Hockey is a popular game that provides a great workout. If the thrill of the ice has captured a child you know, there are many items available to give as gifts for any occasion -- birthdays, holidays or recognition for an outstanding season. Gift ideas for kids who play hockey are easy to find and personalize, as well.
Personalized Keepsake Ornament
A keepsake ornament isn't just for the Christmas tree; your hockey star can hang his personalized keepsake ornament in his room. Personalized ornaments come in all kinds of hockey shapes, including pucks, sticks and even figures. You can also get ornaments of hockey players wearing your child's favorite team jersey with his name on the back. This kind of ornament can even become a family keepsake.
Hockey Stadium Blanket
When your child spends all day on the ice protecting her goal, she may want to curl up in a stadium blanket at the end of the day. Made of soft fleece, these blankets come in many designs and colors. You can get a blanket in your child's favorite team or sayings embroidered across the center, such as "live, breathe, sleep hockey."
If you do not want to purchase a blanket, you can easily make a tie blanket featuring hockey-themed polar-fleece fabric. Cut two pieces of fleece 72 inches by 56 inches; your local fabric store can cut your fabric for you. Lay the two pieces of fabric on top of each other so they're even and cut strips around the border measuring 2 inches long by 1 inch wide. Tie the top fabric and bottom fabric together to create a blanket.
Personalized Hockey Pucks
For children who enjoy shooting goals, personalized hockey pucks are the gift to give. You can affix decals that have your child's name, picture or even encouraging phrases onto pucks. When the child shoots goals with his friends, he will always know which puck is his.
Mini sticks are designed to commemorate championships, birthdays, hockey milestones, or they can even pay tribute to your child's favorite hockey team. You can even have these sticks made to honor your child's hockey team. Not only are the mini sticks great for display purposes, but they can even be used for games of tabletop hockey. Mini sticks range are usually about 7 to 11 inches long.
