Whether the cricket man in your life is a player or simply a fan, there are a number of gifts he's sure to appreciate. Consider the historical context of cricket, as well as the modern aspects when it comes to finding the perfect gift for him.

Cricket DVDs

Give a loved one a selection of cricket DVDs. Focus on buying DVDs which feature his favourite team. The content of the DVDs may range from highlights from famous matches to a history of the game and cricket records. Give careful thought about the extras on the DVDs. Features such as interviews may be a bonus in addition to highlight reels.

Clothing Items for the Cricket Fan

Select a cricket shirt in the colours of his favourite team. For the more sartorially elegant fan, buy a tie in the colours of their favourite team. Add to this gift with a pair of cufflinks in the shape of a bat and ball.

A Cricket Bat

Choose a practical item for a cricket fan, who not only watches the game, but plays as well. Any cricketer who plays cricket will appreciate a bat as a gift. Make sure that the weight of the bat is right for the recipient. Some cricketers prefer a heavy bat to a light one, for instance. Purchase a bat which is made by a high quality bat manufacturer, and is a company that supplies professionals.

Wisden Cricketers' Almanack

Buy the "Wisden Cricketers' Almanack", which will keep a cricket lover occupied long after the cricket season has ended. Most cricket fans love reading about the game's fact and figures, and "Wisden" is known as the most comprehensive book for cricket related facts. Issued annually since 1864, and containing over fifteen hundred pages, "Wisden" includes a mass of information on the past year's cricket matches. The book also includes a cricket records section, covering the best achievements in the history of the game.
