Shopping for moms who love sports

Guys aren't the only one who love sports. If Mom is a sports fanatic, give her a holiday gift of tickets, memorabilia, team gear and other sports-related merchandise.

The most obvious gift for the sports fan is the gift of tickets. Get Mom a pair of great seats to an upcoming game or consider buying a partial or full season package. You never know — she might even take you with her. You can find tickets for almost any sport at TicketMaster or StubHub.

Team gear

Instead of a simple T-shirt or jersey of her favorite team, think outside the box for sports gear. You can find everything from shot glasses (FansEdge, $36) to clocks emblazoned with sports logos. FansEdge, FinishLine or your local sporting goods store are the places to start for team gear.

Satellite radio

For the sports fanatic mom who is always on the go, the gift of satellite radio is a must. You can get satellite radio for the car, at home, on your computer or even on your smart phone. Check out all the SiriusXM satellite radios available and then select a subscription package, or you can pick a radio with a prepaid card to let her choose.

Sports TV package

Add on a sports package to her cable or satellite TV subscription so that she can watch all her favorite games. There are so many sports packages available these days. For the basketball fan, try NBA League Pass (, $179), and for the football fan, check out NFL Sunday Ticket to watch all the regular season games both live on TV and online.

Magazine subscription

Though you can get up-to-the-minute sports news all over the internet these days, nothing beats a good sports magazine for in-depth interviews and feature articles. Consider buying mom a subscription to Sports Illustrated (Amazon, $39) or another magazine geared toward her specific sport of interest.
