Christmas is just around the corner once again and it’ll be here before we know it! If your child is anything like my cousins and I were growing up, they’ll be active, competitive and always up for a good run around! As a child, I was a HUGE tomboy, and soccer (or football as we know it in the UK!) was – and still is – my favorite sport.
When it comes to buying gifts for soccer fans, whether they like to play the game or just watch it, there are plenty of options; many of which people may not even think of. Sure, any soccer fan will probably appreciate you buying them the shirt of their favorite team, but why not try buying them a soccer gift that they can make more use of?
This lens gives some ideas for gifts that you can give to any soccer-mad kids you may know. Whether they enjoy playing the sport, or just watching, I’m sure you’ll find something that a young starlet can make use of.
SKLZ Star Kick Soccer Trainer
This is a great item to have for any child who loves to play soccer, whether they are just starting out or want to improve on the skills they already have. The durable tether stretches up to 18 feet, giving your child lots of freedom when it comes to honing their skills and building up their passing and shooting power without fear of breaking any windows!
This Star Kick Soccer Trainer will provide endless hours of fun and can improve confidence in soccer playing children as they can put in extra practice away from the field to improve their skills and coordination.
SKLZ Kickster Goal
This sturdy and easy to set up goal is ideal for soccer players of any level to practice and play at home. The Tension-Tite poles snap together easily to create a strong frame, to make it reliable as well as simple to construct. It’s portable, so can be set up in the back garden, or taken away on family vacations to keep your children busy and entertained!
PUGG 4 Footer Portable Training Goal
This pop-up goal from PUGG is ideal for those who don’t want to set up a more sturdy goal in their garden, or would just like to take it on outings so your children can play on travels. Great for taking to the park or the beach to keep kids entertained, this goal pops up with a quick twist and is just as easy to take down. The anchoring pegs work well to keep the goal in place and to make sure it doesn’t blow away!
These PUGG goals are also available in sets of two so your children can play competitively against each other, and bigger 6-ft options.
Champion Sports 9 Inch Colored Cones
With the help of these cones, your child can learn and develop new skills, improve their pace and dribbling technique, and have unlimited amounts of fun!
They can be set up for the player to dribble around to gain extra practice with having the ball at their feet and keeping control, used as goal posts to practice shooting, or set at distances to improve passing to a target. There really is no limit to what the cones can be used for. A must-have for parents of children who seriously want to improve their game and have fun while doing so.
Scoot N Shoot Indoor Soccer
This indoor soccer set from Diggin is a fun and safe way for children to play soccer in the house. The flat-bottomed ball glides on almost all surfaces and is weighted to ensure that the ball stays low, eliminating the risk of any valuables around the house being broken.
Ideal for use on a rainy day when your child can’t play soccer outside, or in the evenings when it’s too dark to play out. The goals are small and don’t take up much room, making it the perfect solution for the soccer-mad kid to play whenever he wants!
