A List of Homegating Essentials For the 2016 NFL Season
2016 NFL Preseason
The regular season is getting closer and closer for NFL fans, so there’s no time like right now to start stocking-up on all of the essentials for every gameday from here on in. The products on today’s top ten list should all be delivered by kick-off on September 8, giving you and yours everything you need to tailgate (or couchgate) in style. No football watching party is complete with chips and dip (or beer cheese if you’re in Green Bay), so make sure you snag one of these affordable (and adorable!) trays to stash in your kitchen.
This spatula has everything you could possibly need for gameday (by everything, I mean it flips burgers and opens beers). I know I can’t wait to order one for my house. 3.
Kansas City Chiefs Grilling BBQ Apron
No NFL gameday would be complete without grilling out, but getting barbeque sauce (even of the Kansas City ilk) on your $250 jersey just won’t do. Keep your gear safe with one of these affordable grilling aprons.
There’s nothing wrong with displaying your love of the NFL all over your house. This blanket is sure to keep you warm during every TNF, MNF, and SNF for years to come...that’s a whole lot of football, folks.
NFL Shield Beverage Napkins
My mama taught me that no occasion is too small for themed, well, everything. These NFL shield napkins are sure to be the ideal addition to your gameday tablescapes all season long. Plus, they’re cheap, so you can stock-up without blowing your budget. 6.
Philadelphia Eagles Official NFL Banner Flag
No fan cave is complete without a couple of team-branded banners. I featured the Eagles, but they’re available for all 32 teams.
Seattle Seahawks Official NFL Baby Bib All Pro Style
I’m due in about a month, so I’ve got babies on the brain (you’ll have to forgive me early in the season). You can’t go wrong, though, with some gear for the youngest fans in your life, especially if they’re going to be hanging out with you on Sundays. A baby’s first football season is a big dea, people.
NFL Buffalo Bills Navy Neoprene Bottle Koozie
I’ve developed something of a reputation as the “Koozie Queen” among my friends and family. I have two in my purse, more in my car, and a whole drawer full at home. All this to say that, in my world, no list of essential NFL products would be complete without a bottle koozie. Buffalo is featured for obvious reasons...nobody likes to lose fingers to frostbite while tailgating.
Some years, you just need a new jersey for your collection, especially if your team drafts well. Not an issue Colts fans have had the past few years, but you can’t win ‘em all. This season’s top-selling rookie is featured here, but you should, of course, support your own crop of draft picks if you’re not a fan of America’s (*former*) Team.
I don’t know about you, but I go to a lot of away games. In the cold. Outdoors. Wandering around pre-game trying to find Starbucks. This would eliminate a lot of problems. Plus, it’s monogrammed. Pretty sure I’m going to order one right this second.
