Best Christmas Gift for the Boy That Likes to Play Ball

Featured in

This basketball hoop can withstand extreme weather so you can leave it out, even if it’s not permanently placed anywhere. The base can take sand or water – depending on where you live.

The product itself is great, but be prepared to figure out the assembly on your own; the instructions are baffling.


There’s always time to shoot some hoops. And this makes a terrific gift for the boy that can’t get enough practice in at the park. Though you don’t need to install this into the ground, it is designed to be as weather resistant as possible. The backboard claims to be virtually unbreakable and you can raise or lower it according to the skills of your child. The rim is solid steel and the braces are steel too. The base can be filled with sand or water – and the whole thing is covered by a five-year warranty.

If you don’t have space outdoors, you could always try this indoor hanging basketball game. It’s easy to assemble for play before packing away. Of course, basketball isn’t everyone’s sport and it’s hard to go wrong with a football at this time of the year.
