada’s 150th Confederation anniversary on the shoulder, and has maple leaf silhouettes highlighted on the black fabric.
For a hockey player, you can’t find a better gift than improving their skating speed. The Bauer Supreme S170 hockey skate forms around the ankle and heel for an anatomically correct fit. This combined with the flex technology in the skate’s material allows the skater to get in longer strides, making their skating more powerful and efficient.
Everyone wants to play like the big leagues, and the CCM RIBCOR Trigger ASY Grip Senior hockey stick can help make that happen. This hockey stick was designed using feedback from NHL players. It offers an extremely quick release. It also has reduced weight and better puck feel in the blade.
It might be tempting to skip the exercise during the cold winter months, but getting a Fitbit Charge 2 for Christmas could revitalize the activity. It monitors your fitness level by automatically recognizing your exercise and providing the Fitbit app with stats for your heart rate, steps, and calories. It also tracks your sleep quality and lets you wake up to a silent alarm, keeping you healthy in all areas of your life.
The Wilson X Connected basketball uses Make/Miss Technology to track your shots, and sends statistics to an app on your phone. It tallies up your shooting percentages and the distance from the hoop, so you’ll know what kind of practice will best improve your game.
These gifts are perfect for the sports lover on your list – and you can get them all at Sport Chek. Purchase them online from the comfort of your desk, or be old fashioned and head to your local store.
