7. Jewellery – Buy It Here
Jewellery is always a great gift! For those who like to wear it and love boxing, there's a variety of chains and pendants available. This particular pendant stood out to me, made with 14k gold. It may be one of the more expensive ones, but the design really sets it off. So if you know somebody that likes flashy gloves and jewellery, why not get them some ‘glove bling'?
You can find this pendant at: Overstock.com
Here are some more for you to look at:
8. Training & Sparring Gloves
Everybody who boxes needs gloves. One set of gloves is almost never enough for a boxer though, so you can't go wrong with buying them a lovely new pair to use. You might need to find out some details first though, like what type of glove they like, and what size they prefer for training and/or sparring. Some people even like different pairs for different things – I know I do! I like 10oz for pad/bag work, and 16oz for sparring. Take a look around the site and you'll find reviews for many of the most popular gloves.
High Quality Gloves
One of the best gifts for boxers you can get is a high quality pair of gloves. From champions to beginners, there isn't a boxer in the world who wouldn't want a pair of top quality Winning or Cleto Reyes. These are some of the best brands available, although they are a bit more expensive, as expected. With that said, at this time of year there are some great deals on, so it might be the best time to grab a pair.
We have a great article right here on the “Top 10 Boxing Gloves” to help you make your choice too.
9. Signed Photo of Their Favourite Fighter – Buy It Here
It's hard to get something for a boxing enthusiast/fanatic that REALLY makes them fill up with joy when they open it. How about a framed photograph of their favourite fighter, which has also been autographed by that fighter? Now THAT would make any serious fan grin with pleasure!
Take a look on this site for the photo above: https://www.presspasscollectibles.com/categories/boxing.html
There's a list of other memorabilia stores at the end of the article as well, so take a look!
10. Posters, Pictures & Memorabilia – Buy It Here
Photos aren't the only thing you can get autographed either. There's a huge amount of programs, magazines and posters available on some of these sites. Pictured here is a poster from the movie “The Hurricane”, signed by the real ‘Hurricane' Rubin Carter. For those people into boxing and boxing movies, you can't get much better than this.
This poster and others are available at: https://www.arcollectibles.com/categories/Boxing/
11. Autographed Gloves & Trunks – Buy It Here
Maybe you need a special gift for your boxer boyfriend, brother, or whoever else you're buying for. Perhaps that person isn't in to pictures, posters and things like that. There's a lot of other signed memorabilia available for them though. Gloves and trunks/shorts are two of the most popular. You can buy walk out robes, title belts, and even cereal boxes amongst other things. These gifts would be ideal for a collector, or any boxing fanatic.

12. Safety/Protective Equipment – Buy IT Here
When buying for somebody new to the sport, protective equipment should be the first thing on your list. A gum shield and a groin guard are the least you will need. You may want to buy a head guard also, as some gyms require them. There are many gyms that don't though, so it usually comes down to the person's preference. These are not only very thoughtful things to buy, but they will also be very useful.
13. Heavy Bag – Buy It Here
Training equipment is something we all want to have. The main reasons we don't are usually space, and the cost of the equipment. Maybe you know a boxing lover that doesn't have a space issue, or even a coach with their own gym. Either way, equipment is a huge concern for people that train often. There's no shortage of items you can buy here, from big space-taking equipment like heavy bags, speed bags, and even a ring if you're mega-rich, to the smaller things like skipping ropes, focus mitts, and body shields. Take a look around on sites like https://www.mmawarehouse.com/collections/punching-bags for more ideas. They are also having a great Black Friday sale, so get in there quick!
14. Desktop Punch Ball – Buy It Here
Is the boxing lover in your life also regularly sat at a desk? If so, this gift is ideal for you. They can place this punch ball on their desk and give it a whack any time they're feeling stressed. It's fun, it's unique, and it's useful. What's not to like?
15. Imitation Title Belts – Buy It Here
Make the person you're buying for feel special by awarding them their very own championship belt. After all, everybody wants to be a champ at some time! You can get imitation belts all over the net, with Amazon being a great place to look for them. Some of the speciality sites for boxing memorabilia also do signed versions of these belts, so you can make the gift even more special if you want to.
16. Boxing Glove Mirror Ornaments – Buy It Here
Here's one for in the car. You can get glove mirror ornaments in all kinds of designs. Some are plain, some have sports team logo's on them, others have national flags or cities on them. There really is something for everybody here if you look around enough, and they make an excellent stocking filler as they are pretty small and also quite cheap.
