Stuffing, cranberry sauce, hot turkey, Thanksgiving is over…well maybe not leftovers. Black Friday is upon us and so begins holiday shopping. This year check out online stores for all your hockey fan shopping needs and avoid the hassle of spending a long day in lines with grumpy shoppers. Here are a few things worth taking a look at this holiday season:
What would any hockey fan love more than tickets to see their favorite NHL team live, in person, with a great view of the action? Okay, maybe a seat next to hockey super-fan Taylor Swift at the game, but regardless, hockey tickets are a great idea for any hockey enthusiast on your list this season. Plus, with the economic downturn, great seats are still available for great prices. For tickets, check out websites like StubHub.com, which specialize in second-hand tickets sold from ticket owner to ticket owner. I’ve used this website before and had only one problem which resulted in an immediate refund of my money. While StubHub does have a convenience fee, it is nowhere near the price of Ticketmaster’s surcharges. Plus, since owners set their own ticket prices, you can sometimes luck out and get great prices on tickets that are below face value. I don’t ask questions, I just enjoy the game.
Price: Tickets as low as $10
Newborn Short Sleeve Creeper
Got a little hockey fan in the making to buy for? This creeper is a perfect little gift for the perfect little fan. It’s made out of soft cotton and has a 3-button closure designed for easy dressing and diaper changing. Do they make an adult version? I know I certainly crap myself whenever I see Datsyuk or Zetterberg dingle dangle and score.
