It happens every year. July 4th comes and goes and we find ourselves in the dog days of summer. While there’s plenty to enjoy about the nice summer weather in the weeks leading up to the fall, there’s also a slight feeling of emptiness, especially with NFL fans. For a lot of fans, the start of NFL training camp signifies something refreshing. They get to see their favorite team assembled after the offseason, practicing together in preparation for the upcoming season. If you’re planning on spending a day or even a week watching your team at training camp, you have to make sure you have the right NFL apparel and gear to support them. Check out the guide below for all the best NFL gifts for training camp that’ll have you tailgating in mid-season form!

Of course, the #1 thing that signifies you’re a fan is wearing apparel featuring your favorite team’s colors or logo. T-shirts and sweatshirts are always a go-to item, but you can make your game day outfit extra unique with some sweatpants or leggings sporting your team’s logo. Of course, you could go even more subtle with a simple pair of shoes to go with anything.

Even practical items are a great way to support your team. Carry all of your things in a team logo backpack. They’re perfect for training camp or any sort of day outing that would require you to carry some extra gear. If you're buying a gift for a special fan, get them an NFL team logo watch and wallet set so they'll always be on time for the game and have something to carry their cash for game day purchases. A fan doesn't always have to bring their fandom with them, so gifts for the home are a fun way to help accessorize their fan caves.
