Are you enjoying the World Cup? I have to say that I am absolutely loving it – there have been so many exciting matches, unexpected results, fighting performances from some of the underdogs, and a couple of really great performances from an England team with a brilliant Harry Kane turning on the magic and the goals.
For my boy Joe Luca, this is the first World Cup that he will truly remember (although he did decide to support Brazil four years ago after asking me who I thought would win – got that wrong as it turned out.). Because of this, we have been picking up mementos and memorabilia as keepsakes including a wall chart that we have been filling in, Panini stickers that are actually very difficult to find at the moment, and lots of souvenir books.
But if you are looking for something more special as a souvenir, take a look at these ideas.
A personalised World Cup newspaper book
A present that is just perfect for World Cup fans old and new is a personalised World Cup newspaper book that is full of news stories and cuttings of World Cups tournaments of the near and more distant past.The book, from Historic Newspapers is bound in luxury leather and gold embossed cover, and has a frontispiece that can be personalised with a message to a loved one.
This book is just stunning, with both colour and black and white sections, and really is the ultimate present for someone who loves football in general and the World Cup in particular.
Art of Football World Cup range
Art of Football is one of my favourite sports ranges due to their quirky mixture of art and sport. For the World Cup they have produced a range of t-shirts and prints for both adults and children that are unique, different from any other memorabilia.
My key pick has to be ‘The Captain’ tee or sweatshirt featuring the one and only Harry Kane. He’s been so brilliant so far and is favourite for the Golden Boot, so this is something that you could really wear with pride, especially if he ends up lifting the cup.
Red Bubble Merchandise
Red Bubble is a fantastic site for finding a wealth of football and World Cup related goods, many from individual designers and artisans. This year they have products that not only celebrate Russia 2018, but also previous World Cups too.
You can search their site for ‘World Cup’ or look for a specific player or team. I personally love their tote bags, and have already purchased a Giroud bag featuring my number one footballer.
Well Worth a Look.
