Christmas Gifts for Sports Mad Men

Christmas Gifts for Sports Mad Men

This one’s for you if, like me, you’ve got a few sports or fitness fans to buy for this Christmas. We’ve got everything from rugby to weight lighting and running going on so there’s plenty to choose from when Christmas shopping. I’m staying away from novelty gifts on the grounds that I’ve just had a week of decluttering on monumental proportions and have recycled quite a few unopened novelty gifts. The desktop golf set, wind up rugby player and (cheap) replica shirts are now in a charity shop ready to be regifted to another lucky present receiver.

Nope, this year I’m going quality over quantity and my research so far has found these beauties…..
