7 Last Minute Football Gift Ideas

13.December 2021 by Calum Walker

With the festive season in full swing, we all want to be able to impress with our gifting skills.

To help you out, here's a list of gifts that are still easily accessible at the last minute.

1. A CardsPlug Gift Voucher

The Christmas deadline for our personalised football cards has passed. But a CardsPlug Gift Voucher is the perfect last minute alternative.

Our vouchers let your fan build their own card in CardsPlug's easy real life football card builder. Giving them complete control over their gift!

We'll then design their card and ship it straight to them. Meaning they'll still get an amazing football gift from you - but you won't need to worry about it arriving on time.



2. A Replica Football Shirt

There are few better football gifts than the shirt of your fan's favourite club. For big clubs, their replica shirts can be easily found on the high street. While for local clubs, all you need to do is pop to the club shop.

Whoever you support, a shirt is the ideal last minute gift for a football lover.

3. Football Scarf

In a similar vein to a football shirt with less of a price tag, a scarf is a great way for football fans to show off their colours.

Scarves aren't as easily accessible in shops (unless its for a local team). However, most club websites have short delivery times. Meaning you may still have time to order one before the 25th. As always, be sure to check the Christmas delivery deadlines.

4. Match Tickets

Every football fan would agree that the best way to support your team is to be at a game in the flesh. From the atmosphere with a win or a loss and that feeling when the ball hits the back of the net is indescribable.

Depending on the club, match tickets can be bought at a moment's notice nowadays since they can be instantly downloaded to your phone. The perfect last minute gift.


5. A Football Calendar For 2022

One of my favourite Christmas gifts every year is my club's calendar for the new year. It's always fun to see which of your favourite players will be hanging on your wall each new month.

Most clubs calendars can be found in high street souvenir shops so are brilliant for the last minute. A simple gift yes, but very effective for a football fan.

6. A Football Print

Most football clubs sell prints of iconic moments or players, these can be purchased in club shops or online. A tidy gift to decorate your walls and to represent your club in the comfort of your own home.

Fans will appreciate a print seeing as its more or less a football poster with a touch of class.

7. A Stadium Tour

Stadium tours are a great way to learn the history of your club as well as having some fun while seeing things you wouldn’t see at a game. From getting to see various trophies to walking up the tunnel like a member of the squad.

Yes, a tour is great fun for any football fan. Like match day tickets, your stadium tour tickets will be made available immediately. Meaning you’ll have something to give your football fan on Christmas Day.



There we have it. Hopefully now you can find the perfect last minute gift for those football fans close to you.

From all of us here at CardsPlug, we hope you have a wonderful holiday season and a happy new year!
