Football apparel always has been an easy, go-to gift during the holidays. I grew up in Nashville and when the Titans officially landed there in 1999, an Eddie George jersey was waiting under my tree. Steelers gear is the perfect fit for my Pittsburgh-raised father-in-law and Packers items are good for our Cheesehead neighbors. I’m sure you can relate.
So for this holiday season, I set out to create a one-stop shop for all your gift-giving needs. There’s something for everyone below—from dads with traditional taste to hipsters looking to push boundaries to ladies looking to stand out in the stands. And if you happen to be here on Black Friday or Cyber Monday, many of the brands listed are offering steep discounts on the merchandise. So take advantage.
A quick word before we get to the apparel. When doing the research, I concentrated my efforts on finding items available for every team, or at least the majority of them. So if you like a Bengals shirt below but happen to be a Dolphins fan, you’re still in luck. Just click the bold red link and it will take you to a page that lists every team product in that style. Any questions, feel free to send me a note. Happy to help. It’s the season of giving, after all.
It might not be T-shirt time outside—unless you live in, say, sunny southern California like the smug writer of this blurb—but don’t let that stop you from filling stockings with any of these tees. More team-by-team ideas here and don’t forget about our afro’ed friend either.
Subtle and simple, or loud and proud—there’s something here for whatever your style. Those quarter-zips are reversible, and the 8-bit helmet will be a big hit for anyone who grew up before pixels exploded into more realistic graphics.
A quick apology for the model above: Love the jacket, but pretty sure that pose wouldn’t fly in Jersey. But the real stars here are the vests; I’d consider becoming a Broncos fan just for that garment.
