UrbanMatter’s Chicago Sports Gift Guide for the Holidays

Black Friday and Cyber Monday came and went about as fast as the holiday weekend did. We barely had time to grab our Thanksgiving seconds before the deals disappeared. But, for those of you who haven’t done enough shopping already, there’s still plenty of time to make those wallets hurt before Christmas. So, if you have any Chi-Town sports fans who still need some presents, then look no further than our Chicago sports gift guide!

Chicago Sports Gifts for the Golfer

Now might not be the best time to hit the links in Chicago, but that doesn’t mean you can’t shop for the golfers in your life. If you’re an Amazon Primer, you can score free shipping on a couple sets of Chicago sports golf balls. These Chicago Cubs themed balls are perfect for any northside fan, while these Chicago Bears golf balls come with their own set of tees. Plus, the orange Bears color of the balls will make hunting down those not-so-accurate drives much easier!

Grown Up Gifts

When the holidays and in-laws come into town, it’s no secret that the booze starts flowing. Upgrade your favorite Chicago sports fan’s drinking experience with these boozy holiday gifts. 

We’ve recommended these Chicago sports inspired frosted mugs before in our Father’s Day gift guide earlier in the year, and we’d be fools not to include them again. But, if you’re looking for something better than a couple of mugs, try out this collection of Chicago Bears beer taps from The Bradford Exchange. Don’t combine these two gifts though, you’ll never be able to top it!


Board Gamer Presents

Board games and the holidays are another duo that go hand-in-hand when celebrating the holidays with loved ones. This year, ditch the Yahtzee and Euchre with some classic Chicago sports trivia! The You Gotta Know Chicago trivia card game includes 125 playable cards with 500 questions about our city’s favorite teams. Or, for the more traditional board game route, check out this collectors edition Chicago Bears Monopoly game on eBay. We’re not sure if the seller has multiple copies or made a typo when listing the item, but $40 for a sealed vintage game of Chicago Bears Monopoly? We had to hold ourselves back on this one.


Treats for the Chicago Aesthetic

Etsy is one of the best websites to look for custom gifts for any theme or occasion. Sure, you’re probably paying a little extra to go this route, but in our experience it can’t be beat. These last set of items on our Chicago sports gift guide will help complete that Chicago aesthetic for both home decor, and the wardrobe.

Empty mancave walls need some love? Fill it up with this 4-foot long vinyl banner that just screams Chicago sports. Or if some classy wall-art is more of your thing, shop this Illinois-shaped metal sign that features the Bulls, Bears, Blackhawks, Cubs, and White Sox. And to top it all off, this Chicago logo mashup tee will fit perfectly with any game playing on that mancave TV.

Are these ideas not good enough? You can shop for more Chicago sports gifts through these dedicated collections on Amazon and Etsy if your heart desires. Happy shopping, and happy holidays from all of us at UrbanMatter!
