Last Minute Soccer Present Ideas For The Holidays

If you or your loved ones are looking for last minute present ideas for the holidays, we’ve created a list of soccer-related products that you’ll be able to order online and get delivered in lickety-split in time for the big day.

With that said, here are the ideas for last-minute soccer gifts:

1. Soccer shirts, gear and merchandise. World Soccer Shop is offering a 15% coupon off all purchases made between now and Monday, December 13. All you have to do is enter coupon code 7WSS4DAYS at checkout. They have an incredible inventory of soccer shirts for all of your favorite teams and tons of other gifts that would be perfect for the holidays.

2. We Ate All The Pies book. The book was on the shortlist of the best sports books of the year in the United Kingdom, and it’s no surprise why. Author John Nicholson (and regular EPL Talk columnist) examines football culture in his latest book, We Ate All The Pies. He explores the history of the football shirt in style and design; how and why sponsorship became the norm; the culture of food inside the ground, around the stadium and in the pubs and clubs, and how the culture of pies and the modern trend of fine dining changed the match day experience (and why prawn sandwiches are the perfect expression of the class-politics of football); why booze is so important to football; how football is used by people to vent their everyday frustrations and emotions and how this is managed by the clubs. He also describes the history of football on TV and how it changed perceptions of teams and countries (in particular, the 1970 World Cup TV revolution); the role of international football in national identity and the intricate complexities of being a Teessider, Northern and English, in that order!

3. Soccer audio books. I don’t know what I’d do if I didn’t have access to podcasts and audiobooks on my commute. I would certainly be bored or go nuts. And the wonderful thing about audiobooks is that they’re much faster to read than books especially for a slow reader such as myself. Plus, they also have soccer titles such as The History of The World Cup by Brian Glanville, My Manchester United Years by Bobby Charlton, the Rio Ferdinand autobiography, Soccernomics and the autobiography of legendary football commentator John Motson. Limited time offer! Get your first 3 months at Audible for $7.49/month. With that, you’ll get an audiobook credit each month

4. Soccer video games delivered by mail. If you love Netflix, where you can get your favorite movies delivered by mail, you’ll love Gamefly which is a similar concept whereby you can rent video games by mail. Get up to 20% off gift certificates from Gamefly. Or better yet, sign up for either a 10-day free trial of Gamefly or register for Gamefly’s $5.95 per month plan.

Bonus item:

iTunes & App Store5. The  Beatles. While not soccer-related, who doesn’t love The Beatles especially now that their entire collection has been made available on iTunes for the first time? Each album comes with iTunes LP, which features lyrics, photos, and more. Or you can get The Beatles Box Set includes the band’s entire catalog, plus mini-documentary features on each album, and the bands’ first performance in the US.

    The Beatles on iTunes? Really?

    I see the communist fruit has overtaken you as well…

      Communist? That’s going a bit far. Capitalist, yes. Communist, I don’t think so 😉

    Usually, I get my kits and fashion from They have really great prices and the quality is very good as well. The only bummer is that its takes a while for the stuff to ship to the states. Their prices are usually lower than world soccer shop as well. However, world soccer shop is a decent site too.

      World Soccer Shop is based in the United States, so shirts usually arrive faster from them in the US than Kitbag in the UK. Kitbag is very good, too, though.
