Football versus soccer gifts
Alright, before we move on to the gifts, I just want to clear something out.
The term football can sometimes get a bit confusing in English. The Americans use football to refer to American football, whereas in England it refers to soccer. Since I’ve always used the American English spelling on my website, I will stick to the term soccer from now on.
Soccer gifts for large budgets
#1 Tickets to a soccer match
One of the best gifts for soccer fans is of course a ticket to a soccer match! And by that, I don’t mean a match at your local soccer club, but a professional match in a stadium.
If you know which club the recipient supports, try to find tickets for one of their matches. Otherwise, a ticket for a match of the recipient’s national team is also a great idea. At Live Football Tickets you can find tickets for all sorts of soccer matches.
#2 Clubs of Europe poster
Soccer is a big thing in Europe, and I guess that’s why you will find many great soccer clubs in Europe. So if you are looking for soccer gifts for someone who is a big fan of European soccer, this poster with over 1000 famous soccer clubs in Europe is the gift you need.
#3 Practical soccer backpack
A soccer ball is quite large and impractical to carry around. But this backpack by Athletica is specifically designed to fit a soccer ball. And at the bottom, there is an extra compartment to carry shoes. And that combination is what makes this one of the great gifts for soccer players.
#4 Club jersey
If you know which club the recipient supports, then a jersey of that team is one of the best gifts for soccer fans.
For example, this jersey by F.C. Barcelona.
However, if you are not sure which club the recipient supports, gifting a club jersey can be a bit tricky. Some soccer fans can get quite fanatical when it comes to supporting their team and disliking their rivals. So if you are not sure about it, I would suggest buying the next gift on this list.
#5 National team jerseys
Compared to the previous gift, soccer jerseys of national teams are safer gifts for soccer fans. Because, generally speaking, you know which country someone supports. Whereas with clubs, it can be a bit of a gamble.
So if you are looking for soccer gifts for American men, this jersey of the USA national team is the gift you need. For the women’s jersey or other nationalities, check out Nike or have a look at Amazon.
#6 Soccer shirt beer cap collector
Are you looking for funny and random gifts for soccer fans?
And do they happen to love beer?
Then this is the gift you need.

And besides that, it’s also a beautiful gadget.
#9 Soccer ball
Alright, a soccer ball may not be one of the most unique gifts for soccer fans and players. But it’s actually the most practical. Because how else are they going to play soccer or practice at home?
#10 Portable stadium seat
This is one of the best gifts for soccer fans and soccer moms: a pop-up chair. They can take their chair to the stadium and sit comfortably and actually enjoy watching the game.
#11 LEGO soccer stadium model
