With the dark evenings drawing in, we turn our attention away from sunbathing by the pool with a crisp pint of beer. Christmas is looming. What could you possibly buy for your football-fanatical loved one?
Whether you're buying for your child or a friend, we've compiled a list of our top 5 Christmas presents to give you one less thing to worry about in the busy period.
Football boots are a safe bet. In reality, if you're not clued up on the science behind football boots, it can be pretty complex. Thankfully, we've got you covered with this handy breakdown.
Firstly, what type of ground does your chosen recipient play on? Grassy fields? Go for Firm Ground (FG). Astro Turf 3G pitch? Go for Artificial Grass (AG). Indoors? You've guessed it, Indoor Court (IC). You're already a budding Sports Scientist.
Club - Entry Level (£0 to £75)
Academy - Mid Tier (£75 to £125)
Pro - Premium Quality (£125 to £200)
Elite - Professional Level (£200+)
Enough Sports Science, tell me what to buy.
The Nike Mercurial Vapor Academy is a fan favourite boot and a strong, safe bet if you're unsure what to buy. While it sits in the Academy range, the boot sports good overall quality and will provide longevity to the user. What's more, if you sign up to become a Nike Member, you can customise the boot and design a unique pair for your loved one.
Looking for something a little more expensive? Try the Nike Phantom GX Pro. These boots come in 3 separate colourways. Each unique boot is designed for the user to command the pitch from any position. The boots in the Pro range offer a premium feel and will make your loved one stand out in the changing room.

From the pressure of choosing between 100 different types of football boots to something a little simpler: Goalposts.
Admittedly, this gift is more targeted towards younger recipients. Ask any football fan, and they can recount countless stories as a child playing football in their back garden with a set of goalposts their parents had bought.
Nothing screams Christmas more than sending your parents outside at 8 AM on Christmas morning to build the goalposts you've opened; why should this year be any different?
