With the holidays fast approaching, there are plenty of options for those looking to find the right gift for the Boston sports fan in their life.

While you might not be able to gift a berth in the Patriots playoffs, you can still find something that a local fan will enjoy.

Here are a few Boston sports themed Christmas gift ideas.

Go Up For Glory by Bill Russell

Originally published in 1966 (and recently back in print), Go Up For Glory was Bill Russell’s first memoir. Not only does it chronicle his early life and career with the Celtics, but it continues to offer prescient and timeless observations of the world through Russell’s eyes. $15.81

Red Sox City Connect Replica Jersey

Though a major departure from traditional Red Sox colors, City Connect jerseys have become a familiar feature of Boston baseball in recent seasons. If you’re trying to find a special gift for a Sox fan, the yellow and light blue look might be a home run. $139.99

Ski Monster Gift Card

Since buying new skis is above the average vacation budget, a gift card to the Boston store may be a more realistic option. Stocked with all kinds of ski and snowboard clothing and gear, Ski Monster could provide your snow sports friends with just the goggles, gloves or a new helmet they’ve been missing. Starting at $100

Bruins Winter Classic SMS gloves

If you’re not trying to buy a jersey, a more practical winter-themed Bruins gift might suffice. Why not go with a pair of gloves that can be worn at a hockey game? The gloves also feature the famous/infamous Bruins “Pooh Bear” logo. $25

Granite Links gift card

As the crowds at the 2022 US Open in Brookline showed, golf is a hugely popular local game. If you’re trying to encourage friends to try or further hone their skills, why not pay for a bucket at Granite Links Practice Grounds in Quincy? From $15

Red Long Sleeve Patriots T-Shirt

True dominance is when an opponent can’t stop you, even if you can be seen a mile away. So it was for Patriots linebacker Matthew Judon, who has been one of the NFL’s top pass rushers this season while sporting bright red sleeves. Get some style this holiday season with this wildly cool throwback tee. $44.99

Bill Russell canvas wall art

Remember one of the greatest Boston athletes who ever lived with this colorful 24×36 canvas print of a smiling Bill Russell wearing multiple championship rings. A worthy addition to any room in the house. And there are multiple size options to suit every budget. $116.99

Green monster scoreboard print

OK, that’s coming from way out of left field, but how about a replica of the Fenway’s Green Monster scoreboard? Seems Wally would agree. $33.15

Framed North Station MBTA sign

This is for the die-hard Celtics [or Bruins] fans in the group. A two foot wide replica of the MBTA sign at North Station, the closest stop to TD Garden, enclosed in a handcrafted wooden case. Prints of all MBTA stops including Kenmore [Fenway Park] and Foxboro [Gillette Stadium] are also available. $49.95

Every Boston Sports Championship banner of all time

This is for the person in your life who has a passion for Boston sports and way too much extra room on their hands. Represent every Boston sports championship with a replica banner for each year. Between the Celtics, Patriots, Red Sox and Bruins, that’s a lot of banners. $279
