‘Tis the Season for Sporting Gear


The 2012 holiday season is quickly approaching which means it is time to start buying gifts! Between trying to find a parking spot at malls and shopping centers and the busyness of stores, I hate shopping this time of year though! In the last couple of years, I started doing the majority of my shopping online and only went to the crowded stores when necessary.

My holiday shopping isn’t too difficult since a lot of my family and friends are huge sports fans. Buying them the latest gear of their favorite team is a no-brainer to me! What makes it even better is the endless amount of websites that sell collegiate merchandise. I found this great site, Longhorn Planet, where I was able to get presents for my dad, uncle and brother. They offer a wide selection of University of Texas hats and since the men in my family always seem to be wearing a hat, I knew it would be the perfect gift for each of them! I can’t wait to give my brother the hat below, but first, I need to pick up some t-shirts for the Kentucky fans I know!

If you’re like me and have a lot of sports fans to buy for, avoid the hassle of going to stores and shop online! Trust me; it will make your holiday season much more enjoyable! Happy (online) shopping!
