    Nike is like an athlete's heaven.

    It simply has everything you could possibly want and then some, making just about anything you could buy from the store a good gift.

    This is one of the best deals on this list. For just $39.00 (or 70 cents per issue) you can buy a one-year subscription to the best sports magazine out there, saving over $240.

    Sports Illustrated is always one of the top gifts for sports fans, and it has everything you could want.

    You can but this gift through Amazon.com here.

24. NFL Team Toasters

    What's better than a nice toasted sandwich while you watch your favorite NFL team kick the crap out of its rival? When that bread has your team's logo on it.

    Never settle for normal toast again.

    You can buy these toasters on Amazon.com here.

23. Flag Football Set

5 of 27

    Franklin has a five-on-five flag football set that is perfect for younger kids or adults who aren't quite willing to play tackle.

    For just $100 you can buy the only watch in the world that keeps you up to date with both the time and your favorite sports team.

    This watch displays the next game for your favorite team, so you'll always know when you can see your guys in action.

21. Fake Newspaper Page

7 of 27

    One of the cooler gifts from SportsGifts.com is a fake newspaper page. You can buy MVP pages, champion pages and more for many different sports for the aspiring pro athlete on your list.

    You can buy these pages for just $24.95, and you can bet that your future athlete will frame it.

20. Fantasy Football Guidebook

8 of 27

    If you have a fantasy football player on your list who just couldn't get it done this year, or a prospective player for the future, this book is a must-buy.

    This can help you win a championship or be a great gag gift to rub it in your opponents' faces. I'm considering buying some of these and sending them to a few loveable losers in my leagues.

    You can buy the guidebook from Amazon.com here.

19. Team Mugs

9 of 27

    Just sit back, relax and watch your favorite team while drinking a beer with the team's logo on it.

17. Sports Video Games

    Whether it's Madden 13, FIFA 13 or any other sports game, video games are always a great gift during the winter.

16. Team Countdown Clock

12 of 27

    Counting down the the start of the baseball season? Now you can know how much longer you have to wait down to the second.

    These clocks have a personalized countdown to the first pitch with any team and are less than $70.

    You can buy one of these awesome clocks from SportsGifts.com here.

15. Sponsor a Player Page

13 of 27

    This is another great gift that I didn't even know existed.

    Sports-Reference.com allows fans to sponsor player pages with custom messages. While most popular athletes are taken or very expensive, if you have a fan with a favorite player that is off the beaten track this may be the perfect gift for you.

    I'm thinking about buying a message for my friend who is obsessed with Ty Lawson for just $35.

    You can buy player pages from Sports-Reference.com here.

14. Pitching Machine

14 of 27

    For the serious baseball player on your list, you can buy a pitching machine for just $139.95.

    There are cheaper options, but to be the best you have to buy the best.

    You can buy one of many pitching machines from SportsGifts.com here.

13. Team Snack Helmet

15 of 27

    This is one of my favorite gifts on this list. For just $45 you can buy a helmet of your favorite team that has three separate compartments for different snacks.

    Couple this with an NFL team mug that ranked No. 19 on this list and maybe a sandwich from the NFL toasters that ranked No. 24 and you have yourself the perfect gameday snacks.

    You can buy this helmet from SportsGifts.com here.

12. Stadium Replicas

16 of 27

    For anywhere from $45 to $84 you can buy a replica of some of the most famous stadiums in baseball history.

    This gift is perfect for the die-hard fan of one of these teams.

11. Fatheads

17 of 27

    Fatheads have become a staple for true sports fans, and they really do make a room stand out.

    There are all kinds of holiday discounts on these bad boys too, so you could even get two or three for the people on your list and still buy one for yourself.

    You can buy these one-of-a-kind gifts from Fathead.com here.

10. Youth Baseball Set

18 of 27

    This one makes the Top 10 on this list simply because it is such an amazing deal.

    You can buy a youth bat, glove, ball and bag for just $44.25, and it's the perfect gift for the young baseball player in your life.

    You can buy this special deal from SportsGifts.com here.

9. Team Tailgating Equipment

19 of 27

    Do you have to buy a present for a serious tailgater? Look no further.

    Whether it's something that they don't have or even just a replacement for the oldest part of their tailgating repertoire, they're bound to love it.

    You can buy tailgating accessories for just about any team from SportsGifts.com here.

8. Golf Ball Finding Glasses

20 of 27

    This gift is sick.

    These glasses will help any golfer find his or her ball after they've hit it, saving hours of time when you add it all up.

    For just $25.99 you can buy these glasses at SportsGifts.com here.

7. Team Jerseys

21 of 27

    Have someone on your list who needs a new jersey instead of just changing the one they have? Everybody does.

    Jerseys are a staple around the holidays, and you can never go wrong with one. Even a LeBron James jersey from when he was on the Cleveland Cavaliers is worth it since it can be thrown on the fire.

    You can buy team jerseys at FansEdge.com here.

6. College Tailgating Tent

22 of 27

    Every college kid loves a good tailgate, and these tents help make any party better.

    If there is a way to use it, you can bet a college student will figure it out.

    You can buy these awesome tailgating tents on SportsGifts.com here.

5. DIRECTV Sports Packages

23 of 27

    Every fan wants a one-year subscription to watch every game of their favorite sport.

    If you're an out-of-town fan who misses your favorite team or just a crazy sports fanatic who wants to watch literally every single game, this gift is perfect for you.

    You can buy these packages at Directv.com here.

4. Any Sports Collectible or Memorabilia

24 of 27

    Every fan loves to be part of history, and buying them something to remember that history is always a great idea for the holidays.

    This is a pretty cool gift for any sports fan.

    I know a few people with authentic stadium seats, and they are always great ones to sit in while watching the game.

    You can buy these awesome seats from AuthenticStadiumSeats.com here.

2. NASCAR Racing Experience

26 of 27

    I'm not even a big NASCAR fan, but there is no one in this world who doesn't want to race around the track at about 200 mph.

    It's speeding, but it's legal. Tell me that isn't awesome.

    You can get this once-on-a-lifetime experience from NASCARRacingExperience.com here.

1. Tickets to the Game

27 of 27

    It's one of the oldest presents for sports fans in the book, but it's still one of the best.
