Need a last-minute gift idea? Do you just want to see what NFL players and coaches get each others for the holiday? This article is for you.
#1 – Mike Tomlin
Black Nike Air Force 1s.
If you’re like but wait a moment – Air Force 1s don’t come in black. You would be correct. Unless you’re Mike Tomlin who had a artist hand paint all 146 pairs of shoes. He gave them out as early Christmas gifts earlier this season.
If you know, you know. But if you don’t – there’s such a thing as Black Air Force energy. Which is basically another way to describe the Pittsburg Steelers mentality towards playing ball. We see you, Tomlin.
He was also serving looks yesterday with a different pair of Air Force 1 Low in the White Black colorway. He was sending a message to the Panthers, but just a subtle one.
#2 – Jimmy G
Carrying on the shoe theme, Jimmy Garoppolo gave all of his teammates Jordan XI’s for Christmas in 2018. What have we learned so far? Shoes are a yes.
#3 – Tom Brady
If you are looking for a gift for that VSCO girl in your life, and you want to put something under a tree next to her new hydro flask, Tom Brady has a practical idea for you.
Waterproof chocolate brown Ugg boots…
In 2016, Brady gifted his teammates some ugg boots. Somehow we think this landed differently than some Nikes or Jordans.
We hear that Brady had better gifts other years… things like iPads, and watches.
The best thing about this gift? Ted Karras being so grateful for them. Don’t count on that reaction, but it’s very sweet.
#4 – Jamaal Williams
Is there someone in your life that’s greatest gift is you? You may be able to get inspo from Williams creative robe design.
Williams gifted all of his teammates and coaches a robe covered with him flexing in a Lions uniform. It was a hit in the locker room, it could be a hit for you too.
#5 – Matthew Stafford
If you are looking to gift a group of people – Stafford’s idea is great.
He reportedly allowed players to choose select items from the Yeti website, according to his former teammate. Personalization, but within reason. Who doesn’t want their own YETI cooler?
Stafford also wins the Holiday spirit award – he has gifted members of the community more than once – personally bringing people gifts. He even stayed to play Madden.
Not just quarterbacks get in on the action – Lions Guard Halapoulivaati Vaitai, reportedly gifted his teammates Bose speakers and Shinola watches. Lamar Jackson also went the watch route, and got his O-line Rolex watches. That’s a man who knows who watches his back – literally.
Aaron Rodgers got his O-line a 65-inch Samsung TV in 2019, and personalized ATVs in 2017. He doesn’t forget anyone – even someone who had transferred from another team three days before gift day. We can add thoughtful to the list of words that can be used to describe Rodgers. Although it would be a bummer to be on the defense.
Grills also appear to be a popular gift. Jameis Winston reportedly gifted his teammates a Big Green Egg Charcoal Grill, and then gave them Omaha Steakhouse gift cards so they can taste what grilled food is supposed to taste like (just kidding – one can’t help but roast). Josh Allen delivered Traeger grills to his O-line on Christmas Eve.
