From the time your son was a little boy, was his favorite toy a ball? Then you probably realized that he was extra well-coordinated and playing sports came very easy to him, often being picked as team captain. If that's a pretty good description of your son, you are more than likely trying to come up with a great present to give him for Christmas this year. From buying athletic shoes to giving him an experience he'll never forget, here are some ideas that might help you.
Athletic Shoes - Even if your son already has good athletic shoes, he will probably think of you as his hero when he opens his big Christmas present to find the athletic shoes he has been dreaming of. When you shop for them, consider taking a pair of shoes that he wears often so that the clerk at the store can duplicate the size of the shoe. Did you ever think you'd see men wearing colors like green, purple, orange, and other bright colors other feet? Don't hesitate to get those, as your son will fit right in with other guys who are wearing brightly colored athletic shoes. Consider purchasing a special cleaner that will help to keep the athletic shoes looking great. Even though the athletic shoes will probably be a bit costly, they will more than likely last for a very long time. And, of course, athletic shoes come in all prices, so you don't have to spend an arm and a leg on the ones you purchase.
A Gift Basket - Have you already been thinking that a gift basket would be a lot of fun for your son to receive? If not, consider giving him several items in a basket that is really something like a duffel bag or another type of container for his athletic gear. The container could hold things like the athletic shoes he's been wanting, a great t-shirt, dark glasses, and anti-fog spray. But, the big surprise is in an envelope that is at the bottom of the container. Consider giving your son tickets to the big football, basketball, baseball, or any other game he has always dreamed of attending. Sweeten the deal by giving him some cash to spend on his trip. And, of course, buy an extra ticket for you or your spouse, or a friend so that your son won't go to the game by himself. After all, part of the fun will be in sharing the experience with somebody who is special to him.
