Everyone needs a Christmas Jumper and every Harlequins fan needs THIS Rugby Christmas Jumper.

Supporting the British and Irish Lions could be a chilly experience at some of the high-altitude locations on next years tour. Stay warm with this awesome padded jacket.

I love the simplicity of this design from Canterbury. I expect this will be very popular in South Africa next year.

Rugby Christmas Kit gift ideas

This has to be the No.1 gift for any Rugby fan in the UK this Christmas. We’re all hoping The Lions will be headed to South Africa next year and this shirt is essential clobber for any Lions fan.

It’s been a long time since base layers were sneered at. Keep your pins warm and functioning well during the winter months with these smashers from CCC. 

All players love new boots and this sleek number from Adidas are highly discounted right now.

Rugby Christmas Training gift ideas

Missing your rugby over the festive period? Want to train but the whole family is too full of turkey and Christmas Pud? Get the Solo Skills ball to keep your passing and catching skills sharp.

I’m not sure this is a serious training aid, but it could be hilarious after a few glasses of wine on Xmas day.

Please drink (and tackle the Big Hit Tackle Buddy) responsibly.

With the muddy grounds around at the moment, every player needs the Boot Buddy to get their boots clean and fresh for the next match or training session.

Rugby Christmas Book gift ideas

Created by The Amateur Rugby Podcast for the serious rugby player in your life.

James Haskell’s book claims to be “The funniest sports biography you’ll read in 2020” – and early reviews suggest this may well be correct.

Joe Marler is one of the most fascinating characters in rugby. This is his hilarious, unfiltered truth about being a rugby player – from the horsey’s mouth.

For the complete rugby bore. You know who you are. 🙂

The rise of the Exeter Chiefs from the lower leagues to a League and European double is the stuff of fairytales. All done with a traditional and strong culture.

This book inspired an episode of Hot Topics with Chris Morgan. Seán O’Brien tells the remarkable and unlikely story of his rise to the highest levels of world rugby, and of a decade of success with Leinster, Ireland and the British and Irish Lions.

Dylan Hartley, one of England’s most successful captains, tells a story of hard men and harsh truths. From the sixteen-year-old Kiwi who travelled alone to England, to the winner of ninety-seven international caps, he describes with brutal clarity the sport’s increasing demand on players and the toll it takes on their mental health, as well as the untimely injury that shattered his dreams of leading England in the 2019 World Cup.

And how could I not include – Ben Mercer from Episode 14 authors this great book about life on the edge of Professional Rugby.

Soothe those aching muscles with the rugby players’ bubble bath.

Rugby Christmas Stocking Filler gift ideas

Another classic Christmas gift – the Annual Calendar. This one is perfect for England Rugby fans. Other nationalities are available.

If you need more time with a ball in your hands than just training and match days, then get this rugby ball pencil case. For the true rugby enthusiast!

Classy, stylish; carry your cash to the bar in one of these leather rugby wallets.

With rugby being a winter sport (for now), every rugby supporter needs a hip flask to carry a wee dram to keep the cold at bay.

Come on… Who doesn’t love a wooden puzzle on Christmas Day? And it’ll look nice on your mantle-piece all year round too.

Top Trumps. Rugby. I need say no more…

The essential rugby phone accessory!
