Patriots fans are hard to buy for because they already have everything a football fan could want: six championship rings.
The good news is that after the championships comes the gear. Here’s our helpful list of New England Patriots gifts to help you find the perfect present for your patriotic loved one.
Patriots Partying & Tailgaiting Gifts
A good tailgate party cannot have too much team-themed gear. It helps get your fellow loyalists in the mood, and as a bonus, it rubs your team in the face of a rival that has the audacity that comes to your party.
They have to sit in Pats-branded chairs, cool their beers with Pats coozies, and wipe their mouths with Pats-themed napkins. Want nachos? Eat them off plates that look like Bill Belichick’s face.
Patriots Canopy Set
This Patriots Canopy Set is a necessary accessory for any outdoor watch party. It may not seem like a big deal, but canopies can add a lot to a backyard tailgate.
They offer shade to keep your guests cool, protect the food, and can even help with the visibility of an outside TV.
The tent measures 9′ x 9′ for a full 81′ of total coverage. It is collapsable, portable, and easy to set up, take down, and store.
Patriots Picnic Table
If you need quick seating for your gameday gathering, this Patriots picnic table has you covered. It seats four adults and is perfect for dining on, or just using as a portable serving table.
It’s also well-sized for a kids table if your lil Pats want a table of their own. The plastic and aluminum frame is also easy to wipe down and clean afterward (which can be important if you’re using it as a kid’s table).
Bonus points for the classic Pats logo and overall throwback look. It reminds me of an old school tabletop football game.
Patriots Cornhole Set
The gang needs something to do while pregaming, and a sweet Patriots cornhole set is just the ticket.
It provides the perfect level of friendly competition to get folks in the gameday spirit, without ever risking a trip to the hospital. (Look, touch football is fun, but I don’t recommend it after too many Sam Adams).
The set comes with two 2′ x 4′ collapsable targets and eight duck-cloth bags. They even say that this is a regulation size set, which is shocking to me because I didn’t know that there were any regulations for cornhole
Gifts for Him
Don’t be the boring dunce that gives the man in your life yet another shaving kit – we can only shave so much folks. Instead, be the spouse, sibling, or generous philanthropist that gives them what they really want: gear from their favorite team.
Men’s Customizable Patriots Jersey
As every gentleman knows, special occasions require the proper attire. You wouldn’t go to the prom without a tuxedo, so why would you go to a tailgate party without a jersey?
This men’s custom Patriots jersey is perfect for any gameday occasion. The classic red looks great, but it’s also lightweight, breathable, and durable enough that you could play in it.
The name and number are fully customizable, so you can rep any player, past, present, or fictional. Even if that player is you.
Patriots Game-Used Football Cuff Links
These Patriots cufflinks made from real game-used footballs are a versatile gift. They can help you dress up your bleacher bum, or add a dash of fun to an otherwise stuffy affair.
The leather used in these cufflinks comes directly from footballs that have been used in Patriots games. Whatever the big occasion, you’ll be taking a little bit of NFL action with you.
The cufflinks themselves are sterling silver and engraved with the Pats logo on the back. There is also a unique hologram on the back that helps you track the history of the ball.
Patriots Donney & Bourke Florentine Wallet
I don’t know why, but pretty much every man I know needs a new wallet. You just don’t think about it that much, and next thing you know you’re carrying around some frayed, tattered embarrassment.
This sleek leather Dooney and Bourke florentine wallet will help your man get his stuff together again. He can ditch all those old business cards and receipts, all while repping New England.
It’s smooth, simple design offers all the storage a man needs, but without creating a giant butt-bulge. The embossed team logo is distinctive but classy enough you won’t feel awkward taking it out for big purchases.
Patriots Gifts for Kids
Indoctrination is a powerful thing. You need to teach your kids about the important things – like the Patriots – or you never know what will happen to them.
Like they could grow up to be a Jets fan. Shudder.
Gift a Patriots Kids’ Youth Jacket
This children’s Patriot’s Coaches’ jacket is a lightweight windbreaker that’s designed to resemble the ones worn by the coaching staff. It is snappy enough that can dress it up or dress it down, and it’s versatile enough for a wide range of weather.
It’s 100% polyester and machine washable, which is critical for any item of kids clothing. Also you could use it to dress your kid up like a tiny football coach, which is pretty great.
Coach’s headset not included.
Youth Custom Patriots Jersey
It’s a scientific fact that if you have a player’s jersey as a kid that you’ll love that player forever. This youth Patriots jersey can be customized with any player’s name and number, past, present, or future.
Wait, future? Yep, you got it – you can even modify it with your lil Pat’s name and favorite number.
The jersey is an officially licensed replica that comes in both home whites and the road navy.
Youth Patriots Hat (Black)
How cool is your kid? Because I’m going to be honest: your kid has to be pretty cool to pull off this sleek New Era 39THIRTY Black Rush hat.
The stretch-fit hat features a curved bill, structured crown, and an embroidered black-on-black logo. It’s durable and washable, so you can keep tight – even through the abuse that kids can give a hat.
Gifts for Babies
Let’s be honest, these aren’t gifts for babies. The babies don’t care what they’re wearing, as long as it’s soft and fits right.
Mommy and daddy, on the other hand, they care a lot about what baby wears. Maybe a little too much.
Here are some Patriot gift ideas for newborns, infants, toddlers, and the parents that take pictures of them.
Patriots Baby Bodysuit Set
Speaking as a recent father, it’s a fact that you can never have too many onesies. Babies have a fantastic talent for destroying every piece of clothing you put them in with any number of substances.
Each of these three Patriots infant bodysuits is machine washable, super soft, and, of course, adorable.
If your baby is anything like mine, you should pack all three when you take baby tailgating. There’s a chance by the end of the game you’ll have needed all three.
Patritos Baby Bro Plush Toy
Until they’re old enough to hold a football, this Baby Bro mascot plush will have to do. It’s soft, squeezable, and, while not drool-proof, it is machine washable.
The other benefit of this durable fellow is that he can double as a worry doll for daddy. Squeeze these guys during stressful plays to relieve tension (and work those forearm muscles).
Patriots Rugby Socks for Baby
There are few things that are as cute and totally unnecessary as baby socks. They can’t walk – why would they need shoes and socks?
Because they’re adorable, that’s why. These infant-size Patriots socks keep baby’s toes warm while also completing any Pats-themed baby ‘fit.
Patriots Gifts for Locals
No Pats fan is ever mad at getting clothes, accessories, and the like. If you love your team, there’s no such thing as too much gear.
But if you really, really want to impress a Patriots fans, these gifts go above and beyond. These are the types of gifts that get mentioned every future Christmas as they’re opening inevitably inferior gifts.
N.E. Patriots Hall of Fame Gift Certificate
To call the Patriots Hall of Fame a museum does not do justice to the high-tech, interactive, totally unique experience. This isn’t just dioramas and plaques, it’s a fascinating and immersive look at the great players and moments from franchise history.
You can virtually feel what it was like to make the game-winning interception from Super Bowl XLI. There are highlights on the 16′ x 9′ video wall, replicas of the team trophies, and much, much more.
Patriot Place Gift Card
Patriot Place answers the question what if I could live in a Patriots-themed world?
With food, clothing, entertainment, gifts, and more, a Pats fan really can get anything they need here. The only problem with a Patriot Place gift card is that there are way too many ways to spend it.
Something tells me they’ll figure it out though.
Gift a New England Sports Tour
There are limits to how many games even the most dedicated of fans can attend. After all, even if you have season tickets, you’ll still never be able to see any away games, right?
New England Sports Tours can help you put together the perfect away-game vacation. From hotel, to transportation, and even tickets to the game, they think of everything.
All you have to worry about is how loud to cheer when surrounded by people in the opposition’s colors.
