5 Great Christmas Gift Ideas for the Football Fan In Your Life...

Posted by Christopher Smith on

We're edging ever closer to Christmas (hooray) but the clock's ticking & you still haven't found that perfect gift for that special someone yet (boo).

Well never fear, because this year we're all about #festivefootball, so we've prepared a handy list you can use for some gift inspiration.


1. A personalised football shirt

At Football Nation we not only have a superb range of official replica shirts to choose from, but we can also personalise any shirt with either their favourite player or their own preferred name & number. 

Most of our prints are the official league versions, however if we don't have the official print in stock we can still offer you a brilliant FN Hero print in our in-house style.

Best of all, you even get a discount on the printing if you buy the shirt from us.

2. A new pair of football boots

Trust us when we say, even if they don't need a new pair of football boots, they will always be happy to get a new pair.

Anyone that's ever played the beautiful game knows just how nice it is to pull on a brand new, shiny pair for the first time & give them their first run out. 

Whether it's their first goal, first clean sheet or first assist, memories are made in boots that they'll never forget.

3. Something from the Soccer Supplement range

"What's Soccer Supplement" we hear you ask? It's something pretty scientific & ground-breaking is what it is.

If the person you care about this Christmas takes their football seriously & perhaps, plays for a local team or even above that level, then Soccer Supplement can help them take their game to the next level.

Whether it's a pre-match energy gel to boost performance, or a protein powder formulated especially for football players to help build their explosive pace, any serious player should be using the range.

In Edinburgh, Soccer Supplement is exclusively available at our Edinburgh store & is championed by pro clubs Watford & Sheffield Wednesday.

4. A new pair of goalkeeper gloves

Much like football boots, no goalkeeper is likely to be unhappy at receiving a new pair of gloves, whether they really need them or not.

At Football Nation, our range of gloves provides for all levels of goalkeepers. So whether you're buying for someone who keeps sticks in a local 5-a-side league, or someone with aspirations of going pro, you'll find something to suit.

With the best range of goalie gloves in Edinburgh, it's worth paying a visit to Football Nation this Christmas.

Remember, if you're significant other wants a pair of gloves this year, they're probably a keeper.

5. A brand new football

A new football is a fantastic stocking filler (not literally of course, there's no danger it would fit in there). 

With a huge selection of match balls & officially licensed replica balls from the Premier League, World Cup & Champion's League, you're really spoiled for choice in our Edinburgh store.

If you're buying for younger players, we've got plenty of size 3 & 4 balls available too - result!
