So you’re shopping for a sports nut—what should you buy? What if they already have an amazing baseball glove and the coolest hot pink bicycle helmet on the cul-de-sac? Well, here are some other ideas to consider for the child who lives and breathes for sports. (And you may want to throw an ice pack in their stocking).

1. A 2-in-1 hockey and soccer kit

Any kid who loves sports would enjoy this combo gift—is it a soccer or a hockey goal? It’s both! And with the soccer ball and hockey equipment that comes with it, this one is sure to entertain the most energetic athlete for a while on Christmas day.

2. Sports Illustrated book about rare sports plays

Sporty kids might be more enticed to read a book about the rarest plays ever than Moby Dick, so wrap this up for Christmas morning, and and give that child the gift of knowledge—in sports terminology.

3. Cycling and skating elbow and knee pads and helmet

Kids play hard, and we love them for it. However, it might be easier on their parents’ anxiety levels (and medical bills) if they wore some protective gear—like these fun, bright green knee and elbow pads with matching helmet.

4. American Ninja Warrior Competition Course Kit

This American Ninja Warrior competition course kit contains two hop sacks, agility rings, competition jump ropes, birch wood bear crawl posts, and a giant ball of twine. Which basically means endless backyard (or basement) entertainment for your kids to jump, swing, and climb as they train to be the next American Ninja Warrior.

5. An air hockey table

For those late Saturday nights or long winter days when they’re stuck inside, an air hockey table like this 48″ one from Franklin Sports would be a fun Christmas surprise. (Good luck wrapping it though!)

6. No-tie shoelaces

This one’s a gift for coaches and players! With these no-tie laces, coaches and refs won’t have to stop the game anymore for little Michael to tie his shoes during a basketball game. Throw these into your sports-loving kids’ stockings to make everyone’s life easier.

Tuck your little sports nut in at night on their very own personalized pillow case. Maybe this gift will make bedtime easier? (It’s not a magic pillow, but one can hope.)

15. College Game Day Bean Bag Toss
