Dat Holiday Gift Guide 2015

Everybody has a gift guide these days, and what is it really but your own wish list? So we won’t pretend this isn’t just everything we really want for the holidays. If you see something you like, you better hurry up though, most of these spots are close to their holiday delivery deadlines. And, we might just cop the last one ourselves. Check it out.

For that vintage sports aficionado:

1989 DETROIT PISTONS CARICATURE VINTAGE TEE

Detroit_fr_det2__28447.1448672789.1280.1280

UNDRCRWN / $90.00

Every year UNDRCRWN drops hot fire around the holidays, but nothing has filled our souls with longing more than this here Detroit Bad Boys tee. Is it worth the $90 price tag? Guess that depends on how much this one-of-a-kind tee means to you. Literally, there is only one of its kind.

And really, the whole site is on the wish list. Need a different kind of ugly Christmas sweater, they got you. Need a tee to drink to world peace, got you. (We really need that World Peace tee).

UNDRCRWN / $33.00

Some of us have been a little obsessed with vintage caricature tees. Homage.com always has solid offers, but this one of Ickey Woods doing his famous shuffle is our favorite. If you don’t know the Ickey Shuffle, refer to his Geico commercial.

For that Ugly Sweater Party:

Chances are slim they’ll get to you before your ugly sweater party, but just in case, Fresh Brewed Tees has all your topical ugly sports sweaters in one place. The Jose Bautista bat flip sweater got a lot of love on Twitter, but we need Cam’s “Dabbin’ in the Snow” joint.

For that artsy sports fan in your life:

BLAKE PRINT

BOUNCEx3 / $15.00 

We featured J.O. Applegate’s artwork last year, too, and he’s got some new stuff in his store. His work has been seen in everything from Vice Sports, ESPN Playbook, SI Extra Mustard, and Buzzfeed Sports to Dime Magazine. We’re partial to the Mecha Gasol because it’s fucking weird man and beautiful.

REBOUNDING MACHINE

There is also plenty of amazing basketball-themed work at Jacob-Weinstein.com. From the Free Darko collective, there is plenty of Free Darko work in the store including this classic print of Bubba Chuck. But, of the newer work, this “Great Jews of Basketball” print is pretty great.

ALLEN IVERSON “ONE SHINING MOMENT” PRINT

For that sports book lover (the other kind):

BARBARIAN DAYS: A SURFING LIFE

barbarian_days

AMAZON / $13.14

Jay Caspian Kang wrote a review that has everything you need to know about this book. It’s a great read whether you’re a surfer or not. And Amare’s cookbook? Yes, why not. It’s still available.

COOKING WITH AMARE: 100 RECIPES FOR PROS & ROOKIES IN THE KITCHEN

amare_stoudemire_cookbook

AMAZON / $19.01

For that Kobe stan in your life:

KOBE BRYANT “DEAR BASKETBALL” POEM REPRINT

s-l1600

EBAY / $14.99+

Not willing to throw hundreds at an original copy of Kobe’s retirement poem? You can get a reasonable facsimile on eBay for just $14.99. Should you tell your Kobe stan it’s a reprint? We’ll leave it to you.

For that Jeremy Lin stan in your life:

JEREMY LIN BOBBLEHEAD, TOWEL AND ACTION FIGURE

jeremy_lin_gift_set

EBAY / $25.00

Yes, #LINSANITY is prospering in Charlotte, but there isn’t any good merch for him yet. But you can get some goods from the last franchise that bothered to give him a bobblehead. We can’t say much for the seller, but this might be a gift set worth taking the risk on. None of these items are going for cheaper than this individually.

That’s it, that’s all we got. Happy holidays.
