Custom gifts for sports fans

With the holidays approaching, it's time to turn your thoughts to Christmas gifts - and if you're wondering what to get the sports fan in your life, customised accessories could fit the bill perfectly.

There's nothing like a flash of team colours or a recognisable logo to give your sports-loving friends and family a thrill - and with a custom gift, you're sure to land yourself on Santa's nice list in the run-up to 2012.

The beauty of custom gifts is they can be specifically tailored for one individual or a group. Whether you are after unique ties featuring a favourite footy team or something a bit more niche, there's a unique gift for every occasion.

For example, kids' soccer coaches might want to reward their players for a strong season by kitting their young players out in ties featuring the team colours, while your mates from the weekend footy team might want to show their solidarity with custom cufflinks

You will also want to remember sports-related gifts for the fans who cheer on the sidelines - whether you're cheering for your favourite AFL team or your local school, scarves and other accessories in the team colours can be a great way to show your support.
