A Chocolate Boot Or Ball

We can’t talk about Easter without mentioning chocolate. But if you're treating someone who really loves football, why settle for a standard egg?

Lots of the top chocolate brands offer a football themed option. So if you head to your local supermarket, you should be able to pick up an "egg" in the shape of a football or a football boot.


A Football Book

What better way to enjoy it than with a good bit of reading? And what better way to inspire a love of reading than through football?

There are loads of brilliant football themed books out there. We even wrote a guide to the best football books for all ages here.



A Football Themed Day Out

Great football gifts aren't all about "stuff". So how about a football themed day out instead?

If there's a big club in your area, a stadium tour could be the perfect way to learn about their history and see behind the scenes at their stadium.

Most tours are reasonably priced and include unique experiences like walking down the tunnel and seeing the dressing rooms.

If you're in the UK, the National Football Museum could also be a great shout. It's home to an amazing amount of memorabilia from 150+ years of football history and it's really well priced.

Admission costs £10.50 for adults and £5.50 for children. If you're a Manchester resident, you'll even get in for free!


Mini Nets

A set of mini nets are perfect for the garden or to take with you on a day out. Which means you can play a game of football no matter where you are (to an extent).

With summer on its way, this could be the perfect gift. Especially as it will keep them outside and exercising more.

Build Something Cool!

Building a model is a satisfying and fun way to spend your time. Not to mention an activity that you and your football fanatic can enjoy together.

There are a lot of cool football-themed models on the web. With our favourites including the Lego inspired stadium kits. For us, it seems like a sure-fire way to pass the Easter Holidays and have fun while doing so.

A Football Shirt

A football strip is always a good option - and you have a few options here. On one hand, you could buy the current season's kit. This could be a good option as a lot of the kits go on sale in Spring. 

On the other hand, you could get a vintage football shirt from years gone by. These can be a bit pricey - but they're also unique and, in some cases, timeless.


A Club Scarf

A football scarf is the most traditional way to rep your team. What's more, they come in at a great price for Easter - when you might not want to spend a huge amount.

A football scarf is a gift for life. So in 10 or 20 years, your fan might still be using the scarf you bought them! What a nice thought.

A Club Mascot Toy

One for younger football fans, most clubs will do plenty of merchandise surrounding the club mascot. This goes from notebooks to phone cases to water bottles and even Lego style-kits to build your very own mascot model.

This is another option that can apply to any football club. However, in order to keep within the Easter theme, we'll suggest Peterborough FCs happy hopping mascot Peter Burrow the rabbit. What a great name.


Well there we have it, 9 Easter gift ideas for a football fan. I hope this guide has helped spark a few ideas for what to get that football fan close to you. 

From everyone here at CardsPlug, we wish you a happy Easter!
