My youngest started out with knee hockey, an unending devotion to the carpet! I think the floor above my head rocked more often than anything else in the house! His love for hockey all started by one young friend gifting him a knee hockey set, something I doubt I would have ever purchased, because it just did not seem like him! Fast forward 8+ years and I have a kid who loves hockey. Hockey is something your kid will either really like or really won’t and there are so many great hockey gifts out there, that you will be able to fill up under the tree if you just start looking!
DO you have a kid that eats and sleeps hockey? I have a few of them too and every year as it becomes time to shop for the holidays I look for cool stuff to add to their stockings and of course to save my nose from their hockey funk! There are a lot of great products out there that you can use to stuff those stockings, and deck out your holiday gift list with that won’t break the bank. My tips for shopping for hockey and holidays is simple, start early and always be adventurous, just like the hockey road trips! Try out new products, look for things that can fill the stockings and their hockey bags! There are so many fun things you can buy for hockey kids(and adults too) that so indulge and see what my Holiday Gifts For Hockey Players has to offer as I lavishly live hockey out loud!
KNEE HOCKEY SETS
The one thing I can’t give you that every parent wants is the ticket to get into the NHL, sorry that is not this story! I can give you a few gifts that will let your future hockey star shine on at home as they play with these terrific finds! Are your kids finding hockey interesting and you are not sure if they would really like it? Things like knee hockey and Goalie Sets are a great way to test out their true passion and if it is a no, there was not a huge investment to worry about!
When you buy these, make sure you get two nets and buy extra sticks, trust me on this!
We always buy an extra pair or two because pick up games and playing as an extra in games on different teams when called on necessitates the need for these! The hockey socks you buy will make great stocking stuffers. Buy a basic color it makes life easier!
For your own sanity and for the sake of the interior of the car, invest in a few balls, and really it does not matter what brand, just keep on replacing either the cartridges withing or the balls themselves! Don’t smell that hockey funk ever and these make great stocking stuffers! Your nose will thank you and you won’t have to ride home with the windows open.
Don’t over look the small things, like skate ties and hockey pulls, as well as blade covers, all these things need to be in that hockey players’ bag!
There are waxed and unwaxed laces – is this personal preference.
Blade Covers are really important as not only can they serve as a way to dry the player’s skates, they also keep them safe from nicks and chips! There is a color for every size and every personality!
Of course don’t forget the downtime and give them something that will let them get a bit creative~GREAT collection of NHL Action Figures!
If you do have kids that LOVE hockey, they are going to want to play all over your house, and while I can’t tell you that things don’t get broken along the way, these balls are a perfect to keep things a little lighter! Get a few bags, as they are sure to also turn into a tossing war!
These are a just a few of the great things out there that are perfect for your budding ice hockey enthusiast! Remember be adventurous and indulge your kids a bit with a few fun things that might just spur on their favorite new activity! I hope you lavishly live hockey out loud and enjoy the Holiday Gifts For Hockey Players. What other items do you purchase?
