We are officially less than a month away from the happiest time of the year and as that time of the year rolls around; The Post Up wanted to give you some ideas of what to get that Raptor-loving guy in your life...
1. Team Jersey - price: $109.99 - $139.99
There is nothing like giving your guy a chance to rep his favorite player. Whether they want to rock the jersey of one of our All-Stars or show some love to our young guys, a jersey is an easy pick-up that your guy will love. Now with the new NBA Connected jersey, the lucky recipient of this gift will be even closer to their favorite player. And don't forget, you can get any jersey from players past and present so perhaps a VC retro purple jersey may be his thing.
2. Frank and Oak - price: $54.50 - $429.00
This Montreal based company has partnered up with the NBA to bring a line of subtle NBA apparel that your fashion-forward fellow will love. Frank and Oak has been able to integrate symbols of Canada's team into every day apparel, allowing him to show his pride anywhere he goes. From drinks with friends, to casual Fridays at work and of course, sitting in the stands cheering the boys on, he'll be well dressed no matter what. Their pieces range from button down shirts, the iconic black-and-red flannel, and our personal favorite, the Raptors Varsity Jacket.
3. Guy's Night Out - price: varies
There is nothing like experiencing a live game, so why not give him the chance to do so this holiday season. Keep in mind that ticketmaster isn't your only option to buy tickets. Consider buying re-sell to help ease the price of seeing a winning team by visiting sites like Stub Hub and SeatGeek. Both sites are easy to navigate whether you're on a computer or buying tickets off your phone and both have a guarantee that you're buying authentic tickets with the option to choose your seats and view them before clicking submit.
4. Headwear - price: $14.99 - $45.99
We know that living in Canada means we have to be prepared for all sorts of seasons. From toques to fitted's, the Raptors have a variety of great options. We can be sure that there's something just right for him.
5. Socks - price: $13.34 - $24.02
Everyone needs socks so why not show your everyday pride through these essentials. Stance has some great options for every occasion, allowing your guy to show his love no matter where he goes. They have everything from performance socks, casual socks and even socks that he can wear to a wedding without anyone questioning his fashion choices.
6. Pop! by FunKo - price: $26.99
Out with those dated bobble heads and in with Pop! by FunKo. This Canadian exclusive DeMar DeRozan Pop! is a quirky gift for that fan that seems to already have everything-Raptor related. This gift does come with a warning: this Pop! may or may not start an obsession with Pop! characters - just sayin'.
7. Cufflinks - price: $69.50
Nothing shows maturity like wearing Toronto Raptors cuff links during those important board meetings or special life events. We believe that owning a pair of cuff links is almost like a right-of-passage into manhood. But if he's not 100% ready for such responsibility, giving him Raptor-themed cuff links may ease the process.
8. Warm-Up Sweaters - price: $184.99
If he really wants to be part of the team, then getting the team's official warm-up sweater is one way to do so. Not only does this sweater look great paired with some jeans, it actually performs well too. This dri-fit sweater was designed with ease of movement in mind.
9. Flask - price: $19.99 - $33.99
The Raptors have designed great containers for your beverage of choice, non-adult and adult alike. Glacier water bottles, travel tumblers, mason mugs, macho mugs (whatever that means), and coffee mugs are all available with the Raptors logo. Bottoms up!
10. Kyle Lowry Limited Edition Nighthawk Watch by Citizen - price: $650.00
Kyle Lowry has teamed up with Citizen to deliver a watch - limited edition. Though the price tag may be responsible for a heart attack, the watch is a TIMELESS (get it?) piece that any die-hard Raptor fan would cherish. The box also bears Kyle Lowry's signature which adds even more sentiment to this piece. Considering the price, we think Kyle should deliver it to you personally, but what do we know?
