?Getting your friends and family football-related presents can be a minefield. Even after you know their t-shirt size with a few discreet questions, what do you do then?
Do they want a classic shirt? Or a modern one? And if they want a modern one, what name do I get on the back? Maybe some football-themed boxer shorts? No, don’t be silly, nobody wants football-themed boxer shorts.
So if you’ve got a friend who’s a Barcelona fan with a birthday just around the corner, here are a few bits and pieces which will get you in their good books with ease.
1997 Cup Winners’ Cup Replica
It’s one of Barcelona’s most eye-catching kits, but this one’s got a wonderful backstory which has helped to immortalise it as one of their all-time best.
Meeting defending champions Paris Saint-Germain in the Cup Winners’ Cup final in 1997, this was
Available from Pro:Dire?ct for £35.00.
Nike Pro FC Barcelona Hat?
If a new retro kit isn’t your thing, let’s keep it simple with a swish baseball cap.
There are plenty of different design which you’ll be able to find online, but Nike’s simple yet striking design is by far the best you’ll find.
Available from Nike? for £19.47.
FC Barcelona Strike Football
So you’re not wanting any sort of apparel?
Then how about a high-quality football that’s made in Barcelona colours. On one side is the club’s famous badge and there’s a Catalan flag on the other.
Available from Nik?e for £24.95.
FC Barcelona Beanie
Even at its worst, Barcelona rarely gets cold enough to warrant any kind of thermal headgear, but a
Available from N?ike for £21.95.
1982 Away Shirt Replica
When it was released, Barcelona’s away kit for 2019/20 made quite the impact.
But rather than getting the latest and greatest instalment, you could get a replica of their away shirt from 1982 – a design which was the inspiration for this season’s release.
You can’t really go wrong with a retro shirt, can you?
Available from Am?azon for £30.00.
Nike Dri-FIT FC Barcelona Strike Drill Top
The perfect gift for any Barcelona fan who loves to keep themselves active, Nike’s Strike Drill Top is a must-have.
It’s not overtly flashy like so much sportswear that’s already out there and what’s better is it’s even got the Barcelona badge so you can still rep the club no matter what you’re doing.
Available from Ni?ke for £59.95.
FC Barcelona 19/20 Dry Primeknit Crew
If sportswear is what you want but you’d prefer to stand out a little bit more, this one could be perfect.
Very similar to the Strike Drill Top above, Nike’s Primeknit Crew has all the same features but with a few added extras too.
Even with a brighter colour scheme, this long sleeve shirt isn’t being overly loud just for the sake of it and it’s probably one of the best looking bits of modern Barcelona kit you can pick up.
Available from Pro:Di?rect for £40.00.
The football and football debate is never going to end across both sides of the Atlantic, but you can actually combine both with this super comfy, Barcelona-themed NFL jersey.
Hope you like Philippe Coutinho though. As well as having the now Bayern Munich player’s number on the front of the shirt, it’s also got his name on the back.
Available from Pro:Dir?ect for £65.00.
FC Barcelona Lanyard
No more room in your wardrobe for new shirts?
Then the cheapest and arguably most collectable route you should go down is getting a new lanyard.
They’re certainly not for everyone, but collecting club-specific lanyards can be a great way to keep track of all the new stadiums you visit.
Available from Ama?zon.
Mini Retro Heritage Ball
It’s perhaps one of the nicest collectables that you can get from any club in the world, this vintage ball is going to look perfect on anyone’s desk.
It’s not a football you’ll be kicking. At just size one, this leather beauty will be looking perfect in every
Available from Amaz?on for £29.52.
1992 European Cup Final Shirt
Available from ?Pro:Direct £30.00.
