Are you looking for a unique gift you can create for your dad this Christmas? For a father that is a football fan, a Super Bowl party gift basket may just be the winning ticket. If your dad would much prefer to see a tie-breaker over another tie, then a football fan themed gift basket is a great game plan.
411 on Super Bowl XLV:
Super Bowl 2011 will be held Sunday, February 6th and is being played at the Dallas Cowboys stadium in Arlington, Texas.
So Super Bowl Sunday, the next biggest holiday for football fanatics, is just a few short weeks after Christmas. Dad won’t have to wait long to play armchair quarterback and enjoy his Christmas gift.
Basket, Bucket, Cooler or Grooler?
Of course for dads the gift basket doesn’t necessarily have to be in a basket. From a paint pail to a five-gallon bucket, Dad will put the container to good use too. Toolboxes and tackle boxes are fun too. After all, Dad will need some new hobbies after the football season ends with the Super Bowl.
A gift basket in a cooler would be perfect for tailgate parties and maybe just for Super Bowl Sunday Dad could put it by his armchair and never have to get up during the game. He wouldn’t have to miss a moment of football action or Super Bowl 45 commercials. Just in case you’ve ever wondered, according to ABlog4Guys.com, the “Grooler,” combination grill and cooler in the Bud Light commercials is a real product and sells for $125.00.
What should go into a Super Bowl Party gift basket for Dads for Christmas? A gift basket should have at least five items related to the football theme. Depending on what Super Bowl party items you choose, you could create a football fan gift basket for just about any price range from $15.00 to $100.00.
Super Bowl party snacks:
Be sure to add at least one of these Super Bowl snacks to your gift basket. Consider chips and salsa, gourmet popcorn, chocolate or yogurt covered pretzels, peanuts or mini-candy bars.
Super Bowl party foods:
From chili seasoning to hot wing sauce, add some of the ingredients your father will want to make his favorite Super Bowl Sunday foods. A gift card for a place your Dad can get pizzas or chicken wings may be appreciated if he’s more comfortable with drive throughs than sauces and stews.
Super Bowl party drink accessories:
If you want to include a nice gift for men in your Super Bowl party gift basket, Tervis Tumblers (complete review here) are insulated drinking glasses that keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold and they never leave a condensation ring on your table. Even better for football fans, you can order them with team logos from the NFL or collegiate teams.
Depending on Dad’s party beverage preferences you could include other items like Bloody Mary mix, a cool bottle opener, a set of coasters or even just some fun cocktail napkins.
Of course dad may appreciate t-shirts or hats that celebrate his favorite football team, even if his favorite team isn’t in Super Bowl XLV.
Other fun Super Bowl party gifts could be tissues in case his favorite team loses or else the Super Bowl commercials are so funny he laughs until he cries. Emergency batteries for the remote control aren’t a bad idea either for Super Bowl Sunday. You can also print out some fun Super Bowl Trivia here or Super Bowl Printables here to use to decorate your football gift basket for Dad.
