Whether you have a life partner, a pickleball partner or both (lucky you!), Valentine's Day is a great time to take a moment to appreciate the people we love. We have a number of gifts at PickleballCentral which are sure to spread those fuzzy feelings, so if you want to find something special this time of year, take a look at these charming ideas.
This one is a classic for a reason: Most people love to receive gifts with a bit of shine. From high class silver to functional pewter or glitzy crystals, we have something for everyone. Bedazzle your loved one(s) with pickleball-inspired jewelry to show you appreciate their style, but also their dedication on the courts. Why settle for a generic piece of jewelry when you can combine it with one of their favorite hobbies?
If you're shopping for someone who isn't the jewelry-wearing type but feel they'd still appreciate the look, you can always remove the charm from one of our necklaces to turn it into a keychain or zipper pull.
For a useful gift that still expresses affection we recommend our Passion Shirt. This image features a heart-shaped pickleball and reflects a love for the game and the world at large. You can have this printed on a number of designs so it's perfectly suited to the recipient, whether they'd appreciate moisture-wicking material or soft and comfy cotton.
If you don't think that would be a hit, then we still have over 40 designs you can choose from to create a shirt your partner would enjoy. Nothing says 'thoughtful' quite like a custom-made gift! If you'd like a few other suggestions, additional relationship-centered designs are our Circle of Friends and Pickleball Pride shirts.
Another practical yet considerate route you can take is getting your partner a pickleball accessory. If their grip is looking a little worn or they've been complaining about losing hold of their paddle, a new overgrip could be just the thing to fix their concerns. If you want to help them keep their gear in top condition, they could make use of a paddle cover. Maybe they could use a better bag to carry their equipment or a glove to defend against the cold outdoors.
All of these are helpful to their game, plus they'll be reminded of you whenever they use them.
At the end of the day your continued love and support is all that a partner needs, but getting them a little reminder of that affection is a nice gesture too. We hope everyone has a wonderful V-Day whether it's romantic or spent with friends.
