Basketball and baseball have been my son’s favorite sports since he could walk and play. Over the years, he’s really taken an interest in basketball and right now, it’s all he wants to play. He asked for a basketball net for his birthday and we treated him to it a few months ago so he could enjoy it while the weather was still warm here in Jersey. Even on these colder days, he still wants to go out and play. Right now basketball is his life and he’s having so much fun. As I’ve been doing some Christmas shopping for him, I knew I had to pick up a few basketball inspired gifts for him. Now that’s he’s getting older (not sure where the last 11 years went!) he’s alot more into clothes and sneakers and is perfectly happy with those kinds of gifts. So when I saw the new NBA Reflective Collection Clothing Line at Target, I knew he’d love it.
I picked him up an outfit that I know he’ll love but I wanted to get a little creative with wrapping it. Since he’s all about basketball right now, I decided to make a little DIY Basketball Gift Bag to make it fun. Not only did the bag look cute but he’ll have a little net he can put at his desk or in his room to play with when he can’t get outside.
To create the bag, I picked up a $1 mini basketball net, two mini basketballs, an orange gift bag (you could do the same thing with a gift box and orange wrapping paper) and some black tissue paper.
I wrapped the clothes and put them in the bag and added a few sheets of paper to the top. Using some packing tape, I attached the mini net to the top of the bag by the handles.
To attach the balls to the backboard, I used small pieces of velcro. That way he could take them off to play with and re-attach them when he was done.
I love the finished gift and can’t wait to give it to him. If you have a basketball fan at home, these fashion pieces would make a great gift idea for them or anyone who’s a fan of athleisure fashion.
The exclusive NBA apparel is available at select Target stores. The unisex youth line is available in sizes 4-16 and it’s also available in mens sizes too. With shirts, jackets, shorts and pants, there’s something for everyone. The details and craftsmanship really blew me away. The pieces had reflective elements, zipper pulls and tech fleece combined with quality fabric, which is a must for me. Prices in the collection range from $11.99 – $34.99. Not only was it fashionable and affordable but the quality is top of the line.
