Sports and the holidays have something unique in common: They bring people together. There are few greater feelings in the world than sharing the court or field with a teammate and striving to achieve the same goal. It is one of the most unifying experiences. It’s perhaps just as powerful as reuniting with the team you’ve been a player for throughout your whole life—your family. They may not be as present in your day-to-day activities as they used to be, but the holidays are the perfect time for getting the gang back together to reflect on past experiences and to start building new ones.
When you roll sports, family, and the holidays into one, something special can happen. Check out these videos for last-minute holiday inspiration, and see how giving a gift that matters (to the ones who matter most) strengthens even the strongest bonds.
