It’s been another great year of hockey and even if your kids didn’t win as many games as you had hoped, you still owe the coach a big Thank You.
Day in and day out, they show up. From weekend tournaments and evening practices to wiping away tears and giving the umpteenth pep talk, your hockey coach has once again gone above and beyond the call of duty.
Here’s a list of gifts chosen with your favourite hockey coach in mind:
The latest Wayne Gretzky Memoir
Maybe coach needs a hint that it’s time to put his or her feet up and relax. Snag this newly released Wayne Gretzky book, written by The Great One himself.
Another way to let your coach know hockey season is over is to buy her a pair of brand new slippers to keep her feet warm.
A hoodie with their favourite NHL team
No doubt you know what your coach’s favourite team is. There are many ways to help him celebrate his first love. Here’s one example of a vintage-jersey styled hoodie:
Another way to wear your favourite team. Even hockey players have to keep the sun out of their eyes.
Signable Coach Sign
Give your coach a fun memory from the whole team with this signable “coach” art.
A brand new whistle
While you’re at it, go to town and personalize it.
A custom puck
There’s more than one use for a team photo. Why not have it permanently set on a hockey puck?
If your coach has been coaching for years, it’s about time he had a good place to display his hardware. This one can also serve double duty as a key rack.
Whether you want to personalize it, choose one with their favourite team, or celebrate a general love of hockey, everyone loves a good travel mug. Good, as in does not leak.
Then again, maybe the season calls for a water bottle.

Buy a brand new unopened box, find their favourite players or buy an entire team set. When it comes to sports cards, there are a lot of ways you can share the love of hockey with your coach.
there are several directions you could go with this. You could honour their favourite team, personalize it with an engraving, or look for anything hockey related that will help them keep their keys visible without being overly cumbersome.

it helps to know your coaches NHL player or team. If not, I recommend going with Don Cherry or Wayne Gretzky. Bobbleheads make fun gifts and lots of hockey fans collect them.
nothing says “I love hockey” like this stick and puck display clock.
A personalized hockey lamp.
Maybe a clock reminds you too much of timed drills? How about shedding a new light on the game?
