I’ve come to the realization that my life pretty much revolves around sports. With four kids on multiple teams I am guaranteed to have a game or practice everyday. This t-shirt is my reality. But I love that my kids are getting their exercise, socializing, and even learning about teamwork and sportsmanship. As an athlete growing up I have continued to make time for exercise. I realize how important it is to move our bodies as a stress release and for overall health. Every year my kids (and myself included) ask for some sports related gift. And from someone whose life revolves around sports I think I have a pretty good idea about the best sports gifts. I’ve compiled a comprehensive list of the best gear for lots of different sports and activities for kids and for adults. Here are my top places I shop for equipment, gear and more!
The NFL Shop //For Jerseys & Hats
Dick’s Sporting Goods // For all my kids gear – bats, gloves, shoes
Amazon // For all the odds and ends that I need quick!
Nordstrom Fan Shop // Fan Gear for Adults & Kids
Kid’s Sports Gear
Every year, without fail, one of my kids asks for a bat (and wow are they expensive!). With said bat, comes lots more requests for gear: Like cleats, helmets, sliding gloves (??), goalie gloves, receiver gloves, etc, etc. Here are a few favorites for a plethora of different sports…

Adult Workout Equipment and Gear
I try to make time everyday for a quick run, strength training or yoga. The more consistently I workout the better I feel – which sometimes means taking a few laps around the baseball diamond during a game. Here are a few must-haves that I use on the regular…
I spend a lot of time on the sidelines and have nailed down the layers to bring, the best collapsible chairs and always, always, always have extra snacks!
Ski and Snow Gear
My kids are at the age where they can actually enjoy a few runs down the mountain. But with that comes lots of cold weather gear. While we usually rent skis and boots a great pair of ski pants, gloves and goggles are necessary! Lots more favorites for the whole family below…
Racquet Sports Gear
Recently my family has gotten more into racquet sports – most likely due to my Mom’s love of pickleball! It is the most fun and my kids love to play too. With that comes playing paddle in the winter and tennis in the summer. The best part about these sports (IMO) is the outfits! Who doesn’t love an adorable tennis dress! Check out some great gear to get you started…
