The Holiday Playbook: 5 Gifts to Score For the Basketball Player in Your Life

Most of us are probably gifting multiple basketball lovers this holiday season. Here are 5 gifts to fast-track your shopping list.

Whether they’re pro ballers or casual weekend players, we all have multiple basketball players in our family and in our friend groups. And as often as they play, it always seems like they don’t need anything else on the court.

But, even though they have everything they need, that doesn’t mean you can’t spoil them with something special this holiday season.

Here are five gifts that any basketball player would love to open up on Christmas day.

1. Nike NBA Courtside Max 90

You can’t go wrong with a t-shirt of their favorite NBA team, like the Nike Courtside Max 90 NBA Shirt. The graphic designs are a fresh take on the usual team logo, and these are sure to make it to their heavy rotation pile in their closet.

2. SKLZ Pro Mini Basketball Hoop

Let the basketball player in your life practice their skills even when they’re in their bedroom with the SKLZ Pro Mini Basketball Hoop. Bonus points if you get them the Midnight version that glows in the dark. They’ll literally be able to ball any time they want.

3. NBA Basketball Elbow Guard

Let the basketball player in your life represent their favorite NBA team even when they’re playing on the court wearing another jersey with Decathlon’s line of Basketball Elbow Guards. Plus points (literally) if wearing these add an extra spring in their step whenever they play.

4. Stance NBA Socks

As far as socks go, it’s hard to do better than Stance. They’re comfortable, snug in all the right places, and of course, stylish. Get them all kinds of designs so they can show up to the court looking as fresh as they play.

5. Air Jordan 11 Retro ‘Varsity Red’

And if you want to really spoil them this holiday season, get the basketball player in your life a brand-new pair of kicks. The Air Jordan 11 Retro in Varsity Red is a classic. You’re going to want to document their faces when they unbox this gift.

If you’re a baller yourself, tell us, which one would you love to receive most?
