Whether the object of your affection is a hockey player or an avid fan of the game, you are in luck come Valentine’s Day. Forget the heart patterned boxer shorts or novelty gifts and focus on gifts in the hockey theme.
Say 'I love you' by giving him a team jersey embroidered with either his name or the name of his favorite player. Other team apparel gift ideas for the fan include scarves, jackets, hats and t-shirts. Pick up iron on clothing labels from the craft store, print a love message and add your own label to the item.
Hockey Game Tickets
Purchase tickets to a hockey game scheduled on or around Valentine’s Day. Place them inside a Valentine’s card and arrange for a special evening together. Take a limo to the game or a pre-game romantic walk around the city. Chances are there is a restaurant or pub close to the hockey venue that is well known for displaying team memorabilia or being frequented by players. Make a reservation to head there post game for dinner and drinks.
For the hockey player, consider a brand new hockey stick engraved with a special Valentine message. Perhaps he could use a new pair of hockey skates which could be given along with a personalized carrying case or heart-shaped lace charm.
Hockey Channel Package
Check out the hockey packages available through your cable or satellite provider. Perhaps his favorite team is not aired locally or there are special events he would like to watch throughout the season. Choose a package that allows him to never miss a game or provides him with extra coverage, highlights or exclusive viewing privileges. Set a romantic scene in the living room and surprise him on Valentine’s Day by clicking on the television and tuning it to his new favorite channel.
Stick with the tradition of chocolate on Valentine’s Day, but add a hockey twist. Purchase chocolate hockey pucks, available online in several team logos. Give these as the perfect gift for your hockey fan Valentine, or along with another of the hockey Valentine gift ideas.
