12. Hockey Laces Bottle Cooler, $9.99
If you didn't drink before you became a hockey fan, you probably started after the first few playoff series you watched with your team involved (assuming you were over 21, of course).
Even if you prefer your drinks non-alcoholic, this bottle cooler is perfect for keeping them nice and refreshing. Not to mention the laces give it that authentic fan feel.
11. License Plate Frame, $18.99
I've given a team-specific license plate frame as a gift to almost every family member I have, and it's been a hit every time. Simple, cheap, and an easy way for sports fans to show off their pride, this is a safe gift for any friend or family member.
10. Fidget Spinner, $8.88
I know, the fidget spinner fad is kind of annoying, and is probably winding down anyways. Which is exactly why this is the perfect gag gift! Give your friends something they can laugh about and play with ironically, all while showing off their favorite hockey team.
9. Board Shorts, $44.99
Most of the time, Caps fans only get to show off their team spirit in the winter. There are plenty of hockey-themed jackets, caps, sweaters, etc. for sports fans. How many people get to proudly display their Caps fandom at the beach?
Give the gift of year-round Caps gear to your favorite beach bum hockey fan.
7. Knit Scarf, $15.22
Let's face it; hockey arenas are cold. It makes sense, what with all the ice, but it doesn't always make for the most comfortable viewing. This comfortable, stylish scarf will keep you warm while you lose your voice and throw your hat on the ice after yet another Ovechkin hat trick.
5. Capitals Sportula, $24.99
Anybody can grill with a spatula; it takes a real Caps fan to grill with a sportula. Not only is it a high-quality utensil that shows off your Caps pride, but it doubles as a bottle opener, which is convenient when trying to refresh yourself after standing next to the hot grill.
3. Ugly 3-D Sweater, $85.00
Lots of people have ugly Christmas sweaters, and some even have sports-themed ugly Christmas sweaters. But how many have 3-D ugly Christmas sweaters? I'm guessing not many.
This sweater is not only the perfect level of "ugly" for your next Christmas party, but the 3-D nature makes for a perfect conversation-starter with any friend or family member.
2. Capitals Greatest Plays Slate Coasters, $50.00
These stylish, unique coasters are not only high quality (hence the price), but they allow fans to relive some of the most historic plays in their favorite team's history.
Check out the X's and O's behind some of the most iconic moments in Caps history, and keep your tables clean while doing it.
1. Alex Ovechkin Jersey, $169.99
Simply put, an Ovechkin jersey is a must-own item for any Caps fan in the last decade. He's been the face of the franchise for years, and if it's in your price range, this should be priority #1 for any Caps fan.
Hockey jersey are definitely the most comfortable and socially acceptable to wear of the 4 major sports (don't @ me NFL), and if you're going to own one, Ovi is the one to own. Don't overthink it. Sometimes the easy answer is the right answer.
