Top 5 Gifts Under $60 for U.S. Ski Team Fans

Yahoo Contributor Network

It is almost time for the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix, the Visa U.S. Grand Prix and the holiday gift giving season. Maybe you have a snowboarding or ski fan on your gift list that is anxiously awaiting all three events. If so, you may want to consider scooping up a few U.S. Ski and Snowboarding Team gifts. I found several items that you may want to consider.

Here they are:

1. Hoodie Sweatshirt

I found a great Nike USA Olympic Team Navy Blue Classic Full Zip Hoodie Sweatshirt online for $51. It's made from a cotton polyester blend that is soft to the touch and is designed to keep your sports fan warm. The distressed screen print graphics gave it a distinctly casual feel that will be perfect for an event-day party with friends.

2. Glassware

Speaking of a ski event day party, I also found a USA Olympic Team 15-ounce Crest Glass Mug online for $10, a 16-ounce Crest Pint Glass for $6 and a 19.25-ounce Pilsner Glass for $12 that you might want to add to your friend's party ware collection.

3. Collectable Pins

If you are looking for a USA Ski Team gift that is priced under $10 you might want to consider buying a team logo pin. You can pick up a 1" x 1" pin online for $8 or a vintage 2010 Winter Olympics skiing or snowboard pin for $6 each.

4. Home Decor

A USA Olympic Team 17" x 40" Premium Felt Pennant, a USA Olympic Team 27" x 37" Vertical Banner and a USA Olympic Team 20" x 30" Red On-Field Welcome Mat would also make a nice combination gift for the most devote fans on your list. They can use all of them to really dress up the entrance to their home. I found all three online for less than $26 each.

5. Sweatpants and Shirt

A pair of Nike USA Olympic Team Ash On-Field Mark Classic Fleece Sweatpants would also make a great gift. It is made from a cotton polyester blend and features both an elastic and drawstring waistband for a more comfortable fit. You can find it online for $41. You might want to throw in a Nike USA Olympic Team Ash Classic Long Sleeve T-Shirt as well. I loved the shirt's roomy fit. It makes it perfect to wear either around the house by itself or outside over a base layer. It will set you back an additional $29.

My family enjoys watching and participating in winter sports. I also have a history of buying winter sports related gifts.
