Sports are one of the few things in this world that seems to bring people together. Regardless of class, creed, or otherwise, people gather to spectate, cheer, and jeer around the globe. And if there’s one thing that sports fans love nearly as much as their favorite teams, it’s memorabilia. Jerseys, balls, books, games – whatever – athletics aficionados can’t get enough of the stuff.
A lot of graduates are coming out of school with little knowledge of cuisine or the human palette as it pertains to tastes not including mac and cheese or $1 pizza (yes, it exists). A cookbook is a nice way to make sure they can get off on the right foot post-graduation, maybe eating some vegetables and enjoying the activity itself rather than relying on the same cheap eats out of habit or lack of know-how.
Hockey is a violent sport, there’s no denying that. So what do they do with all the broken sticks? As it turns out, some of them get turned into grilling tools. These three-piece sets – which include tongs, a spatula, your choice of a brush or fork, and an optional bottle opener – feature handles made from real hockey sticks that were actually used on the ice.
Whether he's tuning into an audiobook on the subway or lifting weights at the gym, there's nothing more annoying than a dangling cord getting caught and tangled on everything. Enter the Apple AirPods. Sure, the price may seem a little steep, but when you factor in sound quality, durability, functionality, and ease of use, these babies are worth every penny. Not only will the AirPods immediately connect to his Apple devices when removed from their charging case, but audio will automatically play when the buds are placed in his ears and pause when he takes them out.
The functionality of a sneaker, but with the comfort of a slipper? Say no more. Allbirds’ best-selling sneaker is cozy enough to go sock-free, and surprisingly, all-weather-proof! On the inside, you have an uber-comfy insole that forms to your foot, and a lightweight sole that is completely machine washable. If that isn’t enticing enough, each sneaker is made of recyclable and renewable eucalyptus tree byproduct, making it environment-approved.

Modern tennis is thoroughly weaponized and only becoming more so. With the constant advances in racket technology, it is only a matter of time before the sport evolves to the point where every served ball vaporizes on impact the moment it is struck, which will require adjustments in the rules. You know what was really fun? Back when men were men, and rackets were wood, and cunning and finesse were as important as brute force. That was good enough for Rod Laver and Arthur Ashe and John McEnroe, and it's good enough for you. Check it out!
At first glance, $150 seems like a hefty price tag for a mug. But this mug is far more advanced than your run-of-the-mill travel mug. After downloading the app on his smartphone, he can plug in the desired temperature of his beverage in the app, and the mug will heat (or chill) his drink to the ideal temperature and keep it that way for hours. The app will also let him set and name different presets for different types of beverage. For the folks living in a colder climate (think New York City winters or Canadian cold fronts) the temperature control will keep coffee warm — even through a long commute.
Here Fishy, Fishy! – Fish aren’t stupid. They know there’s a hook hidden beneath that lure that could yank them to their demise. But some lures are… more so beautifully enticing that the fish can’t not bite. They’d rather risk death than live without it. The Lure Making Kit lets him mold his own lures and harness the powers of plastic persuasion. less
After choosing gifts for your aunt, mom, and grandma, it’s time to focus on personalized gifts for him. Shopping for a partner might mean buying a monogrammed pint glass he can use while watching a long-awaited football game in his “man cave”. You might also think of the hard-working landscaper, who keeps your yard looking fantastic through the seasons, and exclaim, “I must buy a personalized gift for him this year.”

“Wedding registry–type things make sense,” adds Cassidy Olsen, another soon-to-be graduate of Tufts, “because a lot of us are moving into places for the first time permanently. I know nothing about glassware, so I couldn’t say what glassware, but a combo of drinking glasses and wine glasses would be good.” We here at the Strategist love the Bormioli Rocco Bodega short tumblers, which do double duty as wine glasses and drinkware.

After graduation, you enter the "real world" and the real world will include putting together furniture, Googling how to fix leaky faucets when your landlord avoids your calls, and enticing your friends to help you mount your living room TV with pizza. It's not the most strictly "fun" gift, but it will absolutely be necessary. He'll be glad he has the tools to handle whatever life throws at him confidently, and this is one gift he may not immediately buy for himself, but which you really want to have before the very second you need it. Thoughtful and useful.
Post-college is a lot of fun and a lot of excitement, but many recent graduates will find that they miss the clear goals given in their 15 or so years of schooling. The Best Self Co. Journal helps people map out their five- or 10-year plans in a tangible, easily managed way. It's a nice and low-pressure way to provide growth and direction after graduation.
The teams of the MLB have seen a lot of stylistic changes over the years, but we still feel drawn to the classic designs from years long gone.

In that spirit, here are a handful of gift ideas for the sports inclined in your life.

If your giftee is stuck in city slush, throughout the holiday season, bring the winter weather into their home with candles that exude a snowscape. Each of these three different scents is inspired by three of Washington’s national parks. Olympic smells of woodsy red cedar and oakmoss, Rainier of pine needles with a hint of citrus, and North Cascades of season-appropriate peppermint and rosemary. The thoughtful candles are hand-poured in Washington with 100% vegan soy wax and perfume-quality oils.


Speaking of wedding registries, a set of matching flatware would be nice so that they can retire (or maybe even return) the dining hall forks and knives they may have stolen over the years. Senior writer Lauren Levy fell into a rabbit hole of stylish flatware while putting together her wedding registry and “flirted with the idea of Hay’s Everyday Silverware,” which she calls “basic and standard, but also have their own distinct shape, feel, and style.”

Sweatpants are the perfect clothing item for the enjoyment of sporting events – especially in the colder months of the year. They’re warm, stretchy (to accommodate the tons and tons of food you will consume in them), and nobody will question your fashion choice whether you are at home or tailgating. These ones, from legendary brand Champion and designer Todd Snyder, are some of the best.
I received this item as a birthday gift and it is just wonderful. The person who sent it to me made mention of wanting one as well - after seeing the pictures I shared online. So, this order was a complete surprise gift. It now hangs on the wall as a genuine piece of art. Would not hesitate to order this item for other friends. Really Really Good stuff!! 2 very enthusiastic Thumbs Up!!
