It’s that time of year when we all turn into shopping-crazed maniacs looking for that perfect gift for the loved ones in our lives. To find that one-in-a-million Flyers gift that everyone will love look no further than the creators on Etsy. I went through and found various amazing hand-made Flyers gifts that will make anyone smile on Christmas morning and wanted to share them with the Brotherly Puck readers. All links are included if you’re interested in certain items.
It’s the Christmas season and soon pine trees will be standing tall in living rooms all over the Philadelphia area, so why not decorate your tree with a little Philly love? Jawnaments on Etsy can help! Handcrafted ornaments of all your local favorites including Wawa, Gritty, scrapple, Reading Terminal, and so much more! Jawnaments are 15 bucks a piece, so it’s easy to go all out on your tree, or just a few standout pieces that will define your Christmas in Philly.
Everyone loves bobbleheads, right? Why not own a Gritty bobblehead! BobbleBoss on Etsy has a wide array of different NHL bobbleheads including various mascots across the league, but also a decent selection of Gritty bobbleheads including a pencil holder, valentines day Gritty, Gritty on a wrecking ball, and more! These handcrafted bobbleheads will make awesome stocking stuffers for all the fans of the delinquent muppet.
One can argue that Gritty himself is a work of art, but when he gets thrown into funny situations with his partner in crime the Philly Phanatic, the art quality goes up tremendously. MichaelsComics features a dozen different hand-drawn scenarios where Gritty and the Phanatic are together. From the Phanatic painting Gritty like one of his french jawns to the duo recreating the famous “Say Anything” scene, there’s something here for the Flyers and movie lover in your life.
Rustic Flyers Art
If you’re looking for a way to show your fandom for the Flyers in an artsy, rustic way, look no further than RichardPaulStudios. Richard creates wooden sports logos… Each 18×26 inch work of art goes for around $100 dollars, but the craftsmanship that goes into these definitely justifies the cost, and don’t worry, he’s got all four of the Philly sports teams available too!
Do the Flyers make you drink? You’re going to need some place to put that cold one when you go to tweet about how much your least favorite player sucks. Look no further than TaggedCustomDesign’s custom engraved maple plywood coasters. Starting at just $4.59 per coaster, or the full set for $133, you can have an awesome NHL-themed place to place your beverage that will serve as a fun little decorative piece in the meantime. He also does MLB, NBA, and Premier League coasters as well as select full-size team logos!
Gritty Flask Holder
Speaking of cold ones, why not get an awesome decorative Gritty flask holder. These hand-made leather pouches come with a shiny new flask, something that, let’s be honest, you can never have too many of, and has an option for various different leather colors. This shop also features various Philadelphia-themed flask holders including the Eagles, Phillies, and one featuring cheesesteaks.
PhillyHQ is an awesome page on Etsy that features over one hundred different shirts, sweatshirts, mugs, hats, and more. The page features many Gritty themed items, but also various designs from all your favorite Philly sports teams. Whatever your taste, there’s something for everyone at the headquarters for all things Philadelphia.
Did someone you know just have baby and you want to deck their little one out in Flyers gear? Well PlumLovinCrochet can help! You can get little hats, diaper covers, and booties shaped like skates to keep your baby out of the cold. All items are hand-crocheted and come in various different hockey teams and even have NFL and MLB apparel with little caps and Chuck Taylors.
