The Best Soccer Gifts for Kids to Make & Give
Soccer has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I started playing in a recreational soccer league in first grade, and a year later my dad got wrangled into being our new coach.
For the rest of my school years, Dad coached our team — Saturdays (game days) were our special day. Those are memories I definitely treasure.
These days my dad and I spend our time in the stands, cheering on our hometown soccer team along with my siblings. We love to go see live soccer together — now that my kids are getting older, I think it is something they will enjoy too!
The girls love to play soccer and we regularly hit our local park to kick around together. It’s great exercise and bonding time!
With Father’s Day around the corner, I wanted to share some of my favorite soccer presents that kids can make or gift to their hero. If your dad or husband is a big soccer fan, then he’s sure to treasure these gifts!
We created this list with Father’s Day in mind, but these ideas would also make perfect soccer coach gifts! Don’t forget about soccer mom gifts too!
