The holiday season is here, and chances are you still have shopping to do. Whether you need a gift for the Cardinals fan in your life or want suggestions to give your friends and family for yourself, here you go.
Cardinals tickets: The easy gift solution for any Cards fan — and these holiday tickets go on sale today at 10 a.m. Central Time. All-inclusive tickets are one option, available for the Champions Club, Commissioner’s Box right next to the Cards dugout, Homer’s Landing in the bleachers and more.
Holiday ticket packs, for five and 10 games, also go on sale today. There are packs that include Opening Day as well as various giveaways (kids high socks on May 19!) and even a pack that’s just for games against the Cubs. Even if you aren’t interested in purchasing tickets, click the link anyway for the pic of Yadi. Is a poster version of that for sale? (Please?)
Cardinals headphones: We gave a pair of these away in October, and they’re available now at a special price for the holidays.
The headphones are from BiGR Audio, the makers of the official headphones for Major League Baseball. They have the same tech specs as Beats by Dre, plus come in a Cardinals collector’s bamboo box. You can even use them with your iPhone, iPad or iPod. And, if you use them with your phone, they even have a built-in call answer button and microphone.
The holiday special is $75 off the regular price, which makes them $74. Use the coupon code “bigrcards” after you click “Add to Cart” here.
Furnish your family room: Cardinals merchandise covers the entire spectrum, and you can even furnish your house — or a room — with decor that reflects your love of the Redbirds. Bedroom? Yep, there’s a variety of bedding, pillows, blankets and even a night light available. Kitchen? Of course a variety of glassware and mugs are available but so are wine glasses, salt and pepper shakers and even a toaster that gives you a perfect STL logo in your bread.
Then there’s furniture perfect for the family room, although it all comes at a price. Check out this coffee table or side table with the Cardinals logo. Or several different recliners, including a really cute kids one. Here’s my favorite: a Cardinals Tiffany table lamp. (Maybe you’re looking for a gift for your favorite blogger?)
Jewelry and watches: And if you don’t want to buy your favorite blogger a lamp, either Tara or I would love this bracelet — as would any female Cardinals fan you know. Find more details and order it here. Prefer other jewelry besides a bracelet? There are plenty of options.
Watches are a great gift too, for men or women. Check out the men’s watches available here, in a variety of styles. This women’s watch is awesome, and there are a couple other watches here and this one also. Need a watch for the kid in your life? Here you go.
Game-used memorabilia: Want to give something unique? All of these definitely fit that description — a selection of items made from game-used memorabilia. If money is no object, check out this stool made from a game-used base … for only &949.99 plus shipping. (Free shipping should be available when you spend that much, right?) There also are cuff links or a necklace that include a piece of a game-used baseball, as well as a wallet. (Seems a bit ironic the wallet is the least expensive product on that page.)
Burton History Tree: Finally, here’s the perfect accessory for any wall in your home or office — the Cardinals family tree. Tara wrote about this back in October, and it’s available at a discount through the end of December.
The content of each Burton History Tree is uniquely arranged in chronological order and sized by significance. By combining names, images and sketches, Bruce Burton (the originator and artist) creates dramatic artwork that is the ideal conversation piece. In the case of the St. Louis Cardinals, player names and historical images form the foliage and the base/roots of the tree depicts elements, events, stories and places that are synonymous with the history of the team.
To receive 10 percent off an unlimited number of orders and products, include the code “TBW” when you order at BurtonHistoryTrees.com.
