2017 Only A Game Holiday Gift Guide

It's that time of year again, when stockings must be stuffed, trees trimmed and Menorahs lit. Worried about what to buy that sports fan in your life? Only A Game has you covered. For your shopping convenience, we've compiled some of the finest sports-themed gifts money can buy.

From a distance, this 3D night light might look like a 3D helmet. The kind NFL players might wear in a safer, more technologically-advanced era. But as you get closer, you'll see it's really a flat, acrylic glass sheet brought to multidimensional life by LEDs. And it's not just for Giants fans. These nightlights come with logos of other NFL and college teams, too. For the non-sports fan, there are variations, including horse heads, guitars and the Star Wars Death Star.


Ohio State Ohio-Shaped Wall Art: $42.00

For those who love (The) Ohio State University, (the) shape of Ohio and distressed wood, this is (the) perfect gift. Take a closer look, and you'll see a map of Ohio with some of its major cities and highways. It might be good for navigating around (the) edges of (the) state. But finding (The) Ohio State University with this map could be a bit of a challenge. (The) (The) Ohio State University logo appears to obscure Columbus as if it's some giant UFO floating over the center of the state.


MLB Minifigures And Buildables: $9.99

2017 World Series MVP George Springer belted a record-tying five home runs in the Fall Classic to help his Houston Astros win their first ever World Series title. Now you can celebrate with your own mini George Springer, as well as the rest of the Houston Astros, umpires and even the lime-green Astros mascot, Orbit. (Note: Jose Altuve minifigure is actual size.)


Hole In One Golf Mug: $9.95

If we had a nickel for every time someone asked us "Is there a coffee mug that would help me improve my golf game?" we'd be broadcasting each week from Only A Game National Golf Course in some balmy, exclusive clime. Well, we missed our bet. Because the Hole In One Golf Mug is not just a mug — it's a personal putting green. Sort of. It comes with a mini golf ball and mini putter, giving coffee drinkers the rare opportunity to enjoy a delicious morning beverage while shaving strokes off their game. You can even keep track of your progress with the club's built-in pen. It's the sporty mug that just might help you get through the front nine of your day.


Mug With A Glove: $9.99

If golf isn't your style, check out Mug With A Glove. It's perfect for lovers of hot chocolate with mini marshmallows, clam chowder with oyster crackers or ice cream with toppings. This mug is sure to be a big hit, whatever food you play with.


Bill Belichick Ugly Sweater: $45.00

Nothing inspires holiday cheer like the facial expression of New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick after a loss. Or even after a win. This sweater is sure to conjure visions of dancing sugarplums and flying red challenge flags every holiday season.

Major League Baseball has been looking for a way to speed up play. And this might be the way to do it. Deadball is a fast-paced dice game that simulates a baseball contest by using statistics like batting average and ERA. Are you noticing this, Commissioner Manfred?


Snow Ski Wine Rack: $58.00

For the après-ski set, here's a gift that will keep on giving whether you're in your Aspen digs or back home in the flatlands. For $58, you can take home a pair of these handmade "skis" that store up to six bottles of wine. Definitely not for use on the slopes.

Happy Holidays from all of us here at Only A Game.
