His birthday is approaching and it seems impossible to buy him anything new and fresh. He doesn't appreciate the clothes you bought him last year and you know he'll finish off that expensive bottle of wine without even thinking about how much it cost.
This year focus on what he really likes. Every week he's either at a football match or watching the TV for news and highlights of the weekends games. Maybe he even plays or coaches for a local club. This year, focus on something that really makes him happy, get him a soccer related gift. Never mind the high tech gadgets, costly gizmo's and expensive trainers. Football is the answer to the perfect gift conundrum.
For a start, the way to a man's heart is through his stomach so bake him a cake in the shape of a football or with his favourite teams crest on it. He'll love that and it will be a great start to his party. If he's a music lover you can buy CD's with football songs on, many are team specific and are available from the teams' online store.
If you are going to buy clothes there are some very tasteful garments with football club insignia on. There are very subtle polo shirts and T shirts that have small club logos on the chest, Alternatively you can go the whole hog and get him a replica shirt. He'll love to wear this to the match and if he's already got one you could buy him an away kit.
Perhaps clothing accessories would be a good idea. There are plenty of football scarves and gloves on sale which are great quality and look good. Then there are other football related gifts like player figurines, singing fan toys, board games, card games, posters, frames artwork, leather bags, mouse mats, flags, tea mugs, signed photos of players, garden gnomes, stationery, soft furnishings, glasses, DVD's of great goals, watches, books, jewellery and party accessories.
