Five Gifts for the NFL Tailgater
Everyone knows a dedicated tailgater, a die-hard fan who wakes up earlier on the weekend than he does on weekdays so they can be the first Jeep, truck or minivan at the stadium. Hours before the game they begin grilling, body painting, playing games and drinking. To help make the remaining tailgating parties for the 2015-2016 NFL season memorable, here are a number of unique gifts for every tailgater.
When a tailgater sets up base camp, they want fellow tailgaters to know who’s side they are on and they want to be easily identifiable so friends can find their car and join the party and standing at over 14′ the telescoping flag pole and stand makes this possible. Another bonus, leave the flag up for the duration of the game so you can easily locate your car once you exit the stadium. Available at americantailgater.com, $77.90
If your tailgater lives in a colder climate, the Drinking Jacket is a must-have layer to add to their winter wardrobe. This piece is great for men and women because it has several pockets for storing one’s game necessities. The jacket has fold-away sleeve cuffs with slip-resistant grips that double as drink holders, a neoprene beer koozie pocket, flask pockets, sunglass holder and ID/money pocket on the sleeve. Available at thedrinkingjacket.com, $85.
The Tailgating Tavern is a great tailgating accessory. It sets up and breaks down in seconds and allows for the storage and easy access of all the tailgating necessities like drinks, food, cups, napkins and anything else the rowdy group may need. Available at tailgaterzgear.com, $89.98
Of course, every tailgater has to have a great place to cook. Enter the Coleman RoadTrip LXE 10,000 BTU propane grill. It’s got 285 square inches of cooking surface, removable grill/griddle/stovetop cooking surfaces, and features matchless lighting. It evens folds down into a compact size, for easy storage in the back of the Jeep when it’s game time. Available at most shopping centers, $139.
One of the best parts about tailgating is mingling with fellow fans. Though a bit more expensive than anything else of the list, the motorized cooler scooter is worth it because it can be used at events year-round. Tailgaters can cruise the lot to ensure they never run out of food or drinks or that their stash doesn’t get stolen. Available at americantailgater.com, $549.
