25 Unique gifts for cricket lovers that they will love with four photos of typical cricket-inspired gifts

Cricket gifts for large budgets

#1 Tickets to a cricket game

Let’s start this list with the very best gift for a cricket lover, which is a ticket to a live cricket match, of course!

Head over to Viagogo and find a match you can take the recipient to.

It’s the ultimate gift for cricket fans because it’s an experience they’ll never forget. Watching the game on TV is one thing, but being there in person, feeling the excitement of the crowd, and smelling the freshly cut grass (or spilled beer and sweat) is a whole different ballgame.

Plus, it’s a great opportunity to bond with your cricket-loving friend or family member and make memories that will last a lifetime. (Research has actually shown that experience gifts are more desired and have a stronger impact on your relationship than physical ones).


#2 Sports sunglasses

Do you need cricket gifts for players? Then Oakley sunglasses are exactly what you need!

They offer unbeatable (yes, pun intended) protection and style on the field. Oakley is known as one of the best brands for sports sunglasses, and for good reason. With non-polarized lenses and UV protection coating, these sunglasses filter 100% of UVA, UVB, and UVC, so your loved one’s eyes will be safe and sound.

And more importantly (from a player’s perspective at least), the PRIZM Lens Technology enhances color, contrast, and detail, to make sure your cricket player still sees debt and can spot the ball easier and track its trajectory!


#3 More cricket experience gifts

A cricket experience gift, like a tour around a stadium, is another unique and exciting way to give the gift of cricket to your loved one. It’s a chance for them to peek behind the scenes, hold (a replica of) the Cricket World Cup Trophy, walk in the footsteps of their favorite players, and maybe even sneak a peek at the dressing room (if they’re lucky).

And the memories will last longer than any material possession ever could!


#4 National shirts
