Got Someone in Your Life Who Eats, Breathes & Lives the Game of Cricket? Here are 12 Unusual Gifts for Cricket Fans Which are Just Perfect for That Friend of Yours! (2020)

In India, it is next to impossible not to have a large number of individuals in your family and social circle who are avid lovers of the game of cricket! If you are planning to give an unusual gift to these cricket fans, then you have come to the right place. We have curated this list of unique gifts that these cricket fans will simply love and remember you fondly for a long time.

Popularity of Cricket in India

Though cricket is not India's national game, it is, without doubt, the most popular game in India, followed by, debated by and loved by millions. Cricket has become more like a religion that unifies the entire country and transcends all boundaries of regions, languages, ages, gender, and religion. From the time Kapil Dev lifted the Prudential World Cup at Lords in 1983 to Virat Kohli being the top batsman in the world in 2020, the popularity of cricket has only increased by leaps and bounds over the years leaving all other forms of sports far behind. The cricketers have assumed a larger than life persona and a demi-God status in India.

From the narrow alleyways to the school grounds, from small community parks to the stadiums, you would rarely find an open space in India that has not witnessed a cricket match. Every Indian from their childhood is extremely passionate about the game and has numerous advice and critical observations on how the Indian team should have performed on the field and why they lost or won. And needless to say, you must have someone in your social circle who eats, lives and breathes the game of cricket!

Important Factors to Consider When Buying an Unusual Gift for a Cricket Lover

  • Age of the Cricket Fan: As mentioned above, cricket transcends all ages. It is, therefore, crucial for you to consider the age of the cricket fan for whom the gift is meant for. A cricket kit might be an excellent choice for a school-going kid, whereas it may not be suitable for a middle-aged or senior citizen person for whom a more display-type of gift may be appropriate.

  • Quality of the Cricket Gift: Most unusual cricket gifts are created by not-so-familiar brands. Consequently, you need to evaluate and satisfy yourself with the quality of the cricket gift once you have shortlisted a few options. You can check out the product reviews on multiple e-commerce websites to get a good idea about the cricket gift you are planning to buy. Another way to ascertain the cricket gift manufacturer is to check out the website of the manufacturer itself (if available) and see how the product and its specifications are listed there along with quality certifications (if any) which the manufacturer might be having.

  • Utility of the Cricket Gift: Another important factor to consider when you are buying a cricket-themed gift is to understand its utility from the perspective of the recipient. Like, if you are planning to give the gift to an office-going senior executive who does not wear cufflinks, then a cricket-themed desktop clock will have more utility for the person rather than a pair of cricket-themed cufflinks which will get thrown to the back of the drawer anyway.

  • Personal Preferences of the Cricket Fan: You also need to keep the personal preferences and temperament of the cricket fan in mind while deciding on an unusual cricket gift for him. For instance, if the recipient is a passionate Dhoni fan, then there is no need to give him a Virat Kohli themed gift. He will simply not appreciate it. Similarly, a brooding, serious and mature cricket fan will react differently than a light-hearted individual on receiving a quirky cricket-themed gift.

  • Cost of the Cricket Gift: Cricket-themed gifts are available from a few hundred rupees to many thousands of rupees. Although you may want to give the very best to your cricket lover, it is always prudent to select a gift that remains in your budget and, at the same time, conveys your thoughts and feelings adequately.
