As you know, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. You’re probably thinking, “Yeah, so what’s that got to do with hockey?” Well, nothing really. Except that you’re likely trying to come up with a good gift idea, right? Well, just for you, I’ve compiled a short list of cool Valentine’s Day gift ideas for the hockey-lover in your life.
One thing you can always count on is that hockey players need gear. Constantly. Gloves wear out, sticks break, skates dull. The first place to look for some great new stuff is the pro shop at your local rink. They’ll have anything and everything your hockey player needs. Of course, if you don’t know what they need, consider a gift basket made up of hockey essentials - Tape, sharpening stone, laces, and there’s always the can’t-go-wrong gift certificate. This way, they can buy whatever they like.
Rather than dinner and a movie, why not take your better half to a public skating session? It’s fun, different, and your local rink may even have a special engagement planned for the holiday.
App-y Valentine’s Day
This is a cool one. If your hockey-fanatic is tech savvy and enjoys spending time on their tablet or smartphone, you might want to consider buying them a hockey app. There are literally hundreds of hockey-themed games, books, movies and music available for just about every device. Do a quick search and you’ll be bombarded with them in no time. One of the coolest ones around is called “SpeedClock Lite”. It’s used like a radar gun to calculate the speed of a baseball pitch, or in this case, a hockey slapshot! The best part is that it’s FREE. Your hockey player will have a blast with his teammates clocking they’re power during the next practice.
Spread the Love
So if you’re tired of the same old flowers n’ candy Valentine’s junk, give the gift of hockey this year! Nothing says “love” like ice and sharp skates. You know I’m right.
