Can you believe Father’s Day is right around the corner? I’m always looking for a meaningful gift to give my husband and today I’ve partnered with Wilson Sporting Goods to share a super cool personalized Father’s Day gift idea! The football fans in your life will LOVE this!
Gifts for Football Fans
My husband didn’t really become a football fan until a few years ago. I think it started because he became friends with a football player and wanted to support him. It lead to the rest of the family watching too (I say “watching” REAL loosely since I’m usually on Pinterest or reading a magazine at the same time…).
Then the kids at school started talking sports and my oldest son became very interested in stats and the star players. This lead my family to creating fantasy football teams and following along with the season. I used Twitter to help me pick my team and while I still wouldn’t really call myself a “fan” it was a super fun activity to do with the family (I won btw…).
Slowly but surely football spilled out of our living room and in to the street as my husband and sons started throwing around a football and pretended to play games. This year I knew exactly what I wanted to get my husband. A custom football is an awesome gift idea!My husband is the best father ever. He’s basically a big kid and loves to play with the boys. He’s an all-around good guy and is a rad role model for the kids. While we try to take care of him the whole year, Father’s Day let’s us really fawn over him a little more than usual. Let’s just ignore the fact that my youngest son has his face painted to look like a slice of pizza shall we…My husband doesn’t need fancy gifts to make him happy but this year we made him a super special gift that he will be able to treasure forever.
If you have a football fan in your house, you need to know about the amazing custom footballs that you can order from Wilson Sporting Goods. They are the number one brand in football and when you head to their site, you can create a one-of-a-kind, personalized, replica leather game ball! So cool!
There are a number of options of pre designed templates to help you create this awesome gift. And it isn’t just for Father’s Day! They also have some graduation options too! Each custom ball can be designed to feature a photo, collage or favorite pro team accents along with a special message. Our custom ball arrived and we couldn’t help but give it to dad early. It comes in a really nice box that makes it feel even more special (as if having your face on a football wasn’t special enough…)
But that isn’t where our story ends. My husband’s family is very close-knit. His dad retired a few years ago and really started working on his art after not doing it for 30 years. He recently painted this portrait of our family and it is really special to us. When I knew I needed to find a photo of my husband to create this custom football, it HAD to be the painted version of my husband. I knew it would mean a lot to my husband and celebrate his dad at the same time. That is what makes a great gift! It turned out SO great!!! If you have a football fan in your life be sure to order your custom Father’s Day football early enough to get here in time for Father’s Day!Of course the boys wanted to play with the football and I had to explain what a “keepsake” was. My husband loved this gift and we can’t wait to show it to his dad.
