There’s never been a better time to be a female soccer player. Celebrate yourself or the ones you love this season with one of these awesome gifts.

1. Wolfpack by Abby Wambach $10.99

Friends, family, teams and yes, wolfpacks depend on one thing to thrive: togetherness. This tidy little book is a great gift for even the most resistant of readers.

Based on her inspiring, viral 2018 commencement speech to Barnard College’s graduates in New York City, New York Times bestselling author, two-time Olympic gold medalist and FIFA World Cup champion Abby Wambach delivers her empowering rally cry for women to unleash their individual potential, unite with their pack, and emerge victorious together.

2. Soccerbirds coloring book $7.95

If being part of a Wolf Pack still feels a little scary, how about a Soccer Birds coloring book to light up the kids this holiday season? SoccerBirds are new and designed for children, promoting joy and enthusiasm for soccer. They are inclusive, having no prescribed age, nationality, gender or league affiliation – this allows every child to ‘see themselves’ playing the game.

3. That’s the Tea, T! £24

Who can forget the most unique and viral goal celebration in all of women’s soccer history? This was the moment that ended a great run by England’s Lionesses and cemented Alex Morgan as a cultural, pond hopping icon. We wanted to showcase one British company that we love. It’s Deadball Football Design studio. Their street wear, while mostly geared to men, is stylish and hits all the hipster high notes you may want this season.

4. Playbook Products with the Game Plans $40 Coasters/$15 Mugs

Seriously people, between bouts of shopping and holiday cavorting, let us remember the high point of the summer  when the USWNT took it to the world in France.

Here’s the great thing, it’s never over if you keep it alive in your head. This is why we were so pumped when we came across Playbook Products. Each product tells a story, one that you can share with your guests or relive as you’re waiting for a match to begin. Check out Rose Lavelle’s historic move to put the USA up 2-1 against The Netherlands. A moment to never forget.

5. Friday Night Football Candle by Homesick $25.46

Let’s face it, whether it’s our gear or even us, soccer doesn’t always lead to smelling great, and that’s why you need one of these. Crisp air and cedar wood bleachers. Breathing in the smell of rich leather mixed with fresh grass, concession popcorn, and of course, victory. Travel back to days of living and breathing your team colors and celebrating with friends on a Friday Night.

6. Soccer is my Soulmate T-Shirt $31

You ever feel a little crazy because you love the game so much it feels kind of…weird? Welcome to the club! We just wanted to wear this sentiment loud and proud and say that this is more than a game to us. If you know someone who feels the same way, buy it for them and use the coupon code SPIRIT19 for 10% off.

7. Foudy Crew Neck by Goal 5 $49

Goal 5 is on a hat-trick for being featured in our gift guide. They’re the only brand we’ve featured in all three, which means we not only love their products, but the message they send out to the world too. This year we chose the Julie Foudy, long sleeve training top. Not too tight and body skimming, it’s fitted through the chest with a longer hem to fall just right, and comes with with low profile thumbholes when you want more coverage. The captain’s seaming on the upper arm adds a little authority as we honor the leader in you.

8. Foundation Twist-Brush SPF 30 by Sweat Cosmetics $42

No gift guide would be complete without a product from one of our favorite partners, Sweat Cosmetics. Created by athletes, for athletes, these women know a thing or two about what the true meaning of beauty is: strength, power, and confidence, on the field or off.

The Twist-Brush is simply perfect. A 3-in-1 foundation, skincare and sunscreen, in a refillable, washable twist brush that provides light coverage for women on the go. The Mineral Foundation powder combines makeup, skincare, and sunscreen in a convenient, tactical-grip twist brush for light to medium coverage that protects and repairs active skin.

9.Bath Soak for Athletes by Muscle Rehab $18.99

Pushing and shoving doesn’t only happen on the pitch. Ever been to a sale rack at Bloomingdale’s? The soak at the end of the game or a high-octane holiday shopping spree can make even the toughest baller need a break. Enter Bath Soak for Athletes. Ease muscle soreness with USP Epsom salt & arnica extract. Formulated with essential oils, including eucalyptus, peppermint, vetiver, and ginger. All Natural. All Good.

If you’re not getting banged up and bruised on the pitch, you better watch out for those crazy shoppers.

10. Storelli Bodysheild Crop Top $49.99

The power of the crop top should never be denied. Since Brandi Chastain ripped her shirt off and showed the world what power under a jersey looks like, the sports bra/crop top has become a go-to for pros and youth players alike. Storelli, the leader in protective soccer gear, ups the style factor and adds the all important element of protection. Freedom on the field never felt, or looked, so good.

Armored with 3mm XRD® Extreme Impact Protection ergonomic pads on ribs that absorb up to 90% of impact. Features removable 3mm slow-rebound foam chest pad for ease of chest trapping and protection.

What would a GSN gift guide be without a nod to the pink-haired queen herself, Megan Rapinoe?
