Gifts For Hockey Players.
Hockey Players all start somewhere, mine started on the floor!
My youngest started out with knee hockey, 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,
Why? Because it just did not seem like him!
Fast forward 10+ years and I have a kid who loves hockey, played on multiple teams at a time, and plays ice hockey year-round!
He’s tried out goalie, or may the goalie position tried him out, lol.
Now he’s a forward and from stick time to pickup games and team time, he’s always skating.
Since he is always on the ice, his equipment needs to be freshened a lot!
What Do I make sure we always have an extra of? A STICK!
Sticks Break, Get Grown Out Of So Buy A New Stick!
Sticks break, so always have a new stick on hand by shopping the Vast Selection of Hockey Sticks only at Hockeyworld.com
Where To Shop: Gifts For Hockey Players
I already gave you a hint above ~ Hockey World online!
DO you have one of these die-hard ice hockey players?
When I discovered all of the great finds at Hockey World, it was like shooting and scoring the goal of a lifetime.
I don’t have to leave my home to seek out the tiny little hockey store we have across town that generally carries, NOTHING.
Instead, I sift through that rotten smelling bag (OMG the hockey funk smell) and take a look at what needs to be updated.
Then, I look at his skates, sticks, and what he needs for practice, games, and pickup games.
I jump online, place an order and it arrives.
Whether your player is in the USA or Canada, Hockey World is your premier online hockey supply store!
There are a lot of great products out there that you can use to stuff those stockings and put under your tree!
My tips for shopping for holiday gifts for hockey players?
Start early and always be adventurous, just like those infamous 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 players (youth, jr. sr.)
Going To The Mattresses & Ice Hockey Gloves
Well, I guess if you want to be kicked out of the game, you could go to the mattresses while on ice.
Make sure you’ve got they’ve got Good Hockey Gloves on and don’t take them off.
If they are gonna take a slug at another player, gloves are needed.
In all seriousness, good Hockey Gloves are essential to player safety.
Invest in a new pair of hockey gloves!
Upgrade and update helmets.
Your kids can tell you when they can no longer squeeze into their helmet or you could get ahead of that!
Of course, make sure to read the date of validation on their helmets, they do expire if they have not outgrown them in a while.
Now if your kids are on a team that issues hockey helmets they still need one when they are not playing on that team or practicing!
Your player needs a new ice hockey bag.
The zippers get abused, the interior gets ripped up with skates.
Yeah, they don’t put their guards on all the time.
Handles snag, rip, or just fall off.
Get your player a new ice hockey bag, you’ll find a huge selection in every color.
Even if your player has a team bag, they need one for pickup games and practices!
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!
Start with Hand Deodorizer like this one!
For your own sanity and for the sake of the interior of the car, try some hockey deodorizer.
Grab these deodorizers and toss them in skates, gloves, pads, or their bag.
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 overlook 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!
Grip tape for hockey sticks needs to be in the bag at all times.
There is a color for every size and every personality!
If you do have kids that LOVE hockey, they are going to want to play all over your house.
While I can’t tell you that things don’t get broken along the way, these balls are perfect to keep things a little lighter!
Get a few bags, as they are sure to also turn into a tossing war!
