I can’t believe it is the middle of November already! Have you started your holiday shopping yet? I haven’t, and I’m a little jealous of those of you that are so on top of it!

If you have sports fans on your shopping list, make sure you check out the Ultimate Gift Guide for the Ultimate Sports Fan, for some unique ideas that you probably wouldn’t have thought of (and you can thank me later).

If you would rather make a few gifts yourself, read on for some ideas on wonderful DIY gifts to make in that sports fan’s favorite team colors:

Macrame is making a comeback, and these Easy Macrame Friendship Bracelets are a lot easier to make than they look. Whip some up for your favorite teenagers, in their school colors, for a fun stocking stuffer.

Here’s a Braided Bracelet variation, that would also look great in her team colors:

For those sports fans who have to brave the cold to follow their team (football and hockey fans know what I’m talking about), why not create something to help them stay warm and cozy. The PomPom Fleece Hat and Fleece Infinity Scarf are both super easy to make and require NO sewing!

And this 3-color Fleece Spirit Scarf looks complicated, but only takes 15 minutes to make!

For the “green” person on your list who loves to recycle, how about turning one or two of their old t-shirts into a new T-Shirt Scarf?

And let’s not forget that friend who is always throwing game day parties, and decorating her home in all her favorite team colors. This Gorgeous Outdoor Wreath takes a little time, but is worth the effort.
