8 Champion Gift Ideas for Your Champion Coach

By Oliver Lee

Coaches work hard all season. If you’re on the team or not, we all know at least one coach, from your local neighborhood teams to the major leagues. We also know their dedication to the game from training camp and try outs to the championships. Besides a winning season, sometimes it can be hard to know what kind of gift to give. There are many ways to show your appreciation or simply to give them some attention since most of the time their attention is on building a great sports program. For every case, we have some amazing gifts for your favorite coach!


You may think that a basketball coach gets tired of seeing basketballs by the end of the season but here’s a gift that’s the exception! This full-sized basketball is more of a memorabilia object that can be fully customized. The basketball’s panels can be decorated in the team’s colors and feature the coach’s name, and also the entire team players as well as the season year. This is a great gift for remembering an amazing year or even to recognize the players that the coach trained. Wouldn’t it be cool if looking back, one or more of the players went on to be NBA MVPs?

Being a coach can mean a lot of early mornings and late nights. A good way to kick start their day, or give them that last boost for the day is a nice cup of coffee served in their very own travel mug. This stainless steel mug is designed with plastic details and can be customized with printed text and image. May we suggest a team logo? This mug is perfect for the away games and will keep their drink hot or cold the entire trip.
