1. New Limited Edition CFL WWMO Gear
Fresh off the new brand launch, the CFL has released a limited edition set of merch with the new “What We’re Made of” slogan and logo including hats, mugs, phone cases and more. We especially like the dope new “Hustle” tee.
2. Our League, Our Country Coffee Table Book – By: Johany Jutras
We’ve documented her trip all season on The Snap and now the final product is finally ready! Johany Jutras’ #CFLRoadTrip book is the perfect gift for any CFL fan. The imagery is incredible and it truly captures what it means to be a CFL fan.
3. Tuck Shop Toques
Straight up, these hats are awesome. Available for all 9 CFL teams, these are the perfect gift for a CFL fan, and as they say on their site.. If you’re not a football fan, we might just turn you into one with these authentically Canadian (and pretty damn stylish) pom’d caps.
4. Edmonton Eskimos Championship Gear
Now while this might not be for everyone, if you’ve got an Eskimo fan on your shopping list, this is the ultimate go to. We especially enjoy the shirt with the picture of Mike Reilly hoisting the cup.
5. The Roughriders Ugly Sweater
You’ve seen the trend. Ugly sweaters. Well, the Riders are well aware and have released a special edition ugly Xmas sweater for the 2015 holiday season. The Rider Store also has a plethora of holiday gear for that special watermelon head in your life.
6. The Ticats Elf on a Shelf
You’ve all seen the Elf on a Shelf phenomenon, well, the Ticats have now released their own, complete with a black and gold hat!
7. #CFLInspired New Era Hat Collection
Every year each team selects one player to specially design a hat for their team. This year was no different, and while many have sold out, a few still remain!
8. Upper Deck CFL Trading Cards
Available through the CFLPA shop, fans can now own their favourite players football card. The collection includes jersey patch cards, special edition signed cards and other great stuff.
9. Season Tickets!
Of course we’d be remiss if we didn’t suggest the pinnacle of CFL gifts… season tickets! The gift of season tickets can change everything for a CFL fan! (Beers not included)
And for that special Argos fan, maybe a deposit for new season tickets at BMO Field? This also gets you first access to Grey Cup 2016 tickets so that’s pretty sweet!

Most team stores offer a variety of ornaments for your Xmas tree. We especially like this traditional Alouettes version for that angry bird in your life.
11. Oyo Toys
New to the CFL stable of cool stuff, Oyo has come out with mini-figures for each CFL team. A great gift for kids (or desk trinket)! Who doesn’t want a mini-toy of the CFL Most Outstanding Player?
12. BC Lions Xmas Gear
The Lions might not get the most snow in winter, but they certainly came through with a bunch of Xmas gear in 2015. This will make for a ROAR-ing holiday season.
If that doesn’t set you up for success, we don’t know what will…
