The 2013-14 NHL season has begun! Something else is on the horizon, as well: the holidays! There is no better time than now to start thinking about that perfect gift for the Philadelphia Flyers fan in your life. Here are ten ideas to get you started.
Gifts Under $25
Spinner Keychain ($9.95) – This might just be the best stocking stuffer ever! Who doesn’t love a keychain? It sports the Flyers name, the logo, and the unmistakable team colors on both sides. Plus, it doesn’t break the bank. Score!
Mesh Drawstring Backpack, Black ($14.95) – Team Logo? Check. Team Name? Check. All the items a fanatic needs when he/she heads to a game? Well, that’s up to them! This lightweight backpack is a functional gift option. The best part is that it can be used for other fun adventures, all while showing Flyers pride!
Pencil Holder, Black ($24.95) – Everyone needs a pencil holder, whether it’s for the home or the office. This one is snazzy with a pewter logo; it pays homage to the Flyers in a subtle (yet effective) way!
Silicone iPhone 5 Cover, Orange ($24.95) – Your fan has the newest technology, so why not provide him/her with some Flyers-inspired protection? Designed to be used with the iPhone 5, this silicone cover is a great way to show team spirit. It provides access to the necessary ports and controls, too.
Gifts for $25-$50
3-Piece Ultimate Car Magnet Kit ($27.95) – Who needs decals when there are magnets on hand? This kit comes with two small and one large vinyl Flyers logo magnets which are perfect for vehicles (and any other metal surface). No need to worry about sticky messes when your fan wants to remove the logo for any reason.
2-Pack Rocks Glass Set ($31.95) – This is a great idea for that Flyers couple that enjoys a little something on the rocks now and again. Sure, they may have glasses for that purpose already…but do they have 14 oz. drinkware with fine pewter Flyers medallions on the front? Cheers to that!
ProToast Elite Toaster ($39.95) – Let’s get straight to the point: it toasts the Flyers logo right onto the bread! No joke! It has all the other great features, too (i.e. variable toasting control, cool touch exterior, etc.), but who cares about that when you can have Flyers branded bread? A true fanatic would love a gift like this!
Travel Mug & Ceramic Mug Set ($39.99) – Whether a fan is having coffee at home or on the go, this set provides Flyers spirit first thing in the morning! The travel mug is stainless steel and holds 16 ounces, while the ceramic mug holds 15 ounces. Both mugs boast hand-crafted metal team logos! It’s a win-win!
Gifts for $50-$100
2013 Medium Duffle Bag, Orange ($54.95) – Here’s why I like it: it’s bright and fanatics won’t have any trouble finding it in the overhead compartment! Of course, it works just as well for ground travel, too! Measuring 21″ x 12″ x 12″, this duffle has all the compartments a Flyers fan needs (including a mesh shoe compartment) while sporting the team logo!
Game-Used Hockey Stick Bottle Opener ($85.95) – This isn’t your ordinary bottle opener. Made from a genuine game-used hockey stick, it comes with a certificate of authenticity (hence, the hefty price tag). Any Flyers fan, through and through, would be tickled to have one of these at the ready!
