What do you get the tough, unforgiving, die hard Philadelphia Flyers fan this holiday season? You get them these ten items that will safeguard their fandom through even the darkest of Flyers seasons.
The simplest thing to get any sports fan is tickets to see their favorite team. Whether the Flyers are playing a hated rival or a Western Conference team that only comes in once a year, you are guaranteed a night of fun down in South Philadelphia.
2) Team Apparel
The Flyers have some of the best gear available. Their jerseys are great and their hoodies might be even better. The designers do a great job at mixing and matching the orange, black, and white the team wears. You could get new apparel for someone every year and never run out of good things to get them.
3) Flyer’s Skate Zone Practice
Located in Voorhees, New Jersey and filled with many different events, the Flyer’s Skate Zone can be a day trip to take your favorite Flyer fan on. Practices are open to the public throughout the season, the perfect opportunity to see your favorite players up close. This is also one of the best places to get a player’s autograph post-practice.
A gift exclusive for adults, the Flyers flask is a great and subtle way to yank out your favorite adult beverage while honoring your favorite hockey team. You will never be able to bring this to an actual game, but no worries. Your local BYOB restaurant or bar should welcome it on game night.
5) Flyers Wives Fight for Lives Carnival
The annual carnival held by the Flyers Wives and players is a terrific chance to meet players, get autographs, and give back to charity. The carnival has lots of games and contests throughout the day. Fans of all ages can enjoy being surrounded by the Flyers culture and history.
6) Car Fin
Let fellow drivers know you bleed orange and black with this gift. The Flyers car fin adds a flashy touch to your motor vehicle. In an area like Philadelphia where Pittsburgh Penguins, New Jersey Devils, and New York Rangers fans are not far away, it can be rewarding to let the guy trying to cut you off from the shoulder know you are a Broad Street Bully and to be more careful.
7) Bed Sheets
When game time is over and your eyes need a rest relax on these beautifully designed Flyers bed sheets. Everybody could use new bed sheets. Cuddling under these and watching a late night Flyers game is a great way to spend a winter evening.
8) A Road Trip to see the Adirondack Phantoms
Sometimes getting away from the big city and heading somewhere a little quieter can be the best gift of all. Ever since the AHL affiliate for the Flyers moved from across the street to upstate New York, Flyers fans have had a new travel destination. The Phantoms play true Flyers hockey and many will be on the big league squad soon enough. Spend the day exploring nature in the Adirondack Mountains and the night cheering on the farm team.
9) Tree Face Ornament
A little original and a lot more frightening, the Flyers tree face ornament would be a nice addition to your lawn. More unique than a flag hanging above your stoop, this gift could be useful for a nature fan or simply someone with a strange sense of humor.
10) Dog Shirt
When you get someone a gift it does not always have to be directly for them. For the dog obsessed fan, get them a shirt they can put on their pooch. This shirt represents something the owner loves and will be placed on someone they love. It is also a great thing to annoy neighbors way say they do not understand hockey.
