What to give to a boxer and those involved in combat sports
Birthday, anniversary, Christmas--any occasion is good to give a gift to a loved one. However, choosing a gift for an athlete who practices combat sports (boxing, kick boxing, muay thai, mma, etc.) can prove to be a rather difficult choice, especially if you are not experienced in these sports.
How many times will you have asked yourself, "is it the right gift?", "maybe he already has it...", "what if he doesn't like it or doesn't do anything with it?". Don't worry, we have written a very short guide to buying the perfect gift for those who practice boxing or any other combat sport. Unlike the other guides you'll find online and are just for catching clicks :-) this one is written by people who have been practicing combat sports and selling combat sports items for over 20 years.
Let's start with an important premise, unless you know a lot about combat sports products or have agreed with the gift recipient on a particular item, we advise against venturing into choosing technical products, i.e.: protectors, Boxing gloves (with one exception that we will see later), ring wear, etc.. To give you an example, on Combat Arena there are over 300 types of Boxing gloves, all with different characteristics. The possibility of choosing the product unsuitable for the gift recipient's use is very high indeed. But we have the solution. In fact, 5 solutions!
Five irresistible gift ideas for those who practice combat sports.
1. Casual/sports clothing
Let's start with a type of product that would seem unrelated to combat sports, thesportswear. I guess you already know this, but those who practice combat sports want the world to know about it outside the gym. And what better way than by wearing a beautiful sports garment signed by one of the many brands that also produce technical equipment? At Combat Arena you will find a wide selection of Jumpsuits, Sweatshirts, T-shirt, Trousers and more from Leone 1947, Venum, Pride Or Die, Fairtex, etc. Don't be afraid to make a mistake, by choosing one of these brands you are on the safe side.
2. Gym accessories
If choosing a technical product is a challenge, gifting a nice Sports bag gym will take you out of any embarrassment. The Sports bag is an indispensable accessory to hold all the protective gear and sportswear needed to practice these sports and has no special features to select, other than size. Other indispensable accessories include, for example, tools for the maintenance and cleaning of Boxing gloves and protectors.
3. Working out at home like at the gym
If the person receiving the gift has expressed to you a desire to work out at home as well, a good Heavy bag is the one for you. We will not dwell too much on this topic because we have written a guide dedicated to choosing the Heavy bag which you can find in this blog. Consider as a cheaper alternative, buying smaller workout accessories that can be used at home such as the Double end bag or the Speed ball. You can find some of them here.
4. Boxing gloves Cleto Reyes, won't be able to say no to you
It is not easy to choose from so many Boxing gloves, but giving a pair of Cleto Reyes is like giving a Ferrari to a sports car enthusiast. Cleto Reyes is one of the world's most famous brands in the production of Boxing gloves for boxing. They are handcrafted in Mexico and have been used by the greatest boxers of all time. If you choose to give gifts of Cleto Reyes we recommend one pair in particular that is good for bag and sparring. Let's talk about the Boxing gloves Cleto Reyes with Velcro closure code CE6. The code is indicated in the product name and you can't go wrong.
5. Gift card
If after all the above suggestions you still have doubts... well let him/her choose with a gift card. At Combat Arena you can choose the cut you prefer, from 25 € to 200 €.
I hope our advice has been helpful to you and that you can make the person you want to give this beautiful gift happy. And remember: if the product doesn't fit, you have 30 days from the date you receive it to request a return. The return on Combat Arena is free (see the conditions on the site). Finally, we would like to remind you that our customer service is always at your disposal for product questions and advice.
