When someone close to you moves into a new place, it is customary to get them a housewarming gift. Sure, you can go with the old standbys like a bottle of fancy wine or a nice houseplant but, while nice, that stuff is old news. Why be like everyone else when you can go next-level with your housewarming gift?
Especially if the person who is moving is a huge sports fan, there are a lot of next-level housewarming gifts you can consider. Not only will these gifts go a long way to making this person’s new house (or apartment) feel like a home but every time they look at it or use it, they will think of their awesome friend who gifted it to them. Here are a few next-level housewarming gifts for sports fans.
Sports Wall Art
Giving someone wall art as a housewarming gift is a bold step. You are saying that you know their tastes and are gifting them something that you know they will want to display prominently in their home. If you are close enough with your favorite sports fan to know exactly what they like, sports-themed wall art is a great gift. There are lots of clocks with logos or helmets of your friend’s favorite team or you can get a classic spirts picture.
Every sports fan would love to have one of the most iconic photographs in their favorite sport hanging in their TV room or Man Cave as a great sports conversation piece. If you can find Ali standing over Liston, Michael Jordan flying from the free-throw line, Dwight Clarke in the back of the end zone, or Brandi Chastain waving her jersey, it will be something any sports fan would love to hang.
Ping Pong Table
If your sports fan friend or family member is more of an active participant in sports than a passive observer, you may want to get them a sports game that they can actually participate in at home. This is why a ping pong table makes an incredible next-level house warming gift. It is something that the homeowner and his or her friends can enjoy together in a fun and engaging way.
Depending on the space that the person’s new home has and how much you are interested in spending, there is a wide range of ping pong tables available. These tables range from very large, professional, heavy-duty models that are quite expensive to ones that are smaller, more portable or storable, and less expensive.

A Sports Television Package
For the new homeowner who never wants to miss a game, a great gift would be to get them a season-long subscription to their favorite league. Depending on what their favorite sport is, the NBA League Pass, NFL Sunday Ticket, MLB Extra Innings, NHL Center Ice, or NBC Sports Gold (for the English Premier League in the U.S.) all have every game available for that given league.
One thing you have to be aware of if you decide to gift someone this awesome gift is that some of the packages are only available with certain services. While you can get the NBA League Pass package and the Premier League package through almost any service, the MLB package and the NFL package have some restrictions. The MLB package is only available on Dish, DirecTV, and Xfinity but you can substitute MLB.TV on most devices. The Sunday ticket was once only available on DirecTV but now can be found on other streaming devices.
Any good Man Cave should have a proper bar with not only the right selection of all the most popular spirits and mixers but also all the barware and glassware you need to mix any popular cocktail and entertain at least a half dozen people or more. What better way for a sports fan to show off their allegiance to their team by getting all of this swag emblazoned with their favorite team’s logo?
Team logo glassware is the easiest to find and you can gift your sports fan friend a wide array of sizes and styles of glassware all with their favorite team’s logo right on the side. In addition to that, you can find logoed shakers, muddlers, beer taps, and all kinds of other fun bar-related items. Your fandom doesn’t stop when you head to the bar for a drink and a sports fan’s home bar should reflect that.
This gift is definitely next-level but it will only work for the right kind of person. If your friend is an outdoor winter sports enthusiast and also likes to party hard on the weekends, there is no better gift for a home bar than a shotski. A shotski is literally a ski with anywhere from 2 to 6 or more shot glasses attached to it. To use it, you grab a few friends, pour their favorite shots, and all tip the ski and take the shot together.
This housewarming present is definitely not for everyone but if you know the right person they may absolutely love this gift. While the shotski was one mostly found in cold weather frat houses, the shotski as seen an increase in popularity in the last few years. It is now commonly featured on fun-loving TV shows like NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
Don’t be like everyone else. Be unique and different. You can easily accomplish these things by eschewing the traditional, boring housewarming gift and giving a next-level gift like one of the ones above. Especially if you are buying for a sports fan, they will love the new, fun addition to their new home. These gifts will show that you know just how important sports are to them and that you understand how they like to show their sports fandom.How To Migrate To Canada Without IELTS - A must read for anyone looking for a better life abroad"....
