Christmas Gift Ideas for Your Favorite Football Fan Dec 2007
With the Christmas season quickly approaching, the time has come to start agonizing over what gifts to give. Who hasn't spent hours at the mall or the toy store, staring at shelves and shelves of action figures, Barbie dolls and video games, and wondered how to choose the perfect child's gift, be it a son, daughter, niece, nephew or grandchild?
It's easy to buy into the idea that we must get the most technologically advanced gifts in order to win a child's love, but that's not necessarily the case. You want to pick something that they'll enjoy, that shows you know what they like, not that you're just assuming they're like "every other boy/girl their age." If the child you're shopping for happens to be a football fanatic, then something like NFL or college football bedding would be the perfect gift.
This isn't like getting them a toy they'll enjoy for five minutes and then toss, or an expensive video game system that they'll play with only a few months till a new one comes out. NFL and college football bedding is something that they'll see every day and that they'll be able to enjoy for years to come. When everybody else is giving them toys, your gift will stand out from the pack.
Choosing what to get
Bedding is a gift idea that not many people will consider, but as long as you pick the right team, NFL or college football bedding can be a unique gift that's perfect for a budding football fan. Bedding, comforters especially, is functional, lasts a long time, and has a lot of visual impact in a room. If you're giving a gift to a niece or nephew, or other child that you don't live with, check with their parents first to make sure a bedding gift would work in their room.
If they've already got NFL or college football bedding, it's easy to find matching accents to help them display their team spirit. A valance or drapes for the windows in their room is one such idea, or perhaps a pillow or blanket that would not only decorate their bed, but also provide them with warmth and a soft place to sit when they go to football games. You could also get a team logo rug for their floor, although you'll have to get measurements from parents to make sure you don't get one that's too big.
College football wallpaper or borders is another idea, though a dicey one if you're not buying for your own kids. You'd certainly have to get parental permission before you gave it, and you'd also need to offer a few hours (or even a weekend) of your own time to help them put it up. No parent wants to get stuck with extra work because of your present.
Think outside the box this holiday season
Don't be yet another relative who gets a Christmas gift they think kids will like, instead of finding out what they definitely like. Give them something that they're passionate about, and you'll not only be giving a cool gift, but a cool gift that's full of sentimental value because you're the relative who got them the awesome Dallas Cowboys comforter instead of the Encyclopedia Britannica CDs.
Come Christmas, NFL or college football bedding and accessories could put a smile on the face of your favorite football fan.
