Buying a unique tie for the sports fan in your life

With football season fast approaching this is an ideal time to treat your sports fan friend to a special gift that they can use to show support for their favourite team.

Whether you are buying for an AFL, NRL, A-League or Rugby Union supporter the key is to present them with something interesting in order to make an impact - yet still formal enough to be paraded at the office.

It is hard to go wrong with a unique tie specifically designed using the famous colours of the team your loved one follows closely.

You can choose whether to give them a one-off piece created using one of your own images, a personalised version featuring a club name and emblem or a traditional striped business tie in the appropriate combination of bold colours.

This gift is bound to please any dad, brother, husband, boyfriend or mate with a passion for a particular football code or club and he will not doubt be proud to wear your thoughtful present at every available opportunity.

And if the team happens to make the grand final later this year you can bet he will be quick to base his entire game-day outfit around this exquisite and sophisticated creation.
