Finding a great gift for dad that he will actually use and appreciate can be difficult. Sporting Nation has come up with the perfect solution for sports-loving dads who don't want any more socks or ties.
Our range of hand-designed items has been created to inspire memories of yesteryear and the flood of emotions that come with it. So, if you have a hubby/dad who sat iron-faced through Titanic but cried like a baby when his team lost the grannie, then we have the perfect gift ideas for him.
Everything in our range has been designed with the sports-mad lad in mind, using vintage images from his young days on the sporting track. They are perfect for family members who want the old man to know he is loved and appreciated, giving him a practical item that he can treasure because it will always make him remember the glory days of sport.
Sporting soaps and gift ideas that will take him back "to the good old days."
Our Cricketers, Golfers and Footballers' soap is a great tongue-in-cheek addition to any gift pack, promising to not "nourish, caress or invigorate" anyone in the team — a real blood and thunder man's selection for shower time.
No cricket lover would be fit to take to the pitch without their box, and our Cricketers Gift Box means you can gift him the classic soap along with our batting line-up mini wash bags and enamel cups - perfect for billy tea on those road trips to the sticks (or coffee while telling tall stories around the sheds).
Plus we have a wide range of other cricket-related products including tea towels and laundry hampers so he can reminisce while he helps out with housework as well.
Greetings cards designed to trigger nostalgia
Give him a card that is going to take him back to the glory days.
So, whether you want to feature a worn out old footy like they used to kick back in the day or classic cricket bats and balls from the days when the Windies gave us the business, our range of cards are sure to bring out all the old sporting stories from yesteryear.
Does the dad in your household whinge about footy being too soft these days?
Then the Footballers Gift Box is the perfect gift for him. Featuring the Footballers Soap, enamel cup, and the classic footy boot emblazoned on a stylish mini wash bag, this is the ideal football gift for dad to take him back to the days of collared guernseys and backing up from ressies to sit on the bench for the firsts.
Is he using the same golf clubs he used “back in the day?”
We have him covered too. Our range includes tea towels, laundry hampers, tote bags and more with the classic old leather golf carts and signature clubs that will have him regaling the family with the time he "almost" drained a hole in one and the professional career he could have had.
Whether he has loved basketball since the days of short shorts and warehouses instead of arenas, or has been a tennis fan since the days of wooden racquets and traditional white uniforms, our gifts will deliver an elegant product and a heavy drink of nostalgia at the same time.
