The Definitive Finish Line Holiday Gift Guide

Share

With the holiday season right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about gift ideas for the athletes and shoe connoisseurs in your life. With so many sneakers and athleisure gift ideas to choose from, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by all of your options. 

To help, we’ve curated this holiday gift guide to get you started, featuring everything you need to know about the top styles, brands and must-haves to stay warm and fashion-forward this winter, including winter boots, cozy styles, unique stocking stuffers and, of course, some of the best basketball shoes available.

Shop our cozy styles

With winter weather approaching and many of us working from home this holiday season, cozy styles are a must. Our sporty athleisure collection offers kick-back comfort without sacrificing style.

Choose from trendy loungewear like a matching tracksuit set or a plush fleece, which are ideal for both running errands or relaxing at home. Or, if you really want to bring joy this holiday season, there’s truly nothing better than giving someone a new pair of cozy slippers — perfect for staying snug on chilly winter mornings.

Other cozy gift ideas include joggers for lounging around the house or leggings for layering under some comfy sweats or for wearing on their own while tucked into your favorite pair of boots. Or, shop our selection of athletic apparel, hoodies, sweatshirts and jackets — like the cozy and popular Jordan Jumpman Air Puffer Jacket.

Alternatively, if you’re looking to mix comfort and functionality in your holiday gifts, consider a pair of extra-plush, fuzzy-lined Crocs. These funky shoes have the classic Crocs shape and design, but they feature fluffy interiors for added warmth in the cold winter months. Plus, they pair perfectly with Crocs Jibbitz charms to add a bit of personalized flair.

Get a new pair of boots

By the time the holidays roll around, winter’s just getting started, so there’s no gift more fitting than a new pair of boots. In fact, the perfect pair of winter boots blend style and comfort without sacrificing warmth and include waterproofing for protection in wintery conditions. 

As far as gifts go, you can go super-classic and select a pair of Timberlands, which are a fan-favorite when it comes to looking good and feeling good. High-top, fully seam-sealed leather boots like Timberlands scream durability and offer ample traction on snowy sidewalks, making them a solid choice for you or your friends and family.

Need more ideas? Classic sneaker brands like Nike, The North Face, and even Converse have brought hot new boots onto the market in recent years, providing you with plenty of options to choose from when it comes to keeping your loved ones well-outfitted to handle the snow and cold this winter.

Snag some stocking stuffers

Need something small but meaningful that shows you care? A stocking stuffer is a fantastic option if you’re looking for a useful gift that doesn’t break the bank. 

The best part about stocking stuffers is the sheer number of great gifts you have to choose from. You can put style at the forefront of your shopping criteria and opt for a new hat from a favorite sports team or a fresh cap from adidas that’s versatile enough for any occasion. Or choose a cozy new beanie from brands like Jordan Jumpman, Nike, adidas or The North Face.

For the more active folks among us, great gift ideas for athletes include a sweat-wicking headband or a sports water bottle, which are both thoughtful touches that are super useful at the gym.

Alternatively, for your adventurous friends and family, you can try a more functional gift and choose something like a hip pack or even a shoebox bag to couple with a brand new pair of kicks. When it comes to shopping for your favorite sneakerhead, consider shoe cleaning products, insoles, fresheners and even crease preventers to ensure their sneakers can stay as fly as can be throughout the new year.

If you’re still struggling to think of the perfect little something for your friends and family, keep it simple and opt for something we all need, like face masks, gloves and socks.

Buy a new pair of basketball shoes

Here at Finish Line, there’s no way we could end our athleisure and fitness holiday gift guide without including some basketball shoes.

When shopping for your favorite athlete, a new pair of basketball shoes is hard to beat. With fresh styles hitting stores every day from top brands like Nike, Under Armour, Jordan and adidas, upgrading to a new set of shoes can provide a little bit of flair to help your favorite basketball player perform on the court this holiday season.

For the more fashion-minded among us, a new pair of kicks is your go-to for helping your friends and family up their shoe game as we head into 2021. Boost your loved one’s street cred with Nike Air Force 1s, Air Jordan Retros or signature styles from top players like Kevin Durant and four-time NBA champion LeBron James.

Need a gift for your future superstar? A set of basketball shoes is a solid choice for the kiddos, too. Choose from a whole slew of different colorways, styles and signature designs to get your little basketball fan excited about staying active and inspired on the court or in the gym.
