Struggling with what to buy for your favorite WNBA fan? Looking for a little treat for your own stocking? Here are my gift recommendations for any WNBA fan this holiday season.
The Basics For Any Fan
The Orange Hoodie
A Face Mask to Support His Favorite Team
Support the WNBA and keep your loved one safe from a global pandemic. Win-win.
New York Liberty, Black Lives Matter replica shooting shirt
All proceeds benefit the Breonna Taylor Foundation so there is absolutely no reason not to purchase it, even for non-Liberty fans. Unfortunately, the Black Trans Lives version sported by Zahui B. below is sold out.
Bet on Women T-Shirt
Designed by the WNBPA for the 2019 season, this shirt has the perfect message and is easy to style by your WNBA fashionista.
Merch From Her Favorite Athlete
BreakingT x WNBPA has shirts and hoodies for every single WNBA player in the 2020 season, reflecting the season’s dedication to social justice (the players’ name and number is on the back).
Their Fave’s Rookie Card
Speaking of trading cards, why not Arike’s trading card shirt? Remind them to be their own hero like Arike, who wore this outfit after hitting a game-winner.
WSlam, Sue Bird Cover Tee
Another icon, this one is pretty self-explanatory.
Breanna Stewart, Rings hoodie
Technically, there should now be one more ring on here, but tell zim it’s on Stewie’s right thumb.
Pursenally Yours by Eva, A’ja Autograph Tee
An effortlessly chic tee celebrating the reigning M’VP.
Tea With A & Phee, Tea Time Tee
Speaking of, any true A’ja fan will want the offical tee of A’ja Wilson’s and Napheesa Collier’s podcast, which gave us the gifts this year of A’ja calling Kendrick Perkins’ 3.4 ppg a “good GPA” and Phee discussing the proper shimmy with Steph Curry.
Satou Sabally, Masterpiece Tee
Her store also has a really cool understated unicorn tee, but if you’re going to go unicorn, go FULL UNICORN, in my opinion.
Brittney Griner, Rise Tank
For the fitness junkie, or anyone who just loves to see BG dunk.
Deldon designs, Rainbow basketball hoop art
The grown-up version of the nerf basketball hoop on the back of your bedroom door. The MVP is also a woodworker. It’s unreasonable.
For Their Love of All Women’s Sports
A NWSL or USWNT Jersey
Let’s be honest, a soccer kit is way more wearable than a WNBA jersey, and the USWNT has jerseys available for every player (what a concept!) I will leave recommendations on which NWSL team to support to my fellow contributors but I will say as a biased Chicagoan that the Red Stars kits are incredible:
I have been assured by my Canadian colleague that hockey jerseys are incredibly wearable. Have your WNBA fan check out Kacey’s guide on the NWHL to pick a team, and then get a jersey to be ready for the start of the season in January. Personally, I have chosen the Metropolitan Riveters based on the logo alone:
